Complex Says: Developers heavily sought after the plain clothes, anti-hero which set the stage for Grand Theft Auto games. Claude from GTA 3 looked like he had just rolled out of bed, threw on his shoes and jacket, and went out looking for trouble. His grooming became a staple for other heroes. The 5 o’clock shadow has been the beard of choice for several heroes since Claude and it continues to be.
