I got the idea from a thread on GTAGaming Forums: http://www.gtagaming...ad.php?t=105353

I'll start with some

Any yes, that list REALLY DID get to 1,000


What I've learned:
1. Cops seem to have peripheral vision

2. If you knock somebody's phone out of their hand, they won't worry about picking it up

3. People eating at Fast Food restaurants are too busy to notice Niko driving through it

4. If you tell a taxi driver to hurry, they will drive worse than an angry old lady on Crystal
Meth

5. It is illegal to jump on a police car

6. Bullet Wounds can be healed by drinking Sprunk

7. Jumping on the stage at a strip club is the biggest offense in LC

8. Be careful not to get a car wash in a rowdy neighborhood, as they ALWAYS open your doors!

9. Bus shelters are 100% indestructible, but if you get lucky, the bottom glass may shatter.

10. All of the cab in Liberty City drivers look like Billy Mays

11.Cab drivers, when hit, ALWAYS scream "What is this sh*t? MY CAR!"

12. If Niko got a penny every time somebody on the street called him a "Stupid Malaka", he'd be the richest man in Liberty City.

13. There must be a very quick artist in Middle Park East on Albany Avenue next to the hot dog stand, because every time I hit the art easel with pictures of the Statue of Happiness, it magically reappears a minute later.

14. I don't know what the Beat102.7's callers are talking about, the DJ shouts out to Broker almost once every hour.

15. Beat 102.7's DJ also seems to have some pet cats in Broker that he shouts out to.

15. If the lights on top of an LCPD Police Car are damaged, the sirens don't work, either.

16. Even if you pay the tolls, you get a wanted level if you drive through the gates.


LET'S KEEP IT GOING!

18: The cops don't come after you for killing a ped in a car accident, but if you jump on their cars or smash through the barrier at the station, they'll shoot you/try to arrest you even if you don't kill anyone confused.gif

19. Niko is a magician, who can hide an array of weapons inside of any clothing that he is wearing

20. You can drive through most things, but do not f*ck with bus stops

21. The sunrise in LC is beautiful biggrin.gif

22. The cops in LC are suicidal psychopaths who will jump off anything, run through anything and shoot anyone to kill you, and even when your dead, riddle your body with bullets

For some reason I'm getting the idea that the person who made this topic doesn't like GTA IV too much.. I noticed that every point is against the game, so... I'd say another fanboy.

Not at all, GTAIV is my favorite GTA! Not a fanboy at all.

If I was, my comment would be like "yoooo gta4 sucksssss n000000000bz!!!" & then I'd battle over which console is better. hmm..

23. Almost everytime I get into a blista compact, "Superstar" by Group Home starts playing on the radio. No other song, no other station. It's always that same damn song and it always starts from the very beggining as soon as I start up the car.

24. After playing through the story 3 times, and over 200 hours of playing time, I am STILL discovering new things in this city.

25. The pedestrians in GTA IV are very diverse and different from each other, but repeat the same phrases and conversations all too often.

Use some fkn logic before your next pethetic comeback.

No I wasn't making fun of GTA IV read what I said. I was making a reference to the rag doll effects that's quite funny. By times you get nudged by a car, stumble around for a long period of time, then fall and swear at the driver. I think it's hilarious!

28. you are the only person who can aim for sh*t.

29. balkans/serbs don't like showing their arms.

30. no-one cleans the binoculars on the ESB.

31.- Nobody ever wears seat belts in GTA, so if you drive a big truck really fast there will be drivers ejected all over the place!

32. Paramedics can't drive for Shist!

33. Street cops prefer to jack cars on their side of the road rather than walk across and get in another cop car.

34. Helicopters appear on every pad...but only after you are flying.

35. Running around Times Square with an RPG has no consequences.

Jackasses, "what I've learned from _____" threads are playful, sarcastic jabs at the game. Noone is actually bashing the game except for that guy above me. You're the fanboys because you're whining like little girls over nothing.

39-Bowlers are so focused on their game that they don't give a crap if a crazy guy walks into the building and murders the chick working the Burger Shot stand. They'll just keep bowling.

40. In a police chase the cops tend to commit more crimes than yourself, wreckless driving/hit & run peds/criminal damage etc...

41. cars driven by you never run out of fuel.

42. people don't actually do anything to fill up their cars except just drive through.

43. cops don't like you helping them by stopping the criminal they are chasing.

44. guns aren't illegal unless you use them.

45. the guy in perseus is persian, not gay.

46. the insides of buildings automatically dissappear after you have been inside them.

47. the empire state building has a mysterious wall which you can fly through.

48. fat cops are the most lethal cops.

Not true. If you stop in good time quite far from the barrier it will open and you can drive through without a wanted level.

However,
49. Paramedics are simply untrained civilians who look at dead people, get in their ambulance and drive off without doing anything.
50. Cellphones are single-use only. After the conversation they are thrown on the ground.
51. If a firefighter is called to a scene of total carnage with cars and bodies on fire, he assumes it's a prank call and drives off
52. The interiors of hotels and hospitals are totally indestructible

57.I learnt never to borrow the game to a friend cause it might get f*cked up. My friend borrowed GTA IV from me, I guess I had no problem with that. Had I known my game would become unplayable and scratched all around, I'd never have done that of course. All I get from him is 'try cleaning it'. I mean, if you're gonna f*ck up my game, at least be f*cking honest about it.

I meant if you smash the gates down, not drive through it, because it always opens after you stop to pay for it

People, Bus Stops are not indestructible, I bailed off my motorbike and broke through the side glass of one. Yes, the back is indestructible, but the sides shatter.

This is a pretty good thread, keep 'em coming guys!

Actually I've heard new things all the time with conversations, one time I even saw 2 spanish looking people and heard them talking in a different language. That was near a police station, or was it a hospital... I don't know, but it was either a police station or a hospital on the first island.
