When you start the Grand Theft Auto 5 game, you will not have three of the main Characters: Michael, Franklin, and Trevor. Turns out the user will have to “explore the world of each of them” in order to access all of the characters.
President of Rockstar North Leslie Benzies informs the website jeauxactu.com that it would “hurt the gameplay and story” if all three of the individuals were available at the beginning of the game.
Benzies states, “Much of the game relies on the three characters and the way in which the lifestyle and actions of one affect the other two. We think of the three characters from the start but we thought that it would hurt the gameplay and the story.
“We want to give the player the opportunity to know the three characters individually and explore the world of each of them, and it would not have been possible if the three had been available from the start.”
It is obvious that Grand Theft Auto 5 requires the user to know the back story of each character before they are available to embody.
How do you feel about Rockstar’s decision?
