Looking into the GTA V trailer

With the launch of the GTA V trailer hitting the web today most major video game sites have begun a delicate dissection of this trailer.  I have watched it at least a good 15 times already and find something new each time.  While I could speculate about how there is a dog, a blimp flying overhead, or even the return of what seems to be the muscle beach from San Andreas; one particular sequence of this trailer excited me more than the others.  That sequence is a close up of what could be our main character and his striking resemblance to that of a one Tommy Vercetti from one of my favorite GTAs, Vice City.

Looks awfully familiar to me

GTA V seems to be set in contemporary times so it really wouldn’t be too farfetched for Mr. Vercetti to be wrapping up his life of crime and settling down somewhere far away from Vice City (like the opposite coast).  If it is Tommy he would probably be pushing late 50s or early 60s so he is probably looking to cut back or cut out his gun toting shenanigans.  Can you really walk away from a life of crime though?  Most crime related narratives seem to say no and think not, so it will be interesting to see how close our main character comes to attaining his dream of a normal life.  I am unsure whether or not I will find something as intriguing as this part of the trailer, but if I feel compelled to over speculate about something else you all will be the first to know.

Are you making a triumphant return Mr. Vercetti?

We have already asked this, but what do you think about the trailer?  Did it live up to or exceed your expectations?  Did it let you down?  Let us know your thoughts in the comments section and also let us know if you too found anything interesting or subliminal about the GTA V trailer.  As always you can follow us on Twitter @GamersAbstract and like us on Facebook for more content.
