Voted Franklin but it was more for Lamar than anything else.
I've felt that the GTAV protagonists are just the tropes of the previous protagonists divided up to 3 people. A ruthless loose cannon set on revenge, reluctant ex-crime pulled back in, and the friends, homies, and family striving for a "better life" through crime.i honestly think the GTA fan base is split down the line on gta forums. I notice that half people prefer mafia themed/aesthetic like GTA 4 with the Italian Mob, Russian Mob etc. and those that prefer the street gangster aesthetic like seen in San Andreas or Franklin's story
The problem with this is that alot of times many people's reasonings fall into traps of racism. I wonder if this has some truth in the split between those that like say Michael and those that like Franklin.
Pretty much my reasoning. Trevor was annoying and a visual nuisance, Michael's family got on my nerves, and Niko has got to be the most shitty, inconsistently written piece of shit character I've come across in a game this side of Anders around the end of Dragon Age 2.Franklin. He's got the funniest lines, is just kind of there, is really chill, and the straight man to everyone else's nonsense. I loved his whole "I'm fed up with this shit" attitude, and how he just wants to chill with his dog.
I guess I value his comedic value over the depth of the other protagonists. In a game like GTA, comedic value is key.
Yeah, on replays I always feel like Franklin is the most interesting but least explored.You could argue that Franklin was going along with those because of loneliness and depression. His dialogue when smoking weed seems to indicate that.
Of all 3 in GTA5 I found him the most interesting. Michael was laid bare so you knew everything during the game and Trevor well he is just a salad of every ridicilous, evil and insane character elements ever. He was the most boring after everything was said and done.
It sucks Rockstar didn't even attempt at giving Franklin more time to shine. Then again, I dislike GTA5 as a whole so...
Franklin knows what he is doing is immoral, so do the others but he seemed the only one that actually thought that mattered. I wish they explored that more, because it was the most interesting thing to me. I wanted to see him finally come to a point where the flimsy justification he has for doing what he knows is immoral collapses.
Well I would say Michael knows it’s immoral too. He just pretends to feel guilty about it when he really much enjoys it. While Trevor is pure IdFranklin knows what he is doing is immoral, so do the others but he seemed the only one that actually thought that mattered. I wish they explored that more, because it was the most interesting thing to me. I wanted to see him finally come to a point where the flimsy justification he has for doing what he knows is immoral collapses.
Niko canonically knows krav maga, so I assume he just kicks everyone in the nuts and declares himself the winner.
