Who do you hate more out of Michael's children?

(I will apologize in advance if this topic has already been done before. If any staff see this, feel free to lock this topic if it's been done before, or if you feel that this should be on another thread)

 

Anyway, who do you think is more unbearable out of Michael's kids?

 

Tracey (annoying slut) or Jimmy (fat whiny loser)?

 

I personally hate Jimmy more. I can't stand the sound of his voice.

Both are interesting characters. I don't really dislike either of them.

Like many GTA microcosms, Michael's family is a social comment and at times a parody of real life.

 

Michael's kids are no more than a product of Michael and Amanda's parenting. Clearly this consists of throwing money at them to shut them up. They weren't brought up, they were bought up.

 

I pity both of Michael's kids because they have had a lousy father and mother who suddenly realise too late what they are and are powerless to turn back time.

That makes sense. Michael's genocide doesn't help either.

I personally hate Tracey more because she is a annoying one, always interested in porn and becoming a celebrity. Micheal have saved her more than one time and i want to slaughter because of her this behavior.

I thought Tracey and Jimmy were quite interesting. I enjoyed the personalities and how each one was different. I thought the character dialogue was written pretty good and both of the voice actors played their character quite well. I loved the whole dysfunctional family stuff. As ~Tiger~ mentioned above, they weren't brought up, they were bought up which is a very good example of putting it. The family as a whole was interesting.

Bottom line is, if people didn't behave like Jimmy and Tracey De Santa (or Michael and Amanda), then there would be no need for characters like them.

I don't hate both of them, in fact, they're realistic caricatures of the flaws of helicopter baby boomer parents with big money and the offspring which takes things such as social media, internet, and

a better quality of life for granted, all crafted and put together pretty nicely. To think I'd see a more dysfunctional family than say, the Simpsons or the South Park children/families.

Having characters like Michael and his family further shows that Dan Houser and company still have something going for them, as these kind of characters go to make an alerting message about

the dangers of modern-day families who try too hard to live down something as shallow as the premise of the "American Dream." And that's before people like Franklin and Trevor get thrown in the

mix.

Michael's family as a whole sucks. I honestly have no clue what child i hate more. At least tracey didn't let michael drink something that contained drugs.

Jimmy, just for the fact that Tracey at least seems to care for her dad and shows remorse that she has to be away from him. She's an annoying slut, but she's an annoying slut who loves her dad. Jimmy, on the other hand, is annoying, whiny, has no problems drugging his dad and then blaming him for it, stealing his money and possessions and then blames his dad again, thinks he's hot sh*t but is a loser, can't even defend himself against some internet geeks kidnapping him, is stupid, weak, has no plans for his future but just wants to leech and I better stop here. In short, he's a total absolute c*nt.

Tracey really isn't that bad, she's just like a stereotypical teenage girl, Jimmy on the other is a real piece of sh*t tbh. Guess he gets it from his father.

they are both equally annoying but i would say jimmy he is obviously not smart. he tried to sell michaels boat probably for drug money. he then blames michael. then he takes michael to where tracy is so tracy can get in trouble too. he drugges his dad up and steals his car and some money. if ever a kid needed to be spanked jimmy is the one who deserves it.

Jimmy by a mile. I'm not especially fond of Tracey either ("Come OOON, DAAAD! It's LOS SAAAAAANTOOOS!!!!" and her temper tantrum during "Fame or Shame" made me cringe so hard), and they really didn't do a lot with her storywise, but at least she showed a more likable and pleasant side by being the only one out of the family to contact Michael during the separation. Jimmy I may have found a little funnier, but between his trash-talking and the fact that he drugged his father while they were in the car, kicked him out to the curb and stole his car and took some of his money, yeah, he was a nasty little piece of sh*t. And while he did get a redemption of sorts, by being the one to bring the family back together and showing initiative in turning his life around and actually doing something worthwhile rather than just lay around eating, screaming racial slurs into the mic and jacking off... I dunno, it just felt rushed and not really "earned" to me.

 

And why was f*ckin' JIMMY the focus character regarding the family aspect? It really should have been Amanda. I guess they were just terrified of exploring more grounded and adult themes like marital strife after the polarized reaction to GTA IV's more mature themes, but it just feels so weird that Michael's wife is sidelined for most of the story in favor of his CowaDoody playing, masturbating, bong-smoking, Mountain Dew gulping and Doritos munching stereotype son. It's an example of what is IMO one of the game's main issues, where you can tell they wanted to explore more mature IV-esque themes, but pulled their punches and fell back on easier, "funnier" situations to try and appease angry fans who wanted San Andreas 2.0.

 

Buuuuuut I'm getting sidetracked beating on a dead horse. Anyway, both kids were pretty bad (hell, none of the De Santas were saints, and that includes Michael... hell, especially Michael), but where Tracey was just annoying, Jimmy's antics actually left kind of a sour taste in my mouth.

Agreed. It makes me cringe when Jimmy tries to use big words to look smart and/or cool.

Idk how people are saying tracey , she wasnt even that bad. Jimmy was unbearable , if there was a decision to have him killed off some point in the story i would have let it happen

It felt like more was done with Jimmy to try to have him and Michael reconnect with each other, with Tracey it just felt like Michael was just trying to prevent her from being a hoe over and over again, so from a storyline standpoint it feels like she's more disposable.

 

Examined for just their character, Jimmy is easily the worst of the two.

No doubt jimmy is most hated! i downright wonder what would happen if you decline the request of jimmy to be rescued from his nerdy kidnappers? Probably getting so annoyed and yet having no real courage/means to kill him jimmy would just show up in a few days again.

But tracey is kinda adorable and her tantrums are understandable when dad is phsyco and mom sleeps with almost every male figure she is in contact with long enough.

To be honest I hate the whole family. They are just there as satire which almost everyone knows about that its not even funny. Amanda being a cheating wife, Jimmy being an overweight spoiled brat. Tracy being a slut. Why the hell can't there be any positivity in the game? Surely there would be someone in the game that is normal.

 

The only persons in the game I can somehow take seriously is Franklin and the daughter of the mob boss you can save in the side mission. That's how bad it is.

Tracey's a spoilt little bitch, but Jimmy provokes every negative stereotype I hate about modern gamers.

 

So Jimmy.

Tracy may be a spoiled bitch but Jimmy reminds me too much of my own personal cringe, sh*t talking on CoD or "Righteous Slaughter 7" Talking all ghetto and stuff around Franklin. He is one big sack of cringe.

They are both awful. Jimmy fat sack of crap that blames his obesity on his father. How is your fatness his fault? You're rich as f*ck and you cannot afford to go outside for a walk? He also blames other problems of himself on his father when it isn't his fault. He can't get a job because he's dumb with no skill or trade and instead of trying to find one he wastes time playing CoD.

 

But Tracey not much better. Like her brother she blames all her problems on her father. Thought it may be Michael's fault you're vapid and think pornography and dancing like a stripper will make people love you because he ignored you and cheated on Amanda. But then you get angry when your father tries to actually be the father you always wanted help you realize that you're making mistakes?

 

Like said above, most of GTA5 cast are negative attitude. It not just these two, but most every character in this game. It gets rather annoying when you want to just chill out and some person is yelling at you. It one thing to want parody things and make some characters have bad attitude, but Rockstar can still write them in way where they tolerable and that their bad or cheesy attitude actually makes you like them more. How am I to feel sorry for Michael when his family treats him like garbage and vice versa?
