*reads all of these and instantly regrets selling my copy 6 months ago* haha. GTA IV had a feel that 5 doesnt really have.. I think you can feel connnected to Niko as a character more than any of the 3 in GTA V. Niko was the type of character I wouldn't ever mind playing as again. Sadly looks like R* is going to leave us in mystery about what happened to our friend Mr. Bellic..

Me too. If Trevor would kill Niko, I would NEVER touch a GTA after IV.

This has probably been mentioned already, but on the higher wanted levels (5 and 6 stars) police snipers with PSG-1s rifles will spawn on rooftops in Algonquin. They've been slowing down my quest for 100% by sniping my brains out whilst i'm trying to eradicate the pigeon menace that plagues LC.

Aaah, so now I know exactly where were those shots coming from. I always thought these were from police choppers or an automated shot.

Time changed traffic, press etc... More people go to graveyard at night, hobos dominate park at night, runners at day; traffic is very thin at night, usually costlier cars at night

When you see the saxophone player on the subway platforms playing, you can tip him $10.

Those b/w surveillance camera feeds you see when you're riding the train really do look like that too.

I once saw bros in aerobic exercise outfits doing squats and stretches in the graveyard after the McReary funeral mission and a group of 4 dudes sipping drinks on a stoop by Packie's house.

If you enter your phone camera while on a Subway train, you can see inside the train more clearly. If you then turn the camera 180 you can see inside Nikos Head. This works also with the thing that goes between Algonquin to Colony island. (I cant remember the what it's called.)

This is old, but it's one of my favorite things in this game. Shoot your gun in a car while hanging out with a girl. She will dump you, and the car's engine won't take any damage anymore. It will still take body damage, but it won't blow up.  The effect persists if you save, but it will be removed if you enter any scripted type scene involving the car, such as hanging out with a friend.  

 

Trying to carbomb an invincible car causes it to instantly vanish.

Sometimes you will hear a pedestrian refer to how the city has gone downhill "since the attacks." This quote isn't verbatim, but I've heard it a few times in Bohan.

-There are signs that the Well Stacked Pizza Co. from Grand Theft Auto: Vice City and Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas was originally meant to reappear in the game:

 

  • Outside the store "Pizza This", the employees are still seen sporting the logo and some with "Well Stacked Pizza Co." on the back of their shirts.
  • When blocking the route of certain taxis, the driver will sometimes shout lines such as "Hurry up, I need to get to Well Stacked!" and on occasion "My Pizza Stack's gettin cold, move it!"
  • Pedestrian-to-pedestrian dialog will occasionally involve whether Pizza Stack or Burger Shot is better.

-Internal files call the Beechwood City area of Broker "Grayfords", suggesting that Grayfords was Beechwood City's original name.

 

-There are references within the game's data files to a nightstick weapon, but no such weapon is available in the final game.

So after 6 years and countless hours playing IV I finally saw the infamous mail man.

I was on my way to the Homebrew Cafe and there he was near the mail box out the front. It felt like seeing a unicorn lol.

It is possible to complete the story missions and reach the end credits without completing all of Brucie's missions: the last mission from Brucie that is mandatory is the first part of "Out of the Closet", where Roman Bellic is present during the opening cutscene.

After setting the rendez-vous on the internet website, simply do not head over the dinner to meet your target for the duration of the rest of the game. Although note that you will be constantly reminded by text messages to meet your target.

Alternatively the player can complete the mission entirely but ignore the next and final of Brucie's missions "No.1". The advantage to skipping this mission is that Brucie as a result will never offer to become one of Niko's hangout buddies, which may be advantageous to some player who dislike the friendship gameplay feature.

 

By making certain other choices in the game, it's possible to only have Packie and Jacob, two out of five friends to hang out with.

- there are two russian gangs. russian mob and russian gang. they also attack each other.

- a russian engineer spawns on plane wings and on top of the power plant's tower. he also fixs telephone poles and electric boxes. most hardworking ped in iv. :beerhat:

Niko can take things from people's hand, without making them drop to the floor. Just gently approach some ped, and press lb/l1 when close to them. He will just take it from their hands and the ped will walk away. Some of them will get spooked, some will engage in a brawl... everyone has a different reaction to it.

OFF TOPIC:Ive been having a lot of fun using this feature, too bad it is not included in V.

I find out today that you dont actually snatch it from peoples hand. looking closely, they "drop" the object, and before it hits the ground, Niko picks it up. The reactions are different, just like i told before.. the only difference is in the animation, where Niko dont exactly took it out of NPC's hands. Sorry for tha misleading information, but it is a nice addition though, worth the share.

After you kill Faustin, if you go to Hove Beach and start trouble with a Russian gangster and he pulls out a gun and shoots at you, sometimes other Russian gangsters will be present and start shooting at each other in a gang war. There are two different and rival Russian Mobs in that area it seems.
