The only point I don't agree with the developer here about the scav car chase is that the demo narrator said this, "random encounters like these are an example of how your actions directly influence your open world experience." This entire car chase scene is not random and is scripted to the point where you don't need to shoot at the ai and you can wait for them to crash especially on the lower difficulties cause the ai can't hit the broad side of a barn and when they do the damage is minimal. Nor will it ever happen again if you were to disrupt the scavs again. Or any other faction for that matter. *SPOILER WARNING FOR SENTANCES AHED*(in case for those still playing through the first time.) The only other car chases are the same way, when Takemura saves you from the dump and saka ninjas chase you, when johnny is being chased in the flashback, or when saving saul. They are not random by any means. Nor are there more car chase events than the ones I mentioned. If there are side missions that I may have not done to do those extra car chases feel free to correct me, but I don't remember anymore car chases than that. EDIT: The nomad intro car chase as well is scripted. heavily
Also for the mods who will eventually come across this post I fully intend to be civil about the discussion within this thread and hope others will too because I want to hear what others have to say/ discuss further about this as well. And I hope you don't close the thread because it's related to the Schreier article.
Also thank you to the devs for putting your all into the game and respect all the work you have done to get the game to the point it currently sits (this is not sarcasm) I genuinely enjoyed the main story and side stories even though there were points I wished I could move further in different directions within those points that didn't exist. You guys have made a very solid foundation for a game that only has the potential to go upward as long as you guys work on the title. Keep up the good work and wish you all no crunch.
EDIT(6:42pm):Also I really want to thank everybody for being civil because I have a feeling this post may stay up.
