Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_1'); })Grand Theft Auto IV is the fourth Numbered Sequel of the Grand Theft Auto series, the first one to appear on a seventh generation console, and the start of a new continuity. It was also, thanks to a famous slip-up by Sony over renewing their previous contract with Rockstar for exclusive publishing rights, the first entry to get a simultaneous Multi-Platform release, as well as the first to have downloadable content. The game certainly takes advantage of the new hardware to the fullest - character models are much more realistically detailed and animated, as is just about everything else.Set in 2008, the story follows Niko Bellic, a veteran of the Yugoslav Wars who turned to crime in an attempt to track down the traitor who got his squad killed. After he's nearly busted in a smuggling operation on the Adriatic Sea, he decides that it's time to move on from criminal activities and sets sail for Liberty City in the United States, where his cousin Roman claims to have become a self-made millionaire.Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_2'); })Unfortunately, Roman's stories turn out to have been highly exaggerated, his "mansion" a dockside slum and his "sports car" a taxi cab. On top of that, his gambling addiction has caused him to take out loans from Albanian Gangsters and The Mafiya, placing him in nigh-inescapable debt. Determined to help out his cousin, and hoping to investigate a lead regarding the traitor, Niko is forced to delve back into his past life of violence to survive.One of the biggest changes from previous installments was IV's ability to take advantage of the Internet connectivity that virtually all consoles of the time had built in. A number of multiplayer game modes are offered, from classic deathmatch and team deathmatch to team-based co-op missions. There's even an open sandbox mode so you can run around Liberty City doing whatever you want, be it with your friends or complete strangers.Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_3'); })Before the game's release, Rockstar signed a $50 million deal with Microsoft to produce two downloadable expansion packs exclusively for the Xbox 360 in 2009. Of course, this was a major flashpoint in the Console Wars. The first of the two was released in March, while the second one was released at the end of October. PS3 and PC owners could rejoice as these previously exclusive expansions came out for their formats in April 2010. If you have tropes for the Episodes from Liberty City (as their compilation release is called), put them on their respective pages, linked here: The Lost and Damned The Ballad of Gay Tony

An Immigrant's Tale: Niko is the first post-3D series protagonist to not be an American citizen; he is instead an illegal immigrant from Serbia. This viewpoint allows the game to better show its more cynical take on The American Dream, and its Deconstruction of Damn, It Feels Good to Be a Gangster!.

No Celebrities Were Harmed
 Grand Theft Auto IV (Video Game) / int_1282bf4f
comment
No Celebrities Were Harmed: Gubernatorial candidate Michael Graves is a fairly obvious Expy of Fred Thompson - the line about his "many bit parts on television shows" is a dead giveaway. Radio talk show host Richard Bastion is an obvious Rush Limbaugh parody, and Just or Unjust's Judge Grady is based off of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas. Tom Goldberg, the lawyer Francis McReary orders Niko to assassinate is roughly based off Jack Thompson, a lawyer and anti-violent video game activist. Goldberg even says Thompson's famous quote: "Guns don't kill people, video games do." when he's threatened by Niko. The Statue of Happiness's face bears a striking to Hillary Clinton, ironically as instead of a torch the statue is holding up a steaming hot beverage meant to reference a particular controversy of the GTA series which Hillary was an activist against.

Tom Goldberg. A very obviously over the top Greedy Jew stereotype who performs charity solely for his reputation and is strongly implied to be a molester of disadvantaged young boys. Niko forges a resume to get an interview with him and then kills him.

Drunk Driver
 Grand Theft Auto IV (Video Game) / int_1392fbe7
comment
Drunk Driver: The drinking mini-game usually results in this. Well, not always the "driver" part, if you prefer, maybe due to your conscience, or maybe because you gain one wanted level when you pass by any police unit while driving drunk. Or maybe because it's really hard to drive drunk, because the car keeps veering from side to side on a straight line, and even with this being a video game you crash so much that you're likely to kill yourself or your companion. The game doesn't help by making walking (and, therefore, getting into a hailed taxi cab) virtually impossible. "Pisswasser! This is beer! Drive drunk off a pier!"

Instant-Win Condition: Sometimes averted, such as when you kill a key NPC during a mission, then have to evade the cops. Sometimes played straight, such as killing a guy before they get too far away in a vehicle, thereby avoiding the long chase sequence you'd otherwise have to do.

 Grand Theft Auto IV (Video Game) / int_14beeefd
comment
Darker and Edgier: May seem hard to do, but IV was a definite shift away from the more lighthearted predecessors; the Crapsack World goes from being Played for Laughs to Played for Drama. Even on the radio, the humor is much more toned down, and the actual missions themselves seem to involve almost no laughing moments. Even the radio satire is a lot less funny and more outright stating what is wrong with America. It seems like Rockstar just picked targets and let 'em have it with both barrels. And to add an insult, you lose one of the important supporting characters before the finale starts, making IV the darkest game in the entire series.

Tempting Fate: On the way to the Bank of Libery during the "Three Leaf Clover" mission, Packie and Derrick get into an argument, leading Niko to tell them, "If you guys can stop arguing for a few minutes then I think we might be okay." Of course, during the heist, Packie and Derrick argue again, distracting them from their crowd control and allowing Eugene to kill Michael.

comment
One of the Dummied Out vehicles from The Ballad Of Gay Tony, the "policew" also counts, it appears to be a Police Interceptor that was crashed, then dumped in the ocean, and fished out several years later. It is somehow still drivable, though it probably isn't supposed to be (it is a beta vehicle after all), it was probably only intended for use in a cut scene.

PowerUpLetDown
 Grand Theft Auto IV (Video Game) / int_18683fc2
comment
Power-Up Letdown: Some of the abilities unlocked by keeping Relationship Values up with friends and girlfriends come off as this. Packie's car bomb is rarely useful outside of a few missions that allow you an open window to approach your target's car instead of the usual obligatory Chase Scene. Even more egregious is Alex's ability to give you a discount on the clothes you buy, especially when compared to other girlfriends' abilities like Carmen giving you medical advice or Kiki clearing your Wanted Meter. Also, some may view the reward for 100% Completion, which is simply removing the maximum limit on ammo capacity as more than a bit of a letdown. Not that it isn't useful, but considering that it's a reward for completing the game, it isn't much. Also, saving and reloading the game causes all the ammo you collected over the original limit to disappear. On the other hand, Dwayne's ability to provide two gunmen as backup, although not always allowed by missions, is an undeniable life-safer on numerous occasions where Niko has to face off against multiple targets.

There are 2 missions where this does not apply: A Revenger's Tragedy and Out Of Commission. Once you get to Dimitri/Pegorino's hideout to begin the shootout, if you fail the mission, when you agree to the text message asking if you want to redo the mission, you don't start from the beginning of the mission. You skip the car chase and end up in the cut scene where Niko and Jacob (and Roman in Commission) drive down the embankment toward the hideout. Either one of these two could be the game's final mission.

End of an Age: It's made quite clear that the glory days of gangsters are a thing of the past. Most of Niko's employers end up dead or in prison, Packie and Gerald McReary long for decades past when their family ruled the roost, and the law's coming down hard on the whole business. As Michelle/Karen puts it, "Feds are all over it. Crime is done."

Poor Communication Kills: In the cutscene that kicks off the Revenge mission/ending, where Pegorino tells Niko about the upcoming deal with Dimitri, Niko never bothers to explain to Pegorino the dangers of doing business with Dimitri beyond an off-hand remark that "he and I have history." That oversight leads to a chain of events that culminates in Kate getting killed.

It also does its logical counterpart, the Automatic Continue Game; if save-files are found, it will automatically load the latest one. This can get highly annoying if you have multiple different saves and will always have to endure an extra Loading Screen before being allowed to choose which one you actually wanted to load.

