Plot Synopsis revealed

I just noticed the information section reveals the plot synopsis for GTA IV (The blurb on the back on the case).

Quote:
What does the American dream mean today?

For Niko Bellic, fresh off the boat from Europe, it is the hope that he can escape his past.

For his cousin, Roman, it is the vision that together they can find fortune in Liberty City, gateway to the land of opportunity.

As they slip into debt and are dragged into a criminal underworld by a series of shysters, thieves and sociopaths, they discover that the reality is very different from the dream in a city that worships money and status, and is heaven for those who have them and a living nightmare for those who don't.

Why didn't I realise that, that was the plot synopsis when I first read it.
I like it though. It's very well worded.

i really like that there's no more "and take over the city"... that got old... but i still hope you'll be able to jack a nice car and store it in some garage, even though the garage belongs to a crappy apartment.

Then the plot referenced, may mean in the end Niko & co. will find not so much great wealth, but other treasures. Like maybe Niko will hook up with a cool girl, an be truly happy, instead of 9 trillion dollars on the stats, in the menu section.

True since Dan Houser did say something about it being a rags to 'slightly better rags' story rather than becoming a millionaire.

I didn't realise either but it makes sense.

Yeah. Everytime is was the same.
- "You've been betrayed and left for dead, now you're taking revenge."
- "His only answer is to fight back and take over the city himself."
- "CJ is forced on a journey that takes him across the entire state of San Andreas, to save his family and take control of the streets."

I was really getting tired of reading about taking over the city.

It doesn't say for Roman. it says they slip into debt, meaning, they both start to have money troubles.

I think Roman is in debt with the Mafia. It would actually explain why hes getting chased and tortured in Trailer 3.

"Debt" doesn't only refer to money, you know.

It does when using the word in that manner.

Oh yeah, "slip into debt" usually refers to money. I think if it was anything else it would have been "indebted".

I think I read somewhere that the Mafia were in the game but they don't have a big role in the storyline. So maybe they could be a part of a few missions or maybe they won't.

Also, thanks for spotting that out Victim.
