The only people I can imagine finding the title humourous are those younger than 12

*standing in playground*

"Hey, have you heard the title of the new GTA game coming out?"

"No, what's it called?"

"The ballad of GAY Tony!"

"OMFG, seriously? I'm not buying that, if I buy a game with the word gay in it i'm technically gay by default."

*sniggering*

*sustained laughter*

And so on...


That's the exact reason why I'm not buying it anyway...

Whoever wants to be the guy who makes a game about a black man wielding a chain-gun, mowing down white-people, go right ahead.

Well, actually, i don't think that R* would make fun of fags... to much negative PR.. eg HATE SPEAK. or whatever, same reason you didn't get a lot of black jokes in GTA-sanandreas.




Also, the main character isn't gay.


First of all, Rockstar makes fun of everyone "fag" or not. Within the first few missions of San Andreas the main characters and his black friends go to KFC for Chicken. I don't doubt that TBOGT will have campy characters with stereotypical gay attitudes, but like many are saying Gay Tony isn't exactly the most flaming stereotype you can get. Negative PR was never a concern of theirs. If it was then they wouldn't have put in the option to murder officers, the elderly, gays, blacks, because they all would bitch anyway, nor would there be the first penis appearing in a video game in TLAD.

To them they are creating a very real world, and the real world does include people who embrace stereotypes, but they are also focusing on the majority of us who aren't the stereotype.

Florian was flaming, and flamboyant. That was pretty stereotypical.
Remy was pretty over the top as well.

Exactly, and I'm sure Playboy X and Fat Black Hookers arent the most fair interpretation of black people. Its Rockstars whole jist to make a few stereotypes since as I said, they exist in reality to an extent. But they also noted the necessity to offset stereotypes with realistic portrayals, hence Gay Tony.

Don't forget that while it was never confirmed, it was very heavily hinted that Elizabeta was a lesbian. Although she was kind of a bull-dyke, so I guess that's still stereotypical...

Well we all know she liked the vagina, meet Marta. Who spent a hot night with her, also didn't she dance with a woman at the party? Carmen? I forget who, but regardless the sex with marta "hint" was just obvious tongue.gif

I actually agree, Jamaicans were portrayed quite realistically. In regards to how Jacob references Jah and rastafarianmism and how we really can barely understand patwa tongue.gif
