Tommy Vercetti's discussion

Recommended Posts

watersgta3

I actually thought Tommy was more relatable than CJ. I mean don't get me wrong. I like CJ too, and this is coming from a guy who likes San Andreas more than Vice City, but to me, I relate more to a guy who has that "I'm surrounded by idiots" attitude, because from how stupid, idiotic, and senseless a lot of people of society is, I can definitely understand why Tommy is never happy. I mean would you feel happy if you got set up by your boss, had to spend over a full decade in the rusty cage, and get out just to have the guy who set you up put you in exile in a city where a bunch of idiots get on your nerves? While I like Niko much better out of all the protagonists so far, I think Tommy's misanthropic and cynical demeanor is the most relatable of them all.

Tommy is a selfish, psychopathic jerk -- Completely unlikable.

 

Which is just what makes him so perfect.

A step up from Claude in GTA III. Ray Liotta really gave the character some personality. Nostalgic even. Looking back at some of his older movies. I always think Tommy Vercetti when I see Ray Liotta.

That sounds more like a description of Trevor than Tommy honestly.

Tommy was definitely one of the most likeable characters. And no, Tony Montana was a lot different than Tommy.

Tied with Claude as the best 3D era protagonist imho.

What about, Toni Montana is ripped off Tommy?

I've always got a kick out of him having a poster of Claude Speed in the Ocean View Hotel. Pretty big callback...or should I say foreshadow seeing as this game takes place 15 years prior. In any case, I didn't get a sense of Toni Montana at all from Tommy. I mean, sure it takes place near the time of Scarface, but I didn't get that sense at all.

I don't think Tommy thinks he's surrounded by idiots as much as he's naive. Like after the game when he tells Avery in the phone call I THOUGHT HE WOULDN'T BETRAY ME LIKE THAT, Avery was all like YOU STILL HAVE A LOT TO LEARN or something like that.

Good point. He reminded me a lot of Henry Hill from Goodfellas. Yes, I know he was voiced by the same dude. But yeah, he still has a lot to learn like Tommy does.

The only thing they share in common is their similar rises to power and the setting. The characters themselves couldn't be more different.

 

Toni became broken and a mess. Not to mention he was an addict. Tommy never touched the sh*t and was/is more cunning and smarter to his rise to the top,

 

Apples to oranges IMO.

I think the only similarity worth caring about are the outfits and the mansion.
