    ^GTA V is taking a backseat to GTAO and I don't like it. I rather not have to play online to get the most out of this game.

    GQ: This game is an enormous hit. What does hearing something like $1 billion in sales mean to you? Shawn Fonteno (Franklin): A billion dollars, dude? I don’t even know how many zeros are in a billion dollars, man. [Laughs] Just to be tied to it with my likeness and my voice, that’s something that’ll go down in history with me. My grandchildren and my great grandchildren will see that. It’s like a historical moment for me, so it’s a good feeling. Steven Ogg (Trevor): Yeah, it’s pretty wild. I’m not a gamer and I’m not into that world, so I don’t know much about it. Obviously, doing it for three years I got to learn more about it, and I understand how huge it could be, but honestly it wasn’t until the release that I really got it. Even before the financial end of it, which I can’t grasp, seeing trucks in Tokyo with my face on them or the billboards in Brooklyn that were being hand-painted with Trevor’s face. That’s when the magnitude of this game started to sink in. It is a global thing. GQ: Ned, your son is eleven years old. Did he flip out when you told him you were going to be in Grand Theft Auto V? Ned Luke (Michael): He’s not going to play the game until he’s in college. [Laughs] GQ: But I’m sure he’s heard of it. He knows it’s a big deal. Ned Luke (Michael): Yeah, he knows it. All his buddies have it. I let him do a few missions with the sound off. [Laughs] But, yeah, he’s so thrilled. He thinks it’s the coolest thing ever. GQ: Steven, what about your son? Steven Ogg (Trevor): No, no. We’ve got copies of it and he wants to play it, but he’s just too young. The funny thing is, I’m from western Canada and my nephew is old enough to play it and he now has street cred. I’m like, “Really? Street cred in Alberta? What the fuck is that? What does that get you? A great Alberta Beef Burger or a twelve pack of maple donuts?” [Laughs] GQ: Shawn, in your TMZ interview you mentioned that Franklin is you and you are Franklin. How do you guys relate to each other? Shawn Fonteno (Franklin): [Laughs] We relate tremendously, man. I feel like changing my name to Franklin. Everything he’s doing, I’ve done it. I don’t want to put myself out there on blast, but I’ve done it. I’m an ex-gang member. I’m an ex-thief. I’m an ex-car stealer. I’ve done it. I know what it feels like to be on both sides of the gun, go to jail, et cetera. We’re tied together forever. GQ: What about you, Steven? You’re not crazy, right? You’re not totally Trevor, are you? Steven Ogg (Trevor): I like to call it a crazy little thing called… acting. [Laughs] It’s one of those forgotten arts in this culture. There’s a lot of talk nowadays about how “acting is you, you are who you are” but no, it’s acting. That’s my job. That’s what I do for a living. I’m an actor. [Laughs] GQ: Were there any concerns about working on game that’s gotten some criticism about its violence and treatment of women? Shawn Fonteno (Franklin): Nah, not at all. It has to be treated the same way as the movies. Scarface. Boardwalk Empire. You see all the same stuff that’s happening in these games in comic books and TV shows. It’s just a script. We’re having fun. They have to treat this the same as they treat the movies. Ned Luke (Michael): GTA is what it is. Anybody that expects anything different is fooling themselves. I love women. I’m crazy about them. I have a beautiful wife, who’s the greatest thing that’s ever happened to me, and I teach my son to respect women and other people’s position in the world, whatever it is.…People are always looking for something to hate on. If this is something for them to target and hate on, that’s their thing. I look at it as satire. GQ: Is there a stigma attached when you do voice work for video games versus film or TV work? Steven Ogg (Trevor): I want to take “voice acting” and send it up to space.…this was a motion capture performance. This was not me sitting in my underwear in a booth watching some character that was like Trevor and saying my lines. No. That was me up there in my motion capture suit with the camera directly in my face and the light in my eyes. It’s a huge thing. It’s not just voice acting. You put three years of your life into something like this and you certainly, if nothing else, want the recognition of what you’ve done—it is an entire performance that has been “captured”—your body, your face, and your voice. It wasn’t just three years of talking into a microphone. It was three years of shooting a movie that was motion captured. Shawn Fonteno (Franklin): It was totally different. Acting in front of the camera for film is totally different from acting in a big studio where you don’t where something is at and you have to imagine that it’s right there. You have to figure it out while they’re building stuff that looks like stuff, so it’s a totally different thing. You have to feel and visualize everything that you’re acting. It’s night and day. Ned Luke (Michael): Yeah, we’re actors. We’re not just “voice actors”. Steven Ogg is one of the most brilliant actors I’ve ever seen in my life.