You've got a cool statement for those events.

 

However, Niko didn't agree with Billy about setting the ambush, nor even met him. If anything, we would've met Billy in Niko's story.

 

Niko Bellic & Playboy X met with Billy Grey to discuss the  Chinese Takeout prior to the betrayal of Johnny K. to the Triads.

 

Billy Grey  later held a party at the clubhouse and had the gang exterminate all the Angels of Death members who ambushed it. He then later, after introducing Johnny Klebitz to Dave Grossman, sent The Lost to strike down many more AoD members -- after the ambush, he announced that Jason Michaels was killed. He also told Johnny that the AoD killed him______________, a lie which he used as a basis to fully raid and attack the Angels of Death Clubhouse (with someGrenade Launchers he purchased from Ray Boccino).

 

____Playboy X was introduced to Niko Bellic through a heroin deal and the two began a business relationship. Playboy X also makes a brief appearance in The Lost and Damned where Playboy X  refuses to meet  Billy Grey & Johnny Kleibitz during the party.____________?

 

 

During the mass raid, Billy found a large pile of heroin belonging to the AoD. Against Johnny's statement that they should abandon it since it will start a war, Billy decided to take the heroin for himself. He later sent Johnny Klebitz to Elizabeta Torres _______to sell the Heroin to a third party; however, despite having Niko Bellic and Playboy X as the backup, the deal turned out to be a sting.

 

 

In the mission Chinese Takeout,________Playboy X & Niko Bellic supervised deal,  ________it is revealed that Billy was making a deal with a Triad leader_____  he would lead Johnny Klebitz and Jim Fitzgerald to the Triad building, and would let the Triads exterminate them and take the Heroin for themselves.

 

(he also has a brief, 2-line conversation with Luis Lopez and Gay Tony in this mission).

. Niko appears briefly in the opening credit sequence, and returns in the mission "Not So Fast" where Luis steals the diamonds being _______sold by Niko and Johnny.________ Niko's final appearance is when he trades the diamonds for Gracie Ancelloti in the mission "Ladies Half Price".

 

However, when the plan came to come in the mission This sh*t's Cursed, Johnny and Jim, despite losing the Heroin, were able to escape the ambush. Not only that, but Billy also ended up arrested by the LCPD (possibly tipped off by the Triads). This left Johnny Klebitz in charge of The Lost MC

 

Playboy X has a private conversation with Niko, claiming that Forge is talking behind his back and attempting to usurp leadership from him, even though he claims he offered half of the business to Forge. Though apparently very saddened by having to kill his mentor, he offers Niko $25,000 to kill Dwayne. Subsequently, Niko is also hired by Dwayne to kill Playboy X after word hits the streets that there is a contract out on him.

 

Niko kills Playboy X  after ___Billy Grey  was killed by Johnny K. 

Johnny K. & Niko got the diamonds in The Ballad of Gay Tony.

 

 

In the GTA IV mission Three Leaf Clover, Niko can kill Luis when he is amongst the hostages in the bank, although this has no effect on the storyline

In the 3D period Liberty City is the only place where the player can't swim.

 

When a GTA is set in Liberty City the main character is never Black.

Niko and Playboy X never met with Billy. It was only Luis and Tony who did, and it was just a cameo (which surely explained some TLaD events as well). Billy wasn't in Liz Torres' house along with Johnny neither, but only Johnny, who met Niko so he and Playboy later get to the heroin deal's location in Broker, where they fight Charlie and the LCPD.

In the 3D period GTA Vice City is the only episode where neither the main character nor the main antagonist use a vehicle in the last mission.

 

Among all the 3D period episodes where the final mission features vehicles San Andreas is the only one where there isn't any helicopter implied.

 

Vice City Stories is the only 3D time GTA where the helicopter implied in the final mission is driven by the main character.

 

EDIT: In the 3D period San Andreas acts more oftenly as an origin soil for the main characters and main antagonists than as a gaming area whereas the reverse values for Vice City (more precisely Claude, Catalina, Carl Johnson and Frank Tenpenny all originate or seem to come from this mini state whereas Vic Vance and Jerry Martinez are the only ones to be from the Florida city).

 

In the 3D period Liberty City is the only place not to picture a main character and a main antagonist fighting each other in their common origins' location.

 

Among all the main antagonists from the 3D period Massimo Torini is the only one who doesn't come from a GTA-world location.

 

In the 3D period Frank Tenpenny, Toshiko Kasen and Johnny Sindacco are the only deceased characters who aren't killed by someone else since Tenpenny meets his fate in a road accident, Toshiko commits suicide and Johnny gives his last breath during a heart attack.

 

EDIT 2: In GTA 3 and Vice City the main character always starts in the east and needs to reach the west to complete his goal but paradoxically the introduction sequence is always set in the west. Maybe is it a more or less ironical wink to the american conquest of the west.

