The Top 7... GTA IV Easter eggs (so far)

 

Normally, you'll only get access to this website by checking your in-game email after finishing GTA IV's story missions - but technically, you can go there at any time before then, making this the most useful "Easter egg" in the game. Once you get access to the in-game internet, just hit up www.whattheydonotwantyoutoknow.com, and you'll get access to maps detailing where to find every stunt jump, health pack and diseased pigeon in the game, among other thins. This one doesn't offer the same thrill of discovery as the other Easter eggs we've discussed so far, but then those won't help you unlock any Achievements, will they?

 
Above: Sick of finding things on your own? The game provides its own handy cheat-sheet.

When we first learned that you couldn't just walk up into the Statue of Happiness (GTA IV's version of the Statue of Liberty) and peer out from her crown, we were devastated… until we found out what was really in there. To see Lady Happiness' innermost secret for yourself, just hop inside a helicopter and fly out to Happiness Island. Once there, hover by her feet and bail out onto the normally inaccessible platform that supports them. Walk around the base, and you should see a sign that says "No Hidden Content this way:"

 

That's a dead giveaway right there. Walk through the door and you'll see a ladder. Climb it all the way to the top, and you'll be confronted with this massive, chained, beating heart:

 

Never mind the silly sweatshirt you can get by just strolling up to the top of the statue's base - this is Grand Theft Auto IV's biggest and best secret (so far, at least). To see it in action, just check out this video:

    yeah i seen that stroller up close i had a police hummer, and 4 stars running from the cops at full speed, and hit when your going full speed you can make the stroller knock it a good distance. I see it's been a while since last post figured i'd tell people

    In case anyone's curious, the original GTA 3 had schoolbusses full of children and a crazed domestic terrorist who wanted you to blow up buildings, those (and the world trade centers) were the only things they had to take out before they released the game (9/11 happened like a month before the game was supposed to come out) That probably has something to do with why there has never been kids in GTA. Plus some wackjob who hates kids would go set off some grenades in an elementary school and try to blame GTA for it and if GTA gets shut down permanently, that'd be the end of an important legacy to most gamers from my generation.

  • RickyV300 - July 10, 2009 6 a.m.

    when you see the stroller video pause at 9 seconds, you will see a very scary image that is supposed to be a stain...
  • PreciousDevilx - June 8, 2009 3:45 a.m.

    Try getting a cop car and blowing all the siren lights off untill you hear a weird siren, get into the car turn the siren on and enjoy the screaming car. havent tried wit ambulance nor firetruck tho. huh
  • kidliquid - April 14, 2009 2:16 a.m.

    The scream heard when the stroller is shot is Ewan McGregor's character Renton from Trainspotting. It is the scene where Rents is coming off the smack and the dead baby is crawling along the ceiling towards him, unmistakeable.

    u know there is a pigeon in the place where the heart is i shot a rocket at the heart and it said i killed a pigeon

    Wow, I never knew this game had it's own cheat sheet in the game, that will save me some time, awesome inclusion Rockstar.