…For me, acting is acting. I don’t care if you’re just doing voice or live action or motion capture or what. Acting is acting. GQ: Have you gotten a chance to play the game yourselves yet? Shawn Fonteno (Franklin): Honestly, I just sat back and was tripping off of what was going on with the sales and how it was radiating through the pop culture and everywhere around the globe first. Then I finally sat down and started playing it, so now I’m halfway through it. It’s so interesting that I can’t put it down. It’ll be three in the morning and my wife is telling me to put it down. [Laughs] It’s so addictive. Steven Ogg (Trevor): That’s actually a special little anecdote. When we were trying to put in GTAV, much less play it, we put it in the Xbox 360 and I was like, “Oh, this is such a beautiful moment.” There we are, my son and I, sitting there and we can’t figure out this fucking thing. [Laughs] Okay, we’ve got 2.7 gigabytes, gigabang, gigawhatever. [steven slips into full on Trevor mode] What the fuck is this?! Okay there’s two discs. Put this one in first. Okay. What the fuck? Where to load it? I don’t know. Load it onto here. Manage storage. Fuck! I just want to see the opening. I’m going to cover his face and ears if it starts with Trevor jumping on a skull screaming, “Fuck! Fuck! Fuck!”—he’s not going to hear that…but he’s so excited, he just wants to see the opening (or anything). So I pick up the Bat phone and I call Rod [Edge - the director]. We FaceTime so he can help me figure this out. It was such a great scene. I’m in the country house with my son and we’re FaceTime-ing with the director of the game and his son, who’s an actual gamer, and we’re getting instruction on how to start the game. I’d show him the screen and he’d walk me through it. It was such a beautiful moment. [Laughs] GQ: Do you think the success of the game will lead to more TV and film work for you? Ned Luke (Michael): I hope so. [Laughs] I think that’s the goal of everything you do. Stanislavski said, “Love art in yourself, and not yourself in art,” and for me, that’s what acting is. It’s the only thing I want to do. I love it. I’ve been in this game for thirty years and nobody knows who I am. You have really hard times and you have really good years and you have years that you can’t feed your family and you have to sell cars. I gotta tell you, stealing cars is a hell of a lot more fun than selling them! [Laughs] GQ: How has your life changed since the game’s release? Shawn Fonteno (Franklin): [Laughs] I’m turning into a star, man! People are reaching out to me and are really appreciative of what I gave to the game. I feel good that I can make people happy with what they see in Franklin. I’m getting a lot of compliments and I’m loving it. Ned Luke (Michael): This has reawakened my imagination like nothing I’ve ever done before. Doing this game has made me a better actor than I ever was. You’ve got to understand, I was a bitter dude coming off four years of being out of the business. I went back to my hometown so my son could experience where I came from. You’re at my age and you don’t have a series or good representation, and then to come out and get into this? You better believe I’m recharged. GQ: Steven, is it harder or easier to play someone completely off the rails like Trevor? Steven Ogg (Trevor): It’s certainly fun because you just get to be nuts. The thing about Trevor, this character that I so love to play, is that he kind of represents the gaming world and this idea of pure escapism. He gets to be that guy who gets to say whatever he wants, to do whatever he wants, to fuck whatever he wants. Everyone has that fantasy, right? Trevor just does it. It’s very liberating. So, to play that, you basically have an impulse, you feel it, and you try it. There’s someone there to help you with when to pull back or let you know what doesn’t work, but it’s very freeing. I also love that people are recognizing his sense of humor. That was Trevor for me. Walk that line. Bring in the fucking intensity. Bring in the violence. But also, through that, find a sense of humor and allow people to laugh at it. When you do that, it sends that message that you’re not taking yourself too seriously. It’s a little wink. Three years of getting to do that? Yes, please! GQ: In that same vein, Ned, did you feel like you had a lot more creative freedom and input working on GTAV as opposed to the film and TV work you’ve done? Ned Luke (Michael): That might be the thing I’m most proud of on this deal—I was given so much freedom to become the guy. That’s a testament to all the guys that worked on the game. They’re so confident and have so little ego about what they’re doing. They want the game to be the best that it can be, same as me. It was the most fun I’ve ever had. It was like going back to acting class, being able to be so free and not locked in. I’m just thankful for the faith and trust they had in me to do it. And that I didn’t overdo it and piss them off and have them fire me. [Laughs] I actually thought this was worth the read.

