It seems Rockstar wants to move away from that serious type of protagonist as one can see in GTA V but I really liked Niko

He was badass, had a interesting background and was easily the most fleshed out GTA protagonist ever

Anyone agrees and hopes Rockstar will return to that kind of protag and also in terms of story?

 

Maybe GTA IV was too dark at times and maybe they removed funny gameplay mechanics (for no reason in my opinion) but with GTA V it seems Rockstar don't wants to return to that kind of story and character at all (and even city as Liberty City feels like a real crime-ridden City and Los Santos just fake)

Nope, for me that title will forever go to Tommy Vercetti.

Niko was probably the most dramatic and emotional of the protagonists, but that doesn't make him the best in my opinion.

 

CJ was the best!

I know it's just opinion but I beg to differ. CJ was by far the worst protagonist in the series
in my opinion. He was always whiny and even though he wanted revenge for his mom, he still went ahead and did other stuff which was both meaningless and worthless.

I have to agree with on that it seems IV was a darker story but in my opinion that made it work ,while sa ,III and 5 are good IV showed the darker side.

>Arguing about CJ not being the best protagonist

:p

 

CJ whined about drugs being in his hood, and about homies being turned into housecleaners. He only did those things for Wu-Zi Mu because Wu-Zi Mu became a friend, and he met Wu-Zi in a race set up for him by Ceaser, the guy who helped him figure out who killed his mom in the first place. CJ didn't want to work on the garage in San Fierro either, but Kendell convinced him to do it. The casino was Wu-Zi's, and by that point he was distracted with all the other stuff that people were asking him to do (as well as being blackmailed by Toreno, and indebted to the Don Salvatore Leonne.)

 

He couldn't really break Sweet out of jail, take the hood back, or go near Big Smoke because CRASH had him by the balls until Hernandez snitched to IA, and the riot had broken out.

 

He was definitely a huge wimp though.

 

 

 

Anyway, you said Niko had an interesting background, and I really wished they went more into it! Maybe with emails from family or something (I know his mom sends him one at the beginning of the game, hinting at how bad it is back home, but I don't remember any more.) All we really get is him coming off the boat, and occasionally lapsing into war stories when he talks with friends. Lots of people still argue over whether he's even Serbian or not!

Why the f*ck is CJ being discussed in this thread? We're discussing Niko. Not the vagina with legs.

 

Anyway Niko is definitely the best. He's down to earth, caring, realistic and doesn't take sh*t from anyone. He has a real flawed personality which R* never tried to sugarcoat. He'll never be replicated ever IMO.

Tbh, I really like CJ and he comes in second imo, but yeah, Niko is my favourite protag. He's just cool, calm and collected but still pretty darn bad ass when he needs to be.

3rd imo would be Vic Vance, followed by Johnny, Tommy, Luis, Tony, Claude and Huang Lee in that order.

It's a shame I haven't played V yet to rank them too :(

This. At least in my option. But Niko is good protagonist at all, the only thing i disliked is why Rockstar set Niko as Serbian cold killer with background story how he was killing people, doing genocide in Yugoslavia's war and all that. Serbs were always defending..Anyway this goes more through politic, so i'll leave it.

Niko with the Deal ending... his story and attitude makes him so depressing and the best character in the series.

ISHYGD f*cking DT

 

Also, anyone arguing about him not being Serbian or not is a retard, in the beginning, Roman says 'My Serbian isn't so good', and another thing that makes him an obviously a Serb, is that his dart is the Serbian flag when playing darts.

Case closed.

 

King ace is right, CJ whined too much and his story doesn't make sense, it's like some sh*tty LSD movie.

By far, he is the worst protagonist.

Oh yes, and people who doesn't want to accept Niko as Serbian, who doesn't want to accept the truth, they dont have to. I don't see why it's so hard for some people to accept it.
