This thing looks epic... and features what appears to be cameos from some well-known Grand Theft Auto games. Rockstar's good at many things, and producing hype is one of them. I'm pumped for GTA V after watching that trailer, even though — as Mark over at Kotaku, who more or less stayed up all night waiting for it notes — it's not even really clear who you'll be playing as.
There seems to be a few well-known faces in there, from GTA IV's Roman Bellic to what may be San Andreas' Carl Johnson fleeing from the cops. As for the protagonist, Vice City's Tommy Vercetti seems a likely choice, but i'm going to throw out a dark horse contender — could that be GTA II's Tony Cipriani? [Kotaku]