Scripted Event: Several car chases you have to do are scripted to play out the exact same way every time. This means that if a target you are chasing isn't supposed to be killed just yet, their car will be immune to bullets and any car that they smash into will go flying while the chaser's car is perfectly fine since the scripted event isn't finished (this can look silly if the target is driving a sports car and they make an SUV flip over). The enemy driver will also have superior handling and will always stay ahead of you no matter how fast you are going until the game gives the all clear to kill the target. Likewise, other drivers that are a part of the scene will be scripted to drive a certain way every single time and they are movable brick walls, which means they can't get damaged or pushed, but you crashing into them can seriously wreck your car.

Crapsack World: Liberty City. Grand Theft Auto IV gives us a world where crime is rampant, and unlike previous games, most of the negative aspects of the Crapsack World (or Crapsack City) are Played for Drama. It is a city filled with corrupt politicians, crooked cops, violent mobsters, drug traffickers, human traffickers, backstabbing criminals and maniacs.

I Fought the Law and the Law Won: While the police in previous GTA games weren't difficult to deal with unless you were deliberately trying to piss them off, the cops in this installment are very aggressive from the get go. You are more likely to be spotted by cops whenever you do any sort of crime in the open because there are more cops walking around and driving compared to the previous games. When trying to elude the police, even if you escape the hot zone, the cops will spawn back up units in your direct path so that they can find you again and resume the chase. Cops will even shoot you on a one-star wanted level.

Funny Background Event: More than any previous GTA game, the city depicted is alive with computer controlled NPCs randomly going about their business. If you're not doing anything, stand in a park or on a street corner and you'll see them engaging in realistic-to-bizarre behavior. You might see a hooker hit up a john, two guys get into a fistfight, a cop chasing a perp, people smoking and throwing litter out of cars, jogging, or practicing tai chi on the beach.

While serving as the game's high-level law enforcement response, it is also mentioned that they control customs and immigration matters, and were responsible for the city-wide lockdown early in the story, hinting at their political power.

Awesome, but Impractical: The counter-finishes. In a fist/melee fight, they look really cool and kill a guy at half his health instantly, but are fairly difficult to pull off and depend largely on timing. Pulling out a gun (which can be obtained fairly easily) is a much easier and effective tactic.

The Big Rotten Apple: The Continuity Reboot still hasn't saved Liberty City from being a Vice City. This aspect has been toned down compared to the III-continuity, since IV translates New York City after the Giuliani era, though that means the game also takes some vicious stabs at the gentrification the city's undergone since then.

Scary Black Man: The majority of black men Niko meets are decidedly non-scary (consisting of a Rastafarian pot dealer, a self-absorbed rapper, and a rich and somewhat weaselly player/Playboy), but Ving Rhames ringer Dwayne Forge is quietly terrifying when he's not in the grips of depression. Lil' Jacob's friend Badman might also qualify, due to being clearly unstable and nearly impossible to understand, especially when he's agitated (which is often). He even "introduces" himself by threatening Niko with a box cutter.

The Unintelligible: Little Jacob at first, although you get used to his accent as time goes on. His friend Badman is even worse - even with subtitles he's difficult to understand, and Jacob has to actually translate for him even though he's technically speaking English. However, even if you get used to his accent, Jacob remains unintelligible in a number of key sequences, including, amazingly one of the finale missions in which Jacob actually explains key plot points but without subtitles there's no way to tell what he's talking about. Badman is so difficult to understand partially because even though individual words are coherent, most of his speech in game is repetitive, angry, paranoid ramblings about rival gangs. This is also because Little Jacob and Badman are speaking completely separate languages. Little Jacob speaks Rastafarian English, while Badman is speaking Jamaican Patois. While both dialects of English, Little Jacob's dialect is a hell of a lot closer to anything you're likely to actually comprehend. And of course, poor Niko, whose grasp of English is good, but imperfect, has it worse. He doesn't get to see the subtitles.

Not Worth Killing: Played straight when the cutscene first introduces Florian/Bernie. Niko seems to take pity on him instead, and later on befriends him, more or less. Can be played straight with some other NPC's, such as Dwayne's ex, or Ivan in one of the early missions. And later with Darko Brevic, the man who Niko finds out was the real culprit in selling out and getting many of their friends executed. However, you can also kill him should you choose so.

On a somewhat related note; a simple if somewhat tedious way to resolve the rarity issue of the Comet is to do Stevie's text message car retrievals to the point at which he requests a Comet and (assuming you're not concerned with getting the 'Got The Message' achievement) just leaving it on that request as you can drive the Comet back to your safehouse parking space to save while another will respawn in the same place indefinitely until you've taken it to his garage.

Game-Breaking Bug
 Grand Theft Auto IV (Video Game) / int_33ca811a
comment
Game-Breaking Bug: Both finale missions use to suffer from one each: "A Revenger's Tragedy" — after a very long series of chases and shootouts, Niko will automatically jump and grab hold of an enemy helicopter; the helicopter will shake Niko off, and he will land in the water near a boat. In theory. Unfortunately, the fall will occasionally kill Niko, rendering the mission impossible to complete. Later in the chase, Niko will obtain a second helicopter, but once again a bug will result in the helicopter randomly exploding, killing Niko. Neither of these have anything to do with how the player conducts the mission. "Out of Commission" — after a chase between Pegorino in a boat and Niko on a motorcycle, Niko will jump off a ramp and grab hold of an annihilator helicopter flown by Jacob and Roman. However, when trying to make him climb on board, hitting the 'climb' button instead causes the camera angle to change views. So Niko eventually falls off and the mission fails.

Sliding Scale of Idealism vs. Cynicism
 Grand Theft Auto IV (Video Game) / int_372bc105
comment
Sliding Scale of Idealism vs. Cynicism: The story is ultimately a commentary on the concept of The American Dream. Niko repeatedly points out the corruption in Liberty City and how it contrasts with the idealistic image America usually protrays itself as. But at the same there is an underlying message about how people can get a new life in America and that, while people in America can fail, they can also achieve greater individual success than in other countries, which Niko grudgingly comes to accept, making the whole thing seem optimistic overall. Then the Downer Ending happens and the game goes crashing into the cynical side.

Foreign Cuss Word: Having a foreigner as a protagonist, Niko swears in Serbian at certain points during the story. Albanian and Russian gangsters do it too during combat and its possible to bump into Brazilian civilians that will insult you in Portuguese if you bump into them.

Boring, but Practical
 Grand Theft Auto IV (Video Game) / int_39b8d3d6
comment
Boring, but Practical: One of the most efficient ways of surviving a shootout with the cops is finding a large, sturdy piece of cover (with no way around it except through you, of course) and blindfiring from behind it with an SMG, Assault Rifle, or Carbine Rifle. The game then starts to resemble an improbably easy shooting gallery, but the tactic gets the job done. Both pistols lack the rate of fire, power, range, or ammo capacity other guns have, but they make up for it with pinpoint accuracy and the largest default ammo pool out of all your weapons. The Combat Pistol veers into Simple, yet Awesome territory, because it uses the same ammo pool as the stock pistol, but deals enough damage to match higher-tier weapons.

Kiki Jenkins is otherwise a very down-to-earth woman, but she is jealous to the point of randomly accusing Niko of cheating on her, and can even randomly call and ask if he's being faithful. If Niko is dating someone else, she can be seen stalking Niko during dates and his car may be damaged if the date takes him away from it. She can also remove a certain amount of wanted stars if called.

 Grand Theft Auto IV (Video Game) / int_3b39c254
comment
Dystopia: They drove the point as high as the then-current situation would allow it. Think about it. This game portrays how America would be if they had taken the PATRIOT Act too seriously: Police officers are allowed to draw a weapon on someone for hitting another person, refusing to pay highway toll, flank roadblocks or trespassing on government property (hell, even shoot them if they feel like it, which would be the case at most times). As mentioned in the police recruitment trailer, the police are allowed to shoot into crowds of peaceful protesters for strolling outside the "Free Speech Zone" (already the fact that "Free Speech Zones" exist is a slap in the face). Furthermore, they are protected by law for - as well as are totally fine with the fact of - running over bystanders to catch even one perpetrator. The police shut down a city the size of New York by erecting road blocks on every major water crossing, having little more motivation than "fucking terrorists". Terrorists (whether they exist or not) are the highest priority for the police. And not, say, heavily-armed bank robbers and sociopaths. Any personality who isn't Republican, right-wing, capitalist, straight, Francophobic, xenophobic, an American citizen, an American supremacist (or at least a white supremacist) or a gun owner is basically declared anything along the lines of "Dirty Commies" in public.

