Following the success of the 500 things we learnt in Vice City topic and I decided make the same one for GTA:III. Because we learned something from GTA:III too, long before GTA Vice City was out.

Rules:
  • Don't post more than 10 facts at a time.
  • No off-topic posts.
  • You should number the facts. If you don't number the facts, things will get confused.
  • All facts must be related to an original GTA:III (patch 1.1 counts).
  • This topic is for fun, not for others to get mad.
  • If one fact is posted, foolowed by another posted fact which is the same, it won't count towards the total amount of facts.
    e.g. Parking lots are full of vehicles. Vehicles are always parked in the parking lots.
Let's get started!
  1. Nothing drives down real estate prices like a good old-fashioned gang war
  2. Flying the Dodo can be fancy
  3. ...And it as well can be annoying as sh*t!
  4. You can see where the game world ends
  5. The sun rises from below the surface
  6. Liberty City waters are fine for dumping bodies
  7. Bitch'N'Dog Food Factory meals are made of the bank manager, the thieves and the owner's wife
  8. Asuka's massager is not a massager!
  9. Someone's mother is someone's sister
  10. Horace Walsh has no love for Donald Love

11. Donald Love likes to leave without saying goodbye
12. Claude is the sexiest thing EVER, according to a certain member here
13. You'll literally get blown away visiting Saint Mark's after "Sayonara Salvatore" without a tank or bulletproof Patriot
14. Shoreside Vale was pretty hard to navigate at first
15. It sucks when you find a Mr. Whoopee after wasting so much time searching for it, only to be arrested almost immediately after pulling the driver out
16. Claude never has anything to say
17. Claude runs pretty weird
18. Catalina is a bitch
19. Full-body casts can take quite a beating, and a few explosions, too
20. 8-Ball knows a place at the edge of the Red Light District where you can lay low, but his hands are all messed up, so you better drive, brother

32. Liberty City medics can heal you no matter what injuries/wound you receive
33. Shotguns can blow up vehicles from 2 shots!
34. Maria is a junkie and a blabbermouth! She even told a gossip to Salvatore about her dating Claude, so Salvatore would want to kill him later on.
35. When Asuka beats up Miguel with her pole, the sound is the same as if she would be holding a whip.

40. One man can wipe out an entire gang practically by himself (Claude wiped out the Purple Nines without any help from anybody (except for money rewards from D-Ice)
41. Luigi Goterelli, Joey Leone, Toni Cipriani, 8-Ball, Maria Latore and Salvatore Leone are Badfellas
42. M16 is a Weapon of Mass Destruction. Literally.
43. Some areas can be entered when driving only a specific vehicle
44. It is unknown where are the cars exported to after you leave them in the garage and the door closes...
45. And it's impossible to guess where are the vehicles imported from as soon as you have taken your order and exited the garage with the door closing after you.
46. Rockstar logos can be seen on pretty much everything in Liberty City.
47. In the TW@ Internet Cafe you can see a GTA2 game being played on one of the computers... which means that Rockstar is advertising its own merchandise, released before.
48. Donald Love teaches you the way of the world.
49. There is a lot of beta stuff remaining both in the game and Rockstar's promotional sites.

I don't nderstand what's wrong with this. She can post whatever she wants, as long as it is what she learned from playing GTA:III. And I guess she learned that CLaude is hot after playing the game, not before!

A bit incorrect. He doesn't laugh his ass off, it's just his evil laugh he cries out before he charges in, and all the SWAT guys laugh this way even if Claude is standing in their line of sight, even 3 steps from them. It's just a sound which makes clear that the SWAT arrived.

Anyway, on the topic.

71. Toni is a real amnesiac girl: she says she's never been on fire, but in VC she clearly says that she was dancing with a lighter and her hair went up in flames.
72. Andee wonders whether wheels of steel are made of steel
73. Lazlow has a really hard time
74. Toni's name isn't Toni (according to his call on Chatterbox)

Wow, Only 21 more to go.

I never said this laugh didn't! I just said that SWAT laugh even when Claude is directly in front of them. SWAT have the same laughs in Vice City and Liberty City Stories, by the way. It's just a part of the SWAT!

On topic,
82. Joey Leone, Donald Love and Oriental Gentleman are the only characters who can change clothes in game.
83. It is interesting how things work out in the game: In the beginning, the Colombians attacked the convoy to kidnap the Oriental Gentleman, setting Claude free. In "Liberator", Claude breaks the Oriental Gentleman out of the Colombians compound, as if returning the favor.
84. Love Media owns 900 radio stations, 300 TV stations, 4 networks, 3 satellites, 10 senators, everything from films to dog food, from radio to pop music, as well as a satellite in China
85. And it is the largest US-run media conglomerate that emerged over past 5 years
86. Donald Love has the most developed character model in the game.
87. The pond and the cabins on the rooftop of Donald Love's building are unsolid
88. You can see through walls into Blue Hell

Check your numbers. You automatically jumped from 49 to 53 a while back. Also, MAN IN THE DARK's deep meaning posts don't make any sense so why do you count them towards the things we learned in GTA III?

Don't know, lads. The topic has been f*cked up. Literally. MAN IN THE DARK, AH64Hunter, me - we all were f*cking up this topic a bit...

But really, do we know 100 things we learned now??? I think yes!

So, it's done! Enjoy the reward: 100 things (99 in fact) about GTA:III that we've learned while playing it, and ...
