So what do you think about the main character?

Me personally, I think he will be great. I still don't know his ethnicity, but I believe he is Russian. He could be Middle Eastern as well. Slavic, Ukrainian, Belorussian, he could be either. But no matter what, he seems "darker" than the past characters. He's just coming to LC, and already he's smuggled, sold, and killed people so you know he's not small time to start off. If he's Russian, I'm sure he either already has, or will have ties to the Russian Mafia. I hope he has a cool name, like Radoslav Kalikrishnov.

This could bring back a character that could bring attitude back into the series. Not since Tommy Vercetti have I seen someone with this demeanor.

Carl: He was a pussy, runs away from home, complains all the time, gets told what to do and doesn't stand up for himself much.

Toni: I thought he would be good...He was better than Carl but even he got bullied by Vincenzo and his mom.

Victor: Way too emotional. I'm glad he was a good guy at heart, but he wasn't fit at all for a GTA character.

Now we have this guy, and it looks like he won't take ANY shit on his way to the top. I'm excited to see what path he will go down.

What do you guys think?

I agree, GTA needs a new Tommy.

I hope he is one of those uni-browed Russian monsters. One of those guys that will kick your ass for avoiding a look.

Or maybe from Chechenia (sp?) and muslim, I dunno but something completely different in ethnicity would be great. And people from Chechenia also have quite an attitude, which is awesome.

Not muslim or anything, at least not soon from now. You'll get so many people thinking they're trying to do the terrorist stereotype.

Yeah, a game including muslims, planes and tall building isn't really in favor with white-america. :/

to me, his accent tells me hes not middle eastern, but when it comes to accents who knows...anyways I think the best possibility is Russian, but the other countries you listed are certainly possible too.

I think we can all agree that this guy is Russian....which opens the door for possibly the best character yet. I agree 100% that Tommy was the best character so far, but Russian Mafia?!?! This is going to be absolutely insane. I never even dreamed about Russian mafia, it's going to be amazing to explore an entire new world of crime.

The Russian mafia has always been a cool concept, and I don't think this guy will disappoint.

Think about how he says "I've killed people, smuggled people, sold people." He says it so calm, as if he's been doing it since he was born and it's normal. Sounds like the kind of guy who can easily kill on the spot. And not the way like yelling at people and pummeling them, I mean calmly walking up to them and quickly gouging their eyes out with a screwdriver. Definitely what the series needs.

Same with me. I might be going out a limb with the limited information we have right now, but I think he'll give Tommy a run for his money

This could bring back a character that could bring attitude back into the series. Not since Tommy Vercetti have I seen someone with this demeanor.

Carl: He was a pussy, runs away from home, complains all the time, gets told what to do and doesn't stand up for himself much.

Toni: I thought he would be good...He was better than Carl but even he got bullied by Vincenzo and his mom.

Victor: Way too emotional. I'm glad he was a good guy at heart, but he wasn't fit at all for a GTA character.

Now we have this guy, and it looks like he won't take ANY shit on his way to the top. I'm excited to see what path he will go down.

What do you guys think?

I wasn't sure what to think of him.. but when you put it this way, I think the protagonist will rock!
