1. Strippers/prostitutes can have side jobs. Strippers can be oversexed, normal or undersexed Whatever. Some women could even appear less attractive without their make up/mascara and hair done. Did you know that?

2. Women can fight. It doesn't matter if men are stronger. It's just videogames. Even GTA as a concept doesn't make sense. Don't take it seriously. Lol

3. What consensus? What outlandish statements that are illogical? I never made one so far. Is it trolling to say that GTA can sell like hot cakes even if they have a female/gay protagonists?

its as if with every reply your argument deteriorates further and further. try actually making a case for GTA needing to have a gay female protagonist instead of just abstracting your same few points into obscurity. you are suggesting a game centering around a gay female protagonist who works as a stripper, and then as a "side job" works as a spy that also knows how to fight. none of that even remotely resembles a GTA game. the characters in GTA dont have jobs, they work in the criminal underground. there are also no spies in GTA at all. there have been drug dealers, gang members, thiefs, bank robbers, etc. things that you see in the criminal underground. spies work AGAINST those things. i also think youll find that there is very little fighting in GTA. you shoot guns and run people over. occasionally you punch and kick, but thats really it.

what im saying is that your idea would not work as a GTA game, hell im not sure it would even work as a game. overall it just sounds like a dulled down, less interesting version of Bayonetta.

Why not a handicapped protagonist? Why doesn't OP want equal representation of the differently-abled? Ableism strikes yet again.



We need more male characters in video games, why are men underrepresented as video game main characters?

1) What.

2) Then why don't you take a piece of your own advice and don't take the game so seriously? Let the developers do with it as they please, and don't force in protagonists just for sake of diversity.

3) For one, the consensus in the very poll you posted, in which there is a 64:0 vote differential against your proposal. Secondly, you compared GTA V, a game with high acclaim to the Twilight saga, a subpar book/movie series. And finally, you make asinine statements like point 1. What is that? It doesn't even make any sense.



I would care the same for the game if there was a gay or woman protagonist instead of whatever the previous one had... 0%

I'd generally say no, just because adding things just for the sake of them isn't that great. Adding stuff because it server a purpose is great though. In the case of GTA though, I certainly wouldn't mind seeing this done. GTA has always been controversial, and this would actually be a fairly neat way to continue with that. That said, I'm not expecting it to happen, as it might significantly hurt the game commercially. It would still be a huge success, but large groups of people would also be put off by it.



I think Dev teams should make whatever characters they want, and SJW quotas should stay out of video games.

Why are you discriminating by not mentioning she-males? They have every right to be in this too.

NO. let me give you a brief rundown of how to write a character. first, the character has to be necessary to the story that is being told. second, the character's physical appearance is designed based on what role they play within the story. third, the character's personality is determined based on their place in the world of the story. fourth, you need to decide how the character would react to each situation the story would put them in.

now lets do a rundown for those two properties you mentioned, "female" and "gay".
1. it is extremely rare for any story to require a gay character, except if the story revolves around accepting diversity, which GTA does not. being female on the other hand is a tricky spot, since the criminal underworld is in a male majority.
2. people do not necessarily "look" gay unless they act according to gay stereotypes. and there are just as many ways to design a female character as there are for male characters.
3. neither "female" or "gay" are traits that affect a character's personality.
4. again, since "female" and "gay" are not personality traits, they play no role in how a character would react to the situations that would occur in a GTA game.

hopefully with this, you can see why a gay female character does not need to be in a GTA game, and why it would be complicated to do so

There are so many wrong things with this post that I am not going to bother answering back all that you said.

Neither "female" or "gay" are traits that affects a characters personality.

What an eyeroll.

if that is the case and there is no difference, why do they need to be represented?



I hope they make the main protagonist a white male homophobe just to annoy the TC and SJW's.
