GTA V has multiple Protagonists.

#2 Posted by Venatio (4491 posts) -

Really? One of them should've been a woman

#3 Posted by RecSpec (3827 posts) -

Worked well for RE6.

Only one polo shirt? Unacceptable.

Why? So you can feel like you have to protect her? You sexist pig.

If Rockstar makes it Claude, Tommy and CJ, I will buy this game day 1. Not a fan of the series.

I don't think any woman actually works at rockstar

If you're not a fan of the series why would you want to play as the old characters?

And why were people expecting a female protagonist? Why mind is being boggled.

Can't wait for another california GTA, playing through GTAIV right now makes me want a bigger map with the same engine.

huh? why would you buy it then?

#11 Posted by ModernAlkemie (364 posts) -

Seeing this makes me want to go boot up Saints Row the Third again.

@PeasantAbuse: Because it would be a ballsy decision. And I played through 3 and half of Vice City. Nothing new they do can bring me in.
#13 Edited by Eidderf (507 posts) -

@RecSpec:Sounds like it would be more like playing it safe if they just used characters fans already knew since they could count on fans of the old games coming back in that scenario, it's more ballsy for them to have three unknown protagonists.

I'm not sure why multiple protagonists is exciting...

#15 Edited by Chaser324 (6585 posts) -

Has the multiple protagonists thing actually been confirmed, or are you just making assumptions based on the cover art?

So they can only do old things?

Like use old characters... from the games you played... that didn't sell you on the series.

Um.

#19 Posted by laserbolts (5323 posts) -

Already a thread for this but I guess the title will bring more discussion here. Have they confirmed multiple protagonists?

#20 Posted by RecSpec (3827 posts) -
@GetEveryone: Basically, I want "Pedestrians Riot" and "Pedestrians Have Weapons" cheat codes.  
Not saying the game should have that, any game that caters to the majority is foolish. I just liked breaking the PS2 versions.
#21 Posted by Chaser324 (6585 posts) -

@laserbolts: Yes. I was confused about that too. OP should've included the source link:

I thought it was confirmed that this wasn't nearly as big as San Andreas was? San Andreas was a whole fucking state.

Hope they're not as bland as they look.

@Zippedbinders: Well, the digital issue of Game Informer is hitting in a few hours, so I'm sure there will be a deluge of info soon after that.

I just think it would've been an interesting and new perspective, GTA has never had a female lead. I'm not saying I won't play the game because of this, it's still one of my most wanted games but It's a missed oppurtunity

You can tell he's not a fan because very few fans like CJ. Such a bad character.
#28 Posted by Bucketdeth (8012 posts) -

If this game has Tommy, I'm in. Not sure I like the idea of 3 different main characters but I think Rockstar can pull it off, they are Rockstar after all.

Well, for starters, it's at least something different from what they've done before.

idk ... "They are rockstar" only means to me they can make good sandbox games with a decent story that contradicts itself on every corner with stupid protagonists. I'm with the GB crew on this one. Marston in RDR was the first protaginist they made I understood.

#32 Posted by Solh0und (1779 posts) -

Well let's hope each protagonist's stories are fleshed out and not major rush jobs.

i know several woman who work for rockstar in lincoln (UK) where they do QA.

If it is the three characters from the GTA III series, I will literally eat my... something. You guys can decide.

It would be interesting for sure. They would have to change a lot of the GTA fundamentals. I feel like if a female protagonist is ever included, everyone would just make a big deal about it. Like in reality whenever someone says, "This person is the first female or minority to accomplish X". It always puts me off, I feel like to achieve equality we need to stop making a big deal out of those sort of events.

#36 Posted by MikkaQ (10294 posts) -

My gut reaction is that it's a terrible idea and none of the characters will have the level of development I've come to appreciate from Rockstar protagonists.

Right, but I think the map itself is bigger than San Andreas (which was large, but the cities themselves kinda small).

Except for LA Noire (which is a totally different style of game, but character development is never done through gameplay.) Is that all it takes, anyway? Sure, it's a change, but not necessarily an exciting one. I mean, rarely do I find myself thinking "you know what, this is great, but I wish my character's model looked slightly different for awhile." I think it depends on how the story is presented. I think if it's three deeply intertwined stories that all lead up to a single conclusion, it could be great, but if it's just three mostly separate stories... well, I'd rather have one long fully fleshed-out story than 3 shorter ones that happen to take place in the GTA world.

#39 Posted by CaLe (3994 posts) -

It's great to see them go for something like this. If it works I expect a lot more games to imitate it in future.

I'm not sure about the general consensus, but I've always felt that the GTA games dragged on for far too long without the protagonists developing in any interesting way, so by creating three shorter, interweaving stories, hopefully the characters will develop more quickly and also have more meaningful interaction with the other protagonists, while keeping the pace quicker than it has been in the past (story-wise).

#41 Posted by Green_Incarnate (1788 posts) -

I guess it's not all that different from the GTA IV DLC, except that's the game now.

#42 Posted by iam3green (14390 posts) -

well i hope they do something good with that. it will be weird to have three protagonist.

What is the obsession with wanting to play as a female protagonist in GTA?

CALLED THIS DURING THE REVEAL TRAILER BITCH

I'm happy, can't wait for GTAV.

That would be exactly the opposite of ballsy.

I don't know anything about these three characters but I can tell I already don't care about them, just more of the same.

Wow, those three dudes could very well be the guys from 3, VC, and SA. Dude on the left looks like an over the hill, run down man in his fifties, which could very well be Tommy. The guys in the center and right look like the're in their mid to late thirties, with the one on the right maybe pushing forty. Those add up with CJ and Claude.

Rockstar, this has potential to be the greatest thing you have ever done.

GTA4 is a completely separate universe and timeline. Why is everyone assuming that these are going to be the protagonists of the GTA3 trilogy?
