Michael De Santa appreciation thread

Recommended Posts

CynicalRise

He's a liar, he's witty, he does what needs to do to protect his family from Devin, and stares at death right in the face. Some hate him, many love him.

He is my favorite protagonist after Claude and Tommy. Ned Luke and Rockstar did an amazing job with him.

He's got to get back to that Movie Studio.

 

Out of the Three Protagonists, he is my favourite.

Fun fact:

 

Pay close attention to Michael whenever somebody is talking on his right side; he shifts his body more towards that person. This is due to Michael's voice and motion capture actor Ned Luke being deaf in his right ear in real life.

Honestly, he must be my least favorite protag in the series, i can't imagine him starring V on his own, he whines too much, he's not badass or cool and his family is downright hateful and annoying, after playing V for 2 years, he started to get more on my nerves, however, he's a sharp dresser a witty guy (i love when Trevor and him trashtalk each other) and Ned Luke did a great job voicing him.

Although my game actually says I've played as Franklin more than the other two, Michael is my favourite.

 

Loved that he loved movies, especially loved the movie lot missions. WISH that was a bigger arc. Perhaps it just reminded me of Vice City too much.

My favorite protagonist of the three.He gave a fresh take to the normal rag to riches storyline and even though he whines,he has a good reason for it.Ned Luke did an absolutely amazing job and provides as the mastermind of the 3 protagonist system.

 

He also reminded me of an Old,Retired Tommy when he taught Franklin,which I wish had a longer arc (just like the movie studio missions.)

He's not much of a yoga person either lol :lol:

 

@Kvic: Michael's running animation looks fine to me. Luis Lopez is the one who looks like he literally sh*ts his pants every time he runs.

Ned Luke did a brilliant job of portraying Mike, from his speeches to his full out anger moments. You get a movie sense whenever Michael is in a scene.

I'm glad you made this thread. As bad as V's story is, Michael is a great character. He's my favorite character in the series besides my sweet Niko.

Niko is still my favorite GTA protagonist, but Michael is up there. I like how he's a movie buff and family man - it gives his character a more naturalistic sense of depth.

 

Unfortunately, he had to share the story with Trevor and Franklin, so the character development was thinned out between the three.

 

I really wish the story was just him and Trevor battling their past, without the FIB's involvement or Franklin.

The V section needs more appreciation threads.

Is that sarcasm?

Oh, you're f*cking A-right it's sarcasm. You f*ck! A few weeks ago, I was happily retired, sulking by my swimming pool... then my psychotic best friend shows up out of nowhere to torture me over mistakes I made, honest mistakes I made over a decade ago! We, our little posse, are flat f*cking broke, but hey, let's go out and spend two million dollars on a tandem rotor f*cking chopper, so I can go steal nerve gas from f*cking terrorists! Forgive me, you ignorant f*ck, but sarcasm is all I've f*cking got! Sarcasm, and a room full of you c*nts!

Emotions aren't just about being sad. For example your entire post is emotional because you're getting pissy over nothing.

 

Take your own advice.

It's a great movie isn't it?:)

 

Speaking of which Michael has a lot of similarities to Henry Hill. Before GTA V's release I was hoping he would have some mafia ties.

 

A little disappointed that he didn't, but still the best character in the game IMO.

Mike has his own demons but at the same time has diluted them by adding a ton of Hollywood into his own personality. He feels like he's in a movie at times. That's a symptom of his huge ego. He's my favorite of the three because of his character and his style. We have a bit in common me and Mike, when it comes to how we view the world, very cynical, sarcastic. I think plenty of people are the same way.
