He is NOT speaking to GTA there. "We haven't found the right game for it yet"

 

So before the feminist fantasy foundation shows up to f*ck up and patronize the hearts and minds of young women everywhere who deserve more respect than those liars give them, let it be said that there is no such thing as a female Niko Bellic, and a female protag would cease to be GTA, change the gameplay entirely, OR feel entirely fake and contrived, patronizing to females everywhere.

 

A female on your crew who is good at some task you need her to do is one thing, expecting a female to live the life of carl johnson, tommy vercetti, or niko bellic, is more than fantasy, it's idiocy, and would be the least-believable GTA ever.

 

He is referencing an entirely different game "We don't have a game yet, but if we do, it would be great".

 

GTA is a social commentary. Females like GTA protagonists do not exist in society to comment on. They do not exist outside of bad movies, and Rockstar makes fun of that feminist BS lie they tell little girls in those bad movies. the end.

It could be. That's the point.

 

If someone wants a female lead SO BAD they should write their own plots and characters and submit them over to R*. If it really is fantastic, they could consider it, I wouldn't mind at all.

 

But if R* themselves don't have the creative and natural disposition and taste to come up with a female lead, it won't happen.

 

They're not retarded enough to contrive a lousy narrative to cater to people.

I really couldn't imagine a female as a protagonist... Don't take that the wrong way but could you imagine a woman, robbing a bank?

GTA III catalina was badass enough to rob a bank and outtake claude at the same time.

You're trying to have a reasonable conversation on a messageboard where many or most posters think women are effectively an alien species, don't understand--or have a distorted perception of--the history of feminism and what sexism actually is, who give fictional men with extraordinary abilities a free pass but demand strict normalization of fictional women, and who would sooner suspend disbelief playing a robot in a tanooki suit in GTA than a human female criminal. My favorite is the guy who unironically insists that women rather play as male characters anyway, as though that single sentence doesn't contain a dozen ludicrous lapses of logic (alliteration ftw) in it. It's not going to work out well.

 

Also, I don't think this belongs in News.

there doesn't need to be a female -lead-.

 

if they ever make another game,  and if it does multiple protagonists again, I don't see why it wouldn't because Rockstar is obsessed with the idea,  overconfident really but that's besides the point.

 

If they do another multi protag game,  why not just make one of them a woman,  big deal.

 

 

I don't think I'm going to touch GTAO until PC,  But GTAO you can play as either,  except you are a silent character like Saints Row 1 or GTA III AFAIK

I don't want to see a female protag is throwing with kitchen knifes, throwing strawberry cupcakes

and killing people with rat posion, stabbing people in their heart with a long heel, stealing sugardaddies,

running like a sissy girl when being chased by a fat slow cop and all that kind of sh*t.

GTA must stay as it is.

I should put this in my signature, because it would save me tapping it out every time.

 

"They don't write female characters, because they can't write female characters."

 

There's a difference in being able to choose to do something, and going with the only option you have - which is what Houser & co do in their games. It's best leaving female characters to the pros like Naughty Dog and Bioware.

It's just maddening how often this comes up on here, how often kotaku pumps the agenda, it's really disheartening to see so ,many people completely fail to understand GTA.

Oh yea, I'm totally closed minded for not feeding into feminist agenda and lying to young girls telling them they are the same as a man, or young boys telling them they are the same as a girl.

 

We are a different species. Marriage counselors make money reinforcing that FACT. In the crime world, there is no Nikita Bellic, and if there is, her job is not compatible with gameplay of GTA. Period.

 

It's hard enough to suspend belief for a game. You throw in something that simply does not exist in a game that is meant to be a real life social commentary, and it all goes out the window - OR - gameplay and role changes - thus, no longer GTA.

 

If you knew anything about the crime world, you'd know, there is no such thing as Carlita Johnson, and catalina was hard enough to stomach, and she was from before all the lies started being forced into the minds of young women and men everywhere.

 

We are not an equal species. This is not an equal opportunity gig. Women, IN THE CRIME WORLD, are whores, are arm candy, are hostesses and such, nothing more. Elizibetha was hard enough to believe. But you can see, she didn't go to work, Niko and Packie did.

 

Period.

 

You people who want Bayonetta: GTA, eat it, because all it shows is that you lack basic understanding of the series and really don't know anything about the real world.

 

How the f*ck you gonna put a woman in a serious crimnal role when we don't love them hoes? THE WHOLE GAME WOULD BE FAKE. Money over bitches ring a bell? And this is man's world -> As far as crime goes.

 

If Rockstar ever bends and gives this insane fantasy a go, it will be a pop mark on the history of GTA and the corniest game they ever made. Because it will be so different to make it believable, OR, it will be so unbelievable if it's not drastically changed. One or the other.

 

There is no such thing as Claudette Speed. There is no such thing as Kill Bill sh*t in real life, and you want that fake sh*t, go play bayonetta. Go play saints row. GTA is above the politically retarded. it is above the nonsense and lies. It exposes this nonsense. They will NEVER feed it.

Lol brian.

Took it a bit too far, but I agree. It would not be gta with a female protagonist.

I used a female protagonist in saints Row because the game is not trying to emulate a real criminal syndicate. That game is all fake, so it works fine.

GTA is supposed to be reality with a little dose of over the top nonsense but in a reasonable manner. A female protagonist would make the game feel so cheesy and full of sh*t.

I'm all for female protagonists if it works. But when it doesn't and they try to just force it in, it's terrible.

GTA is a parody of stereotypes and what culture has been dominated by. It's here to make fun of what's common life and common entertainment, not to elevate the exceptional and not to be a leader or a barometer of social/media progress.  The idea that anyone would think of a female GTA protagonist as some kind of milestone is nuts.
