GTA IV confessions

Recommended Posts

SonOfLiberty

I've never understood people who think Roman would make a better than protagonist than Niko or cast the blame for all their problems on Niko's shoulders. Yes while Niko loses his cool from time to time lets not forget it's because of Roman's deception initially that forces Niko to clean up his sh*t.

 

I like Roman, but at the same time he's kinda of a loser. He only manages to turn his business around because of luck (His old business got burnt down so he claimed it with insurance money) not because he's a cutthroat businessman. Besides that had the events of GTA IV never happened he would've been Vlad's bitch forever and get beaten up by loan sharks every day eventually running his taxi depot into the ground..

Didn't play the expansions until April of 2012. The whole exclusivity timed crap coupled with my hiatus from gaming between 2009 and 2012 is to blame for that.

 

Now that I reminisce on it, I actually bought The Complete Edition as a birthday gift to myself (for my 20th) on April 12th of that year lol. Played BoGT first and easily sunk in at least eight hours in just one play session. I was f*cking mesmerized by it. TLaD was solid as f*ck too but Gay Tony was just something else entirely 👌

Why did you take a hiatus from gaming?

Senior year of HS during 2009/2010 and then Uni from 2010 to 2012. Just alot of real life stuff knocked me in my face. I still played (very little though) during the summer breaks of '10 and '11. 

 

By 2012 though, and pretty much when I bought EFLC (partly in due to GTA V hype too) I was back into gaming regularly again. I must've played a fk load of different games that year, nowadays it's just GTA V or RDR2 😔

 

Another confession:

 

I could never win that damned QU3BED game in GTA IV. It was literally the only thing keeping me from 100% completion in it & felt like such a slap in the face after doing so many other huge mind numbing tasks but a fking arcade game is what stood between me and the finish line 😔

-Have never played pool

-Finished this game so many times, and not 1 time can I remember not using the Turismo cheat

-Have always killed Darko at the end of the game (except for maybe once or twice just to see what would happen and to see the other dialogue).

Never once won or even finished the QU3BED game.

 

Never 100%'d or platinum'd GTA IV or the expansions.

 

Didn't play the expansions until like three years after they were out.

- Never used cheats in this game

- Completed the game 100% only once, while I completed storyline missions 4 times in my whole life.

- I like the Deal Ending better.

- I always chose Francis in the place of Derrick.(both are rats but Francis has some use with wanted level thing)

- Played this game only on PC and never on consoles. 

- I like Niko in suit and tie or in formal shirts. I never changed back to his early game appearance at all.

That's all the "confessions" I could think of! :D

  • In my current playthroughs, I pick Deal. Used to go for Revenge but Deal is much darker, and I wanted to change things up a little anyway
  • I always ditch Russian Shop clothes by the time I complete Blow Your Cover
  • I guess I did it because of challenge since there's not a lot of nut vendors in LC, but in one of my latest playthroughs, I made Niko a goddamn vegetarian. No burgers or hot dogs, just nuts
  • When I didn't have cable several years ago, I'd spend my time watching the in-game television
  • The longest I can go without playing IV is a month...yeah I have too much free time

Not related to actually playing the game, but every time I watch a video looking for a specific point about the story, I end up watching like three or more missions until I realize that I already got what I wanted, lol. That says something 😛.

I'm a geography/maps nerd and GTA maps/cities totally play into this, I like knowing all the place names and the layout of the maps etc. IV is particularly good for it because it has lots of different areas and even better because of how realistically a lot of them are positioned (especially Manhattan/Algonquin). Once I had a good feel for which areas of New York are represented by each Liberty City area I had fun looking at the real New York on google maps spotting them :lol:. Awesome to look on street view and see how brilliantly realistic some of them are too (Brighton Beach/Hove Beach is epic)

As a player who isn't crazy for %100 completions, especially that I get bored of side-missions quite quickly and rather play the story mostly, I found myself a good way that extends my playthroughs of expansion packs like TLAD and TBOGT due to their short stories: after each storyline mission, I do a mission of each of Gang/Drug Wars, Bike Races/Triathlons and Bike Thefts/Club Management, as well as a mission of Stubbs' Dirty Laundry after every two storyline missions in TLAD (since Stubbs' Dirty Laundry offer five missions only). Unrepeatable side-missions, namely Angus' Bike Thefts, Stubbs' Dirty Laundry and Club Management's celebrity tasks eventually get finished, while repeatable ones, especially Gang and Drug Wars, would not necessarily reach the point where every weapon is delivered to the safehouses, but fun is what matters. But until you get to the end of the story, there would be at least a weapon delivered nonetheless.

