I know this is late but I just finished the Lost and The Damned and saw what kind of guy Johnny is. The fact that he's caring for his friends and the gang just shows he is a great guy but that probably led to his death. Though I can't just stand the fact that he is killed so easily by a crazy old dude! I hate you Trevor, I am glad that I killed you! He raided a freaking prison to kill his crazy leader but dies from a bottle to the face and his head being stomp. I am just mad at that fact. What is your opinion?

To be fair Johnny made the big mistake of getting back with Ashley and got hooked on meth. So I'd doubt he'd be capable of what he was in TLAD with how much he's broken down.

It's not just you, lots of people, including me are disappointed how R* just made Trevor kill Johnny so easily without Johnny putting up a fight. Although, sometime after he moved to LS from LC he became heavily addicted to meth which changed his personality drastically in my opinion, which is why he didn't put up much of a fight.

I liked it, it shows how Ashley was his poison and led to his meth head finale in 2013. A strong man turned into the shadow of his former self. Powerful. Johnny has an underrated story. The fact R* didn't sugar coat it to ease the pain made me appreciate it more. I loved TLAD but I think is the perfect sad ending for him. Not everything ends happily. F*ck that hoe Ashley

Johnny redeemed himself in IV, then just went back to everything he escaped. He went back to meth, Ashley was back on meth, he was still tied in with the gang that was bringing him down...

 

My opinion? Trevor did him a favour. He was a terrible, boring, mithering curmudgeon and I found playing through TLAD one of the most depressing gaming experiences I've ever had. 

 

I was honestly glad to see him stomped to f*ck, and considering I think he and Trevor are the worst GTA protags of all time, I think that's really saying something.

I dunno, there have been more depressing gaming experiences than TLaD.

They needed to show how dangerous Trevor is, and how much fear he instills in others. Even a badass like Johnny is scared of him, because he knows him.

Everything this guy said. They didn't sugar coat it, this sh*t happens in real life, emotions (especially love) can leave a person blind. In TLAD he was rational for a minute, but also showed he loves and cares about Ashley, while she was nothing but a drug addict who was a lost cause. I hated him for it in TLAD, and hated every mission where you had to go rescue her. Unfortunately for Johnny, his love made him blind to see that he's following her into the abyss she's fallen in long time ago, and thus he ended up just like her. So it was quite a proper death and people really need to stop kissing his bald, stomped head and let it go.

It was the best written thing Rockstar has ever produced. The quality is up there with Shakespeare's writing.

I don't get why people are so mad.

 

Johnny is a shell of his former self. He is not Johnny anymore. He got easiley attracted and addicted to crystal meth. Blame it on his f*cking annoying bitch girlfriend Ashley, she got him into it. He changed when they moved to blaine county. He became a meth head. He was easiley distracted, and was obviously not a badass anymore.. The scary thing is: this could happen to anyone.

Should been that Russian pr*ck, f*cking the undercover agent and not whacking her. He is a rat, no doubt.

As for the meth overkill loser chap wearing nipple head, Johnny Kickstand. That bandit was clipped by a true outlaw, Trevor Phillips.
That's the best thing about V.

Never liked Johnny. Found him annoying as hell and trying too hard to be a badass. I actually liked Luis Lopez better and that's saying something.

 

And I'm pretty sure it was to show how insane and dangerous Trevor is by easily and mercilessly killing off a past protaganist from GTA IV (DLC).

I didn't liked what happened either, but stuff happens... 

 

But i'm not really surprised, of all the GTA IV protagonists, Johnny had it worst...it ain't really surprising that he ended up like that...

Yep. Definitely don't like you.

Johnny and Trevor are the best protagonists. Franklin is the worse, he's so boring to play as

You have no idea how upsetting this is to me, because I find you very attractive and was thinking about asking you out on a date.

Speaking of which, I think Johnny and Ashley could've used that book too. Might've prevented his rather crushing end.

I thought it was poetic. Trevor Phillips stamping on father time to at least try to make up for those hours of my life I lost playing through TLAD.

That scene was just a cheap shock value tactic to make Trevor look OMG CRAZY!!!  They had to force Johnny to act like a coward to make the scene work.  It felt as awkward as Franklin's behavior in endings A and B.  It's nothing more than poor writing.

f*ck Johnny, if he stop chasing them hoes real muthaf*ckas like Trevor wouldnt have to put people like him in check. But Trevor explained to him he had just seen a ghost of his dead friend and really wasnt having the best of days and the last thing Johnny should be worried about that moment was some cracked out whore.

Johnny would probably have never gone back with Ashley and become addicted to meth if his character stayed consistant, and even if he did, he would have beat the sh*t out of Trevor for f*cking his girl.

"BUTT METTH MAKS U A WEEK PUSY--"

Meth does not make you a weak pussy. In fact, it has the opposite effect and makes you more aggressive and unpredictable. So if anything, Meth-addicted Johnny would have cut Trevor's balls off or something.

And isn't Trevor always getting high on his own supply? Shouldn't he be the same "pussy" as Johnny? Either Trevor's fully a meth head or, at the very least, he does speed, which may not be as strong as meth, but it's pretty much the same drug. I always hated the "Johnny turned into a pussy from drugs, don't do drugs kids!" argument.
