Why Multiple Characters in #GTAV Doesn't Make Sense


I don't believe the rumor of multiple playable characters in #GTAV after watching the trailer. It doesn't make sense. If that was the case more than one person would be narrating their story in the first trailer for the game. Remember the trailer to GTA IV? "Perhaps here will be different" was spoken by the main character Niko Bellic. Alternative characters come in the downloadable content. If you remember, The Ballad of Gay Tony & The Lost & the Damned put different perspectives on the same story. I bet #GTAV will do the same thing.

The trailer showcases a bunch of fancy cars. The one that caught my attention was the red convertible which showcases it's ability to drop it's hard top. That is a beautiful car. I can't wait to ride it down the streets of Los Santos. Is that Los Angeles? I beat San Andreas 5 years ago. I can't remember. I know I saw a sign that said Los Santos in the trailer tho.

It looks like our protagonist this time around is a middle aged American white man. The name of our character remains a mystery, but I'm already interested. It looks like our protagonist has already accomplished everything he wants in life. He's retreated to what looks like Los Angeles for "the magic" as he calls it. Grand Theft Auto V looks like this guys midlife crisis. I don't care though. He is interesting enough for me to want to see what his life is like. Sign me up for the #GTAV. You'll probably see me at a midnight release.

Then again watching the trailer almost 12 hours later opens me up to the possibility of multiple characters. Who's to say you're not playing as one of the homeless people in the street, or as the guy who is running from the cops. Los Santos is definitely set in modern times. All I can see missing is the occupy movement. I can't wait to hear what the radio stations have to say. Maybr the story is about multiple characters. I just have a hard time believing it. [img]
