When you think about it, the III era protags were really quite under-developed. Pretty shallow. Tommy was just a guy who tried to get rich, there's basically no story to Vice City, it's basically just an orgy of cocaine fueled money making.
I disagree on so many levels.
Victor Vance alone probably has more depth than any of the GTA protagonists.
Vic was worse than Niko lol He was basically the lovechildof CJ and Niko if they raised him to be flamboyant. He was pretty badass, but HE NEVER f*ckING WANTED TO DO ANYTHING ON EVERY SINGLE f*ckING MISSION lol Yet he always ended up doing it anyway. I mean, even Niko didn't protest at every freaking cutscene.
And I think a lot of you guys are missing the point: people like Tommy BECAUSE he wasn't sympathetic. He's a psycho and he knows he's a psycho, he kills because he WANTS to kill, he's not a hypocrite about it. Ofc, there's also the fact that he's voiced by Ray Liotta. The reason a lot of people, myself included, didn't like Niko, Vic, or CJ was because they would say one thing and then turn around and do the opposite and we were supposed to buy that. Characters like Tommy and Trevor, on the other hand, embrace that. They don't give a f*ck. Did I mention Ray Liotta?
Don't ever put the legendary Tommy V and Trevor in the sentence again or I'll be forced to make you my bitch...metal to the deaf..
Tommy was a pyscho, but he still had a certain charm about him that made him ooze with charisma and character.
Trevor on the other hand is a dirty, trailer trash, piece of sh*t. I really can't see what others see in him? I know R* said he was made to represent the average GTA player, but it makes me feel insulted lol.
I remember when he was revealed as the third protagonist. He wasn't very well liked until he was shown blowing up trains and whatnot.
I admit some of his dialogue is hilarious, but as a character I can't stand his loud, agitated and unsettled ways. It's a shame all of the good activities are Trevor exclusive as I don't think I'd use him anywhere near as much. I have to admit ending A gave me some deep seeded satisfaction.
