Lamar is funny but I don't know if he would fit with michael and trevor... on the other hand franklin is boring... I mean I like the character but in terms of background history franklin got nothing... I was at least expecting a romance between frank and his ex just to spice things up... but no. He just acts like Trevor & Michaels puppets. M & T on the other hand have awesome Background story with all that betraying and FBI stuff going on...

I don't think I could stand hearing the word "nigga" 87 times in a row again. It's like he was speaking another language,- although we studied the same books in school and grew up in the same country. Then he claims he's american indian? lol Oh R*, what happened? I think Lamar was a good supporting character, though. But I agree too that Blanklin was too vanilla--nothing really interesting enough about him. I was hoping for a little depth and a good back story. He's just too damn whiny and don't fit in.....but then again....neither do Tranny Trevor and Michael barely works in a GTA. My opinion, nothing more, nothing less.

He Stayed true to his character, was a better gangbanger, was funnier, had better voice acting, even though a little dumb he was responsible for one of the best missions of the game..

... and said "nigga" every second word.

Its not as annoying as franklin saying MAN FTER EVERY GOD DAMN SENTENCE.

"COME ON MAN, DONT BE LIKE THAT MAN, WHAT THE f*ck YOU WANT MAN, IM IN MAN, WHATS UP NIGGA MAN, IM TIRED MAN, I DONT WANNA DO A MISSION MAN I WANNA SIT AT HOME MAN AND DO NOTHING MAN, YOU HEAR ME DAWG MAN"

Lamar gave me flashbacks of Ryder and Sweet who I think are both terrible.

Lamar was alright for the role he played, but most of the conversation with him and Franklin gave me a god damn headache. Almost like trying to understand a foreign language.

Always use subs in games.

For me, Lamar is the most annoying character in GTA V... followed by this FIB asshole with his own TV show ;)

I disagree completely. Lamar represents those people who live in the hood and still glorify gang banging like its 1992. I think Lamar's character was a great way to show how GTA V and Franklin's character were moving forward from the SA days.

 

He was an amazing supporting character for sure, and unlike MVC, I loved the dialogue between them. I think MVC is just one of those people who doesnt enjoy the gangbanger story/mentality that is portrayed in film.

Nah, I didn't like Lamar, I found him pretty irritating unlikeable. His overuse of "nigga" is seriously annoying and stereotypical.

No, Lamar is a closed minded hood rat and that's all he's ever gonna be. Franklin could have just said "nahh man f*ck you" when he and Michael met but he was willing to get to know him better and that shows Franklin is the better character because I'm pretty sure lamar would have just called Michael a crazy ass white dude if he was in the situation franklin was in and be on his way and that would have been that.

Haha. Yeah, that was really annoying. He offended Franklin like mad yet he hangs around him 24/7. I don't even understand why the majority of black people (around the USA ghettos) call each other "niggas". I'm confused if they are actually offending one another or joking around. Either way, I wouldn't want Lamar as a protagonist. It just wouldn't work.

Lamar is a perfect side character.

 

Terrible protag though.

Lamar is funny because we only deal with him in small doses. An entire game with him as the protaganist would get old real quick, trust.

The ballad of Jimmy, Wade and Lamar: Dead in 60 Seconds
It'd be pretty funny though...

If I could have left Lamar
Spoiler
I would have.

As I finally approach the end of the story I feel like Franklin didn't actually know what he wanted, only what he wanted to get away from. Thus all the ironing and car washing transitions. Now that he's out from under his old life he doesn't seem to know what should come next...perhaps he should do a CJ and move to LC?

If LAMAR replaced Frank GTA 5 Would have been 100 Times Better..

He Stayed true to his character, was a better gangbanger, was funnier, had better voice acting, even though a little dumb he was responsible for one of the best missions of the game..

HE EVEN OWNED CHOP..

 

1992 is that way.

Lamar is the perfect side character. He'd make a bad protag. Like Yusuf and (yes, come at me bros) Roman; I loved them in IV, but they'd make sh*t protags.

 

 

Lol
Swap Franklin for Lamar.
Swap Trevor for Wade, and Michael for Brad, or James....

/Sarcasm

SOMEBODY  MAKE THIS INTO A VIDEO WHEN THE PC VERSION COMES OUT. That'd be the most hilarious f*ckin' thing ever. Wade, Lamar, Jimmy.

people already made Niko possible in GTAV

Lamar is an annoying piece of sh*t that I can't even understand half the time. Nothing but a sh*t stain who always brings Franklin down even after he saved his sorry ass from the Ballas. I don't even know why he still hangs out with him. I've learned to ditch so called ''friends'' in life that treat me that way.

I live in the inner-city and as much as I hate to admit it, that is how the inhabitants use that word, its like a teenage girl using the word "like". Lamar wouldve been interesting if R* had gangbanging more heaily featured. and not just being

Spoiler
I could see him and Trev hanign out doin speed together. And since micheal and Trev already knew each other it wouldn'tve been a stretch, no pun intended.

Just decided to replay the campaign and OMFG did I forget how ultimately frickin annoying Lamar is... so much so that I was glad that the mission came to a close...

 

Seriously, I'm 10000% a Trevor fan and Lamar hater. Trev is what makes GTA V work.
