Protagonists - Personality
« on: September 15, 2013, 06:09:35 pm »
One of most interesting aspects of GTA Online for me, which was revealed in the latest edition of the magazine "Game Informer", was that you get to make a lot of choices regarding your Online characters personality.

Summary:
- The fourth [GTA Online] player is fresh off a plane in Los Santos, character creation involves choosing your mother, father and grandparents and you're given a character. Then players then choose a lifestyle, make choices about the things the character does (partying, couch potato, criminal, athletics nut).
- Characters appear in cutscenes when interacting with other characters in the world as they would in the single-player but doesn't speak.
- Female characters can be used in GTA Online.
- Starting skills are based on the chosen lifestyles, but can be upgraded, as can the look of the character.
- Holding the Select/Back button pulls up a menu where outfits and gestures can be changed.

What is your opinion about this? And what kind of lifestyle are you guys planning on choosing for your character? :)

I think I'm gonna start out with picking my own lifestyle and see how it turns out. Then I'll just change it into something wacky if it doesn't look good! :)

This sounds pretty cool, hopefully there will be alot of differences between characters so that we dont get copies of each other etc.
Has anything been seen about character creation? I cant seem to find a video on it to see how you can change your looks.

As i understand it you don't change the way you look, you choose your parents and grandparents and then R* takes care of the rest.

Found this quote from Leslie Benzie: "That's not how humans are made in the real world. Normally it involves a man, a woman, and some sexy time." That sexy time is the foundation of your online avatar - instead of breaking down the minutia of your character's appearance, you'll select your parents and grandparents and see what happens. After that, you select a lifestyle (party animal, couch potato, etc) to determine your starting skills.

Ah so they take the genetics from the father and mother and create what your guy looks like from that?

Yeah, but i don't really know where the mom&dad came from to start off with. That's the confusing part for me.

It seems like a realistic way to do it, but I know alot of people like to get the looks of their character perfect before playing online, usually with sliders and that.

Hopefully there are alot of different characters to choose from then, I dont want to be in game and see my long lost twin with the same mother and father haha.

Well if mobility is affected at all where not choosing an athletic lifestyle makes the character slower, I'm def choosing athletic nut. I don't wanna get to the summit of Mt. Chiliad, lose my vehicle, and have to run for 10 minutes back to some vehicles. And if I have to well at least i'll have some 'marathon pro perk' to work with

This one is yet to be confirmed, but it is highly unlikely to be random. Can't imagine R* to go through with that.

Details on picking the mother and father are being held close to Rockstar's chest. Maybe you choose between popular characters throughout the series, for example everyone seems to remember Candy Suxx from Vice City. Maybe her and Dennis Hopper's character as the **** king as well. Who knows?
