The country's OFLC (Office of Film and Literature Classification) rating system is sometimes considered to be slightly harsher than that of the Australian OFLC. For example, Australians can buy Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas at the age of 15, while New Zealanders must be over 18 to purchase or rent the game. It should, however, be noted that New Zealand has an 18+ rating for games -- Australia lacks this outright, meaning that particularly violent or sexually explicit games may be refused classification and banned from sale. New Zealand sells the full version of Grand Theft Auto IV, while Australia has a censored version.

- On the radio chat show "Chattersphere" a man calls saying he lost his children at Del Perro Pier, after a moment this man starts screaming and crying, as Lazlow or Michelle Minx goes to cut him of he says "I'm going back to New Zeal.." which is strange because his accent sounds very American. this is the first reference to New Zealand in a Grand Theft Auto game yet.
- The helicopter pilots for the Parachute Jumps could be New Zealanders, owing to their accents and their country being famed for its thrill seeking activities.
- It is possible that, like Australia, the Angels of Death MC also have chapters in New Zealand but no evidence to this effect is ever given in-game. The Angels of Death having chapters in the country would reflect the Hells Angels (who the Angels of Death are based on) having several chapters in New Zealand.
