Should Trevor be considered the worst GTA character ever created?

Recommended Posts

GN10Gaming

I think Tonya is more deserving of that title.

Hmmm nice bike

Wasn't a fan of Trevor, I thought he was too try-hard and goofy of a character. I get that they were trying to make him out to be a legit psychopath, but he didn't feel like a scary person and was more of an asshole to everyone and killed some people now and then. And then we find out he's a cannibal, and then he smokes meth, and then he eats out of the garbage, and then he has issues from childhood, etc.

 

Also, while I know this is a petty thing to complain about for a fictional character, I really hated his lack of personal hygiene. Even before the game came out, I was pretty grossed out by this scene described by Game Informer where we learn that Trevor doesn't really use toilet paper. I actualy thought "So we have to run around as a guy who doesn't even wipe his ass?!" Then again, maybe this makes him more relatable to certain people, lol.

Franklin's worst. He was barely developed throughout the story!

Worst character? No, I think that honor goes to Toni Cipriani from LCS. He's got three modes: bitching, whining, and angry, and he does erratic, psychotic things like slicing and dicing up a childhood nemesis and indirectly, but knowingly feeding him to random people, and bombing the f*ck out of two inner-city blocks (which had to have killed thousands of people) just because some failing, femboy politician asked him to for only $5,000.

 

LCS was pretty poorly written, in hindsight. Tony started out as a bitch, ended as a bitch with half his paycheck, then retroactively "reappeared" as an even bigger bitch that takes sh*t from his mother, who as a person should have been told to shut the f*ck up a long time ago.

Yeah Franklin was awful, very bland and really lacking in terms of character. But I guess he is more safe so he doesn't get as much hate as Trevor who was clearly going to be controversial anyway.

 

I think the latter is a bit too cartoony (Rockstar seemed to go overboard at times with how "crazy" he was) but he is still overall very entertaining & fun + Steven Ogg just gave a great performance.

Franklin isn't nearly the worst character. He just doesn't have the same amount of focus on the story that Michael and Trevor have, and is the most grounded. If you listen to the conversations he has with others, off cutscenes (hanging out, and other mission dialogues) you learn more about him.

It's like an angsty teenager, the kind who screams obscenities at complete strangers in GTA Online, snuck into Rockstar's offices took a gigantic sh*t on the script and they just decided to roll with it.

Trevor is the GTA character we deserve but not the one we necessarily want.

 

He justifies the rampages and murdering that we do in these games but his character was always gonna be insufferable.

Worst character? Definitely not. I don’t like him practically at all but I don’t think he’s that bad. I can understand why people enjoy him.

It's a bit of a stretch to say he's the absolute worst character in the entire series, but he was more interesting as a concept than in practice IMO.

Worse GTA character? No. Worse GTA Protagonist? Maybe, I'm not sure if he's worse than Franklin.

I think yes. I don't get why people say that he is a badass, he is ugly and he looks like he never took a bath. Plus he killed Johnny.

no, trevor is one of the funniest characters in gta.

but johnny was the most boring character in gta 4 (my own opinion).

Did you... not play the game or something? 

 

Who gives a sh*t about his looks or personal hygiene, he IS a badass.

A guy who enjoys dressing like a lady, eating and killing people for fun and you expect Trevor to be hygienic?

but no, Franklin is the worst character and most forgettable. If I wanted to watch a drug dealer I would move to Harlem

Short answer, nope.

 

Long answer, hell no! For me he is my favourite character in the whole franchise!  Everything I ever wanted, but I'm sure that says a lot about my own character in general haha. Everyone has different tastes, I don't believe Trevor is "worse" than any of the others really. All got their own style.

I can’t work out if we’re supposed to think Trevor is funny, threatening or just weird. Is he the comic relief? If so, why is he built up to be a major threat before he is introduced? There seems to be a dissonance between the idea of Trevor, that is of a genuinely violent, intimidating drug addict, to the execution of him, in which all of his violent and weird tendencies are played for laughs. He does stuff that a more serious game would leave you feeling seriously disturbed by, the way Eddie Low does.

Nss

Not the worst but definitely the most evil. He kill mah homeboy Jonathan and most likely r*ped poor Floyd. Trevor does admit to being bisexual, r*ping guys in prison and performing fellatio so they probably had some fun times. 

 

In early life he had trouble fitting into society, killed people, animals and even his own brother. If you have a listen to conversations between Niko and Eddie Low, Eddie says exactly what I believe a younger, introverted Trevor would say. I think he led a similar life to Eddie, before he met Michael. Alone, looking for boys to kill, r*pe and make a stew out of for his own pleasure.

Hell nah. GTA V would be a boring disappointment without T. Yes he is disgusting but who gives a sh*t it's GTA.

Yeah but they still wanted players to like Trevor and the more serious tone wasn't going to happen after the GTA IV bitching anyway. I guess it worked because Trevor is pretty popular. While I think his character is memorable and fun, he is definitely also rather messy in terms of writing, Rockstar just threw in everything "crazy" and edgy they could think of and called it a day.

No, Trevor is interesting character.

He is completely psycho, but written to be likeable with good traits.He reminds me Mad Mel Gibson.

Nope they didn't. He could be dumb. But he is one the most intelligent characters in the series.

He could be dumb but at the same time is one of the most intelligent characters in the series? So, like everyone else in the series from Tenpenny to Tommy to Salvatore all have the intelligence of a walnut compared to Trevor? At the same time you're unsure? You're certain but unsure simultaneously?

I never had a problem justifying anything. It's a videogame.

You lack the skills to read amigo. I can't remember saying the other protagonists are dumb. I just said trevor is smarter. Most white trash hillbilly psychopaths in movies and games are dumb. Trevor isn't. So the point is, R* didn't throw everything that's edgy and ordinary to create his character.

Says I lack the skill to read while simultaneously suggesting something that wasn't said. Nowhere in your post did you say "compared to other hillbilly/redneck characters, Trevor is more intelligent". You broadly said he was "one the most intelligent characters in the series". This implies folks like Toreno or Cortez are on par with Trevor, a guy who is simply street smart and savvy (but not savvy enough to consider stealing nukes from government-backed mercenaries a bad idea). Journey didn't mention hillbilly's and rednecks either, they said "crazy and edgy" which can apply to non-Southern characters.

Yeah the guy who recognizes his friend's quote from 9 years ago is dumb. A guy who manipulates every goddamn soul even michael himself is dumb. To get this straight let me tell you this. Trevor is one of the most intelligent protagonists in the series. Is that okay with you? I know it's hard to digest Johnny's death but the fact is Johnny boy is dead! Ain't nothing you can do about it. Hate all you can on trevor but that ain't gonna change facts. Have a nice day bruh.

I’m gonna jump in and give my 2 cents. I don’t think Trevor is as smart as you’re making him out to be. I don’t think he’s dumb either, he clearly isn’t. But calling him one of the most intelligent characters in gta feels like a stretch

You are confusing "he's not as intelligent as someone like Toreno" as "he's completely inept". I'm not saying Trevor's dumb, I'm saying he's not as smart as some of the other characters in the franchise, something your original post implied. 

 

Why bring up Johnny? You've been reading Chiro's posts haven't you.
