I say that a Rags to Riches game is a bit blase. I like the idea in GTA4 about revenge, but I think it would be better served with a larger dose of urgency. I think the object of your vendetta should be revealed early, then you miss the chance to kill them. Then they could spend the rest of the game taunting you and throwing roadblocks your way as they unravel into a paranoid mess when you keep refusing to die. This can be compounded by initially being part of a small group that all want revenge and/or power, but they all eventually turn on you.

I never opposed the rags to riches theme. I love it and I want it back. But your idea is awesome. Riches to rags to riches. That's a great idea and I hope that happens.

And about the main character: I... WANT... TO... MAKE... MY... OWN!!!!!!
Give is Create-A-Protagonist. Why that was never implemented is beyond me. I want to be the guy running around in the city and steal cars. I've been living vicariously through Claude, Tommy, CJ, Vince and al the others. Now I want CAP. And I wanna use the same guy online too. I want that! To me, that's more important than any other new feature GTA: Next might bring. It's a good idea and everybody would love it. We're on the next-gen consoles here. He doesn't have to be mute like Claude. They could make it with voice no problem.

What and have a stupid selection of voices like in Saints Row 2 or just have a mute.

Having your own protagonist would be cool, but it's just not GTA, or at least it isn't to me

They'd find a way to make it good for sure. It's not about a stupid selection of voices. It's about the series expanding on what it is. Claude was supposed to be anyone in GTA3, so why not a step further?

They did take it a step further. They made Tommy a year later, they gave him a voice, and they made arguably the best Grand Theft Auto story to date. While create-a-character would give the game a personal touch, it would be undesired amongst most fans who appreciate the GTA stories as being some of the best in the industry.

Ah but Victim: The story could easily evolve in whatever way around you couldn't it? I also love the storylines, but I feel that GTA4 was a bad one. Same went for GTA: LCS, CTW, TBOGT and TLAD. Kindda boring stories there.

Or... A successful office worker gets tangled up in some crap and we remake the getaway.

A British Main Character would be cool.

could be awesome with an badass (Vin Diesel) type of character!

but i don't think that would be possibly, unless Mr. Diesel himself was the actor (just to get money in the buget)
seen too many crap games with Vin.. one for sure is Wheelman..

but still couldn't hurt

Like Havok_Jro said we could get hit with a double edge sword, it could be good but if they don't give a variety of voices and and large dialogue then we could get a SR2 kind of game, but it is better to stay with what is not broken.

I don't see how creating a character and choosing their voice would ruin the game. Sure, the voice might not be a good fit like the past games that have no choice, but I think you'd forget about it pretty quickly. I've never played SR2, so I don't know how good their voice actors are, but GTA always does a good job.

In either case, giving us Create a Character after beating the missions wouldn't be a bad idea. We can already change clothes, although I find it to be annoying and takes way too long, you should be able to cycle through all the clothes in the store/closet without having to wait for the character to walk into the closet and get changed, which is why I never bother with the clothing.
