Rockstar boss drops massive GTA 5 story spoiler

The New York Times has published a rather interesting interview with Dan Houser in which, among other things, the Rockstar co-founder manages to heavily spoil the plot of Grand Theft Auto 5.

The story is too old to be commented.

They should have saved this as a surprise for the player... now Im going to expect it to happen.


When It happened in AC3 and Heavy Rain, I went HOLY SH*T WTF!

But now I'm going to expect this to happen now :(, I like when my games go SGT Doakes on me

To be fair I think they would have tailored the story around the fact you know. It would be stupid to play a character and it turns out to be the bad guy without at least hinting (never played Heavy Rain so can't comment on that). In AC3 you do not play as the main antagonist and there is a small twist at the very beginning of the game (funnily enough bigger than the end twists). GTA stories tend to be quite long. To keep you in the dark about being the bad guy for that long (just for a twist) just wouldn't work.

Huh... didn't think of it like that... kind of like a who dun it idea?

Whatever... really hyped for wednesday when the trailer drops.

I feel like Im going to like the father character and the upcoming hustler... but the pshyco war vet im not sure

They can either make him annoying pshyco like Tuco from Breaking Bad, or well done pshyco like Anton in no country for old men

It was pretty much obvious Haytham was going to be a bad guy. He's British. It's almost impossible for something set in American to have British people that aren't bad guys.

Nimblest-Assassin2220d ago (Edited 2220d ago )

Really... we are doing this here? Everyone but the natives were british. It was a civil war, in which a bunch of british people wanted to leave the rule of britian.

Also... thats incorrect... most of the times now, Russians or Arabs are bad guys.

Also... how is something set in American?

And no it wasn't obvious.. I mean his student was Charles Lee, who was a big American General

There were plenty of British people who weren't the bad guys and plenty of "Americans" who were. Did you even play the game? Washington gave the order to burn Connor's village to the ground, Haytham was trying to win independence as well, he just approached it differently.

Deku-Johnny2220d ago

You obviously missed the point in my post. I meant Things set in America* always put British people as bad guys, failing that they cast a British guy to play a bad guy.

You know how you can avoid this by not reading this or any other GTA related articles. I want to go into GTA 5 with out spoilers.

So I will watch the trailers but that's it

@ nim

I already figured that out so its not a big surprise. Anyone could have figured that out with the three playable characters.

josephayal2220d ago

Grand Theft Auto V storyline promises to be the most exciting one yet! just like GTA4

torchic2220d ago

well I play GTA just to fudge shit up. I only play story to unlock stuff to fudge shit up with, so spoilers, whatever

danieldeath2220d ago

I am not going to read this article ...

iChii2220d ago

One of the three main characters is the antagonist. <- make sure you don't read that part! You can thank me later..
