Activities are optional mini-games unrelated to the main storyline in Saints Row.
Activities are optional, but are encouraged because they are the easiest way to earn Respect, which is required to continue the storyline. As well as Respect, they also unlock Cash and Unlockables.
The majority of Activities in Saints Row have one instance for each of the three gangs, with eight levels at each location.
Unlockables are awarded after completing level eight of each Activity, and a bonus unlockable after completing all three instances.
Most activities are started from markers which are marked on the Map.
