Are obviously not in this game in any capacity....or are they?
I had the thought that Trevor, Michael, and Franklin are all evolved from the basic concepts of the PS2 characters.
Trevor is a psychotic ex-convict, just like Claude.
Michael is a ex-criminal finding his way back into the life of crime, just like Tommy.
Franklin is a street gangster who is trying to get out of the hood and tapping into his potential, just like CJ.
Is it too far fetched to think that GTA V's main characters are spiritual successors to the characters from the PS2 generation, or are they just coincidences?
I feel that this game will satisfy both the people that pine for the old game characters and those that want new canon for the franchise by expanding upon the subtext of GTA3, VC, and SA. Thoughts?
