I'm a woman, and I can tell you that most female gamers actually prefer to play as male protagonists in video games, so I don't know what this 'feminist' is talking about lol. There's no reason to complain, GTA is not misogynistic; it's satirical, witty, even crude, but there's no reason for women to complain simply because one of the lead characters is not female. Frankly, I don't think a female protagonist would work in GTA, or even be that much fun to play as...

If we played as a women, all of our missions would be in a kitchen and at book clubs..

This, they need to shut the f*ck up and stop talking bullsh*t, now every f*cking thing that exists must have a female lead involved, gimme a break.

If the main protagonist was a woman, would it still be possible to sleep with a prostitute and then bludgeon her to death for a refund?

Maybe if we stop listening to feminazis they'll just get bored and go back to the kitchen.

Speak for yourself, nobody listens to them... Except white knights, nerds and homosexuals.

Rampant misogyny and insecurity in this thread aside, real and true equality would mean that R* can express their talent in whatever way they choose. If they decide on 3 male protagonists, that's what they want.

That's true, female protags doesn't belong to GTA, I enjoyed playing with female protags though in games like Resident evil 3 and of course Tomb raider.

Please, disagreeing with feminism is not misogyny.

You don't sleep with them in GTA games, just get sexual services, so I'm guessing you technically could if the female character was a lesbian or bisexual.

In any case, I don't mind either way, as long as a character is well done the gender is irrelevant to me. I do plan on creating a female character in Online though.

I don't know, I probably wouldn't like a single female protag, but If R* plans to stick with a triumvirate of protags, playing as a female protag might be alright with two other male characters. It wouldn't surprise me if R* tries it at some point. But, as long as some women think they're entitled to infringing on a developers creative vision, I won't support any of it.

it's ridiculous. it's already been pointed out, female gamers usually like to play male characters or even better, they simply don't care. same goes for pretty much everyone else i guess - as long as it somehow makes sense. a female protag probably would only be for people who wouldn't even consider playing a gta game in the first place, no matter the protagonist. sooo..yeah..they're just using gta's popularity to gain some attention, that's all ;)

The annoying thing that the feminists don't understand is there is no law against having a female protagonist.  Rockstar just chooses not to have one and should never be under the obligation to have one forced on them because a handful of people are upset.

 

It is a free market and nobody stops games with female protagonist being made.  It is just, in the video game market games don't do that well with a female lead(a couple of exceptions withstanding).

I actually would not mind if one of the protagonists was a woman but all this whining makes me glad Rockstar is making the game their way. I even read an article calling The Last of Us sexist which is absurd so these feminists will whine about everything. Rockstar made the game their way and part of the story will probably be the brotherhood that develops between the three characters. 

 

You didn't hear men whining because Sex and the City didn't have a male character or whatever so why do they insist on trying to force their ways on a game that has a mostly male fanbase anyway?

The story doesn't feat a character woman, if there was one she had to be some girl that was left with a kid or some girl that had a hard life and had to prostitute herself. I don't see how she could feat with the other protagonists and the story they wanna tell.

Did any guy raged over EIDOS when they could only play with Lara Croft? Or with Capcom for using Nilin as a protagonist for Remember Me?

Play the games as they are and respecte developers for their work and choices. I bet if there was a female protagonist someone would complain because they were degrading the women, that they were against the violence and they are sensible creatures that would never do something like that.

Bah, the best thing to do is ignore this people, they have to btch about something every time, it's like these forums everyone is hyped for the game but they have something to cry about although they'll be the first in front of the store to get the game.

Omg just shut up, I'm a gamer but you're all acting like you some sort of Race that is being pinned against.. I don't give one sh*t who this bitch is who looks like she has a giant pimple on the side of her face has to say about how V has no Female Pro-tag.. f*ck being apart of the majority I prefer it that way too.. Am I a feminist? Oh that word a Woman made up so she could complain about something else in the long run?! Sorry, but this bitch makes the Women who I know who ain't dumb ass all sh*t bad. You women have been crying for too long and I bet this one had her period when this was writen. End of bullsh*t.

a female could work dont get me wrong. she would have to be a cold heartless woman which should be easy enough to make but it wouldnt  with 2 guys and a girl cause all the two guys would do is try to either f*cker her or she would screw them over. that said idgaf what they make the protag id play it either way. it doesnt have to be a woman or a man straight gay black white. idk why people do give a sh*t so much about that. i enjoy it for what they created.

A female protag just simply wouldn't work lol. It would be so unbelievable that it would break all immersion. It works in games like saints row because those game aren't story driven like GTA is.
