Am I the only one who thinks like that? I mean, from what we've seen Franklin look the same damn thing, physically & mentally. From what we saw in trailer #2, all we could see is Franklin crying about the fact that his homie is selling dope & throwing up gang signs + he's arguing with his girlfriend just like Luis was doing with his mom. (And his brother/her sister Online)

I'm not trying to be pessimist, I'm sure I'll be a huge Franklin fan, but from what I saw/read lately it's looking like we're going to have a Luis #2.

What do you think?

Give R* some credit. Yes, Luis & Franklin have managed to climb out of the ghetto & both have friends that try to bring them down to their level. Both have bosses that run legit businesses but are pretty dodgy. Actually they do sound alike. I'm sure Franklin will differentiate himself from Luis throughout the story. R* are better than cookie cutter characters.

What do you think?

Yeah I was thinking the same thing unfortunately and imo it's a garbage idea cause Luis could've takin control of northwood/washington heights and been a kingpin but instead he'd rather shun his friends and what could've been a very profitable and powerful position, and yeah I get that it's harder to do things in the criminal underworld nowadays but there still are crime kingpins.

Franklin on the other hand seems like his character is going to be a complete waste of oppurtunity on r*'s part considering the fact he's an "ex street gangster.)

Why do people always seem to think that they are racist just because they are saying stuff like that ?

And where do I call him racist? I just asked if he thinks so because the only thing he had in common is his color.

Luis did some work as a criminal but alone for a boss and not in a gang, also he worked in the business of the night, Franklin doesn't look he is into that sort of business. Also Luis was 25 in TBGT, GTAIV era was in 2008, that would make Franklin 30 years, and they said he is mid 20's. So just for the age it makes that impossible.

Also they don't look physically alike, not their face, nor their body build and also Luis accent and voice is very different from Franklin. So the only thing that makes them remind each other is their skin color, nothing else.

That and they have both the same desire to move up to bigger things in life than gangbanging & both have friends trying to bring them down to that level again.

The only difference here is that Luis is looking to get legit with Tony's clubs, while Franklin obviously has no qualms about commiting heists as long as he gets payed.

Right... he is Asian, thats why people believe Franklin could be Luis, he have bright skin right?

Buy some glasses, even if he isn't "African" he is different from Michael or Trevor, I mean Trevor is also a bad ass, and was in war and also have a crazy past, so why not saying he is Niko Bellic? dozingoff.gif

Of course they're going to be the same in different aspects, but probably not enough for you to notice. Dan Houser is a magnificent writer, and I see no way possible that he would allow for that to happen.

I mean, going by that logic - you could say Michael and Tommy are practically the same person. Its just not that ethical. tounge.gif

Dominican isn't a race. Its a Nationality/Ethnicity. Most Dominicans have African ancestry making them black or part black.

AND Franklin reminds me nothing of Luis tbh

Wow a thread that started stating that one of the new characters is an old one, became another race discussion, when the main point here that COULD mean they were the same was their skin color... so many philosophers in these forums, too bad they don't have any sense or a clue about what is being discussed other then formal details.

If it was said Franklin was somehow based in Luis but i a different context, ya that would make sense, anything else but that is crossing the line of logic.

That's call being a hater, straight up.

Luis was my fav character from IV, I don't really see anything wrong with him, was just always tough, physically and mentally.

OP, No, not even.

Sorry about that, lol. I just don't like him because he doesn't have a reason to do the things he is doing like Niko and Johnny do, he is also kind of a douche because he thinks he is such a big shot. confused.gif

I don't think he is like Franklin one bit.
