Not quite sure you got my point. I'm not complaining about Franklin being present in the game, the very opposite in fact - adds to a more diverse and potential laden campaign. I'm rather explaining why his story interests me less than the other too considering it so far feels nothing fresh to me. I just don't get the sudden burst in popularity after his trailer other than it giving people a sense of nostalgia to the SA days, which again strengthens my point that so far, Franklins narrative is nothing new.
If you guys love the hood aspect, great. Again, it's nothing to do with that, but rather my interest in something original playing part to me finding his story less exciting.
Okay, that is a valid enough explanation to clear that up. I now get what you mean
But on the other hand, let's be fair here. Regardless of what info we know about him, we still don't know Franklin's full story yet, so making assumptions about it being unoriginal is still a bit premature in my view. In any case, just because his story or character maybe appear to be unoriginal, it don't automatically mean it will be a bit boring or less enjoyable. Many times people just want more of the same but bigger, better, more polished and much more improved, GTA is no different - this has been demonstrated with the fact that Franklin's popularity has surged and rapidly multiplied after Franklin's trailer was released. It just shows that many GTA fans still just want some classic, fast-paced crime/gang action, the kind of stuff that made GTA great in the first place - I believe that is probably the reason why so many people on here now like Franklin the most.
Not everyone who plays GTA may be very interested in or keen on originality, this mid-life crisis/family thing with Michael might not even work, and in fact many, people might find that theme very boring in itself. Some people might just want a pure criminal/gangster and see that kind of thing as 'soft'. As for Trevor, yeah he's extremely wild, uncontrollable and crazy which is quite new for a GTA protagonist - but then some people may quickly find his story repetitive and tedious, some people may want more substance and depth to a story than just pure mayhem and violence.
However I personally believe all 3 protagonists will have amazing, interesting and very enjoyable characters and storylines, regardless of my preference for Franklin. It's still to early to say what will be the best, most interesting or most exciting part of this game. We should all just fully appreciate the variety that is on offer here.
