Did anyone else make the "Deal" choice the first time they played the game?

Recommended Posts

I finally finished playing the game for the first time. I knew beforehand that Roman died in one of the endings because I read a bit about it many years ago, but I incorrectly remembered vaguely that "killing the villain" resulted in that ending, Idk why. But I wasn't sure after this time so I tried not to get it spoiled. 

 

I decided to go with the deal ending, by listening to Roman. I also for some reason imagined Niko saying "I should have listened to Roman" if making the other choice resulted in his death. I also assumed that it would be more dangerous to leave Pegorino angry after that mission, rather than going through with it. To be fair money didn't matter much in the game since you can't really buy any cool stuff besides weapons, but I thought maybe you get another apartment or something in the end.

I was surprised when Roman died after the "deal" choice but it was a very interesting ending after that, especially with the next mission where you go after Dimitri finally. I was never so emotionally involved with a videogame until I played GTA IV, but ironically now that I got the "bad" ending I don't feel like playing the game anymore to get 100% completion lol. Well I guess I will eventually. I also never got to play bowling with Roman.
I don't have any save close to the end before the "the price is right" mission but either way I feel like this was the choice *I* would have made anyway, without knowing how the game ends.

 

Everyone seems to have gone with the Revenge choice, judging from the Internet and people I've talked to in real life. Did any of you pick the "Deal" ending? And did you know before making the choice which ending would get Roman killed, or not?

 

Also I'm curious about what other choices you made. Here are mine:
-not kill Ivan (because Vlad didn't deserve to have it his way)

-kill Dwayne (hey he was depressed and wanted to die anyway)

-Kill Francis McReary (since the other brothers seem to care more about Derrick)

-Kill Darco (after so much trouble I guess it would have been "disrespectful" to the other characters if I didn't kill him)

I didn't but I'll forever wish that I didn't know the endings beforehand and that happened to me. Both endings were already the most emotionally affecting game endings I've experienced. Roman dying unexpectedly would've just been crazy! I think I would've cried.

 

I think unfortunately because almost everyone plays it with spoilers for most people it's not so much a choice between deal and revenge and instead more a choice of who you'd prefer to live/die. I think Revenge would be the most popular choice anyway because it's GTA and the more reckless approach is going to be more appealing, but adding in knowing the outcomes must make a VERY high percentage of people pick it.

 

I think both endings are very good though, Revenge is my default just because I want Roman alive but in terms of how well done they are I still can't decide which I prefer as they both have so many good aspects to them. Certainly worth replaying the game and picking the other ending (and doing the same with all the other choices).

I did, the first time I played through the game. I wanted to do it for Roman and he mentioned Vice City which is one of my favorite GTA games.

 

I was surprised to see Roman get shot at the wedding. I thought he was going to live, but he literally.....died.

 

So, I loaded back my save that took me a few missions back and did Revenge and took out Dimitri, the f*cking snake.

Not on my first playthrough, I didn't know anything about the endings but It didn't really make much sense for Niko to make a deal with Dimitri after all the sh*t that he had done to him and Roman. Actually, I did the deal ending only once, just to see what this mission was about. What I liked about it was killing Dimitri on Happiness Island, it felt more satisfying than Pegorino. But having Roman gone isn't worth it in my opinion.

Same here, haha. When I heard him say "Vice City" I knew that was the right choice, to listen to him.

And since Roman already had to deal with the wedding I thought it was worth listening to his character and doing what he wanted.

None of the game was spoiled for me, but I picked Revenge. I just wanted to kill Dimitri after all the crap he did. 

 

It's been a long time since I played so I don't remember all my choices, but I remember letting Darko live. His life seemed like it really sucks so I thought a better punishment for him would be to let him live in misery.

In my very first playthrough I chose Deal solely because Roman was asking me so bad about it and I barely hung out with Kate. I remember my dumb reaction when I saw Roman die, I was like "he's gonna respawn, I'm sure of it, that f*cker can't die" and to my surprise, the LCPD database acknowledged him as dead and I was like "oh damn...". While I was doing A Revenger's Tragedy my power cut off while I was chasing Dimitri on the roof of the casino and my progress didn't save, so next time I chose revenge. My other first playthrough choices:

 

-Killed Ivan (actually I didn't do it but my cousin did, dunno why)

-Spare Cherise (Jayvon was riding away quickly, I didn't want to lose him)

-Spare Dwayne, kill Playboy (I looked up the stats and saw stats that Dwayne would be a friend, so I was like "f*ck Playboy")

-Spare Clarence (kinda made me feel bad for him, never expected him to turn his bitch-ass on me)

-Spare Francis, kill Derrick (it was a pretty random shot here, I hated both of these idiots but after a short rethought I thought Derrick deserves the bullet more just for being a treacherous scumbag)

-Kill the Russian in Portrait of a Killer (pretty random here too, for an odd reason when I was trying to move away from him it didn't register him as spared so I just killed him)

-Spare the Jew in Late Checkout (I just didn't care much and walked away)

-Spare Darko, but only after a good beating. (I wanted him to feel the pain for what he did so I spared him but also heavily injured him.)

Omg yeah it's especially cruel to both Niko and the player how whichever character's advice Niko listens to is the character who ends up killed. And the one who isn't getting killed is annoyed he didn't listen to them (never knowing it would've resulted in their death if he had). He can't win, quite literally.

I knew about the endings beforehand, but I did both just to see which one i'd like more, and I liked both for different reasons.

 

The Deal one was the best in terms of emotions and story. When Kate dies, Niko is pretty mad about it, but when Roman dies part of Niko dies too. I also feel like killing Dimitri in Happiness Island was the best fit ("Welcome to America!"), since he's the main GTA IV villain, while Pegorino gets introduced a bit too late for me to really hate him (even tho he's a cunt anyways). I do prefer Revenge anyways since that's what I think Niko would do.

 

As for other choices:

Spare Ivan - I feel like Niko would just not care about Vlad enough to go against some of his orders.

Spare Cherise - No reason to kill her.

Kill Playboy - I wanted the penthouse, not a cockroach infested appartment in the projects.

Kill Derrick - Francis has the clear wanted level ability, which I tought would be a lot more useful than it is.

Spare Darko in a save, kill him with a rocket launcher in another.

Yeah, because 11 year old me fell for Roman's text about flying to Vice City. I thought that meant Niko was gonna move there and you could free roam there after the final mission. Learned the truth the hard way
