I think it's a great idea personally. It almost compensates for having an open map.

I'd imagine it'll be Michael>Trevor>Franklin.

I can imagine Michel being the first playable character, and then he meeting up with Trevor with the cut-scene in Trailer two where Trevor says "..Back in town baby..." and then later Meeting with Franklin on the beach, with the cut-scene where Franklin ask direction from Micheal, who is sitting on a fence.

Michael is the central protagonist. We've known this, so it only makes sense to start with him. Anyone who wants to start out with Franklin is probably 12 and just wants SA2.

Im quite sure you was referring to me because Im the only one who stated that I wanted to play with Franklin first.First invalid point you made was about the age if I was 12 I would have been 3 when San Andreas released.However your Second point is very accurate GTA V in my opinion is San Andreas 2.Same location,Gangs,Features.Everyone has different things that they like about the game and Franklin is mine.

Well you sure do type like you're 12, so..

And why would you want it to be SA2? Don't you want a fresh experience? New graphics doesn't mean fresh.

What? It seems to be the most likely sequence of how they'll unlock.

lol... i could see this coming a mile away... So really though what made you come to that conclusion? I actually think it will be michael first follwed by him meeting franklin during before/after his therapist session. Trevor being ex military i see him being last for michael to get in contact with when we arrive at are more complex heist when we will need someone skilled at flying.

Just the way Michael introduces him to Trevor in trailer 2 makes me feel Trevor will be before Franklin.

This is a great idea. I think this will be a good way for the player to get familiar with the game and slowly be brought into the world of GTA V, rather than R* throwing the multi-protagonist feature at us like "BAM here's three characters! GO!" *BRAIN IMPLOSION*

I'm placing bets that Michael will be the first to control. Perhaps early on in the game we will have a choice with Michael which other protagonist we would like to meet first.

Michael seems to speak rather fondly of franklin when introducing him to trevor so i got the impression they had known each other for some time at that point. Then again we could have been doing missions with both before they actually meet each other so i dont know, now that i think about it more, it could go eitherway imo.

Sounds like they are only doing it to properly introduce us to the protagonists. After that, its open season. I think it would be cool to do it the way Rockstar did back in November for the GI preview.

Micheal was also the narrator in the first trailer and most of us though he was the main character. Second though was Franklin and we knew nothing about Trevor back then. That is why I think Micheal will be the first playable character.
I remember when the artwork about Trevor on the ATM and speedboat was revealed, most of us thought he was some bad side-character. Lots of people referred to him as the ugly one.
If I remember correctly, then one of the reviews mentioned, that Michel and Trevor are old friends(or was it Franklin). Thats why I see the order like that Michael-Trevor-Franklin.

Is that website some giant image or something? I cannot translate it for the life of me because it won't let me highlight a thing.

Google Chrome mang.

I'm betting it's Michael we start as for multiple reasons. First off, the very first trailer is centered around Michael, with him narrating and telling his backstory. The second one also starts out with him speaking (as I presume) to Franklin when he says "If you want my opinion.. Give the sh*t up". Since they have said Franklin is conflicted and trying to get out of the hood life, or whatever. There is a scene in the 2nd trailer where Franklin asks Michael where some beach house is, like they don't know each other. Then, he mentions at the end of the 2nd trailer "This is my best friend, Trevor-so obviously they know each other." I'd guess it goes Michael first, then you meet Trevor, then Franklin. Just judging by how the trailers are themed and some of the cutscenes.

I'm fine with this.. I like how they are going it, because I think it's really going to develop the story and protagonists like they say. I'd rather get each character's background and get a feel for their storys. Can't wait for this game!!

It will be Michael, Franklin then Trevor. That is the order we always see them in during cutscenes, artwork even the 3rd trailer named them in that order.

I think you'll play as Michael first then you get to beach and give Franklin and Lemmar directions to the house where Franklin reposes the car. Michael witnesses this and asks Franklin to join his crew.

I can't see how people find this 'new' information. We have known this from the start. Michael is the lead-character in the game. You have to unlock Trevor and Franklin. It was all hinted from the beginning.

All Three Main Characters Won't be Playable From the Start
Posted by Ryan at 15:42. Category: General

Recently, Rockstar North President The Benz conducted an interview with the French Gaming website Jeuxactu. Now today, thanks to Offical Xbox Magazine, we have some English snippits of the interview!

We want to surprise people with very intense missions from the start. The pace of the game is much faster than any of its predecessors. From the beginning, we want to show off the new game mechanics while creating intense, action-packed gameplay, to capture the player's attention immediately.


Unlike previous GTA's where main characters such as CJ from San Andreas or Niko were newcomers to the city, Michael, Franklin, and Trevor are not.

They already have contacts, they are integrated with the world and lead a busy life - these characteristics should give players a sense of immediate and total immersion. That said, all three main characters won't be playable from the start. We want to give the player the opportunity to get to know the three characters individually, and explore the world as each of them, and it would not have been possible if all three had been available from the start.


Found on GTA 5 net

That's good. It's better to have an introduction to the characters before jumping right in.

You know what these GTA games are like. You get a tutorial mission for more or less everything in the game; and that will have to include the character switching.

Secondly, there's also the issue of the narrative. The storytelling will probably work best by starting with one character and use that character to introduce you to the other two as part of the story. Basic stuff really.

I think It's a good thing, we need a little sense of progression otherwise it would get too complicated at the beggining of the game.

Tbh the game would flow in a manner that is best comparable to human feces if everywhere and everyone was unlocked from the very beginning.
