*exclusive to The Lost and Damned.
Any website advertised ingame can be visited, such as those advertised on the radio, billboards, posters and TV.
Most of the websites are just for the players amusement, but a few of them actually have a purpose. At least one site has a rather unpleasant effect when visited; littlelacysurprisepageant.com will immediately give the player a five star wanted level.
The player can set up dates with people on the Love Meet website, or buy ringtones and wallpapers for Niko's cell phone. Niko's email is also frequently used for staying in touch with story characters and getting mission details sometimes. Brucie Kibbutz will also send Niko emails asking him to steal certain vehicles for him. Emails from Love-Meet.net are the only emails the player can receive after completing the Story.
There is also a site which shows you where useful hidden objects are like pigeons (for an achievement), guns health and armor. This website is whattheydonotwantyoutoknow.com.
