What is the best safehouse in IV? I say the one you get after you kill Playboy X. It looks cool plus it has a pool table and an outdoor patio. Dwayne is a fool because he would rather live in the projects.

I liked the Playboy X one. The one in Alderney is good too. It's more like my apartment in real life.

Yeah I'd have to say PBX's too. I like it for the fact that not only do you get Claude's GTA III clothing, but it's another place to play pool if you don't want to go to the Homebrew Cafe. Of course you need to play with a friend though.

Well if we're encompassing everything, the Lost clubhouse.

Gambling, pool, arm wrestling, strippers, computer, television, all those wholesome activities in one place.

PlayBoy X's safehouse hands down the best. There's two ways to go out, nice view, nice TV, Claude's outfit, it dosn't have that empty and boring feeling of Franklin's 2nd house in V. I always save here, it's raining on my savefile so it's even more awesome watching the outside, rain is one of the best sceneries ever in IV, very fitting, I just love rain in real life too.

I felt it was very necessary for a powerful end to the story. You feel it both from Johnny's perspective but it's also frustrating from a player standpoint. 

Oh, and backup saves.

Playboy's pad without a doubt.

I still hate the fact that there's no safehouse in Broker/Dukes.

Going with the PBX house too. That's the one I'd like to live in.

Definitely Playboy's, it has the biggest TV, a pool table, a computer in the downstairs lobby (and the internet cafe wasn't that far anyway), and I always enjoyed going out to the deck and watching Niko bounce between the fire escape and the wall whenever I'd walk him off the ledge, sometimes he'd survive.

Like most people, I like Playboy X's penthouse the best.

And awesome music played out loud! My favourite one out of the 3 games as well.

 

2nd one is Niko and Roman's loft in Algonquin, has the Internet and big TV + I like the design. Playboy X' penthouse is nice too, but I prefer the loft.

Playboy X's was my favorite. It has the most stuff to do and looked awesome. I like how the Pool still works in EFLC but needs helicopter to get up there.

Luis' safehouse is pretty nice too but it has almost nothing to do in it.

Playboy's apartment. I love the balcony. The Lost Clubhouse was pretty good too since it had the CUB3D game upstairs

I prefered the Middle Park East safehouse over Playboy X's safehouse as Playboy's apartment felt to far out of the way for me.

I wonder if you can enter it in TBOGT from the patio since it is always open. I am going to try it when I get home.

Yes, you can. I tried that a long time ago, I don't remember if you can turn on the TV though.

You can get inside Johnny's safehouse too, just break the 2nd floor's front window, get on the balcony using a truck or an ambulance and jump inside.

I would have liked the Middle Park East safehouse over Playboy's in real life. But Playboy X's had more amenities.

I really wish the Majestic Hotel penthouse from the Late Checkout mission was a safehouse as well. That place is awesome.

It would have been funny if Niko came home while you there and was wondering who the hell is in his apartment.

I always loved the first one you get - Roman's apartment. It was really sh*tty and cramped but for me it fit in really well with the story of Niko and Roman being poor immigrants. It made it more realistic.

If we are talking about the trilogt I would rank them as follows;

 

1. Playboy X's

2. Middle Park East

3. Luis's Northwood Apartment

4. The Lost MC Clubhouse

5. Romans Apartment

6. Alderney City Apartment.

7. The Bohan Safehouse

8. Brians old house

 

Cheers.

1. Playboy X's - Best looking and fairly well placed

2. Middle Park East - Also good looking and in a nice area

3. Roman's Apartment - Just being that first safe house gives it nostalgia

4. The Lost MC Clubhouse - Lots of activities

5. Luis' Apartment - Boring with nothing to do, but nice layout

6. Bohan Apartment - Step down from the Hove Beach, but good to steal cash from the ATM

7. Brian's Old House - Step down from Lost clubhouse, but good for shootouts, very dirty

8. Alderney City Apartment - Step down from the Algonquin ones, didn't use very much

When someone uses it, wait for hem to finish then kill them. They'll drop about $100 each time as opposed to the $5-$20 normally

Playboy X's apartment (because of the sick outdoor patio)

 

Also the apartment on the upper east side of Algonquin (I think it's Roman's?)

For me it's Bohan sefehouse ;D
So climatic and gritty.

If I had to choose the best looking one it would be Playboy X's apartment.

Best looking safehouse...that's a close tussle between Playboy X's crib and the Algonquin apartment.

Roman's 'mansion' in Hove Beach is my favourite purely for nostalgic reasons. The first time Niko walks in...sees how crap it is...the cockroach ending up on the bottom of Roman's shoe... :D
