The world of Grand Theft Auto is a gloriously ridiculous and overtly violent one, that we all love to indulge in on various levels. Outside of throwing the rulebook out the window and letting you run amok in a blur of pedestrian-abuse and vehicular destruction, another huge draw (especially in the newer iterations of the series), is embodying a character that is contributing to your onscreen actions by way of play-by-play commentary or an otherwise hilarious quip.

As the series has evolved and video games have begun to be taken just as seriously as films and other media, more questions tend to get levied at the portrayal of these characters, yet with the newest instalment GTA V, Rockstar managed to create three very different characters, one of which is the perfect middle-finger-flailing catch-all answer to those sorts of questions.

Going forward we’re sure Rockstar will continue to set new benchmarks and push every boundary they can, hopefully eventually creating a female protagonist to balance the testosterone-fuelled previous instalments.
