great reply, please make a list of decent and well adjusted men in gta.

Ah, but that's not what I said, now is it? You're changing things up, and, as we all know, decency doesn't exist in the GTA series.

 

I said, "Men run the show in the series and are the only ones treated with some degree of sophistication and respect." Some degree of sophistication and respect.

 

What do I mean by sophistication and respect? Well, men in the GTA series are the ones planning heists, at the helm of government agencies, the rich guys you work for in the games, the protagonists themselves, etc. On the other hand, women are largely just sex objects dancing on stripper poles or standing on street corners.

 

Being treated with sophistication and respect ≠ being decent and well-adjusted.

 

Paige is unique in that she was treated with a very high degree of sophistication (in her capabilities I mean; she's not just some semen bucket on the side of the road) and respect (her proficiency in hacking and guidance (e.g. guiding Michael through the rooftop heist) demanded the highest cut of all crew members). She's very unique in that regard. Very... (In regards to the GTA series.)

I was speaking from a general perspective. A few somewhat distinguishable, datable women don't compare to the constant that is unsophisticated women in the series.

 

Save for Asuka and Catalina--two characters created when Rockstar actually cared about quality and substance--Paige is much more sophisticated than those women. Her capabilities and usefulness far surpasses all of the women you mentioned, though, IMO.

 

All from a general perspective.

Mr. Tibbs

It's no secret that, generally speaking, women in the GTA series are treated in a rather...vulgar manner. Women in the GTA series are known mostly for being strippers and hookers we smash and dash underneath our tires. To be blunt: Men run the show in the series and are the only ones treated with some degree of sophistication and respect. That's why, while selecting my crew for the Jewel Store Heist for the first time, I was so shocked at who the most skilled hacker was -- Paige Harris, a tomboyish female who, oddly enough, came off as being just as vital to the group and professional as her male accomplices. Now that was refreshing and was the main reason why I used her on every heist requiring a hacker, despite Rickie (if used from the start) being equally efficient and cheaper in the long run (plus Rickie's overly l33t, faux personality was annoying).

 

What was even more surprising was when she was shown, in GTA Online, to be more than just a criminal hacker; she was useful at gathering intel, materials and outfits for the heists. As the late Jay Norris said before his head exploded, "That's not just impressive. It's revolutionary!" Seriously, Paige is the first female in gaming I've seen with as much professionalism and importance as the prominent men in the game, something more than evidenced by her 15% cut...

 

I would hate to see such a unique female, to the series and to gaming in general (seriously, how many females in gaming are there who are expert hackers, intel gatherers and as vital as Paige in general?), cast aside and forgotten. This is why I personally would like to see more of this character in GTA V; Paige is a rare character and learning more about her actual personality and life beyond heists (even if just through a few side missions) would be a breath of fresh air in every regard, in my opinion -- a nice change of pace from the classless strippers and hookers we're used to.

Oh great, more f*cking political bullsh*t in my f*cking game discussions.

Besides, Rickey costs less and is a great hacker. Hell, even with his low stats when you first choose him, you can still get all the jewels in the Jewel Store Heist no problem.

So get out with your feminist bullsh*t. I bought the game to have fun. I browse these forums to discuss the GTA franchise. I do NOT come here to participate in pointless political bickering that goes nowhere.

I agree, she needs to be shown more. She's cool and very hot.

She looks like a dude in this picture, lol.

 

also, if you're praising a woman in a video game, then please seek help. paige was just another generic character that was destined to be "edgy". just look at how she talks to lester and sh*t.

how?

Asuka is a yakuza boss and Catalina is Trevor with tits, she's useless next to them.

I'm not 100% sure, but I think I mentioned that Rickie costed less and was equally as efficient in the long run.

 

And you obviously don't know what feminism is at all. This thread is in no way an expression of feminism. It seems like the mention of the most obvious and basic general treatment of women in the GTA series rustles your jimmies.

It's a subjective point (hence me saying "IMO"). I just personally consider Paige's capabilities and usefulness (e.g. hacking and intel, materials and outfits gathering for heists) to be better than Asuka and Catalina's, as well as more unique for a female in the GTA universe. Just my biased opinion. :)

Eh, I ignore everything in GTAO and it's weird "canon" that takes place before V's story. As far as I'm concerned, she's just one of the "generic goons" as Trevor says, in GTA V's heists.

 

I'm not a fan of GTA Online (I only found out that Paige was also in Online through the GTA Wiki and YouTube), but isn't Paige the only one of those "generic goons" who makes an appearance in Online, indicating a higher level of quality and professionalism possibly (once again, she helps with gathering intel, materials and outfits for the heists)? It's almost like she's a mobile, female Lester without the pedophilia and perversion.

 

Pretty sure Eddie Toh appears in GTAO as well.

 

Him and Paige having connections with Lester is what makes me think the two of them, along with the "high-end gunman" (can't remember his name) are the "canon" choices for heists. Regardless, I prefer to use the "special" characters like Packie, Taliana, and Rickie.

Yes, it seems all of the most expensive crew members are in Online. I too assume that they are the canon choices.

 

Cut costs aside, what did you like about Rickie in the heists? Does his comments in later heists add a nice flavor to the atmosphere of the missions or something, like Packie's? Can you tell that he's improving through the heists? Does he come off as being a bit more competent later on (if you use him from the start)? I'm just curious, because I stopped using him on my first playthrough and onward after I heard his dialogue in the Jewel Store Job through a mission replay.

Honestly, just because of his low cost. Yeah he sucks in the first heist, but gives you just enough time to get all the jewelry. After that, he only gets better at his job and stays at the same low rate.

 

But because of the approaches I always use (I always go for the heist option that it seems like they're originally planning for, before "Plan B" becomes an option) the next and last time I use him is for The Big One, and all he has to do is set up the traffic light thing, which is ridiculously easy.

Yeah, that seems like the only pro to using him, and since I never planned on using most of the money earned from the heists anyway, I went with Paige every time around, regardless of her cut. She added a nice professional touch to the crew and just came off as a top-tier hacker on par with Lester and Zero, something reinforced by all of Michael's compliments in regards to her skill.

Well what other pros are there?

 

It's not like you can hang out with them and get something special like in SA or IV, or provide any other benefit or outcome in the heists - other than their skills. Choosing a crew member is just a strategy/risk/management thing, that slightly changes the events of the actual heist, and the profit.

Well Chef is Gunman and enforcer at Trevor Phillips Enterprises just as Jason Michaels was the enforcer of The Lost Alderney chapter. Trevor is the "Billy Grey" of TPE.

 

If you compare the TLaD mission "Angels in America" to the V mission "Trevor Phillips Industries" especially the cutscenes, you"ll see the comparison.

 

Trevor is just like Billy Grey man, he'll run TPE the way it needs to be run!!

That truce is kinda on shaky ground. Officially there's a General who wants Franklin to go the option A route and destroy that truce.

I don't really like Paige. I only use her if I accidentally deny Rickie's call on playthroughs or simply went AFK when he called.

 

Packie and Chef were the only Heist crew members I liked. The cheap ones were dicks like Daryl(?) for example, after you finish hauling out the gold in Obvious he tells you "idiots" he did what he was paid to do and just runs. I like to pretend he died shortly after in my headcanon.

Exactly man! Packie and Chef on guns, Rickie on the headset. That's how we roll at Trevor Phillips Industries!
