3 protagonists eh? Could be really interesting to see how this turns out. I can see positives and negatives to 3 as opposed to just 1. I'm very much excited for the game, though, and can't wait to see how this game and the storyline unfolds.
3 protagonists? That could be brilliant or terrible. One of the things I always liked about GTA was that you grew to love the character you were. Three might spoil the identity of the game. Having said that it looks like it's going to be huge so who knows. Will they be their own little crew and you will pick which on you want to play as for each mission or will all missions be seperate? I'm not sure how they are going to work it.
It'll be fine. Rockstar rarely fuck up. They won't fuck up the most anticipated game of the next year. The world is way too big for one guy, I doubt they'd all live relatively close at all, it does say they interchange which makes it even more intriguing.
I'm not too high on the idea of having 3 protagonists, but I will see how it plays out before properly judging it. One of the best things about GTA games, and The Arseache Kid touched on it, is the connection to your character. Through all the missions you play and the hardships you come across, you really get into your character and the story, and I'm not sure GTA 5 will have that kind of connection with three people to play as, but who knows.
The thing I'm most excited about GTA 5 is the setting. GTA San Andreas is not only my favorite GTA game, but my favourite game of all time period, and I'm really excited that GTA 5 is set in the same location (at least the Los Santos part). And I'll take anything over the boring and dull Liberty City setting of GTA 4.