Out of all the GTA games with achievements (III, VC, SA, IV, V), SA has the easiest achievement/trophy completion of the 5.

 

The reason being is that unlike the other 4, you don't have to get 100% game completion and you don't have to collect any collectibles.

Max Payne seems like the real life incarnation. It's more likely that Dick Justice existed in the GTA Universe (a sitcom in Max Payne based on Max Payne himself).

It's not a sitcom, it's "almost a reality show, except that nobody dies for real, of course" as mentioned by a hobo you find when you trek into the slums in MP2.

You don't need to be salty, it's just a constatation about the way the various ethnicities are represented in the GTA's, nothing more, nothing less.

Despite being the most represented location since the GTA's are available in 3D Liberty City is the only place where the player can't compete in any stadium event.

 

Tommy Vercetti and Carl Johnson are the only characters of the 3D time not to make a cameo in the other episodes and also the only ones to compete in stadium competitions.

 

Although it features a plane Liberty City isn't meant to be flewn over in GTA 3 since a lot of buildings are roofless.

 

Despite being available in 7 episodes the trashmaster only offers a specific side-mission in LCS.

 

A cameo outside always has tragic consequences: Claude Speed and Johnny Klebitz are the only main characters to make a cameo outside of the location of the game where they have the main role since both are the main characters in a Liberty City game and make an appearance in San Andreas. In their both situations this appearance has dire consequences ; Johnny is brutally murdered by Trevor Philips and Claude meets Catalina who later tries to murder him before the mute one takes his revenge in the final mission.

 

To a lesser extent this also seems to apply to the secondary characters since Salvatore Leone appears in Las Venturas before being assassinated in Liberty and Maria Latore probably suffers the same fate.

 

EDIT: Liberty City's paradoxical diversity

Liberty City is globally speaking the GTA equivalent of New-York a city known among other things for its ethnical diversity and LC depicts this reality very well. While being the most represented city in the franchise LC is the first place to feature a main antagonist coming from outside of the GTA-world and the only place to feature a main protagonist and a main antagonist who are immigrants. What's more LC is the only place where an Asian and a Latino play the main role in a GTA game but for a strange reason none of the GTA's set in LC feature a Black among their main roles.

 

-In the 3D period the Black main characters are the only ones who don't collect hidden drug packages.

 

EDIT 2: Business opportunities and poverty rate are always related and depend of the region where you are:

While being the most represented  in the 3D/HD universe Liberty City is the least interesting place for business since LCS is the only episode where you can get a regular income from assets, on the other side poverty is the least important since the poor people live in buildings.

In San Andreas you can make much more money but you need to be patient, in GTA SA your theoretical daily income is lower than in VC with more wide spread and numerous assets that only produce money fastly where you're beside of the dollar symbol whereas you need to wait a whole week to receive your income in GTA 5 and you need several months so your companies become profitable. Poverty is also more important than in LC as you can see with the numerous persons who live in tiny caravans and the decrepit houses.

Vice City is a paradise for business, your companies regularly generate a lot of money everyday and become worth the investment very fastly. The destitution rate and the social inequalities reach their culmination in the Florida city since the Little Haïti hovel shacks are less than 1 mile away from the luxurious Starfish island mansions.

Despite Clay Simons and Terry Thorpe being close biker buddies, Clay Simons is actually 23 years older than Terry Thorpe!

Clay Simons was born April 22, 1954.

Terry Thorpe was born June 25, 1977.

You’d think they’d be at least somewhat close in age right?

LCS and VCS are the only 3D-era GTA games that feature married couples: LCS features Kazuki and Toshiko Kasen and VCS features Marty-Jay Williams and Louise Cassidy-Williams.

Coincidentally, both pairs have some sort of dispute between them: Kazuki prefers to hang out with his men rather than Toshiko and Marty beats up Louise.

 

"Museum Piece" in IV, "Collector's Item" in TLaD and "Not So Fast" in TBoGT are basically the same mission, just shown from different point-of-views. Also, this is the only mission where Niko, Johnny and Luis cross paths at the same time.

The "diamonds" element of IV's story is rather funny, they always keep going from one person's possession to another.

 

Note: I never played IV, but watched a few videos of it.

In SA, there's a building in San Fierro with three large banners that read "Buy", "More" and "Jeans" on each banner. It's located near Woozie's place. If you look closely at the windows of the building, you'll see a mannequin in a black crop-top and blue jeans that resembles Mona Sax from Max Payne 2 a lot. And ironically, the woman in the "Chicks 'n' Guns" poster in VC is Mona's face model in MP2 (source: grandtheftwiki.com).

Salvatore Leone in LCS gives you the most missions then any other character in the franchise. 

 

San Andreas has the most missions in the franchise with a total of 100 missions. GTA IV has the second most missions in the series with a total of 88.
