F*ck no! I don't even make female characters in role playing games. I don't want to play as a chick who only in cinema has a the ability to beat up men twice her size. Please.

They bought the Ballad of Gay Tony so why not live the female life on GTA?

You don't play as Gay Tony you play as Luis his business partner and bodyguard. Also Tony really wasn't that gay there were no male nudity and no gay sex scenes.

You say live the female life as if they have drasticly different lives from us.

I wouldn't GAF as long as the game is good.

#11 Posted by NeonNinja (17318 posts) -

No.

Granted, I wouldn't buy a GTA game anyway, but I have a hard time imaging women playing the main role in crime/gangs. I'm certain it happens, but it's something that I find more believable with a male character.

#12 Posted by campzor (34932 posts) -
Sure.... but I cant see how having a female protagonist would make it better in any way.

Im not insecure, so yes.

Pretty much. Or at least I would if I were interested in the GTA series.

I have no issue with it as long as the game is good. From a storyline standpoint I'm sure it would be ridiculous.
#16 Posted by The__Kraken (858 posts) -

No.

However, given the format of GTAV, I'd be fine if one of the protagonists of a GTA game was female. Then, I could just avoid playing that character.

What, you don't think trapdoor spiders are cool?

GTA is too mainstream for him to care anyway Though having a female main character would mean it isn't mainstream....

Grand Theft... kitchen utilities, teddy bears, and make-up.

Well, there's plenty of mainstream games that have female leads. Tomb Raider, Metroid, um... Starcraft:Brood War...

Huh. Guess you have a point there.

This is my qualm as well. As long as the game is good, I wouldn't care, but there's a reason that most gang members/organized crime dudes are men. Not saying women can't hack it or anything, it's just generally not done.
#26 Posted by Jankarcop (10624 posts) -

as long as she has gold/tan skin, and not that fake spray on or sun-baking thing that white people do.

#27 Posted by Planeforger (16216 posts) -

I wouldn't care either way, if the game turns out to be good.

Still, if they don't end up with a hypersexualised underwear model as their lead character, they'd lose their core audience. Teenage boys tend to be incredibly insecure about their sexualities; they wouldn't dare be caught identifying with a female character in a game.

Mr_BillGates
a 'rage' mode when you get your period. Buffed up damage, Health etc...
#29 Posted by mems_1224 (48405 posts) -
sure, why not? Saints Row can have a female lead and that game is still great.
#30 Posted by Sagem28 (10498 posts) -

Would buy.

#31 Posted by Inconsistancy (8094 posts) -
All that matters is if it's good or not. GTA 'really' needs to have its mechanics cleaned up, one of the clumsiest games I've ever played.

Mr_BillGates
That sounds pretty fun.
#33 Posted by mccoyca112 (5433 posts) -

Depends entirely on the gameplay and the character herself. The sex of the character in general wouldn't be a deal breaker.

really i'd be ok with it.

that said, part of me is thinking "omg... just wait till the sexist alarmist get a load of this" whenever i think of GTA's brand of humor and that'll likely be a mega-blockbuster (smaller games don't get grilled nearly as much). The other part of me think it'd be fine even with the humor, because of how Rockstar has made their lead characters. Usually they are all very nuanced compared to the vast majority of video game leads, and have increasingly been getting better at them.

but that's just my thoughts.

I play manly games like Riddick. imagine female lead in that game...SNIPER4321
That would be so stupid. Just imagine the cover of that game :lol:

I would play it too. But, just because a game is good doesn't mean it will sell well. See the current state that THQ is in.

Make it more edgey and bad*ss..

Lets seee..

Make him Russian.. Russian, oh yeah..

....

Make him wear sunglasses...

...

...

INDOORZ..

.. I think I might just have something..

Russian, Sunglasses..

What else..

I like to see something different... Make him 15.. No, no.. 12... !2, yes.. Never been down before.

Oh my god, I think I created a monster..

....

Maybe he has to deal with some sort of corruption.. Corruption is always good.

Next GTA protagonist, right there, guyz..
