Is Victor Vance the most underrated protagonist?

Victor is #2 on my favorite protagonists list. Sure he was a softie sometimes and he tried to escape from the world of crime, but he was a badass and a guy to be feared.

 

Vic > all of the other 3D era protagonists. Sorry, Tommy. :whistle:

Totally agree. Not only Vic, but the whole game is totally underrated due to released on few systems.

 

I wish R* logic didn't made him happen to be victim 2 years later after the events of game.

I know little about global tendencies concerning Victor, but for me he is far from being underrated. In fact, he is my most favorite protagonist. Unlike all protagonists before him, he is forced into life of crime, and it is not a choice he makes eaisly. However, on the downside, he has a soft character - something that allows others to 'ride' him, namely Marty and Lance.

Have you really just only played %2.67 of GTA SA? :D

He's a great main character, obviously not as popular as Niko or CJ. Probably because the game came out on PSP then on PS2 later on in the year.

Vice City criminal

I think Vic is awesome even though he's a major hypocrite.

Everyone (Including other protagonists) is an hypocrite at one point or another.

I think R* went for a protagonist like Vic to build-up to more realistic characters in IV.

It's a shame that people were more interested in seventh generation consoles and PC gaming by the time VCS came out.

Very true, and a very good point about Rockstar's lead up to the HD games.

To me, VCS is a candidate for the best 3D GTA/GTA maybe, and yeah, Victor was a great protagonist, he had his morals and it was remarkable in the storyline, he's a very well designed protagonist, too bad he ain't too popular.

No, he's not, he might be slightly overrated.

 

Fanbase always beats around the bush the issue that he's alledgelly a morally upstanding citizen... that created a criminal empire, his canon has been ruined too, i can't take him seriously because of it.

He's still a good character despite all that.

Yes. Vic is the greatest protagonist ever, behind CJ and Niko. Because he actually cares about his friends and family, unlike Tommy who's a greedy asshole.

Vic was a great character and under utilized too. He had great potential to be a major side character in gta vice city but it's too bad he was killed in the opening cutscene

I played some of VCS and Vic was a good character. But the original vice city was my favorite. I'm probably going to purchase the game again for my YouTube channel.

One of the most underrated yes. He's basically Niko in 3D Universe. Both have morals and warm hearts. Both men are former Soldiers. Overall, they have similar personality IMO. The only difference between them though, that Niko never became a Drug Kingpin like Victor did.

 

The most underrated IMO is Mike from Advance. He is loyal yet won't think twice to kill traitors. Mike is a good protagonist, it's just...he isn't as popular as other. Yes, same case with Vic too.
