Dialogue and acting

Recommended Posts

Canofceleri

Is it just me or does Ray Liotta(of Goodfellas fame)seem to not fit Tommy Vercetti's body? I mean, I just can't imagine Ray Liotta's voice coming out of Tommy's mouth, Ray's voice is too high pitched, and Tommy looks like he'd have a deep masculine voice.

 

Anyway, I am a bit scared. I don't want another Duke Nukem where Tommy Vercetti says the same goddamn five lines over and over while on the job. I would really hope at least 3 thousand of those 8 thousand character lines belong to Tommy.

 

And, should he say 'f*ck'? I think one thing that made GTA3 less realistic was the fact that those hard hitting gangsters and sly Mafiosos never said 'f*ck' once! So untrue to how gang bangers really talk. I think they should utter 'f*ck' a few times.

 

And what are some things you think Tommy should say while killing peds and running from cops? Below are some lines I wrote...

 

"Yeah, you f*ckin' pigs! Just come try and catch me."

-Tommy running from the cops

 

"You really look like you want this hammer to the side of your head."

-Tommy hammering a ped

 

"You're just beggin' me to blow yah f*ckin' brains out, aren't yah?"

-Tommy about to kill a ped

 

"Hey, watch it wise guy... unless you want me to paint the walls with your blood."

-Tommy back talkin' a bellhop at the hotel

 

"Go f*ck your mother, motherf*cker. And gimme that pizza!"

-Tommy at the pizzeria

 

"I suggest you back the f*ck off before I decorate the streets with your brain matter."

-Tommy getting pissed at a hood getting all up in his grill

 

"Hey, you f*ckin' c*nt! Nobody, and I mean nobody, turns down Tommy Vercetti. Yah got me, yah f*ckin' slut?"

-Tommy getting turned down by a hooker

 

"Ey... I know people."

-Tommy boasting

 

"Gimme your goddamn wheels and yah wont get hurt! [takes car and shoots ped in head] I lied."

Tommy carjackin

 

"Eat a f*ckin' donut, yah pig."

-Tommy cop bashing

 

"Suck a dick and die, you weak-kneed, no-balls prick!"

-Tommy getting mad

 

"Hey prick, want some of this? I'll blow yah head off and make a public display of yah body parts. Real nice, yah prick yah!"

-Tommy about to lay the smack down

Yea, games where the character repeats lines over and over piss me off, that was one of the cool things about GTA3, you could talk for the main guy, sad as it may be, it was fun.

 

BTW-I like those lines you got there, t'would be cool to actually here some swearing in an 18 rated game, i remember that song in gta3 that got cut off just before the word f*ck, that was stupid, do they really think the word f*ck is gonna get it banned?

That song is from the original GTA, and in the original it was uncut and said the 'f' word. I, however, feel it was wise to censor the songs on the radio. Because real life radio doesn't generally allow uncut music to play.

 

Many songs on GTA3 were cut if you listen closely.

some of your things are good, but you would not really want to get immature with the swearing though. but i dont think "prick" would be a good word for him to use since tommy is american and not too many americans use the word really

A)I was fooling around

B)Tommy is Italian. Vercetti is SUCH an Italian name that it's not even funny

I don't think he'll say any of that, since he's probably not written as a complete dork.

 

But I agree. They should use the F-word. All games should've used the F-word a long time ago. I mean, it's not like anyone hasn't learned the word or something. Like people would be corrupted by hearing it from the telly in another form. Stupid wanks.

I think you won't hear the same things repeated over and over again during the game from YOUR character.

 

I'm pretty sure the Ray Liotta voice-acting are for the cut-scenes only.  Just an educated guess based on how GTA3 was.  

 

Saying F*** or any other curses is fine with me...esp. for Mafia folk and gang members or even an old guy almost getting run over.  The game is rated M anyway.

 

It shouldn't be on the radio, though, cause that would be unrealistic.  :)

LMAO! That's exactly what I was thinking :)

 

Anyhow, I think they should say f*ck, I mean, have you ever seen a mafia movie where they didn't say it? Aside from made for TV movies, they say it at least 50 times during the course of the movies, often much more.

 

And also, I noticed that in GTA3, mafia guys are getting killed by Triads, and the mafia is always careful to call them "those Triads" and stuff. They should've said "chinks". I mean, do you think real mobsters are so politcally correct? They definately would be calling them chinks after one of their guys was taken out. It wasn't very realistic, and kind of took away from the scene, I think.

 

It could definately use some better writing. It's rated M already, what difference would it make. I don't think it's fair that one form of media, video games, are judged so differently from another form, movies. I mean, look at half of the M rated games out there, I bet if the content of those games were made into movies, a good chunk of those movies would be PG-13 rated without compromising any of the original material. Kind of a double standard that needs to be corrected. This game was made for adults (officially, but of course they knew at least half the players would be minors), and adults can handle that kind of stuff.

Racial slurs would be realistic (if used very sparingly) but I'd rather not see them in GTA VC and I'm pretty sure they won't be.

 

As for f*ck, it should definatly be in there.. not forced.. but GTA offers up plenty of perfect opportunities for that word to come out, plenty. I mean, you can smash elderly peoples faces into the cement non-stop for a week but the mob boss has to hold his tongue? Nah, they need to change that.. I hope they have.. If not in Vice City it's sure to come in the next installment...

 

I don't think they are crossing any lines by adding the most explicit words.. As mentioned above, the game is rated for 17+, which is the same for R rated movies.. and what is the last R movie you saw without swearing? It shouldn't be childish.. but I expect nothing but the best from R*.. They seem very street smart and self-aware of becoming corny.. I trust them to do it the right way..

 

I mean, do you even notice the word in the Sopranos? I know I don't, because they use it in proper context and conversation. Just flows right off the tongue...

 

f*ck!

Exactly, because it blends in. I mean, in Goodfellas they said it over about 250 times and you hardly noticed it. But when you did it was hilarious. Joe Pesci going "f*ck you, you mutha f*cka you" every other minute :D

The word would add so much character and realism to the game. Has anyone watched "delirious" - 80's standup with Eddie Murphy?

 

I mean, his angry negro impression is too funny. "THAT SHI' AIN'T FUNNY MUTHA' FACKUH!" Think of hearing that "mutha fackuh" when cruising down in the ghetto neighboorhood. I wouldn't stop laughing.

 

You have to watch the show to know what I mean.
