Who's the worse character in gta 5?

Recommended Posts

chronic lumbago

Trevor's really just a sad attempt at trying to be Jack Torrance from The Shining. The difference being is the former was actually a menacing psychopath. The latter is an over bearing man child who probably smells like a sewer.

At the beginning maybe. Give trevor a suburban look, leather jacket and jeans, shave his nasty hair, give him a short beard, sunglasses and voila new Trevor.

 

I thought Trevor wasn't as bad as many people think. The Johnny stuff pissed me off, but it also made Trevor the type of guy that makes you wonder what he's gonna do next. Not the pinnacle of fictional writing, but he was entertaining.

I don't care about him killing Johnny, but I do wish Trevor sold the "psycho" label better. He just felt more like a combination of random personality traits thrown together into a mess. That said, he's not the worst character in the game to me.

 

When I first read about Trevor in the previews, I thought he would take cues from Leo Kasper from Manhunt 2. The game wasn't great but it was Rockstar's best take on a psychopathic character. Menacing but not over-the-top.

While I LOVE Trevor, and think he may be the single best character in the history of the GTA universe, there is one hole in his personality. The whole overly weepy, comedic persona when it comes to both his Mother and Mrs. Medraso. Don't get me wrong, I get the humor in it, and it was funny enough in its own way, particularly as it was intentionally juxtaposed against his sociopathic, over-the-top insanity. But I think it should have toned down just a little.

 

I mean the guy who rightfully and so awesomely, caved in the head of everyone's favorite drug-addled, nice personolded, pansy-ass ex-biker-gang-leader could have been a little less weepy, even with his obvious Mommy-issues. Actually, if you watch shows like The Sopranos, and other entertainment with strong, alpha-male, and arguably psychotic protagonists, the whole "Gangster with Mommy issues" is a common theme. So that, in and of itself was fine in Trevor's case.

 

But if I had my druthers, that aspect of his personality would still be there, and would still be exaggerated for comedic value, but maybe toned down just a bit.

In terms of morals and behaviour - absolutely Trevor! Some of the stuff he does is just downright hideous and inexcusable to me.

In terms of who made me roll my eyes and tut the most - has to be Amanda, closely followed by Michael's kids. I mean, Michael can be a douche at times but they are so ungrateful and obnoxious in the extreme. Still kind of disappointed we had no choice in whether or not he got the family back together.

Devin Weston.

 

  • He underpaid Micheal, Franklin and Trevor after they did a lot of hard work for him
  • He puts the blame on Micheal for killing his legal counsel, even though Molly was being a total idiot after walking in front of a massive air compressor
  • Sent Merryweather guards to his house after the Molly ordeal.
  • He's also a rich snob.

Need I say more?

I f*cking loathed Franklin. Annoying, whiny ass bitch of a character. Should’ve had an option to kill him at the end of the game.

Tracey, and Amanda a close second. Female characters are incredibly badly written in GTA V, nothing but lazy one dimensional stereotypes and a couple of "cool girl" minor heist crew members who are barely seen to try and make up for it

 

Tonya + the most boring and pointless side missions of all time that she contributes (right at the beginning of the game when you're hoping for some cool gang crime stuff no less)

 

The younger Cheng, omg isn't it funny a high Asian guy!!!!??!1 And the older one and Stretch simply because they're supposed to be main antagonists but are barely seen/heard

 

Franklin has to be mentioned too because he doesn't have any "character" or personality to speak of

There's a few of them.

 

Fabian - douche

 

Amanda - Typical dumb housewife stereotype

 

Jimmy - Annoying, useless. Tries to blame his dad for everything instead of trying to actually do something about his problems/issues.

 

Don - The only good thing about this guy is how he died.

 

Weston - Biggest douchebag in a game with quite a few douches in it. Never payed despite boasting about his fortune. Hypocritical to a fault, acting like a liberal while being part of the military industrial-complex. Also just a condescending asshole.

Martin Madrazo had so much potential to be a powerful figure in the criminal underworld. With a luxury ranch and a home in the hills to boot, as well as a reputation for being ruthless and intimidating to his competitors and allies, nothing was going to stop him from achieving his goals. 

 

The only man to bring Michael out of retirement because he thought it was necessary to bring down Madrazo's house after an altercation, and threaten the GTA Online protagonist by feeding him/her to the dogs if he/she failed him, referring to a phone call to his introduction. 

 

Then Trevor came along, kidnapped his wife and physically attacks him, without any harm received, displaying Madrazo as a weak individual. With the exception of placing a bounty on both Michael and Trevor if they are seen in Los Santos, Madrazo was wasted potential because of his failure to deal with a deranged sociopath in Trevor. 

 

It took a peace offering, in form of an Aztec statue, to bring the dispute to an end, but not without Madrazo showing his weakness for the final time.

 

Trevor is my favourite, not because of his personality or behaviour, but because of his ability to stand up to the cause and do things that he sees as a threat or for the sake of his friends, such as crippling the Lost biker gangs influence in Blaine County, or helping Michael's daughter from embarrassing herself on TV, or finding out the truth about Brad, or waging a one man war against a private military company.

