Top 5 anti-heroes in video games
2. Tommy Vercetti
Game(s): Grand Theft Auto: Vice City
Tommy Vercetti was the first speaking protagonist of Grand Theft Auto. Since that was a big deal on its own, Rockstar didn’t seem to bother giving him a lot of depth. If you compare him to San Andreas’ Carl Johnson and GTA4’s Niko Bellic, the latter 2’s personal lives are explored, which makes them look more human, and therefore more innocent. All we know about Tommy Vercetti on the other hand, is that he’s a mobster and he recently got out of prison, making him look more villain-like, which makes him one of the most anti-heroic characters of Grand Theft Auto. Also, let’s not forget the obvious influence of Scarface on Vice City.
