As opposed to the slums and poverty-stricken protagonists of ''IV'' and ''The Lost and Damned'', ''The Ballad of Gay Tony'' focuses on Liberty City's upper-class nightclub culture.

* ShowWithinAShow: As with the other GTA IV-era games, a number of TV programs can be viewed in-game, including the anime spoof Princess Robot Bubblegum and Republican Space Rangers. And the radio stations featured in the other games are available once again, some of which contain complete episodes of programs like the HowardStern-spoofing ''Martin Serious Show''.

* ContinuityDrift: Averted for the most part. Unlike ''The Lost and Damned'', which broke continuity from GTA IV by allowing the player to free-roam all of Liberty City at a time when, in the main game, the bridges connecting the boroughs should be closed, ''Gay Tony'' starts after the events of the GTA IV mission that open up all the bridges.

** Underlining the "optional" part, there seems to be no game-advancing purpose to engaging in this. You don't even win a trophy (in the PS3 version) if you previously made it to third base with one of Niko's girlfriends in GTA IV.
