In most Grand Theft Auto games, pedestrians can speak in public. This can vary between general monologues, dialogue between pedestrians, comments to the protagonist, exclamations if the player bumps into them, or reactions to events around them. Specific types of pedestrian, particularly those in gangs, have different comments and accents to suit their background and role.
These are some key examples of pedestrian speech:
- Hey, watch the suit, man! [GTA VC]
- I'm gonna stick my foot so far up your ass! [GTA VC]
- Is your aftershave made from faeces?! [GTA SA]
