the real reason why Tommy can't swim- theory

Recommended Posts

Ahmedmfroezspeed
Posted (edited)

if you didn't know, if Tommy jumps in the water, he drowns

same with both Claude and Toni

but do you really know why all these 3 can't swim

let's begin

first, Claude can't swim because of the oil spill in Liberty City water

and apparently, that made LC's water Toxic

and what proves that there is a news article in liberty tree in GTA 3 talking about this

here's the article

"A government body said the recent oil spill in Liberty City harbor "would cause no lasting damage to Liberty City inhabitants, as long as they don't swim, or drink tap water." The oil spill, which environmental agencies claim is a direct result of the deregulation of the Liberty City Harbor Authority and the closing of the pilot's office, has led to a black film enveloping the harbor and occasional flash fires on the surface. The government official noted "these flash fires are harmless unless you get burnt, and are very reminiscent of the Irish phenomenon of Will-o-the-Wisp. It is a great treat for all Liberty's inhabitants to see such an ancient tradition being played out in our harbor. The oil spill will pose no immediate threat to humans unless they like swimming in oil, while any animal stupid enough to live in that harbor got what it deserved. This spill is nowhere near as serious as the pollution leak of 1988, so I don't know why people are complaining."

and here's the link to the article for yourself

https://gta.fandom.com/wiki/Liberty_Tree/Pollution_"not_bad_for_health"

and from that, we learn that you can't swim because the water is like acid

and not because Claude doesn't know how to swim like Tommy

let's compare them both when drowning

when Claude jumps in the water

he seems to float in it which means he CAN swim

but LC's water is just toxic

and when Tommy jumps in the water

he seems to sink and go deep in it

before losing all his health, and from his drowning animation he seems like he wants to get out of the water

but in Claude's drowning anim , he seems just to get up to get a breath, and not to get out of it

and only people who can swim will do that

plus in Liberty City Stories, which takes place before GTA 3 in 3 years (1998)

Toni can't swim

and both LCS' water and III's water look the same

which means that the pollution happened somewhere between 1992-1994

and in Vice City Stories, which takes place 2 years before vice city (1984)

Vic CAN swim, and every single ped in the game can, but they can't hold it for long

i guess the problem is in Tommy and NOT in Vice City's Water

and for both Claude and Toni, the problem is in Liberty City's water

and not in them both

hope i sounded clear

The Vice City game manual claims it's because of shark attacks.

"Shark attacks off Vice City happen a few
times a year and there are more sharks out
there than you would like to think – best
advice: stay out of the water!"

Apart from the obvious reason that R* simply didn't add the ability to swim in the game I think Tommy literally doesn't know how to swim or he never learnt how to when he was young. A bit like John Marston in RDR1. 

 

Think about it. He grew up in Liberty City which isn't exactly the most inviting place to go swimming (Actually it's funny because before Niko no protagonist even the protagonist in GTA 1 could swim in Liberty City's waters) on top that he went to prison when he was in his 20s so even if he knew how to maybe it's something he lost the touch for after 15 years of not being able to. I know I'm looking waaaayyy too much into it as the sharks explanation provides a credible reason why he's not able to swim, but just my theory.;)

Tommy was a hitman for the Forelli's, Biggest family at the time, I don't think Tommy experinced water/swimming when he was in Liberty City

That makes more sense than the shark-infested water explanation, as he drowns even without them getting close to him.

that's exactly my point

i'm saying that he can't swim because he doesn't know how to swim :)

One day a swim teacher offered Tommy to transmit him his knowledge but Tommy found the lessons too expensive and swore he's too alpha-male and badass to pay for this kind of thing. Having heard this the swim teacher swore to learn Tommy swimming for free on the day Tommy would own companies and make his employees sell ice-cream or fly a plane to distribute ads on his behalf.

I agree. Liberty City is not known for its beaches and with his lifestyle and 15 years in prison, he probably didn't learnt how to swim
