So what do you think of the romances in the GTA series?

Recommended Posts

Samz707

A bit of an odd one, I know, but I was thinking about how Rockstar keep fumbling this up.

 

GTA VC: Mercedes is practically a non-character, she for some reason comes onto Tommy literally right after leaving the party and is perfectly okay screwing Love Fist, I forget she's A: In the game and B: Supposdly a love interest, there's dialogue in the files implying some sort of early dating system was present for her so i'm not sure if it's due to cut content or Rockstar being lazy.

 

GTA SA: Haven't done any dating myself yet, but the cutscenes for dating look a little comical in how basic they are, it's like suddenly the game's entire budget vanishe and the dialogue for getting closer is....well, they are something I'd expect out of a mod written by a 13 year old, they're cringy.

 

GTA VCS: Louise is basically the only some-what love interest that feels like Rockstar actually had a writer, She and Vic feel like actual people in their interactions and she actually DOES things with the protagonist that aren't generic cookie-cutter stuff. (Racing with Quad-bikes or beating up Marty's Trailer Trash to get her and her daughters belongings.), she does vanish for a good chunk of the game though, but I wanted to do more with her since beating up trailer Mafia and riding Quad bikes appeals more to me than going bowling, even if her baby wouldn't look out of place in American Sniper.

 

GTA 4: Okay, I never dated anyone but I think Kate once or twice, but the real silly thing is when you don't date Kate, she talks about how it's weird that she and Niko are coming together...but then they seemingly out of the blue hook up later in the exact same car conversation, Kate and Niko don't really interact that much outside of dating so it comes out of nowhere.

 

As for that girl at the start of the game, I forgot her name, I think her fake-name was Michelle? or was that her real one?, never really cared for her and Kinda only some-what remembered her when her betrayal happens, Niko cared alot more than me.

I've only ever really enjoyed dating Kate and Michelle because they're the only two characters that feel like they have any depth and impact in any sort of way. I've always disliked the girlfriends in San Andreas because they're boring and converse like they're robots. Didn't care for Mercedes, but was she really a love interest persay? She came off as being flirty granted, but not someone I could see Tommy being in a relationship with.

 

Louise was ok, but the lack of a dating system in VCS kinda made it feel a bit pointless.

The only time where it's worked in GTA is IV for me. It's got real depth to it and you get to know the girls you're dating and you've got a choice.

Hmmm nice bike

Personally, I don't think I've been a fan of any of the romances in any of the games. At least GTA SA and IV had some point to it, because besides Kate, each girlfriend would unlock some sort of outfit or ability that you otherwise wouldn't normally be able to get. Otherwise, the entire girlfriend system is basically just there as something else for the player to do besides the usual missions and causing mayhem.

 

Thanks for reminding me about the thing with Mercedes and Tommy, as well. Unless Tommy was just a huge pervert, then it made no sense how they set her up as an apparent love interest until he just pimps her out to Love Fist and gets her to star in a porn movie. I think the cut phone calls definitely indicate that she was going to have a bigger role as a girlfriend of Tommy's before this was eventually scrapped, and whatever early missions appeared set up the whole romance are clearly just remnants of when they had the girlfriend role for her in mind.

Similarly to Miamivicecity, the only women in GTA who I enjoyed dating were Kate and Michelle in IV. This may be an unpopular opinion, but the only woman in SA who I liked at all was Catalina. Miamivicecity doesn’t like her, but oh well, just because we have the same opinions on most stuff doesn’t mean we have to have the same opinions on everything when it comes to these games. I can always point this out to anyone who thinks the two of us are practically clones. However, back on topic, I still don’t like Catalina NEAR as much as Michelle and Kate. The thing I love about Michelle and Kate is that they’re basically the only normal ones in the game, if not the whole series, lol. You’d kinda have to know nothing about the games in order to think Catalina is ANYTHING like Kate or Michelle. I’ve always just kinda liked the “sexy and dangerous” type of Mediterranean, Eastern European, or Latina women!

Maria was fun, met through a mission and was throughout the story in missions until the end. That and in IV with Kate and Roman and Niko and ''Michelle.'' I found Brucie romantic as well.

Yes, her real name is Karen. Eventually she betrays Niko I think.

Personally I think R* always fails in this aspect. I came close to liking Kate and that's the closest it has ever gotten but it's still awful. 

 

Not only that but we barely had even good female characters in the series let alone Girlfriends. I think they need to step up their writing in the next game. I would love to have a supportive badass Girlfriend like Mona Sax for one of the protagonists in the next game. I wouldn't mind if they only give you ONE option for a girlfriend as long as she's good and plays a major role in the story.

I think IV was the best when it came to dating. All of them were interesting and unique my favorites were Michelle/Karen and Alex yes I liked Alex lol I never really liked Kate at all.

 

If they introduce a love interest again I want them to do something like Heat where Eady was innocent and didn't know anything about Neil McCauleys criminal activities until the end. It would be a nice twist on things imo.

Would prefer if it didn't exist, honestly. Never cared for it and doubt I ever will unless they drastically improve upon it in future releases.
