Vice City Stories: Happy endings

sir cucumber's bitter corner, the resigned gamerEndless, aimless cop-evading mayhem after finishing a GTA has never held my interest, but I appreciate the extendability. And it's fun for my little 9-year old brother.

Thing is, even though Rockstar has never let plot get in the way of a good game, it's always made sense to see the game's antagonist still running around wrecking shit. Until Vice City Stories:

Not like anyone could care or couldn't guess how a GTA ends, but spoilers hidden below >>

Nameless GTA 3 guy blows his tricky bitch ex-girlfriend out of the sky and then blasts his new cokehead whore for talking too much before returning to his silent sociopathy.

Tommy Vercetti goes all scarface on everyone- except for the whole dying in a pool of his own piss and blood part- and steps out to enjoy the town that now belongs to him.

CJ survives a riot, takes down the rival gang, busts a cap in Samuel L. Jackson, and goes out to scope da 'hood.

Tony Cipriani soldiers up and soldiers on.

And tightass Vic Vance tells everyone he's sick of being a criminal and that it's time to go home to take care of his mom...Somehow he just ends up running around Vice City stealing cars and shooting people at random though.

I liked the ending to GTA 3. Why don't they all end with tricky bitches getting killed?
