These are the words of Yusuf Amir - spoiled rich kid, property magnate and part-time arms dealer. Yusuf likes many things - prostitutes, class A drugs and stolen military hardware - but most of all he likes to have fun. The invitation I just quoted is taken from one of the early missions in The Ballad of Gay Tony, and in many ways it sums up what this episode is all about. Like The Lost and Damned, and GTA IV before it, TBoGT is ultimately a story about flawed, messed-up people - but this time the melancholy is all but overwhelmed by a massive streak of hedonism."
