Next Protagonist Ethnicity?

Recommended Posts

DanManUtd
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!

A Japanese in the Yakuza would be interesting, I wouldn't mind seeing a Chinese in the Triad either, or maybe in Wuzi's gang :S

TBH I don't care.

 

I like both the idea of an Japanese/Chinese protagonist but also a South African one.

As long as it's human it's OK, tough I would like a clone or a robot in a futuristic themed GTA icon14.gif

I wonder if the realism will continue in the next GTA as that'll affect the protagonist. If it's not realistic like San Andreas, the main character will probably be a parody like Tommy was of Italian wiseguys, but here's hoping it is realistic. Because I'd hate for them to finally do a hispanic character and have him be a steriotypical, accent-having, dark-skinned, thick-mustache wearing latino. That would really blow...

It's wouldn't necessarily be unrealistic fo a hispanic character to be dark skinned and have an accent though. 'realism' or not GTAIV was full of stereotypes, it's only natural to assume that the next one will be too. Admittedly Cheech may be a bit over the top, but having an accent and dark skin wouldn't be a problem in my opinion, since many hispanics do

A vicious Scott actually sounds pretty awesome. Someone far more ruthless than Niko and as ambitious as Tommy, a real anti-hero.

Niko wasn't ruthless. He was more of a guy who kills people but compalins about situations to much. Something like Vic Vance but not as annoying.

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.

Chinatown Wars will have an Asian, Vice City Stories had a latino. Vic Vance wasn't black, he was Dominican.

And Dominican is not Latin, he was Afro-Caribbean as far as I'm concerned.

If he was dominican, he would be Latin American still, the name itself "Latin America" comes from the fact that we speak languages which derive from latin, a dominican IS a latin american, it has nothing to do with ethnicity.

Pfffffft.

I want to see a Scottish main character. Or at least an important sub-character.

I have no background story for it at all. But considering Rockstar started off in Edinburgh...there should be characters from Scotland.

 

Och Aye The Noo!!

Dominicans and Cubans are technicly Latin but they are also Afro- Carribean. Some of you guys do relaize that a big majority of some of those South American places are full of "black" latins. They're not African American but they are still bllack and that mainly ranges from Afro Carribean culture since alot of slaves were sent to places in South America.

 

Hati for example is is on the same island of the Dominican Republic and a very large majority of them have African ancestory and that's why most of them are black. But they aren't Africans or other side groups people label balck people as but instead they are what their country is.

 

Look at baseball players for example. Alot of them are latin but are black. So for a Spanish person from the Dominican Republic would actually be latin but he's still black.

 

This link below gives explanation of African Ancestory and " Black People"

No I'm not, I'm just wandering around the forums and I'm not sure what they speak, but yeah they speak Spanish then again Vic was not Latin, because he didn't even know Spanish, since if he actually did then he would talk to Diego Mendez in Spanish on that cutscene where he was ignored.

I think a Triad is going to be the protagonist for Chinatown Wars, that is Asian and I like that!

 

And as I've said before - I want an Afro-American character again, Hispanic would be good too.

I actually wouldn't mind another African American character again.

 

An ex-cop or something, would be cool. Hey what about a native Samoan? That would be really unique, and original.

Corrupt cop would be pretty funny, but it'd be cool if they returned to the hood-life theme and this time did it properly without throwing in a bunch of random stuff such as jetpacks and working for government.

 

Btw: the 'n' in my name is spellt with lowercase.

I'm assuming you were talking to me about my respect list? If so, now fixed. smile.gif

 

Anyway as much as I disliked the "hood" theme in SA, I wouldn't mind if it was done properly. I've seen "Boyz N the hood", and I thought it captured this particular lifestyle pretty well.

 

So if we do have an African American gangsta again I hope the hood life is explored upon more deeply, with less random things interrupting.

We have had these ethicities so far.....

 

Claude:White,Anglo-Saxon

Tommy:White,Italian-American

CJ:Black,African-American

Toni:White,Italian Immigrant(not confirmed,but heavily hinted)

Vic:Black,Dominican Immigrant

Niko:White,Serbian Immigrant

 

So far,all we've had were whites and blacks.If we do an Asian,please no Triads,the Yakuza are much more suitable.For a hispanic,a gangbanger would be okay,but a Colombian Cartel member would be even better,of course if we have another white guy,make him Irish.

Gabriel,I changed Russian to Serbian and the reason why I hate the LC Triads is because they are mentally retarded.Look at the way they dress and the way they speak with stuff like "I see pain in your future!","Now it fits in your pocket!"(GTA3),and even the offensive and stereotypical "Me no speaky Chinese"(LCS)

 

The San Fierro Triads were alright,but Woozie was an annoying prick.I mainly liked the SF Triads for their weapons and styles.True gangsters.

 

I haven't played GTA4 yet,so I thought he was Russian.

Tbh I liked the Triads clothes in GTA3. They looked funny and the Triad voice actor in III was really funny as well, their voice cracked me up, lol. And I like the LC Triads more than SF one's because they both dress cooler and are quieter, as stylish as black suits are I liked the LC one's a lot more.
