Big Bear could have been the perfect protagonist for GTA San Andreas Stories

Recommended Posts

Jaxzer

 

So ... there are a lot of theories of who could have been the protagonist for San Andreas Stories who would obviously focus more on Los Santos, in my opinion Big Bear, that stoned grove member could have been a great protagonist, here's why: Bear is the first person CJ and Ryder think to help them stop the drug dealers on grove street. We only see Big Bear drugged, so we don't know its true potential. CJ says that with Bear by his side, the ballas would have no chance, if Bear was that badass then surely he would make a good protagonist.

 

What you guys think

For me, Bryan Johson, Although it should be some stage in history where Bryan is alive

Considering that Brian was a child when he was killed (he's the youngest of the Johnson children), him being the protagonist is definitely out of the question.

Have been a huge Ryder fan, would love to play through his rise as one of the OGs when GSFs were last strong. As for Bear, he is OK but was never a fanof his character model. Even B DUP has a cooler design.

Not without a totally different story.

Big Bear is a Junkie, fully involved. There is nothing about him to make a story of.

Just throwing minor characters against the wall, to see if they stick?

Why not Little Weasel, (No,  I had my moniker years before the game).

 

The Producer, Director, Writer, and other on the team chose this story for this game.

Remember, a Skunk by any other name (polecat) still smells the same.

 

I think people are too free in thinking that just changing names, is going to make a decent game story.

I am from the days when we played a game. we did not need a "backstory", we took what we got and enjoyed it.

Yes, 
you can make a story for Big Bear, there's nothing information about him unless he is a dope and feared as a member of the grove in the past. That's exactly what they do with the protagonists of the stories, we had no idea that Lance Vance's brother was a badass guy, nor that Toni Cipriani wasn't always fat.

Just so all the fun and whimsy isn't completely sucked out of this topic, I'll throw my hat in and say Big Bear would be a good protagonist. Unlike other minor characters suggested, Big Bear is somewhat of a legend. He's name-dropped several times and has quite the reputation. His last appearance, a moment of defiance, teases us with what's coming. Just why is Big Bear so revered? What did he do for the Grove that made him such a talking point, both early on and in the third act of the game? I would like to know.

Which is exactly WHY we consider making them the protagonist. Isn't that the point of main characters – to expand their personality and background to learn more about them?

You mean like Vic Vance in VCS?

Not at all. Most people seem to believe that certain characters might be interesting if we knew a bit more about them and give them interesting traits.

Yeah – when it came to games that didn't have an actual f*cking story! Look, I'm not saying that all characters need a backstory, as a main character's minor history is enough to know about their past to give them a reason for their current personality, but there are characters who we feel had wasted potential, and Big Bear was one of those characters.

 

Honestly, you really need to stop being so f*cking pedantic! It's getting annoying!

I'm going to do two stories for gta san andreas's mod dyom, one of them will be from Los Santos and you can bet Big Bear will be the protagonist of my story.

He would have most likely been portrayed as a high ranking OG and ruthless gangster from the Grove. Way before the events of 1992 and probably seen as a second leader with smart attributes and not a reckelss mind like Ryder before the crack came in with Bear. When CJ and Ryder mentions in Cleaning of the hood Ryder: "Yeah he's good to have on our side"  CJ: Big Bear?! Yeah those base slangers gonna be sorry hinting that he was a trusted member and would be the one homeboy to turn to if sh*t hit the fan out on the sets. (Besides Sweet) While seen as ruthless member that was most likely Imitating as hell. R* could have brought another grate character but just chose him as a stereotype old trusted homie from the hood that was down with it but turned base head. Once Bear gets cleaned R* obviously chose to ingore him as it would be the last  encounter with Bear once he gets off to rehab. Another reason why some peeps wanted a SA story expansion but we all knew from the start R* weren't going to bother, :turn:

 

As for OP's question. Would Bear make a good protagonist for a SA's stories. Yeah, for sure. Just as long he's written well. Which would have made a grate choice for like a 2006 or a 2008 game back then, lol.

Big Bear is just a minor character added for the immersion with as much charism than Claude Speed, that's to say none.

 

Since he's fictional he would probably make a great main character in a game but if there was a San Andreas Stories my choice would go without any hesitation for Ryder.

Mr. Galloway

I always thought of Cesar as being a good protagonist for San Andreas Stories.
