I'm really excited to play as Trevor and Michael. They both have this "Breaking Bad"
meets "Die Hard" vibe to them.
I will use all 3 protags equally for the story lines sake. I'm sure they all possess fun & unique qualities

Here's a fact. Franklin was created for all the 12 year olds that wanted CJ back. Franklin was suppose to be Hispanic but they change him to black. He has the same goals as both Niko and CJ. There is nothing NEW about him. I don't understand how someone can just ignore facts about this. Judging by his trailer you see he wants to leave the hood ( Like CJ ) and make something of himself ( Like Niko and CJ )

That's not a fact. Niko wanted to live the "American dream", reunite with his cousin, and track down Florian Cravic. CJ goes back to LS to bury his mom, he then stays to bring GSF back to power because Grove st is his home/family.

So far what we know about Franklin is he's a soon to be or already an ex gangster, he has a job, he's an ambitious hustler, an adrenaline junkie. He even has a dog, which by itself could make him the most unique protagonist. How is that anything like CJ or Niko?

And who said he was supposed to be Hispanic?

Niko wanted a better life. The American Dream. CJ stayed to get his brother's respect back. You could tell he didn't care about the hood when he picked up sweet from the prison. He says there's more about life then the hood just like Franklin said.

Trailer 1 said he was Hispanic.

You know I do agree with this. Franklin is there to appease the San Andreas fans nostalgia. He is like CJ in a lot of ways but that's to be expected considering the fact he's showing the gang life side of Los Santos. Yes CJ has already done that but this is like a trip down memory lane and lets players "catch up" on what is going on in the "hood". I'll be clear he's my least favorite character at the moment because of the "been there, done that" vibe but this doesn't mean I don't like him. His story may be better than I expect it to be.

I can see Franklin completely leaving the gang lifestyle midway thru the game
One of his homies are going to get killed and/or locked up. And unlike what the average GTA protagonist he wont fight for redemption, his eyes will open and he will leave gang life behind. Even if that means old friends will become enemies...

He'd be a dumbass to still be gangbanging after pulling bank heist..but who knows..
Franklin seems a lot more mature/intelligent than previous gta protagonist. CJ wasn't a complete idiot but but he did fall for peer pressure. He got pushed around 85% of the time. An easily manipulated soul he was..

Franklins gonna be the true up n coming entrepreneur

Trailer 1 said he was Hispanic.

You could tell CJ did care about the hood when he made it his goal to fight for them throughout the game. Franklin isn't just saying he wants to leave the gang life, it's a fact that he does, because we already know what Franklin goes on to do with Michael and Trevor. CJ probably didn't want the gang life, but it was in his blood and he stayed with GSF.

Niko wanted the American Dream, but he was nowhere near as ambitious as Franklin, which is why GTA IV s a "rags to slightly better rags" story. Franklin will make millions in GTA V.

Trailer 1 didn't say he was Hispanic. You just won't admit you were wrong. A bunch of us knew he was black the entire time. Just go back and read those posts if you want.

I wouldn't say its a fail cause judging by the last post I made you a little upset.

I don't want to double post: BlackNoise CJ still wanted to leave but went back cause he already had everything and if he didn't then his brother would lose all respect for him. Niko was a immigrant to liberty city so he doesn't know as much. While Franklin knows more about the country and gets help from Michael unlike Niko in which hes just a henchman.

Trailer 1 - He looks Hispanic and gtaghost use to post about that alot.

I'm Black, and I'll tell you this, I badly wanted a Hispanic protagonist in GTA V, I wanna see Chicano gangs and Mexican cartels in this game. Ask anyone on here who remembers, I was adamant the guy in the red car was "the Hispanic guy" before the reveals and previews. As we all know this turned out not to be the case, to the disappointment of some of us including myself.

But you are being very silly right now, because Franklin was not created for 12 years olds who are nostalgic about CJ. And there is no real proof that Franklin was ever supposed to be Hispanic. I know you wanted a Hispanic protagonist in place of Franklin, but you don't need to be hating with comments like that. Franklin was never meant to be 'another CJ', not at all. I don't think Rockstar are that naive and shallow to create Franklin for those wanted CJ back, that just sounds implausible and extremely unlikely, and it sounds dumb. Rockstar stated that they wanted to portray a protagonist as "a gangbanger in a post-gangbangin' world", which of course happens to be Franklin. One of the 3 protagonists had to have some kind of connection to street gangs, Los Santos is based on Los Angeles, it would very stupid and suicidal not to do this, LA's criminal underworld is centered mostly on gangs. I'm sorry but that is the way it is.

