Many names come to my mind.

To begin with.. I'd mention Mike Toreno and Catalina. I particularly enjoyed the missions Toreno gave to CJ, from flying school to stealing the military jet.

Toreno's character history is far more interesting than say, R* attempt of rehashing Mike through ULPC, as an undercover agent who disguised himself as a drug dealer and made connections with Big Smoke to sell drugs to him, and soon Cesar having heard of the deals informs CJ about Toreno meeting with Ryder which finally sets the stage for CJ meeting Toreno. CJ actually worked with him in SF not knowing about his true identity but was mainly focused on destroying the drug syndicate. So, his role is very well established and nicely put into perspective giving a slight twist to his character and giving a good change of pace by working for a government agent who also trains you, making a deal of your brother's release in exchange for his help, which I did not find unbelievable like others that did.


Catalina, still stands as my favorite female character in the series. I wished there was more fun to be had causing havoc and thrilling missions in the countryside with her as much as Mike's. There was so much scope, esp. enjoyed her phone calls..

Catalina: I know it's you, you stinking perro!

CJ: Look, just say what you gotta say. I ain't interested in these stupid games!

Catalina: Stupid games? This is my heart you play with!

CJ: What? Look, you... Damn! Gotta change my number!

@Crossbones, Ray Boccino? How come you liked him? He was a total douchebag, and reminds me of Devin Weston a bit. Greedy and think he knows things better than anyone else.

- Ryder is amazing. I hate him a lot, but that's the beauty of his character. Its a pity that Rockstar didn't give him more screen time.

- Big Smoke, same reasons as above.

- OG LOC, hilarious as hell.

- Toreno
