To add to Alvarez -
1 - Franklin is made with that potential to go dancing, pick up girls etc. Yes, he's pining for Miss Jackson a lot, and isn't really after anything shallow like Luis was, but with GTA's the trick Rockstar face is making the character have such values, but plausibly justified to go out girl hunting (that sounds wrong ). Also, Franklin's trying to leave the hood, and he does. But someone his age, with so much money - the only thing missing is a lot of friends - i could see him and his posse rolling up to bahama mamas in a shiny black SUV, stepping out well dressed, walking to the doorman with swagger, slipping him a fifty, then walking in like they owned the place, strutting to the bar and getting sh*t faced. Money and youth = a sense of entitlement (that Franklin surprisingly and thankfully seems to lack) or at least good times!
2 - Trevor isn't as unhinged as people imply. Yes, he's hardly a christian philanthropist, but he's shrewd, cunning and merciless in business. He runs meth and guns. Drugs. Drugs + nightclubs - come on, doesn't anyone remember the nineties? Think "51st State" - more specifically, Samual L Jackson's character. Drugs + nightclubs = distribution! Trevor ends up owning a strip club. Is it really that far fetched for him to own a night club, or use one to sell drugs or even get sh*t faced in?
3 - Midlife crisis man, trying to reclaim his lost youth by hanging out with a young gangbanger (former) - that sounds... sh*t that is gta V. It's no push that Michael could visit the bars.
But there's also a missed oppurtunity here. To some extent, we saw it with hunting. Trevor could visit the dive bars - the crap, cheap, nasty drug fueled dens. Franklin could cruise the stylish and loud clubs. Michael could visit the classy bars. Or all three could have access to all three. there is the opportunity for some styling here.
And then there's owning businesses - why couldn't these characters own and run the clubs? I could see F doing the doorman thing. I could see M investing in clubs and I could see T taking out the drug competition. It's a missed oppurtinity for Rockstar to have a take on modern day clubs and bars - of which LA has a lot of.
Exactly, the R* fanboys can't seem to get that into their thick f*cking heads though. If R* had of added interiors GTA V would've actually been a really good game even though the map design is poor, the story sucks, the side characters are forgettable, the cops and peds are f*cking psychos, the hair cuts suck, the mini games(yoga, tennis, triathlon) are f*cking lame even the racing was half assed, but if they had of added interiors it could have changed the rating from a 5/10 to a 8/10.
As for that guy saying Mike, Frank and Trev wouldn't go out clubbing or socializing you're a unimaginatve f*cking idiot, what's funny about that is you're the type of guy to say "I never get bored, I just use my imagination, I pretend I'm a taxi driver that has a dog" L.A.M.E. Your imagination sucks ass, if you're imagination wasn't so full of sh*t you'd be able to come up with a reason or place MF & T would go out to socialize and find big titted pornstar sluts that live in the imaginary San Fernando Valley above Los Santos.
Franklin is young rich single black guy he would fit in just fine at any club or bar in the city, especially a club like Bahama Mamas, he could mingle with celeb parodies of Lindsay Lohan, Miley Cyrus and all the other holywood whores then take 'em home and cum in their eyes.
Mike is a middle aged rich white guy, it would make sense if he could go to sports bars and fancy strip joints full of skinny coked up blonde whores shoving their sweaty 36dd's all over his face.
Trevor is a loveable scumbag piece of trailer trash, he would fit in just fine at a redneck bar out in Paleto Bay full of sexy Jessica Simpson look-alikes dancing on the bar in cowboy boots while he starts a massive bar fight with some bikers or who ever wants it.
That is what you call "using your imagination" not "I like to pretend I'm a single guy with a dog that I play fetch with at the park sometimes" or "I like to pretend Michael is a yoga instructor" that's f*cking bullsh*t, go take your f*cking retarded "imagination" and shove it up the f*cking Sims asshole.
