Such an ending! (Deal)

Recommended Posts

Just finished gta and gotta say, what a ending! I picked deal and gonna do revenge at a second play through. How was the ending for you guys? I thought it was amazing and fitting. Is revenge better though?

I personally prefer Revenge, but I guess you should complete it before people start discussing it and you accidentally get a spoiler.

I like Deal. Kill Darko, realize the ultimate revenge doesn't make the pain go away, go out on a limb and try to repair the past instead of destroy it, get f*cked over again, become x5 more bitter because of it. Pegorino isn't a good enough bad guy for that ending confrontation.

Many might desagree but Deal is the cannon ending imo.

The game's been out for almost 10 years. If someone gets upset because you gave the ending away, that's their fault for not having played it within 10 years.

When I play I always let Darko live. Like Roman says it looks like he doesn't enjoy life much anyway, so by letting him live it increases his suffering. So for Darko he has to live with what he did, which would be agony.

Then I choose Revenge because by now Niko hates Dimitri with such an anger that his first thought would be to take him out after Roman, the suffering he went through, the phone call taunts, Niko would hunt Dimitri down for all that sh*t.

If I could change the ending it would be Bulgarin who met his demise at the hands of Niko since he pops up a couple of times to harass him.

To me it felt strange that Pegorino was the ultimate antagonist and it was weird that Dimitri would be having a friendship with Pegorino but this is the reason Pegorino ambushes Roman's wedding.

Deal is allot better than Revenge but leaves the game feeling empty (which i guess is the point).

Deal is much better I always let Darko live because it changes Niko so then he does the deal with Dimitri who f*cks him over and Dimitri's death on Happiness Island in deal is much more satisfying than killing him on the platypus in Revenge.

I don't think it's canon, but Deal is a much better ending than Revenge.

I tend to go for the Revenge ending from my own viewpoint. I have tried Deal and find it enjoyable but my instinct on the first play through was that Dimitri would never work with Niko and would double-cross him again based on everything that had happened between them so far in the game which meant that he wasn't to be trusted. So taking revenge on him and ending the conflict for good seemed the logical choice to me. Similar logic was used when having to choose Francis or Derrick McReary earlier on in the game. My instinct there was that you would always be in Francis's pocket if you didn't get rid of him.

It's difficult to pick a favourite. I like that Deal's more poetic, but I find it hard to believe Niko would ever trust Dimitri again even for money. Revenge makes more sense to Niko's goals, but Kate's death isn't as impactful as Roman's IMO.

 

I do like killing Dimitri on the Platypus though. Feels like everything's come around full circle. For the purpose of the thread I'll go with Revenge. It was the choice I went with instinctively on my first play through and it was a nice twist having to kill Pegorino after Dimitri naturally assuming it would just end with Dimitri.

I picked Deal too--Just cause I like the payout it gives!! Lots of cash to spend! But it is a damn shame that romans no longer with us if u pick that ending! Would be nice to share some money with him!

Lots of cash to spend...in what? Guns, Sprunk soda and burguers? Prrr, you can get 1 million easy doing Steve's thefts missions.

I say Deal is canon.

-It's a much more climatic/cinematic conclusion to the game.

-They obviously put more effort into crafting the mission, even the weather changes into a massive storm near the end.

-Whether you kill Darko or not Niko expresses how getting revenge, on a man he spent so long looking for, didn't/wouldn't fulfill him.

 

Revenge on the other hand is very anti-climatic.

-You kill Dimitri in a very bland uninspired shootout.

-Pegorino who you don't even meet until the 3rd act is the final boss.

-Death of Kate has nowhere near the impact as the death of Roman does.

-Where does that 250k come from? In Deal its accounted for.

 

I think Niko compromises in an attempt to change/put killing behind him and it bites him in the ass.

Dang! U know what? I just realized something. Now I'm going to have to play through the whole game all over again because in order to get the "Taxi achievement" to unlock romans taxi cab rides I would imagine you need to have him alive for that!! Should've thought about that achievement before I had him killed! Oh well.

Indeed, there is.

 

Once Niko has realized that the killing won't satisfy him anymore and he should strive in putting his family in safety and move on, he pulled off a last job with Dimitri that'll guarantee the economical advantage for him and his cousin without killing anymore people and putting Roman in danger.

Isn't the whole point of multiple endings the fact that none of them are canon? Except in our own heads? It's one thing saying which one we like best and which one makes the most sense to us but surely that's a matter of personal opinion?

You just hit the jackpot. As you said, there is no canon ending, since they're all valid.
