Playboy X or Dwayne?

Recommended Posts

BTurnerARK

Moneys not really necessary in 4 for anything but guns and prostitutes. I went with Playboy the firstime. Then Dwayne. Playboy is annoying and Dwayne is boring. I usually killed playboy for his apartment though. The view is worth it.

I killed Playboy because you get the Penthouse and Claude's Clothes from GTA III. Also if you kill Dwayne,Playboy says he doesn't want to talk to you ever again while Dwaye gets over Playboy's Death

Playboy X. I admit, I kinda liked the guy, but I chose Dwayne to get the loft. Playboy was going places, but as much as I respect his urban pragmatism, I'll choose the better reward.

Probably the best part of getting the X penthouse is calling Dwayne and playing a game of pool in there, like a final payback.

Choosing to kill Dwayne is like choosing option A or B in GTA V.

 

In my opinion stupid.

In my opinion stupid.

Well, with "A" Micheal and Franklin get 50% of Trevor's UD Cut (so if he had $40M, Micheal and Franklin would get a total of $60M each), but its still a dumb choice in the long run. Franklin can also still hang out with Jimmy and Lamar (but only at night with the latter), but not Micheal, because while he assures Franklin they are still friends, Trevor being killed/ killing Trevor affected him more than he lets on, and he "needs time to sort his feelings out". Also Micheal starts having those night terrors (the ones he had when his family left him earlier in the game) again, implying that Trevor's death/ killing Trevor affected him even worse,

 

With, "B", Micheal's UD Cut goes to his family, who have moved out of Rockford Hills and possibly Los Santos, his entire family hates Franklin, Trevor hates Franklin, the only person who will hang out with him is Lamar (once again, night only), and feels like a total downer ending.

 

So yeah, "C", where all loose ends are tied up and Micheal and Trevor really do "Bury The Hatchet" is the best ending.

I bet most of us killed Playboy X for that Claude outfit.

 

And maybe because Playboy is an asshole.

I killed Playboy X mostly because he was a douche. And, of course, that apartment.

IMO killing either makes sense. Dwayne thought of Niko as a friend whereas Playboy just thought of him as a hitman. I think Niko liked Dwayne more and thought Playboy was just a punk, arrogant and selfish, despite Dwayne being miserable. So it probably makes more sense from a moral point of view to kill Playboy. But killing Dwayne reflects Niko's desire for money (which is getting strong at this point in the story, remember how he coax's Francis into paying him $5000 for a hit) and how cold he is because despite other things he will kill Dwayne for the money.

 

I guess if Niko does kill Dwayne he remembers his moral code which is not be greedy... so next time he has a similar decision of killing Francis or Derrick he kills Francis.

 

Obviously killing Playboy also makes more sense from a gameplay perspective because you get his apartment, outfit, unique Patriot as well as Dwayne's friendship and perks.

Playboy was a pompous dick the whole time. i did not like him. plus you get a free house, Dwayne as a friend and his backup ability.

 

i missed on wearing Claude's clothes tho..

I've killed Playboy X on every play-through I've ever done. I never really liked his character, plus the rewards you get for killing him far outweigh what you get if you kill Dwayne (New safe-house/parking space, his unique Patriot, Claude's outfit and Dwayne's friendship & backup vs. $25,000). No contest, as far as I'm concerned.

I don't see how anyone could say they liked Playboy X. I mean, even his name is f*cking stupid. The guy was an egotistical, hypocritical douchebag wannabe-gangster who betrayed his own mentor and then had the gall to pretend he didn't do it by repeatedly lying to Dwayne's face. Sure, X had "ambition", but he was still a massive sh*t-head and the way he was treating his associates (he put a hit out on Dwayne even after being responsible for putting him in the slammer in the first place), he would've gotten smoked by someone else sooner or later.

 

You kill X, you get his sweet pad, a special vehicle, and the Claude outfit. You kill Dwayne, all you get is $20k which is pretty much worthless since the only thing worth spending money on in the game is food and weapons/ammo. Even Niko shows palpable hesitation and reluctance when he gets ready to execute Dwayne, which speaks volumes about how sh*tty of a choice it actually is.

 

Sure, Dwayne's rampant bitching & moaning can get annoying, but he's legitimately depressed, that's just how it is. You'd be depressed too if your empire was basically stolen from you by your own ex-protege, your girlfriend was found to be cheating on you whilst you were locked up despite you treating her like a queen, and all your so-called associates and friends either betraying you or suddenly forgetting you exist. Niko calls him out on his bitching if they hang out sometimes (notably after getting drunk) but the truth is, Niko is just as miserable as Dwayne is for obvious reasons, and they feed off each others' misery. It's not really healthy for either of them, but Dwayne does eventually show signs of overcoming his depression and he clearly thinks highly of Niko for having his back.

 

And furthermore, showing how much of a scumbag X really is, if you do kill Dwayne, he cuts off all contact with you, saying that you're too cold and a psycho. What the hell type of hypocritical sh*t is that? f*ck X, lol.

I think Dwayne is definitely more of a likeable character than Playboy which is why killing the latter makes more sense. The reason the choice is there is to question whether Niko will betray his morals for money. The irony is that if you kill Playboy you actually get a better reward gameplay-wise even though when the choice is presented you are offered money for killing Dwayne but nothing for killing Playboy.

Kill Playboy X. He simply ignores you after you kill Dwayne. Kill Playboy gives you his Penthouse, which is good since there are only a few safehouses, compared to the 3D era games, like GTASA and GTAVC. You can also hangout with Dwayne, and if your friendship is high, he'll send two bodyguards to help you out. So the best 'option' is to kill Playboy X, IMO.

hello. i read through the first and 4th page here. and only skimmed through the pages in-between, but am not sure if this has been covered. on the PlayStation 3 there is a trophy called "Liberty City (5)". the conditions are, "Your friends all like you above 90%.". now the main thing i wonder is... if you choose to kill Dwayne, will this trophy become impossible to get?

okay... so it is indeed impossible to acquire the trophy "Liberty City (5)" after killing Dwayne.

No, you have Roman, Brucie, Little Jacob, Packie. You just need those four above 90%.

Once they are above the 90% the game counts it as done, so you could have Brucie at 90% and the others at 85%. Then if Brucie falls below 90% it's ok, because the game counts the 90% as 'completed' so then just focus on the others.

It's tedious to do the achievement but it's possible to take the friend out on every possible thing on their phone list in one go. So you could say, take Little Jacob out drinking, so do everything else first - darts, pool, strip club, eating then finally go drinking. This makes getting their % up faster.
