How did Tarnell (fat GSF homie) and Troy (that one with braid hair) go

Recommended Posts

How the f*ck did Tarnell (fat GSF homie) and Troy (that one with braid hair) got their names?

 

Just wondering, since I can't find any sources of their names, and those folks at GTA Wikia never had a doubt on it. Are they names from the YouTube video series featuring Tarnell (by DigThatBox -- Superman II, Wing Walking II, )? Or are their names mentioned in the 2 Player Free Roam mode in PS2?

I think their voice actors are credited during the ending credits, and these names were just arbitrarily assigned to them rather than just saying "GSF member" since it's easier to identify them if they have names.

I've checked the credits -- both the starting one and the ending ones. Solo (Tarnell's voice actor) is mentioned only in the ending ones in Cast, there's no "Tarnell" nor "Troy" mentioned anywhere. In the starting credits, there is no section for Cast voice actors.

 

Look,

GTA Wiki is notorious for making crap up, just ask universetwisters, and see his thread.

I've read it in the past. It's strange, when I want to add actual information about a ped (CWFYFR1) they don't. Yet they themselves add Taxi Driver, "Tarnell", "Troy", Fam3, etc.

 

But since, the practice was spread to us all... and nowadays we just call him Tarnell anyways. Not a big deal tho, I was just wondering.

GTA Wiki is notorious for making crap up, just ask universetwisters, and see his thread.

Making things up is the past time of nearly every Fan.

To Me if Rockstar & Company does not publish it. It Ain't True.

The game is what it is, Some people just cannot have "unknowns", so, find it necessary to fill in the gaps that Rockstar left in the game for those with imagination.

The gaps are there, Rockstar does not need to waste resources to explain Everything.

The "needy" don't need to argue or drag up every minute bit to "make the story".

 

[i cannot imagine what these children would do if they played "Donky-Kong", Who is that Great Ape, how did it get the name, why is it rolling barrels, where did it get the barrels, and why is that guy trying to get it.]

Wait, it says Solo there. Do I now get the feeling that the guy who played Franklin also did voice-work for San Andreas?

Yes,

Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas (Video Game) Gangster (voice, as Solo, 2004)

[Shawn D. "Solo" Fonteno is an African-American actor, voice actor, DJ rapper and recording artist who is best known as the voice and the acting performer of Franklin Clinton from the video game Grand Theft Auto V (2013). Fonteno's performance in Grand Theft Auto V was mainly recorded using motion capture technology. ]

We don't know. But at least thankfully, GTA Wikia doesn't go that far.

Still bugged about "Tarnell" and "Troy" tho - despite I actually like the names and am cool with it, GTA Wikia shouldn't just write anything without proof

The ONLY things that are TRUE is what Rockstar Publishes.

And Rockstar wants the PLAYER to use the Imagination for all they did not say or do.

I am aware of that. I read that somewhere a while back. I just did not know that Solo had also done work for San Andreas.

Wikinerdyfanboys is how I call them when they make baseless assumptions.

I know that in this day and age sometimes is like forceful to visit a wiki, but...

 

To me the homies are Curly Larry and Moe.

And always fill the car with every of them and CJ with green clothes.

I know this is a horrible necro but since rule #1: USE SEARCH got me here and I have something substantive to add in terms of research, I believe it is warranted rather than cluttering the forum by creating a new one.

It's only taken us 4 years to seriously look into these names...

https://gta.fandom.com/wiki/Talk:Tarnell#Name

Conclusion so far is pure fanon and they'll probably be removed shortly.

 

Also worth noting (as per my research) they were added to grandtheftwiki before being added to gta.wikia, and remain there to this day too.

 

Edit: 6 hours later - after a request to his talk page, the Fanon author has openly acknowledged the name source was SA-MP (not PS2 official MP). The names are being removed from gtawiki.
