I didn't exactly like him, but he wasn't that bad. I think LC is a perfect city to have an immigrant protag, but I think Niko was really boring and dull. It was also annoying whenever he was accepting a job, all he'd ever say is "if it pays, I'm in", and other unoriginal money-related things. I wish R* was a little more creative with his dialogue. Other than that, I thought he was alright.

Niko is pretty great, nice sarcasm/wit, and he knew the score when it came to most things.

Can't say he's the best protagonist, since that's Tommy Vercetti for me, but Niko is still damned grand.

Haha nope. Except for being funny he was one of the most boring protagonists of any GTA game. He had no flair, and he was too calm and cynical.

No flair? Too calm? Name another protagonist who rages like Niko in the heat of battle. Ever seen the pissed off facial expression he exhibits? wink.gif

One of the best characters ever conceived, and best GTA protagonist to date. He is the epitome of Badass, and while the three protagonists of V look alright, Niko, with his skills and experience, could easily f*** all three of them up on his own.

I think Niko is the best protagonist of the series. Yes, he's a badass who doesn't tolerate sh*t, but he's more than that. He is the deepest, most emotional and most human character. Despite being a murderer, cold-blooded and borderline sociopathic, he's stalwart in his principles and overall commands a degree of respect for his practicality and genuine personality.

Niko was pretty awesome, he just felt the most real. Was he a bit hypocritical in his actions sometimes? Sure. Did he tend to get greedy in the second half of the story? Yep. Niko believes what he is told, does as he is asked or ordered, and views the consequences as something for which he is not responsible. You could tell he cared fiercely for his friends and loved ones.

Without a doubt that's what made him so complex and realistic. His dialogues were really deep and it seemed like he had the most layers to his personality out of all the main characters.

Plus hailing from Croatia myself, it was really cool to see the balkans represented through his character lol

I think the fact he's hypocritical is what makes him feel human. It's not an ingame fault R* overlooked like some people make it seem. It was deliberate on R*'s behalf as far I'm concerned.

I love that he often contradicts himself and has conflictions. He doesn't feel like a typical video character.

I love that he has flaws like any real person would, it's because of that I felt a closer connection with him over any of the other protagonists.

Niko is the best GTA protag, but the best R* protagonist (and the best protagonist of all time) is definitely John Marston. You can't deny that.

John and Niko are both great protag. Belic make me laugh and Marston make me cry.
