It should be noted that the characters list is not extensive. Not all the characters featured in Grand Theft Auto IV are included despite some committing criminal acts prior; certain characters featured in the downloadable content (DLC) for Grand Theft Auto IV, The Lost And Damned and The Ballad Of Gay Tony may also be absent, presumably because the characters were only created during development of the DLCs, after the database list in Grand Theft Auto IV was finalized.
After the mission Blood Brothers, if the player chose to kill Derrick McReary, Francis will send you an e-mail with an easy-to-access link to the database with "Those Who Have Strayed From The Path" as a subject line.
- The database has a couple of inconsistencies and false information. For example, it lists Tony Prince's age as 50 when he is actually 45, and claims that Ray Bulgarin is dead throughout the events of the game, when he is clearly not, as it does with Jon Gravelli, Bledar Morina and Kalem Vulaj.
- Also, the site is not always updated. If Playboy X dies, the site does not list him as deceased, same with Joseph DiLeo and Luca Silvestri.
