How does Niko not get deported? He's in the country illegally and when he gets busted they just let him go
Canonically, Niko never gets busted. If getting busted was part of the story, he probably would get deported.
-In "Easy As Can Be" when Niko's just stolen Lyle's car how does he know so quickly the pursuers are a threat? He looks over to see the car parked across the street and says "No risks Brucie? Maybe this juicing is f*cking with your head" like after a couple of seconds.
Considering that Brucie had Niko find and kill Lyle, he obviously knew that a car with gangsters pulling up and looking in Niko's direction was going to be trouble.
In the mission "logging in", Roman sends Niko to a internet cafe even though he's in front of a computer.
Why is Roman such a dick to Niko?
Why can't he check out his e-mail in the taxi central?
Niko was new to the city so he wouldn't know where else to find a computer apart from Roman's depot. Who knows, maybe Roman also wanted to set up Niko with Alejandra as well.
Carmen's abilty to heal gunshots over the phone always puzzled me.
She's a nurse, so she obviously knows first-aid. She tells Niko what do do through the phone, and it's Niko healing himself - R* just didn't animate this because most players would find that annoying after a while.
I think this type of unrealistic, useless gimmicks are completely at odds with any type of logic because of the game's more grounded feel, and just breaks the immersion otherwise.
What kind of logic is used to make any sense for a nurse to magically send across a quick health boost simply from calling her????
Still more realistic than a street gangster from the hood being able to steal and fly a Jetpack from a heavily guarded military base without any prior experience or knowledge.
Why does everytime Niko is chasing someone, the buses, the trucks, the bikes and the cars that are on his path are always having an accident or can't drive straight? Is this some sort of a shady plan where members of the IAA are sent to prevent Niko from killing more people?
I am guessing that this would happen more often if R* would be able to script the traffic so that is happens all the time at random times. Most of the time the crashes are a result of disruption caused by Niko or the people being chased.
Why does the Chinese boss that Luis and Tony meet during Chinese Takeout is a different guy wearing the same outfit in This sh*t's cursed? Plastic surgery?
Canonically, he looks just like he does in TBoGT. But since TLAD came out first and they didn't have much with TBoGT done yet, the models changed. It's the same with Jim Fitzgerald in IV looking extremely different than his TLAD appearance, or Ray Bulgarin compared between IV and TBoGT.
How did Packie never notice the chopper following him to the place where Gracie was held?
I wouldn't be surprised if he was playing the radio full-volume or thought it was just a civilian helicopter. There is no explanation for not finding the helicoper hovering right above his house suspicious, though.
To me it never made any sense how Johnny (and the rest of The Lost) is able to freely roam Liberty City while the bridges are locked due to a terrorist threat. If I were a cop in LC, I'd find a biker gang a bigger terrorist threat than an Eastern-European civilian trying to cross the bridge.
