Carl Johnson Appreciation Thread


Fear Factor

I personally don't want the main character as a woman. I don't think it ever will be either. I wont go into details as I know I can't without sounding sexist. confused.gif

I concur. confused.gif

 

I would have to say Tommy or Toni were the best. CJ was alright, but he was just too whiny.

I agree. A female main character would just feel wrong.

 

As whiny or unpopular (compared to the other main characters) as Carl is, they had to make him a sympathetic character as he was the first black main character. Maybe they went a bit too far, but then again in SA Carl can literally slit throats.

Technically I guess it is open to all characters although this has turned into a protagonist discussion.

I gotta agree with you on Toreno. Woods is excellent.

I transcripted his humorous phone calls to Carl about leaning to fly. originally when I was going through the game I missed these as I went on to do the flight school straight away rather than leaving it for a while. Here it is:

 

CARL: Hey wassup?

MIKE: Hey, how’s the flying coming along?

CARL: Yeah, well sh*t man, I was gonna holla at you about that cause, you know, I’m-

MIKE: Will you listen to yourself? Admit it, you’re scared.

CARL: Maybe just a little.

MIKE: Until you’ve walked into the middle of a Bedouin arms dealer’s camp with nothing but a briefcase full of cash, you don’t know the meaning of fear, okay?

CARL: Oh yeah? Try going to the swap meet in Idlewood sometime.

MIKE: Learn to fly, Carl.

 

-

 

CARL: What do you want, Toreno?

MIKE: Well, what do you want, Carl? You want your brother out of jail?

CARL: Okay, listen, I’m trying man, I really am.

MIKE: I’m gonna let you in on a little secret, Carl. The one difference between those who tried and died, and those that still walk this Earth, is belief in self. Nothing is impossible, Carl. Beat your fears, focus your mind and learn to fly.

CARL: Okay, Okay, I’ll- TORENO? Oh sh*t…

 

-

 

CARL: Toreno?

MIKE: Carl, learn to fly.

CARL: I’m on it, man, I swear.

MIKE: ‘I’m on it, man, I swear.’ Same old broken record, Carl. But that’s fine… because your brother’s getting a new cellmate tonight, ‘Horse Co*k’ Harry, and I’m sending a present, little wedding present, big tub of lube!

CARL: sh*t dude, okay, okay, I swear man, I’m gonna be the best pilot!

MIKE: I’d love to hear you Carl, I can’t hear you. All I can hear is your brother’s love cries as eight kilometres of co*k finds it’s way up his ass. ‘Aooooowww’ That’s your brother, okay? No big problem.

CARL: Wait! Please, man.

MIKE: That was my last motivational speech, understand? Am I being too spiritual for you, Carl?

CARL: Okay, man, I get the message!

Oh, Ok.

 

This is getting a bit off-topic.

 

Let's stop.

 

Because I just got a warning from a Mod.

Claude is by far the coolest character in all gta's. He doesn't speak, which lends him a mysterious aura (plus, if he doesn't speak, he doesn't say stupid things, hehe). He just wants to get his revenge on Catalina and he is ready to accept the consequences. Tough guy.

 

Second is Tommy Vercetti. He's violent, psychotic and makes fun of everyone - except for the old man who owns the printing press, he really seems to care about him.

 

CJ is a pussy, he doesn't like all the violence and confusion (that's why he fled to Liberty City, after all) and he is kinda manipulated by everyone in the game. It's never clear to me why he does all those things - at least Claude and Tommy had clear goals in mind, but CJ just seems lost and confused. Even so, he is an interesting character, perhaps the least shallow of the protagonists.

 

But I love other supporting characters like Asuka (cool woman), Catalina (totally nuts), Toreno (funny guy), Ricardo Diaz (another cracknut) and Kent Paul - this one is my favourite, he is just so funny. Oh, and how to forget Jezz Torrent - stereotypical junkie rocker, but funny nonetheless. smile.gif

The problem with calling CJ a pussy is that once he's in your control, he does so much crazy stuff like crashing planes, shooting rockets, getting the army on his azz and everything between punching someone to jumping off Mt. Chiliad!!! mercie_blink.gif

My fav's Tommy, though. but it's just that he can't do as much (unless you put mods for everything in) and the story seems better in SA by having an intro DVD. find a copy to watch at google video.

the style of VC seems more realistic, unlike SA with him doing all that crazy stuff. colgate.gif

Ha. Yeah, I agree.

 

Storyline is much better in SA but much better gameplay in VC.

 

Though, it's not more realistic in VC, becuase in SA, you eat, you go gym, you SWIM!, and other stuff.

 

But it does get annoying.

Ironically I never have Tommy in his street clothes. I normally have him wear the Soiree, Mr.Vercetti or Casual outfits.
