Don't worry, GTA VI won't have single player anyway, because GTA online brings in far more of dem sweet sweet moneyz! Sou you'll basically get GTA online 2 and there you'll be able to make whatever character you like. Hooray!

I am sympathetic with every minority or majority, but i'm not sympathetic towards shoehorning things just for the sake of representation. You aren't doing anyone a favor by saying such things, or accusing people of being homophobic for disagreeing just shows how unreasonable you are.

Lol maybe they can make your own story creator that you can play like RPG maker? i would love to make a story about Britney killing Christina's music career  and Beyonce stealing songwriting credits on their journey to the hollywood top charts.😂



If someone asks why I'm using an alt account, CGI and Truckusaurus got me a temp approval until I get my iconic and notorious "kurasakiichimaru" account back. :p

if the story calls for it but not to appease the PC crowd.

 

I liked Ballad of gay tony on gta4

Why don't you play The Sims instead, then?

I don't get your point? Can I be a sex worker in the Sims dreaming to pay her debts and make money while studying in a university but suddenly got entangled with a criminal client she had business with and got caught by her boyfriend cop? I don't think so.

I would probably play the next GTA despite of it having or not having a female or homosexual character. However, it would be interesting to see how well would a homosexual protagonist would be written, especially if they aim to surpass GTA IV story-wise. But I'd have my doubts like many people.

But the outcry on the social media would be insane, unfortunately. Some kids and adults alike would outright refuse to buy the game because it has an homosexual protagonist, even if there's a SWITCH option that lets you play as three different characters. I am actually picturing what gamers and their mothers would say to slander this kind of decision. I would be interested to see what would be the outcome on the game for such a sudden switch.

Unless... they make him start as heterosexual, but later there is a choice where he can turn homosexual at the decision of the player.

And how would you incorporate being a prostitute into GTA? Where is the gameplay?



Well, if it fits into the story they want to tell, then sure why not. I just feel like it's kinda condescending to those groups of people if you're doing it just for the sake of doing it. Of course, they could have a homosexual protagonist and just not draw any additional attention to it, which could be a nice way to approach it.
