No, not just for the sake of a sj checklist or "it's time" or for the sake of forced diversity. People don't need representation in something they don't consume in general. If they want a game with certain characters or themes, make your own and stop trying to co-opt popular entertainment for political reasons.

I'm just going to make it short... There's absolutely no reason for Rockstar not to do this on this day and age of gaming. Bye.

A female is a given for GTAVI, however, they should probably go full retard and take the Marvel route. They want our cash.



I see that you're preemptively using ad hominem against people who might disagree with you.

Marvel route?

They went full sjw with their comics.



I hope to god this is trolling...

On a related note, there is no reason for Rockstar TO do this in this day and age of gaming either. People will complain either way so why bother.

There´s no reason for them to do it if they don´t want to.



 anyone is OK.

It's videogame.



That sounds like forced pandering toward a specific group. Just let R* do what it wants.



               

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



"Yes for equal Representation"

The thing is its like 5% of the worlds population.... and probably less than that, who buy these games.
If they "only" make like 2-3 protagonists, haveing them be "gay" just for representation, could be at the cost of those other 95% of the population, that maybe dont want to play as a gay or lesbian character.

Like this isnt me hateing, but its a reality that these companies are lazy.
Catering to a small minority, does little for the vast majority of their players.
