|Hi friends, when I created the topic "Raymond "Ray" Boccino, Let's discuss him" in GTA IV Forum http://www.gtaforums...pic=459057&st=0 a lot of people said I would hate Ray Boccino because he was very bad in The Lost And Damned. Well, when I played GTA IV, all I knew is that Jonathan "Johnny" Klebitz stole Ray's money, after the diamond fiascoObviously, because of it I didn't like Johnny in GTA IV, but I was thinking that maybe, when I play The Lost And Damned, I would see a good reason for Johnny do that. For example, the mission "Roman's Holiday" showed us the reason why Johnny kidnapped Roman Bellic. It was because Ashley Butler, his ex-"old lady", was owing money from the russians. So it was a "good reason".But when I play "Diamonds In The Rough", suddenly!!! Johnny says:Who knows, maybe down the line, there'll be an|
opportunity to rip off the smug guido who gave us the job in the first
place. Come on! Brothers for life, Lost forever.I was like.........WHAT???? THAT'S THE REASON?? Ok.... IT ISN'T EVEN A REASON!!! It's completely GREED!!!! C'mon, from GTA IV, we know Ray would give to The Lost half of the money, 1 MILLION DOLLARS!!! 1 million dollars isn't enough for Johnny? It's A LOT OF MONEY, IT WAS THE HALF!! HALF FOR THE LOST!!! Ray Boccino would get the other half, but wait........he would share his half with Niko and another of his "guys", and the Pegorino Family........so if we think well, THE LOST WOULD WIN MORE THAN RAY!! THEY ALREADY HAD ADVANTAGE!! C'MON!!! JOHNNY IS GREEDY AND BACKSTABBING!!! WHY STEAL RAY????? So I was thinking more.... Maybe Johnny did that because he was JEALOUS of Ashley Butler!! Ashley was having an affair with Ray, but heeeeey, what's the problem? Johnny wasn't even dating Ashley anymore, and Ray seemed to be friendly and helpful with Ashley, as we can see in the GTA IV mission "Taking In The Trash". Johnny acts like a child, or better, almost everyone of The Lost acts like a child!! Like Ray said "You're all adults. Sort of." They are around 30 years old, and they act like teenagers! People like Johnny, Brian (the worst), Billy.......... I didn't understand what Ray did wrong!!!! It wasn't him who betrayed, who betrayed was THE LOST!!Now put yourself at Ray's place. What you would do? You would think "poor of this bikers,I will let them with my money, I don't care if they stole me, let them with my 2 million dollars!!C'MON!!!! How many times Ray said to Johnny to not get clever!!!!! Obviously that he would want the money back!!!! Jim Fitzgerard disappointed me very much. I thought he was, together with Angus, one of the only intelligent members of The Lost, but after "Collector's Item", greed took over him. The Jim I met, would say "Johnny, it isn't a good idea, half of the money is great, to steal the whole money will only give problems" but nooooo he laughs and catch all the money! Angus, my favorite member of The Lost, said in the end of the game: You know how it happens. It's that f*cked up part of people which means
good is never good enough. I mean it wasn't enough that we had to be
drug dealers, we also had to be outlaws, to be maniacs, to be psychos,
and to be greedy.
Terry That combination of greed and f*cked up stupidity, that works well. If
you're in the government. Not so good if you're a f*ckin' crook.. I completely agree. It wasn't Ray's fault. It was THEIR fault.
I loved Ray in The Lost And Damned!! He was very funny in The Lost and Damned, more than in GTA IV, don't you think? Oh, and I also loved his new outfit Fingerless gloves, maybe Ray likes to drive a bike sometimes ?
Now please answer my question: WHAT RAY DID WRONG ?
