Is Micah the most unlikable Rockstar character?

Recommended Posts

woggleman

Other betrayers like Lance, Big Smoke and Ryder and even Dimitri to a certain extent at the start of IV have some redeeming and likable qualities that make you at least understand where they come from. Micah has none of this. He calls other gang members, racial slurs, creeps on the women at the camp and probably would have had his way with Sadie if Dutch didn't intervene. He likes to insult Arthur and John, shoots the dog for no reason and enjoys chaos and violence. He also is a backstabbing traitor who cares nobody but himself and drives a wedge in the gang for his own benefit. There is nothing good about him at all.

It's gotta be between him, Trevor, and Mori Kibbutz.

Yep he is. And he is purposefully written for that reason too.

He's kind of funny in a nasty mean way

 

I admit, I chuckle everytime he calls Arthur Black Lung

Okay, cowpoke.

His most likable quality is how good of a gunslinger he is. He's probably a better shooter than Arthur and John.

Trevor?!

 

I disagree, Trevor is one of the best video games characters ever created... he might be too deep for you to comprehend

Indeed he is, Trevor is the best right below Arthur.

 

Micah isn't likable enough to be sociopath so he's just a dog beating psychopath. His voice is grating, his character design is ugly, and he's not funny or fun to root for. He's like a more evil Bill, at least bill has some amusing bits. I think rockstar finally created something no one can love other than masochists, that and gta online.

He might have been evil, but from a ruthlessly pragmatic point of view he wasn't incorrect. If they had cut their dead weight they could have run a lot longer, and the gang would have been even more formidable

With his crappy crappy ideas and his ability to underestimate everyone, no matter how much "dead weight" they cut, they wouldn't last long in any scenario.

I think Ash and Trevor are the most disliked people in Rockstar games with the introduction to the HD era of games. 

Ash was responsible for all the crap Johnny got into. All the work for nothing. Also, many people including me had a bond with Johnny. He was a very likable character. Trevor, later on, killed him. Even though Trevor was a funny guy, many players cant forgive him since he killed Johnny. Micah is definitely up there with those two.

Sounds like most of the players in Blackwater on RDO right now.

Gary Smith from Bully takes that award by a mile. Should have known that he would turn on you at an early part of the game and since then he had been shadowing you until the time was right.

There's a difference between a character whose written purposely to be disliked and one that's just awful. Micah's pretty much the perfect villian because he's written to push the players' buttons.

 

Example of characters no one likes because they're objectively terrible are Stretch and Wei Cheng because no one ever dislikes them for being good villians. They're universally hated because they suck.

Agree in general. I thought Wei Cheung could have been good though. I think he delivers his lines with menace. The problem is he’s only in the game for a sum total of five minutes.

Fully agree, Micah is easily a favourite character for me. Not because I liked him, but because he was just this, written so well I actually hated the man.

 

Really wanted to wrap up the epilogue in hope of getting him after the end of chapter 6 really, was always on my mind, lol.[\Spoiler] Hope the spoiler works in case, lol.

 

Started like that with Trevor and his opening scenes when we meet him after the first heist. Nasty piece of work really. But as that story grew, I started to sympathise with the man. Then his mum showed up and I really felt for him, lol. Poor broken man. I also liked how Trevor is quite an honest and direct man too, felt you'd know where you stand with the chap and he'd just kill you or love you really. He's a sh*t to Ron and Wade, but he needs them as they're his family in a way, just like Michael and his family are.

Messed the spoiler tag up a bit, but not my worst effort, lol.

Yes, or well, I can't speak for everyone but for me, yes. Considering he was written entirely for the purpose of being hated and nothing more. He's pretty one dimensional. Paper thin. He has no qualities or aspects where you can even sympathize with him. Villains like Loki (unrelated to R*) may be a villain but have development where you will sympathize and or, given into liking someone like him. Micah has none of that. Some people hate Trevor, but at least with Trevor he has that 'Loki aspect' where despite him being introduced, or seen as the bad guy, you instantly sympathize with him because you learn his backstory and his side of the narrative. He was hurt when Michael abandoned him (if I'm remembering how GTA V goes correctly, been a while since I played.) Even near the ending he still cared about Michael. The small things like that make you more enticed to a character even when they're bad. Arthur, for example, is a bad person, even though we think he isn't it doesn't change how he killed thousands of people and taken from them, but we love him because he has redeeming qualities and another perspective that gets revealed.

 

Micah is just a paper-thin irritating arse. They gave him no redeeming qualities. Nothing but a plain pathetic psychopath.

Micah's death scene was pretty funny I thought. 

 

I'll give my vote out to Gerald.  Guy pays crap, and doesn't do anything.

Trevor's a weakly written character IMO, but he seems to have his small niche of diehard fans that love him either way.

 

With regards to Micah everytime I see him in my current save I get the temptation to punch him in the head. He just has one of those faces.
