Still No Female Protagonists?

If you want gender equality you aren't a feminist. Feminists are for female gender superiority, and it's also used as a defense for some women to get away with stuff other people normally wouldn't put up with.

As if females can do no wrong.


You're being too complicated.

Whoops. *your

Because they know you can only play the game 23-25 days outta the month with a female protagonist.

And the response I got

Misogynists like you make me disgusted to be a man.

Guess by who?


Maybe he's got an overbearing girlfriend who reads his posts or something.

Look, if you wanna claim sexism or any other isms, then don't complain to us and instead do the adult thing and tell the Housers, or Rockstar more likely, with an email concerning your issues.

However, let me point out that the Housers like to design the character inside and out so they flesh out his personality in the narrative. That's why they shun create a character in single player. The reason they haven't done a female lead is probably because they have no clue as to how a woman would react to the situations as we do.

Remember, the higher amount of Testosterone makes us more prone to aggression, which most criminals possess, and happen to be male.

Aggression makes for good video games.

All the people saying they don't fit, how so?

Look at Elizabeta, or the chinese girl from GTA, or Catalina.

All girls, criminals, and powerful in their own ways.

Catalina is still alive (most likely because GTA never killed her) screwing people over criminally.

Elizabeta was a powerful druglord with tons of men working for her.

Chinese girl in GTA3 also had men working for her, and was a powerful mafia boss.

How do girls not fit into GTA? You guys just don't want to play as a girl, but imo as a guy they should have let one of the three main characters be a girl.

Honestly, I wouldn't be surprised if some news/gaming company points that out.

Woman won't fit GTA because as has been said before:

I would prefer a male. I like it when I can "get into the role" if you know what I mean. Playing a girl would be sort of anti-aggressive. Imagine GoW with a female main char, wouldn't be nearly the same.


But then again you where most likely to focust on trying to do make woman seem fit for gta that you didn't even bother reading the topic's posts.

Also Catalina is one of the worst characters in GTA history, by now she's old and has floppy flapjacks, If you know what i mean.

'Now a little bit about something you haven't yet mentioned, but might so i'll go ahead'

And don't come and say 'You can't handle a woman like that' because thats what they said to a few good men a long time ago, And they sure could handle a woman acting like a man and took it one step further.

Which laid to the invention of homosexuality because when people think like this, handling a man as a man will be the ultimate showdown of power. Which is a rule in a lot of prisons it seems.

That's fine and dandy. But the thing is that they are tertiary characters giving you orders. You don't know how they rose to power nor how they go about doing the dirty deeds themselves.

Look, if Rockstar wants to make a female lead, then they should do it with quality. Not just to amuse some folk.

All I'm going to say is that it's much harder for me to relate to a woman, and relating to the character is a big thing to the Housers.

And correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't remember Elizabeta being that powerful and having scores of goons at her disposal. She was more like the Queen hood rat of Bohan.

How about this: All the people who want a female protag, go and make a game. I know that's nowhere near as easy as it sounds but if you REALLY want one then you should be able to do it. Then, if the game does well, you'll have a franchise from which you can preach about equality and acceptance. The housers, on the other hand, have already done the work, built their company and made enough money to make a game about donkey shows if they want; it doesn't matter. It's their company and their game so they'll make it their way.
