We start as

Spoiler
and we get to know these two very well in particular. We get to know about past and present mistakes and these are the two who f*ck the most things up in a way.

 

Since

Spoiler
can both be killed and won't be in any other GTA title all we got is Franklin. 

 

Kind of sh*tty. He is...well, okay. But nothing special. He's so generic. A little bit of CJ, a little bit Luis Lopez, he is like a nice, helping guy with high moral standards but also kills relentlessy. 

 

Somehow, all the previous protagonists of colour Rockstar created are like this. They can't add depth to a coloured protagonist.

 

Why is that? I mean, side characters of colour are alright...Dwayne, Jacob, Badman, Jim, Clay.

A Main Protagonist who basically was NOT FUN and stayed a fourth of his true character ..unlike trevor and michael who Stuck on to their true characters until the end.. Lamar was right.. Franklin was not a good enough gangbanger.. he was im sorry to say a pussy compared to other black protagonists like CJ or even Luis or wateva.. just wasn''t there.. felt dumb..

Franklin's story is about him getting into deeper criminal activity while attempting to prepare himself for the worst. In the endings where 

Spoiler
that he becomes upset over his decision. He was not prepared to lose someone dear to him (maybe Lamar though. I was expecting him to die.).

 

Franklin's only role is to show what it's like for a newbie in a really dangerous situation.

They did a half-assed job with Franklin...

But I agree. He is the main protagonist of the game. The beginning and end revolves around him.

So he's a bitch because he's not a ''good enough gang banger''?

That man save Lamar's ass countless times by putting his own life in danger and killing countless gangsters. And just because he is strong enough to say f*ck gangs, I want a better life, he is a bitch?

CJ is a bitch. He's the one who moaned about a better life but couldn't say no to Sweet so he stayed nothing but a hood rat. Franklin was his own man, and while the story didn't focus much on him, he was definitely a strong character who knew what he wanted and did what he had to do to get it.
You're just butthurt that he's not a copy of CJ, running around the ghetto screaming ''f*ck Ballas'' all day long.

Rapstargames that is not true. Franklin can't die in any ending. Even if he pulls up Mike.

I found Franklin to be the least interesting of the protagonists...by a long looong way.

But still agree, at the end he kind of felt like the MAIN main character. While through the story it felt like Michael.

I don't Franklin is the main protagonist, I think he is just the neutral character between Michael and Trevor. Which is why he's given the decision at the end.

There isn't a main protagonist, it's highly unlikely any of these characters will exist beyond a mention in future titles. Which I think is sad because I think Trevor is the best character they've come up with so far.

He'd been wanting to get out of the hood for a long time. He wasn't interested in being a gang banger and only did those stickups with Lamar because best friends drag each other into everything..

HOW does the beginning or end revolve around him? The game starts with Trevor and Michael and Trevor and Michael are also there at the ending.. Franklin just makes the choice, so what? So if Franklin and Michael suddenly got into a dispute and Trevor has to chose who to kill, Trevor is suddenly the main protagonist? This how it works? It bullsh*t really.

I'll add my 2 cents

 

I liked Franklin, yes he may not be as interesting as Michael or Trevor but he was a guy who knew what he wanted and he went and got it, he was a protege of Michael and even Trevor so of course he'd be sidelined next to them the whole time. I felt Rockstar did a great job of balancing the story between Michael and Trevor and the personal story of Franklin, and he is nothing like CJ... if you honestly think that i suggest you go and play San Andreas again, i can't find many similar qualities between the two besides the obvious ones.

Really ??

 

I did not think any of the 3 protagonists in GTA V were very interesting, let alone outstanding. There was nothing special about Michael or Franklin, and I just hated Trevor. 

 

These guys were not very memorable.

Cj had a charm about him

Franklin has nothing and easily the worst gta protagonist. When I saw him in the trailers I thought this charecter looks sh*t but maybe rockstar are keeping him abit secret for a reason. But I was right in the first place, he is exctly the way he is the trailers.

Michael and trevor are awsome though

Because when we say Black we're told it's African-American and when we say African-American we're told to say Black. 

 

Now I just say, "Youse guys"