Bad Boss: Well and truly personified by Mikhail Faustin, the game's leading figure in the Russian Mob, who is completely batshit insane. He shoots his own men for no particular reason, orders hits left and right on the merest of whims, and explodes at everyone around him, including long-time friends and family. On the other hand, Dimitri himself is not even better when he betrays Niko Bellic.

comment
Curb-Stomp Battle: If you are properly armed, and are prepared for it, most gunfights in the game can qualify as this from Niko's perspective. In particular, however, the "random encounter" fights with Eddie Low and Clarence are curb stomps for Niko if he arrives armed with a half-decent gun, especially as Eddie attacks Niko with a knife. Interestingly, if you take the knife away from Eddie, he will run away, so you have to chase him and kill him to get the 100%.

Every Car Is a Pinto: Subverted. If you smash up your car too much in this game, it'll simply stop running, though it may catch fire and explode on occasion. This can happen if you hit into another cars rear at a high speed - The cars rear will light up in flames and the driver will come out in flames. Most of the time they'll survive, but the car wont.

Niko also sees Roman as this on occasion due to his penchant for continually getting into trouble forcing Niko to bail him out. Niko is seen as this by numerous characters to his great sorrow at the end.

The Irish Mob: Packie, Derrick, and Gerry McReary, as well as their associate Michael Keane are gangsters from a family past its glory days. Their other brother Francis is the LCPD's deputy police commissioner, and distances himself from them to preserve his reputation. Their youngest, Kate turns a blind eye to all of them, and busies herself by taking care of their aging mother, and going out with Niko.

Bittersweet Ending: The penultimate mission has you choose between overseeing a heroin deal with Dimitri for Pegorino or using the opportunity to kill Dimitri. If you take the former, Kate dumps you and Dimitri screws you over during the deal (though you still get the money if you succeed), then tries to kill Niko at Roman's wedding. Unfortunately, Roman is killed instead, though Kate does reconcile with Niko after. Take the latter, then Roman survives, but Pegorino kills Kate while trying to kill Niko at Roman's wedding. Either way, the game cannot be completed with everyone Niko supposedly cares about surviving.

Keeping Secrets Sucks: Packie and Kate openly lament the death of one of their brothers either Francis or Derrick, all the while being kept ignorant of the fact that Niko is the one who killed him. This bites hard considering you end up playing The Confidant to both of them during Friendship Activities/Dates, and they talk at length about their relationship with him.

Heck, the "Yankee" truck is only available in "beater" form, (though the degree of wear and decay varies; the "Liberty State Delivery" variant is in relatively decent shape, aside from the graffiti and some mild oxidization, while the "Sprunk" variant wouldn't look too out of place in a game like Fallout 3). The Lost and Damned adds a new open-bed variant of the "Yankee" that's in even worse shape. The body work is permanently dented, it appears to have been painted with house paint which wasn't allowed to dry properly, the mirrors are falling off, the wheels are beginning to rust, and the bed appears to be taken from a much older vehicle, though it ''is'' faster than the normal Yankee due to the cargo box being replaced with a much lighter open bed.

Which is rather hypocritical by Roman as basically 3/4s of the plot revolves around Niko having to move Hell and Earth for gangsters all over town because of Roman's gambling problem. If Niko hadn't showed up, Roman would have lost all his property anyway and possibly ended up Sleeping With The Fishes.

Most of the beater variants perform poorly compared to their regular versions, however there are three exceptions: the Gang Burrito, Roman's Taxi, and the open-bed Yankee, all of which are vastly superior performance-wise to their better maintained counterparts.

Alternate Continuity

comment
Alternate Continuity: Liberty City looks nothing like it did in Grand Theft Auto III and none of the events of the previous three games are mentioned, but GTA Radio and the accompanying internet and TV shows make numerous references to the popular culture in the previous three games. And some of the in-game TV stations actually incorporate locations and even animation from previous games. Dialogue references to GTA IV-era versions of GTA III-era locations such as San Andreas, Los Santos, San Fierro, Las Venturas and Vice City are also frequent. At least on the subject of appearance, this can be considered justified, at least on the meta level. Not only were there six and a half years between the two games, but Grand Theft Auto III was released only a month after 9/11, which caused Rockstar to make last minute design changes to further distance itself from New York City. In fact, pre-release screenshots even showed Liberty City squad cars, with livery in the style of NYPD cars at the time.

 Grand Theft Auto IV (Video Game) / int_480c69ba
comment
Infinity -1 Sword: The Turismo is the second fastest car in the game, has great handling, has a rear engine making it extremely crash resistant and is easy to get for a sports car whereas the fastest car in the game (The Comet) is so rare it becomes Too Awesome to Use. There is even a spot next to Niko's safehouse in Algonquin where 4 of these are guaranteed to spawn for your storage. When allowed to use your own car for a mission you will find it more than enough for chasing down enemies and escaping the cops. It's also based on the Ferrari 360 as an added bonus. On a somewhat related note; a simple if somewhat tedious way to resolve the rarity issue of the Comet is to do Stevie's text message car retrievals to the point at which he requests a Comet and (assuming you're not concerned with getting the 'Got The Message' achievement) just leaving it on that request as you can drive the Comet back to your safehouse parking space to save while another will respawn in the same place indefinitely until you've taken it to his garage.

Scenery Porn: Liberty City is simply gorgeous to look at, with incredible attention to detail, even in areas where missions would never take you. This is one game where spending time just looking around (preferably on foot) is a worthwhile pastime. Some of the most remarkable areas to view include Happiness Island, the observation level of the Rotterdam Tower, and the game's version of Times Square, which is very reminiscent of the real place (do not complete playing this game without visiting Star Junction at night during good weather and checking out all the signs). It looks even better in the DLC The Ballad of Gay Tony due to that game's richer color palette. Compare the observation deck of the Rotterdam Tower in the DLC with the rather drab version in the main game. Rockstar Games even went so far as to provide a feature to the GTA IV website, allowing people to explore the city in the same style as Google Street View.

There are no Check Points during missions, regardless of mission length. If you fail the mission, you have to start over from the beginning. This includes driving to the mission's start point. Normally, you can use a taxi to spare yourself the drive, but there are some missions where you are required to drive to the mission location, such as "Catch The Wave."

Schizophrenic Difficulty
 Grand Theft Auto IV (Video Game) / int_529ade8d
comment
Schizophrenic Difficulty: The missions vary wildly in difficulty, with challenging ones being followed by others that are mind-numbingly easy and vice versa. For example, the level "Holland Nights", wildly agreed to be pretty tough on a first playthrough, forces you to take on waves of thugs as you pursuit the leader through a building and only concludes once the player evades the police with a Three Star Wanted Level. The mission immediately after, "Lure", only requires the player to snipe a single target.

Book-Ends: The game begins with Niko getting off a boat named "Platypus". If you choose the 'revenge' path, in a mission called A Dish Served Cold, you revisit that boat, now being used as part of a drug deal that Dimitri and Pegorino have set up. At the end of "A Revenger's Tragedy", Niko greets Dimitri with same phrase Roman used when he first arrived in Liberty City. "Welcome to America."

It also criticizes the idea of the Roaring Rampageof Revenge, which was Claude's main goal in the original 3D game. While Claude gets his revenge and saves the girl (maybe), for Nico his constant revenges leave him either with only more trouble... or nothing at all.

