All are great characters, but to Michael appealed the most to me. Financially I am destined to do just as well as he does, but I'm having such a hard time finding the love I so long for. I'm afraid I'll end up just like him, rich and with someone I just don't love or perhaps no one at all. I also loved the character of Max Payne and I can't help, but feel like R* just makes fun of his tragic life through the character of Michael in GTA V. Franklin seemed a bit dull to me, would've liked him to be a gangsta badass, but in fact he was a man of morals and principles, which is great, but I don't see the point in having such character under control, since you can run over anyone you'd like the moment you get into a car. D:
You are young (i think) too young to worry about those things. The person for you is out there. Remember that a large part of Michael's problems come from him dwelling on the past too much. As long as you can remember to live in today and love what you got you should be able to avoid ending up like him. Also don't rob banks would help too
I've never played Max Payne so i can't comment on that part. Franklin was dull, I think he would have done a lot better if he was by himself but he (to me at least) is very over shadowed by Michael and Trevor.
Good point! As I've come to realise, no matter what, you must live in the present and keep away from dwelling in the past as it takes seconds, minutes, hours out of your future.
Yes. The problem with Franklin was that he tried to get out clean, get himself a normal life, out of the hood. But there's no place for such protagonists in a GTA game. As innocent as he was, the minute you were in control of him you would run people over and so screw his philosophy of life. It just didn't work. And given the fact that the alternative endings, no matter what, leave Franklin to make the ultimate choice, in my opinion, make him the main character overall and turn him into a character that observes things. It's as if through his eyes, the philosophy of the whole game is being told.
Just aired their final episode not long ago, in fact.
Everything except the last two seasons are available on Netflix.
Another similarity I spotted is between GTA 5's last heist mission and the heist from the 2003 remake of The Italian Job. THAT'S a movie worth watching. Especially if you have friends who believe Seth Green and Jason Statham could never be in the same movie. Plus it's got Mark Wahlberg and Charlize Theron.
