Hey guys, I've just watched the 1st trailer again for the first time in months, thinking that maybe with everything we know now, some of the things in it would make more sense, and I realized there's no trace of Trevor's existence at all. If you look at the heist scene, where the three guys should be the three protagonists, one can clearly identify Franklin in the left and Michael in the right:

But, shouldn't the guy in the middle be Trevor? You can tell he's not, only by looking at his hair. That guy is just a placeholder, your stereotypical white adult male that was put there because they knew they would make three protags. Now, I remember that in the GI article, Trevor was said to be the last one added, so I would assume that at the point the 1st trailer was made, that character was still not created. It's funny to note how, with a 1st trailer perspective, he's just kind of a foreign guy to the game, and by November 2011 he wasn't even in it. Which reveals that, by that time, the storyline wasn't created yet (how could it be with a protag missing!), so it must have been finished only recently.

On a side note, how can it be that they could make the whole scripts and coding for the missions only between the completion of the storyline plot and the release? Isn't that too rushed for what should be the best videogame plot ever?

Post your thoughts cool.gif

Dude there was a lot of detail missing from that year old trailer. And how do you clearly know that's Franklin? Because he is black? You are ignorant man. They make aesthetic changes to the game until release- atleast rockstar does.

So many detail missing that he passes from being almost bald to having so much hair? I don't think so. And yes he's Franklin just because he's black, because that picture shows the protags, and black + protag = Franklin.

@Sizeway proof?

no that is not a beta version of trevor.... it is another character.
Just because you see 3 people in the mission does not mean i is 3 protagonists....
Rockstar did say many missions will be single protagonists alone, 2 protagonists, or all 3. In the screen you provided it is a mission with only 2 of the protagonists. Besides trailer one was mainly los santos based. Trevor lives outside los santos in the desert surrounding areas.

Might seem a little dumb, but who was the 'hispanic' man seen running in the first trailer? Did we ever find out?

Its obvious that they had decided that Franklin and Michael were going to be the two leads at the time of the first trailer but then they came up with Trevor and shoe horned him into the story for the second trailer.

Yeah. He first appeared in that artwork or the screenshot of him on the jet ski. At first everyone was like "who the f*ck is the hillbilly?" Now he is one of everyone's favorites. I had no idea what they were doing with the story until they created his character.

It was going to be built around Michael teaching Franklin about the life of crime and how to reach the top, then they shoehorned in Trevor as an afterthought because they thought two wasn't enough, which is why you can't see him in anything before that jetski pic or the first trailer. I can guarantee Trevor will have not as much to do with the overarching plot as M and F will.

I think he first appeared a couple of months earlier, in the August screens, firing at a helicopter.

Also, while we might not have seen him directly in trailer 1, we might have seen some hints, like that biplane dusting that weed farm, or that car that had been set on fire.

There is no one in the driver seat of that van you f*cking retard. And i highly doubt that you are going to be stealing sh*t with a bunch of different people. C'mon these guys are smart and work together just like Neil McCauly's crew in the movie Heat.

My Opinion about this :

This is an old memories mission, as you know. They were did a heist in the past
So, i think they looks pretty different

"I wanted to retire from what I was doing,
You know, from that, that line of work,
Be a good guy for once, a family man,"

-Trailer 1

I think it's explained in GI too sarcasm.gif

My second Opinion, the character is still in developing phase tounge2.gif

(Btw this is my opinion, so CMIIW )

You are a stupid idiot, there is someone in the driver's seat so next time shut the f*ck up and check before you are saying something.

Ignoring the fact that 3 men jump out of the back, who do you think is driving the van? That means there were 4 people featured in this heist. Does that add up to you? The reason you're not seeing Trevor is because there are more people here than just the protags. Maybe Trevor is waiting on the roof with a chopper or something. Maybe he's in the driver's seat. Maybe he's in the passenger seat. We don't know. Don't assume anything.

Have yall ever seen a f*cking heist movie? That van could have been 'parked' in front of that store for a few minutes just as a front. I didn't assume sh*t. But I am smart enough to be able see that there is only three people in the van during the first trailer. I would post the link to the slowed video for you dumb f*cks but i am on an Iphone.

Those are the same people that produce the "oh-so-funny" le meme faces and comics. I wouldn't listen to any opinion they have of us.

As for the whole "where's Trevor" argument, there's simply no way to tell. We'll have to wait until the game releases or more footage is shown of the cutscene. You guys are wasting words.

Who cares about what people say about this forum? If this is the forum that you belong to: talking about a video game. That is an extremely sad story. And as for 'wasting words', this is a forum dumbass.
