The main characters should be customizable

There's also the whole VA thing. Think about Shepherds voice. It was, really, whiny and nasal. Like Bill Maher's wimpy kid brother. Now, customize your character to be a hulking scarred up terror. A visual representation of the word "menacing". The kinda image most NFL linebackers would run away from.

Now, imagine him speaking in Shepherds voice.

???

Doesn't work.

Sometimes you have to let them tell their story, and they need everything about their character, and it is "their" character, to fit the profile they have established. It's easier to sell the story when all the components match up. Not when the supposed Italian American gangster with a voice like Joe Pesci is running around looking like an African American Rodeo clown, or an Asian surfer.

You mean, let me understand this cause, ya know maybe it's me, I'm a little ****ed up maybe, but I'm funny how, I mean funny like I'm a clown, I amuse you? I make you laugh, I'm here to ****in' amuse you? What do you mean funny, funny how? How am I funny?!

No it wouldn't be awesome. GTA's characters have distinct back stories. It would directly effect the style of storytelling that Rockstar does with their characters.