Michael's family really just annoyed me.  I think helping them through their issues would have felt more touching if Rockstar had fleshed them out some more, the game was pretty long, I'm sure it wouldn't have been too hard to do.  Maybe then we'd have developed somewhat of an emotional attachment to them and genuinely wanted to actually help them.  Instead it was just a pain whenever something needed to be done and I felt like I could be using my time elsewhere.

Martin. That dude sucks. Him and his old, ugly face should have died like the other antagonists in the Deathwish ending. Just losing an ear is what I'd call getting off easy, especially considering who did it to him and what kind of a guy he is (Trevor). Don't even get me started on how he is in Online. Acting all badass and sh*t when he's really the exact opposite of threatening. Ooh, I'm so worried about all those invites being spammed on my in-game phone. Also, his voice acting is dogsh*t compared to the other antagonists and the protagonists themselves.

Honestly? Micheal's ENTIRE family.

 

Amanda was a cheap slut and she's the main reason why Micheal is doing heists again.

 

Jimmy was a fat slob and he was an ungrateful bastard.

 

Tracy was another cheap slut but worse than Amanda.

 

That time when Micheal's family left him was a relief from all the sh*t they put him through.

Tanisha for her hypocrisy.
"look at me, I'm Tanisha, and everyone should be loyal to those in the hood who do nothing but drag others down but not me, I'm going to escape the hood with my rich doctor husband"

I will say that she does have a point about Lamar always trying to cut Franklin into his dumb ass schemes, and that's great, but it still goes nowhere and nearly gets Lamar killed 99.9% of the time.

I don't understand what Franklin sees in her. I know how it feels having a repressed, subconscious love for an ex deep down but she is blatantly manipulative and hypocritical. One of Franklin's switch scenes is hauling a cab for Tracey after a booty call, why doesn't he pursue her instead? I'm sure Michael would approve.

Tanisha is another character I don't like either, that's for sure. The only thing of note she does is convince Franklin to help out Lamar again even if her reasoning is weak. At least I remember her name unlike the other characters I'm about to mention. There are two other characters I don't like not because they're the worst but because of how completely forgettable they are. Ok, I'll admit I'm about to contradict myself but I'm sure many others forgot about them more.

 

A pointless character I can think of is that tennis coach, whose name I don't care to remember. I practically forgot he existed once Fabien (the yoga guy) got more focus around Amanda and his flirting with her. Amanda cheats on Michael with him, okay, and leads him to that house which gets pulled down (which leads me to another character I want to point out) which then leads on to the rest of the game's main plot. Still, something should have happened to him later on.

 

Another one is that (eastern European?) mistress of Martin's whose name I also don't remember nor will I search up. She only appears in like one cutscene in the entire game, and then after it I forgot about her. She owns that house Michael and Franklin pull down, but so what? She's still useless, and anyone in her place would be too. I think there was an opportunity for her to be more important in the story since I read somewhere (maybe on this forum, I don't know) that it would have been a better idea for her to get kidnapped instead of Patricia (yeah, I remember her because she has more screentime lol) after that Caida Libre mission. Martin enjoys screwing her more than his wife, so it would sting even more for him. Right? The point of her being in the game (besides that house) is to show how much of a cheater that guy is.

 

I remember some of the Strangers and Freaks better than those two I mentioned above.


Bonus: That boat of Michael's. That's it, huh? The boat's gone for good, maybe. Michael failed to get it back, okay. Would it have killed him to get another one later on in the game (as in give the player the option to buy him one)? Heck, why not go the coincidental route and have Michael find it again somehow and take it back himself? Well, at least it further shows what a little sh*t Jimmy is.

The whole 'De Santa' family. It was probably also a bit of a satirical American family, but I prefer the family of one of the protagonists of my favorite game series to be actually interesting. Very shallow and dumb, especially those kids.

A protagonist whose name starts with T. Guess who?

 

Anyway, this started to get boring. I'd rather state my second least favorite bunch of characters after Trevor: the Townley family (De Santa, whatever, Townley is still a better name). A bunch of screaming, ungrateful douchebags. Say what you gotta say about how bad Michael is as a father, but he deserves way more respect from them.

More specifically, Michael. Although Franklin is an excuse of a protagonist, the whole excuse of a story for this excuse of a game runs on Michael's problems.

 

Here is a list of things that would have prevented the storyline:



wearing condoms

getting actual therapy

not selling out to the feds

educating kids to not get scammed

educating kids to not be spoiled

keeping track of the kids

not killing, just as Amanda wanted

not quoting movies in a heist

not getting scammed

not letting others manipulate Franklin

not committing suicide

not killing Trevor

not living under a rock

Michael comes off as a chump honestly. Not only walked over by his joke of a family but even dumb enough to become a full fledged Epsilon member and also get conned into thinking he's really "working in movies" when he's just a paid thug, not to mention the therapy scam. I'm guessing they wanted that Tony Soprano type criminal/family man thing. But the balance is way off so he's too much of the stereotypical lame/mid life crisis dad and not enough badass. I still think he's a decent character (helped a lot by good dialogue and acting) but they should've given him more balls.