    I've seen Analog Drum before. He's actually fucking amazing at it. I don't think he's self taught, and if he is he's got at close to a decade of experience to back it up. I still haven't forgotten all those days we wasted on RockBand, sweet cheeks.

    The saving cars issue you are having is an ingame glitch, Rockstar has asked that people avoid saving cars until they fix this issue. Also cars do not disappear faster than they did in IV, I've noticed they stay around quite longer. Besides that your post had nothing to do with Pre-release Discussion. You free to join everybody else on the Post Release Discussion sub-forum. I dnt care about a pre release discussion I just stated the car saving cause I seen safehouses and put it there sorry if that sounded mean and if they fix the glitch do I have to go out and buy another copy of the game What ConQueSteD was trying to say is, we already have a topic in the Post Release threads about this glitch: You may not care, but we do. Chances are very good that someone else has had the same problem as you and has already mentioned it, so please look around or use the search function first. Secondly, think about your question: if they fix the problem, why would you have to buy another copy of the game?

    Ok, this answers the question, R* have said that you can Not buy property in single player, it's only for online. http://www.lightchan...perty-in-gta-v/ They really should have put that in the online trailer, rather than the game play trailer.

    Now I'm getting into this a little deeper I'm worried about how easy I'm finding everything... Missions haven't been a stretch to complete at all... Using vehicles as most people have noted is easy and the chances of dying or failing anything I attempt seems to be very slim. While some people like this, I don't. I like a challenge and so far this isn't. I'll admit I'm not that deep into the game yet so I hope it gets tougher. Perhaps for future GTA's a "Difficulty" setting would be a nice addition.

    Make sure you bring your own car. The Ruiner they give you is shit. I used the Elegy I got from Social Club, but Franklin's Buffalo will take any car, if it's modded.

    @Handsome B Wonderful. I recommend investing in the company with the lowest Stock Price, when it's at it's lowest ( it should be the only company under $4.00 ). You should buy it when it goes down to $3.50, and then sell it when it goes up to $6-7 Dollars. This could take a while so I recommend maxing out the Stats for the characters, and getting tats/ haircuts/ clothes, customizing cars, or exploring the map in the mean time. Or if you want to do it the fast way ( which I recommend ), go and use the save feature at one of the character houses to fast forward the game 8 hours over and over ( which will speed up the days and weeks into a matter of minutes ). This will speed up the fluctuations of your companies Stock Price. Check your portfolio every so often to see whether the Share Price has risen high enough, and then sell the stock. Then use the Sleep Function again to speed up the process of the Stock Price decreasing back to $3.50, and then buy it again. After that do the whole process again ( waiting, then selling once the stock price has risen to $6-7 Dollars again ). This can be a little bit tedious and time consuming, so I recommend only using this method after you have a couple of Million Dollars to invest, it will make the whole money making scheme go much faster. So if you started by investing $2,000,000 at $3.50 a Share, then sell it for $7.00 a share, you will have $4,000,000. Invest it again, buying and selling for the same price you will now have $8,000,000, after that $16 Million....... then $32 Million, then $64 Million, then $128 Million, then $256 Million, then $512 Million, then $1,024,000,000 ( 1 Billion 24 Million Dollars ). So after reinvesting the money 9 times ( which would probably take some time ), you would eventually end up with over a Billion Dollars. Which is more than you would ever need. All it takes is some time and patience, and you can eventually make a lot of money on the Stock Market...

    There is a song on Radio Los Santos that features the lyrics:"I'm a fucking genius, look at my fucking penis." Every time I listen to that line, I get a mental image of Einstein with his tongue out as he flashes his shriveled old man penis at my brain camera. Oh those wacky contemporary hip-hopsters. When I was a kid, I listened to rap because those songs had words like fuck in them. In my teens I began to appreciate the rebellious angst of the likes of 2pac and public enemy. Now I rarely listen to hip-hop because it seems to be full of egomaniac assholes and Einstein dicks.

    I parachuted onto the top of the cable car with Michael, and as I was celebrating my success with a selfie, I fell off the side and plummeted to my death. As if that wasn't funny enough, in dying, michael's head got pushed up past his groin. He died looking like a human hamburger trying to suck itself off.

    playing trevor makes the actions you do more justified... trevor is the perfect GTA protag... plus he was non-stop hilarous and you can tell he was trying to be funny... it's just a different kind of funny that only GTA fans would get... simeon was hilarious, calling everyone who didnt buy a car racist against arabs... and jimmy had some great moments too... i think lamar might of been the best of the bunch tho...
