Is Micah the most unlikable Rockstar character?

Recommended Posts

Haha365

I'm not sure of i can say he's my most unlikable,  as it seems so forced. You are meant to hate him.  I prefer to hate a character, due to the things they have done and on my own accord.

Honestly he wouldn't have been as bad if it wasn't so blatantly obvious he was a rat from the get go.

 

I think there are far worse R* characters though, Ashley tops my list

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.

Darkest timeline Roman, where he's kidnapped and forced to send Niko texts every in-game hour. 😂

Micah could have been a poor protagonist given that’s he’s so 1 dimensionally a bad person. But I think it works because he’s a malign influence on Dutch who, despite having some serious flaws, is more morally ambiguous and complex.

 

Its perhaps a similar way that GoT can get away with Ramsay Bolton. Someone who is so obviously horrible it would be too black and white comic book style for a serious story, but when they’re surrounded by other characters less polarised it doesn’t reduce the whole thing to a simplistic good versus evil battle.

There is a similarity in that they are both trying to influence the gang leader.

 

The big difference is Micah is succeeding. Billy tolerates Brian as a yes man but knows he’s a pathetic idiot.

 

Micah is altogether more dangerous, many times over.

 

Dimitri is possibly as nasty, I’ll grant you.

Officer Tenpenny is only character I can think of that I hated as much as Micah. Almost no redeeming qualities between either of them, and are both just annoying assholes.

Cole Phelps? wtf. Anyway. There was a short while ago when I thought there was actually something wrong with Micah. When the gang was really on the run later.. He was getting fattet every time I seen him.. Thought he was having health issues being a rat and all. First play thru... But I was like dafuq wrong with this man. 

 

Killing this guy..truthfully.. None of my weapons had enough bullets to sastify my hatred for this backstabber.

To be fair Cole was kinda a womanising piece of sh*t when you really think about it. I actually started rooting for Kelso the more the story unfolded.

Uh honestly don't remember him being womanizing. He seemed pretty respectful around women and taking into consideration he tracked down a man who raped and murdered many women. I mean he cheated on his wife with Elsa but that's about it. Yeah it's sh*tty of him to do that but that's all you got?

 

Kelso and the other army buddies were unlikeable to me because they were all just jealous of Cole and his success which he earned in the police force. Am I supposed to root for Kelso or something? I only rooted for him because he was solving the case and doing what was right. His negativity towards Cole I didn't like because he just seemed jealous from all the flashbacks but at least he respected him enough to team up. Cole was kind of a know it all but he was pretty smart and tried to do the right thing and it shows from his cases except for the cheating.

 

Another thing he gets blamed for is like what was he supposed to do that night while getting mortar shelled by the enemy all by himself? He's not a gta protagonist. L.A. Noire is more realistic in that aspect.

Dimitri kind of did that a few times when he sent that picture of Roman tied up and Niko responds "You've crossed the line Dmitri!" along with a few texts.

 

Ray Bulgarin would call Luis a few times threatening to kill him and Gay Tony.

Yes. Micah was a pure evil munipulating bastard and shows absolutely no remorse for any of his actions. I hated everytime I had to do a mission with him.

I'd say not as although he's despicable he is witty and comes out with some amusing one liners. There's quite a few unlikeable Rockstar characters who don't even have the redeeming features of being funny or at all intelligent that I find more unlikeable overall. He might be the best "love to hate" character but there's others who beat him in the just plain dislikable category (Mori Kibbutz for example).

You can like characters for what they are without them being good people or kissing your ass in every second. Micah, in essence, is a necessary archetype in the gang, but he needed to be more like a rival than a traitor.

 

This is really the only reason I don’t like Micah. He’s just made to be someone for everyone to hate, so his toxicity feels artificial, and it’s a shame, because his actor put a lot of effort into his performance, and I’d argue more so than John’s. Dutch doing an evil act made an impression, but anything Micah does? You’ll just roll your eyes because “typical Micah”.

 

It would have been nice if the ending and Micah’s personality changed, so that he’s also in the dark about who ratted the gang out to the Pinkertons, but he instead does whatever it takes to survive, be it through brutal methods or losing “dead weights” by kicking them out of the gang.

 

In fact, Dutch should’ve been the rat, it’s obvious that his ego and selfishness get the best of him during tough times, and John in the end confronts him before understanding Charles’ protests about Arthur’s disdain for revenge.

I like the fact that he actually does carry his own weight. He's not as much as a spineless coward like Dimitri Rascalov nor is he always a chaotic liability like Trevor.

He stays loyal to the gang for most part, will fight along with other members and does rushes to front-lines to kill because he simply enjoys the pleasure in killing people like you would expect from an outlaw. And while he is not the most loyal of all people, I can't really blame people for not committing to someone like Dutch all the way. 

He does feel forced as an antagonist and personally I wished Rockstar did a twist on his personality in the end rather then playing it straight. You know, not waste him like they did with Ryder. Yeah I think that's a good comparison for him, he is just another Ryder. A like-able asshole that could have been an unlikely comrade in your toughest hour but got turned into a cliche instead.

I wanted to slap the piss out of him when Arthur finds the boys in Guarma and while Dutch, Bill and Javier are so happy to see Arthur this prick just giggles and laughs manically throughout the whole scene.
