A Game of Three Criminals
Diverging from the single protagonists of the past, GTA 5 presents three different not-at-all heroes, the deranged, the broken, and the determined team up and set out to make the San Andreas state their playground.
Meet Michael, a family man living in a luxurious mansion with his wife and children. The problem is he’s bored out of his mind, he lives under witness protection, his wife cheats on him, their kids are hardly any consolation, and the only way out of the ensuing midlife crisis is going back to the only thing that made him feel alive: an intense life of crime with improbable allies.
High five Franklin, a guy from the hood. Franklin just wants to get out of the destructive lifestyle of gangs and crime through earning a good buck as a repo man and by joining Michael and a deranged psychopath on a number of heists. The youngest of the three, but not at all incompetent, Franklin will do whatever it takes to not have to do whatever it takes anymore.
Beware of Trevor. Used to fly high in the military, now is usually just high as a kite, he’s an old friend of Michael’s, or so the story goes. Violent and mentally unstable he fits right in with a thief and a youth who wants out of the game. The crew’s designated pilot and the guy to go to when some sniping is just what’s needed for the job, Trevor is GTA V’s the best guy for rampages. Witness their interactions in the exquisite Rockstar’s storytelling.
