That and I think it's an 18 page spread, not 12.

So, Matt Bertz (who wrote the GI article) just tweeted that none of them are named Albert.

It's a good thing R* decided to go with a redneck, a latino and a black dude.

Some of the gtagaming community would rage so much if the main character was black again.

Keyword some. Some have an issue with the main character being black, others simply don't give a fuck.

You include yourself wherever you want.

There were many things wrong with CJ and Vic Vance, race wasn't an issue.

Riiiiight.

And Niko was just a perfect lead, wasn't he?

Niko was equally shit.


I really don't know how you've turned this into a race issue? Are you really that sensitive?

Agreed.

Replaying San Andreas though, I may have been too hard on CJ, though. He does some pretty heinous shit.

-CJ is just hypocritical, he is totally against dealing drugs because it destroys lives, yet he happily fucks up Madd Doggs life, robs a government base, steals a fighter jet, kills hundreds of people... etc
-Vic Vance was a "moral" character who suddenly turned into a mass murderer because his brother had bad asthma.
-Niko was just boring. Sluddgey looking character for a sluddgey looking game.


The reason people think so fondly of Vercetti and Claude is because they never hid what they were. Power seeking, immoral men. A game like Grand Theft Auto can't shove emotions at us one minute and then give us free range to run down grannies the next.

I think CJ's hypocrisy is what defines him as an interesting character, to me at least. Also, it's not really hypocrisy. To CJ, the most important thing is the street, his family, and friends. Drugs destroyed that. So yeah, he's willing to fuck up Mad Dogg's life for Jeffrey, someone he grew up with even if Jeffrey is a loser. CJ has a code. Fuck with his family, and you'll get it in equal return. The thing is, CJ never flinches if he has to kill people. He may question, but he never gets giulty about it unless it's one of his own (for example, Ryder). CJ knows what kind of animal he is and relishes in it.

This is why when you get Sweet out of prison, he's pissed at CJ for selling out because he forgot about "the streets" the most important part of their code's mantra.

To be fair to CJ, CJ WASN'T a power seeking man, until he was shown the opportunity that lies beyond Grove Street. Then after that he's owning casinos and shit.

Vic Vance is pretty bad, though.

And Niko...jeez. Terrible character.

CJ though? He does the least moralizing.

I hope that dude on the far left is completely and utterly ruthless (and he definitely looks to be). Would be nice to have a character that actually doesn't give a fuck/isn't contradictory.