If anything, I personally think Trevor was 'a waste' of a protagonist. There should have been a Hispanic character in his place, a guy with ties to Mexican drug cartels and Chicano gangs. That would have been much better, a White, Black and Hispanic trio of protagonists. Trevor would have been better suited a non-playable major character in the game, I just don't think he should have been a protagonist.

I don't consider him a Cj. But a middle newbie to professional crime. His struggle isn't that he's stuck doing the things he's doing until he meets mike. But that his old life is hard to let to because he doesent wanna give up on the people that grind it out in the hood. I think he is a essiential piece to the story. Between 3 old guys it would be kind of lame.

Mike comes from the high end society.

Trevor comes from the desert hill meth biker gang riddled county

Franklin comes from the slinging dope and street gang hood area

Best of three worlds that is GTA V

I don't know much about LA but I heard there is more Hispanic gangs then black gangs? If not why does Franklin have to be with Grove Street? I much rather see him on the Ballas side and tell a whole new story. I honestly feel the same about Trevor. He really doesn't interest me at all.

I know you wanted a Hispanic protagonist in place of Franklin, but you don't need to be hating with comments like that. Franklin was never meant to be 'another CJ', not at all. I don't think Rockstar are that naive and shallow to create Franklin for those wanted CJ back, that just sounds implausible and extremely unlikely, and it sounds dumb. Rockstar stated that they wanted to portray a protagonist as "a gangbanger in a post-gangbangin' world", which of course happens to be Franklin. One of the 3 protagonists had to have some kind of connection to street gangs, Los Santos is based on Los Angeles, it would very stupid and suicidal not to do this, LA's criminal underworld is centered mostly on gangs. I'm sorry but that is the way it is.

If anything, I personally think Trevor was 'a waste' of a protagonist. There should have been a Hispanic character in his place, a guy with ties to Mexican drug cartels and Chicano gangs. That would have been much better, a White, Black and Hispanic trio of protagonists. Trevor would have been better suited a non-playable major character in the game, I just don't think he should have been a protagonist.

I don't know much about LA but I heard there is more Hispanic gangs then black gangs? If not why does Franklin have to be with Grove Street? I much rather see him on the Ballas side and tell a whole new story. I honestly feel the same about Trevor. He really doesn't interest me at all.

Hispanic gangs are probably more now outnumber Black gangs in LA, but that is because the general Hispanic population is now much larger than the Black population in the area. However Black gangs still have a very large and influential presence in certain parts of LA, that still has not changed changed - the many different sets of Bloods and Crips are still very much active, alive and well to this day.

Well yeah, that is good and interesting idea you suggested. Franklin could have been made a Balla, that would have been great to see actually.

I'm happy with Franklin and Michael, but I'm just not pleased that Rockstar could have left out a Hispanic protagonist.

Ron will be the most amusing character. It's never the central characters in Rockstar Games that are great (Except for CJ), it's the secondary ones. Also, the publicist should be pretty funny. And I'm expecting good things from Jimmy's storyline.

Expect for Niko you mean as well.

Ahem.. TOMMY VERCETTI.

Trevor Is by far the best. the only reason franklins trailer has the most views is because the song goes so good with his trailer, which is epic.

Here's a fact. Franklin was created for all the 12 year olds that wanted CJ back. Franklin was suppose to be Hispanic but they change him to black. He has the same goals as both Niko and CJ. There is nothing NEW about him. I don't understand how someone can just ignore facts about this. Judging by his trailer you see he wants to leave the hood ( Like CJ ) and make something of himself ( Like Niko and CJ )

I'm Black, and I'll tell you this, I badly wanted a Hispanic protagonist in GTA V, I wanna see Chicano gangs and Mexican cartels in this game. Ask anyone on here who remembers, I was adamant the guy in the red car was "the Hispanic guy" before the reveals and previews. As we all know this turned out not to be the case, to the disappointment of some of us including myself.

the reason Franklin is in the grove street families gang because of events in san andreas, so it would be stupid for him to be in the rollin with the ballas. but rockstar have done something similar with Trevor because he and the Lost MC are at war which i don't really understand i'd rather it would have be the AOD, i really liked the lost in TLAD

Why would it be stupid for him to "roll with the ballas" exactly?
