Playing as Trevor, I picked up a hitchhiker while I was driving around. She was wearing a white dress and kept going on and on about how many drugs she had been taking that weekend while talking to her boyfriend on the phone as I drove. My better sense told me not to, but I was curious about the Altruist Cult so I decided I'd make an unscheduled stop at their headquarters to drop her off. An old man took her away in tears, handed me $1000, and I was left alone with my guilty conscience.
Instead of getting back in the car, I decided to explore some of the mountain and admire the scenery to get my mind off of the horrible thing I had just done. I saw beautiful vistas, majestic elk, treacherous roads, dense forests, and I had almost forgotten my misdeed when out of nowhere a mountain lion pounced on me from out of my view and made me his lunch. Wasted.
Turns out karma's a motherfucker even in crime-riddled open world games.
