What do you feel like is the most unrealistic moment in the storyline during GTA IV? 

 

I love Three Leaf Clover but its sorta unrealistic. Now I can see Niko who fought in a war to survive this. Derrick fought in the Troubles which I think was some type of war in Ireland not sure though and he even says he hasn't seen combat like this since the troubles or says its like being back in the troubles. 

But Packie is a street gangster so how he survive this?  Besides the war reason, non of them have armor and non of them got hit or injured so yeah kinda unrealistic in a sense but still epic.

Aren't you going to answer your own question?

Three Leaf Clover. Surviving a huge shootout with a sh*tload of cops? Get outta here.

The Snow Storm. Elizabeta sends Niko to retrieve the cocaine without even telling him where to find it, yet somehow Niko knows it's in Colony Island.

I think the only one that's highly unrealistic - I mean there are a lot of unrealistic moments it's a game - but it has to be Three Leaf Clover. The whole situation after the robbery is just not possible. But to be fair GTA V heists are just as unrealistic, they were inspired from this one lol.

Truck Hustle, instead of Niko steal a car to chase the truck down and kill the driver, he has to do that budget action scene of climbing onto the truck by its rear.

To be fair it was far more interesting than just another car chase. I love this part honestly. It was different even if it was a bit over the top.

I agree, but it doesn't make much sense when you think about it.

One of the phone calls that occur after One Last Thing. How does Roman know that Dimitri is on a boat in East Hook?

I've always wondered why Niko has no problem mentioning how he's killed people or been stealing drugs on the phone, especially to Roman. Wouldn't the calls be monitored and eventually lead to his arrest? If he was arrested for an extended period of time, wouldn't the phone records essentially be confessions to multiple assassinations?

I suppose maybe the ULP/IAA contact could be blocking investigation into his cases, but still.

The one where he kills mr Goldberg. He set a meeting and kill him, but he does that without any disguises, and use his freaking REAL name, and police still wouldn't be able to track him. I guess Francis did delete Niko's files, but still stupid nonetheless.

Little Jacob and Roman coming to the rescue of Niko in a helicopter, then Niko jumping off the sanchez into the helicopter. Unrealistic but awesome, if Brucie was there too it would have been complete. Like the A-Team but even better, Team Genetically Different ftw. Niko is the brains, Brucie the muscle, Roman the funny one, and Jacob is the stoner. I'd f*cking watch that show.

Now that I think about it, a lot of the missions in this game were pretty unrealistic

Anything involving a car chase. Being in New York has me realize just how crowded and packed it's roads are, meaning that just about literally any car chase would be impossible unless you wanna sit in traffic for hours. Hell, chasing one another on foot would be more realistic than the thought that the city isn't busy enough to have a bunch of car chases on the daily.

>b-b-but my gameplay

Get lost with that argument. If you wanna recreate New York as accurate as it is and still not include its multiple traffic jams that the city is known for then you shouldn't be making video games that take place in New York

Undressed To Kill does not make sense, because Niko is welcomed back into that strip club afterwards.  Unrealistic.

I don't have a problem with big shoot outs like three leaf clover.

For sure its not realistic in the strict sense of the word but then none of GTA is. You have have to accept a world where stupidly big heists and incredibly hard characters like Niko are possible.

What I found unrealistic was Niko being forced to kill either Derrick or Francis. It wasn't true to the character. I think he'd have stalled and got Gerry and Packie involved.

Nah. I think itd be more unrealistic if he wasnt because its hard to imagine many witnesses were left alive or at least to get a strong enough ID of Niko.

An advantage of Niko being a hired gun is he can stay under the radar. Hes not a well known criminal figure so he can perform acts like this and slip through the cracks.

But even just from a gameplay perspective itd be pretty annoying if the bouncers always got hostile basically wasting an interior. I think concessions can be made for suspension of disbelief from time to time. Its not like Nikos a gang member or something.

The execution of Billy is most unrealistic moment. It should be just opposite.

The way he's killed(gunshot to the head), or Johnny and the gang breaking into his prison to kill him?

They are supposed to be unrealistic, look at most movies, say DieHard for instance  smacking a car into a helicopter, not real life its a movie, so is GTA.

If GTA was realistic you would be dead within the first couple of missions

probably this

 

 

why the f*ck did johnny and co unironically decide it was a good idea to break into a f*cking maximum security prison, that i'm pretty sure had a sh*t ton of security cameras all around, not wear anything to prevent themselves from being identified like a mask or some sh*t, then execute billy right in front of the cameras. how the f*ck is he not arrested at this point

 

of course TLAD doesn't get any critcism for this like TBOGT and V do because its "gritty and bikers are cool man!!! lol xd"

in russian revolution how dimitri and bulgarin are nowhere to be seen and as soon as you approach the exit they run out like f*cking partially handicapped people at the olympics right into the police, but STILL niko nor jacob even shoots towards them and they don't get stopped by the cops it's 3D era logic right there

Three Leaf Cover for sure. That mission felt absolutely epic, but it was unrealistic as hell. Also the last story-mission - jumping with a bike off a ramp and hang on a helicopter... for sure.. ^^

TLAD when you kill a bunch of Lost members (Brian's faction) but there's still dozens in and around the clubhouse, you'd think there'd be a small group of TLMC after all that drama

Well actually, the guys running the club in this mission are gang members who took over the place once Dwayne got locked up. Once Niko clears it out however, Dwayne (I assume) takes it back over, which was why Niko did this in the first place.

Niko leaping from a trail bike, up a ramp and on to a helicopter (in the finale) was a tad outrageous. Unrealistic, but fun, nevertheless.
