Both Michael and Walter are very similar, and sometimes I even think that's who R* based his character off of. Here's why:
-Both criminals behind their family's back (possible with Michael)
-Both have apprentices. Michael has Franklin and Walter has Jesse.
-Both around the same age.
-Both have a great passion for what they do best.
-Both are egotistical and have short tempers.
-Both of their character arcs are the same, but mixed around just a little bit.
-Both character have a hard time bonding with their sons sons. Michael's son is a pot smoking slacker, and Walter's son has cerebral palsy. So it make sense that they both have a special bond with their fellow apprentices... because they feed off eachother better.
Also, even Jesse has similarities to Franklin.
-Both have mentors
-Both have friends that are holding them back
-Both around the same age
Just seems too close to me. I already know I'm going to enjoy playing as Michael because of these similarities. Also, Ned Luke was following Bryan Cranston (Walter) on Twitter. A bit suspicious imo.
So what do you guys think?
