[dropcap]M[/dropcap]aking all three protagonists in GTA V (Michael, Trevor, and Franklin) the same sex was a missed opportunity on Rockstar’s part.
All-Male GTA 5 Not A Good Strategy
For the first time in the series they could have created a woman for the single player with there still being two other male characters to play as
for people who prefer playing a male role.
For those who say it doesn’t make sense for a woman to be a cold blooded criminal and that Grand Theft Auto is a men’s world, doesn’t anyone remember Catalina from San Andreas?
She was ten times the killer Carl Johnson was and took the player on some pretty ballsy heists.
A character like her would fit perfectly while many other possibilities both entertaining and plausible exist.
Also this isn’t an argument about equality or sexism, definitely not one of the reasons.
We simply saying it would be a nice change of pace and a more diverse and fun experience if we got the chance to experience the GTA V world with a badass woman at the helm with her own part to play in the story.
At the very least we believe Rockstar should strongly consider creating a female character with her own plot and missions for a future DLC if they will not include one in the main release of the game.
It would be an awesome new perspective to explore.
GTA V set to hit the shelves on September 17 this year for Xbox 360 and PS3.
