What do you think of Frank Tenpenny/Eddie Pulaski ?

Recommended Posts

Frank Tenpenny

The 3rd best antagonist in this series for me

he was just the antagonist this series needed

he was an a**hole, I was satisfied with his death

Hope we see an antagonist like him in GTA 6...

Eddie Pulaski 

Just like Tenpenny, Pulaski is an a**hole, but his death wasn't satistfying

his death needed to be more brutal and enjoyable

how about you guys ?

what do you think of Tenpenny and Pulaski ?

i dont really care for them. i see so many people say that tenpenny is the best gta antagonist. but i dont think so. you also dont even get the satisfaction of killing him. although i do think he had a great actor. i just dont really care for the character.

They just pop out every now and then just to sh*t on carl.

not really the type of characters that will stay on my mind, they did nothing memorable.

They're my favorite antagonists nothing fits the antagonist role in a 90s la game than a corrupt cop imo.

I wholeheartedly agree, they couldn't have picked a better antagonist for a game where the end is basically the recreation of the Rodney King riots. I think they are good, nothing too outstanding with Pulaski but as for Tenpenny he did good, Samuel L. Jackson really nailed it. It would be interesting to see whether Tenpenny really would have killed Eddie like Carl said.

I think tenpenny would turn on Eddie to clear up loose ends

Great antagonists, fight it out with Billy Grey and Brian Jeremy as the best antagonists imo. 

 

Tenpenny and Pulaski seemed like an almost omnipresent force in Carl's life, it's like they always had an eye on him and whenever CJ seemed to be getting somewhere in his pursuits, Tenpenny and Pulaski would arrive to bully him and put him in place. Found that hateful af. Especially since it got really personal after the Green Sabre, you wanted nothing more than to cap their ass but you had to bide your time and suffer their insults for the right moment. That made the moment when you could take them out satisfying, unpopular opinion but I find Tenpennys death well done, CJ personally killing him may have been more satisfying but I like what we got, Tenpenny couldn't even get an honorable death and died like a dog, felt satisfying to me(even though I admit I did feel slightly bad too). What I'm trying to say is you know an antagonist is well done when you find their demise satisfying as anything. 

 

Tenpenny felt like this dominating force in LS, playing all the gangs and CJ like a puppet master. It was fun to see him slowly lose control and descend into desperation as events went out of LS, and then when we came back to LS to see the whole city turn on him felt cool af, and it didn't feel artificial, like Tenpennys villainy felt worthy of such outrage. And as I said, I liked how his demise was done. Had some of the coolest lines in the series though, 'Intimidate those who intimidate others Carl, thats my job', 'We could sh*t on you from such a height you'd think God himself crapped on you'. 

 

In some ways I felt Pulaski was even more hateable. Dude was a proper douchebag, had a punchable face and in general his demeanour tended to make you hate him. Everyone talks about Sam Jackson but Chris Penn did a fantastic job too, Pulaski even near his death refused CJ's sympathy and kept taunting him, really felt good to stomp that pos' face.

Pulaski feels like a random and insipid character. His ending in High noon is as poorly made as him.

 

Tenpenny is one of the most irritating video game characters I know but he's very well dubbed with some memorable quotes and a great presence throughout the game.

Chris Penn did a good job voice acting, r. I. P. 

 

Tenpenny is definitely overrated and all in all the antagonists were kinda underwhelming. 

 

In the beginning there was so much potential, them dirty cops, Ballas and opposing gangs, traitors in your gang, the Mafia, Salvatore Leone, nameless mob guys etc

 

But their deaths were so sh*tty. 

Only one I had a little entertainment with was chasing Pulaski but the rest, T Bone Mendez, Ryder, Tenpenny, that was bullsh*t. 

 

I didn't see Tenpenny as a threat at all compared to the people CJ dealt with over the whole game. 

Hell, he took out countless soldiers, secret agents and all. 

One dirty cop framing him for murder was the problem? 

Big smoke was wack too. 

 

The game itself was fun and I loved it but later antagonists were real antagonists, Dimitri Rascalov, Ray Boccino, Bulgarien, Timur, Billy Grey.

Tenpenny could be based on a real corrupt LAPD Officer Rafael Perez who was the center of attention of the Rampart C.R.A.S.H. scandal. Another member of the rampart scandal, David Mack, looks similar to Tenpenny.

 

from the wiki. I checked out David Mack and the similarity... is hard to overlook

Tenpenny: arguably the best antagonist in the series. Unlike most of the other antagonists in the series who take a back seat and confront you at the end, Tenpenny is an ever present threat constantly harassing CJ and putting his life in danger, yet there's nothing at all that you can do about it because he has you under his thumb. He can frame you for the murder of Office Pendelbury if you don't do his dirty work, and then you have him keeping you away from Smoke because of Sweet's safety at risk. He's an antagonist with genuine power of the protagonist, and only when you're no longer at his mercy can you finally confront him. He's a diabolical individual who seeks only to advance his own needs under the guise of a greater good. Samuel L. Jackson nailed his voice work too.

 

Pulaski: not as good as Tenpenny since his defining characteristic is basically being his lapdog. Having said that, he's still a horrible individual. I can imagine him being the sort to spit on a homeless person and burn a hundred dollar bill right in their faces. He's the kind who likes to taunt CJ and make him very angry, but ultimately, he doesn't stand out very much in terms of motivations. He's got some personality, but his whole character feels incomplete. I think he'd have been better if he had some scheming ideas where he planned to secretly overthrow Tenpenny and become leader of C.R.A.S.H., but even so, he's still a better antagonist than Jerry Martiniez and Massimo Torini.

Tenpenny wasn't a really favorite antagonist of mine. There's a difference between being a constant threat and popping out all the time just to bully the player. CJ doesn't even kill him personally. I really regret that he never tried confronting him and calling him out with anger. Vic in VCS handled Martinez as his antagonist better, with HIM being the threat around Martinez all the time.

Tenpenny is the best antagonist for me. Very intelligent and psychopathic.

 

Pulaski is Tenpenny's lap dog. He was just weak, stupid and and physically tough enough to be mainpulated to do anything Tenpenny wants him to do.

ENGLISH MOTHERf*ckER DO YOU SPEAK IT?!?! -What Tenpenny should've said in the game. 

 

Pulaski is just a shortie who commands to Tenpenny, like Mike Pence and DJT.
