  • Michael De Santa

Negativity is the third therapy session that Michael has with his therapist, Dr. Friedlander but the first phone session that they have together. The dialogue of the therapy session will depend on which mission was completed beforehand.

If the mission was Mr. Richards, Michael will say that his life has been awful and that he has been making some bad decisions, he explains that his family have left him and that they won’t even answer the phone when he calls. He also reveals that he has met a man called Solomon Richards and that they are working together at a movie studio. Dr. Friedlander responds that he is glad things have been looking up, but he also says that Michael should not look for validation outside of himself.

If the previous mission was Minor Turbulence, Michael explains that he is in the middle of the desert at the moment and his wife and kids abandoned him. He says that he is living in a trailer with his psycho best friend and they have both kidnapped a man’s wife. Dr. Friedlander responds by saying that Michael needs to have more time for therapy and that this is a major relapse.

Dr. Friedlander asks if Michael has anything else he needs to talk about, his response will be dependent on the player’s actions in the game. Michael may say that he feels like two different people and that he doesn’t like neither of them, or he may say that he hurts other people without thinking and then feels bad about what he did. Regardless of what Michael says to his therapist, Dr. Friedlander will give advice to which the player can accept or reject this advice.

If Michael rejects Dr. Friedlander’s advice, he will say that it’s easy for him to judge and that he has had a tough childhood. On the other hand if Michael accepts his advice, he will tell him that there’s a part of him that he just can’t seem to control.

Michael then gets asked about his recent sexual behaviour, again Michael’s response to this will be dependent on the player’s action in the game. If Michael did not sleep with any prostitutes then he will respond by saying the has had “thoughts” but didn’t follow them through or that he has been a “good boy”. However if Michael did sleep with prositutes, he will explain that he “got lonely” and called a girl to which Dr. Friedlander will critisice him for doing so.

The phone session continues wih Michael explaining that he feels like he is doing better to which Dr. Friedlander responds that therapy can really help him. He ends the phone session with saying that phone sessions are more expensive but very fulfilling. Michael pays $1,500 to Dr. Friedlander.
