Because it is incredibly obvious that Rockstar intended for that to be the true ending of GTA V. Just consider how badly written the other two are. Why would Franklin kill Michael just because Weston told him to despite him being screwed over by him? Why would Franklin kill Trevor even though he had no personal vendetta against him? Also consider that the only gold requirements for the other two endings are to just complete them. The Third Way needed several requirements like you would expect from a mission that was planned out in detail and not just shoe-horned in for the sake of multiple endings. 

 

Not to mention that there is no rewards for picking the other two endings. Everyone hates you and you have nobody by your side, you get an unsatisfactory tie up of loose ends, and you don't kill a single one of the so-called antagonists in the game. Imagine if in San Andreas you could choose to kill Sweet so you aren't held back anymore by the hood and just leave Big Smoke to run his crack empire despite betraying you, and also allowing Tenpenny to just run off and avoid justice for his crimes and all of the stuff he's done. Imagine if at the end of Vice City you would let Sonny and Lance just take your business. Imagine if at the end of GTA III you abandoned your ultimate quest for revenge and let Catalina run away despite her willingness to kill you anyway.

 

The point is that Ending C is considered the best because it fits more with what GTA has done and what the series is generally all about, and it is also the only ending that has been properly written into the story with any proper build-up put into it. The other two endings are just put in there to add multiple endings to be on par with GTA IV's multiple endings. Granted I didn't like it there, but at least they made sense in that game and were more balanced. But GTA V did such a bad job at multiple endings that they could've just removed the other two and left it at that.

Ending A- Realistic(But V isn't actually a Realistic game tbh so...) 

Ending B- Absolutely Anti Climatic

Ending C- Typical Happy Ending(Fits V's tone)

A and B are "better" in the sense that they actually involve some sacrifice and emotion and are a rare moment in the game that is serious and might make you feel something. But they leave so many loose ends that they're obviously not supposed to be canon. C is a dumb cop out fantasy fairytale ending but is "better" in that it ties up the loose ends and allows you to keep all three characters, it's the happy ending and clearly the canon ending so it's going to be seen as the best. Also from a gameplay standpoint C gives you lots of action while A and B are more just seeing what happens.

 

I enjoy doing A and B and seeing the consequences of those choices afterwards (eg when you kill Michael and the whole time you're being told you've made the wrong choice just to rub it in lol, Jimmy calling you crying, seeing the empty safehouses, the surviving characters blaming each other and your contacts abandoning you etc). It's a dark and intense end to a game that tried to have a balance between serious and fun and needed more of the serious so I feel it makes for a better balance overall. I wish they'd gone hard with it and option C had resulted in Franklin being killed (I guess they chickened out). But I totally see why people like the existing C ending more and tbh with it feeling more canon that's what I'd always pick for a "main"/100% save.

It's relative. Most people tend to choose C as it's the ultimate happy ending. People love happy endings!

I think the main problem with Ending C is that it doesn't resolve the central tension of the whole game - the relationship between Michael & Trevor.

After it, Trevor is still is psychopathic loose cannon with a thirst for carnage who's going to continue to plague Michael and bring trouble to his door; Michael is still the rat who betrayed Trevor to the feds and tried to have him killed (and did get Brad killed).

At best, they're in a state of ceasefire.....but it's impossible to imagine that their relationship doesn't blow up again in the future because Trevor's a hothead, who won't leave Michael alone.

 

In many ways, I think Ending A makes the most sense - Michael knows that, even after everything, Trevor is still a liability and a danger to him and his family. And Franklin is likely smart enough to see the truth in that as well.

But they wrote that version in such a half-arsed manner, without resolving any of the other threads of the story, that it's impossible to assume that it's the canon ending.

 

Meanwhile Ending B is both half-arsed and makes no thematic sense at all for Franklin to kill his mentor, just because a rich arsehole asked him to.

tbh I think all three endings to GTA V are half arsed. I agree though with the OP though that ending C being “one of the best endings to a video game ever” would definitely be a big and long stretch. I don’t have a problem with it THAT Johnny, Clay, and Terry died. I only had a problem with it that they all died in a completely half arsed way. I honestly think that if Johnny was a final boss in ending C alongside Steve Haines and Devin Weston, of course, with the addition of Stretch and Wei Cheng also having a much bigger role and becoming final antagonists, then I could picture ending C working out just perfectly!

