Well, now that Game informer’s big reveal about Grand Theft Auto 5 is here, I have to admit that I’m considerably less jazzed about the game. I’m sure I’ll still play it, heck, I’m pretty sure the game will be a first day purchase for me. But all the details from the game that have been released/leaked so far point to something that just isn’t as special every entry in the series has been, at least as far as characterization goes. True, Tommy Vercetti wasn’t a deep, introspective character but his “revenge seeking mobster” role fit the scene of 80s Vice City perfectly. More impressive were the characters of CJ in San Andreas and Niko in IV, characters that broke away from the (still existent) trend of having muscle-bound Caucasian men and provided unique storylines.
