Ethnicities/Nationalities

OK, so GTAIV is set in Liberty City, which is based off of New York City. I think that R* did an amazing job capturing the ethnic diversity of NYC and recreating it in LC. It makes the city feel so much more alive and diverse, like the city it's based on!

I was just playing GTAIV, and found a French pedestrian, which I had no idea existed before. That is the reason behind me creating this topic. I know that there are a lot of different groups of ethnicities/nationalities in this game, but I was just wondering if there were some that you guys found, or any that you knew of.

 

I searched the forum and didn't find a topic on this, so thought I'd create one!

Your not the only one i found this pesdestrain aroud in liberty city the other day crusing aroud liberty city and i desided...well not beat him withy baseball bat and take his money? i did. And since this spefic pedestrain is frech he's has a accent. R* did do a grate job expading and creating many different pedestrain modles in gta 4. One of the reasons i think gta 4 is still a grate game.

The diversity in this game is really mind-blowing.. I play this game for 7 years now, but still I hear new accents or other languages than english.

 

It´s very funny to me when I suddenly hear german words in the game. I even heard two NPCs this weekend I didn´t hear before. Jacked a Cognoscenti in Middle Park East, driven by a woman. She shouted: "I´ll f*ck you up the ass, you Hurensohn!" ("Hurensohn" is the german word for "son of a bitch"). Another NPC shouted "Arschloch, Arschloch, Arschloch!" ("Asshole, asshole, asshole!") after me.

I'm pretty sure I once had a German passenger in a taxi mission scream "Scheisse!" when I had a bit of a nasty crash...

From IV perspective in particular excluding EFLC, there was barely any big time character who happened to be a white american , other than the U.L.P. Guy , Michelle/Karen , Gravalli , and Goldberg .

 

Liberty City was really filled with all kinds of civillian's variety .

Official General

* White American (generic)
* Italian American
* Irish American
* Jewish American
* African American
* Hispanic American
* Puerto Rican
* Dominican
* Jamaican and other Black Caribbean
* West African (possibly Nigerian)
* Russian and other similar Eastern European

* British
* Albanian
* Chinese
* Korean
* Indian

That's what I could definitely identify. There were tourists that I believe where from somewhere in Europe, possibly German and French.

Damn, I need to find a Aussie ped or a Scottish ped. That would be very awesome.

 

"You stupid pommie little bastard" in a Aussie or Scottish accent would be great.

GTA V lacks in this aspect. I know that New York is a place for immigrants, but LA is a very popular tourist location, and V didn't do it justice.

I love the fact that there's a small Portuguese neighborhood in Alderney with portuguese flags on the buildings and portuguese shops. There's also portuguese speaking peds, with a Brazilian accent though. They really did an amazing job with both LC and Alderney.

I think it's based on a Portugese neighborhood in Newark

I liked being chased by the latino officers not sure if he was Dominican or Puerto Rican it always funny when he said "Te Veo..."

A woman heard on Vladivostok FM who says she's from Poland and likes this radio station.

As for these Hove Beach women - she says texts like:

 

 

 

Nie zastrzel mnie! - Don't shoot me!

Zwolnij! - Slow down!

Uważaj! - Watch out!

Nigdy więcej! - No more time!

Przepraszam? - Pardon?

Jesteś kryminalistą - You're a criminal

Kiedy wy ludzie przestanie się bić? - When you people finally stop the fight?

Ej, jesteś głupi? Idiota... - Hey, are you stupid? Idiot...

Cholera jasna! - Holy sh*t!

Co się dzieje? - What's going on?

and my favourite: Co to kurwa jest?! - What the f*ck is it?!

/end of Polish lesson

 

Anyway it's fake Polish accent and sounds like an American woman trying to speak Polish and it actually is :p Just heads up.

That's awesome, I don't think I've ever seen the Polish pedestrian before! I'll have to go find her and harass her just to hear her speak :p

 

Also, I found a video with a Portuguese pedestrian for those who were curious

any big city is ethnically diverse. london can be another example but you people here think nyc/liberty is the only city with lots of races.

why the f*ck do you americans always put the name of the country next to the city, it's so stupid.

 

clearly you haven't been to any of these places otherwise you wouldnt act so wildly surprised.

 

you probably haven't travelled anywhere.

 

you can have lots of ethnicities in ANY big city. why do you think it only applies to nyc/liberty? stop kissing its ass.

 

as for the game, the people are samey. they all wear either grubby clothes or suits. hardly diverse. nyc in real life isnt that worldly anyway with all those annoying usa flags everywhere
