GTA 5 Should Feature Strong Female Protagonist

Maybe it could work, but we are not totally convinced. (Grand Theft Auto V, PS3, Xbox 360)

No thanks.

Honestly, I don't think I would have mind it and I could see it working. I think Rockstar just did it to be safe, since they know their general market. Maybe they'll test the water with a DLC.

I remember when they first showed off San Andrea, people at Neogaf were raging about the thug settings. It was not a pretty day there when the screens were released. But hey look at the game now, it's considered the best out of the franchise by many people.

every time I watch the movie "set it off" I always imagine R* pulling it off. one day maybe we'll see it. until then I think a dlc story with a chick could be a good test.

What a horrid article. While I would love a female protagonist in Grand Theft Auto, this article does no justice in the argument of why one should be included. Plus, GTA 5 already has its three protagonists - they should be talking about GTA 6 (providing the possibility of there being one) instead of GTA 5, where it's too late to change anything so drastic four months from launch.

"As a DLC it could definitely work without drastically effecting them financially"

I honestly wouldn't care one way or the other. I'm sure Rockstar would have a great story regardless. Besides, I get a GTA game for their crazy open world stuff. I don't care much about who the main characters are, what race they are, or what sex they are.

I would love a character similar to Bonnie MacFarlane she was a great character :)
Sandmano  +   695d ago
All the characters in Red dead were great.

Realistically, no thanks.But for shits and giggles, why not?
Would love to see the feminazi's change their tune.

Hypocrites always amuse me.

They need to have one but I kind of think it would be a better fit for GTA6, maybe if it's set in an expanded Vice City.

Since they feature three characters in this game maybe the next game could feature two...a brother and a sister, perhaps they could be Tommy Vercetti kids who need to take control of the city again. Least then you have a female and male character.

It never ceases to amaze me how we can't even talk about the possibility of female protagonists in anything without the discussion turning into a cesspit of prejudice, accusations, and rants. Society hasn't really come that far, after all.

I wouldn't mind a female protagonist. I don't feel strongly either way and I care about a well-written protagonist first and foremost, but a female character should be just as viable an option for a lead character.

Very well said.

We've played plenty of father's in vide games (Red Dead Redemption, Bioshock Infinite, God of War, I Am Alive etc), When was the last time we ever got the chance to play as a mother?

That, is a character I would love to see, especially in a GTA game.

Think of her as a Sarah Connor type. She'd be kick ass.

Not sure if I would like it as much. It would have been cool if one of the characters in V would have been a female. I would just prefer it to be an option, and not forced.

Does't matter one way or another. But don't just go making it for the sake of making it. That's not at all what the industry needs.

I wouldn't mind a female protagonist. I'm gonna find myself terrorizing whatever city I go to regardless.
