GTA 5 is one of the best open-world games out there. And I will say that again and again until GTA 6 is released. The reason is simple that you’ll never get bored in this game. Use cheats, play missions, or even switch your characters in GTA 5.

And even if that is not exciting enough for you, become a CEO in GTA 5.

There is a lot one can do in this game. For me, this game has eaten away hours on end. It is one of my guilty pleasures.

Anyways, I’ll not go on about how much I love this game. We’ll just discuss changing your characters here.

So, let see how you can too change your character and play either Trevor, Franklin, or Micheal.

Although their stories have been different, in the end, all are criminals.

GTA V character Trevor

Trevor is a mentally unstable guy who is always intoxicated, i.e. on drugs. His life includes all the highs and lows. He started as a military pilot. Then, a weapon dealer. And he is finally forced to work under a FIB agent.

is a tough guy who wants to do extensive in life. But, fate has turned different for him, making him just a petty criminal.

Micheal has my sympathy. He used to rob banks and left robbery for his good. But, a lack of good and caring family has pushed him again back to his dark roots.
