Liberty City Survivor is a reality show in Grand Theft Auto III about "20 recently paroled guys...equipped with grenade launchers and flamethrowers". They have to hunt each other down until only one man is left standing. The idea parodies reality television, especially the early 2000's trend towards more degrading formulas such as Fear Factor. A man on the commercial states that "I was grabbing a sandwich at the Happy Blimp, and all of a sudden, these guys crashed through the window and started shooting at each other. I was so excited, I didn't even notice I've been hit! After that I was hooked on Liberty City Survivor. I watch it every day in the hospital!"
Liberty City Survivor is also a reference to a promised-but-canceled multiplayer mode in GTA III. However, "Liberty City Survivor" would come to fruition as a multiplayer mode in Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories. The voiceover is from Jeff Berlin.
- The show bears strong resemblance to the novel and movie Battle Royale, where a group of kids are given assault weapons and forced to hunt each other down until only one is left alive.
- The television show is advertised over Chatterbox FM and Flashback FM.
- The concept of the show bears a slight resemblance to The Running Man, a novel and film about a game show where convicted criminals must escape being hunted down by professional killers.
