Don't Hold Back on Cool Weapons or Cool Things to Do
In some games, you fight and fight and finally get hold of some cool weapons. Suddenly you're fighting the boss and then the game is over. In such games, the player never gets to really enjoy some of the best weapons. Why not give the player some extremely cool weapons right from the start?
And even if you hold back on giving the player cool weapons, you can at least give him or her cool things to do. Returning to Grand Theft Auto III, even before you've collected an awesome arsenal, there's no end of very cool and fun things you can do in the game. Just a few of these are: You can run people off roads, create a chain reaction of exploding cars, mow people down with your vehicle, toss people out of their cars, steal their cars, drive off the road, or chase criminals in a stolen police car.
