* SchmuckBait: In ''IV'', just try visiting the [[{{Lolicon}} Little Lacy Surprise Pageant]] website. ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2gaC1aJIb6g We dare you.]]'' [[spoiler:You will get a message from the police telling you that the website has been shut down and that your IP address has been logged. Oh, and you get [[OhCrap a five-star wanted level]], with the police scanner mentioning "a sexual deviant attempting to access explicit images."]]

Added DiffLines:

* WordSaladPhilosophy: Much of what's said by the DJ of The Journey, which is a computer, can range from existential crisis fuel, to complete and utter nonsense.
-->'''Computer:''' You are listening to the Journey but you have tuned it out. In your minds are a million seeds filled with hope. Seeds that cry out in unison and die as reality shifts. Is your mind madness or the Messiah?

* ValuesResonance: Invoked InUniverse by the ''Moorehead Rides Again'' radio drama from ''[[VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoViceCityStories Vice City Stories]]''[='=] Vice City Public Radio (VCPR), a parody of hard-boiled {{Private Detective}}s such as ''Literature/MikeHammer''. While the show was said to have originally aired near the end of WorldWarTwo, back when [[RedScare fear of communism creeping into America]] is slowly giving way to the [[WitchHunt social nightmare that was McCarthyism]], it resonates with American sentiments around forty years later (i.e., 1984, the setting of the game), in light of intensifying tensions between America and the Soviet Union (one that began with the latter's invasion of Afghanistan in 1979), long before UsefulNotes/MikhailGorbachev came in and [[TheGreatPoliticsMessUp the USSR dissolved]].

* StrawmanNewsMedia: The news is portrayed, to a man, as a bunch of ass-clowns who are either trying to drive a BiasSteamroller or are too vapid and air-headed to do so.

* TakeThatAudience:
** Independence FM, a station exclusive to the PC version of ''IV'' that plays songs off from the player's computer, has station [=IDs=] that hint at the songs being stolen.
** Similarly, Self Radio, another PC-exclusive station in ''V'' that serves the same purpose, has station [=IDs=] that mock the player, calling them [[SmallNameBigEgo egotistical]], [[ItsAllAboutMe narcissistic, and selfish]].
* TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything: [[RichBitch Alex Chilton]], one of the [[DatingSim girlfriends]] you can pick up in ''[[VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoIV IV]]''[='=]s in-game Internet, runs a blog. Whenever you take her out on a date, she blogs about what you did afterwards, including your "sexcapades".

* SequelEscalation: ''[[VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoClassic GTA 1]]''[='=] tiny handful of radio stations had around three songs each. By the time the ''[[VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoIV IV]]'' saga rolls out, it had expanded to several hours' worth of licensed music, dedicated chat shows, celebrity [=DJs=], advertisements, websites, and TV channels. This also extends to how the radio itself is implemented -- while a radio station in previous games was simply one long audio file, ''[[VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoSanAndreas San Andreas]]'' stored songs, DJ chatter, and commercials separately, allowing the game to randomize them. ''[[VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoIV IV]]'' takes this even further, with a dynamic radio system that changes shows, songs, advertisements, DJ chatter, and news [[TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything depending on the weather, time of day, or how far along the storyline you are]].

** Nurse Bob, host of the "Heartland Values" segment of ''Liberty City Stories''' LCFR, is a fairly ruthless parody of DrPhil.
