I'd just like to point something out here.

You justify having a female lead character in a fictional medium ( a future GTA game ) by showing us examples of females that have appeared in.... a fictional medium ( Both films and games ). Perhaps if you justified it using IRL examples, it would've worked.

Now for my point.

Eidos are pretty much geniuses. They found the perfect niche when creating Lara Croft. Sweaty teenagers everywhere could enjoy playing a damn well designed game, and get to look at some pixelated ass at the same time. Any other companies trying to do this at the time, or even now, for that matter, would be seen trying to get into that niche ( making it a non - niche ). Anyhow, if GTA were to use a female character, i don't think it would work. Lara croft is the definitive female VG character, and that's what makes it great, in the same way GTA's tried and tested formula makes it great. Coca - cola, for example, don't make cakes. Ford don't make TV's. etc, etc.
After reading this topic, it seems to me that your reason for wanting a female protagonist is to 'be a lesbian' and 'work in strip clubs' so you can look at pixelated femal ass all day (see Tomb Raider reference above), not because you think R* should broaden their horizons, and demographic.

I think it would be very exploiting to have the main character just a stripper and a lesbian so teenagers can get their pixel kicks. I want a female protagnist because I think it will be a great change to the game and work very well.

Well, if there was one, you can bet your ass she'd never wear anything that doesn't show herself off (serously, imagine if the female protagonist in a GTA game was ugly. Rockstar would go bankrupt)

But I dont think Rockstar would even think about making a female protagonist. Maybe as a bonus or something.

In the meantime russie, why don't you input a character change cheat in VC and play as Candy Suxxx if you want it that bad?

LOL, you thought a female that sexy would waste their time on a gaming forum? :lolbounce:
Although, if you thought I was female...then there was no need to say "Lady Harwood", which causes me to think that excuse is complete bullshit.



What kind of background story do you think a female protagonist would have in a GTA game?

She is a Teenage mum (Now in her 20's with her child being 16) that finds out her kid brings a gun home, also finds out her kid's in a street gang. Suddenly the rival gangs attack her house, there main aim is to kill her child. Her kid times. Her "Boyfreind" is killed too. She seeks revenge, by doing jobs for gangs/mafia, eventually getting their respect, rising the ranks, and killing those little bastards :P

Yeah, my Lesbian thing was my ultimate fantasy, And I think that Rockstar should broaden the horizon out into the edges of the universe, not just have poorly animated pixel asses...

Indeed. A great change. And not just skins, a storyline that reflects female veiws and issues, as well as keeping us males entertained. It could also get rid of some of GTA's controversy, thus saving Rockstars ass, and they can make more games.. :rolleyes:

Well, if there was one, you can bet your ass she'd never wear anything that doesn't show herself off (serously, imagine if the female protagonist in a GTA game was ugly. Rockstar would go bankrupt)

It would be the players choice, I hope the GTAVC style skin thing returns, none of this complicted clothes shit.

But I dont think Rockstar would even think about making a female protagonist. Maybe as a bonus or something.

Rockstar is 1000's of delvelopers. They all have different ideas, concepts, and morals.

In the meantime russie, why don't you input a character change cheat in VC and play as Candy Suxxx if you want it that bad?

Russie? Dont call me Russian!!! And when I enter the cheat, all I get is some red head bimbo pornstar skin, with very very off animations. Honestly, if you press look back while holding a 2 handed weapon, you'll see what I mean!!!

I don't know why the idea of a tough female is still such an issue. We already have tons of kick ass chicks in games so I don't find it a shock and awe situation if they make a female the lead.

Yeah... It doesnt even have to be a tough female, it can be anything the player fancies, tweaked by SA style RPG stats.
BTW, did I mention your Sean Connery sig makes me drool in envy?
And how do you get the little things, Im new lol.

Anyway, I wouldn't mind playing with a female character, it would be a nice change and deliver a GTA experience unlike any other.

29 - 16 = 13.......... Pushing it a bit?

... The fact that you know this already, from using the cheat enough, kind of worries me and puts doubt that you want a female lead for anything other than "looking at pixel ass".

There is no "freedom of speech" in forums, yes you can say what you want but in the end what the mods say gos. This is not a democracy.

I won't mind playing with a female protagonist. I actually think it might be a good gamble for Rockstar to do. If the GTA series was to include a female protagonist, it would attract more females to the series, therefore boosting income. Also, you can kill people without looking bad. We have had female antagonists, why not female protagonists for a change?
