The Story Behind the Perma-Dave Pix

I’ve played a lot of video games, but outside ones like Silent Hill, I can’t remember a game every terrifying me like GTAV did one day.

I was messing around with Dave, riding around on a motorcycle around Grove Street.  Somehow pissed off of the Ballas.  Dave got shot a few times, but we got away.  Went to Legion Square, where for whatever reason, I decided to punch him (using a glitch).

Normally when he does this, it will fail the mission, but if I cause it, it usually won’t fail the mission.  I just have to run off and then run back to get him standing:

Only this time, it got weird and creepy. 

The first thing I noticed was that Dave was bleeding:

I then happened to get a good look at his face and the fearful look in his face creeped me the hell out:

I called 911 several times, but the dumb fucking paramedics wouldn’t help him, so I took him to the hospital and I tried walking into a health pack, but that didn’t stop the look on his face, so I knew of only one other way to help him: complete the next objective in the mission (drive to Chumash).

So I drove him out there and actually went on with the mission, even though back then, there was no way to finish the mission (replay bug).

I remember being really creeped out by this and it taught me a valuable lesson, as this has never happened again and never will, because the hell if I want to go through it again…

For those that never saw them, two of my perma-scared Dave pix.

I call these the Dave LOL test, since I was laughing a lot while trying to get these.

This picture was really hard to get.  When he looks at me, he tends to have his eyes only half open.  I noticed he was sometimes opening them fully, so I had to be very patient and wait for him to have his eyes open all the way AND for him to be looking.  It was worth the wait, though.

I like getting Dave to stand in between things, either on his own or with me moving him into place.

I actually saw some people bitching because of this sign, saying that Rockstar had fucked up by putting it in the desert.  People who apparently don’t know a fucking thing about weather and nature.
If you put a lot of water at once into a dry area, you get flooding, hence the sign.  Ground is too dry to soak up a bunch of water, thus the problem, but hey, let’s just bitch at the devs for being inaccurate and instead be assholes!
