What do you think of Vic Vance ?

Recommended Posts

Ahmedmfroezspeed

For me, he's just the black version of Toni Cipriani

But unlike Toni, Vic feels REAL remorse, and real guilt and real Empathy for his crimes,not like Toni who's pretending to feel it,

Vic's better than Franklin and WAY better than CJ who feels remorse .. likeall the time,

Vic has a higher rampage kill count than Toni where Vic killed from 649-660 kills on the PSP version, and from 700-720 kills on the PS2 version -shE*t the PS2 Vic is more sociopathic than the PSP Vic-

But Antonio had from 492-510 kills in his rampages

He's a bit sadistic, and what proves that is that one of his in-game quotes is "i don't really enjoy this, you know, well okay, I do"

Edit: He's a Sociopathic killer who only feels empathy for.the people he knows

Anyways Vic is my 5th most favorite protagonist in the series

For me I'd rate him 3/5 stars

How about you?

What do you think of Vic Vance ?

Let me know by replying

Lol. Vic is nowhere near Toni.
Vic was naive because he was a good guy trying to earn some money for his family, was new to the criminal underworld. He was dragged into it, then betrayed.
He realised that he got deep into crime. He knew that there is no turning back. He done everything to protect his family. He failed but he finished the job.
He is not psycho and braindead criminal like Toni following every fricking order.

This. He's about the only redeemable protagonist in the 3D era, people complain about him far too much. He was all against drugs and criminal stuff but he didn't see no way out. Whenever he voiced his complaints about it it was because he didn't want to take drugs himself, knowing how problematic it can get. Niko does that too and does that make him a hypocrite? He's no stranger to criminal stuff and can be ruthless and violent too, I actually really like how tough he can be and how determined he was to hunt down Martinez. He really did hate his guts. We need more protagonists who will stand up to the antagonist by calling him names and posing a threat to HIM throughout the game.

I'd rather not play as a whiner throughout the game. I wanna play as someone who embraces the criminal lifestyle and that's why Vic is one of my least favorite protagonists, second to Franklin.

It's a hard question to answer. I love Vice City, it's my greatest influence. If I'm totally in love with 80s, I have to thanks Rockstar. Vice City is perfect in every single aspect: soundtrack, atmosphere, references, storyline, characters, everything. If I had never played Vice City, my tastes in music, movies, cars, clothes (Hawaiian shirts in particular), and my style would have been totally different. Tommy Vercetti is a very badass guy, charismatic, and fits perfectly the game.
So, as I said before, Vice City is the perfect game for me, but there is something that makes Vice City Stories "special".
Of course it has a great soundtrack, a nice and colorful graphic, funny quotes, and new side-missions, but what makes it "special" is related to the storyline and its characters. 
Victor Vance is a very underrated protagonist. A lot of people don't like his personality. 
I like how he's "trying to be a good guy in a bad man's game" (just like Martinez says in the last mission). He got a difficult family, he got responsibilities, and he never forgets about that, because it's the most important thing for him. He is a strong man, but also a good guy. As seen in the game, often, bad situations happen to good people, and even if he is a responsible person with a moral, he gets in troubles because of his brother Lance, Martinez, and Vice City drug kingpins.
I also like the relationship that he builds with Louise, his kind words to try to comfort her during the days with Marty. Their last conversation is very emotional and touching. They have had "something special" but it ends in a drammatic way. This game has such a mature plot. I Want to Know What Love is by Foreigner fits totally the story.
Vic is also a handsome muscular man, and the style of his Army and Casual outfits is cool. 
In conclusion, he is a great inspiration for me, there is a lot of Vic Vance in me. That's is what makes this game a wonderful and an underrated gem!

Well, just like a lot of other people in this thread have said, he's mostly a good guy.

He's the only GTA protagonist who is genuinely a good person.

Vic was a decent character who definitely needed some improvements. I mean I don't mind him not wanting anything to do with drugs, but they could've simply came up with a better way to have him build drug empires without him being a hypocrite. Such as make it in a way that he needs to build a drug empire in orders of the Mendez brothers so that he could save his and Lance's skin (since the trouble they were in was all Lance's fault). Overall, Vic was a decent character, but I felt he could've been slightly better.

A man trying to make an honest living. He enlists in the military only to be double crossed and gets dragged in a life a crime. Somewhere between 1984-1986, he's in too deep. But deep down, he wants out.

With all that's been said in this thread I feel a bit like he's the prototype for Nico. 

Serious actually well meaning guy who gets dragged into the whole crime scene and can also be seen as a victim. 

There is a certain Charme in this kind of archetype although it speaks a bit against the GTA formula. 

Tommy is the clear opposite but also a lot of fun to play but Vic wins in my book because he can swim ;)
