For the most part, I always think LCS' true protagonist is Salvatore Leone instead of Toni because I always think Sal is the one who has true motivates through the story. The main antagonist is Sal's enemy as well, not Toni's. We did see how Toni got made though but Toni's story seems like the secondary story for the game to me.

That could be said about Luis as well. TBOGT's true protagonist is Gay Tony in my opinion. Pretty much like Cipriani, Luis for the most part only deal with Gay Tony's problems. I wish TBOGT explore Armando, Henrique, and his Mom a lot more. That way, I can feel Luis as the real protagonist.

Franklin seems no brainer. He was underdeveloped, thus he ended up being the third wheel in V. I always see him as the secondary character at the best.

Well to some extend, Trevor is like a protagonist and a background character. He did have his own purposes with his gang and a vital plot in Michael's story, but then again, V is Michael's story, so Trevor gets a pass from me.

So any of GTA protagonists that doesn't feel like protagonists to you?

Luis, I'd have preferred playing as Armando and having a story based on him and the Northwood Dominican Drug Dealers, selling drugs and guns to Libery City's nightlife while fending off the other gangs, and somehow fit in Luis and the Museum Piece mission to still complete the "Trinity".

Trevor is more fitting as a mission giver/antagonist rather than an actual playable character

Toni, even though I like the mafia vibe LCS gives I'd have preferred playing as 8ball instead.

Toni C., Luis F.L., Franklin C.. imo LCS, TBoGT and V is like Sal's, Tony's and Michael's story to me. (even though LCS is my favorite of all GTA games, but still..)

Franklin, it just felt like he didn't belong with these characters. Entire storyline was focused on Michael and Trevor, and I just didn't care too much for Franklin.

Franklin is technically you and you're just caught up in the middle of these guys...
Imagine if GTAIV implemented the three way protag. It would be cool to see Niko as the Franklin and the other 2 protags be Faustin and Dimitri.

+1

Franklin's story is finished at the end of the 15th mission, the other 45 mission you are like observing Michael and Trevor as Franklin because you are stuck with them and looking for an exit.

Franklin was the real protagonist of GTA V, he used the other 2 to get rich, Michael felt like a mission boss tbh

Definitely agree with the others here. Luis and Toni are pretty similiar, they lack character and the stories revolve more around their bosses (Sal and Gay Tony who are both memorable).

Luis

 

If you look at any other GTA protagonist, you can see what type of criminal they are. But to me, Luis felt like he was like a nightclub bouncer and never really understood why he's committing all these crimes.

Victor Vance from VCS. He was a good guy doing bad things for a good cause. Felt a little weird for a GTA game
