Besides the fact that he acts like a complete idiot in this game, I remember in the first cutscene introducing Vic when the protagonist said that Lance was "sick in a different way", implying that he may have a mental illness. Also in Vice City, Lance seems to have trust issues and betrayed Tommy for some obscure reason. I know I'm looking a bit too deep in this, but after replaying both VC and VCS and analyzing Lance's behavior, I feel that he has some sort of mental disorder. Or is it just his cocaine addiction? What do you think?

Funny. I always thought that the moment he appeared in VCS (which I played before VC). The cutscene in which Vic said that he was sick in a different way really had me thinking Lance had a possible mental illness. Once I focused on his behavior in VC, the phone calls in which he expressed his paranoia in had me believe as well that he had some possible disorder. I think it's just his cocaine addiction talking tho. You know what they say,

"cocaine is one helluva drug"

Nah. "sick in a different way" is Vic's way of politely saying that Lance keeps acting like a fool.

Lance is a cocaine fuelled mess in VCS, that and he always feels belittled by Vic. He does a lot of really stupid sh*t without thinking.

 

VC really makes him a sad character though. His brother gets killed in the ambush so he has to fend for his own. He tries to play it straight and work his plan through with Tommy to find what they both are after. Once again he reacts that way typical Lance would react and blows their cover which results in Tommy thinking he's just another Vice City idiot much like Vic always did. And turns on Tommy only because he thought there was no way in hell that Tommy would fool Sonny and tries to take that opportunity to rise.

The best is when he drops Cocaine out of the Maverick during "White Lies" and Vic has to collect it all.  Meanwhile you're in a sh*tty Vortex which is hard to control and reminds me of the RC Trucks in the RC Missions in LCS.  Why are they hard?  Due to sh*tty physics and top heavy RC Vehicles.  The Vortex in SA and VCS are no exception and have strange controls, which makes the mission hard.  All cuz Lance Vance the dipsh*t is a mental case...

Anyway, yes that class of vehicle is not the most responsive in the games. :)

In LCS all the RC Vehicles turn very very sharp too easily and then tip over, spin out, etc...

 

The Vortex/Bovver 64' is just as bad, lol...It turns way too easily...During White Lies, a handful of times I failed the mission, which is piss easy, imo, but because of the damn Vortex controls, it would sometimes tip upside down and Vic would get stuck and since he is under the water his health would continue to go down until death...Very annoying missions from Lance...

 

Light My Pyre is stupid too.  Lance, the dipsh*t, always driving in front of your line of fire into the attacking Sentinel XS's.  Thus, you kill him.  Mission failed.  Reload, retry x6 or so...VCS is quite painful at times, but it's still a good one...

Almost all GTA characters are mentally ill so Lance is one of them. He is a psyco and has no mercy against the other people. He has conscience only for his brother and maybe his mother.

Using M16 Carbine on street and trading//using coke. Do you think these are normal?

I'd love it if that was the only cutscene in the entire game that wasn't made with ingame animations.

Yes, I do believe that he was bipolar, like my ex wife. I`ve developed a knack for being able to tell.

That's how I always understood that line.

 

I don't think he's mentally ill, just plain stupid. Even then he's still got some intelligence. (see The Mugshot Longshot)

I imagine with his brother he felt he needed to get his approval or prove himself and so he got himself in sh*tty situations. When Victor left Lance grew up a bit.

I see exactly what you're trying to say, and the answer is nah. He's just plain retarded. Sure he acts stupid in pretty much every cutscene he appears in, but I wouldn't say he's mentally ill.

No he is mentally ill but not a Trevor though.

A funny moronic egoist. Mentally retarded and he is a killer.

I wouldn't think he's ignorant, if anything, he's pretty dependent on other folks and clingy, like how he was to Tommy.

I think it was just the cocaine going to his head than a mental illness. Notice how Lance was much calmer in VC than he was in VCS. It's the coke that made him act wild in VCS. When he stopped using it in VC, he was seen much calmer. Seriously though, he's a retard with or without the cocaine, and as a result, his stupidity cost him his life. I can't see Vic bother avenging his brother's death if he was still alive, let alone the asthmatic brother.
