i consider niko to be more tragic than johnny if you chose the deal ending. johnny lost a lot of friends, but they were all gangsters who lived dangerously. when niko says, "roman, never hurt anyone..." he's saying that roman did not deserve to die and wasn't supposed to die because he didn't live a criminal life like niko and others IMO
Well they're both innocent victims of Niko's lifestyle. Kate or Roman.
Roman's death I find almost less tragic because he would have died anyway if not for Niko.
As Trevor's final boss instead of justSpoilerlike an idiot... I feel like the could've used The Lost a lot more into the story than just the f*cking beginning, did they rush it too much and decided just to kill of Johnny?? Or did Rockstar just wanted to prove how much of a badass Trevor was by single-handily kill The Lost? It would've definitely been a better story than f*cking Devon...
I didn't even like Johnny, but the way they treated his character was extremely horrid writing. The Lost and Damned died at the end of that DLC. Johnny left behind his past, he showed promise. But instead of getting his business together, Rockstar decided to move him, and the entire DEAD Lost and Damned crew out in the rear end of nowhere for some reason. Luis and Tony would've made a lot more sense to make a cameo in this game, because L.A. has a pretty decent nightlife from what I've seen.
Not mentioning becoming completely into drugs despite being against it in TLAD.
I feel as though Jonny was only put into V so that someone made a cameo, and then they killed him, just like that. Pretty f*cking sh*tty, that really annoyed me, they could have killed any stupid biker, not the damn protagonist of IV TLAD, and the way he got killed was dumb, it's just like 'Really?' Jonny was ruthless and then gets chased down by one damn guy!
Stupid, stupid, stupid.
I dunno. I think they did more than just throw him in. If they wanted to just make a cameo, they could have had Johnny show up to kill Trevor because he was stealing his meth business.
Instead, they made a point about how tragic Johnny's life had become.
A major theme of GTAV is "What happens when you finish the GTA missions?" Trevor is what happens when you can't get out, Michael is what happens when you get out, and Franklin is on the same road as Michael and Trevor.
Johnny's message is, "you can't always escape the game's consequences by winning."
