I would like the protagonist to be the Hispanic guy simply because it's hard to see a white guy roaming around the hoods killing other gang members. Not only will he look out of place but if that was real life, he'd probably get shot for being in the wrong place the instant he hit Compton lol.gif

You're understanding of L.A. gang culture is completely skewed. As a white person from L.A. who has driven through Compton (which is fairly tame) and Watts (a bit more intimidating, tbh), white people are the last people that are going to get shot. Gang members typically target rival gang members; not random, unaffiliated white drivers or pedestrians. On the contrary, dead white folk in the ghetto will only bring more heat on the community. If anything, Ned Luke dealing with street thugs would be fresh and provide lots of interesting culture clash since he'd be out of his element... much like Walter White in Breaking Bad. I would only like the hispanic guy to be our protagonist if he was more than a gangbanger and got out of his element as well, for example, by being a Vinewood stunt driver on the side. L.A. is about so much more than gangs, which are incredibly over-hyped with respect to violence and influence. For V, R* needs to think bigger than petty gang wars. I want to take over LS for myself, not for my gang.

I agree. I mean people say a white man having dealings with gangs in LA is far fetched, but it made perfect sense in SA for a gangbanger to overtake a mob run casino in LV or have any sort of influence?

I dont know, but the vibe I've always got from GTA V's trailer isn't one where the street gang culture is widely present. I know we haven't seen everything yet, but R* typically emphasis the general theme in the first trailer like they always have.

IMO I think heists, car chases and Vinewood will be the main themes in GTA V. I only see street gang culture being a backdrop this time around instead of putting us in the thick of it. It would be interesting playing as middle aged white man in a time where the economy has gone to sh*t.

We were exposed to gangs in SA. I think it's time we saw LA from a different perspective.

I'm not trying to deny that having a gangbanger overtake a mob-run casino in LV was unrealistic. I'm just trying to say that from a storytelling standpoint, R* has evolved from SA. The IV story is considerably deeper and more realistic than any other story in the series. To suggest that R* would suddenly move away from this trend for anything other than a side-story (a la TBoGT) is asinine.

And if the main theme of the game is heists, car chases, and Vinewood, I'll be extremely disappointed. It's highly hypocritical to insinuate that gangs are an overblown aspect of LA culture, and then suggest that the game's story will consist of the glitz and glamour of Hollywood, as that is actually the most over-publicized aspect of LA culture. Other than providing some jobs, Hollywood doesn't affect the life of the average LA resident. However, gangs certainly affect the lives of those living in the ghetto, which sadly enough is a pretty large portion of LA.

Seeing LA from a different perspective would be highly unrealistic, as this is a video game in which the protagonist commits crime and wreaks havoc. Considering that the city's crime legacy is mostly related to gangs and that most of the major crime that persists today is still caused by gangs, the protagonist, Caucasian or Hispanic, has to work with gangs almost exclusively.

And just to clear any confusion, I still think the protagonist is Ned Luke, as the evidence for him being the protagonist is just too overwhelming. I'm just interested to see how they can make interactions between him and the gangs believable.

Very true and I agree with you icon14.gif

Although I just hope this Ned Luke guy is not the protagonist.

He clearly looks like a Hispanic to me, albeit a goofy-looking and poorly-rendered one.

He looks to me like actor David Ramsey,who got role of informer and boyfriend of Dexter sister in Dexter TV show:

Still think that Balcony guy is main protagonist,but this guy could be another protagonist,or important character like Packie or Little Jacob in IV.

He really doesn't resemble him all that much. And that actor is 40 years old, while the Hispanic guy is probably around 30 years old.

I'm not insinuating gangs are an overblown aspect of LA. I'm just basing off from what I saw from the trailer and to me it was very concentrated on downtown LS/Vinewood.

As I said R* typically capture the general theme in the first trailer and if you ask me this game I think is going to have a very "Heat" like feel to it and the divide between rich/poor during an economic crisis.

Of course though for the sake of authenticity street gangs have to have some involvement in the story, but I don't think it needs to be as prominent as it was in SA which lets face it when people think of LA they think of the 90s, the LA riots etc which I think SA captured very well.

What has me intrigued about Ned Luke is if he is the protagonist it will be interesting to see modern day LA/LS from his perspective rather than say a young black, hispanic, asian man etc deeply involved in the ghetto.

I'm not saying however R* wouldn't be able to make an interesting game with a protagonist from those backgrounds. I have my criticisms of SA and funnily enough even though I'm not huge fan of the street gang theme that was the part of the game I actually liked.

Even if R* throw in the shoes of one the other proposed protagonists it doesn't bother me. I'd just much rather play as this Ned Luke guy as I prefer De Niro-ish type protagonists who can use their wealth of experience as a criminal to their advantage.

Yes he just looks like him, I'm not implying (I hope the guy that pointed this out isn't either) that he's based on him. I mean Ned Luke obviously IS the balcony guy and he's identical to him so it would be pretty obvious if the "hispanic" guy was indeed aforementioned actor.

Btw he doesn't look "hispanic" to me, what I see is a typical nigg.. black guy. rolleyes.gif

I kid the blacks, they're delightful tounge.gif

Whoa, I sorta mixed up part of your post with Dick Valor's post, who was insinuating that gangs are an overblown part of LA culture. Also, it seemed like you kinda agreed with his thoughts about gangs being an overblown part of LA culture, but I'm sorry if I misjudged exactly what you were trying to say.

