Wow, your post there demands so much respect - especially with you being such a "holier than thou" individual who looks down on others.

 

 

Dude, an American would be incredibly boring.

Not as boring as the solitary existance of your one brain cell to think all Americans are the same.

America has virtually every race and culture out there - but I do agree with you in that another US-based GTA would suck.

 

Thinking about it - he's also an idiot to just say 'American' as like I said, there is no such thing as a recognised 'American ethnicity'.

I think you're the one with the "holier than thou" thing going on. Seeing as I'm currently going out with a Croat, I would advise you not to jump to conclusions so you can promote your trendy-tolerant agenda.

Do you call her 'scummy' to her face bro?

"My scummy little scumbag". inlove.gif

lol.gif j/k man.

 

Ok, I appologise for being very harsh with you - especially seeing your new here. I just thought it might be inappropriate to generalise Turks, Croats and Albanians as scummy. Infact, it's wrong to generalise any group of people as anything other than their self-determined identity - especially something which can mean something bad.

 

Take care man, and welcome to this site. smile.gif

I don't think we'll be seeing any more foreign characters like Serbian Niko for a while. And honestly, I think the next GTA just might be set in London, people seem to really want it, and Rockstar claims they listen to the fans.

I totally agree with you there - as much as I dislike the idea of another GTA set in a developed country, I would bet my bottom dollar it'll be in London. There was a huge fanbase for it before the 1st IV trailer, who were disappointed it was not done earlier, and with yet another US (more specifically LC) set GTA, the fanbase and frustration it was not done earlier is only bigger.

Good news for all those wanting it in London I suppose. smile.gif

With the world's current political climate - it's not gonna happen, especially with how controversial R* and GTA seem to already be thanks to dickheads like JT and other extreme right-wingers.

Well uh, Vic, Toni, Tommy, Claude, CJ were all American. Can't add Niko as he came here illegaly.

 

So I guess you're not a big GTA fan.

Yeah, though you can consider Toni as Italian but he was American since he's lived there for a long time. Tommy was also Italian (well he was from an Italian mafia family.)

Claude was plain American, CJ was American as well and Vic was from DR.

A English South African man. Been in the sh*t, ate sh*t, and married sh*t. Just kidding. biggrin.gif

Fought blacks and fought whites. Sometime both. Got wet in African rivers without the doubt their being Crocodiles lying nearby. Leveled a village full of African Children combatants with a superior firepower of a Mil Mi-24. Fought in a desert in no man's land against monkeys with sophisticated finger nails that can crawl through Kevlar or gouge eyes out of a former SAS mercenary's. The monkey's also fought with sophisticated equipment with primitive bows and arrows. Fought in dense jungles with competitive mercenary organizations. Got in Mexican standoff. Between the White, the dark, and brown.

 

 

Basically I just want a White South African man in the next GTA.

That'd be cool.... but how about someone really random, like Iceland or Belgium for instance dozingoff.gif

 

hear me out - someone who has nothing to do with gangs or crime from the off - they have to learn on the way! Being a race affiliated with a gang, like Italian (Mafia) Jamaican (Yardies) etc limits the game a bit - GTA shouldn't about crawling up the family ladder and being the boss, its about working for other people, to make yourself. Think Claude and Niko - Revenge! biggrin.gif

Well, you may not have to deal with an *American protagonist, but he'll most likely be white.

And why would he most likely be white exactly?

 

Anyways I'd like to see the return of the gang building aspect and you play a black gang memeber making his gang the biggest gang or you play a black small time drug dealer trying to build a criminal empire.

 

I'd also like to see a mexican and you play a mexican drug dealer or mexican gang member. If we had to be a white person I'd like to either play as a Italian mobster trying to bring his family back to the top or as a British South African, and I expalined how he could work in my Places Outside America thread.

 

Also a Asian gangster would also be a breath of fresh air and we either play as Korean, Chinese or Japanese mobsters but we'll more then likely be playing a Triad in Chinatown Wars.

 

Either way I hope R* doesn't do a black or white character since they've been main characters in every game but decide to do new charcter races like Asian or Mexican.

Well, it's the norm.

 

Claude = white

Tommy = white

Toni = white

Niko = white

 

So....ya.

But why the f*ck another protagonist from the same race? Make some brown at least if that's the case.

 

We had 4 white, 2 black and no brown.

Next should be Hispanic.

For the uneducated, ethnicity means race, so let's hear it. Rockstar developers said they went with Eastern European Niko becuase they felt the Italian-American character was played out. Well, what do you think? Should they stay with foreign characters, accents and all, or go back to the citizens. Whatever they decide, the question remains, what will be Grand Theft Auto 5's protagonist's ethnicity?

 

* Caucasion (Italian, Irish, etc.)

 

* African-American

 

* Hispanic

 

* Asian

 

* Other (Indian, etc.)

 

What are you thoughts on the subject? Me, I say they go with a Hispanic character. They've already done white and black characters, I believe it's time to switch it up and go either Hispanic or Asian.

Hey topic starter. read my signature! what a real problem eh?

Well before 2004 black main charcters were rare. So you have no real merit to call that a norm. So since 2004 that has been 2 white characters and 1 black character so no the norm wouldn't be for the next charcter to be white but a different race.

 

The best bets are either black again or something new like Asian or Hispanic.

I'd like to see a Hispanic one,not a Mexican,but something like a Cuban,a Colombian,or a Brazilian.Make it Cartel-themed(Vice City was Cartel-themed,but you played an Italian-American)

 

I mean,look,we had five protagonists.Only Niko was a confirmed immigrant,although Toni was hinted to be an Italian immigrant.I'd like an immigrant,but not a Mexican one,we had plenty of Mexican gang-bangers in SA,and a Hispanic of Mexican origin would be over-expected and it's over-done in pop culture.

I say maybe a Hispanic/South American character would be nice. But I don't want the whole f*cking game to be centred around gangs that are of the same ethnicity as the chanarcter.

Cartels are a must in any GTA IMO, but I don't want them to be the focal part like gang wars in SA.

 

Otherwise, I don't really mind what ethnicity - he just got to be a very well developed character like Niko.

Well, I think ethnicity is important as it does set the tone for the game. Carl set the tone for the gangster, hood theme. Niko set the tone for the immigrant, Russian criminals theme. So, it does play some significance.

 

But, I'm now thinking of a new idea. Playing an English African-American protagonist. Now that would be a new experience, a good one.

The Cartel are a must, I agree with you 100%. I really liked them in GTA3, too bad you don't work for them.

A jewish man would guarantee the comic relief in the story. I mean, look what Mel Brooks did in his marlvelous comedies. If you tell the story carefully, it might turn out to be hilaruous. Although it's hard to image someone of jewish descent killing people, it's still GTA, so I don't think this will happen some day, but who knows...

Hispanic/latin. We've already played as white guys (Tommy & Tony (Claude doesn't count)), and black guys (CJ & Victor) and now European plus I'd really like playing as a hispanic character.

An Irish character would be pretty neat, something different. The European protagonists like Niko are the most intriguing and able to create the more diverse characters so I am hoping Rockstar stick with them.
