CJ killed Ryder

I killed Francis. Niko told Francis "f*ck you" when Francis asked him to kill Derrick, so I think this is what Niko would have done.

Derrick is a drug addict and a snitch so I killed him. That one mission where you break Derrick's old friend out of jail and kill him because he was badmouthing Derrick for ratting him out made me dislike him. If he could rat his own brother and friend out he'd rat Niko out too. Francis isn't much better but atleast you have something over him if he ever tries to turn on you.

I killed Derrick; why? Seems pretty ovbious the script was written in his favour. He literally sold his partners out and nobody points that out. why? He's not a cop. Get this, at least one of Francis missions lets you spare a life. Derrick's ones, none. Must people compare him to Tempenny, but i don't think Frankie ordered Niko's Mother's assasination or Roman's going to jail. This cop didn't f*ck Niko as much as Tempenny did with CJ, not even a 10%, unlike some russian f*ckers i know.

Plus; Francis doesn't treat you like garbage, and never double crosses him when he clearly has the oportunity to do so. Most people here bitching about Francis is because they hate cops.

Such a shame you can't launch a rocket at both Mcrearys

Derrick snitched on two of his friends, got them sent to prison for years, and then got Niko to murder them because of drug addled paranoia making him think they might do the exact same thing and snitch on him. He was also threatening to expose Francis and ruin his career. While I agree that from Niko's point of view it makes more sense to kill Francis (Francis is blackmailing him, he's friends with/has worked with the other McRearys) Derrick is also a piece of sh*t.

i think niko chose to work otherwise he could put a bullet in francis’ head, i don’t think niko got blackmailed at any part of the game considering he was getting paid well after all the jobs.

Francis was blackmailing Niko to work for him. He was fair about it (paid him and kept his end of the deal not to have him arrested) but he also repeatedly told him that if he didn't do these jobs for him he'd alert the authorities to his crimes and he'd go to prison for a long time. Niko did get something out of it (since Francis luckily turned out not to be a double crosser) but it wasn't a friendly situation. Whereas with Derrick/the McReary gang he was working for them by choice and was friends with them. So his loyalty would lie more with Derrick.

 

This is why he couldn't simply choose not to kill either of them - if he'd just walked away Francis would've followed through with his promise and Niko would be in jail, so if he doesn't want to kill Derrick he has to take Francis out.

 

I think it's the best balanced choice in the game. Francis - blackmailed Niko, wants to kill his own brother, corrupt cop, but also seems to be trustworthy, will pay $$$, and at least is somewhat trying to do good for the city. Derrick - is a waste of life and will probably die from an overdose anyway, wants to destroy his brother's career, snitched on his friends to save himself and had them murdered, but also has done nothing against Niko and doesn't appear to be any threat to him, and is part of a gang/family that Niko works for by choice and is friends with. I think killing Francis makes the most sense for Niko due to the loyalty thing but killing Derrick works too if you decide he's in the frame of mind of being strictly business and killing for the money no questions asked at the time. And I enjoy killing either of them, Francis for thinking he can force Niko to kill his brother, and Derrick for being a hateable sh*tty person (especially after having to kill old Aiden O'Malley for him which makes me despise him). Whenever I play it I make the decision right at the last moment, still not sure which I prefer.

Well said Billie Joe, I found myself killing Francis the very first time.

Guess it was my intuition.

However, in following playthroughs I always killed Derrick.

 

The McReary family not close to Francis but Derrick sold out his friends...and poor f*cking Aiden O'Malley, that was some sh*t!

 

I also liked Francis' missions and found him actually entertaining in his hypocrisy filled speeches

I did too. That's why I killed Derrick in my two playthourgs. I don't want a family dealing with a drug addict, a maniac and a paranoid. Francis, at least, had a goal.

Another thing is Derrick was literally an IRA terrorist. I know corrupt cops aren't great but that's not exactly an outstanding occupation either.