 

Also, I could see how many people think ending A is canon. Trevor was a true menace to Michael and his family. However, it was too sloppily written. If it was better written, it could’ve easily worked out just perfectly much like ending C!

 

Last but not least, even though I do like Michael, almost as much as I like Johnny Klebitz, I personally think he had potential to be a great final antagonist (but only in this ending of course) much like Johnny K. However, the reason it flopped is because it was just too anticlimactic. If these three endings were better written, I’m sure it would’ve really stumped most gamers on what really happened, but unfortunately, that wasn’t the route R* took so that didn’t happen.. -_-

A - Dramatic Ending
B - Tragic Ending
C - Comedic Ending

I think a lot of  people tend to favor C because all of the protagonists live in the end and people feel the other ending were anti-climatic. Thing is GTA5 is the first game in the series where the roles were reverse and you play as the antagonists and the antagonists were actually the protagonists. A lot of people tend to approach the ending as a matter of choosing which character was the most corrupt, when they should be approaching it as choosing which character is the least corrupt.

The writing of all of the endings were bad, but the general reasoning behind the logic of them make sense because the game is filled with a lot of grey which is unlike before in the series where it was made clear in older titles that you were playing as the protagonist and not as the antagonist.

Franklin isn't an antagonist IMO. He is the typical GTA protagonist. Trevor and Michael though? Yeah. They are. Especially Trevor.

BECAUSE....

1) It's Canon ending as can be seen by artwork

2) It's more realistic and fits with the theme of GTA V 

3) Option A and B both are illogical and very anti climatic 

Only people who pick option A ending are butthurt GTA 4 fans because Trevor killed Johnny Klebitz

It's also better in terms of gameplay.

 

A and B are simply car chases (though some of the better in the game) and a scripted end, quite poor for a final mission.

 

C features a massive shootout and then various assassinations in quick time which reminded me a bit at the part of the game where you start playing Trevor, which was the best part of the game for me, the second part of the final mission felt a bit like that, don't understand why Steve had to gone, kinda liked the guy.

My only problem with the endings is Franklin making the decision. I do like though that in Option A if you wait long enough Michael Pulls the trigger and kills Trevor.

I do this everytime. Michael's speech makes much more sense and feels more natural.

What annoys me about option A is the way Trevor crashes into the tanker. You can take the same car and character and ram it at the same speed and angle outside of the mission and fuel never leaks like that. It feels way too scripted and unbalanced.

Option B feels a little less forced and more balance, as getting into a gun fight and losing half of your health and then falling off one of those smoke stacks could kill the player.

am i the only one who thinks option b is the best???????just remember that michael was the guy who made trevor sad by faking his death trevor thought michael was dead and micheal was his best friend he even had a tatoo saying rip michael you saw how mad he was when he learned michael was alive so michael was the one who deserved to die for what he did to trevor even if trevor is sad after the end of the game if you chose to kill michael and no trevor was not a menace to michael's family                                   

now that i am analyzing the story you can see that the story of the game is not stupid like some people think it is actually really serious but it's seriousness gets disguised with fun missions and  goofy elements

You’re not the only one who feels that way and your opinion is more than welcome just like every other opinion. I have seen some people on YouTube being total jerks to people who picked endings A and B. They have a right to their own opinion that C is the best ending, but there is NEVER an excuse for suppressing others’ opinions. I agree completely with you that people get a little more upset than they should be about Michael and Trevor’s deaths as well as Johnny’s. Unfortunately, all three of those characters’ deaths were results of poor writing skills. As I already had said, ending B could definitely work, just like the other two endings, had it been better written for the same reasons as you described about Michael.

you're right

but i think option a is the worst due to how ufair it is

like trevor was nothing but straight and true to franklin like he says before you kill him and franklin also gets help to kill trevor by who? the guy who made trevor sad and depressed by faking his death and it's probably the reason that trevor is such a psychopath

franklin is my second favorite character of the gta franchise but in option a he becomes an asshole and my third favorite character in gta fanchise is trevor

michael was definltly the worst protagonist in gaming history and beyond

The ending B doesn't feel right to me personally even if I account Michael's flaws as a character. IMO it defeats the purpose when Franklin in a way becomes the "new Michael" by betraying his partnership for a deal with a higher-up person. In hindsight, Trevor himself hates Franklin for his choice and cuts all contact.

