Do you want a wheelchair bound protagonist?

Will it be great if GTA 6 protagonist is a middle age man like Michael but wheelchair bound. Well, he still can be a criminal kingpin but usually get around with wheelchair. Alternatively, he can also walk around with clutches and gets into cars....

I think that would slow down the game play way too much. No shootouts either with a guy like that.

That sounds too limited to my liking, but I do remember back when 4 was the newest entry in the series, I wanted the next GTA to have wheelchairs available as an optional vehicle.

 

Hijack them from the sidewalk (don't worry, those paralyzed peds are just NPC's that probably will despawn once you round the next corner) and use them to participate in daring downhill races.

Sure, why not? We've never had a handicapped protagonist before. An obese and disabled MC would be something new and fresh. If you disagree you are an ableist.

I really feel sad for handicapped people and wish them the best... but is this a joke?

That will be awesome if it is not "next gen" console exclusive content or collector's exclusive.

Having a protagonist who's disabled in any way is NEVER a good idea.👎

If the protagonist is anything like Johnny English and wheelchair bound, I'll take him. If not, it's straight no from my end.

 

Having a wheelchair bound player would be like having Lester sent to do all the jobs that Franklin, Trevor or Michael are supposed to do. Imagine having a guy of such age doing that. It would be a waste of time and seems like an impossible incident.

No, because then I likely won't be able to drive or probably yank someone out of a car that I like and being able to drive all the vehicles is a big selling point of GTA for me.

People are really narrow minded and unimaginative when it comes to prospective GTA protagonists huh. A protagonist with a disability, sure why not. We had Johnny with a bit of a limp and there's been other characters with disabilities. They have great writers at Rockstar so the possibilities for different protagonist traits should be wide ranging.

Would be awesome tho to have a former mobster in a wheelchair. Like Hector Salamanca. And he dont need a car, just put some rockets under his wheelchair. Or a jetpack. And a bell ofcourse

Not wanting to play as a disabled person doesnt mean your narrowminded , why the hell would i want to play as a guy in a wheelchair.

Imagine the amount of animation needed for a simple car jacking, assuming he can stop the car and pull the victim out he still needs to fold up his wheelchair, put it in the boot/trunk haul himself around the car back to the drivers door swing himself into the car, then try to operate the control's.

Like this?

 

 

With a good creative team you can make it work, but I don't think R* have the resources to do it. If there is a wheelchair bound protagonist the series will deteriorate even lower.

On its own no but any time any slightly outside the box idea for a protagonist is brought up it's met with extremely negative reactions and derision. Like people aren't just saying they don't like the idea, they're saying this is the stupidest thread on the forum. 

 

Why the hell would you want to play as a protagonist with any particular feature? They all have their strengths, weaknesses and quirks.

Look I think it would be great to have a top tier game that is centred around a disabled protagonist but that game should be built from scratch around that premise. It just does not suit GTA game mechanics. I personally hope the next protagonist is a bit more agile so he/she can do a bit of parkour over roof tops.

Your Idea could be a crime based open world game, Rockstar could even make it.

But it can not be a GTA game because of what people expect to be able to do in a GTA game, I suppose it could be in a side story DLC or something.

I do not think that this Idea was suggested as a joke (I admit I did check to see if the OP was dated April the 1st) but you must be able to understand why people think it might be?  it sounds like it was meant to be a nice well intentioned idea.

But I fear that it just would not work and be reconisable as a GTA game.

Sorry, but I have to disagree.

 

From a gameplay perspective this would be horrible and unnecessarily restrictive as many mechanics would become redundant or have to be heavily modified.

Only if the wheelchair can transition into a Jetpack at any given moment.
