Rockstar Games Sets Internet Ablaze with Grand Theft Auto V's "Michael. Franklin. Trevor." Trailer

By David Rodriguez

Rockstar Games simply has a unique ability to construct fantastic trailers with the perfect music to go with them (I guess that is why they are called Rockstar, hur hur).

The new trailer for Grand Theft Auto V is actually a combination of three separate trailers for each of the game’s protagonists: Michael, Franklin, and Trevor. Michael’s trailer depicts him as a level-headed guy who has everything, but is somehow still depressed and wants more action in his life. Much like Tony Montana or  Tony Soprano, he keeps reaching for more. Franklin and his storyline are essentially Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas “2.0,” but with the best music out of all three trailers. Trevor gets drunk, punches lots of people, and strips down to his underwear – all on seperate occasions.

I cannot wait to play this game.

Grand Theft Auto V is being developed primarily by Rockstar North and will be published by Rockstar Games for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on September 17th, 2013. PC and Wii U versions are being considered.
