Seriously, I'd rather have an cold, asexual, Terminator protagonist who doesn't give a jack sh*t but wouldn't do stupid sh*t like Trevor.

I wouldn't give two sh*ts if the protagonist was gay. It would only be a game and I don't go around all day thinking that Franklin is so straight that he's lingering for pussay right now, I should start my game and find my boy Franklin a prostitute or try and get him and Tanisha or whatever back together, they are so cute ZOMG.

Knowing R* they will put TOO much male on male affection scenes in this game just to screw with us knowing how sexually perverted they are.

All those 69 jokes, jesus. makes me wonder if rockstar themselves are gay or seriously perverted.
They gotta be if they have naked guys hanging out on a mountain and have the female characters showering with bikini tops and strippers not taking off their tops in lap dances online.

fwiw there's no way to tell whether someone's gay from the way they act, or the jokes they make. You can assume by their behavior all you want, but likening homosexuality to perversion and over-sexuality is exactly what kills their movement for a lot of people. :/

 

I liked that Jimmy Hopkins had alternative options if that was what the player wanted to do. GTA IV at least had males on the dating site, it would have been nice if we saw one of those implemented without it being camp. Just a normal guy who likes going bowling or something, and then a coffee option afterwards, would have been cool.

As it was said before,the fact that he is gay would distract us from the story itslelf,it would just make things weird,and it would affect the story and the game

But what about a woman?

 

It would distract from the story how? It would make things weird how? How in the hell would it certainly affect the story and game?

 

Lots of people seem to be making the assumption that Rockstar would shove a stereotypical flamboyant gay person through our eye sockets, if they were to make a protagonist that was gay. However, I'd guess that if anything they'd do what a few people have suggested and just make it so the protagonist can be gay by choice, unless they had some amazing master plan involving a gay protagonist.

​Note: they probably don't. Ha, rockstar making a masterful storyline.

Who cares? Really? Being gay has to do with sexual preference and you cannot have sex in GTA, pointless!

Not in V, but you could in the other two most recent main releases, and the characters still flirt with other characters sometimes and allude to their own sex lives. It's not a big part of the game, but neither are fingerless gloves or radio station genres.

You still can in V, actually, with strippers or prostitutes. And as you say, beyond that, there are many indications of sexuality throughout the series.

Noting that Tom Stubbs' penis was the first nudity in GTA, i guess you're right.

 excluding the hot coffee or the whorebar both in SA because you needed mods to access them.

Can we stop discussing the statistical merits of homosexuality (1/4 people are gay? Are you retarded?) and close this thread?


ARE YOU A RETARD ONLY 1.8 PERCENT OF PEOPLE ARE GAY YOU STUPID MUTHERf*ckER.

I'm not sure how you would calculate those sorta statistics, as not everyone who is gay is open about it, and what's considered 'gay' is not the same across cultures. I'm not sure why the person above me is getting so upset, or where they're getting their numbers from, either.

 

1/4 doesn't sound too far off, though.

I don't think that's a good idea. Maybe have it be an option or something. To force it on you would be terrible.

If the plot calls for a gay protagonist, there shall be a gay protagonist. If the plot calls for a sassy black woman, the protagonist should be a sassy black woman. Seriously, let Rockstar do the writing. They know their stuff.

Well Omar Little was gay...and it didn't really make him any less of a badass motherf*cker. Still, I couldn't help but feel squicked during his boyfriend kissing scenes. Maybe that's homophobic to some, but that's just the way I am. I'm a straight guy, gayness ain't my thing. Two girls kissing is a different story though.

Please, just no. This is Grand Theft Auto, not gay theft auto. Seriously, Rockstar has already proved how bad the protagonists can be. A gay protagonist will be the worst personality ever.

A gay protagonist would be a pointless gimmick but I don't see how being gay affects your personality. Am I in the wrong century or something, what is this the 18th century or somethin'? People are gay, get over it. It affects nothing but your sexuality.
 

 

I don't want Rockstar telling my kids it's ok to be gay and teaching them how to have gay sex. 

"Street Mix and robban like this."

 

It's funny when homophobes can't tell they're being mocked.

 

Street Mix seems like the worst homophobe here and he's only made one post.

It can have a gay protagonist, but what difference would it make? sexual orientation is not important to the plot I guess.

You made a good point with that anecdote. But, I wouldn't think that way. On the contrary, I ould think: Finally! A Gay main character that isn't flamboyant and feminine.

The most important thing in protagonist is his personality, not sexual taste. If he would be interesting and likeable I couldn't care less if he's gay or not. The only thing I wouldn't like is waving the gayness flag around. He (or she) just need to be written well, but after seeing Trevor I guess that was the bottom. 

 

I believe it could make some noise around though. Hard to say what LGBT groups and gay haters would do if the game protagonist would be openly homosexual, but maybe nothing at all would happen. In F:NV we got homosexuals and nobody was making fuss about it.

pffff I think most if not all GTAs had a gay protagonist:
Claude: You can see the way he looks at his bosses when he gets an assignment, no wonder he's speechless

Tommy: He doesn't fight back when Phil is drunk and makes moves on him

CJ: I'm pretty sure he had some sexy time with a few male companions back when he was in Liberty City

Niko: I don't think I need to explain, do I? c;

Luis: Totally gay

Trevor: Nuff said

 

what?
