I think at this point you know what youre going to get. And considering the fact that most people just run around these games killing and causing mayhem... the fact that the characters have no redeemable qualities doesnt really seem like a big issue to me.
The characters are a representation of the gamer. Especially Trevor, who just wants to fuck shit up.
It's a strange view on the game.
GTA games you are always a criminal. The game encourages you to be basically a monster so why should you care if the characters stories show them to be scumbags?
My favorite GTA San Andreas my CJ had a kill count of over 4000 people. CJ was a likeable guy but in a GTA game I never ever try to play as saintly criminal.
