Buy a copy of Payday 2, it’s great. It follows a team of mastermind criminals, some of whom make their return from the original. All are playable, and all are capable of theft. From petty theft, to full blown bank robberies.

The game features 11 heists which take place over several days and several locations. These heists appear randomly on the "server selection" map called Crime Net. This randomly creates ‘jobs’ and leaves them there for approximately 30 seconds, giving you enough time to make at least a snap decision. Not very long for a supposed bank robber planning an evasive attack, but we'll get to that soon. The heists at hand are classed by a rarity level, meaning some appear less often. Kind of annoying seeing as there are only 11 heists.

Overkill Software created a way around this to make them seem fresh. A levelling system as well as an unlock system dependent on cash from payday. After each heist you will earn cash, which can be pumped back into your character. The money can go towards equipment to make the heists seem easier, aesthetic changes to your outfit, support items like flashbangs and camera spikes to null those spies in the sky.

It makes the game seem a lot more interesting, and having random rare heists come up doesn't let you rush through the game at the speed of light. If you find you're getting good? Raise the difficulty level.

Each heist has random spawn points of civilians and staff from the building you're robbing. This proves challenging in itself, especially if you're the kind of robber to sneak through the rafters of that large house at the end of the street.  Possibilities are endless. Remember though, if you're the type of criminal to run in guns blazing, expect heavy attention from the cops. Be mindful that while you are flinging hot lead in their directions, you've got civilians darting around like headless chickens. Watch out, these can seriously affect your bank balance at the end of your shift. If the civilians are winding you up, cable tie their hands, kick them to the floor, and in a comedic manner, shout in their face. That's right people, there is a key dedicated to shouting, who knew shouting could be so fun.

No one wants to wait all that time for payday, get involved and feel like it's payday every day. And when you finish and set your alarm for 07:00, it'll all be ok.
