Story wise Niko would kill Cj. Gameplay wise CJ would destroy Niko.

Weapon wise CJ would win.
But when it comes to intelligence Niko owns.

Even though San Andreas is my favourite game of all time I think Niko is far better than CJ as a protagonist.

Niko is much more in-depth, badass, and has a better back-story. In my opinion CJ would have worked well as a sort of side-kick whole playing the game as Sweet with Sweet's attitude in-game.

CJ was a little bit of a pussy for my liking. He seemed to have gotten over-emotional over almost anything, and if he didn't he would just stand around saying 'Damn, damn'.

CJ is probably my third favourite after Niko (1) and Tommy (2).

Niko would tear CJ apart.

As characters, Niko is superior, but CJ was a good guy.

I can agree with this.

He got himself into his mess, in the trailer he said 'maybe here things will be different' and then a couple hours after getting into Liberty he's killing Albanian loan sharks for the hell of it.

You don't get to complain if you started it.

As close as CJ and San andreas are to my heart. I think Niko is the answer and you can't argue with it.

CJ hardly had a personality.

The fact Niko shows hypocrisy is what makes him relatable IMO. We're all hypocrites at times.

I think it makes him more human that he shows real flaws in his personality. Besides I've never felt it's to the extent people describe.

In essence Vic is much more of a hypocrite than Niko. Atleast Niko accepts who he is and doesn't try to convince himself he's sweet and innocent.

He comes across as emotionally/physchologically damaged and I don't blame him with all the sh*t he went through which is probably the worst any protagonist has had to deal with.

Anyway CJ aint got nothing on my man Niko. wink.gif

Well it looks like only 1 person agrees with you so far. I have 16 people by my side who share my opinion. tounge.gif

The only good thing about CJ is his iniials rhyme with something I like to get every weekend. ph34r.gif

Ah, my 2 favorite protagonists. I just can't choose. CJ is the funniest and has a great personality but Niko was really likable and had a better story.

"Where are all the homies at?... damn man, damn".

Niko is more of a well produced character rather than CJ. Both are great protagonists but when you compare them side to side, you can see aspects of CJ which are poor. Obviously, Carl was a whimp as a child and let his brother die but he did eventually proove to everyone that he is powerful. He does make poor decisions, but so can Niko with the alternative endings.

Niko was much more of a bold protagonist with a very strong, powerful and meaning backstory. Simply, he had plans and them plans were made correctly to get what he wanted whilst CJ didn't have a clear idea on what he wanted, and he ate his way around his desire but Niko had a certain direction he wanted to follow and achieve. Niko does it for me, mainly because his backstory.

I've never disliked CJ, but in retrospect, he's one of my least favourite protagonists. Niko on the other hand is my second favourite after Vercetti.

So that'll be Niko then.

Niko. I found that I could relate to him more then I could CJ. I mean, with CJ, you start as a petty thug and by the end; he is flying military jets around and and stealing prototype jetpacks from military bases. Unfortunately, that doesn't really do it for me (as fun as those things are as) as the storyline doesn't really fit with the character.

Agreed. I don't know, but I find Niko far more relatable than CJ and it's probably for the reasons you stated. Because the storyline in GTA IV is more down to earth and doesn't place Niko into highly ridiculous situations (such as breaking into military bases) he comes across more average Joe just trying to survive thus the relatable connection is there IMO whereas CJ is a bit like putting Forest Gump into the The Expendables.

On the surface CJ is a good guy and I don't think he's terrible persay. Niko just posesses more qualities I like than CJ does.

CJ is still better than that knob Luis, but that's for another time. tounge.gif

Infact he'd be the main protagonist in "TE 2/II" smile.gif

You guys are missing the topic......

It's asking "who is your favorite ", not "who is better or has better qualities"

I think we're perfectly on topic tounge.gif . We are basing our decisions on our favourite of the two protagonists based on their qualities and the fact that Niko has the better, more lifelike qualities (in our opinion) that people can relate to more as opposed to CJ who can be difficult at times to relate to for the reasons mentioned above.

But it's a comparison poll. You worded it as "CJ vs Niko". Naturally we're going to compare. tounge.gif

I think you're just jealous more of us like Niko. biggrin.gif

Thats comparing....honestly cant a polls have favorites without "comparing who is better".


(@ Miami.)
