The 10 Greatest Characters In Grand Theft Auto History

The internet melted when news of GTA V was released and with good reason. But we shouldn't forget the previous outings and the cast of lunatics and thugs who made them great. (Grand Theft Auto, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

No Victor Vance? Lance vance dances(love the name) brother!? That guy was great in Liberty City stories he was cool and funny better than half of those guys on that list...

I would also include Donald Love. Something about his mysterious disappearance in GTAIII still makes me think of him - even today.

Oh, and no Salvatore Leone? Really?

Come to think of it, this is a pretty underwhelming list. What about 8-Ball (owner of the car bomb store), Ray Machowski (the bent cop in the underground bathrooms), Marty Chonks (from the Bitch'n Dog Food factory), Ricardo Diaz (Vice City mobster) or Auntie Poulet (Haitian leader)?

Wow, and NO mention of Phil Cassidy? His ties between Vice City and III were really cool.

This list doesn't even have the Samuel L. Jackson voiced character from San Andreas, Frank Tenpenny!

Oh, not to mention omitting others like OG Loc (the rapper), The Truth (who leads you to the jetpack in SA), or Patrick McReary (the Irish in IV).

Sheesh, I'm done. I haven't even mentioned prominent characters in LCS, VCS and Chinatown Wars. Or GTAI, II and London for that matter.

When I first met Cesar during that bouncy car mission in san andreas I just though he was some trailer trash in a wife beater that wanted to bang your sister, I couldn't have been more wrong lol.

Lol, how is Catalina not on this list. She was the definition of crazy. CJ really dodged a bullet.
NastyLeftHook0  +   1217d ago
tommy vercetti was the best.

No officer tenpenny or big smoke? what about wu zi mu, he was hilarious.
