I don't understand why Franklin would kill Michael. Makes no sense. Felt like it was just put in to add choices.

I choose Deathwish. I knew there had to be a way other than killing Michael or Trevor.

I went ahead with deathwish. I wasn't about to have any of the main three die on me, especially when given a choice. Even though I was still a little disappointed that Trevor killed Johnny, the more I got to know his story and personality the better he became.

I wish I could have killed Franklin. Why did he get to be the star at the end?

 

Franklin was always the main character of the three.  Outside of the tutorial/opening level, who did you start the game as? 

 

I chose C because it made the most sense.  I could see Fanklin maybe killing Trevor but NOT Michael at all.  Either way, I'll do one of the other endings on my next replay next month.

I beat the game three times. I chose Kill Trevor the first time. The second time around, I chose Deathwish. The third time around, I chose Kill Michael ONLY because it was the only option left that I could actually see in front of me on my television screen. I can understand why Kill Michael is the least popular of the three endings. However, I think there should've been a choice D, which is basically to kill everyone who you kill in options A, B, and C. That ending would make quite a bit of sense considering Franklin was still quite angry with Devin Weston and the FIB, but before Devin Weston's visit, he did say to Michael, Trevor, and Lester "Ya know what, you are all assholes!" upon leaving Michael's house. So yeah..

The very first time I played this I picked DeathWish thinking that Franklin would be the one to get killed (hence the name). It's not that I didnt like him though, I thought that it'd be more impactful to have him try to save his friends from getting killed only to get himself killed instead, because at the time I thought that was what it was going for.

Well, except you extremely hate either Trevor or Michael, i don't think anyone would actually pick either A or B ending..  Not only you won't be able to kill the scumbags that force you to do their dirty jobs during the storyline playthrough, you'll even lost some of the assets from said respective protagonists, so i guess my choice is definitely C, given that it's the only proper ending unlike either option A or B which IMO are extremely rushed..

Ending A. I’ve chosen all three at some point, but it’s my favourite one.

IMO C is the only viable option, this way you dont lose any property and the bad guys get killed.

A and B however are extremely rushed (not like option C wasnt, but at least it was not just a copy & paste) like pretty much the whole story.

I chose ending A during my first playthrough. It was the only logical way to end the game and I really wanted to see this methhead asswipe being burned to the crisp. During my second playthrough I chose ending C for solely reason to keep the garage spaces and Gun running at McKenzie's.

Four years on, and several more playthroughs, and my opinion hasn't changed.

 

At the point at which you have to make the decision, from a story perspective Ending A is the logical choice for Franklin - yes, you've worked with Trevor for a while, but that also means you've seen first-hand what an unhinged psychopath he is. If he's in Los Santos, there's a high probability he's going to get you killed at some point in the future; for your own safety, and for the good of the general population of the state, Trevor's got to go.

 

Buuuut, with hindsight having played through multiple times - from a game perspective, Ending C is clearly the choice. It's the most satisfying mission of the three by far, and leaves all post-story options open. It doesn't resolve the psycho Trevor storyline.....but perhaps that's what the originally intended but now defunct DLC was supposed to do.

 

 

I haven't ever played Ending B, because it makes absolutely zero thematic sense.

OK, I'm going to go kill the guy who's mentored me and made me millions of dollars, and is now no threat to me because he's retiring from the life of crime to work in the movie business, because this other rich guy who screwed me over when I stole cars for him told me to. Yeah, right.

I chose Deathwish in every single one of my playthroughs.

 

Don't get me wrong, I love the idea that Rockstar gave us the choice to execute one of the protagonists. Its edgy and dark. But the truth is I love ALL three protagonists, and I honestly felt like choosing to kill one at the end, after going through a ton of story with them, not to mention making so much progress on each of their characters, seemed a little wasteful.

 

But my first time though, I saved the game just before that Devon mission so that I could at least experience the alternate endings, even if I were not willing to flush all of either Trevor Michael's progress, accomplishments, and assets down the toilet. Strangely enough, I was actually looking forward to playing both the A and B endings. I assumed, and was hoping for some epic battle and incredibly death sequence, like the awesome way Trevor disposed of Johnny.

