* VictoryGuidedAmnesia: In the good ending to ''Manhunt 2'' Daniel wakes up on a roadside, unable to remember his past or even his name, but he has an envelope on him that provides him with a new name and points him to an apartment set up for him. After all he's been through, forgetting everything is a blessing.

''Manhunt 2'' casts players as an amnesiac scientist who wakes up in a mental asylum; with the aid of another inmate, the scientist hopes to escape the asylum and unravel the government conspiracy that locked him up. This game added jumping, gun- and environment-based executions to the gameplay mechanics -- and it also stirred up far more controversy than the first instalment, as several countries denied the game a content rating due to its violent content (which made the game near-impossible to sell). This forced Rockstar to release the game in a revised form that heavily censored the gory execution scenes, though the game was eventually released online in its original uncensored form.

** It should be noted that the games go above and beyond most examples of this not just for the quantity but the realism and sheer brutality of the violence. There's no monsters or zombies here, just desperate and blood-thirsty men. The second game goes even further than the first in this regard, making the executions more drawn out and sadistic to the point that the game's initial computer release and console versions were heavily censored.

* SharedUniverse: Takes place in the same universe as the ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAuto'' series, most notably the GTA III/3D Era. There's a few references to Carcer City in ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoSanAndreas'', and there's also the AllInTheManual backstory that the antagonist Starkweather was a failed film director in Los Santos before moving on to snuff porn. Police chief Gary Schaffer is also mentioned in ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoIII'' on a news report about how he was "cleared of corruption charges".
** Danny is [[AllInTheManual also revealed to have studied in San Fiero]] before the events of the game.

In between ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAuto'' outings, Rockstar Games published '''''Manhunt''''' and ''Manhunt 2'', two controversial [[StealthBasedGame stealth]]/[[PsychologicalHorror psychological]] SurvivalHorror games that share gameplay mechanics, similar settings, and [[NonLinearSequel little else]]. It is one of Rockstar Game's most infamous masterpieces, and the TropeCodifier for games going too [[RatedMForMoney controversial]] and too [[MurderSimulators bloody]] for the public to accept.

In spite of the controversy, the game was quite well-received for its original premise, tight stealth gameplay and frightening atmosphere, but also attracted significant criticism for its shifting emphasis on gunplay over stealth in the latter portion of the game.
