I'll be the first to admit I hate franklin because he's a niggy. Blacks are the first to blame the white man because of their inadequacies, They have a smaller brain than caucasians and can't accept the fact that they're privileged monkeys given permission to be free. If you have a problem w/ that come at me bro.

...How in the world did Franklin's trailer remind them of SA? It had almost zero similarity, other than it starring Black people (with very few of them wearing green). IGN is the weakest.

I guess they all bring reasons why you would like them and why you wouldn't like them. I love that they aren't one dimensional characters. IGN makes the mistake of hiring people who only care about their own opinions, the majority of people love Franklin and don't like Trevor or Michael. Personally I enjoy using Franklin more for his driving skills. Trevor is who I use to go on rampaging in the city, maxing out stars blowing stuff up. And Michael is... the guy I use to progress the story I guess. Not knocking Michael, his story is really great but I don't see him slaughtering thousands of innocent people like I could see Trevor doing.

 

...what I like to get immersed when I play games.

Franklin is the worst character.

There is no reason for him to even be a playable character or be in the game.

I actually thought the Franklin and Lamar missions were the best. I really hope there is some DLC that focuses mostly on the Grove Street Family and Ballas.

I wasn't too interested in Franklin's character based on the trailers but to my surprise he was perhaps the most likeable of the bunch. I also liked the setup of him trying to get out of ghetto while pretty much everyone he knew from there was critical of his path and wondered if Franklin had forgotten his "roots".

 

However when Franklin was talking with Lamar there were so many, niggas, bros, homies and motherf*ckers thrown around that it just felt ridiculous. A real shame. I could not imagine watching The Wire if the black characters spoke like that. It would be just as ridiculous. Granted, I'm sure there are fellows who go around speaking like that but maybe, just for the sake of not drawing attention to the way they spoke, Franklin and Lamar's dialogue could have been toned down a notch on the "nigga/motherf*cker" department.

 

F*cks were flying pretty often for Michael and Trevor too but maybe just a little bit too much. It didn't take away from the moment very often.

 

And for absolute clarity let's be clear: I have no problem with cursing or any words. It's just that dialogue needs to sound natural, not forced. Perfect example, The Sopranos (or The Wire). There's a ton of cursing in both but it never feels out of place.

Other than some of the conversations with Lamar dropping the N-bomb every 5 seconds I like Franklin more than I thought I would.

The student/mentor relationship with Michael really makes him shine. I'm not sure I'd put him on the same level as say Tommy and Niko, but he's hardly the worst protagonist.

CJ and Luis fight for that honour in my eyes. Franklin's decent IMO.

Maybe because his culture, species , age and even personality isn't very similar to Michael nor Trevor.
He also doesn't have past relations with neither of Michael and Trevor, so this makes him somewhat

Why are people crying out racism?

Racism is wrong, but at least it is better than silent racism. If you dont like something hecause of race, at least give credit to them for admitting. Its better than the guys saying "I hate Franklin b/c blah blah blah" while trying to hide racist intentions.

Sorry if I wrote too much, excuse me but does it look very bad When Brad also comes out of prison? He has past

Has to change many parts of the story.
Maybe it was good to have Franklin spend more time with Lamar and the homies in Strawberry, not just
Ignoring them and increasing the distance from them by the day.
Ignore the story and I'm just saying they write a story which has Brad in it as a main protagonist.

EDIT:

Yeah, but sometimes only one thing like the appearance of black people in a trailer can remind us of San Andreas, man!

Brad as a protagonist ? Get real.

 

Franklin was nothing special, although i use him the most. My best moment using him was when he kills Trevor, so not everyone hates him for that, believe me, many liked him for that.

Wow do you believe that all blacks generalize all whites and not vice versa? Wow and I thought abortion was evil but sometimes it helps to prevent dumbf*cks like you crawling out your butthole with generalizations, bro.

Franklin kind of had a good plot. Nigga tryin to leave ghetto life. Stretch turning sides afta leavin jail and setting up fo Franklin and Lamar Davis, relationship with Denise and that crackhead bitch i didnt recall the name, workin for Simeon.. it could have been a good story, really. The problem is they "shrink" it to fit 6 f*cking 9 missions. He really have a good story, like every other protag. He is just umderwritten.
I can say numerous good characters in this game that wasnt well written after all and became ridiculous and non believeable chars. Exemples? Martin Madrazo. f*ck, i almost cry when i see such great plots and ideas could be so bad written like that!

I don't think he was hated so much. But I think Rockstar could of created a fully-fletched background of his past gang life. The hoof never feels alive in the game, to me. I feel as if the game never climaxed to the three protagonists meeting. I think a further look at their previous life would if been great - example; street parties with Frank, club brawls and drugs with Trev, family problems and such with Michael, etc, etc.
