Officer tenpenny best playable character or gtfo#jokes.GTA V protags are weak when it comes to Niko in the sense of emotion.Michael talks about regretting decisions he made,but with Niko,you actually sense he trully feels bad.»

Indeed

 

I just saw the trailer and it gave me goosebumps for an odd reason.I remember dissecting the license plate of the red GT escaping from the police thinking it was the release date,then hearing "that magic",seeing the plane emerging from the Vinewood sign.

 

Just wow,it feels like yesterday seeing the trailer and seeing everyone dissect every single frame....makes you think how the beta was like ( as shown in the trailer ).

Mike is the f*ckin man. I love when he goes on his angry ti-raids. He's no doubt my favorite protagonist of all times. Love him.

Mah man Mike, yeah I wasn't really convinced with the story but Michael is actually my 2nd favorite protagonist in the series. Ironically I didn't like him at all in pre-release times and then he really grew on me, he's relatable, in some way. I just wish they made him a little more serious, he's a pro but only at certain times it's shown awesomly.

Overall, a greatly written character, so props to Rockstar for that. Most of his lines are gold.

IMO, Michael's the best out of the three. I'm not telling Trevor and Franklin are bad, but Michael is just better than them. Franklin just complains and whines about everything, and isn't loyal to his best friends. When you decide to have a best friend, you must share problems and help solve them, but Franklin doesn't do that with Lamar, during the story. Trevor is a psychopath, he is the most funniest out of the three, but isn't a good protagonist. Michael's more balanced, he is wise, intelligent, and can sometimes get angry. IMO he also has the best clothing of all three, and I generally like his lifestyle more than the others. The only problem with Michael is his childish attraction towards movies, and his family. Michael could very well become my favorite, if he just tortured his family and buried them in North Yankton.

Michael and john marston are polar opposites

 

john-of schottish descent

 

micheal - of irish descent

 

john- forced into law enforcement by feds in order to be reunited with his family

 

Michael-made a deal with authorities to set up his ally in order to protect his family

 

john forced by feds to take down his old gang and  leader

 

Michael set up in a wit-sec program to protect his identity so that his psychotic running buddy (who he presumes is dead ) hopefully wont find him

 

john-roams the American southwest

 

Michael- lives on the west coast

 

john -deadeye

 

Michael-bullet time

 

that's all I got.

Michael is easily my favorite of the three GTA V protagonists, and is even one of my favorites in the series overall. He kinda has that icy Mafia coolness vibe that Tommy Vercetti brought to the table (although Michael isn't a Mafioso), and is also a professional thief/bank robber like Neil McCauley from Heat (it's no coincidence that you can easily make Michael look like McCauley's twin), making for a really cool protagonist. I also found his history and overall personality interesting, and I really liked his sense of humor too. And while I found his family members annoying for the most part, I still enjoyed his interactions with them (especially in "Daddy's Little Girl", with Jimmy). Not even the FIB angle (which I felt was overdone) took away from his character for me.

He is the most important and developed character in the game. 
He also delivers the best lines in the game. 

"You forget a thousand things everyday. Make sure this is one of them."
"It's bullsh*t. Go to college, then you can rip people off and get paid for it. It's called capitalism."

"Surviving is winning, Franklin, everything else is bullsh*t. Fairy tales spun by people too afraid to look life in the eye. Whatever it takes, kid: survive."

 

The veteran of heists and mentor of Franklin.

 

And on top of everything, he is the most classy dressed of the protagonists.

Well, when Michael was having conversation about hipsters, it was so funny I couldn't keep my eyes on the road and fell down a ditch upside down.

I love his mini-rant he has in Trevor's meth lab with Dave Norton and Steve Haines with Trevor.

 

Oh, you're f*cking A-right it's sarcasm! You f*ck! A few weeks ago, I was happily retired, sulking by my swimming pool, and my psychotic best friend shows up out of nowhere to torture me over mistakes I made -- honest mistakes-- I made over a decade ago! We, our little posse, are flat f*cking broke, but hey, let's go out and spend two million dollars on a tandem rotor f*cking chopper, so I can go steal nerve gas from f*cking terrorists! Forgive me, you ignorant f*ck, but sarcasm is all I've f*cking got! Sarcasm, and a room full of you c*nts!
