The year is 2019 and a casino for gtao is released. In one of the missions for the casino you go to the vineyard for a settlement with agatha, Cheng etc.  Later in the mission you hear Cheng say when you arrive to his beach house that last time he almost died at that very same place in the deathwish ending. So I'm thinking franklin died with Trevor alive and there is no clue where Michael is online.

Michael's voice can be heard when you enter the casino.

 

"Living the dream baby!" or something.

I don't know why but that sounds so funny Franklin dying.

Same

Nor could I respect people who actually picked the other endings. The Trevor mission was just pure garbage and horribly written

 

I hope they come out and say Roman's alive soon, since it's pretty freaking obvious Revenge is canon. Niko would never take the deal

Guy seems much more slim than Michael and can't see his hair style so hard to tell.


As for the Endings of GTA V, I don't think any of them is that well written to be considered canon. Online's sh*t seems too random to be taken seriously, I was hoping the SP DLC would have the honor of confirming a canon ending, if there was to be one. Still Ending A definitely packs a better punch for me than other endings. Just love picking that one.

It does not matter which one is the canon, we'll probably never know about this, maybe we will, in the next iteration.

 

The side-missions that appear after completing the story are there because your character is able to do them. Unlike other endings in which your character ends up dead and you can't play as him, so the game automatically removes their side-missions.

 

As for the "other after-story missions" I have no idea.

As of 2019 seemingly ending C is canon. And I like it this way since Heins and Devin are more dangerous to people than mike or T. OK, All the main characters are criminals but a corrupt high ranking agent is way more powerful and dangerous than a bank robber and a murderer. Point is, none are good people but one is worse.

Debatable. From my perspective. Michaels and Steve can be controlled because they have a goal they want to accomplish and once its done, they stop.

Devin is private sector so that's a wild card. However it seems his main power comes from Merryweather support which loses its license to function in U.S soil in every ending so he's kinda left without much power in the end, only to get supported by the FIB who will pressurize him to stay put if you pick Ending A.

Then there's Trevor, who kills, steals and provoke huge organizations like the Hillbillies, the Triads and Merryweather just because he feels like it. And so far, only a middle-age woman can control him like his mother or Patricia so he's seems to be the most dangerous.

Furthermore, I always have issue killing Steve over Trevor. Steve actually shot himself in the leg for the sake of the crew and for his country. Trevor on the other hand, never really takes much risk for others e.g in Blitz heist, he did not wanted to be on the ground when the fight starts, when Michaels and Dave get jumped by everyone, Trevor leaves midway before he loses his escape routes and the worst part of him leaving Floyd behind to get beaten up by Merryweather guards and didn't save him because it would ruin his plan. He also abandons Michaels to the Triads because he didn't wanna forfeit his business.

Steve's worst part in comparison is him torturing Mr. K but this is a trait that can be in found in other agents like Karen wanting to shove a lightstick up Mr.K's rear, Devin practicing his punches on Mr. K and Trevor beating up Cheng Jr to get info on Hillbillies. In fact CJ and Johnny K have also used torture to get info so I'm not sure why characters like Karen gets to live but Steve has to die. IMO, everyone except Michaels and Franklin should be kill-able and let us as players decide the fate of every character in an open ended mission.

I've only ever picked C, haven't seen what happens after the A and B endings.

 

What happens after? Are there missions like 'Mrs Phillips'?

 

I'd assumed C was the canon ending, as it kept all characters and there was some follow up for Trevor. So the ending where he's offed can't be canon.

 

Please advise.

Mrs. Phillips doesnt unlock for a while if you Kill Trevor, where with the other endings, it unlocks right away

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 funny cuz the supposedly sh*t one is canon.

It was an old question anyway but Mrs Philips doesn't unlock at all if you kill Trevor, it's Trevor's mission so if he's dead it can't happen. It also isn't a replayable mission so it never shows up on the mission replay list either. Only way to play it is if you pick an option where Trevor stays alive and play it that one time after the final mission/credits.

Nah. It's GTA - endings where you kill off 3 factions in one go are totally believable within the scope of what GTA is. Not to mention the characters spent all game getting to know them and their weaknesses, so it's not exactly a spur of the moment thing.

 

Not to mention choosing either B or A results in a more boring and incomplete game in the end.

I couldn't even look at option B, it actually made me sick LMAO. Like why would Franklin kill Michael who was his mentor? It would be so OOC for Franklin to kill Michael, I think it'd make more sense for him to kill Trevor but even then it was a reach. Option C is the most boring but the best option.

 

I finally was able to look at option B it's so sad because the Franklin/Michael friendship is everything in the game. Don't get me wrong I hate Trevor and never play him but killing him is dumb.
