I keep hearing that in the beta version of the game, Lamar was going to replace Franklin, since Franklin was supposed to get killed in the third ending.

 

Just out of wondering, where did this rumor, if it even was, sprout up from? An interview, preview, or bullsh*t?

Part of me is glad that's not true considering I got the 'three amigos get a happy ending' ending that I wanted, the other part would've liked to see consequences for choosing something specifically labeled as 'Deathwish'. Plus, playing as Lamar would beat playing as Jack Marston.

A friend of mine said that lamar has lots of dialogue that was cut. Just what he told me said he was checking youtube or something.

No it would be even worse.

Actually he has some unique traits that the other NPCs don't have.

 

Such as small details (During the Repo Mission you can witness that his sandals flop) and a special walking animation just for him.

There were characters in GTA IV that also had their own animations just for them.

99% of rumours are bullsh*t and the people who create them are retarded.

I read this somewhere as well. It said that Lamar has extra animations and dialogue that's not used in the game. That makes sense to me bcoz of the mini map icons that was cut. It was probably extra mini games for Lamar. I dunno but that's what I'm thinking.

There is no proof of that. But I wish he did replace boring ol' Franky-poo.

I've heard this too, but I gotta say, I think it's bullsh*t. I've not seen any proper evidence other than articles full of hearsay and conjecture, which is not evidence. Still, I'd be happy to be proven wrong (though for the record, I think R* took the right decision in not implementing this, although I do think Deathwish should've involved Franklin's death because it makes it more dramatic, I just wouldn't want them pulling a Jack Marston again if they had done it)

There's no evidence to support this.

But I'm sure someway Lamar was gonna be playable only when in missions.

I could imagine, I thought when Frank, Lamar, and Trevor was doing the deal Lamar would be playable but nope lol.

He seems like a playable character though.

I thought someone said they found code in the games files a while back for Lamar as a playable character. 

 

Is anyone able to dig into the games files and see if there is anything that mentions Lamar as a playable character?

Lamar should've been the 3rd protag instead of Franklin with Franklin being the contact that links him to Michael and Trevor.

If I recall there were a lot of extra Lamar dialogue files found, so many that it actually appeared as if you were originally supposed to replace him if Franklin died.
