Hey there, guys. I don't know if you know that, but I'll write it here. About an hour ago, by an accident, I learned that Paul Walker, actor known as Brian O'Conner from Fast & Furious series, died as a passenger in a car crash yesterday. He was leaving an charity event to help victims of Typhoon Haiyan with his friend, Roger Rodas. More info of the accident is on his Wikipedia site. I'll wait for the 7th part of the FnF series with hope though, in hope if it'll ever come out. And in his memory:
Rest in Peace, Paul.
Truly saddening news.
I forgot to mention that I made my latest MP in memory of Paul Walker. It's inspired off Fast and Furious.
I feel as if the stock market would of made more sense in GTA IV, considering Wall St. and all. GTA V should of had a casino since the game revolves around money. It also could of had great potential for a heist.
All 3 of GTA V's endings suffered from a dose of laziness. None of them seemed to stand out compared to Vice City or San Andreas. Except for A. Which is in my opinion, the best and canon ending in GTA V.
First off, let me start by saying I picked C because I wanted every character to survive, not because it was the best one (in fact it was the worst, but I'll get to that in a moment.
Throughout the game, Trevor was always the weak link. He was the main reason the FIB was in Michaels ass for half the game. He was the reason why Merryweather was such a big threat throughout the story. He was the reason Michaels family was almost killed. If Michael and Franklin had the guts, Trevor would be 6 ft under long ago.
Lets put this into perspective. When we're introduced to Franklin, we see a young and ambitious street hustler making the most out of his life. When we're introduced to Michael, we see a successful and rich family man. When we're introduced to Trevor, we see a deadbeat alcoholic that lives in a trailer. Which one seems to have the least to lose? Trevor even admits to having a worthless life. In "Bury the Hatchet" we can see Trevor being suicidal, asking Michael to pull the trigger on him when he finds out one of the only people who care about him is dead. We also see him breaking down when he has Patricia stripped away from him and finds out his Mum was only a part of his imagination.
I feel like the 3 endings have a similar style to "Blood Brothers" in GTA IV. You clip the useless druggie, or the double crossing yet successful man. No matter how much you dislike a man, the influence he has plays a greater role than how much of a dick he is. Would you assassinate the president because you thought he was a dick?
In the final mission we see Devin pressuring us to kill Michael. Now, let me ask you this. Who had the stronger bond? Trevor and Franklin, or Franklin and Michael? To be honest I didn't see much bonding between Trevor and Franklin at all. When Michael and Franklin first meet, we see Michael rise out of the backseat pointing a gun at Franklins temple, forcing him to drive through his bosses window. We then see them meet up for a beer, only to be interrupted by Jimmy's antics where they must work together for the first time. When Trevor and Franklin first meet, they shake hands. Who do you think has the stronger bond? Also note that Devin Weston, ONE rich scumbag is asking you to kill Michael. The FIB, a whole government agency, is asking you to kill Trevor. It wouldn't really be a hard decision if you ask me.
Now lets run through the endings. Ending B is where you kill Michael. Now this is a plain dick move right here. Coming from the fact that Devin never even payed you for risking your life to steal a couple of cars. (Same could go for the FIB, but just because one douchebag government agent told you to doesn't mean the rest of the FIB agrees with him) I mentioned before that Michael and Franklin have a special bond. It just doesn't make sense for a friendship like that to end so abruptly. When Franklin is about to kill Michael he has the option of dropping him off the edge or pulling him up. If you pull him up he still jumps down for some reason. After Michael is killed, Franklin walks away, talking on his phone for 10 seconds, then the credits roll.
Ending C means all 3 protagonists survive - Hurrah! Too bad it's one of the most plot hole ridden, rushed and boring endings in GTA. We first see Trevor and Michael arguing (Wow what a suprise) and they invite the rest of the Merryweather crew to their party so they can kill the rest of them off - wait what? I thought Merryweather was a huge private army? How they hell can they kill off a damn private army? After that, Trevor Frank and Mikey have one last conference. They tie up all loose ends. IN ONE GOD DAMN MISSION. They decide to kill off everyone that would get in their way. So you kill off some Asian bloke who lead this gang and also kidnapped Michael, too bad this wasn't used for a seperate mission where you could have a Chinese gang war or something. That stretch dude from the warehouse shootout, also had great potential for a gang war related mission, Steve Haines, one of the weakest antagonists in GTA history, and finally we kidnap Devin, take him beside a cliff where we watch the sunset peak over the horizon and finally push him off the edge. You know, I don't really mind that final scene, it's quite badass. But after you kill a government agent, a gangster surrounded by bloodthirsty ballers, and an Asian gang leader without a scratch in less than 2 hours (game time) , and then proceed to live a normal life afterwards with nobody on your tail or wanting to kill you, it doesn't really make much sense.
Now, for the canon ending. In this mission you chase Trevor until he skids into a gas tank where he falls out and lies in a pool of gas, waiting for the gas to ignite and setting him ablaze by either Franklin or Michael. Afterwards Michael and Trevor have a deep chat for a minute or so. You see, this ending has a moral. Your can distinguish who your true friends are just by the bond you have and not by how long you've known each other. You also might need to sacrifice those who don't have much to lose to save yourself and your loved ones.
So those are my thoughts on the endings of GTA V. What do you think?
TL;DR: Ending A is canon and the other 2 are horse sh*t.
It's their goal to cut as much content out, and then scam you by making you buy it back for ridiculous amounts, no doubt they will make some 'Skimmer' pack for $15.99, the plane probably wouldn't even work, don't support DLC though, it's because of those who support DLC that we got so much content cut out.
If the Beach Bum pack was free, and EFLC offered 2 whole new stories and features for a price, what makes you think Rockstar will make you pay for minimal things? What? because you don't like the game you assume Rockstar are money hungry pigs? I'm sure you have reason behind that statement.
