I was wondering what people think about the homeless characters in GTA4 compared to the earlier games? I remember in San Andreas and GTA3 there was usually just the one or two homeless characters wandering around- how many different homeless pople have you come across in Liberty City?

I think they're hilarious. Its so fun having them around. You can beat on 'em. You can give them money if they're playing some sweet tunes for you. You can spare them some change and then fight some random guy so that the hobo helps you. Ah, the possibilities. Its just more realistic having them around. And at least they have a bigger "role" in Liberty City than in previous games.

Thanks- when you say hundreds- is it the same character you've found- like the lanky scruffy guy from San Andreas, or different characters. I only just got the game and I'm kind of interested.[COLOR=red]

I LOVE the homo- Err, hobos in LC! I always laugh when I'm standing in traffic and I get hit by a car and you get up, look around and a hobo (wearing the classic pot on his head like a hat) screams "THE ALIENS ARE INVADING!", and sprints as fast as he can. And he's the only one who gets freaked out, while everybody watches as he legs it as fast as he can. They have some serious mental issues to work out.

And yes, they are everywhere. But they are so warm and cuddly, don't you think? You just want to wrap your arms around their shoulders... and move your hands up a tad... and squeeezze...

Sometimes, if you hit them, they shout: "I don't have any bananas!".

If I could blow up homes in this game, there would be a LOT more homeless people...

I have more than 50 dead hobos to thank for helping me complete the "Finish Him" achievement. Hope you guys meet your mommies up there.

I love the excuses for begging for money:

"My mommy's dead and I need to bury her" (sometimes followed by, Is that you with that man mommy?)

"I'm collecting for the anti-alien crusade."

"I need money not food!"

The guy with the saxophone is useful, as he can at least restore your lifeline when you give him his money.

I like the man with a pot on his head.
I've seen him often in the homless hangout in the subway tunnel.
