Rockstar is known for insulting most things.
But that mainly goes for Grand Theft Auto, for obvious reasons.
But still there also a lot of honorable cops that rockstar made.
Here's the list..
#10: Captain Espinoza (red dead redemption)
To those who don't know, he's the fat guy with the eye patch from the Mexican army.
Unlike the other Mexican army leaders, he's the only one who actually DOSE believe he's helping his country, and that the rebels are terriests.
So.. He's the only one who's actually fighting for a "reason".
But considering he's still a dick in every "other" way.
He's stuck as number 10..
#9: Patrolmen (La noire):
These are the types of police uniforms that EVERYONE knows.
There the blue uniforms with the big hats and small ties.
Unlike Grand Theft Auto patrolmen.
The ones in La Noire, don't just sit around pbeing fat and lazy all day.
They actually take there jobs seriously.
#8: Rusty Gollaway (la noire):
Sure he's a alcoholic, somewhat lazy, woman hating, old douchebag.
But at least he's still better than friggin Roy Earl.
7: Wilson Da Silva (Max Payne 3)
I don't know much about him.
But he becomes one of your bosses, and a major character of the game.
That's good enough for me.
#6: Stefan Bekowsky (la noire):
He's your first partner as a detective.
And although he's jealous of him at first, he is quick to grow a friendship with Philips.
He's probably my favorite partner, as he's the only one who dosen't hold a grudge against woman.
Plus there's abit of an inside joke, that he is always calling Cole "kid" even though he's younger than Cole.
5: Dave Norton (grand theft auto 5):
It's exteremely hard to have a honorable cop character, in a game series that is all about HATING cops.
But Davy is as close as the series has ever gotten (as far as I know).
Sure he is constantly forcing Michael into doing his dirty work.
But in his defense, that was probably part of the orginal deal.
And more importantly.
He never betrays you. In fact, even though he is always claiming that Miichael is only there so that he can be a human shield against gunfire, you can kinda tell he secretly cares for Mike as a person.
4: Captain Donnelly (la noire);
He's more feared the respected it.
But I consider that to be more or less a good thing.
Plus.. He always "welcomes" your suspects before you interrogate them.
#3: Max Payne (Max Payne):
Anti hero, ex cop.
What could be better! ;)
Espically when they give slow motion dives during combat scenes, and has the voice of James McCaffree.
#2: Leigh Johnson (Red Dead Redemption):
He is everything Edgar Ross ISN'T.
A badass cop who, most of the criminals killed are from him himself, while Ross would just force Marston into doing it all, and then betray him in the end.
#1: Cole Phelps (la noire):
The main protagonist of La noire, who was rather arrogant and self centred joining the war, earning disrespect from his "buddies".
And one of them "Sheldon" couldn't take it anymore and shots Phelps in the chest.
Causing Cole to go home early.
Cole, realizing how bad of a leader he was during the war, needed to redeem himself and did so by joining the police force, and before long, he became famish for his talented detective work.
But what makes him #1 one, is that he could care less about the fame.
He only wants to do the right thing.
So yeah. He's one of my most favorite protagonists. And I was mad he cheated on his wife.
But, at the same time.
Think about all that he's been though.
Especially during the war.
War is hell!
As the saying goes..
