I just started playing the game today. I'm two hours in, and I already have about 1500+ dollars! I feel that it's really easy to get money with looting, selling items, mini quests, etc. Also, in the guide it says that some stores will sell weapons for free!
So, do you usually get to feel the scarcity of money in the game eventually? Basically, do items become expensive or anything like that? Do you ever really need to do quests to get some specific weapons or expensive items that cannot be obtained unless you really have a lot of money?
I was expecting the game to be more of a survival type game, where money really matters and it's not easy to become 'rich' so quickly.
