Watch a Swedish guy pop a guy in the face because he refused a cup of coffee!

Swedish? LMAO, then I want him to speak Swedish all the time, so I'm one of the only members around here (with whoever else from Sweden) that understands it! AND if it was set in Sweden I would jump and party!

Not a bad idea actually, it reminds me of somebody who proposed a native american, that would be cool, it would fit the parody in GTA, an outsider in a strange place, which is an american city.

I wouldnt mind an asian character. To work for the yakuza would be sweet!

If not asian then Italian. I think the one I would

like least is a black character. The "hood" thing got old fast in SA.

but your saying the tirmesome, played out mafioso theme in III and VC didn't get old? Well at least you're letting some of your SA hate show because we all know most of the people that hated SA hated it because you were black and that's it really.

 

But I'd rather play a black guy again then another Italian/ Eastern European/ or white American.

 

I'd rather play either a Asian Yakuza mobster or Chinese Triad member or a Tong member. Also a Latin or Spanish charcter is due.

Couldn't have said it better myself. Half the hate on SA is because you play as a black character and the same is said about VCS a lot. I do NOT want to see a goddamn Italian mafioso again, the mafia theme has been done THREE times already. LCS, VC and III!

Italian characters is becoming a too original aspect to the game.

 

Developers should focus more on Far East characters and continue the Russian Mob.

 

If they do a black guy or any other guy, I hope they don't make a stereotypical gangster.

 

A successive middle class auto repair manager that gets caught up in the middle of criminal act will do.

 

No mafia, hired gun, gangster, or immigrant.

I also have a pet peeve of a person raising his/her gun sideways. I just hate it with a passion. People don't look cool doing it. It looks retarded. So don't it.

I suggest a combination of the two. Black Irish. Either that, or Jamaican. Little Jacob was awesome in IV, so playing as a Rastafarian may be pretty interesting.

Couldn't have said it any better myself. I too am pretty pissed with the stereotypical themes. Perhaps the reason I liked VCS's theme and Victor Vance so much is because he's a black guy (or half black, half white) who sets up an organised crime empire. I also really liked his gang, as they were so original.

 

I think with our ever-intigrating socities, it's vital to let go of those stereotypes of Black Gangbanger/Italian Mafia. Infact, R*'s stance has always been to mock, rather than support such stereotypical and racist undertones.

 

That said, I really don't mind what ethnicity the character is, as long as the game's theme is not centred around that ethnicities stereotpe. But I just still feel that maybe a Hispanic/Latino or East-Asian character is somewhat overdue like some others said.

Vic Vance wasn't stereotypical. Thank God. Almost all the characters were, except Claude. Not much on him.

 

Technically he's half Dominican and Caucasian.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I want an austrian (European I know), but I want at least someone who's ethic isn't overdone. Hispanics/Blacks/Italians/eastern asian I mean christ, they're completely done with.

 

How about uh.. a Hungarian, or one of the last distinct person of the Frankish. I don't care if a Muslim character is going to cause controversy, the story could be gold. Dannish, Finnish, Maylaysian, Bolivian, Thai.

I liked Niko character a lot! If you ever look into Eastern Europe history they been through a lot but the Balkans area have a history of violence like no other European country.

 

 

Russians have been integrating with our society for about a decade. I love it when people develop Russian as evil characters as a befriending devious stabs you in the back sort of guy that all ways murders his leader to becomes more evil leader.

Since when has a Hispanic or East Asian protagonist been done? There were gangs of them but what? We haven't played as them or known any story about any character from there.

 

And how was CJ stereotype I don't get that? Just because he was from the ghetto that doesn't make him a stereotype. But Vic Vance rules, I got you on that.

My ideas:

Irishman-Irish Mob-Boston theme

Colombian/Cuban-Drug Cartel-Vice City 80's Theme

African-American-Street Gang/African-American Mafia-Detroit

Jamaican-Yardies

Asian-Triad or Yakuza-San Fierro

Russian-Russian Mafiya-Liberty City

Maybe Pakistani-but probably not

Nah, there really is an African-American Mafia, or Organized Crime. Not all black gangs are street gangs. I'm sure you've heard of Frank Lucas or Nicky Barnes, them dudes were organized.

Black Mafia Family from Detroit is a orgainized crime African American group that strayed away from the typical gang( Bloods, Crips, GDs etc.) and criminal enterprise( Supreme Team, BEBO, Nicky Barnes and the Magnificent 7 etc..) and adapted the Mafia theme. Actually a big case against them happened in 2005 when Jacob The Jewler was arrested on conspircy to launder 270 million in drug money and the BMF had something like 930 kilos of cocaine seized.

 

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Black_Mafia_Family

 

Here's articles on the Black Mafia and Junior Black Mafia of Philedelphia.

 

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Black_Mafia_Family

 

Like Skarafce said there are numerous African american orgainzed crime groups that are led by 1 person as well as groups like the BMF that is more "Mafia" like. Alot of street gangs have been considered "organized" enough to be in the orgaized crime catagory. The Latin Kings got RICO indictments in 2006 as well as MS-13 and the GDs were served RICO indictments back in the 90s when Larry Hoover was running them from prison and they were bringing in over 1 billion in drug money.

I actually didn't mean organized Afro-American gangs but anything knows as "Afro-American Mafia", now I know all about "Russian Mafia" and "Italian Mafia" but haven't heard of Afro-American mafia.

 

But whatever - Mafia = organized crime so that's the best term to use wink.gif

 

skarface1013: I remember you used this term on another topic a long time ago and somebody started something about you being racism and such crap.

Yeah man, I didn't mean to offend anyone, cuz I'm not racist at all. But now to be extra careful I always post African-American instead of Black. It was kind of ridiculous tbh, lol.

It's just a lot of wannabe kids who accuse others of being racist whenever they mention anything about black people.

And your one of my fav members so I don't think you were confused or thought I took that post as any bullsh*t like that.

Agreed. People who accuse others of being racist for using simplified dialogue to describe a person, place, or thing makes life a ounce more difficult. Using words should be used with most respect though.

I really like CJs talk style.Like: "Go sleep with yo' sister, fool!","My ride!My f*ckin' ride!","I'm well dressed but still aint bitch!"...I like being a G, not a mobster like Tommy.And it would be sexy that one of characters was voiced by Chris Tucker.

I wouldn't mind seeing an Far-Eastern character. We've already had American (Claude), Italian-American (Tommy, Toni), African-American (Carl), Afro-Caribbean (Vic) & Eastern-European (Niko).

 

Thought I suspect GTA CW will have an Chinese Triad protagonist. But I wouldn't mind seeing a Japanese Yakuza member. If not, English or Cuban please!

CJ was a cool character, and so far even with Niko being my favorite GTA character, CJ is still the only character who had a great amount of humorous relief.