Gang Up on the Human
 Grand Theft Auto IV (Video Game) / int_5ade9ace
comment
Gang Up on the Human: Used against the player with alarming regularity. Sometimes it's justified, such as when you're robbing a bank, or recklessly running over/shooting random civilians, other times its ridiculous. It seems whenever an NPC commits a crime, the cops are really slow to stop them, and hilariously can't seem to catch up to criminals fleeing on foot. But the instant you lightly bump into that officer's car, they begin the manhunt, and several other cops within the vicinity who apparently have nothing better to do or no other crimes to stop will drop what they're doing to bring you to justice.

The Computer Is a Cheating Bastard
 Grand Theft Auto IV (Video Game) / int_6041e4f4
comment
The Computer Is a Cheating Bastard: Implemented very subtly in the interest of Gameplay and Story Segregation. If you are supposed to kill someone who flees in a car, but they will lead you somewhere that will advance the plot, the game will always keep them slightly out of your reach during the chase. You can shoot at them all you want, they'll never take any damage. An obvious example of this is chasing Ivan early in the game. Niko is trying to kill him, but you won't be able to during the chase because the encounter after he crashes serves as the melee disarming tutorial. Enemy characters will also have near pin point accuracy when it comes to shooting you through the windows while you're inside a car, preventing you from using the car as a shield.

 Grand Theft Auto IV (Video Game) / int_6320eced

Gameplay and Story Segregation: At no point in the game are you ever required to date Kate. They will acknowledge that she doesn't know Niko that well while they're driving to Roman's wedding but it doesn't change the gravity to which her possible death is treated. In "Bleed Out" if you choose to throw a loan shark out of a window and into the harbor, Niko will express dismay at having killed a man, despite promising to himself to leave his life of crime behind. Pay no attention to the fact that you as a player may have flattened numerous pedestrians up to that point, or that the other two loan sharks you fought previously might in fact be dead too (the game's stats certainly count them as such). In "Buoys Ahoy", Niko goes off on a rant about how messed up his life in Liberty City has been, mentioning how he has to make some measly money off his dirty work just to survive only for his cousin to waste it all in his gambling addiction. Never mind that by this point this mission takes place very late in the game, Niko has probably amassed quite a fortune with the rewards from all missions all his jobs including the heist from "Three Leaf Clover", there is no way for Roman to take Niko's money for himself - even though he could easily pay off his debts with it. Niko makes a point of not drinking alcohol until his main "mission" (finding and killing the man who betrayed his squad) is complete. Of course, this only applies to cutscenes, as nothing will stop Niko from getting absolutely hammered with friends every other day.

Interface Screw: Whenever you get drunk. It's so extreme that it's an effort to make Niko take even a single step forward without falling over. To make matters worse, try driving in this state (that is, if you don't mind getting a wanted level for this — and if you think driving is hard, try evasive driving). The game encourages you to hail a taxi in this circumstance, but that's enough of a challenge in itself, and you're just as likely to end up under the cab as inside it.

Aluminum Christmas Trees: In the police database, there is a woman named Mary Valvona listed as the head of the Pavano crime family. Conventional wisdom would dictate that the Mafia would never let a woman into the organization, let alone allow her to become the boss of one of the Five Families. Yet this news article proves otherwise. Though it may be worth noting that the Italian mafia and the American mafia are two seperate organizations, and the American mafia probably wouldn't allow a woman to be in charge of one of the families.

Wide Open Sandbox: For the most part. Although IV has been criticized for having things like friends constantly phoning you for dates, and there are numerous missions that are automatically triggered by phone calls when you want to do them yet or not, for the most part Niko is free to roam the city, take in shows, go bowling, get lap dances, have sex with hookers, and go hunting pigeons, at his leisure. Although you still can't avoid mandatory mission phone calls, the game provides a simple workaround regarding outing requests from friends (simply accept the outing, then call back immediately and cancel the plans without penalty). Or better yet, just put the phone in sleep mode if you just want to roam the city for a while. Unless you use the phone again, you'll be able to roam about without your friends calling you all the time.

Guide Dang It!
 Grand Theft Auto IV (Video Game) / int_6ec989d8
comment
Guide Dang It!: As with past GTA games, achieving full completion of the game (and its rather lame reward) involves completing a number of side-missions and "collectable pick-ups" that are virtually impossible to complete without some sort of map or guide. This includes the locating and shooting of 200 pigeons (aka flying rats), and also locating a number of so-called "random encounters" what involve tracking down individuals located across the map and located only by icons that appear on the radar when the player is nearby (and one, Gracie, doesn't even get an icon and relies on the player deciding to walk - not drive - down a certain street at a certain time). The game slightly averts this by providing maps indicating locations of the pigeons and random encounters on a fictional website included as part of the in-game Internet. However, the website only shows up in an e-mail after you complete the main storyline, and because it's a spam email most players are likely to delete it unless they know beforehand what it is. And the maps provided aren't 100% complete, either. The DLC's rectify the "random encounter" issue by making the icons easier to see on the map and you don't need to be on top of them, either. In the game, Niko can "date" five different women. While four of them can be found through either missions or clues given within gameplay, the fifth (Alex Chilton) is only found by those who spend the time to explore the in-game Internet, including the Craiglist parody Craplist and happen to find (hidden among many messages) a posting by her that invites response - or who learn of her existence through walkthroughs and guides.

Taken Up to Eleven with NOOSE's service vehicles, which are modified versions of the Police Cruiser, Patriot, and Securicar, respectively. All three are outfitted with LED-lightbars, grilles, and high-profile tires that make them look more menacing than their regular counterparts. The first two are transformed into Lightning Bruisers and the third is made even more of a Stone Wall. They are rare to the point of not spawning anywhere on map the unless you are wanted by the authorities and difficult to get for obvious reasons.

Mugging the Monster: Serial Killer Eddie Low, the terror of Liberty City (body count: a dozen or so) attacks Niko Bellic, freelancer "problem solver" (body count: a couple hundred at minimum). This action results in Eddie's swift death. Sometimes used if you crash into a random civilian's car, and they're stupid enough to run to your car, pull you out, and then attack you. Shooting at them will usually cause them to flee, but some civilians may be armed and will fire back at you. Of course, they're still no match for you.

 Grand Theft Auto IV (Video Game) / int_7301ae04
comment
Serial Killer: Eddie Low. Somewhat parodied in that, despite the serial killer plotline taking up a huge chunk of the game's backstory and in-game news, it actually has no relevance to the main plot other than a couple of short, optional encounters, and Eddie's handful of murders pale in comparison to the hundreds of (relatively) unreported gangland killings caused by Niko alone (the strip club massacre, anyone?).

Gameplay Ally Immortality: If a major character is killed, they are Only Mostly Dead and will later call Niko from the hospital. Rumor has it that minor girlfriends can be perma-killed, as in San Andreas (may be due to a glitch).

comment
Put on a Bus: Appears to happen to Badman, who is introduced as a somewhat major character, and also appears as a "random encounter" but vanishes from the narrative early on. During a friendship outing Little Jacob appears to make some reference to what happened to Badman, but his accent is so unintelligible, it's hard to tell. Real Badman does appear in Roman's wedding, alongside Little Jacob, so they were still on good terms towards the end of the game. Also happens to Michelle/Karen, who vanishes from the story soon after the United Liberty Paper mission strand begins.

Mad Libs Dialogue: The police scanner constructs sentences from single words, but also has complete pre-scripted speech. Gaps between words are easily dismissed due to nature of radio. There is also a variety of phrases to make chatter sound less mechanical (and plenty of sentences not used for the player, such as running a red light.)

Also, some may view the reward for 100% Completion, which is simply removing the maximum limit on ammo capacity as more than a bit of a letdown. Not that it isn't useful, but considering that it's a reward for completing the game, it isn't much. Also, saving and reloading the game causes all the ammo you collected over the original limit to disappear.

Arms Dealer: Unlike the previous games in the series, where the guns came from perfectly legal firearm stores, all the weapon shops in this game are underground back-alley operations due to LC's Mayor having enacted strict gun control laws. This is also what Little Jacob does for a living — if he likes Niko enough, he'll even deliver a car full of weapons to the player's location on demand (for a price, but a lower one than the dealers).

