104. The idea hunting by standing on top of the Jeep worked so great in Red Dead Redemption (with the horse drawn carriages) as animals will at least have trouble getting to you. Unless you drive it into the water & stand on the wrecked vehicle as it won't help with sharks.

114. Jason is in fact Nomad's long lost son. His previous life as an idiotic partying teenage moron reflected the weak stupid linear games of the open-world-tropical-paradise universe (released in the last 5 years) such as Far Cry 2 and Crysis 2. His transformation into a badass was him finding his long-gone father's true path, the path of Crysis, the path of truly open world, intelligent AI and absolute player freedom to manipulate the AI and create random unique scenarios on the go. Far Cry 3 is Jason's finding of Nomad's lifestyle and embracing it. The son has finally returned and he did NOT disappoint.. Crysis is Far Cry 2 and Far Cry 3 is FC3 ;)
