MY MOM JUST SAT ME DOWN LIKE “I found a picture of you on the internet of you in class” AND SHE’S ALL SERIOUS AND SO I’M LIKE WELL SHOW ME THE FUCKING PICTURE OH MY GOD THIS IS AN INVASION OF MY PRIVACY I CAN’T BELIEVE THIS
Oooooh man, thats a really good, involved question Anon!
Okay so, when I first started playing GTAV I didn’t get into the story. I had a hard time relating with Franklin and Lamar, and being that the game pretty much opens up with them, I found it to be stagnant and a bit boring. Then Michael comes into the picture and I totally got behind Michael as a character. I started to play the game more after that. I understood Michael’s place in the world and I understood how he felt about a lot of shit that went down between him and his family and his own decisions. Then Trevor comes in and at first I was really flipped out by Trevor and I felt like Rockstar really characterized him, almost cartoonishly, which at first I didn’t like at all. But over time and ‘getting to know Trevor’ through the game, I understood him more and I began to look at him as a damaged person instead of a cartoon character. I still wasn’t completely sold on this game though and I still wasn’t…completely into it like I had been with other games in the past.
But then I heard Trevor tell Wade the story of ‘Little Trisha’ and it broke my heart so completely and utterly that I actually had to stop playing.
It was that story that was so emotionally driven that I had to eventually come back to the game and keep playing because I couldn’t get it out of my head. When Trevor showed up on Michael’s door step thats really the moment that I knew that they had a serious history and it wasn’t just because they had been robbing banks together! There was a lot more emotion about each other and between them that couldn’t be denied after I played that mission. As the game continued I started to have these thoughts of ‘Oh man, Trevor totally loves Michael and is acting like a scorched girlfriend’. I laughed at it at first but then I started to really see that it went both ways. I began to notice the same tones in those two that I notice in some of my friends who are dating or married, or whatever.
So really I guess it was Trevor who shoved his love for Michael in my face and made me see it through to the end and write fanfiction and come onto tumblr and meet all you wonderful people. So, to answer your question in a nut shell Anon, I blame Trevor.
