"Life is complicated; I killed people, smuggled people, sold people. Perhaps here, things will be different." -- Niko Bellic

Grand Theft Auto IV is set in 2008 in a redesigned Liberty City, a stylized recreation of New York City. Niko Bellic is an Eastern European (Serbian) that has come to America to find a better life and to look for that "special someone." Following the advice of his cousin Roman. When he arrives, he finds that Roman has been lying - he isn't rich, he isn't popular, and he's actually heavily in debt from loan sharks. Niko has been duped to solve Roman's problems, and soon ends up in trouble himself. However, Niko isn't here in Liberty City just because of the supposed fortune and hot babes; he is also trying to find a "special someone" and The American Dream.