Narrative Filigree: Setting aside the fact that this is a sandbox game, and thus is expected to have such material, the aforementioned trope is the (possibly only) appeal of the much-maligned friend activities/dates. Over the course of said activities/dates, Niko will engage in (often humorous) conversation with his friends/girlfriends, fleshing out not just the world and their characterizations, but his own as well.

Woobie, Destroyer of Worlds: Niko. As a child, Niko aspired to become an astronaut. But an abusive father, combined with being drafted as a Child Soldier during the Yugoslav Wars (and feeling regretful for the atrocities he either witnessed or committed), and witnessing a personal betrayal that saw several of his childhood friends (and fellow platoon mates) gunned down all drove him into becoming cynical. As Niko established, fighting in The Yugoslav Wars will erode a person's humanity.

Fantasy Helmet Enforcement: Wait around a second after getting on a motorcycle, and Niko will don a helmet. Niko may be a mass-murdering thug, but at least he obeys helmet laws! If you're in a hurry, you can simply jump on the bike and go- you have to be stationary for a while for Niko to don his helmet. If you fall off the bike though, damage taken is slightly higher.

Unfortunately, some of these modifications are purely cosmetic. Especially disappointing are the Spanish Lords' fleet of cars, which is composed of the Cavalcade and the Primo. The former is already an excellent SUV, but its only modifications are a custom paint job with gold trim and a sound system in the trunk. The latter is a terrible outdated sedan, now equipped with a useless spoiler and body kit.

Deconstructed Trope: As a character, Niko criticizes the idea behind the series' first 3D protagonist, Claude. The game points out that all you'd get if you were a lone, anonymous hitman working for but unaffiliated to any part of the criminal underworld in a place like Liberty City is a whole load of suffering and the deaths of your loved ones. In so doing, the game manages to subvert Damn, It Feels Good to Be a Gangster!. It also criticizes the idea of the Roaring Rampageof Revenge, which was Claude's main goal in the original 3D game. While Claude gets his revenge and saves the girl (maybe), for Nico his constant revenges leave him either with only more trouble... or nothing at all.

Evil Pays Better: Subverted by the choice between killing Playboy X or Dwayne Forge. If you kill Playboy X, you get his apartment, Dwayne as one of your friends (whose special ability is to send out some of his fellow gang members to help you), and a bonus outfit that is a Shout-Out to III, while killing Dwayne instead only gets you money. Also, sparing the lives of some people will earn you some bonus missions later on. Played straight in the choice between killing Francis or Derrick, where killing Derrick will earn you a special ability with Francis that will allow you to cancel your wanted level. When it comes to killing Francis or Derrick, you can phone Francis before shooting anyone. Niko will tell Francis he's having second thoughts and Francis will offer Niko a bonus/raise (which ends up being $20,000) to kill Derrick.

Overshadowed by Awesome: Discounting Michelle, the 3 girlfriends Niko can meet all overshadow Kate McReary, who the writers push as Niko's main Love Interest. Carmen Ortiz is a cute, hispanic bisexual nymphomaniac who also can heal non-gunshot wounds over the phone if your relationship is high enough. Kiki Jenkins is otherwise a very down-to-earth woman, but she is jealous to the point of randomly accusing Niko of cheating on her, and can even randomly call and ask if he's being faithful. If Niko is dating someone else, she can be seen stalking Niko during dates and his car may be damaged if the date takes him away from it. She can also remove a certain amount of wanted stars if called. Alex Chilton is a stereotypical Rich Bitch, who keeps a blog where she writes about the dates Niko takes her on. She can also give him a temporary 50% discount on all clothing stores if the relationship is high enough.

Cuckold: Roman's girlfriend is discovered by his cousin to have been sleeping with a small-time gangster in exchange for protecting Roman. Roman is clearly upset by the revelation, but he relents in order to avoid making his situation worse. Niko, however, is horrified by his cousin's failure to act and flat out kills the gangster for what he did. Niko is revealed to be one as well in relation to Mila, his crush and the alleged town bicycle of his childhood village, according to dialogue with Roman during friend activities. Niko is also blatantly stated by both Alex and Carmen to have been cucked during the time that he had been dating the two of them. He's much less bothered, if bothered at all, by these revelations than he is over Mila. There is also Jeff, one of the random people you meet, who believes firmly that his wife is seeing someone else. She is, but only as a friend; he refuses to believe this and stabs her to death. He's even called "Jeff the Cuckold" in the credits.

Artificial Stupidity
 Grand Theft Auto IV (Video Game) / int_940a5958
comment
Artificial Stupidity: AI drivers in general are VERY bad at avoiding crashes. This is most telling on bridges where multi-car pileups are common because several cars decided to merge into the same lane at once. This may or may not be intentional. Pedestrians aren't much better, often rolling in the wrong direction to dodge your car and ending up directly under your wheels. In previous games, pedestrians would generally only scream if they witnessed something happen in front of them or were directly attacked. In GTA IV, all you need to do is speed along the road, and you're sure to hear a pedestrian screaming at the top of their lungs.

Not So Different: When Niko confronts Darko and asks him why he killed their army unit for only $1,000, Darko turns the tables and asks Niko how much he charges to kill someone. (Early in the game? $500. Though that was per person.) Darko's physical appearance also resembles that of Niko. It's actually quite creepy. And the Name: Darko Brevic, Nico Bellic. Niko essentially says this to Dwayne when they first meet, telling him "You remind me of me." Seems to be a running theme in the game: Francis McReary says, "I see a lot of myself in you," while his brother Derrick mumbles, "We're the same…"

Hide Your Children

Hide Your Children: Potentially lampshaded by a red baby carriage found in the city. That baby carriage has been in every Rockstar game since Manhunt. There are also a number of children's playgrounds visible around the city, as well as a skateboard park, but again, no kids. There are also no buildings in Liberty City or Alderney that are identifiable as elementary or high schools. Given the "kill anyone you want" nature of the game, and in light of things like the Colombine and Sandy Hook shootings, the absence of kids is most likely a major saving grace for the game, though the existence of the playgrounds is a bit eerie. There's also a yard full of broken down school buses near the Memory Lanes at Firefly Island. There are no drivable school buses however.

Both pistols lack the rate of fire, power, range, or ammo capacity other guns have, but they make up for it with pinpoint accuracy and the largest default ammo pool out of all your weapons. The Combat Pistol veers into Simple, yet Awesome territory, because it uses the same ammo pool as the stock pistol, but deals enough damage to match higher-tier weapons.

Made of Iron: Due to the more accurate physics of the game, Niko's ability to walk away from some things is pretty remarkable (like being hurled through the windshield in a crash, with the only thing stopping him being wrapped around the post of a gas station awning). In fact, there's very little that will instantly kill a player character in this game. Pretty much the only things that cause instant death are unimpeded drops from multiple stories, sudden changes of direction (like getting hit by a car or train), having something heavy land on you, point-blank explosions, getting shot in the head, and touching the rotors of a moving helicopter.

Double Consciousness: The missions that present a Moral Dilemma and even some instances of Gameplay and Story Segregation meditate on how this trope affects immigrants. Niko is torn between two conflicting worldviews, both with their own virtues and vices. One embodies his native Serbia; he is loyal to his family, but is also trapped in a wartime mindset. The other embodies his immigrancy; he seeks wealth and a new life in America, but believes he can only attain them through crime. Niko doesn't explicitly comment on this, so it's up to the player to decide which one to indulge.

Mood Whiplash: Niko Bellic is the most serious and tragic character in the series so far. At the same time the game is still full of juvenile humor which can be considered out-of-place for a game with a storyline this serious. Niko reminiscing about the horrors of war in the Balkans doesn't go well with there being an internet cafe named TW@ around the corner. The mood juxtaposition is even more notable at the end of the final cutscene for a game about the emptiness of the The American Dream and of revenge with the camera panning up the backside of the Statue of Happiness facing towards Liberty City, which wouldn't be so funny if the statue wasn't holding up a steaming hot beverage that represented all the amusing controversy the series has stirred up. note  Even more funny is that the alleged coffee is held up by a statue whose face bears a striking resemblance to one of Grand Theft Auto San Andreas's more noteworthy detractors, though the face isn't shown noticeably the cutscene.

