| It got brushed aside the quickest because whilst the action in the trailer was great, it was the least interesting from a story point of view. The Franklin character is by far the least interesting going by those three trailers. But the Franklin trailer made up for it by making the action so good. That trailer makes Franklin's story feel like a retread of San Andreas honestly. We've seen it before. To be honest it feels like the only reason Franklin is there is to appeal to CJ/San Andreas nostalgia. That isn't necessarily a bad thing, but there are legit reasons many people was the least interested in Franklin's trailer. It isn't because we're all "nerdy white guys" or "know/care nothing about hip hop culture". I love that theme and loved San Andreas. But I already played a game centered around that, so naturally the other two trailers did more for me and have me more interested since they're something new. |
GTA 4 was sort of a trip down to memory lane as well.
GTA 4's dark theme/atmosphere and story was similar to GTA 3's.
But the backgrounds of the characters had very little to no similarities.
Franklin's story will only be similar to GTA SA and not a repetition in contrast to what the majority thinks of him.
Franklin wants to get out of the Gang Life and his low-life friends keeps pulling him back.
While CJ was ultimately pulled back into the gang life when he found his family and gang in a state of disarray.
CJ stayed in the gang life as a whole, and it seems he had no intention of leaving it despite unbelievably making his way to the top.
Franklin however, left the gang in order to pursue his ambition of having a much better fortune. Instead of getting low incomes from drug dealing he goes out of the gang to pursue a much higher income.
