now that you said it I feel like I remember that something like this could happen.

Anyhow, you should always check trophy/achievement lists first for missables. It probably didn't sound like it was missable, but there are sites that would've quickly told you otherwise.

I won't make the mistake again. I already checked vice city and turns out there are no missables there.

I kind of have the urge to try this again but the thought of doing paramedic level 12 again makes me feel ill.

You can use cheats in this game, doesn't affect trophies or in-game progression. So just spam the health cheat and Paramedic is easy as can be. 

Be aware though that there are quite some more glitches in this game, so when you try again be sure to save often and make backups. 

Happy hunting!

I took pride I did everything the first time around without cheats but you can be assured I'll be using every cheat possible for the next playthrough if I do! Thanks for this tip because it will surely make it much easier.

Oh boy, that really sucks man. This game doesn't take much pre-planning like, say, South Park: The Stick Of Truth, which is just obnoxious with it's missable and hidden trophies. With GTA 3 it's basically "Finish the Horace St. Claire missions before completing Jimmy Corochio's missions" x2. Too bad you didn't check for missables beforehand.

I just can't believe there are like 7 main missions that are missable. And the game gave no warning either.

Thanks Don San :(



I had that problem in GTA V as well, but I manage to get it, the GTA IV isn't fixable by playing the single player again in a rush? If you have the online trophies, i would do it, if not, then forget it, they are a huge grind on top of playing the single campaign again. Rock star was one my favorite devs 10 years ago, now not so much...

When the glitch happened that prevented me from getting the trophy for 100% in gta 4 I decided fuck it and didn't go for the online trophies.. The online is now shut down so it's not possible anyway. Such a stupid platinum gta 4. Hopefully they remaster it some day with a new platinum not connected to online modes.

 

What glitch fucked you over in gta v? 



That's one of the reasons why I'll look up a guide/tips on a game if it's a rpg or a lengthy game. It's really easy to ruin a play through.

The one where you as Franklin buy the Taxi Company and after that you have to wait for a call and do a side mission of driving someone to his destination. Never got the call, only after jumping through some hoops ibdid manage to receive the call and do the damn mission...

I know how you feel. Similar thing happened to me for Final Fantasy 10. I'm missing one of those Al Bhed Primers to get platinum. However, I missed the one that I cant go back to. Oh well.

Same thing happened here. Rockstar knew about this glitch from the ps3 version yet they didn't bother fixing it on the ps4 version. That annoyed me the most. 

 

I read online people said it randomly popped months later when switching from online back to offline. Luckily gta online was turbulent at the time and would often disconnect and boot you back to the single player. And months later one of the days I was kicked offline the taxi mission popped. Same for the Tonya mission. 

 

It annoys me how such a big and wealthy developer doesn't fix such a thing. Anyway at least I got it. 



That was what the game RAGE did to me. I completed all the races and vehicle battles post-story, some of which were hard as all hell, only to find out that certain collectibles can’t be accessed after certain points in the story, so I couldn’t get either the collectives or 100% trophy unless I did it all again. I literally said fuck that, and destroyed the disc. 82% forever.

Ha ha. :) I did that once, with NHL 10 on the PS3.
