It seems as if with the HD era games, R* are trying to cover ground with types of protagonists they haven't done before (e.g. How bikers hadn't been covered until TLaD). So, wondering, what type(s) of protagonist would you like to see Rockstar cover in future GTA games, that they haven't done before?

Personally I would like to see an Irish Hoodlum, similar to Packie, in the future.

Definitely a Hispanic gang member (something similar to Cesar or T-Bone). I know there were rumours of this with the whole Chico Vialpando thing with GTA 5 but if really like to see it applied to a GTA game.

Either that or a Chinese Triad gang. They tried this with Chinatown Wars but it just didn't cut it. I want a full on Triad, not a small time gang of thugs controlling a couple alleyways. Playing as Wu Zi Mu would be awesome (if he wasn't blind, that is haha). biggrin.gif

I've always thought a Middle Eastern protagonist would be something different and interesting. You could create a back story that his family was killed during the first Gulf War or something.

A man that has everything at the the beginning of the game and then loses everything and he has to get everything back. I've always wanted a story like that. I guess Michael in GTA V will be like that but I don't think he loses everything.

Scarface: The World Is Yours is pretty much that. wink.gif

Dont take this the wrong way, but i wanna see a good looking dude i can relate too.

Not some big head gang banger with the name of a cartoon, a grandpa and a meth head.


I either want a good looking dude as the player character, or a female.

If gta 5 were to have a dlc like episodes from liberty city, this could work very nicely seeing as there are pretty well established Persian/ Iranian communities in real life Los Angeles .

I've got it, what about a Travis Bickle-esque character? one with an identity disorder who really believes he's making the world a better place while he's really doing harm?

Also sorts of storylines open up then

I've got a feeling Trevor might be that way.

I want a woman protagonist. Seriously it's 2013 and we still have not had one of those since GTA 1 in 1997.

Something like a known Russian protagonist I bet. They've done Niko Bellic already to certify his Serbian nationality, so maybe why not Russian protagonist this time. Since Russian Mafia always has a vital role in every GTA series, sure that would make a good idea that Russians aren't always enemies like Dimitri and Ray.

This is actually actually a great idea. Because, pretty much every GTA protagonist has come from nothing to having everything. But doing that the other way around would be interesting.

Something no one has ever thought about before. an Israeli-jewish man who was in military when he was 20, but he was kidnapped by muslim-arabs (literally the Israel-haters) for a few years and gets released 2 years later, but as a sick person, a crazy one like trevor. the real campaign begins where he gets out from the FIA (Liberty city sounds like a good place for such a character) and meets his friend whom he met while he trained in the marine-Idf combined training. he then starts slowly to get to the underworld and becomes a contract killer.

Instead discussing about different ethnicities, I was thinking a GTA game with a police protagonists that isn't corrupt but has to take drastic measures.

Like James Murdoch in The Black Cat.
