Is Claude the most overrated protagonist in GTA history?

Recommended Posts

watersgta3

Honestly, as much as I love GTA, I think about 85% of the characters of the series are overrated. As far as underrated GTA characters go, Armando and Diego Mendez, Phil Cassidy, Madd Dogg, Ryder, Kendl, Vincenzo, Asuka, Joey Leon, and 8-Ball fit that description perfectly. Anyone else gonna name any more underrated GTA characters?

Madd Dogg, Ryder, and Kendl are definitely the most underrated characters of GTA SA.

Kendl? CJ's sister? How was she underrated? She barely played any part, it's easy to miss her.

I think Niko's the most overrated protagonist in GTA history. Not trying to hate, just saying.

My I ask, why?

 

 

Just look around at polls, and similar statistics. People just love & adore Niko a lot more than other characters.

 

Cause he was the first to have a decent Storyline and kind of a strong past

As much as I enjoy the protagonist and the game CJ&SA are overrated, I finally realised from a few topics and a Hardcore Niko/GTA IV fan ;)

But yeah, I do think the main reason as to why people liked CJ was because you could customize him like a barbie doll.

 

Not logical at all. You can do this with Trevor, too; Is Trevor popular because of V's character customization?

 

 

You can't make Trevor obese or muscular, even though I'd like to see an obese Trevor. The character customization was a lot more in depth in SA as opposed to V.

 

 

Your opinion is yours, no offense, but imo it's completely unlogical. With your logic, we could say:

Claude Speed (GTA2) was liked because of Scott Maslen.

Claude (III) was liked because he killed his ex.

Tommy was liked because of Ray Liotta's voice.

Niko was liked because he could play bowling.

Michael was liked because he could sleep with his wife.

Trevor was liked because he could have tattoos.

Franklin was liked because he had a dog.

 

Where's the logical reasoning? Nobody knows.

I think the most overrated is CJ, no question.

 

Most underrated would be Franklin for me, whenever people talk about GTA 5, mostly Micheal (who feels like THE main protagonist of GTA V) and Trevor, ESPECIALLY Trevor.

 

Claude however, to me he seems like R*'s favorite protagonist, which could be the reason some believe he's overrated, he's the only GTA character to be a full figure (not counting those weird lego-looking figures), he's in GTA V (along with Niko and J. Marston) and he's in GTA San andreas.

 

Surprised you don't see him in LCS, as he would be in LC as of the events of GTA LCS.

IMO, C.J. is the most over-rated protagonist in GTA History. The best protagonist is Niko Bellic.

Vercetti's the most overrated IMO.

I went back to Vice City a week or two ago, he's such an annoying douche.

So apparently, your connotation of the word "overrated" means deserving more hate than love. Shees, does anyone know what the true definition of "overrated" means anymore?

Wrong.

What's funny here is how you tried to look smart and got exactly the opposite result.

 

He's an annoying douche, that's his whole personality. As someone said, one-dimensional, the kind of character that would only leave an impression on teenagers.

In some ways he is. But for me, he's my personal favorite character mainly because I think he looks cool. But I also like the fact that he never speaks. I like that he's mysterious and that it's up to your imagination to figure out who he is. Or at least I do that. I guess I'm a fanboy because it has become a tradition for me to mod him into every GTA game I have on the PC (which is all except for VCS and LCS, of course). I'm just hoping someone makes an HD Claude for GTA V. :)

In answer to the question in the title: clearly you didn't hear of Carl Johnson and the entire SA game. That's hands down the most overrated character and GTA ever.

Apparently nobody does. Everyone says it's CJ, but everyone hates CJ except the people in the San Andreas forums.

 

Logic fail.

OK two things: first of all, if you're gonna reply to me in a brusque demeanor, learn how to f*cking spell. And second, there's absolutely no reason to get all querulous. Were you really talking about how badass the character was when GTA III first came out? And even though Tommy and CJ have their overrated moments, at least they have actual human attributes.

I don't get sometimes why people call him the "best" protagonist out of all the other ones in the entire series..

 

He never talks, which is alright. Kinda makes everything secretive. Would have added character to him, then maybe I would have liked him more. The only think I honestly like about him is the outfit. It looked pretty cool.

I think Claude is my favourite. If we're talking about who is overrated, it's Trevor Phillips, Michael Townley and Tommy Vercetti. In that order.

 

I enjoyed the games they're in, but I didn't enjoy playing as those characters specifically. I found Trevor to be a mish mash of comic relief and omgwhackyviolence, I found Michael to be an irritating prick, especially after he made contact with Solomon, and Tommy Vercetti's ham-fisted impression of Tony Montana was pathetic.

 

That's no comment on the games they were in, just the characters.

 

But Claude. Oh Claude. Hard as nails, always willing to nod and get to work. Never a word, always a result. I think it's one of the Donald Love missions where he basically walks in, listens to Love explain what he needs and just walks out again. It's like he's saying 'whatever, let me just blow sh*t up'. He doesn't need to have tiresome 'daddy never loved me, mummy is a lunatic' back story. He doesn't need to be portrayed as this super crazy guy. He's like the ultimate merc. More so even than Niko, as he doesn't struggle with what he is.

What Tony Montana impression are you talking about? I have not heard Tommy say "Cocksuckers" or "f*cking maricons" one time, nor did I see him sniffing coke in any cutscene of VC. So I don't know what the f*ck you're talking about his "impression of Tony Montana."

Poor choice of words maybe. Tommy and his story bear many resemblances to the Scarface story. There's a lot of references to Scarface (amongst other things) throughout. Look at the mansion.

 

But his general demeanour of borderline psycho comes across very much as Montana-inspired to me.

I've seen the movie. I'm cognizant of the influences VC picked from Scarface. But personality wise, Tommy is much more different from Tony. The only similarities the two have are hot tempers. That's it. Tony was uneducated, impulsive, and high on cocaine most of the time, while Tommy, on the other hand, was far more intelligent, cognizant, fastidious, and never intentionally used any drugs. And by the way, inspiration is by no means tantamount to a ripoff, imitation, facsimile, copy, nor paste.

OK, I'm not trying to convince you of my point, I'm expressing an opinion.

 

By the way, congrats on learning a new word recently. I am cognizant of your quite annoying over use of the word.
