i don't try to be racist, even though this post really isn't racist, but i noticed things


blacks and hispanic users on this forum tend to want to play a street-based sort of thug/gangsta type character like CJ...


white users tend to want to play a more organized/mafia type gangster.. guys like Tommy Vercetti and Toni Cipriani




now im not saying there arn't whites that want to play street thugs or blacks and hispanics that want to play mafia

but just generally it seems that way

I'm a white guy who has no connection whatsoever with the hispanic/black community but CJ is my favorite GTA protag with Tommy.

It's not racist, but I don't think it's true. Most of my friends (All white except for an asian, and a black acquaintance) who first played San Andreas were disappointed with the more organized crime in IV whereas I loved the S inlove.gif t out of both of them.

Naturally the few who are exempt from this will post negatively. But you are, of course, mostly correct. I think, for the most part, we just want someone of the same race as ourselves.

Don't say thug life without knowing it's full meaning dude. Sure you can use it as a joke but sometimes it just becomes overused and stupid. Thug Life has nothing to do with being a gangster.

It's just the preference of everyone. Anyone prefers something else.
I don't care as what kind of character the GTA5 protag will be, aslong the protag won't be a stupid wannabe mafioso/gangster/idiot.
But gotta be honest I prefer something in direction mafioso guy or something what Niko Bellic is.

The same posters you described op are the ones who cannot go to the shops and purchase the game without parental aid.

I want a thug because higher-ups aren't supposed to be out in the street doing dirty work.

I never claimed I wanted to play as a gang banger. and it seems like you're just trying to start a flame war on here.

As a white person, all I really want is a damn good and interesting protagonist. If the protagonist can make you laugh, then he's already half likeable.

if ghettos were a big thing in GTA V i'd prefere to play as a gang member like CJ in SA.
but in general it doesn't really matter. R* disappointed me only once. gta IV

I think you might have a false assumption friend. I'm white, and I'm hoping to god that it's a rags to riches, street story. If I start out too rich on a game it's hard to relate to the MC, so I'd rather start out with nothing at all. That's why I loved SA.

so you rather play an unorganized street thug then a white organized gangster

I'm White and I don't really care what the main character is, I just really do not want some gangsta type story. I just can't take it seriously at all.

It just seems that way. We all have our preferences, and I highly doubt our races have anything to do with the races we want to play as.

EDIT: I'm white and I'm hoping for the white guy. Nothing racist, I just can't take the gangsta storyline very seriously

This whole topic is troll food; there's no way to accurately draw those conclusions... we don't know the demographics of those on these forums and you're just plain wrong. I'm an inner city hispanic 21 year old who's dying to play as the old white balcony guy, no connection whatsoever.
