GTA IV's Trio vs GTA V's Trio

Recommended Posts

Journey_95

In GTA IV we had Niko, Johny and Luis they didn't really know each other and they all had their own stories but their paths crossed some times during the storyline (like in Museum Piece)

 

In GTA V we basically had three friends and because of that they really had one only one big story with some side stuff going on

 

So what concept do you like more ? The Protags being friends(GTA V) or not really knowing each other (GTA IV) or real enemies (maybe in GTA VI?)

For me it was:

 

1. Niko Bellic

2. Michael De Santa

3. Trevor Phillips

4. Johny Klebitz

5. Franklin Clinton

6. Luis Lopez

 

In the end I like all of them but some more than others !

IMO its Mike trevor and franklin. Although I like Niko more than any of them and I liked Johnny too, I can't stand that bitchboy Luis. Although it was still a cool concept of the three amigos in the IV time that they did not know each other

Franklin is probably my favorite of the 6, even though his altitude is kind of like Luis' I still like him a lot, just wish the game included more gang related stuff for franklin...

Won't go into too great of detail, but here's my opinion... (spoilers)

1. Michael
2. Trevor
3. Johnny
4. Niko
5. Franklin
6. Luis

Michael and Trevor had more personality than the other four combined, to be honest. No real complaints about their personalities. Maybe Michael's cheesy quotes during free roam, but that's about it. Johnny was a stereotypical biker, albeit a likeable one. No real complaints about him, besides his rather unfortunate appearance in GTA V.

Niko's personality in free roam differed quite a bit from his personality during missions. His personality was fine outside of missions (some of his quotes are pretty badass, actually). Inside of missions, he was a hypocrite, always whining in his nasally voice about how bad his life was, while all the while he was killing dozens of both innocent and bad people who usually had nothing to do with him (Michael is a hypocrite too, but not nearly as bad as Niko is. He mopes on his living room couch most of the time, only bothering people about his problems when they push him too far, whereas Niko brings people both related and unrelated to him into his problems, and they suffer as a result. Roman and Kate are good examples.). He probably killed about a hundred thugs, cops and innocents by the time his story was over, all over some guy who betrayed him in eastern Europe that moved to Liberty City.

Franklin didn't have much of a personality, really. I would have liked to see more things about his personal life, besides Tonya's whining during tow truck missions... Finally there is Luis, who was probably one of the worst protagonists in the series. Yeah, you could fly Buzzards, parachute off buildings, and wreak havoc with new weapons in TBoGT, I know, that expansion was amazing. But the character itself was tasteless. After watching the movie Scarface, I ended up disliking the character even more, as I realized that Rockstar seemed to have based his personality off of Tony Montana, which was a pretty sad discovery.

Anyway, I did kinda like how the three GTA IV protagonists were relatively neutral towards each other at first, until Luis ambushed Niko and Johnny at the diamonds exchange. Then Niko and Johnny's relationship was severed, and Niko ended up killing Lost MC members and kidnapping Gracy, while Johnny ended up kidnapping Roman. The three GTA V protagonists being on good terms was pretty nice, too. Not sure how three protagonists being rivals with each other would work out, could be interesting though.

There wasn't a trio in GTA IV. Niko, Johnny and Luis were single protagonists on their own story and game.

 

I prefer single protagonist over multiple. But it's nice of Rockstar to do multiple protagonists once for a change. I don't want it in the next GTA though.

SPOILER ALERT.

Niko was trying to hunt down the guy who was responsible for the deaths of some human beings for money, but Niko was doing the same thing in Liberty City. Niko killed lots of people all for money even if some of them weren't that bad as people. Trevor, Michael, and Franklin just seemed like greedy folks robbing banks and causing chaos out of pure selfishness. They could have stopped as soon as they got more than enough money, but no, they wanted to go after the federal reserve. They know they'd have to kill all these cops who are just trying to keep the city safe, yet they'd still go for it out of lust for money. Luis and Johnny seemed like they wouldn't take others' lives just for money; they would only go after specific people who messed with them. That's why I'd rather hang with Luis and Johnny since I know they wouldn't someday turn against me and kill me just for someone's offer of money. Niko, Trevor, Michael, and Franklin are different. They'd kill innocent people if that means they'd get lots of money for it. That's something I hate about the Grand Theft Auto series. Yes, we're playing a game based on crime, but it's as if Rockstar wants us to believe a criminal taking the lives of not-so-bad people just for money is better than a criminal who wronged him in some way.

I liked IV's trio more.

 

1. Niko - My favorite video game protagonist ever. He's a total badass, a trained killer who's trying to feel human again by walking out on his life of crime at the end of the game.

 

2. Michael - Intelligent and resourceful. I liked seeing the family aspect of his life because it's not something you get often in games.

 

3. Johnny - A level-headed, rational guy who just wants what's best for his brothers. What's not to like?

 

4. Luis - Fearless and a no-nonsense guy who does what needs to be done in order to survive.

 

5. Franklin - A lot of missed opportunities with this guy, he just felt like a younger Michael who's hungry for more. It's a shame his story became irrelevant after the jewel store heist.

 

6. Trevor - A hot-headed freak who I hate for killing Johnny. The whole "look guys he's waking up in a field wearing a dress! Isn't that funny!?" thing, basically the randomness of his character, didn't do it for me.

I like them not knowing each other. Makes for a MUCH more dynamic story. My opinion.

 

EDIT:

  1. Niko (perfect backstory for a GTA protagonist and an amazing story to boot)
  2. Johnny (great sense of morality as well as business sense and very loyal)
  3. Luis (somewhat loyal and did some crazy sh*t, but it wasn't too far out there)
  4. Franklin (CJ + Luis, more of the traditional GTA character)
  5. Michael (i like the premise, but they executed him as a disloyal dumbass)
  6. Trevor (Saints Row style character, crazy to be crazy with no real substance)

I agree its not the thread for that

Thats true because in GTA IV every Protagonist had its own story with own set of friends, missions and antagonists

Sometimes their paths crossed and they worked with or against each other but in the end they didn't really know each other

 

Still I think it was a good idea to make them friends this time for one its cool doing missions with all three of them (by switching)

and also otherwise it would have been too similiar to IV

Franklin and Michael are interchangeable, only because I wish we knew more about Franklin. If I knew more about Franklin, he would probably be number one with Niko.

I like when they don't know each other well, it makes it way more interesting when they meet. Seeing Niko, Johnny and Luis at the Libertonian was pure awesomeness, same when Niko and Johnny shake hands. In a point of view it seems that Niko and Johnny are friends "against" Luis,

although Johnny kidnapped Roman and Niko killed Jason and Jim.

 

M, F and T being three best friends forever is cool and all but not that exciting after a while in my opinion if we talk about cutscenes, not gameplay because I find it great switching between them in missions.

 

Anyway...

1. Niko

2. Michael

3. Johnny

4. Luis

5. Trevor

6. Franklin

Why don't you explain why you don't like Johnny instead of just calling him "terrible"? I'd also be curious to see how you rank these characters.

Michael(intelligent and knew what he had to sacrifice to try and leave being a criminal)

Niko(best outfits in the hd universe and a total badass)

Trevor(finally a character that other characters see as insane as the player playing them would act out)

Johnny(had a good biker story but cared to much about the people getting in his way)

Franklin(not really a good background and doesn't have that much of a story, what happened to that forum drive set he wanted to do with lamar?)

Luis(do I need to explain)
