** Police officers are allowed to draw a weapon on someone for hitting another person, refusing to pay highway toll, flank roadblocks or [[NationalTreasure trespassing on government property]] (hell, even ''shoot'' them if they feel like it, which would be the case at most times).

* HundredPercentCompletion: As is traditional in the GTA franchise, there is a ''long'' list of things to do in-game (aside from the missions) in order to achieve the coveted 100% completion ranking. Unfortunately, while most of the other GTA games (including GTA V) offer a number of cool rewards, [[spoiler: the award in this game is little more than the ability to carry infinite ammo - which you still have to pay for]].

* TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything: Try to approach the warehouse when the Russians are holding Roman hostage by helicopter. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=htIwK9ml72I&t=02m14s You'll be shot by two mooks with rocket launchers.]] Yes, Rockstar added guards for the roof even though one player in a million would think of trying that.

* WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds: 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.

* WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds: Niko. The game clearly implies that he's a very unhappy man for being a murderer. Sure he's cold at times and did terrible things in the past, but his entire childhood was spent in war, violence and poverty. Following the game's plot, he does nothing but return to the old ways of the violent life.
