IV Trio is mine

I'd like to say IV ones over V but due to nostalgia and personal reasons, I'm going with the 3D ones.

By the way, VCS/LCS/A aren't the only spinoffs, in fact, all the other GTAs from the 3D era apart from III are spinoff.

I go with IV, too. Because the characters were different from the "stereotype GTA dude".

 

The III/VC/SA ones felt like too much of a cliche.

 

While the V ones are too predictable in it's actions.

IV had two really good protagonists and one lousy (Luis). All the others had two lousy and only one good. (Victor, Tommy, Michael).

That's subjective.

Ofcourse it is. The topic is which, trio is my favourite, and frankly allot of the protagonist are bad, and their games saved by the secondary characters or antagonists.

Whoever voted for the 3D era might have done so out of nostalgia. Claude was really a blank slate. Perhaps a badass, but not really a character. Tommy looked cool and had a few cool badass lines but was pretty much designed to be a stereotypical badass. CJ had a few cool moments and funny quotes, but overall, he was mostly an avatar for the player (aka sorta a blank slate) and he was really made into a stereotypical black guy.

 

IV's protagonists may not have had agreeable personalities, but they are more complex characters and their storylines interconnect. V's protagonists of course have Franklin as the weakest link and Trevor as the strongest link, though Michael could be seen as a portrayal of the hopes and aspirations of the average middle class american.

I didn't vote because I couldn't decide. I was tempted to choose the IV trio, but Luis is a real weak link there.

Now why we can't have multiple choices?

 

I like all the protagonists all equally.

Each era have one thing in common - they all have a dud.

 

3D Era - CJ

IV - Luis

V - Trevor

Spin offs - Mike

 

So based on how bad the dud is along with how much I like the other 2 characters, here's how it ranks for me.

 

4. Spin offs

3. IV

2. 3D Era

1. V

The perfect trio to me would be the best of each set. That being Tommy, Niko and Michael.

 

In saying that the possible trinity gets my vote.

Weird, I kinda hated the GTA IV trio :p

My favorite is the GTA III era one, though I haven't played V.

And NO, it's not out of nostalgia, it's simply better than the GTA IV one cause it's more fun to be a badass mute, a cool 80s guy and a gangsta from Compton than a depressive immigrant, a reggaeton guy and a biker with no personality.

IV trio for me, which I guess, isn't surprising for anybody.

 

Sure, Luis was a bit shallow, being generally douchebag and womanizer, but brilliantly written Niko and Johnny really make this trio my favourite.

 

In 3D era, Tommy was great, but tabula rasa Claude and whiny bitch CJ weren't my favourites. Similar thing can be said about guys from Spin-offs, where Vic was really great, Tony was quite mediocre in comparison to other guys and Mike was well, just Mike. In V only character worth mentioning is Michael, but even he finally became tiring with his constant melancholy and moaning.

 

Also where is Huang?

I liked the majority of them but i gotta go with the 3D era. I only really liked Niko from the IV era and Trevor from V. The others were lame characters imo.

There's no clear winner for me, though at a push it would just about go to III era. I don't like Tommy. I don't particularly like CJ, but Claude is the man.

 

I like Niko, I don't like Johnny and I'm indifferent to Luis.

 

I like Franklin, but I can't stand either Michael or Trevor.

 

So III era just about edges it.

Signatures are dumb anyway.

I agree with this. Those three together would be badass.

Just, Michael would betray a person like Niko/Tommy after just seeing him :pp

IV Trio.

 

All of them have more depth in personality and attitude rather than the 3D era character and I only like one protagonist in V.

Don't forget Victor, he kicks everyone's ass.

 

 

OT: IV's trio
