He Dosent Fit As A Protagonist He Feels Out Pf Place

 

How could you say this...I love the Trev. :) Although I guess watching him walk around Los Santos is a bit strange.  He was the character I was most afraid of ( as in scared to play because of what he might get up to) but he turned out to be my favorite.

R said in the Game Informer preview in 2012 that Trevor was a different kind of criminal than they are used to having. They wanted to show a different kind of crime and there are many criminals out there like him. They want the freedom of that lifestyle instead of it being just material gain. I am glad they did something different instead of another gangbanger or mobster.

TL;DR single player was rushed IN MY OPINION

Thank online for that. They should have contracted online to a separate department and focuses solely on single player.

 

 They should have scrapped online almost all together. I was expecting to have at least like 10 gang banging missions as Franklin, lots more family missions with Michael, crazy biker wars with Trevor, etc...

Well in my opinion, it did not work. Oooh wow, Trevor is such a badass, he's so crazy, wild, extremely violent and destructive. Ok great, what next ? Oh wait, and just for added fun, he dresses up in women's clothes and underwear when drunk, and he possibly likes to have sex or get intimate with other men too. Nah, not sold on any of it, and I'm nowhere near impressed. Trevor and his story was just a load of bullsh*t. Would have been the perfect antagonist or NPC.

 

Trevor was just a waste of protagonist space.

Honestly, I'd say that Franklin is the one who should be a side character. He's pretty much the 'outsider' of the main plot until they shoehorn him into the ending. That could have worked if they gave him a story of his own, but they kinda just ended his story early and the only hints of it we get are there to establish the relationship with the other two protagonists. I can't even really give Franklin credit for pushing the main story forward as Michael was clearly losing it and it's not like Franklin told him to anger Madrazo, which is really where the whole big story starts to take off. It's not like they needed an extra protagonist to do it either. All they really did was make us sit through gang stuff that would not really pay off at all later down the line to delay the main story starting. I'd rather focus more on Trevor's war with the Lost and takeover of Sandy Shores than Franklin's gang war and I would pick that any day.

Trevor and Michael were arguably the biggest protagonists. The entire story revolves around their conflict.

Franklin is just kind of there.

To me he shouldn't have even existed in my opinion. Would've been cool and more interesting to have a more subtle lunatic in his place. I cannot stand it when games try to put a heavy emphasis on how crazy a protag is.

I know people like him. Of course he is extreme because entertainment usually is but I know guys who sell drugs and do crimes simply because they have no desire to join the rat race and fit into normal society. They also have that don't give a f*ck kind of mentality.

Are you saying that hispanics only come from Mexico?

Luis Lopez just had a horrible voice actor. I loved TBOGT but it seems like they just got some drunk off the street to do his part.

I dare you to say that to his face.