Karma Houdini: Bulgarin just disappears after the mission Diamonds Are a Girl's Best Friend and is never seen or fought again in the main game. Eventually subverted when he turn's out to be the Big Bad of The Ballad of Gay Tony. Also Niko himself if you just decided to mass murder. Even if you don't do that, his murders of cops and to a lesser extent gang members would be rather horrendous if they happened in real life. Michelle even doesn't get punished after she has betrayed Niko

Punk in the Trunk: At the start of the "Roman's Sorrow" mission, Niko finds Roman stuck in the trunk of his own taxi. He hid there to escape the Russians, who are after him due to the events of the previous mission, "Russian Revolution". The dead body variety is used in "Have a Heart", where Niko has to drive a car with the corpses of Manny Escuela and Jay Hamilton in the trunk to the doctor. In the mission "She's a Keeper", Niko has to move Gracie Ancelotti from one safehouse to another, and insists she is transported in the trunk of his car considering the fight she put up the last time he had to transport her.

Deadpan Snarker: Niko. Deconstructed to some extent, as the way he casually mouths off to hardened killers just helps illustrate how little he cares for his own life. Niko will also make snarky comments if a friend calls on the phone wanting to do something while he's on a mission. For example, in mission where you have to take a female hostage to a new hiding place, someone may call you to ask if you'd like to go to a strip club. Niko will reply that he's currently with a woman and that it would be a bad idea to bring her along. A hilarious moment comes when Niko is driving a truck rigged with explosives and Roman calls him asking if he wants to get drunk with him.

Face–Heel Turn: Dimitri betrays Niko to Mr. Bulgarin, a human trafficker that Niko used to work for who believes that Niko stole money from him. Niko also considers this to have happened when he learns His girlfriend, Michelle, is actually a drug enforcement agent working to recruit him. Considering the somewhat unsavory (not to mention illegal) acts Michelle's agency forces Niko to undertake, one could consider that she becomes a heel. Depending on the player's choices, Niko himself can be seen to do this several times in the game, such as when he decides to kill either Playboy X or Dwayne, both of whom are depicted as allies, and later decides whether to continue siding with Francis and kill Derrick, or kill Francis instead.

Elaborate Equals Effective
 Grand Theft Auto IV (Video Game) / int_b1117cc6
comment
Elaborate Equals Effective: Not for weapons, but cars, particularly gang cars. Crosses over with Power Equals Rarity. In previous installments besides San Andreas, gang cars were self-contained vehicles that unfailingly spawned in their respective gangs' home areas. Here, gang cars are randomly-spawning, modified versions of civilian vehicles, distinguished by unique paintjobs and accessories, to hint at their often-enhanced performance. They are rare in areas where their unmodified civilian versions are common, so be prepared to go on a Self-Imposed Fetch Quest or Pixel Hunt if you want one in your parking space. Subverted for civilian-only cars that randomly spawn with rare paintjobs and accessories (see The A-Team Shout-Out entry below for examples). While they look cool, they don't sport enhanced performance. Taken Up to Eleven with NOOSE's service vehicles, which are modified versions of the Police Cruiser, Patriot, and Securicar, respectively. All three are outfitted with LED-lightbars, grilles, and high-profile tires that make them look more menacing than their regular counterparts. The first two are transformed into Lightning Bruisers and the third is made even more of a Stone Wall. They are rare to the point of not spawning anywhere on map the unless you are wanted by the authorities and difficult to get for obvious reasons.

Abusive Parents
 Grand Theft Auto IV (Video Game) / int_b11ac9f5
comment
Abusive Parents: Oh boy, where do we even start? Both Niko's and Roman's fathers are implied to be an abusive alcoholics during conversations between Niko and his friends. Mikahil Faustin is certainly abusive towards his wife Ilyena and is implied to be as well towards their daughter Anna, though he claims that "he spoiled her rotten". While he is certainly an unstable and maniacal individual who orders Niko to kills Anna's boyfriend, it turns out said boyfriend was a pimp trying to turn her into a whore so he might have a point. He still calls her daughter an "out-of-control bitch" because his wife "messed up raising her" and that he doesn't care about his happiness. Dwayne's father was an illiterate, violent pimp and a drug dealer who used to beat Dwayne and his mother. When his father died, Dwayne is said to not have felt nothing. The late patriarch of the McReary family not only was an abusive alcoholic that beat his children, but is also implied to have molested some of them, since Packie calls him a "sick pervert" and his brother Gerry had their father beaten to a pulp when he caught him trying to molest Packie.

Real Is Brown: VERY brown. Sometimes it gets so bad that the entire world gets whitewashed. Should be noted that NYC actually does look that way during certain times of day/seasons.

Take That!: The entire game is one huge middle finger against elements of America - primarily the right wing, though the developers do get in a few shots against the left as well. A couple are taken at Jack Thompson, a lawyer famous for his anti-violent video game activism including campaigning against the Grand Theft Auto series. Tom Goldberg, the lawyer Francis McReary orders Niko to assassinate in "Final Interview" is said to be based off Thompson. He even says Thompson's famous "Guns don't kill people, video games do." line when he's threatened by Niko. Another reference to Thompson is made the offices of "Tom Jackson, Attorney at Law" in Alderney which was converted into a video games store.

Niko flat-out confesses to being a murderer on a date, and she blames society for it and continues the date.

Not only that, but Liberty City's original (colonial) name was "New Rotterdam". It's real-life counterpart's original name was "New Amsterdam" (which, just like Liberty City, was founded by Dutch colonists and then taken over and renamed by Great Britain). And for those who don't know, both Amsterdam and Rotterdam are major Dutch (trading) ports. Also, one street of Liberty City is named after Petrus Stuyvesant. He was the last governor of the New Netherlands (including New Amsterdam) before the aforementioned British takeover. Stuyvesant has real neighborhoods named after him in New York as well. Stuyvesant Heights is one part of the (in)famous Bed-Stuy.

Big Applesauce: Liberty City is such an excellent representation of New York that many reviewers and gamers considered it one of the game's finest points. Also, in fitting with the New York-centrism theme of the trope, Alderney, the game's stand-in for northern New Jersey, has been folded into Liberty City. Staten Island, New York's Butt-Monkey, does not appear (The dev team has stated that they considered basing an in-game location on it, but ultimately concluded that players would find it boring).

It is possible to avoid this friendship decline if you accept their offer and then cancel, but this makes no sense and isn't listed in the manual, and if you initiate the outing and then cancel (as opposed to them calling you), you are penalized.

Stuffed into the Fridge
 Grand Theft Auto IV (Video Game) / int_c1f755e8
comment
Stuffed into the Fridge: Either Kate or Roman (depending on which ending you chose) in the penultimate mission, to give Niko motivation for his Roaring Rampage of Revenge in the final mission. They really stick it to you. Earlier in the game while driving with Roman, Roman talks about how it would be nice if you settled down with Kate, and he with Mallory. No matter what, you don't get that dream. Literally, in one of the subplot missions for Gerald McReary. There's an Albanian stuffed into the fridge, whose Clothes, Boots and Motorcycle you need (this is literally the title of the mission) to kill an unimportant Ancelotti, Frankie Garone.

In addition, complete stand-up comedy routines by Ricky Gervais and Kat Williams can be viewed both on TV and in the Split Sides comedy club. The two Downloadable Content Expansion Packs add additional episodes and comedy routines.

