I kept hoping Michael's family would get wiped out at the end of the campaign... at least you can almost mortally wound them with stickies

But then you get the text from that fat dipsh*t, "Near death experience now I will change my life LOL" Like he's f*cking mocking you.

I think they're brilliant and add to his overall character. When you have been Michael have you shot someone in the face with a shotgun ? Screwed a hooker and then popped her ? Threw a grenade into or ploughed a fire engine into a group of people ? What kind of family should he have ?

I like playing as a guy who has to deal with family sh*t and his wife - I love that experience and that is why Michael is one of the best GTA characters in the entire series.

 

Rockstar made a big risk by making the FIRST character you play as with a family and a wife - the risk payed off and most players loved it - they should do it again.

I don't understand where Amanda get's off on the "cheating BS", Michael hasn't cheated in any canon cutscene but Amanda has with two other dudes in the campaign, TWO... in a campaign within a time span of 1-3 months.

The family was one of my biggest problem in the game.

 

Like, I know Dan Houser explained it as Michael treated them badly so they treat him badly in kind.

But you never really get to see that except when he looses his **** in Daddy's Girl and Reuniting the Family.

 

So they just seem like they're asses for no reason. I had no desire to see prostitutes or strippers as Mike so it didn't make any sense why they were so mad at Mike

Call of Duty playing

 

 

Oh no, he plays call of duty. Truly a worse crime cannot be committed within the realm of gaming.

 

I played COD 4 and loved every minute of it. And I'm nothing like him.

Michael's family could have been a HUGE improvement to the game as a whole on a subconsious level...GTA V was least fulfilling in the characters IMO than anything else. If his family could have been likeable in any way, Michael's "devotion" to his family would have had more sincerity other than "Youre my family, i gotta love you" . I felt no love for Michael, his family, or their relationship. Making them less annoying and more bearable would give more impact to the story. Or they couldve done with a little more comedy about it. I always got an unconfortable feeling as they fought because it was so absurd yet resembled real life. Al Bundy had a rough relationship with his family, but it was still fun to watch.

" I had no desire to see prostitutes or strippers as Mike so it didn't make any sense why they were so mad at Mike " .

 

Liquidussnake If that is relevant at all then did you kill any civilians ? How many ? There you go, however that is totally irrevelant. It's a story and featuires the 3 best characters in GTA history imo. Everyone is entitled to their opinion however i think this forum shows some people will never be happy.

I'll admit, I've killed Jimmy for fun several times. I call him to hang out, then blow him up with a grenade or a sticky bomb.

 

It's just too bad you can't shoot him.

I've killed Jimmy once. It was after choosing ending C and next time you drive out of Michael's house Jimmy came speeding by on his bike. I crashed into him and he went flying. I don't know if that was random or it was programmed to happen on purpose, but you later get text from Jimmy saying that the hospital bill needs to come out Michaels money or a near death experience, or something along those lines.

I personally hate the family. Too ungrateful. Granted, Michael is a criminal. But, I feel like Amanda is the most ungrateful out of all of them. The thing that kills me is that she constantly complains about her life being ruined, but she didn't have much of a life to begin with. She was a stripper and a prostitute...talk about climbing the social ladder. Regardless, she's not living lavishly in RH yet still feels the need to bang the tennis coach and get back doored by the yoga instructor. I mean damn cut mike some slack. And then the kids are just lost causes...negative parenting over in that house.

 

 

Sidenote: I do feel like the family interactions were exaggerated a bit in order to hammer a point across, but i think rockstar coulda toned down the sh*ttiness of the family.

Michael and his family seem to be heavily inspired by The Sopranos. I love it in the sense that I really do hate his family but he would never kill his own family no matter how much they f*ck up. They're FAMILY! :)

Exept Meadow isn't a whore.

Mike's Family is only like that because of the awful life decision's he's made. Like Mike is an actual saint (he's the douchiest protag by far) whose sarcasm and "poor me" atttitude warrent it.

Jimmy pisses me off more than the other two.

 

All three default to the same method of running from their own problems: Blaming Michael.

Michael's family are easily the worst stereotypes in the game and just terrible people as a whole. But he deserves them. Like, okay, jimmy smokes pot and plays video games. How is that worse than watching movies while sprawled drunk on the couch or sitting poolside and listening to music?

 

Ooh, amanda is a shallow bitch that likes spending money on clothes? Yeah, says the guy who gets dollar sign rims on his car automatically in the story at some point.

 

Tracy is too obsessed with fame? Says the guy who wants desperately to make movies, so much so that he'll chase some guy's rich assistant onto an active airport runway just so he can save some movie with his name on it.

 

Yeah, his family are all the worst kind of people. But he deserves them.

 

Trevor's a cannibal and Franklin's a generic gangster and yet I found those two way more likable than Mr. "Oh I hate my family but I love them and that's why I save them but I also put them in danger and they totally suck but I am the most perfect snowflake of a human being on the planet.".

So... Jimmy thinks his mother is a real piece of work eh?

 

Jimmy added those dreadful rims while he was in possession of Micheal's car. At some very random point in the game.
