Since it's explained that LS and Blaine county aren't all of San Andreas is the HD era, that the AOD exists in other parts of the state. Being based on the Hells Angels, I'm pretty sure they would originate from San Fierro or whatever the GTA equivilennt of Oakland is. This is another reason why I would love GTA VI to be based on northern California (SA) in the 70's, they would deal with the origins of the AOD, much like the Hells Angels in that area during the 70's.
The biggest problem was not that johnny died, it was how out of character he was when Trevor killed him. Infact the only character trait left from TLAD was his love towards Ashley, which already back then got Jim killed.
Morehowever R* broke their own lore just so that Trevor could kill Lost members for 3-4 missions. Piss poor writing.
In GTA IV it is mentioned that The Angels of Death originated in San Andreas. However in GTA V there's not one Angel of Death left to be seen. And it's crawling with Lost members.
At the end of GTA IV there were only 4 notable (Johnny, Clay, Terry and Angus) lost members left. Most died in the war against the AoD or the lost civil war of Johnny vs Brian. So the question is: "How they **** did Johnny manage to totally obliterate any and all AoD presence in SA with only so few Lost members left?" How could Johnny get so many new members to the Lost, kill all AoD members and at the same time grow so weak in only five years?
I expected the AoD to have been Trevor's enemies, simply because it made sense. R* threw that sense out of the window for what? To show us a lame Cameo of Johnny so that Trevor may have something to kill before he finds Micheal. That is it.
The other Cameos were done allot better. I loved that Marnie went from a coke whore to a respected Epsilon member, or that it was finally explained that the LC Paper contact was infact a member of the IAA.
It is mentioned by a Lost memeber in the Random event "Prisoner Lift 1" that the AoD's are finished and a myth. Ofcourse that is only one guy saying this, yet surprisingly I'm pretty sure this is the only time in the game that the AoD's are even mentioned.
