This ain't Kotaku.
The only place you see women doing GTA things is movies, and it looks stupid there. Niko Bellic could never be filled shoes by a woman. A woman would never be doing his work. She would do other things in criminal organizations, not work like niko does - her job would be different and not fit into GTA and only make women more mad, because the truth hurts, and they won't like the reality of that kind of woman displayed in a video game.
Plus, average gamers is 35 and male. We are too old to mess with mentally and play with our sexuality securities and stuff - we simply won't care, and move on to the next game with sensible development that is believable.
Anyway, there are plenty of games with women stars where it makes sense.
And if you'd pay more attention to the game you are talking about, you would know that fourth slot is for multiplayer, and you will likely be able make a female. But it's not a fourth character, it's a multiplayer avatar.
Seriously, there is a lot to read on this forum alone about this topic. Long story short:
Girls and guys cannot do the same things and they are not equal and hollywood needs to stop giving females the false belief that they can go toe to toe with a man. Men are no better than women, and women are no better than men, but there are things each does better, and in reality/real life there are things each does and does not do. And no woman is CJ or Niko. None. And any who are, are not interesting, and that's why you never see then used in this context - anywhere - gta or not.
Any place you see a woman in a role where in real life only criminal men are that, it is cheesy, stupid, and fake. Video games RELY on being believable far more than any other media to not fail - a female GTA protagonist is not only out of the question, it is something no gta fan - male or female - would ever want.
A true fan of GTA would never want it to turn into sexual propaganda and false representation.
Show me a woman who can be niko bellic, and I'll show you a woman no one enjoys looking at. And who will not live very long.
And the guy above me "oh, kill bill" - that is a perfect example of why a woman will never be used in GTA as a protagonist. That is not a real movie, and it is not realistic at all - it's not supposed to be, but as far as GTA goes, making GTA anything like kill bill with a yellow jumpsuit katanas and a female lead, might as well be that god awful fake sh*t saints row - a woman fits in nicely with that fake sh*t. Fake ass kill bill belongs nowhere near GTA.
And LOL, no woman on this planet is like that - only in their heads - and they get beat up when they believe it's real. Period.
GTA starring a woman would be one mission long when she gets beat the f*ck up and pissed on, that is the reality of it. The reality. If you do not agree, then congratulations, you are sheltered from the underground. GTA is not for feminists who really just get women suped up to get beat up. And never will be.
