Michael is a Judas. Although the only way for him to step out of the game and have his family safe was to betray Brad and Trevor. I too would do the same. Besides wasn't Brad going to cap Michael soon anyway and Trevor was fine with it? Brad and Michael didn't like each other. So if it didn't go like it did, it was either Trevor and Brad killing Michael. All three characters are hypocrites. That's what makes the characters interesting in GTA. Rockstar always gives their characters that hypocrisy characteristic.

I like all three characters, but the amount of love Michael gets and the hate the other two get does perplex me.  Michael is basically the character everyone hated in every other GTA game, the back stabbing prick.

But since he has a dysfunctional family and shows regret that his backstabbing didn't get him the perfect life he wanted, people give him a pass.

Because he's a realist. He knows what he has to do to survive and does it without hesitation. I'm pretty sure if Niko was put in the same situation he would do something similar, probably not go the the FIB... But he would simply cap Trevor and Brad.

The FIB came to him.

Yeah Michael's old flabby snitch ass got killed the first chance they gave me. Only switched to him when forced and when I wanted to f*ck with Jimmy.

And why wouldn't people like Michael? He's not my favorite, but I don't find a reason to hate him

I like him as a character but at the end of the day Michael only loves Michael. He is a very self centered person and a hypocrite. He was still interesting to play.


Michael can be selfish at times but it's pretty obvious that he cares a lot of Franklin. Just look at the end cutscene to "Dead Man Walking". He knows sh*t is about to go down and what does he do? He tries to tell Franklin to leave town so he doesn't get involve in michaels mistakes

No joke I thought this said "Only switched to him when forced and when I wanted to f*ck Jimmy".

Even more so in ending B. Even when Michael knows Franklin is trying to kill him he tells him that he viewed him like a son. Hell, Michael could have killed Franklin then and there if he wanted to, but he didn't. Why? Because he actually cared about him.

Michael isn't a snitch, he just does what he can to keep those closer to him alive and well.

When I switched to that cutscene that shows Michael talking down to an employee on the movie set I admit I thought less of him. He came from poverty himself so how can he be a snob?

Only not that, after ending A he tries to hide the fact that he is angry over Franklin for killing Trevor and says we're friends, but I need some time.
Some time. This shows he cares for Trevor too . he just doesn't have too many options for loyalty and friendship.

I like Michael, with his disfunctional family and temper issues. I think Trevor really highlights the group of protagonists though. Really, I like all of the protagonists but Trevor's absurd behavior and surprisingly witty comments on things put him in a whole different level. I expected Michael to be the brains of the group, but does anybody else agree with me that Trevor is a f*cking genious?

 

Trevors genius could be compared to Howling Mad Murdock from the A-Team :D

HOW DARE YOU COMPARE SUCH A MAGNIFICENT CHARACTER TO TREVOR?!

 

And Michael's the best of a bad situation.

Can you blame him look at his family how can you not be depressed? F*ck I felt depressed for him especially

Exactly, when I first played the game and seen Jimmy he reminded me of Seth from superbad.