 

But the A and B endings turned out to be my biggest disappointment with V, as the endings were poorly thought out, terribly executed, and both play and "watch" like some cut and paste afterthought-missions. I was blown away that the crack team of Rockstar writers and devs couldn't come up with a more creative way to execute two protagonists.

 

Both A and B were pointless. Not because you can kill one of them, but because of how lazily and absurdly simplistic the missions were.

Great point here man👌🏼!

My take: I was sick of characters being killed off! they have made an impact on the past of all GTA series which is why I didnt kill Packie in V which is why I chose C, its just ridiculous, even in vice city a character had to die which is sad to see past characters gone. Thats my take, Love all gta series 🔥

Although I did have save slots where I Killed Michael and Trevor, my main save finished with Deathwish, as this was my preferred ending.

I dont see the point of killing either, while Michael may be lower than a rattlesnakes arse, he was the one who turned Frank from 2-bit gangster into a professional robber, Michael also proves his snake like behaviour to save his own skin if Frank chooses to kill him when he says 'We'll roll on T right now'.

As for Trevor, as much a psycho he is, he is likable and I find him funny, he helped Frank and Lamar in Grove Street by pointing out the Key of Coke was dry wall and came to Franks aid at the Ballas Weed Hideout, so betraying Trevor makes no sense either.

Canonically, Deathwish is the way to go. Finishing off your enemies is the real way to end a GTA game.

What happens if you ice Trevor?

 

Although, you can't really ice Trevor so much as you burn him.

As others have said, I think Deathwish was kind of the obvious choice.

Also, another thing to consider in terms of the lame way the A and B endings were cobbled together like some videogame-afterthought, is that there is no incentive to killing either Michael or Trevor. In fact, the entire thing is dis-incentivized completely. You spend an entire game building up the assets of all three protagonists, collecting cars, stocks, properties, MONEY, and increasing their skills via experience. Then you kill one of them and you basically lose from your inventory everything that character possessed that you worked so hard to build up.

 

The least Rockstar could have done was allow the two protagonists left to somehow share the assets of the executed protagonists.

 

Moreover, if you have to make a choice as a player for Franklin to kill one of them, shouldn't there be some real incentive to do it, both financial and material? 

 

Not only were the A and B endings nothing more than cut and paste afterthoughts, but not once is the player given any good motivation to kill Michael or Trevor, other than the biggest douchebag in the game, who is an enemy to all three protagonists, demanding he choose one. In addition to making the endings more interesting and fun to play, shouldn't the player be lavishly compensated for taking out one of the protagonists? I mean, other than not liking one of the two, there really is no viable motivation to choosing one of the execution endings.

Having the choice was just silly. Now means that the characters are determinant and there's no real continuation for anyone but Franklin. It's the same as IV, really, the choice is kinda silly. You can either finish the game, or finish the game with someone missing.

 

Plus even though the ending was kinda sloppy, it nicely ties everything up, whereas A or B just don't at all.

It was by design though ; The writers WANTED those 2 endings to contrast completely with the third ending. The hint in The Final Mission is obvious ; it's the only time during the whole game that you can actually choose the fate of the story line. It's a crucial and decisive choice that will affect his life and the life of many characters forever . This correspond to Franklin's life crossroad since there's more than 2 choice and it's the only time during the whole game that he can choose between 3 story changing options.

 

To be fair ; There is a financial gain if you kill Trevor , Lester split his share of the final heist with him and Michael. If you kill Michael , Lester send his share to his family instead , that's why you don't get it. But again , the aftermath of both bad endings are clearly shown as detrimental to Franklin ultimately. Lester hates you for what you've done , he won't work with you anymore. Both protagonist also can't trust you anymore , effectively putting an end to their friendship with Franklin. He ends up being in his multi-million mansion , still depressed and alone.

 

To understand these endings and why they make so much sense , you can't ignore that they wanted to illustrate something. Both endings A and B are dead ends story wise.
