In both of his appearances, Walter Mudu voiced members of Uptown gangs. First, it was King Courtney from Uptown Yardies, and second, it was Malc from Uptown Riders.

GTA V has two lift bridges into Port City from Rancho, however they don't function in game.

Similarly, the junkyard near the Arena has a nonfunctional car crusher farther back onto the property. 

 

Man, GTA 5 is f*cking boring.

  • Even if the events in the GTA franchise start in 1961 there isn't any GTA set in the 70's
  • All the GTA's set in the 60's take place in London
  • All the GTA's set in the 80's take place in Vice City
  • All the GTA's set in the first decade of the 2000's take place in Liberty City
  • Vice City is visible in 3D in the episodes set in the 80's whereas it's only visible in 2D when the action is set in the 90's in the first GTA.

gta san andreas is the only 3d universe game to have different gun sounds that were never used again in the rest of 3d universe games.

Here's a fun fact for you, I am not sure whether this has been said before but Jeremy Robard's three step programs on Pressing Issues are all short for drugs. Motivate, Demonstrate, Motivate Again (MDMA), Learn, Start, Doing (LSD), Think, Hold that thought, Complete (THC)

Have you noticed how Donald Love's rooftop garden in III is Japanese-themed yet he's American? Apparently, the model names for Donald's skyscraper still point to someone else...

 

Donald's rooftop garden model is named "tshrorckgrdn" and the alpha object group model associated with it is named "tshrorckgrdn_alfas".
Also, Donald's skyscraper model is named "tcsky_skyscrp6" and the models for Donald's skyscraper and it's first floor get their textures from a texture dictionary named "cskytosh".

 

Now, notice how none of the names contain anything related to Donald's name and how Donald's skyscraper model name begins with a T, unlike all other skyscraper model names that begin with the "csky_" prefix.
These names make it clear that the skyscraper wasn't originally designed and intended for Donald, it seems like it was given to him at a later point during the development of the game.

 

If we take all of these names and combine them together, we get "tshro" + "tosh" = "Toshro".
It may seem the line has ended up with "Toshro", but there's another useful BETA find to consider.

 

Thanks to @Sergiu, we now know that there was a character named "Toshiro" during the development of the game that was serving the purpose of the Old Oriental Gentleman. Notice how his name sounds suspiciously similar to "Toshro" from the names.
So if we take "Toshro" from the names again and compare it with "Toshiro", it becomes clear that the names are pointing to Toshiro.

 

Conclusion: Donald's skyscraper was once Toshiro's skyscraper in the early development stages of the game.

Despite being Joey Leone’s stepmother, Maria Latore is four years younger than him. Joey Leone was born March 20, 1968 (I only know the year, I’m just guessing the exact date, lol) and Maria Latore was born August 1, 1972 (same here too).

Correction, I was wrong about Toshiro being Kenji, he's actually serving the purpose of the Oriental Gentleman but I forgot to change up my post. Also indeed, it's most likely that he was up at the tower, but we don't know for sure yet.

This reminds me...in Poland during early times of YouTube (2005 - 2008) there were hundreds of humorous Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas videos (made by kids and teenagers) recorded with FRAPS and voiced by Ivona Speech Synthesizer... 

 

These were good old times, lol.

Here's a neat one: The vehicle reflections are actually different between the PC and PS2 versions of both III and VC. In the PC version, the reflection map texture is always fully white regardless of the vehicle's color. But in the PS2 version, the texture's color changes based on which colored part of the vehicle it's currently shining on. For example, if a car has a blue body and a white roof, the parts of the reflection map texture on the roof will be white and the parts of the reflection map texture on the body will be blue. This can be seen in the PC version on both III and VC by using SkyGFX by @The Hero.

- GTA 3 is the only 3D game to have helicopters as decoration.

- GTA Vice City Stories is the only 3D era game that doesn't add anything (or almost anything) to the GTA 3 story.

- The "Lady of the best tailor" of the private fare missions in GTA 5 is the same person who appears in the mission "Reuniting the Family" writing a screenplay for a movie. Maybe that is well known, but I didn't see that fact anywhere else.

- GTA Vice City Stories is the only 3D era game (and probably the only one in the entire saga) not to feature triads or any kind of asian criminal organization at all.
