    THE RYDER PROJECT 5 days ago

    Almost everybody knows that Ryder is the best character. On the other hand Ryder is too powerful to call him a side character. Therefore Ryder is definitely a main character. Maybe this is the reason why he is not on the list.

    are you kidding me ??? big smoke 10#, lazlow 5#, lazlow is not even a side character he did not even made something in the game world he's not even a minor character, lazlow is radio character in all gta games and only appeared in gta vice city as artwork and appeared phisicly on gta 5
    lammar funniest character ? what about og loc, what about real badman, what about the truth, what about maccer, what about catalina, what about the jounalist in gta liberty city stories, what about roman they are all way better and funnier than lammar
    tenpenny is side character ? is that joke, he's antagonist, the enemy
    what about wozzie ? the blind triad leader who can shoot and drive and helped cj a lot, he deserves to be on the list
    am i the only one here who thinks this list is little bit bad ?

    Why the fuck is Lamar higher than Lil Jacob???? Jacobs a much cooler and reliable guy. A loyal man who treats you wuth respect. Lamars just a dumb street holligan that Franklin has to clean up from time to time. He doesnt deserve to be on this list.
