I dont realy consider a reference "an unusual change in program behavior" thus the only real easter egg is what you said above, the statue heart...

Has anyone ever thought that the Easter Eggs in GTA IV could be extremly subtle?

For example...there might be Easter Eggs that can only be seen durring a certain time in the day. I wouldn't doubt if Easter Eggs were hidden with the combination of lighting and the position your observing from.

Remember...the shading moves according to the suns position.

I also wonder if they programed Easter Eggs after a certain amount of time passage in the game. Say 3 years go by, and stuff starts popping up in certain places...?

Naa too much coding it cost R* over 150m to make ad lest they get a 1b profit lucky bastards.
Edit: Oh and the Claude and Tommy graffiti is not only available in Roman's apartment it's scattered throughout Liberty City.

May be not, in GTA SA, there was a cabin which was a Moai Statue only from distance due to the low level of details.
Moai statues are the big faces on Easter Island for those who didn't know wink.gif

99% of things listed in this thread, they are either references to past games, crude jokes like the 69 references plainly out in the open, or parodies in a game that itself is intended to be a parody.

There is one easter egg in this game, it is the heart in the statue, it is something put into the game the developers figured would not be found by anyone except the most dedicated fans.

So lets shorten and close this thread.

First page.

List of easter eggs:
Heart in Statue of Happiness

Thread closed until more actual easter eggs are found.

Who gave you the power to close a topic? Are you a mod?

As Doctor Emmett L. Brown said, easter eggs are references to past GTA games.

Ok lets clarify this. suicidal.gif

{BEGIN RANT}

A reference is NOT an Easter Egg. There are only a handful of actual Eggs in the game (thus far). Beating Heart is the only true confirmed. The Happiness shirt....meh..maybe. The purple dildo's....possibly. A bunch of pictures of past GTA people or name scribbles..nah. Thats called an Homage or paying respect to past characters. NOT an Easter Egg!

As far as references go....thats all they are...nothing more...nothing less.

Everything else is either a R* creation, a spoof or a knock-off of a real world brand. NOT and easter egg.

Should this thread be locked...NO

Should this thread be weeded through for all the BS and duplicate posts.. HELL YEA!!

But...judging from the fact that this thread is still going strong....the mods dont seem to mind. So let 'em all whine about this and that. They're just mad 'cause we found the stuff first and their threads keep getting locked.

{END RANT}

Wow, Saturnneo, you basically came around after 9 pages huh? I was the one arguing this point with YOU as you were bashing someone for only being a member a month. Remember??? Do ya?

YOUR Post Page 21 http://www.gtaforums...c=344077&st=400

Wow, this coming from a person who's only been a member for a month. I know it's just your opinion, but the fact is NOONE GIVE A RAT F*CK about your opinion! Shut up and go back to the Hanna Montana boards.


Real nice confused.gif

MY post
QUOTE
Wrong. Most of the posts here are NOT easter eggs AT ALL. Jokes Rockstar put into the game such as TV shows, store/brand names do not constitute eggs. Just because YOU finally noticed them does not mean they are hidden. The topic is SECRETS & EASTER EGGS. Obvious jokes are just that, jokes.

"Was watching Be Rich $ on TV, and one of the celebrities has a mansion in Los Santos "

"I was driving my car around and I was waiting at a light, then some guy came and hit me and Niko shouted "Stupid Crapstar!""

"Mysterious serial killer on the lose (Grizzly bear)."

"Dunno if its been found yet but near the LJ's pool cafe there is a billboard that advertises 'Squid Row' fish food, a Saints Row mock up"

"What if the Edison is a homage to Mr. edison carter?
The Schneider could also reference John Schneider (Bo) from the Dukes of Hazzard."

"ZOMG I ACTUALLY FOUND ONE
I dont know if you guys found it or nott i really hope you didnt! but in your apartment in south bohan i think it is, when you first walk in the door theres a few CD's on the counter, beside a radio, and theres on that says OG LOC on it and has a picture of him, from san andreas blush.gif"

The Heart Of the City thing is an Egg. Graffiti that you see within the first 15 minutes of playing(and is everywhere) is NOT.
Congrats on getting Rockstar's humor. Have a cookie  or whatever you kids are shooting for...


And then your once again, your intelligent display of maturity and rational thought...
QUOTE
The turds still drop from your mouth and yet you still make no point! The ones you higlighted are retarded. The point is, you are reading it and posting here all the same! Infact you've probably printed them all out and are gingerly visiting each spot as we speak. 


Funny thing is, one of those "retarded" quotes are YOURS, lol.

Seriously man, you FINALLY realized what I and others were trying to tell you while you were making yourself look like a total ass. And now its YOUR argument, hahahahaha, You sir, are a tool. Looks like you won over the kids here though, hah. King Asshat! Congrats!!!

This isn't really an easter egg, i just want to point something out and don't want to make a new topic about it.

I'm sure you remember Darius Fontaine from San Andreas, the inventor of Inversion Therapy (Made Lazlow have sex with his grandma etc). Well, on PLR, the "psychic" host of The Seance's name is Beatrix Fontaine - coincedence? Probably, but i think not lol. Con artists quite possibly run in their family tounge.gif

*ahem* there is atleast otwo other easter eggs to the ones you mention the stroller beside the burnt car,and the alien in the lake (shape of the lake) biggrin.gif

EDIT:didn't bother to read all eleven pages and it seems somone found the stroller but heres a possible explanation:the parents came down killed the kid put him/her in the car set the car alight then left.Perhaps this was a cover by rockstar that all the children are now afraid to leave their houses?(we all know the real reason is the kid killing factor)

what insult?
i was just saying that its a pretty weak relationship between silverback and nickleback.


also if you go into most safe houses (during multiplayer) or it might be only playboy x's then you can see the TV just about to start multiplayer on GTA IV.
Might of been posted before.

Meadow Park bares a strong resemblance to Belleville Park on GTA III. I was looking at the maps and they look pretty much identical.

Two past GTA references that should be included are:

ZebraBar: Can be found at any Newspaper stand around Liberty City. Look among the candy section. (From GTA:SA)

and

Redwood Cigarettes: Again at any Newspaper stand around the city. (And also from GTA:SA)

For "Sexual References":

There is a sex shop in Hove Beach that you visit in a mission for Faustin. It is open all the time, and inside are numerous pornographic magazines with hilarious coverpages, a shelf full of dildos, and two TVs playing an animated porno movie.

Saturnneo you are a total douche. You tried telling me to go to
Hannah Montanah forums for pointing out that everything so far
pointed out wasnt an easter egg, with the exception of the beating
Heart, and then you say the same thing...
The reason that me and Lysergio keep coming back to this topic
is because we hope that maybe someday someone will actually find
another real Easter Egg. It isnt to see what kind of dumbass thing
you will say next.

Two Brands :

user posted image
Derriere is a brand that sells ornaments for thongs as we can judge by the Ad in Star Junction. Apart from the logo which is clearly an ass, "Derriere" means "Bottom" in French. Just wanted to share that

user posted image
Many of the cars' brands are based on sexual shapes, but the only one with a reference is Pegassi, which is a fetched version of "Goatse". If you know Gaotse, you'll see what I mean, for the others, do a Google search, pic can't be posted here ^^

It is a legit reference.

if you go back to the roof in mission were you had to shoot the guy threw the window after calling his phone to get a beter view of him. if you go back there and land on the fire escape and look threw the window you can see a crowbar just like the one in halflife and i think there was one in SA. so it could be a refrence to halflife again.
