i feel like all we been arguing in terms of DLC, is what ending is canon...

 

its pretty much guranteed that the DLC will be multiple packs, and that it follows the C ending..

 

how/what would you like to see explored in the trio in the DLC for each individual protag?

I would've liked to have seen Michael be more of an actual robber, as opposed to being a puppet for the feds.

 

I would've liked Franklin to have been an actual gangbanger because, despite how much I hate the culture, I would much rather play as a gangbanger as opposed to what is essentially a younger Michael.

 

Lastly, I would've liked for Trevor's criminal business to have been expanded on, mostly with him having a reason to fight the Lost MC and kill Johnny, as opposed to doing it just to make fanboys cry/cream their pants.

 

That being said, I doubt much development will be done in future DLC, if any. Trevor will still yell at Michael for betraying him, Michael will still be doing stuff with his family, feds, or that movie guy, and Franklin will only show up to keep the two from fighting. Just like in GTA 5.

I`d dig to see some sort of zaney missions with the Truth making an appearance,a sh*tload of peyote and acid then do some clandestine missions while high at the army base.

I don't know. If you listen to Michael during the tail end of the FIB HQ break in, he is adamant in telling the crew that he plans to take part in quite a few more heists including but not limited to "the big one."

This could be a nod towards the DLC and even more heists.

You must remember, turning your $25 million into $2 billion is an exploit. At no point does Rockstar instruct you or in any way infer to leave Lesters stock market manipulation missions for the end.

So in theory Canon would mean for Michael to be unable to afford the gold course.

We, as a community, like to blame Rockstar for not thinking it all through and giving us a clear way to earn at least $150 million but what if... We're supposed to wait for the DLC.

Crazy thought, I know. Why would any of us be patient?

At any rate I could also see the DLC going down "we all blew our money" route.. Trevor on drugs, Michael on his Vinewood lifestyle obsession, Franklin on god knows what...

I can definitely see them gearing up to not just be the only crew to take down the Union Depository but to be the only crew to do it TWICE.

Think about it... Hitting the bank again... With even higher security measures in place. Just a thought.

Franklin will blow all his money on crisps, weed and cheap beer and company from the 24/7 supermarket.

On that note I sure hope the DLC forces the player to earn their money either from scratch or from a random fixed amount, and not carry over from their earnings in V.

There will be no fun in purchasing properties with billions in your pocket, unless each property cost as much as the golf course!

The thought/idea just dawned on me that the DLC could begin with all three in prison after having their bank accounts and assets seized.. wouldn't be difficult to say Don Percival of Merriweather fame used his influence to get them locked up or someone else all together.

That might give us the "starting fresh" angle.

I can see Trevor running a business selling garden pots. You know, plastic pots, terracotta pots or novelty pots made from things like old RPGs or boots.

I'd like for them to give Franklin a soul. Right now he seems rather empty and without purpose. Michael has his family, and Trevor is a wanton hedonist, but what drives Franklin?

Sh*t I can write a story better than any of them fools at Rockstar.

 

Check this out for episodic DLC for GTA V, this my idea :

 

