I've seen several pictures apparently showing "all of the GTA characters" but they always conveniently leave out the characters from GTA 1, London, and 2. And now that GTA 6 has confirmed that they will have a playable female character, once again everyone has conveniently forgotten about GTA 1, London, and 2.

The common arguments I usually hear are: those games are bad and the selectable characters on those games are basically all the same anyway, with no discernible differences besides the portrait and no personalities to boot.
And to those arguments I say:
GTA 1 is a great game (I don't reckon much to GTA 2 though, and I've never really played London).
Claude didn't have a personality in GTA 3.
And sure, the only difference between the characters was the portrait, the colour of their skin, hair, and trousers. But do you really need more than that to make a character different? I mean, the difference between Sonic and Tails on Sonic the Hedgehog 2 was literally just the sprites. You couldn't even fly with Tails on that game, that was first implemented on Sonic the Hedgehog 3. And with a game as old, zoomed out, and low-res as the original GTA, a portrait meant a lot.
I mean, the fact that most people who played and enjoyed the original GTA, has their own favourite character on it, says it all.

(I can understand people not counting the female protagonists on the GBC version of GTA 2 though. I mean, that basically falls under obscure game trivia at this point.)