Bonus Feature Failure
 Grand Theft Auto IV (Video Game) / int_c2f149ae
comment
Bonus Feature Failure: The reward for exterminating all the pigeons (and this is one of the few sidequests that gives the player an explicit reward other than money and/or contributing to the 100% Completion percentage) is an Annihilator attack helicopter that spawns on top of a certain building. Said helicopter won't spawn when the roof is accessed from the ground, requiring the player to use another helicopter to get to it. Also, it spawns at three other helipads that can be accessed from the ground, all of which are available without completing the pigeon sidequest, defeating the whole point of the "reward". Indeed, compared to past GTA games, the rewards for side quests, frankly, are not worth the effort. Most have no monetary award, nor do they create weapon spawning points as in the previous games. Some only reward trophies/achievements (and the early release of the PS3 port does not even give trophies). Finally, the reward for actually jumping through all the hoops and getting 100% completion is unlimited ammo capacity for weapons ... but you still have to buy/find the ammo yourself (i.e. no infinite ammo), plus a trophy/achievement, compared to past games that rewarded cool vehicles and tons of (virtual) cash. It's possible Rockstar took criticism of GTAIV's reward system to heart because the two DLC packs saw the return of "traditional" rewards such as weapon caches spawning at safehouses after completing certain side missions.

True Companions: For all Niko's Hurting Hero act and extreme existential depression, he attracts quite a group of crooks who he can honestly call friends, and vice versa. His cousin Roman, the pot smoking Rastafarian Little Jacob, genetically different Brucie, Fighting Irish Packie, and the depressing Dwayne, not to mention the mysterious figure from his past Bernie Crane. All of them can eventually become close enough friends with Niko to offer him their unique services, often tag along during missions outside of the ones they give him, and sometimes Niko even pulls out some of his psychology skills to show them even though they're all pretty screwed up, at least at the end of the day, they have him.

Irony: A very dark variety, as well. If you follow Roman's advice and try to reconcile with Dimitri at the end and take the Deal ending, Dimitri ends up betraying you again and kills Roman. If instead you follow Kate's advice not to take the deal and instead decide to take revenge on Dimitri, Kate is shot in a drive-by.

Let's You and Him Fight
 Grand Theft Auto IV (Video Game) / int_c3bdfbb9
comment
Let's You and Him Fight: On some of the missions, a perfectly acceptable solution is to just call the police and let them shoot the bad guys for you. For example, one Most Wanted mission has you kill a gang that's hanging around an alley with a lot of cover. Unless you are really good at gunfighting, this can be a tricky mission. So, shoot a few cops, take their police cruiser, trigger the mission on its computer, and train the police officers right into the same alley. Alternatively, you can just call 911 and ask for the police. You can summon several cars depending on where you are calling them to. Some missions, however, prevent you from calling the cops as the operator tells you that all the lines are conveniently busy. Once you reach a high enough friendship level with one of the characters, Dwayne, you can ask him to send a couple of gunmen to back you up. Although a few missions disable this feature intentionally, when it comes to the gang shootout mentioned above, and numerous other missions where Niko is outnumbered, the extra firepower can be a lifesaver.

Parking Problems: Very subtly. Cars spawning in a parking lot seldom spawn directly within the lines of a parking stall. The developers could've been too lazy to line the cars up with the stalls, but knowing Rockstar it's more likely an extremely subtle way of mocking American drivers.

Take Your Time: In a lot of missions, you can wander away from the action to go buy new guns, armor, and health and then return to continue the fight later. Inverted, however, by a few missions that have clearly defined time limits and/or fail if you stray too far from the target. Humorously averted early in the game where you're given a choice between meeting Michelle for a date and saving Roman from some Albanian thugs. If you go to Michelle, you'll get a phone call from Roman, who's livid that Niko chose a girl over his cousin. You'll then have to pick him up from the hospital. Of course, afterwards you'll get another phone call from Roman that he's in trouble again, and you'll be able to do the mission normally.

Escort Mission: Most notably the co-op mission "Hangman's NOOSE." The police can't keep up with you if you just fly a helicopter, one spawns roughly 1500 yards from where you start, and the NPC is relatively smart. It's the easiest and fastest way to get multiplayer ranks, which means its one of the few Escort Missions ever that players seek out repeatedly.

 Grand Theft Auto IV (Video Game) / int_d243518d
comment
In Spite of a Nail: No matter what option you choose in the penultimate mission (accept the deal with Dimitri for Pegorino, or use the opportunity to kill Dimitri), the two final missions that follow afterwards follow the exact same basic premise; Someone Niko loves is killed during Romans wedding, leading to Niko going on a Roaring Rampage of Revenge. Little Jacob tracks down some of the men working for the final Big Bad. The mission begins with a lenghty car chase where you follow these men to the old casino. There you have to fight your way past the big bad's mooks, after which the big bad flees. Another chase ensues during which Niko boards a helicopter piloted by Jacob. The chase ends on Liberty Island, where Niko ultimately kills the big bad. By the end of both missions, Dimitri and Pegorino have both bitten the dust. Really, the only main differences between the two scenarios are who is killed during the wedding (Kate or Roman), and the first part of the final chase (in one scenario it's between Niko in a boat and Dimitri in a helicopter, in the other it's between Niko on a motorcycle and Pegorino in a boat).

What the Hell, Hero?: Roman gives Niko a hell of a heartbreaking one after a series of questionable decisions by Niko leads to Roman's apartment and business being burned to the ground. Niko's done nothing but complain about life in America not being as sweet as Roman made it out to be, and Roman has to spell out to Niko that it took him a year starting from nothing to get a shitty apartment and cab business, making Roman actually successful at the American Dream or at least on his way to genuine success, until Niko came along and ruined everything within a week of being there. This doubles as an extremely successful What the Hell, Player?, as you can't help but feel bad having done the usual GTA thing as soon as you set foot in the city, acting like you owned the place while the people there were leading mostly fine lives until you came along. Which is rather hypocritical by Roman as basically 3/4s of the plot revolves around Niko having to move Hell and Earth for gangsters all over town because of Roman's gambling problem. If Niko hadn't showed up, Roman would have lost all his property anyway and possibly ended up Sleeping With The Fishes.

comment
Lightning Bruiser: Despite the in-game media's numerous references to the Hummer Dinger phenomenon, you will find SUVs to be a very valuable part of your gameplay, particularly in combat, since In-Vehicle Invulnerability has been averted. The best SUVs sport large frames that will protect you from gunfire and even make them reliable as Deployable Cover, while retaining speed and handling for a quick getaway. Anything used by NOOSE qualifies as this. The Enforcer in particular is a truck which not only carries gun-toting soldiers, but also drives at an immense speed and slams right through any opposition, including you! The Huntley Sport fulfills the Hard-Hitting Speedster subcategory, with the fastest speed on an SUV and the ability to make perfect drifts; the gang and NOOSE variants of the Patriot are more of Fast-Moving Big Bruisers, being the largest SUVs in the game; while the Cavalcade fills the middle ground between the two. The Ballad of Gay Tony introduces the Serrano, a tuned SUV that manages to outpace even the Huntley Sport, putting it on par with some of the game's sports cars. The better choppers introduced in The Lost and Damned fill this role, particularly Johnny's Hexer and Billy's Revenant, because they possess the speed and acceleration to match the lower-end sport bikes, but pack enough weight to keep the player planted in a crash, or even bat cars out of the way.

Global Ignorance: When talking about Yusuf Amir in the mission Deconstruction for Beginners, Playboy X claims that Dubai is in Africa. He says that Yusuf and he are brothers, and they are from the same part of the world, saying, "Shit, we might be cousins." Niko corrects him by saying that Dubai isn't in Africa.

Historical In-Joke
 Grand Theft Auto IV (Video Game) / int_dfe57573
comment
Historical In-Joke: The Lincoln Tunnel has been renamed The (John Wilkes) Booth Tunnel. Actually counts as two jokes in one, as John's brother Edwin Booth was an extremely famous New Yorker and naming the real tunnel after him would not have been out of the question. The Empire State Building has been named the Rotterdam Tower. Rotterdam surpassed New York as the world's busiest port in the 1980's. Not only that, but Liberty City's original (colonial) name was "New Rotterdam". It's real-life counterpart's original name was "New Amsterdam" (which, just like Liberty City, was founded by Dutch colonists and then taken over and renamed by Great Britain). And for those who don't know, both Amsterdam and Rotterdam are major Dutch (trading) ports. Also, one street of Liberty City is named after Petrus Stuyvesant. He was the last governor of the New Netherlands (including New Amsterdam) before the aforementioned British takeover. Stuyvesant has real neighborhoods named after him in New York as well. Stuyvesant Heights is one part of the (in)famous Bed-Stuy.

