What? Wait! Oh, so that is why no university in their right mind will accept wikipedia as a credible source. Sarcasm aside, wikipedia's content is user submitted, so take everything you read with a grain of salt/outright skepticism.

As far as the topic goes... this has been beaten more than a red-headed stepchild, so let's make a deal. If you want Vic to have died in the opening to VC, then it was Vic. If you wish it to be Pete, so be it. The world is not going to end, get over it.

Let's just assume that is was Vic who was killed in VC. Has anyone ever thought that maybe he was putting on the accent? He was selling cocaine.

Firstly, f*ck the moron who brought this old topic up.
Secondly, I will repeat myself and say:
-The name of Victor was known before VC came out. Then why is he not named "Victor" in the files?

Yeah true, there is no real evidence to the best of my knowledge. I guess it's how the player feels the story should go, for me it's vic. For a guy that has such great morals, he certainly went above and beyond the law with vcs

It's Vic that dies in the intro.

It's implied on the official website for Vice City, which hasn't been updated in god knows how long.

They only mention 2 members of the Vance crime family on the list of suspects, and Ken Rosenburg even says that the coke deal was set up with people not connected to the Vice City underworld. Vic and Lance laid low for 2 years after the events of VCS, and it's very likely they severed ties with everything to do with Vice City since their criminal empire is basically dead by 1986.

Remember how Lance always complaied that his brother always treated him like a kid! That has to be the key to this question!

I think it was Pete that was killed. At the start of Vice City the unnamed brother that was killed didnít look anything like Vic and has a Latin accent. I know there was a space of two years between VC and VCS but I think the differences are just to large. But thatís only my opinion.

Ok, so ive changed my mind. I finished vcs last night and started vc right after. It doesnt look that much like vic, But the character seems very sickly and tired, the accent seems fake. I now fully believe it's pete, Kind of mess's things up

Damn this is some funny stuff. Reading a bunch of people arguing over something that can't be verified either way. Human nature states a mystery must be solved and you all prove it. BUT, big but here, all this speculation is useless unless R* comes clean. Was is Pete or Vic? Ahh, who really gives a S**T. At least we get to kill that pile of trash Lance in VC. VCS was a great story despite all your utter stupidity and bickering. So keep at it, makes for some great reading. smile.gif

That makes no sense. Lance's brother (whoever it was) was not sick or tired in VC, because R* would have no reason to make it so. There was no plan for VCS at the time.

IMO i think the reason R* made up this third brother is for us to believe that it was Pete who died at the start of VC and to stop us making loads of threads like this. But i dunno maybe it is Vic.

exactly. and by vice city vic has slowly come to accept that drugs are a part of his life and wanted to see what they are like.

no I mean like

He got into that business of setting up empires to get rich to help his brother... well he got rich at the end of VCS so I'm pretty sure Vic took care of Pete and probably let him move to VC (I dunno where they lived before vic vance moved to vice city, but it might have been that carribean country i forgot the name of it... but if so, Pete stayed there even after his brothers moved to VC so that's why he has a carribean accent)... and Pete might have also wanted to get into the drug game too but you know that's just my inference.

you do make a good point, but im sure its vic, i dont want it to be vic, but it is. i didnt want to believe lance died either, but he dd. what the f*ck can you do about it. unless of course they both woke up much later and had severe memory loss, honestly i hope thats what happened.

I doubt it since R* wouldn't have one of their protagonists die.

Well, remember how Vic says that his dad is from the Dominican Republic, and his parents split up early in his youth? Well, while Lance and Vic were living with Aunt Enid, Pete could have been living with his father in the DR. I say it's Pete, because the Vance brother that dies at the beggining of Vice City has a Hispanic accent. And don't forget, but the Dominican Republic is a Hispanic country.

Also, at the end of Vice City Stories, Vic says that he wants to get out of the drug business, and the only reason he took down Martinez, etc. is because of his hatred for them.

My verdict? It was Pete.