@Dick Valor

I drive through Compton and Watts all the time, and I completely agree that they are not the most menacing-looking or dangerous places on Earth, or even Southern California. However, this relates more to LA simply not being a very dangerous city anymore, rather than street gangs not having a lot of influence over the crime scene. This may not be the early 90s when gangs absolutely wreaked havoc across LA, but gangs are still the primary crime-causing groups in LA and they need to be properly represented in V, even if the protagonist is Ned Luke. (who I do think is the protagonist)

Agree 100%. I would be disappointed if there wasn't any gangs at all, of course. I just don't want LS to get typecast in the GTA universe and constantly represented with the same story. I do want gang culture to play a big role in V, but I want Hollywood and medical marijuana to be prominent as well, since these are also a huge part of L.A.'s economy and culture.

Right, I completely agree. I don't want a re-hashed version of SA's story. I'm just hoping that R* doesn't downplay the fact that gangs are still the primary crime-causing groups in LA.

The balcony guy! And what's more I really think that he is Tomy Vercety. Looks like an older version of him, doesn't he? That's why they don't show his face that much. Rosenburg is already there, from the San Andreas games. CJ may also be here or there, he may be the bad guy or something. GTA never have cross overs except in San Andreas. This time things may be different. That's the bold new direction they will take. Just my opinion. I guess I really wanted more games with CJ in them.

lol, im sorry but what does him driving a car has to do with anything, balcony man was never seen in the trailer doing stuff that only the protagonist could do.

Now let's see:
Hispanic guy (in red car):
1- was driving the red car and got chased by cops
user posted image

2- tried to pick up girls

user posted image

3- was driving a van to a mission location
user posted image
.
.
-Balcony Guy:
1- appeared in a cut-scene (looking at the city view)


2- appeared in the bank robbery cut-scene (wasn't ever driving lol)


3- was driving a car (but didn't got chased by cops)
......

I'm sorry but according to the trailer it goes like this:
Hispanic guy = Main Protagonist

Balocny Guy: Second protag/Antagonist

Ned Luke's face/body is more detailed though. We get a close-up on him, while the Hispanic guy is always seen from a distance. And the protagonist in the trailer says "I wanted to retire, from what I was doing, you know." Seeing as Ned Luke is older, making him more experienced, I'm sure that he's the main character.

I don't think the guy talking in the trailer is the protagonist, remember RDR trailer? everybody thought john marston (the protag) is the guy talking in the trailer, but guess what it wasn't him it was Drew macfarlane, a character that only appeared FOUR times in the game lol

Ned Luke's face/body is more detailed though. We get a close-up on him, while the Hispanic guy is always seen from a distance. And the protagonist in the trailer says "I wanted to retire, from what I was doing, you know." Seeing as Ned Luke is older, making him more experienced, I'm sure that he's the main character.

I don't think the guy talking in the trailer is the protagonist, remember RDR trailer? everybody thought john marston (the protag) is the guy talking in the trailer, but guess what it wasn't him it was Drew macfarlane, a character that only appeared FOUR times in the game lol

The guy from the GTAV-trailer talks about his story though, and Bonnie's father talks about the main tone for the game. The two trailers are very different from eachother. Where the RDR one sets the tone for the game, the GTAV one introduces a character to the game.

Doesn't drew talk about his early life/backstory. That seems like introducing a character to me.

The RDR trailer does have a non-protagonist voiceover but it features the protagonist clearly throughout. In the unlikely event the voice isn't Balcony Guy's, he's still in the trailer the most.

Not really, no. Because in the GTAV-trailer, the guy talks about his past, and then about the present. Whereas Drew only takls about the past. The GTAV trailer prepares you for what's to come, and the RDR trailer sets the general tone for the game: 'The Wild West'.

the balcony guy because we see him driving that car in one of the shots in the trailer.

lol, im sorry but what does him driving a car has to do with anything, balcony man was never seen in the trailer doing stuff that only the protagonist could do.

Now let's see:
Hispanic guy (in red car):
1- was driving the red car and got chased by cops

2- tried to pick up girls

3- was driving a van to a mission location

-Balcony Guy:
1- appeared in a cut-scene (looking at the city view)


2- appeared in the bank robbery cut-scene (wasn't ever driving lol)


3- was driving a car (but didn't got chased by cops)
......

I'm sorry but according to the trailer it goes like this:
Hispanic guy = Main Protagonist

Balocny Guy: Second protag/Antagonist

Wow, why are you even bothering to prove your point dude? there is going to be multiple protagonists. case closed

Still stand by Ned luke.

Will be interesting to play as a character of his type. Plus i think he looks really cool and think the ladies might dig the older gentleman bad ass type.

I like him too. He's classy and has swagger. Reminds me of the mafia.

I hope its the black guy running in the Ally from the cops



It would be crazy if every one believe it was Ned Luke or the Hispanic Guy or guy Running in the Ally.
But ended up being the Black guy on the Jet Ski.

Rewatching Heat I think whoever bought up the connection was spot on its funny how much Ned Luke's character resembles Neil same hair cut, same dress sense, and seemingly same motives 'get out of the criminal lifestyle and hopefully live a normal life'. Who wants to bet the catalyst of the game's story is something goes horribly wrong after our character tries to pull off one last job possibly a betrayal which would set up a main antagonist similar to Catalina.

For people saying an Older protagonist wouldn't work Neil in Heat looked around the same age as balcony guy and he was still taking care of business in fact I think all the doubters should re-watch the movie not only to see what the game might be like but to see the advantages of having an older more organised protagonist.

It's kind of amazing how some people aren't even open to the idea of Ned Luke's character being a protagonist when he's featured the most in the trailer and even narrates the damn thing. The funny thing is I'm sure Niko didn't have this problem and all he did was walk down a bridge in IV's debut while Ned Luke is actually doing stuff in V's trailer.
