The way the game brings Franklin and Michael together again is clever, and it leads to the first big perspective shift during game play. It's so gracefully handled that it almost doesn't even register at first. You repossess a car from Michael's garage, and he turns out to be hidden in the back seat. Once you crash the car back into the dealership, Franklin walks off and you stay behind as Michael to lay a smackdown on the crooked dealer. I've always been more interested in the sandbox aspects of the "GTA" titles, but this time around, the narrative is so much more focused and interesting in the way they play with it that I find myself engrossed to a different degree.