if you meet trevor after taking out  michael a  text will appear saying "you are blind to see that i did the right think"and it is right even if trevor does not understand it franklin did the right think killing michael michael made trevor sad  by faking his death and it is probably the reason trevor is a psychopath and for that michael deserves to die

I think that's what makes ending B more powerful and meaningful. The fact that Franklin becomes just like Michael. There is a sense of irony in that way because Michael was mentoring Franklin to be just like him.

It's kind of a what-goes-around-comes-around thing when Franklin f*cks over his mentor just like Michael did to his mentor (Trevor).

My understanding is that Trevor was unhinged and an unpredictable sociopath even before the prologue. I think the risk involved with his presence was partially the reason why Michael betrayed him in the first place though I definitely believe Trevor's state of mind worsened after it.

Trevor was never Michael's mentor. Michael was the one that actually introduced Trevor to organized Robberies eventhough Trevor is older. Trevor wasn't that much of a criminal before meeting Michael. Though he still was unstable.

When Trevor and Wade travel to LS, Trevor says he joined the airforce because he wanted to drop the nuke, I guess Trevor has always been a psychopath.

I don't think he meant that he joined the airforce TO DROP THE NUKE. I think he said it as if it's gonna be one of his responsibilities as a pilot. Though yes. Trevor is a psychopath right from his early days due to his parental issues. The events that happen in his life only shove him deeper and deeper into madness.

is it that hard to understand that michael was the bad guy from the start?????sure trevor might have been a sociopath but it was michael's best friend  and michael  bertrayed him!!!!!!!!and it was not right and he bertrayed him with one of the worst ways possible:he faked his death and that my friends  made trevor  really sad and even more of a psychopath.

michael was the real antagonist all along!!!!!!!

Michael was an asshole and I see having Michael taste his own medicine in ending B as a kind of poetic justice. My main issue with the B ending is just that Franklin hardly holds any grudge for his mentor. Michael's family, as dysfunctional as it was, would also be worse off with his death and Franklin himself grew up without a father figure.

It's spelled out that he's still disloyal a few times in the game too. For example while escaping from the Big Score he's talking about pinning it all on Trevor if they get caught. And it's made crystal clear in both endings A and B who's loyal and who isn't, first of all Michael immediately says yes to helping kill Trevor (while in the other scenario Trevor is disgusted with the idea of killing Michael and wants nothing to do with it) and is quick to do it for Franklin if he hesitates. Or alternatively when Franklin's chasing him he tries to convince him they should both go and take Trevor out instead. He never changed and always remained a snake, while Trevor although obviously flawed in many ways does stick to a certain code of ethics.

I understand why Michael ditched Trevor. Putting myself at his position, if I had a family I would want to get away from a guy like Trevor as much as possible. The problem I have with this when it comes to V is how worthless Michael's family are. They aren't worthy of what Michael did. They suck big time.

You are all bringing up very good points in relation to Michael being the main antagonist of his own game. I can see where people are coming from when they say that Franklin is the only protagonist and we see the entirety of the game through his eyes. To be completely honest, Michael, Trevor, Steve, and Devin were ALL pretty much users of Franklin. Franklin is absolutely similar to other GTA protagonists like Niko Bellic, Johnny Klebitz, Luis Fernando Lopez, Claude, and CJ. They’re all basically whipping boys who are bound to be betrayed and forced to do dirty work for others. They all are constantly treated like dogs, cats, horses, or useful tools rather than actual friends. Michael and Trevor, on the other hand, are not quite the same story as they’re kinda the slavedrivers themselves, much like many other GTA main antagonists including Steve and Devin. With all of that being said, it is definitely a hallmark of the GTA series to see the oppressed take down their oppressors. Case in point with the deaths of Catalina, Frank Tenpenny, Dimitri Rascalov, Jimmy Pegorino, Billy Grey, Ray Bulgarin, Michael, Trevor, Steve, and Devin.
