One of the little triumphs of the GTA series is their ability to come up with characters who could understandably do the things that you might do with them in the game. Would Nico rob a bank? Sure, of course. Would Nico drive on the sidewalk? Well… you know… some days are better than others…
Well, in GTA V, I’ve met two protagonists so far and both of them do a great job of communicating deep unhappiness, deep resentment, and are surrounded by friends and family who do nothing to alleviate this. Honestly, the friends and family make it worse.
Which, I suppose, should make it easier to drive on sidewalks if it came to that.
I am, however, asking myself “why am I spending time with these people?” which isn’t a good sign, really… I mean, I understood why I was hanging out with Nico (heck, I even understood why I was hanging with Nico’s cousin). GTA V hasn’t established that quite yet. Perhaps more time will sell me on the concept.
So… what are you playing?
