Meet Yusuf Amir (New Video)

Recommended Posts

FearTheLiving

Yeah as much as I love the whole Italian Mafia story and wanted the next GTA character to be a member of the Gambetti Family, doesn't mean Arabs are bad (well I'm sure some of them are, but you can say that about any race)

 

*Smile*

No, we shouldn't. Playboy X was being stupid. He heard Amir was from Dubai and thought it was African, even though its Middle Eastern.

You should listen better... he says something in the lines of 'we're all the same African/Middle Eastern'. That they almost have the same skincolor and such.

 

But anyways Playboy X was a retard. You'd be stupid not to kill the damn idiotic bastard.

That comment wasn't about skin color, man, it wasn't meant in a superficial way. But Yusuf is from Dubai.

Indiginous people from Dubai do generally have a very dark skin color - not one too indistinguishable from Black people. And this is coming from an Arab who (probably devoted too much time to) know of the different Arab peoples.

 

I feel R* got it right the first time around with Playboy-X's comment (I am certain it had something to do with complexion, but I would be very interested in learning about what else it could have been about). However something made them change their minds - maybe to avoid inadvertently giving credit to the 'Arab = Sand-ni**er' insult or maybe a rich Dubai share-holder with an identity crises took exception to his people being correctly physically likened to Black Africans. An interesting alternative would be like some almost 40% of the Dubai population, Yusuf is originally from another Arab country, further up north.

 

I am very interested in learing more about this character and really looking forwards to buying EFLC - and yes, it is like the first Arab in a GTA game.

Bit off topic, but are there any Arabian pedestrians in IV?

Not really sure bro, I've never heard any Arabic speech or any likeness of an Arab accent during English speech throughout my gameplay time (about 250 hours saved and countless other messing around without saving afterwards).

 

Though IV is immense, so I can never have come across or heard all pedestrians.

Aren't some of the Hotdog vendors Arabic, and isn't Hossan Arabic also?

No, can't recall any hotdog vendor with an Arabic accent. South Asian yes though.

 

And definately, I can't believe I forgot Hossan - he is probably the first Arab in a GTA game.

I think I saw a ped who had an Arabic skin tone. He didn't speak with any giveaway accent though. Wore a business suit.

 

EDIT: And I think Roman's taxi driver, Mohammed, is Arabic.

Hossan is from Egypt.

lol you do know Egypt is a country and Hossan being Egyptian is just his nationality right? Arabic is a ethnicity and the majority of modern Egypt is full of Arabics so yes Hossan would be an Arab.

Money Over Bullshit

Somebody a few pages back said Muslims were outraged at the song "Arab Money" because it contained spoken exerpts from the Qu'ran but If I'm not mistaken it's actually the remix that contains the offensive material... not the original version which is featured in this trailer. The suposed Islamic speak in the original is pretty much just jibberish.

I started to think about Yusuf's car the Super drop diamond \ Drop head Phantom : is it yellow colored like a regular paint or is it gold plated just like the Buzzard , the Chopper in his house , the Uzi & the phone\Gold bar (or whatever that is) he have ???

It also seems to have the same rims of the Cavalcade in the game right ?

No, 'F*cking A' means 'F*cking Awesome'

 

Or in some cases 'Affirmative' or some sort of combination of the situation. It is a term of excitement, usually.

I found something unique while doing the construction site mafia mission for playboyX

 

When you start out the mission, there's a golden patriot sitting outfront for you. Also if you decide not to take the golden patriot, it will not dissapear because it's already been parked for you infront of PBX's crib.

 

You think Yusuf left this out front for niko/playboyx, or was this a small *hint* that yusuf would be a gold loving nutcase?

Yusuf doesn't even know about PBX' plan, and he definetly doesn't support it (he turns all of Niko's hard work into a memorial for union workers who died, lol).

I looked throguht the internet files with SPARK and found this message from Yusuf Amir on libertycityrealestate.net.

 

A Message from Yusuf Amir

Tragedy struck today when members of the Liberty City Union for Construction Workers were gunned down on the site of my Castle Gardens property development. The idea that workers can strike is an entirely alien concept to me as I have worked hard my whole life and the more cynical amongst us might chalk this catastrophe up to karma. However, I would like to take this opportunity to offer my heartfelt sympathies and condolences to the families of the victims who died needlessly fighting a futile liberal cause. Out of respect for the dead, I am not going to use the word corruption but this whole incident reeks of foul play. What were union officials doing with semi-automatic weapons? I am confident that the authorities will carry out a full investigation. In the meantime, I pray for your families to struggle through life knowing this didn't have to happen this way. Work on the Castle Gardens project has been ceased indefinitely. I knew I should have listened to my wives and stayed in the Middle East.

 

Does that mean he definately will go back? biggrin.gif
