voted bodyguards because I'd rather have a limited amount of guns for realism and variation. Max Payne was awesome in the sense that you had the feeling of having to take what you can get. Guns ran out of ammo and you had to pick up something else the enemy was carrying and use that. GTAIV got pretty dull in the sense that I had an AK with 2000 bullets and all I had to do was point-->shoot rinse/repeat. Rarely ran out of ammo or felt I needed to change guns.
on topic: I like the idea of hiring expendable henchmen to be bullet sponges mainly
