Thoughts on Jerry Martinez?

Recommended Posts

FlexiveFowl

Jerry Martinez, the main antagonist of VCS isn't talked about or acknowledged much in the GTA community. He is a very underrated villain and I want to hear what you all think about him. Good villain/character or overall forgettable?

Eh, he was alright, but pretty forgettable. But not as forgettable as LCS and V's antagonists, of course.

A poorly written or badly unmemorable antagonist. He was alright when I played the game, but I never managed to pick up the reason why he screwed everyone over. What did he have against Vic that he had him kicked out of the military? What did he have against Phil to betray him? Why was he such a backstabber and a criminal while still being a goofy Sergeant who never took his position seriously? I cannot even begin to imagine him shouting down the ears of new recruits. He's not very well written at all, especially, as a main antagonist.

he resembled a cool image as an antagonist, phsically, but very poor background

Honestly, Jerry Martinez was just a watered-down version of Officer Tenpenny from GTA San Andreas, only less likable.

He was funny but made no sense as a antagonist probably the weakest in the series imo.

Wish he acted how he's depicted on his artwork.

Original post didn't make sense. Probably was too tired at the time.

He is so hilarious.

 

There are some quotes i like in this game from him. 

 

Relax! You're so f*cking histrionic. It's like hanging out with a bitch on her period.

 

The thing is you work for Phil and Phil... Phil works for me. Which makes you my bitch's bitch. Figure that out.

Every time I play Last Stand, i always consistently grab him by the collar and throw, breaking his neck or letting him fall from the rooftop of the building.

The mendez brothers should have been the main antagonists and martinez should have been killed early in the game.

Totally agree with that. I never did understand why he was screwing everyone over, especially Vic.

Weakest antagonist in the 3D universe. Should've gotten killed at the end of Act I and be replaced by Armando Mendez as the main villain.

Uh, no. Despite the fact that he's not memorable, the weakest antagonist is actually, uh...LCS' antagonist. He's so weak I couldn't even remember his name. :lol: (Massimo or something like that.)

I'm going to be terribly honest with this one. I forgot he existed... Vinnie should've been the main antagonist instead of that other Sicilian Joseph Stalin impersonator.

He was just forgettable. Still better than Masimo Torini (LCS' antagonist) and V's antagonists combined though.

 

The Mendez brothers were more believable antagonists than Martinez, since they were more intimidating and interesting. Similarly, that can be said about Vincenzo compared to Torini in LCS.

He's alright, but very hollow all things considered. Still love VCS and his presence, but the brothers should have been the main antagonists, not him.

I agree with everything you said. Even with that said, I was kind of hoping for there to be some kind of character development to show a more serious side to him than what was presented. Even when seeing him in the final mission, he didn't really show a rather sinister side to him. He still seemed like a laid-back and goofy type. The only time we saw any semblance of seriousness was when Vic confronted him about being screwed over during a phone call, only for Martinez to tell him that he screwed them both.

His baffoonish personality is a mask of his dark demeanor.

Could be, but I believe he could've been toned down a little. He barely took anything seriously.

 

The Mendez brothers on the other hand are the ones who I consider to be the main threat.

Not really the best because he's more of a bully than an antagonist imo (he didn't have a real motive to go against Vic). This is kinda the exact same case with Tenpenny from SA. I do like it very much though that Vic has the balls to be the one cruising around him, The Mugshot Longshot is one dark mission when you take into account what Vic does just to frame Martinez. And the way he finishes him off by spitting on his corpse is so satisfying. More protagonists should be like this regarding the antagonist.