 

I'm sure I'm not the only one, but just thought it would be good if this method was helpful for anybody.

It always makes me laugh when Niko's getting a double lapdance and he asks "Are you two sisters or cousins or something?" because 90% of the time one of them is black and one is white and they couldn't look less related lmao. I guess they didn't think of that when they wrote the line 😛 

 

When a ped annoys me I have way too much fun getting in a fight with them, getting them to punch me in sight of a cop so they get arrested, waiting until they put them in the back of the car, jacking the car with the ped still in the back and then taking them for a ride while they plead to be let go, and dispose of them whichever way I see fit lol

I'm the opposite lol, I almost always pay the toll and I actually enjoy doing it. I'm amused that they included it and I like the animation of throwing the money and the pointing move the cop does as he wishes you a good day. I do skip it in TLAD though (so easy to do on a bike plus it's fitting for a biker character). Also I like how you don't have to pay and can just drive straight through the barrier if you're in an emergency vehicle, nice touch.

Not a confession but I once gave my own disc of GTA IV(PC version) to my younger cousin in 2014 who still plays this game till today almost every week and I think it's one of the best decisions I made in my life. He's busy with his studies but always finds time to chill at night while playing this beautiful game and I am happy he enjoys it. :)

I haven't seen much of the PC version's clothes but I know it has buttoned up suits so I'm going to have to disagree just based on that, I want a buttoned up suit dammit. Does the PC version have all the console clothes plus extra or is it missing some console ones?

PC is missing this suit and pants (but it got converted so you can have it)

Console is missing this suit and pants (edited textures, can't be bothered finding original):

Each version has completely different suits, with coats being the only exception from the outfits.

Fair enough in that case! I do like the console suits with no tie/open shirts. But that second suit in @B Dawg's post above is boss

As I said in previous posts of different threads, I prefer the Deal ending to the Revenge ending. There's a lot of reasons, but an outstanding one of them is that Dimitri won't be standing with bare hands after getting shot, dropping his gun and begging for his life when he's confronted. Why don't I want the antagonist to be noticeably humiliated when I obviously want him dead? Because while taking him out is intended to be satisfying, watching him being humiliated kills that desire and prevents me from taking him seriously at that moment, especially that he becomes totally powerless in order to pull the execution on him.

Because while taking him out is intended to be satisfying, watching him being humiliated kills that desire and prevents me from taking him seriously at that moment, especially that he becomes totally powerless in order to pull the execution on him.

I can totally relate to this, I don't enjoy the humiliation aspect of executing him either. Same with most of the other executions actually. However, as part of the narrative of the game where killing people and getting revenge often isn't a cool/badass thing and is rather sad and depressing and not as satisfying as expected for everyone involved, I can get into it. I like how I got mixed emotions from it, going from gunning for him to feeling pity, relief when he was shot in the head fairly quickly, but mixed with knowing justice was done, and knowing that it's all kinds of mixed emotions for Niko too.

 

But yeah the Deal ending with him dying "in battle" is definitely less guilt inducing, it's also more satisfying killing him last and as revenge for Roman. There's a lot that's good about both endings though so I'm still not sure which I prefer.

 

Side note this reminds me of how much I HATE Devin's execution in V. It's the same thing where he's helpless and humiliated so you pity him. But much worse because what he did to the protagonists wasn't as bad, and there isn't that narrative where killing people is supposed to be somewhat depressing and emotionally affecting for the protagonist even if it's an enemy, so it's just presented as if it's supposed to be cool and funny that they're killing him that way. Found it sickening the way they gloated over him in the trunk. These situations were handled with much more class in IV.

Yeah, I agree. Although Revenge makes much more sense to me (don't see why Niko would want to work with the man who has tried to kill him & his cousin), I feel that killing Dimitri to avenge Roman is more epic than killing him on the Platypus

And definitely more epic than killing Pegorino.

 

As for making sense, I can see Niko pushing his luck to work with Dimitri in one case: he might have considered a chance that this goes right (even though still very unlikely with Dimitri), which would really help Roman, especially that he's getting married. Otherwise, he would take his chances to survive and take Dimitri out for betraying him again.
