Anyone who's played Bully remembers the protagonist Jimmy Hopkins, right? Well how would you think he'll fit in the GTA universe?

Well jimmy never murdered anyone.  But he could give an ass whooping.

All this bully nostalgia makes me want to go buy another copy of the game :(

Jimmy could've been a Lester-esque character, what with him helping out all those nerds and stuff, they might've helped him out with stuff like that.

 

But yeah, it leads to the speculation of what Jimmy did after graduating.

 

 

E. Look what I found!

 

 

One idea that some people have suggested to Houser is that Rockstar makes a game about Bully protagonist Jimmy Hopkins as an adult, and that the game be a Grand Theft Auto title.

 
Houser says, that likely won't happen.
 
"I never saw him as being that level of degenerate," he said. "I saw him as a bad teen, because he comes from a tough home, who could go either direction. He's not going to be a carjacker. He's too white collar for that already. He's at a sh*t private school, but he's going to end up being really happy because he's at the worst bit of his life, or being a sort of messed up white collar doofus.
 
"He was an unpleasant soul, but he had a heart. To some extent you could say the same was true of [Grand Theft Auto 4's] Niko in a bizarre way. But [Jimmy's] not trying to burn down the school, he's more trying to stand up to injustice."

I am not sure, but I think Bully is in the same universe as the HD era of GTA. A bully sequel would be cool IMO. But jimmy in GTA?? I am not sure

He was just a bully teen at school.
Do all school bullies become criminals?

They could bring him into the HD era just to kill him, like Johnny, or Terry, or Clay, or Ashley , or Marnie, or UL Paper, or Rocko, or potentially Packie...

I don't want to see any more crossovers or reoccuring characters unless they come with sh*t-proof umbrellas from R*.

Um, Marnie never died, UL Paper can die, it is optional, but it is canon that he does die: And who the F cares about Rocco? He was an asshole. If yo played TBOGT, you should hate him. And stop thinking that R* only kills off characters, don't even get into Trevor killing the main members of the Lost. Judging by your avatar, I won't say anything more

I don't know about Jimmy as a GTA protagonist. Sure he was a badass, but it's hard to imagine him using a tech nine or AK47.

Jimmy would be doing petty crimes though, no? Does he really come off as a killer?

Gary could be a secondary antagonist.

Jimmy could be a minor character.

Bully is in the same universe as GTA and Manhunt. So it is theoretically possible that Jimmy could someday show up in a GTA game but It's highly unlikely.

I saw your signature before your post, and it made me think the same thing. :p

 

If anything he could make a really small cameo, standing outside a house during one mission in the game or something like that. I don't want to see Jimmy as part of GTA's story.

I remember right after IV came out, people thought Jimmy was in the game because there was a ped at one of Elizabeta's cutscenes that had his same vest.

I remember that. Plus I remember there was a ped in the Hove Beach train station that looked like him too

Does anybody remember the character Pathos who was dressed like a Bullworth student? I think he was supposed to be a rapper.

Could have been an Easter Egg since its possible that he went to Bullworth. A lot of Rappers claim to be from the streets despite having affluent upbringings and going to private schools and such so Rockstar could be making a subtle jab at that.

I actually think Bullworth is in the HD universe, and the HD universe of GTA is the same universe that Bully exists in. We could see an older Jimmy Hopkins.

Jimmy Hopkins doesn't fit into a GTA. It feels dumb to have him as protagonist again. It would do nothing better than a Remastered edition of Vice City, which some VC fanboys always wish to have.

I have no problem with Bullworth as setting, but Jimmy Hopkins in a GTA is too weird to be done.

Maybe Gary could be a future GTA protagonist. He seems more suited to doing crimes and killing people. And then one mission could involve you getting revenge on Jimmy.

I never got my hands on Bully. If Hopkins is like any other bully then he'll try and live off his reputation as a younger man for years to come so yeah, it would be interesting to see him in a game if GTA ever went near Bullworth.

I could definitely see Gary as the homicidal type compared to the other characters from "Bully."

He's not really the same kind of crazy it takes to be a GTA protagonist though. Gary's the kind of guy who Rockstar would paint as having crippling social issues, being sexually frustrated, extremely narcissistic, and possibly joining some sort of supremacist gang later in life to deal with his problems.

 

It'd be really cool to play from the perspective of someone like that, and have that information about him be open and told to you from the get-go, but Rockstar doesn't seem like the kind of developer that'd be down for it. :/

Honestly, as badass as Jimmy is, I highly doubt we'll see him as a protagonist in a future GTA game. But I wouldn't be surprised if he at least made a cameo appearance in one. He was 15 in Bully, which was released in 2006, so that makes him around 23 nowadays. In my opinion, Gary would be a better protagonist in GTA. The guy got expelled from Bullsworth and would likely drop out of school. So I could see him performing numerous of crimes.

Jimmy could be in GTA as a lawyer maybe in some future game the protag is facing some serious time and Jimmy helps him fight the case against him I don't see him as a protag or a crimminal in the GTA universe maybe some crooked politician.

Bully came out in 2006 but it doesn't take place in 2006 the cars and clothing makes it feel like its in the 80s or 90s

I never truly knew what the time setting for Bully was. Sure, some people have said it was 2006, but then you had a couple of arcade games that had 1995 as the copyright date. Also, some things didn't seem so recent up to that point. I don't remember people having cellphones in the game. Also, some of the cars looked old and you also had wooden roller coasters. Also, I remember unlocking a digital camera, but it looked like a 90s model.

The arcades put it at 1995 at the earliest. But then, in the Jocks clubhouse I think, there are signs about 2005 and 2007. The calender found in game matches September 2006.
