Do you think Niko is Russian or Serbian?

Theres been some talking about if Niko is russian or serbian.What do you think?

#2 Edited by Karmum (11517 posts) -

Well, the gamepage says he was either from Croatia or Serbia, because he was a Veteran of the Bosnian War. So that probably rules out Russian.

He is Serbian...

#5 Posted by PeasForFees (2411 posts) -

He said he was Serbian

#6 Posted by dbz1995 (4790 posts) -

I think hes Spanish...

#7 Edited by Keyser_Soze (1186 posts) -

He's 1/2 Serbian, 1/4 Croat, 1/4 Bosnian and lived most of his life in nowaday Kosovo. Oooh touchy. I want a Serb v Croat v Bosnian v Kosovan online war right now.

And just to get things going Josip Tito was a better leader than that imbecile Milosevic was anyday.

He's not Russian. He says that several times during the game. I believe he is either Serbian or Croatian.

Well, what language is he speaking when he's speaking his native language? We know for a fact it isn't Russian, but it almost definitely is a language from one of the Balkan states.

Oh snap! Shit just got real!
#16 Posted by Milkman (16526 posts) -

I'm pretty sure the game tells you that he's Serbian.

#17 Posted by dsplayer1010 (2227 posts) -

The game never says where he's from, but Niko makes it clear that he isn't Russian.

#18 Posted by PureRok (4235 posts) -

I believe on his singles page it says he's Serbian. Either that, or it was on the police records. I know it wasn't specifically told to you in the main story, but there is a place in-game that tells you. I don't remember where exactly, but I do remember reading it.

#19 Posted by Forcen (1804 posts) -

He speaks Serbian in the cutscenes.

#20 Posted by OutOfBounds9000 (2300 posts) -
@Suicrat: He speaks serbian/croatian (Serbian and croatian is the same language)Because i can speak that language...a lil bit.
#21 Posted by Captain_Insano (1527 posts) -

He's definitely not russian. I remember at one point playboy X keeps referring to Nico as Russian, and he keeps correcting him.
#23 Posted by Creamypies (4051 posts) -

There's no debate here. Niko IS Serbian.

#24 Posted by Einherjan (582 posts) -

I can't remember what part of the game this happens. It is most likely after he says he's Serbian, but he does say he fought in the war. The only major war that occurred in Eastern Europe was the Bosnian War. There were others too, but it's the most famous.

This was a worthwhile post. It contributed to the topic greatly.

@dcpc10: I completed the game three times!
#28 Posted by Hockeymask27 (3683 posts) -

he's not russian as many people pointed out. Nut who cares where he is form anyway.

#29 Posted by Loc95 (35 posts) -

I do. Well, people, Niko is Serbiaaaan... it was revealed that he was born in Yugoslavia (old name of Serbia). And he can't be Canadian as someone mentioned it. His accent is too bad (if someone doesn't know - Canadians also speak English)
 
And I'm sure that the language he sometimes used isn't Russian. But I can't bet everything on that's Serbian. End. :P

"It is suggested that Niko was born in Yugoslavia and grew up in a small town in modern-day Serbia."
 
I'd say he's Serbian.

Why the fuck people still post in an old topic to which an answer was given 50 FUCKING TIMES?

Because it's more of a debate. People are just answering the question asked i guess.

Maybe it's just me, but when people visit a topic and leave one sentence which was already posted 30 times and do not offer anything more to the discussion, this can hardly pass as a debate.

Not to forget someone bumped a month old topic that was left answered a million times.
