Easter Egg: Prank Calls

Here's something funny to try. During your adventure through Liberty City, you may find phone numbers written in inconspicuous places, such as on the side of a building or in the subway. If you dial these numbers, you'll usually get someone on the other end who you can subsequently prank.

Easter Egg: Statue of Happiness

Head to the Statue of Happiness on Happiness Island via helicopter. Have the helicopter drop you off on the very top of the statue. You'll find a sign up there that states "No Hidden Content Beyond This Point", but it's a lie. If you head inside of the statue from this area, you'll find an actual beating heart inside the statue. How ridiculously creepy!

Easter Egg: Fire Truck Madness

If you boost a fire truck, press the fire button while driving around. This will allow you to shoot the super-powerful water cannon at anyone around you. Watching people react to getting shot with high-speed water is hilarious.

I knew these games were big business but almost half a billion dollars on release is insane money. I have no interest in playing these games but I have to admit that the screen going fuzzy after drinking sounds hilarious. The rest not so funny.

Ack, the game hasn't even been out more than a couple days. People searching for cheats already should at least get frustrated for a few weeks before giving in. That's half the fun of the game. Discovering the "secrets" yourself
