Which Game choices have you never taken?

Recommended Posts

Domand

Gta IV have presented plenty of game choices, typically choosing to spare or kill a character. Choices such as Kill or Spare Ivan, Kill Derrick or Francis, Kill or Spare Clarence, or other game choices such as Revenge or Deal ending. Theres also other game choices that haven't been mentioned as well. So out of curiosity, out of all the game choices, which one have you never taken? Pretty much which game choice have you always done same the option every time? The only one I believe I have never changed was the choice between Playboy X or Dwayne. I have always gone after Playboy X. The rest though at this point I have pretty much managed to try all the options.

I believe I selected all the choices apart from one - I've never killed Cherise Glover. I just couldn't do it, even if she screwed Dwayne over, because I felt she genuinely felt bad for what she did.

I've never killed Dwayne and Ivan. Killing Dwayne just doesn't feels right and the reason I spared Ivan everytime is because I am good guy and I value human life.

I've never killed Cherise. I was originally going to the first time, but her excessive pleading made me reconsider. Never did the same for Clarence however, I always knew he was full of sh*t, especially since he ends up trying to kill you later on anyway. However, I do (sadistically enough) enjoy listening to him cry and beg like a bitch before I do him in.

 

Otherwise, I've tried every other choice at least once. That's what I love about IV, the different choices give the game more replay value. Shame how V never built on this, aside from a few lazy choices in the end.

The choices could've beared more consequences, but it was still more impressive than anything that came before. I love how some of them turn up as random characters later on. GTA V not only dropped the ball, but so did RDR. I thought it was going to be a given, but sadly not.

 

It's just one of those ideas R* had, but haven't really expanded on in detail since.

I'd never pick the killing Dwayne option or the Deal ending. The Deal ending sounds like nothing Niko would ever do. Niko also seems just so out of character in the killing Dwayne option. That option was also rather sloppy whereas the killing Playboy X option (which was the one I picked) was pretty well thought out, on the other hand. Sorry but I can’t let Playboy X and Dimitri Rascalov dictate my choices.

I think one of the problems with the PBX and Dwayne choice is it's so obvious what the right one is as naturally most people would choose PBX. As I've said before I only chose Dwayne to see the alternative.

 

IMO it would've been more interesting if the rewards were swapped around. Say for killing PBX all you get is money, but Dwayne doesn't want anything to do with you for killing his protege however for killing Dwayne PBX is the one who offers his backup and as a friend. Not sure about Dwayne's apartment as it's kind of a sh*thole lol. In any case even though PBX is kind of a cocky prick he never really does anything wrong to Niko so to me it would've been interesting to see getting punished for the most obvious choice.

 

The same could've been done in Blood Brothers. Now personally I kill Francis most of the time because he's a low life piece of sh*t, but what if killing him carried real consequences? Like increased noteriety by the cops for the rest of the game if you commit a crime. You'd be thinking "I wish I killed Derrick instead".

^This. Like I really wanted to spare Derrick because I don't like Francis one bit but sparing Derrick has no advantages or consequences while Francis, if spared, helps Niko. It would have been great if Derrick if not killed in Blood Brothers, appeared later for some missions or helped Niko in some way sorta like Francis.

Same about PBX and Dwayne, the choice is very obvious. Killing PBX is best option one has got, not only it feels morally correct but it's advantageous too. So, they should have swapped the roles like you said.

The funny thing is that I killed Dwayne the first time I went through the story, only because I was unaware of the rewards that came after at the time. He felt like a broken wreck anyway and I felt I was putting him out of his misery. Shame there really isn't anything in for it except a pathetic amount of cash, and of course that hypocrite Playboy berating you for offing him. Ever since, I've just gone for Playboy, since his penthouse, Claude's outfit and Dwayne as a friend (including backup) are worth far more. That said, it would have been interesting to see how it would play out if the outcomes had been swapped around, though Playboy is probably too much of an egotistical prick to offer you much. All he really does is see Niko as hired muscle, but not a whole lot else.

 

Also, I used to kill Francis, but I ended up killing Derrick on my latest playthrough, seeing as Packie in GTA V reveals that he dies anyway. Francis may be a corrupt scumbag, but while Gerald is in the joint, Kate ends up dead and Packie f*cks off to LS, there's gotta be one McReary left to take care of their mother, right? The ability to phone Francis and get the heat off you is also useful, at least until you complete the story where most of your contacts are erased.

I always have my set of choices prepared. That is, spare everyone who is possible to be spared (to have all the random encounters), kill Swagboy X and Derrick.

Im the type of person at the time of the game just freshly out. Do each decision and see the repercussions of the our actions. I admit, I would load the game again and chose the "right" decision.

I don't think I've ever opted to kill Cherise or Ivan. For Cherise, even though she was ripping off Dwayne, I kind of felt like she was still an innocent bystander in some ways. She wasn't the one who got Dwayne sent to prison, she was just an idiot who took his money. With Ivan, I think it just makes sense for him to be spared. After all, this occurs very early in the game, and Niko probably still felt like he wasn't ready to start being a killing machine for criminal groups around the city. Plus it's clear that Ivan was set up.

 

By the way, I also never picked Deal except once out of curiosity and without saving. While it gives the more depressing ending, I don't think that's a choice I would have ever made, and on every playthrough I made sure to go for revenge.

I killed Ivan the first time, and I kind of regret doing so seeing as what a POS Vlad really is. Meeting him in his random encounter shows that he really isn't that bad of a guy, for a money hustler at least.

Exactly, Ivan was basically just out trying to make money, and his criminal record in the LCPD database even shows this. It's unknown if he ever physically hurt anyone, he just seems to have been involved in mostly white-collar crimes as the database said.

 

However, when it comes to regretting decisions that we made when playing the game for the first time, I killed Dwayne on my first playthrough. Never again. I don't even know why, I think the money at the time sounded really good, but this was before I realized that it's not like there's much to spend money on in the game anyway. And besides Dwayne's execution actually being a sad scene, Playboy's penthouse is the best safehouse in the game.

Never killed Dwayne, wouldn't do it even if you didn't get the penthouse. Never chose the deal ending, even though I like Kate, having Roman alive ranks higher.

I never spared Clarence, never spared the unnamed Jew in "Late Checkout", and never spared unnamed guy in "Portrait of a Killer" (I think the last one is Dimayev, but i'm not sure)

I also never responded negatively to Dwayne's email after "The Holland Play" just because I think it's cruel to save his life then turn down his approach to be friends

In all my playthroughs I've always done "Bleed Out" before "First Date"  (bros b4 hoes)

I never kill/let Anna's Boyfriend escape in Illyna's random encounter because the phone calls after are quite guilt tripping

And I never bought the package from Perseus in Sara's second random encounter (there's no reason to pay it, you get a $1,000 payout either way, so you're just losing out on $500 by buying it)

Thanks for mentioning these choices too :) I do these choices and the Bleed Out vs. First Date choice just like you.
