Did anyone else mistake Big Smoke for CJ's father in the first mission?

Heh, I honestly did, especially the way he said "I'm gonna find out who killed your moms". So the question is, did you do that too?

No, not at all, quite simply, because CJ calls him as Big Smoke. I would never call my father by name in a manner CJ does in that situation. 

Hey, hey! Big Smoke, it's me, Carl! Chill! Chill!

 

 

Yeah, but I seriously mistook him for CJ's father the moment CJ said "Big". And the way Big Smoke says "My dog!", it also gives out a father-like feel.

heh, mistakening Big Smoke as CJ's father, that's a good one... wait you're serious?

 

The thought has never crossed my mind. Also note he doesn't react at all when he throws his bat onto the table; Smashing Beverly's picture frame. Even the worst father figure would acknowledge that in some way. I knew he was an acquaintance of some kind like a friend when I first played.

Yep, I'm serious. And Big Smoke already has the worst figure, literally:pp.

On the contrary, the way Big Smoke says "My Dog" instantly establishes him as a friend of CJ's (to me).

But that word honestly feels "fatherly" to me.

Lol does your father calls you "My Dog"? :p

 

Just kidding of course. As for the topic it never occurred to me to think that Smoke was CJs father.

Seeing how the game has a "ghetto" theme, I thought Big Smoke was calling CJ his son.

Big Smoke looks much too young to be CJ's dad and the fact Black people are a minority in the USA doesn't mean they all come from the same family.

He looks kinda old to me, and I'm not saying Big Smoke is CJ's father. This thread is meant for knowing who else mistook him as CJ's father (at least for a while).

Never. Back when i was in junior high back in 04, I have a distant memory of me and my older cousin playing it around the final few days of October after buying our copys during the release date on the 26th. (How time flies) :cry: During the first mission when CJ called him "Big" Smoke, I immediately knew it was one of his homeboys or friends, etc. Don't think CJ or anybody would call their fathers name by using Big with their first name. It's was more of a common thing back in the old days with older gang members who were considered G's by younger members.

It's a ghetto theme, Didn't expect to find a father hanging around the hood (if you know what I mean 😛)

And I thought Big Smoke was his father (for a moment) back in 2010, LOL.

To answer your question, no, I didn't ever think Big Smoke was CJ's son.

 

However, the dialogue between the two at the beginning does make it seem like he's his father lol. From the overreaction due to him mistaking CJ for a robber, the nicknames ("My dawg!"), the promises to avenge Beverly, the Book quotes and BS trying to get CJ to meet his siblings after all this time.

No. I'm quite familiar with Californian gang culture, I know that "dawg" is something two friends say to each other, not something a father would say to his son.

No, because before I took a look in the "local guide" that comes with the game and saw in the first pages the most wanted thing with CJ, BS, Ryder and Sweet.

Also I thought about the fact that it seems any black people gang is completed without a fat dude:
