Is luiz lopez the worst GTA protagonist of all time?

Recommended Posts

wiizardii

I think so. Considering his actions in the story, he has pretty 0% character development, his MO (a bodyguard, wtf..?) is pretty lame, I mean a bodyguard to a nightclub? It couldn't get any worst. He also tries to act like a badass all the time. I don't know if R* did this on purpose with the character, or if it was a part of the script. His backstory is even worst, he got abused by his dad, and his dad left his family cliché.... I think he also got arrested or something when he was young... Even more stupid cliché with the character. Through out the story, he acted like a bum. Tony was kinda cool, but the whole Luiz trying to help Tony thing in the storyline fell so flat and it was so damn bad. Also, he has no goal whatsoever. His mom is in some way trying to help him get out of the criminal world? And his friends are cool (Armando and Henrique) But they could get annoying at times with the whole drama thing with Luiz not wanting to be with them. His mom is another hypocrite, wich gets even more ANNOYING. All and all, Luiz is IMO the worst GTA protagonist. I think he is worst than Franklin (Not that Franklin sucked balls or anything like Luiz).

Luis is better than Franklin and Niko.

 

About Armando and Henrique, Armando is a douchebag that always insults Luis for being the "Mr Downtown", but Henrique is alright, he's a little dumb, but he respect Luis and we can see this ingame. He seems to be annoyed by Armando.

Says guys who thinks Trevor is the best protagonist.

 

Luis wasn't the best protagonist out there, but he's also far from being the worst. He's a douchebag and womanizer, guy who lives to score with the ladies and earn some cash by wiping rich guys' (mostly Tony) asses by solving their problems. But at least he's consistent with his character (and he got more than 0 unlike some V characters), loyal to his friends and mother, despite arguing with her.

 

Luis may be not the best, but he's still miles ahead undeveloped and inconsistent pricks known as Trevor and Franklin.

For sure. Arrogant douchebag that had personality as interesting as rice. It's almost like he didn't know who to be. Trevor may be disgusting and vulgar but atleast he was who he was suppose to be.

You should not forget that it's not easy to create a massive character development within such a short storyline.

 

I don't think he's that bad, he lives across two different universes which have nothing in common, making his life more interesting IMO.

 

I also really think his "shallow" side (womanizer) existing alongside his others more mature personalities (his loyalty even when things goes wrong etc ...) is great. I don't like characters with a 100 % serious personality, it feels very bland.

 

However, I don't think he, and the story revolving around him, fit with Liberty City. I'd have rather put TBoGT in Las Venturas, it'd would have made much more sense.

Trevor is the worst protagonist of all time. Unless we count Mike.

He's somewhere not quite at Trevor, hovering in the CJ zone for the worst protagonist title.

He's a womanizer and a douche. He is a decent character but I didn't like him as much as i did Niko.

Definitely the worst.

Even Franklin is better than him.

The difference between Luis and Franklin is that Franklin dropped the ball as a vital part of the story, Luis didn't "wow" anyone but he did a good job at what he had to do. He was the third perspective that was needed to complete the story, and I appreciated it for what it was.

I don't like him as much as Niko and Johnny, but I don't think he's the worst. CJ and Trevor deserve to fight over that claim IMO.

 

Luis isn't that bad. I used to think he was a major dickhead, but over time I've come to appreciate his character more.

As my profile says...

"Niko > Claude > Johnny > Victor > Toni > Tommy > Luis > CJ > Franklin > Michael > Trevor"

So, no, i don't think Luis is the worst.

Luis is Alright

 

 

i used to hate him and at times he still annoys me like how he Treats Troy like a piece of sh*t for Instance but for the most part he was OK i really liked his Loyalty to tony and how he stuck up For Brucie in Particular.

 

 

 

 

And for me The worst Gta Protagonist of all time would have to be Tommy Vercetti.

I think he's underrated.

 

I liked how he stood up for Brucie when his brother was degrading him while doing pushups. He's also extremely loyal. He killed a whole army of russians to save Tony's life, although he knew it was pretty risky and he could have been killed.

 

Womanizer or not, he deserves some respect. Still better than CJ IMO.

No. Franklin and Micheal are the worst GTA protagonists of all time.

I think given a proper, full length game, Luis would have made a pretty good protagonist. He would still be the worst out of the IV era, though, Niko and Johnny were just incredible.

I thought his character was alright. Not my go-to kind of guy, but definitely better than all top-town GTA protagonists and Trevor. Didn't like him as much as the other two in the IV trilogy, but he completed the trinity and provided a much different outlook of LC which I appreciated the most

Niko and Johnny just sucked. Luis is the best HD era protagonist.

Altough i liked Niko and Johny far more but i wouldn`t say Luis is bad protag. Not at all, i kind of liked him. He has good physique, shredded with quality muscle mass and no water retention (he must be on ephedrin lol), he cares about his moms even if she screwed things up, he is loyal (even to that narcist prick Tony- no homophobic intentions here, i have nothing against gays but i don`t like narcistoidics pricks like prince Tony) and he is as badass. He fights in a cage. And i like his voices acting, very hispanic.

So to me he is ok. So far the only 2 protags i didn`t like were Claude and Trevor. Claude because he is a mute, heartless psycho and Trevor because he is sick in the head and anoying. Michael and Franklin are simply just boring.

But that`s just IMO.

Niko and Johnny sucked? Well you`re entitled to your own opinion but please don`t forget to add that little "IMO" at the end. Because it is just your own opinion.

And according to your avatar i somehow understand you for not liking Niko and Johny.

I just completed TBOGT and i must say it is hell of a good game and i like Luis, i don`t understand why so many of you hate him?

He is loyal, he is brave, he is badass, his voice acting is great for a Dominican guy and his physique is fighters`s one. Well he doesn`t beat Niko but he is far from being a bad protag. Why people hate him for exactly?

And i even get to like gay Toni within play even if he looks like some narcist cokehead at the start.

As for Johnny being bad or sucks i also strongly disagree. He is a biker, a typical badass hellraiser and what i like about him is that he isn`t being a racist like most of bikers are. He had Jimmy who was black for his best buddy.

Ask me all 3 protags from IV and EFLC are good in their own ways. As for side characters i prefer like Yusuf to all others. He rules, he just make you into good mood and his missions are the best. "arab money" lol

Oh and i hate Mori, i realy hated that orange-fake-tanned midged with blanged hair, eyeglasess and low quality muscle mass with high water retention. And he was such a dick to Brucie, i can`t believe it how B had this alpha male attitude in IV but he was like a scarry kitten in TBOGT with that prick Mori.

 

 

TBOGT is a very good game IMO, it`s a shame i haven`t bought it earlier but i didn`t know it is such a great game. Exciting missions, checkpoints, parachuting, cage fighting, the ability to replay missions, this game has plenty of new things to do it`s just a shame it has only 26 missions. For a game like that i wouldn`t mind if there was 200 of them. Oh and the f*cking explosive shotgun shells, that thing makes your killing sprees a grade A fun.

 

Really can someone please explain to me why you don`t like Luis?

Oh i forgot to mention there is one thing i don`t like about Luis and maybe this is 1 of the reasons why some of you don`t like him;

he seems to lack of action during the shootouts, he is more quiet and he doesn`t yell like a maniac as Johnny did "f*ck YOU f*ck YOU f*ck YOU..." or Niko "AAAARGHHHH I`LL RIP YOUR f*ckING HEARTS OUT"..That yelling makes a shooting missions more alive and Luis doesn`t do that. So this is the only thing i miss in TBOGT.
