GTA IV has thought of a lot of things, except maybe showing the locations of birds shot (wiping out a plague is one of the side things to do in the game) and locations of stunt jumps completed.

I have been working on killing all the pigeons, which has greatly increased my play time in the game. My addiction level in the game is “Downward Spiral,” and I am at around 81% completion. I have to wonder about why the hours keep going up so much after that, since I believe I will have finished everything there is to do in the game long before 180 hours. I could understand it if the game counted the time played, but not saved because the game crashed – it crashes a lot, hence my somewhat slow progress.
