I like the M.O.B and another Holland Hustlers gangs, they were very realistic recreations of black, African American gangs in New York City. The way way talked, and acted, it was spot on.

 

I also like Northwood Dominican Drug Dealers (ND3) from TBOGT. They are straightforwardly about business, you can always hear them talking with each other or on the phone about drug deals or transactions. They will not hesitate to eliminate a threat, and most times they are fearless.

 

I don't like Russian Mob. They never run away from a confrontation. Just one minor altercation with those guys and nearly every single one of them in the vicinity wants to shoot you to pieces, and they are almost always heavily armed !

That's what I was talking about in this topic on the first page below. They don't fear anyone/anything.

A cool thing about the Russians in this game is that there are two Russian gangs coded. They are the "Russian Mafia" and the younger "Russian Mob". The Russian Mafia has older members, even an elder guy in his 60's (Tommy Francovic uses his model, interestingly enough he is never seen in missions related to the Russians...), while the Russian Mob uses younger guys as peds and they appear to be more army-ish than the Russian Mafia - they also got better weapons. The Russian Mafia packs Knives, Pistols and Micro SMG's while the Russian Mob has Knives, Pistols, Pump Shotguns and freakin AK-47's! The Mafiosi also drive black pimped Schafters and Reblas, while the Mob has the pimped Uranuses and Ingots. The Russian Mafia occupies less turf in Hove Beach than the Mob actually, they got the biggest density in Firefly Island. They also have a small bit of turf in Beachgate. If you provoke shootouts around Hove Beach, both Russian Gangs will fight, yet during many mission they collaborate. I could tell similar details about all gangs in vanilla IV, rly. I know what guns they have by heart (maybe except the Jamaicans, I rarely got in conflict with them because they're awesome).

Yeah I spotted that once. I got into a gunfight with Russian gangsters in Hove Beach one night, and to my surprise I saw two different sets of Russian gangs shooting at each other. It was one serious gunfight too, heavy guns were blazing everywhere, the older gang won it.

 

The Jamaicans in TBOGT and the ND3 will shoot at each other if one of them fires a shot.

The Other Dude

I like the Yardies and the Mcreary Crime Family simply because Niko is friends with people that are part of those gangs. The Gambetti Family seemed like a solid organization based on my impression of Jon Gravelli but we never really had any encounters with the rest of the family.

 

I also really like the Uptown Riders because of the fact that they're based on the Ruff Ryders from New York. Their Bikes like the Hakuchou custom and Double T custom were the most fun motorcycles to ride. Malc and DeSean were great characters and their little chopper vs. sport bike feud with Johnny was enjoyable. It was cool to see Franklin rocking their merchandise in V.

 

I disliked the Russian Mafiya in Hove Beach after everything with the Faustin Mafiya happened. Some members are armed with shotguns and can do some serious damage if you interfere with them too. I don't remember their names but the gangs that hang around the South Bohan and Alderney safehouses are a nuisance. I'm always paranoid about losing my unique vehicles around those areas because cops are frequent and are always after people around these two safehouses. When the cop cars arrive to take the criminals away they sometimes drive into the parking spot or disrupt traffic and force them to drive into the parking spots knocking the vehicles out. It's rare but the possibility is always there. If you crash into them also they get aggressive quickly and try to either shoot, stab or fight you or ram you.

I like a lot of the Italian Mafia styled gangs, which the majority would be listed under The Commission. The Russian Mafia is also nice, I love their vehicle variants.

The Mafia

Gambetti crime family - Totally the strongest organization ingame-wisely. Likable too because they help out Niko Bellic.

Pavano crime family - They are supposed to be the second strongest organization but they always get humiliated by Niko and Pegorino. But if you take it realistically, they are doing well and they are some rich mofos.

Messina crime family - Never heard about them.

Lupisella crime family - Same as above. Only when Luis said he f*cked a Dani Lupisela, the don's daughter. Thanks for that.

Ancelotti crime family - They have alot of power but i think it got underestimated just because the main character Niko had to confront them.

Pegorino crime family - Alot of useful members in it like Ray Boccino but with a dumb leader who only cares about power.

Faustin crime family - It could have been something if Dimitri didn't infect them with inner hate.

Rascalov crime family - Putting Dimitri to lead a mafiya is like putting a chicken in a car.

Bulgarin crime family - Some dangerous people but their strenght got underestimated just because you played as Luis in TboGT.

Petrovic crime family - They are not jackasses. Won't f*ck with you unless you f*ck with them.

Gangs

Jamaicans gang, also known as Yardies - Niko's ghetto folks. Good people, can be dangerous too.

