Alright, so earlier today, I was bored and decided to open up GTA IV's executable with a hex editor to see what I could find. Maybe something hinting at the beta. I don't know. Anyway, what I found was pretty shocking. I found a list of racial slurs including the N word and other swears. I'll drop a link to the picture below.

This is the list of swear words for those of you who don't feel like clicking the link.

 

Spoiler

 

What do you guys think of this? I'm curious why these files were left over. I'm not trying to offend anyone, but I figured I'd share this weird discovery.

 

If you don't believe me, open up GTAIV.exe with a hex editor and search for one of the slurs listed above. I'm not joking.

If this is actually real, then it looks (considering each slur is listed in a number of ways) like a list of words to check against.  Maybe if a multiplayer name matched the list, it wasn't allowed, or maybe it was going to be used to censor texts between players, but texts were dropped?

That is possible. I wouldn't be surprising if it was a filter system that was dropped as whole.

Let's say I am black, should I be offended? What if I'm white (which I am), should I be interested why this is in the game?

You can hear the word 'nigga' over 100 times in the first three hours in GTA V, what is so special about that?

Reminds me of those parents who buy their kids video games and then complain about how violent it is.

As stated earlier, it looks like some type of filter list. Don't know what it would be used for, though. I don't think you can type messages on multiplayer, besides PM'ing through Xbox Live or PSN. But those two have their own filter systems.

LOL, this is actually true, just checked it for myself.

It's not racist if you make fun of every race equally! Is it?

Looks like an official Baskin-Robins of prejudice there!

Haahhaa

 

I literally didn't even know that word existed - or even was a slur - until I saw that scene.

You can type to each other on PC only. I haven't played for a while, but I'm pretty sure you could write whatever you wanted. No filter.

Doesn't Gerry say "Working for guineas, workings for ni**ers" in the cutscene for "Actions Speak Louder than Words"?

Woah R* went pretty overboard with that! Then again they say Nigga like 50 thousand times in SA and V.
