"Hey Rockstar! I've been a huge fan of Vice City... and was wondering; is that Victor Vance who is gunned down in the intro of Vice City? All sources seem to say "yes", but no official word has been given on that." - received via Mouthoff

Yup... that's Vic. After having been dragged back into the Vice City criminal underworld by his brother Lance following the events of Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories, Vic Vance dies in the ambush that occurs in the opening scene of Grand Theft Auto: Vice City.

This confirmation comes from the company that OWNS the story of the game. As such, whatever is believed to be true from the customer such as yourself (or even individuals who programmed the game in the first place) makes no difference. If it had appeared to be an 8 ft. tall Asian with bad acne scars and an extra thumb, it still would have been Vic.

That's how a whiny little brat in the Star Wars prequels gets to be Darth Vader.

Ok, then why did Lance say "This is for my brother!" when killing Diaz, if the one who had Vic murdered was Sonny?

Could've been any number of ways for Sonny (or someone working for him) to convince Lance that Diaz was responsible for his brother's death. There's certainly a motive for it. Suppose Sonny knew Diaz was helping Tommy make something of himself in Vice City? Breaking up the partnership between the three of them (prior to what you find out right before that last mission) would be a way of knocking Tommy back down to being a "nobody" who has to rely on his first boss/connection and no other.

I'm not saying the OP is right. But I definitely favor his story over the more popular one (where a non-Cuban sounding black man turns into an apparently full-blooded Cuban after a rather short stay in Vice City, Florida).

Edited to add:

So Rockstar has confirmed it's Vic. Tsk tsk. I still say they should've thought about the OP's idea first.

Maybe Victor somehow got addicted to meth and he looks old Rockstar just didn't tell us. I bet it's not it but's possible.

That's just it, Rockstar couldn't possibly come up with an explanation as to why Vic doesn't look or sound anything like himself after such a short stay in Florida. Come to think of it, even the personalities don't match. The guy who gets killed in the beginning of VC is an annoying chucklehead whom it doesn't take much to suspect of being evil. Vic Vance in VCS is 100% the opposite. A responsibility-minded overly serious do-gooder.

I suppose it could be drugs that account for this difference as well, but you'd think meth or cocaine would make him all the more cautious (i.e., paranoid) and uptight. And the accent is still a mystery...

Ken Rosenberg said the truth : Okay, so. They're brothers, okay. One operates the uh, business, and the other one does the flying. (from the intro smile.gif )

Rockstar has already confirmed it was Vic. But I think it was a poor call on their part because of all the inconsistencies. They would've done better to say it was Pete who died in that scene. Then, everything would make perfect sense, with or without the OP's theory concerning the meat hook dude back in Liberty City.

I remember this topic like yesterday, from 4-5 years ago. The guy who made it got banned later on and had the EXACT same story. Don't remember his name, it was chngdman or something like that.
