* BadBadActing: The second claimant in the Crimson Spouse Indemnity Executive Service is clearly reading his statement out.



* MundaneMadeAwesome: ''San Andreas'' has ''Law'', a police procedural entirely around the paperwork - "Because paperwork is dramatic"

* SuspiciouslySpecificDenial: SuspiciouslySpecificDenial:
** A repeated part of ''San Andreas'' newscasts is ''WCTR'' dealing with the government denying what they're up to, including a place that isn't on the map.
-->'''Liane Forget:''' A government spokesperson who refused to be named said "the place that doesn't have a name doesn't exist, and if it did, we would name it something".
** The Crimson Executive Service has a man talking about how his wife was killed, but he was nowhere near at the time. His phone-record proves it.

* TemptingFate: The advert from Grin, a drug that makes users feel happy and de-stressed, notes there couldn't ''possibly'' be anything habit forming about a drug that makes you feel good all the time.

* CardCarryingVillain: The Clucking Bell adverts from ''San Andreas'' are all about their horrific treatment of their chickens, mix with gloating that no-one can stop them because they're a massive corporation.
-->''Cock-a-doodle-doo, we're a huge corporation!''\\
''Cock-a-doodle-doo, and we can't be stopped!''\\
''All you protestors can go to Hell!''\\
''It's time for Clucking Bell!''

* 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."]]

* 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]].
