Are people still going on about this? I think some of you need to draw the line between fiction and reality. If it pains you so much, go play TLAD and pretend none of this ever happened.
Not everyone shares your views on Johnny or the Lost, most people really couldn't care less. You make mention to Luis, if he would have been killed I'm sure you wouldn't give a sh*t. This is how the majority of GTA fans feel towards Johnny's death. The only ones still holding on are the biker wannabes who truly believe that the Lost are their "brespects to the dead. He claimed that he joined in with some words of his own and shed a few tears too. Really now?

Let it go. I don't know what you are expecting. Rockstar to come out and say, "Sorry brothers, Johnny isn't actually dead and the Lost control Blaine County. Lost MC for life?" Give me a f*cking break. Some of the best movies have the protagonist dying in the end, the shock value it brings is part of good film making.
The princess doesn't always find the prince and the hero doesn't always save the world.
Sick of assholes like you, f*ck you
Can you at the very least give any reasons as to why you're sick of people like him, rather than flaming him?
It's been explained plenty of times which is why they are sick of it but why not? Let's do this again.
It's not the fact he died, it's HOW. No one expects Rockstar to say 'Hey Johnny didn't actually die from the stomping' or whatever. It's the fact a man who we played as and shared his story and amongst other things broke into a prison with the sole purpose of killing one man and got away with it.
It's the fact that what happened in GTA V goes so far against Johnny's character and all of it was engineered and written for the sole purpose of making Trevor seem like a bad ass. It reads exactly like how someone would write their self inserted original character in fanfiction killing a main character they don't like.
Yes, it could have happened that way but again like I said earlier it's equally likely Johnny also could have worked for a secret organization for the sole purpose of bringing down corruption which is why he joined the Lost in the first place rather than the army like his brother. Neither is good writing, but it's just on the other end of the spectrum.
It's not about 'biker wannabes' either. The Lost or more specifically Johnny, Terry, Clay and Jim go against the usual stereotypes which considering they are already part of an outsider group is saying something and their characters are very deep in consequence. Three of these guys are then killed off by a character who has less depth than a kiddy pool in a way that makes Johnny as significant as a minor character and Terry and Clay random mooks. That is going to trigger a sense of injustice
Sure not everyone likes Johnny and the depth those characters brought but you just don't isolate a part of your audience like that, so killing Luis off in a similar fashion would probably trigger a similar reaction from the crowd who liked him. If Trevor was the antagonist who we were meant to kill at some stage, this writing would make perfect sense but it's the reverse. In all honesty though, I hate Trevor more for
than for what he did to Johnny and a certain ending in V doesn't resolve the plot so that's not exactly satisfying either.
All 93Sean93 is sick of is people unable to understand just why we are so pissed off and saying blanket statements while completely failing to understand why we are pissed off in the first place. I'm not saying he isn't entitled to his opinion in not giving a sh*t about Johnny but some people do and as I said, you just don't isolate a part of your audience like this.
