Did you have any preconceived notions of a character before release?

I thought Chop was going to die to heighten an emotional bond between him and Franklin, but in game he's nowhere near as utilised like I thought he would be. I pictured a "man's best friend" kind of scenario where Franklin would grow really attached to him through the story. However besides a couple missions and in free roam playing fetch or whatever he just feels like an accessory.

 

Really think they could've so much more considering GTA V was the first GTA to feature animals.

I thought Michael De Santa would be like Neil McCauley from HEAT.

Not all of these are pre-release, but these are just misconceptions I had over characters in general before learning the whole story.

 

8-Ball was CJ's alter-ego (that's what happens when you play the games out of sequence as an impressionable 11 year old!)

Salvatore Leone and T-Bone Mendez would be two of the main male villains in San Andreas, and that the latter would have a much deeper, intimidating voice. Blame the loading screen artists.

CJ would find a reason to beat Cesar within an inch of his life, either due to a misunderstanding or genuine malintent since his gang would provoke and attack you throughout the game.

Sweet and/or Kendl would be killed between CJ's arrest/exile and his return to Los Santos, giving him a real reason to quit the lifestyle and rain holy hell upon his enemies.

Jerry Martinez would be a lot more subtle in his betrayal of Vic than giving him a dishonorable discharge and sending him to his death practically straight away.

Gay Tony would actually be the titular protagonist instead of a guy that you (Luis) worked for.

Franklin would be a CJ 2 that had Grove Street running through his veins.

Michael would be GTA's attempt at a prime Robert de Niro movie character, that we'd eventually see break from a subdued, reserved person into an unhinged one-man army (like Travis Bickle) or return to a life of crime.

Trevor would be a cold, cunning psychopath rather than a drugged-out shell of a human being that said hilarious things to appeal to the future Rick and Morty audience.

Madrazo would be the main bad guy in V, and Natalia Zverovna would be a HD Catalina dialed up to 11 rather than a one-shot character.

Lazlow would actually die during the Fame or Shame mission.

I think Michael really tried to imitate his style but when it comes to personality they were almost nothing alike.

That Michael De Santa watched to many movies.

Yeah, except a few similarities like his haircut and nose, Michael is nothing like Neil.

I find him to be like Neil in appearance. He can't hold his temper and emotions AT ALL and this makes him like a totally different character. Also he whines all the time. De Niro is more badass as well. It's good that they are not the same though. R* already copied Heat enough in V.

For me the other crucial difference between Neil and Michael is that Michael is the family man while Neil lived by the saying " Don't let yourself get attached to anything you are not willing to walk out on in 30 seconds flat if you feel the heat around the corner."

I also can't see Neil going to a shrink...That would be something De Niro's character in Analyze this and Analyze that would do :D

Yeah They are nothing alike now that I think more about it.

Failure

When I heard that Trevor is going to be a psychopath, I expected a sophisticated one like Dr, Hannibal Lecter or Patrick Bateman with an interesting backstory, but all we got was a poorly written nutcase with mommy issues.  

 

I also expected Michael to have a mistress.

I expected Niko to have better sense of humour.
