Why I really hate Trevor Phillips

Nope I've never played vice city.. but it doesn't take an expert to know Tommy isn't a superior version of Trevor..he's his own entity entirely.  That TLAD fanboy was trying to make it sound like they tried to base Trevor's likeness off Tommy which is ludicrous..

 

And yet, everyone knows Tommy is loosely based on scarface... Same way Niko is loosely based on Sasha.. not saying he's an exact ripoff.. they wear different colour shirts after all... I was just using colourful language as a way to gauge a reaction.. sure worked didn't it.. but there is definitely an inspiration there.. whether or not Tommy is inferior to scarface is up to interpretation..

I think he is.. for one reason and one reason only.. scarface is an iconic movie character who's played by a real life actor on the big screen. He has some of the most quoteble lines in cinema..Al Pacino FFS.. Tommy's a cartoon character in comparison.. he's not even rendered in HD.. I know ray Liotta is suppose to be good too but he's definitely no Al Pacino.. Tommy is probably ahead of his time.. but it's foolish to say he's a better character than Tony Montana.. Movie writing is far superior.

Much like Algonquin Assassin, I don’t dislike Trevor quite as much as I used to. Yes, he’s still my least favorite protagonist (excluding the ones from 1, 2, Advance, and Online) and he’s actually quite polarizing. It seems as if most players either really love or hate him. I can kinda see why that’s the case with him. In some ways, it makes him unique as all the other GTA protagonists can be liked, disliked, or players can just be neutral with them. In some ways, he feels more in line with being a Manhunt protagonist. A lot of gamers appreciate his loyalty towards Michael. Personally, I overall prefer the more disloyal GTA protagonists, especially because it’s fun to watch them go from working for one person to the next. Also because well, it’s an organized crime game after all. I don’t really think it’s always necessary to go over the top with characters being loyal, considering they’re all rather amoral people to begin with. I think loyal protagonists overall fit games such as the Call of Duty franchise, Max Payne franchise, and L.A. Noire better. That’s just me though.

 

I also wanted to add my two cents in that a lot of Trevor haters and fans are often opposite sides of the same coin in many ways (no pun intended). I honestly find it a little odd seeing a GTA V fan hate Trevor but who am I to judge by those standards? What I’m more willing to judge is (from what I’ve seen in a lot of his other posts, including this one) the fact that the user was born and raised in the United States, claims to be 20 years old, and literally types like a one year foreign exchange student from some obscure country. I really wonder what his excuse is.

Moreover it’s ridiculous how he thinks the only thing that makes Tommy and Tony different is the colour of Tommy’s shirt LMAO.

 

Talk about scraping at the bottom of the barrel.

There's plenty of things that make them different. You guys were scraping the bottom of the barrell in regards to Trevor so I thought I would too. Don't know why you are taking such offense to the scarface comparison.. if anything it's a compliment..

He's not though.

 

Since when was Tommy an immigrant from Cuba who works as a dishwasher? When does Tommy bang a drug lords wife, has a weird obsession over his sister, and makes enemies with a drug lord from a different country?

 

Tommy also isn't addicted to Cocaine like Tony.

Again... Loosely based doesn't mean exact replica.. all protagonists have some sort of inspiration.. certain key aspects taken from outside sources to help craft the character they have in mind.. in Tommy's case, I'm going to say they took scarfaces theme, not really his likeness or his background.. the whole drug lord Psycho sh*tick.. and made it their own..

Cuban immigration was a big theme of Scarface.

Ok you don’t have to like Tommy, but I guess you’re not familiar with any of Ray Liotta’s work then?
 

I’m not going to get into a debate whether he’s better than Al Pacino, but Ray Liotta is pretty iconic and I guarantee more people were aware of Ray Liotta before Vice City than Steve Ogg before GTA V. For most people Ray Liotta is what makes Tommy a compelling character.

 

He is definitely not some cartoon character.

 

That's because Rockstar has long stopped hiring well known actors in their games.. it's not a question of which actor has more talent..

 

he may as well be a cartoon. Not too many non gamers would appreciate his story or take it seriously because of the format.. couldn't say the same for Scarface.. it's a different kind of art form..

I think you're gonna want to watch Scarface again and play Vice City.

 

All of your arguments are a joke.

Oh man, imagine comparing Scarface to the story of some lousy Grand Theft Auto V dude.

I mean basically. It’s pretty apparent that you just flat out don’t know what you’re talking about.

At this point, this topic isn't even about Trevor Philips anymore.


It's a mess........just like Trevor's character 656135804678045718.png.
