I’m not sure how much to say about these trailers for Grand Theft Auto V that you can’t figure out on your own. They’re amazing. Above is Michael. Below is Franklin, then Trevor. Watch them. I’ll wait.
Michael is a middle-aged former (or current?) criminal who’s rich but miserable. His family makes him nuts, and he wants a nice quiet life…while still craving the thrills and dangers of breaking the law. And we learn a lot of this as he talks to his therapist, bringing up shades of Tony Soprano, don’t you think? Then there’s Franklin, who’s mired deep in what they call the “thug life.” It seems like he’s also unhappy with the situation he’s found himself in, which is likely what’ll cause him to hook up with Michael and Trevor. Speaking of Trevor, he’s clearly a major low-life. Remember Steve Buscemi from Fargo? Kind of like that guy. He’s gross, and he seems to be an old friend of Michael’s.
Frankly, I think I’m gonna like playing as Trevor the most, because he’s a total creep. Also, here’s a Juggalo:
So there’s that.
What do you think of the trailers? This is basically going to be Game of the Year for 2013, right? I mean, I know a lot of folks really like that BioShock Infinite, but this one’s going to be amazing, right?
And not only that, plenty of people are saying that the visuals are too good to be current-gen, but so far Rockstar hasn’t confirmed that GTA V is going to be for PC or for next-gen systems, saying only that they’ll appear on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. Do you believe them? Think that some more platform announcements are coming soon?
Just tell us what you think already. I want this game. I definitely don’t feel like waiting until its release date, September 17. I want it NOW.
