Do you guys not know what a protagonist is? It more closely means "good guy" than "main character." Anyone who helps the main character in any way is a protagonist.


Anyway, my point is that there's no reason to think we'll have multiple main characters. But ironically you're all right in your speculation because you don't know what words mean.

"A protagonist (from the Greek πρωταγωνιστής protagonistes, "one who plays the first part, chief actor"[1]) is the main character (the central or primary personal figure) of a literary, theatrical, cinematic, or musical narrative, which ends up in conflict because of the antagonist and with whom the audience is intended to most identify."
-Wikipedia

There are already several topics discussing this.

You're kind of right in a way and also... wrong.
Protagonist is the Main Characters
Characters who Help the Protagonist are the Confidants/Supporters.
The Antagonist Is the Main Villian

So you can say.
P - CJ
S- Ryder, Ceaser, etc
A - Officer Tenpenny

Let me remember English class. Ok. A protagonist is usually the main character whose point of view you're experiencing things with (usually a good guy) and antagonist is the exact opposite and is the "bad" one that the protag goes up against in a story. I think everyone here knows what context we were using the word "protagonist" in.

Don't be a smartass -- the protagonist is the MAIN character in which the positive energy is centered towards. For example, in GTAIV, Niko is the Protagonist, and Roman would be just a side character I believe.

With a post like that, it's obvious that you're just trying to insight something.

Surely, no one could be that thick to think that Protagonist means "good guys"

You might be right [I think you are wrong] on the meaning of protagonists in the real world but, this is GTA forums. By protagonists we mean the guy you play with. Like CJ or Niko. Ever heared a guy on the street say a word you did not understand? Rappers come to mind. They are talking English but, it is THEIR English. They understand it but you do not. We understand what others mean when they use the word protagonist.

Do you know how you sound like? "Hey guys! You are all right! It is because I know a small detail in English that makes you right! How smart am I? Am I not so smart?! TELL ME?!"

That how people see you. Just saying so you do not look like an ass next time smile.gif

Advice, not an insult. I have to say this line in every post because anyone over reacts like a monkey on fire FFS.

ironically, the OP is wrong about the meaning of the word PROTAGONIST but is correct in stating every GTA had multi-protags (except GTA 2)

GTA 1 - multiple protags
GTA 2 - none
GTA III - Claude, Toni Cipriani
VC - Tommy V., Vic Vance
SA - CJ and co-op character (lol)
GTA IV - Niko, Johnny, Luis

ironic isn't it... also off-topic, Denise in GTA IV looks an awful lot like Denise from SA, hmmmm....