Torres Cartel - By counting its members, it is not really a cartel. A woman called Elizabeta runs it with a different house-maid she hires every month. Her hitmen are protagonists Niko and Johnny.

The Spanish Lords - They have fancy cars but they are weak people. It's a street gang anyway.

North Holand Hustlers - Niko's ghetto folks V2. I like them because Dawyne is my homie and his homies are mine too.

McReary Crime Family, also known as The Irish Mob - The most badass faction in my opinion. They had the balls to pull a bank heist. Kind of unrealistic with a 4-people crew but in real life they could have recruited some more. Packie is my No1 homie.

Liberty City Triads - Nothing similar to the real life triads. They look very weak ingame. But in realistic terms you probably don't wanna f*** with them.

Albanian Mob - The perfect boxing bags.

Korean Mob - Just some Asians with some guns. Not a mob in my opinion.

M.O.B - ???

Northwood Dominican Drug Dealers - They have to be good in selling drugs but they are not dangerous people whatsoever.

Motorcycle Clubs

The Lost MC - The gang that i would choose to join if i lived/was born in LC. Even though im not the biker type in real life.

Angels Of Death - A very good and powerful crew you don't wanna start a war with. They are equally strong to the Lost, or probably even stronger. The Lost have been sneaky pussies towards them sometimes lol.

Uptdown Riders - Good friends of Johnny with some cool guys in it.

Gangs you forgot to mention

Jewish mob - Annoying people which i like to kill. They act like Jews even in a game.

Skinheads - Good boxing bags, just like the Albanians.

Why does everyone forget about the Street Punks? They're kinda like the Skinheads, they appear like normal peds but in some missions they behave like a gang.

Yes, but their looks are different and the Italian-American Mafia is called 'La Cosa Nostra' and the Russian Mafia is called 'Bratva', some differents between them and more, but it's well mentioned from you, thanks again!

I dunno... I mean did packie left Liberty City after his monther died or did he just left her mother alone, because it's still not mentioned maybe or I don't know about that :/

In TBoGT we have a mission to follow him to the airport.

Packie appears in GTA V which takes 5 years after IV. And he leaves in the credits of TBOGT

 

 

 

Anyways, I think that the McReary Family is one of a few sets of the Irish-American Killers gang. Due to Niko being a friend of one set, he became an ally to all sets of some sorts. I also think that this gang has some turf in different areas because Bucky Sligo's friends are Irish Mobsters and Rodney McEniry (a Most Wanted guy in Berchem) is Irish as well. In GTA CTW you

kill their members in the mission Cash and Burn which happens around the same construction site you bang up in Deconstruction for Beginners in IV (strangely enough you also kill Zhou Ming on the same construction site by the end of the game)

and they also appear during Vigilante missions in southern Algonquin. About the sets, it's kind of like it is with the Jamaican Mafia. You're an ally to one Posse, yet the whole gang helps you out in case you're beaten up or something.

The best Mafia Family, I like is the Gambetti because they help Niko and they are really likeable. They are not as mean as you expect them to be. The worst family has to be the Pegorinos because Jimmy is annoying and doesn't treat his workers well, with the exception of Niko.

 

The best gang is the McReary's because they stick together and they have done some pretty crazy sh*t. Robbing a bank with 4 people takes a lot of skill. I don't like the Lost, have a bunch of idiots in there to me. Some people you cannot trust in the gang or group at all.

 

Who are the Messina Crime Family? Never heard of them at all.

The Messinas are a small, lesser known family. They play a bigger role in GTA CTW and TBOGT. In TBOGT it's shown they have spats with the Ancelottis and in GTA CTW that rivalry is brung up again with Rudy D'Avanzo's appearance...

Dafug? :O In TBoGT we have a mission to follow him together with Tony in a Helicopter to where they hide Gracie in Alderney City, not to the airport. That was the end credit in TBoGT probably that he is in the airport to fly in Los Santos(GTA V), but not a mission. :p

The Messina Crime Family appears in TBoGT only, in the mission "Practice Swing" the Union Official who is working for the Messinas where Rocco helds the Union Official and Luis plays golf and shoots with the golf-ball right in his balls.

Loved: The Lost MC and The Angels Of Death MC

Liked: Uptown Riders, Yardies and Russian Mafiya (I don't have a specific favorite family of them)

Hated: None.

 

I gotta say, most of The Lost MC's members' appearances were heavily disappointing in TLaD, which always made me wish that the Angels of Death was the protagonist's gang. In GTA IV, however, The Lost looked even better than the Angels of Death.
