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.

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.

Sure.... but I cant see how having a female protagonist would make it better in any way.

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.

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.

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

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.

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

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.

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.

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 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.
