I chose Revenge everytime as I find "Deal" to be very out of character for Niko.

I disagree.

What has revenge gotten Niko? Nothing. Killing Vlad only made Roman's problems infinitely worse, as he is so keen to remind him. Killing Darko did not make, or would not have made, the emptiness inside him go away. Niko is sorry for the trouble he has caused with these acts. If he just puts aside his impulses this time, he believes, maybe everything will turn out all right and everyone will be happy, like they were before he showed up. Roman will be wealthy and happily married. Pegorino will be content and stable. Dimitri will have incentive to leave Niko and his loved ones alone. If Kate breaks up with him, that's a small price to pay compared to security and comfort. So he'll take Roman's advice, and be a loyal employee, even if he has reservations.

In another story, the deal would have been the better choice to make, because Niko listens to his companions, puts aside his grudges, leaves the cycle of revenge, and did not end up a loose cannon like Faustin, who had to be put down because he refused to compromise.

But Niko finds out that he isn't in that story. And that's partly why the Deal ending is as poignant as it is; the one time Niko really tried not to f*ck everything up for himself and others, he f*cked up worse than he would've thought possible. The world won't let him win.

Welcome to America.

I chose Revenge on my first save, but I feel the consequences of Deal were more fitting.

I kind of disagree it was out of character for Niko. If the situation was real I believe he would've taken Roman's word over Kate's. Although he didn't trust Dimitri I think Niko would've put aside those bitter feelings to give Roman a better life after everything he put him through.

I just felt Deal captured the whole false "American Dream" philosophy the best even if Revenge was the no brainer decision.

This. Roman partially represented the American Dream, and when he died, all of Niko's hopes for a better future in this country and preconceptions vanished along with him, and he saw it for what it was. So many quotes in the game become relevant in hindsight.

"I went into a situation full of optimism…full of naivete…"

"This American greed takes everyone. It's like a disease!"

"Welcome to America; just like the Old Country."

Even though it was incredibly sad I chose to kill Kate. In the PC version she calls you after a week then sends an email breaking up with you. It's still sad for a number of reasons though, but I had to keep Roman alive because, well, he's Niko's cousin.
