The Journey

What if Niko just went home?

What if instead of there being two options, one being taking the deal and the other being killing Dimitri, Niko just said no and went home? Likely the ending would have a better outcome and neither Roman or Kate would’ve died...

 

Same goes for Blood Brothers, Niko should have called Gerald or Patrick to get one of them to sort things out for Derrick and Francis.

With Pegorino, Dimitri, and the Italian and Russian mafias wanting Niko dead? We'd get Niko's Sorrow.

 

As for Blood Brothers, Gerald gets arrested around the time that mission takes place, Patrick kind of doesn't care about them, and Kate probably wouldn't want to get involved in that.

Don't forget Francis was blackmailing Niko and it was implied that if Niko didn't do as he asked he would've had him arrested and charged with all kinds of serious crimes. So at that point his only options were either to do as he asked or take him out. The other brothers couldn't have stopped it and only would've complicated things.

 

Also even if Niko would be safe back at home (which he wouldn't, according to him one of the reasons he left and joined the merchant navy was so many people after him there, he tells his mother it isn't safe for him there and he can't go back, and it's said that there's very little opportunity for him there outside doing more crime), leaving without doing the deal would piss off both Dimitri and Pegorino so that would put Roman (and possibly anyone else they found out was close to Niko who they could get revenge on in his place) in danger.

Honestly I wasn't even thinking about Niko going back to Serbia, I just meant the Algonquin safehouse or something lol

Oh I see :lol:. I think that would've left him open to an attack from Pegorino, for not doing the deal as he ordered, so he probably would've showed up at the wedding like in the Revenge ending. But worse, Dimitri would still be alive and probably looking for the next opportunity to get him too. Could've even been a double murder at the wedding :D

 

I know at the end of the game it's presented as "Niko can get to kill Dimitri if he wants or Niko can do a deal and get a lot of cash if he wants" so it would seem like he could just go home and do neither. But there was more going on than that, he also has to pick one of those options just to try and keep himself safe (either by eliminating Dimitri so he's no longer a threat and taking his chances with Pegorino, or by doing as Pegorino asked and hoping it worked out with Dimitri and everything could be finished), so opting out wasn't really an option.

A mission or two in a (small) Serbian themed map might have been nice actually. I always prefer if you have a bit of a choice on HOW to finish a mission, e.g. different outcomes.
