Great community, character development gets you hooked but your gangers will eventually die and you know it. If you're careful you can live long enough to take out a bunch of people with you when you go....
Free trial lets you get into the game and learn the basic mechanics, you can't own your own cars and fix them up but you can find out if you like the game before subscribing.
Very inexpensive sub, about a third the price of most.
Great game, needs more features, but the devs have announced many more coming and they are releasing updates at a steady pace. Highly recommended to anyone who is a fan of games like Minecraft, Dwarf fortress and diablo (these were the inspirations for the game)