Franklin 
 
Even though he's now rich and living up in the hills, I'd like to see him get dragged right back into gang life once again, but in a more serious way. Lamar has now become the head of his own Families gang set trying to gain more turf to make it big in the drug game, but he's faced with a whole bunch of major troubles. Not only are rival gangs like the Ballas and Vagos at the gates trying to take Lamar and his gang down, but also rival sets of other Families gangs. On top of that, a squad of corrupt Los Santos police offers have been putting pressure on all the gangs to pay "protection money" or face being put in jail and out of business, very soon Lamar and his gang cannot afford to pay it. There is a lot of double-crossing, backstabbing and treachery going on in the streets, Lamar is losing men, money and territory fast - he don't know who to trust and where to turn to - except Franklin, who at first refuses to help because he wants to continue to live his high, luxury life in peace and not be distracted or disturbed with anymore gang stuff. that he now considers " bullsh*t". Then Franklin's auntie's house is shot up in a drive-by shooting, leaving his auntie in wounded and hospitalized, and then Tanisha gets kidnapped for a huge ransom by rival gang members to get Franklin to pay (they somehow gained information that Franklin is now filthy rich from those heists). Franklin refuses to pay the money at first, thinking that he can handle the situation, then his mansion is burned down by the ransomers. Franklin eventually pays and it swallows up pretty much all of his fortune, and he's left with no home. He decides it's time face up to the fact that his old gang life has caught up with him, and it's time bring out the gangsta in him once more to deal with the very serious threats to himself and the people he cares about. Franklin now realizes that all the money and luxuries in the world will not changed the fact that he's still a gangsta at heart, and he will always do what a gangsta has to do when needed, so he goes back to the hood to face these challenges. His main objectives are to get Tanisha back safely, protect his auntie, find out who the kidnappers are and get revenge, and then help Lamar and his crumbling Families gang set to win gang wars with other rival gangs, rebuild their gang to prominence, and turn them into big money-making hustlers by gaining more turf for drug sales, establishing good drug connections and stepping up their efforts and skills in the drug-dealing game. Franklin and Michael have remained good friends since, so Michael still enlists the help of Franklin from time to time to help him out on heists and get a nice cut out of it. 
 
 
Michael
 
Michael live at home back together with his family, but he's still bored and in need of excitement. Soon enough, his chance to relieve himself of his boredom comes unexpectedly, when he decides to have a go at playing the stock market, having been advised and persuaded by a shady Downtown Los Santos banker to make a few apparently shrewd, but in fact very risky investments (Michael is in fact being conned and set up in a massive white collar financial scam). He loses practically all of his fortune in these 'investments', the banker disappears and an angry Michael vows to hunt him down gain brutal vengeance on him. However, he has to sell his mansion, his nice cars, and he and his family have to live in some cheap apartment in another part of LS. Michael decides in the meantime, the best way to regain what he lost is to do it the best way he knows - heists. This time, it's not just robbing banks or jewelry stores - it's also breaking into offices of huge corporations to steal very valuable trade secrets and industry information, kidnapping very wealthy, rich men for ransom, or to blackmail them into paying huge sums of money, all kinds of crazy sh*t out of the box regarding heists. The FIB are hot on his trail, and this time there is no special favors or a 'sweet deal'. However Michael still has tricks up his sleeve to get the FIB off his back. Madrazo comes into contact with Michael again - he's in a brutal drug war with a rival cartel, he's badly losing and knowing Michael's very credible criminal history, he asks Michael to be his personal bodyguard and he hires him to help in this cartel war. Michael later learns that some high-ranking FIB and IAA officials are being bribed and controlled by the two drug cartels, and he tries to use this to his advantage. He gets the opportunity to join in sophisticated, but explosive scenarios that involve killing Mexican drug dealers, stealing kilos of drugs, or having to safely escort huge shipments of drugs in the countryside and wilderness. He will enlist the help of Trevor from time to time whenever Madrazo hires him on jobs. For Michael, it's all about regain his lost riches and getting out of being caught up in a brutal drug cartel war to go back home to his family. 
 
