Female figures and Grand Theft Auto 5
Some gamers feel certain female characters were amazing in previous games and they’d like to see these characters return in future games, although there are people that point out certain games were never given the chance to feature a female as the protagonist, and some fans want GTA 5 to change this.
Not everyone feels the same about a female lead in gaming, but should it really make a difference? In our opinion the gender of the character doesn’t enter our mind when playing games, in most cases, but some gamers feel gender has everything to do with the game especially when it’s as lawless and violent as GTA 5 is likely to be.

Each of these choices has been given a little explanation, which can be seen in the above article.
Should we see female dominance in Grand Theft Auto 5?
