So, you'd think that after having beaten Vice City, I'd be satisfied with my VC accomplishments, right? Right?

WRONG!

One of the coolest statistics in the game has to be the “highest media attention” statistic. When I started doing what I'm about to describe, the most media attention I'd ever gotten was the front page story of the Vice Courier newspaper.

I stocked myself with full armor and health, a few automatic weapons and my trusty Magnum. I walked outside Vercetti Estate and blew about seven of my own men away. Immediate two-star warning level. I went back inside, where a few cops were waiting for me. Wasted them, got to three stars. Then four, five, and eventually six. After awhile, cops started (apparently) coming through the windows in my office-- re-spawning out of nowhere. No FBI guys or soldiers entered my estate, though.

I must've taken out about 300 or so cops. Every once in awhile, I'd check my media attention stat, and I was pleased to see that it started going up! I got to “national news, 4 a.m.” and up to “national TV coverage”. As I was on the roof, shooting an automatic weapon at a tank far below (a useless gesture, really, but apparently a strong political statement!) I was suddenly getting live national TV coverage, and then I became international news! After that, I became a national crisis!

Becoming a national crisis... that's an accomplishment for any one person. LOL...

ya i've started blowing away my own men for guns and cash once or twice because i never try to take it beyond 2 stars. i've gotten up to 4, and the cops were respawing, so i headed to the roof, grabed the maverick, and took off for the police badges in the east island, and the police chopper finally showed up and took me out and i blew up in the chopper while it was going down...

Dude if you get the chance snipe a guy out of his tank and then run with it. I know its not much but it feels so good if you can get up to 6 stars and then get away with it without getting wasted or busted.