Trevor 
 
Provided the despicable idiot actually survives. Trevor goes to Las Venturas with his cronies and blows ALL of his heist fortune by gambling it away, spending it on drugs, drink, high-class prostitutes, luxury hotels, among other self-indulgent stuff. He then goes back to Sand Shores to live his life as usual in a trailer, dirty, scruffy and a down-and-out dope wrecked fiend. Michael has long stopped talking to him and wants no association with him whatsoever. He's somehow lost contact with Franklin. Trevor comes back home only to find that his territory has been taken over by a new outlaw biker gang called the Angel's Of Death, who are also now in a vicious gang war with the Lost MC. Trevor is not even a minor player in the meth trade in his area, he has no standing in his local underworld, so he decides to get clean, find a way to get back on his feet and make Trevor Philips Enterprises bustling with business again. He makes a truce with the Lost MC and agrees to help them in their battle with the AOD, but in reality he tries to cleverly play the two sides against each other in a series of cunning moves, while at the same time, rebuilding his own criminal empire. Oscar's Mexican drug cartel are now in a brutal war with Madrazo's drug cartel for control of drug transportation routes in the wilderness and countryside. Oscar's group supply the Aztecas street gang with drugs, and Madrazo's group supply the Vagos street gang with drugs - Trevor supplies both the cartels with arms via his arms trafficking, and some of this leads him to go back to Los Santos again, where he comes into contact with Franklin again. Trevor helps Lamar via Franklin get good drug connections in exchange for help on his missions. Trevor is asked by Oscar to help safely escort drug shipments into Los Santos, due to the fact the two have a history of working together, and they have patched up their differences. During a drug shipment run, Trevor and some of Oscar's men spot Madrazo in a car and shoot at the car, Madrazo escapes unscathed, but his wife dies in the attack - Trevor did not know the groups were at war because of his long absence away in LV, and he becomes enraged since he still loves Madrazo's wife, despite their affair ending a while ago. Oscar becomes even more brutal and evil, and he tries to kill Madrazo , the rest of his family and all his men once and for all. Madrazo, scared and desperate begs Micahel to contact Trevor to help him in this war with Oscar, and Michael reluctantly does so. Trevor links up with Michael once more and they both agree to put aside their quarrel and help each other out with their own personal agendas and objectives, which will includes heists and the like. 
 
Oh....and Debra survived Trevor's brutal episode of violence, but Floyd did die. Debra called 911 on her mobile, and paramedics reach her just in time to save her.

I would like to see a story where they have all their money stripped from them and are forced again to start taking scores.

Franklin would again, be forced into the ghetto. We see a bit more of the Familie and Ballas, and see who runs them and how mentally stable they are.

Michael I would love to see most lose his money. Why? Because seeing how he and his family copes with poverty after 10 years of being rich opens up so many good character development opportunities.

And Trevor... Well we'll probably see the same sh*t we saw in the vanilla game. There's not really a lot of room for character development here.

For the twist, they could always throw him in rehab... I mean Rehab Island billboards are everywhere and whenever Trevor would speak to Patricia on the phone you got a sense of his "normal" self.. idk, from a totally dynamic standpoint if Trevor gets clean of mind and body, we can see a totally different side to him.

And then you know, just when you're getting used to it... Relapse.

@Official General: Those are some really good ideas. I'd love to play that DLC.

 

The only thing that wouldn't work that well is Lamar becoming the leader of the Families. He's not smart enough, and the game shows us time and time again that he's incredibly impulsive (much like Trevor, but to a lesser degree) and never thinks before acting.

 

Lamar would probably lead the Families for three days, then do or say something stupid that would get him killed. However, if he had a smarter, level headed co leader, I could see it working out.

Exactly don't you see ? That's where Franklin comes into it. Because of Lamar's incompetence, he's compelled to come and help Lamar and bring the gang back on their feet again, among other reasons why he returns to the gang life.

It's easy to write an overview. Now actually write the script for your DLC. We'll see how much better you can do then.

 

Anyway, that'd be really cool. I'd pay $10 for that.

For Franklin, I want some Tanisha missions where he kills her new husband, and then becomes her pimp, along with putting Tanya to work hustling on the street. Oh, and his auntie as well because she stole his half of the house.

 

For Trevor, some actual dealing missions would be nice. Something like those ice cream truck missions they had in a previous version of the game. Would be a great way to introduce some real crazy personalities to the game like crack heads and meth addicts.

 

For Michael, he needs to make a new movie where he is an actor, and he each scene involves him doing stuff that eventually make it into the actual movie (viewable at a movie theater). Stunts, car chases, lots of action sequences.