Cruel Mercy: In the mission "That Special Someone", Niko and Roman finally confront Darko Brevic, the man responsible for betraying Niko's army unit, only to find out that his life on the run has taken it's toll on him, transforming him into a miserable drug addict who clearly hates his life. He actually wants Niko to kill him, so Roman attempts to coax Niko into invoking this trope and letting him live. The player can choose to follow Roman's advice or kill Darko anyway.

Paper contact who mentions to Niko after reuniting him with Bernie that he knows what it's like to "get close to a man." Talbot mentions that Bernie "likes to be called Florian... at certain moments.", Later he says "I try to block walks of shame from my memory" and "I was high last time I went here" when he arrives at Bernie's apartment, suggesting that he had a relationship with Bernie. Ray Boccino refers to Talbot as a "fanook" which is Italian-American slang for homosexual.

Authority Equals Asskicking: If you take the "Deal" ending, then in the final shootout Dimitri will have double health as well as body armor, making him about 3 times as tough as a normal enemy and the most durable human opponent in the game (though he's still relatively easy to mow down once you finally reach him). Notably, Jimmy Pegorino does not get this bonus durability and is no tougher than a basic Mook in the "Revenge" ending where he's the final opponent instead, further cementing the latter's status as a Big Bad Wannabe.

comment
No Party Given: Despite the game's extensive mockery of the American Political System, the word "Democrat" is never used, and the only use of "Republican" is in the title of the show Republican Space Rangers. However, it can be inferred that Governatorial candidate John Hunter and Liberty City mayor Julio Ochoa are Democrats, while deputy mayor Bryce Dawkins, Governatorial candidate Michael Graves, and President Joe Lawton are Republicans. The word "Democrat" is actually used once in game, though it's kind of out of the way. If you search for the site whattheydonotwantyoutoknow.com, you will be brought to a site that shows where all the pigeons, text-order cars, hidden armor, health, and weapons are. Under the comments for the health, one states something to the effect of "The health was hidden by the Republicans for when the Democrats give everyone free health care."

Check-Point Starvation
 Grand Theft Auto IV (Video Game) / int_f09021fe
comment
Check-Point Starvation: There are no Check Points during missions, regardless of mission length. If you fail the mission, you have to start over from the beginning. This includes driving to the mission's start point. Normally, you can use a taxi to spare yourself the drive, but there are some missions where you are required to drive to the mission location, such as "Catch The Wave." There are 2 missions where this does not apply: A Revenger's Tragedy and Out Of Commission. Once you get to Dimitri/Pegorino's hideout to begin the shootout, if you fail the mission, when you agree to the text message asking if you want to redo the mission, you don't start from the beginning of the mission. You skip the car chase and end up in the cut scene where Niko and Jacob (and Roman in Commission) drive down the embankment toward the hideout. Either one of these two could be the game's final mission. If you fail Hostile Negotiation and choose to restart via the text message, you will automatically be at the warehouse without having to drive there again.

The Alleged Car
 Grand Theft Auto IV (Video Game) / int_f237981e
comment
The Alleged Car: The game features several. You can find rusty, unreliable "beater" variants of several of the cars, including the Sabre, Vigero, and Esperanto ("Roman's Taxi"). You can also find beater variants of the Emperor, all of which have only 3 headlights as a nod to the "Psychobilly Cadillac" from the Johnny Cash song "One Piece at a Time." You can also find a customized "rat rod" version with an acid green vinyl roof. Heck, the "Yankee" truck is only available in "beater" form, (though the degree of wear and decay varies; the "Liberty State Delivery" variant is in relatively decent shape, aside from the graffiti and some mild oxidization, while the "Sprunk" variant wouldn't look too out of place in a game like Fallout 3). The Lost and Damned adds a new open-bed variant of the "Yankee" that's in even worse shape. The body work is permanently dented, it appears to have been painted with house paint which wasn't allowed to dry properly, the mirrors are falling off, the wheels are beginning to rust, and the bed appears to be taken from a much older vehicle, though it ''is'' faster than the normal Yankee due to the cargo box being replaced with a much lighter open bed. The Lost and Damned also adds one other beater variant, the "Gang Burrito" (based on the Burrito), and three cars with no non-beater versions, namely the Regina, Slamvan, and Tow Truck. It also gives us the "Rhapsody" which isn't a "beater" but is based off a well-known Alleged Car, the AMC Pacer. One of the Dummied Out vehicles from The Ballad Of Gay Tony, the "policew" also counts, it appears to be a Police Interceptor that was crashed, then dumped in the ocean, and fished out several years later. It is somehow still drivable, though it probably isn't supposed to be (it is a beta vehicle after all), it was probably only intended for use in a cut scene. Most of the beater variants perform poorly compared to their regular versions, however there are three exceptions: the Gang Burrito, Roman's Taxi, and the open-bed Yankee, all of which are vastly superior performance-wise to their better maintained counterparts.

Automatic New Game: This game, as well as a few other titles developed by Rockstar, uses the trope. It also does its logical counterpart, the Automatic Continue Game; if save-files are found, it will automatically load the latest one. This can get highly annoying if you have multiple different saves and will always have to endure an extra Loading Screen before being allowed to choose which one you actually wanted to load.

However, some of them may slip into Rice Burner territory. Played very straight by the sport sedans, particularly the Korean Mob's Sultan and The Mafia's Sentinel. Both had excellent top speed, acceleration and handling for their class to begin with, but the gangs' modifications put them on near-sports car level. Some of the slower, more lumbering SUVs manage to be elevated beyond Hummer Dinger status through gang modifications, despite becoming more ostentatious. These include The Mafiya's Rebla and the North Holland Hustlers' Patriot, which get a much-needed boost in top speed and acceleration. Unfortunately, some of these modifications are purely cosmetic. Especially disappointing are the Spanish Lords' fleet of cars, which is composed of the Cavalcade and the Primo. The former is already an excellent SUV, but its only modifications are a custom paint job with gold trim and a sound system in the trunk. The latter is a terrible outdated sedan, now equipped with a useless spoiler and body kit.

Running Gag: Niko teasing Brucie about his testicles. In one case when he hears Brucie's reaction after he fails an Exotic Export mission, Niko says, "Brucie, are your balls OK? You sounded real mad."

Niko is revealed to be one as well in relation to Mila, his crush and the alleged town bicycle of his childhood village, according to dialogue with Roman during friend activities. Niko is also blatantly stated by both Alex and Carmen to have been cucked during the time that he had been dating the two of them. He's much less bothered, if bothered at all, by these revelations than he is over Mila.

Well-Intentioned Extremist: Manny Escuela seems genuinely concerned with cleaning up the streets, but at the same time he's homophobic, addicted to publicity and not above manipulating Niko to make himself look good.

Theme Naming
 Grand Theft Auto IV (Video Game) / int_fd94c4ac
comment
Theme Naming: The east-to-west streets in Liberty City's version of Manhattan are named alphabetically (from south to north) after various chemical elements or minerals, similarly to how streets are named after letters in NYC. For example, the south-most road is Amethyst Street, the next one up is Barium Street, and this is followed by Calcium Street. This goes all the way up to Xenotime Street.

Shown Their Work: Architecturally and visually, the resemblance of Liberty City to New York ranges from accurate to uncanny. Likewise, the careful attention paid to accurately representing some of New York's more obscure landmarks and neighborhoods, especially in the outer boroughs, takes Liberty City above and beyond as a NYC analogue.

In the mission "She's a Keeper", Niko has to move Gracie Ancelotti from one safehouse to another, and insists she is transported in the trunk of his car considering the fight she put up the last time he had to transport her.
