My biggest question is, Why the fu*k were the Lost MC in San An to begin with? It was established in TLAD's canon that the AOD were every where throughout the States, and elsewhere in the world, whilst the Lost MC were largely contained to New Alderney, and had a smaller Chapter in Broker. Why did Rockstar forget about The AOD in all of this?
Interesting topic, though all seems a little redundant. As much as I hate it, there's no way I can ignore the events of V.
And that's one reason I hate Trevor. He's not a well developed character; he's a badass because rockstar and all other characters say so. Because he murders innocent defenceless people needlessly. Because through him rockstar decimated TLAD. This is why I chose option A. Trevor needs his comeuppance. He should have been the antagonist in v.
Where is Johnny in 2015? Well to me he left town. He left LC, the lost, and everyone. So to me he wouldn't be in Blaine county, because he wouldn't rejoin the lost.
But for those of you that read my fanfics (in my sig), he kind of rebuilds the lost. So maybe if you counted my stories as canon, that would explain WHY he got back with the MC.
Been playing V again to refamiliarise myself with the story, becaus I'm writing a gta V fanfic. I looked into making Johnny survive, with intense injuries and permanent brain damage, or that he pulled an Ethan Hawk and arranged someone to replace him with cosmetic disguises, so Johnny terry and clay all survived, but even then, it's a bit of a stretch. I just can't see why they couldn't have made ur AOD the 'bitch' gang that Trevor fights, the Lost was always a smaller outfit so it'd make sense for Trevor to use them as allies, against the AOD. JK is only in V because rockstar were too lazy to write Trevor as a better character - like Marston for example. He's a badass but not just because we're told he is. Trevor is always referred to as crazy and as this beast, and I'm like 'why?' Johnny was a beast but never were we 'told'
We were shown.
I just wish re lost, jk, terry and clay were friends with Trevor - he has no friends. He manipulates people and he's a horrid character. Having JK Etc as pals would at least show him to have some loyalty and whathaveyou, so that's where I wish Johnny ended up, at least.
Rockstar trying to be shocking. The shock factor didn't work for me, just created a dislike for Trevor that I can't come back from. He's seriously one of the worst characters in any GTA I've played. His morals are contradicted, the narrative tries too hard to tell
us he's crazy; there is so much dialogue about him it's stupid.
What I've always loved about gta was seeing characters again and having them part of the story. The lost serve no purpose that the AOD couldn't - the AOD would make more sense but no, rockstar had to play the dumb shock tactic. I honestly feel it'd work better for the lost and Trevor to be ALLIES. Having friendly characters as Trevor would help his story and character devil end
Unfortunately rockstar (they said this) deemed it wise to create w main character based wholly on the way kids play the game. Niko was a well built character - from a writers perspective. He had depth as did most iv characters. That people badmouth that game is another reason why Trevor exists and I fear that like Marston, Johnny is representing of something.
Johnny is the iv era, the story driven game (iv was story driven, perhaps why people found it boring - people can't appreciate good writing, instead needing explosions and insanity). Trevor is the modern childish gamer and this era. While v has some good aspects of the story, it's too short and too shallow to actually be 'good'. Trevor moaning about Michael gets old real quick. Franklin is underused, to the point I wonder why he's even there. Michael has problems and I feel is the best developed character. Johnny was
a well developed character, but rockstar f*cked that up. I can't believe for a moment JK went back to drugs and even with Ashley was too much a stretch. The lost was disbanded, gone. That they somehow restarted it and wiped out the AOD (a nation wide club; a handful of guys took ou hundreds of thousands of bikers? Yeah right) is just stupid IMO
The lost should have appeared as big characters trying to survive against the overpowering AOD. Trevor could then have been written to have at least one human trait - being able to relate. He'd set up a business agreement with the lost and help them. The AOD would never not be the bigger club IMO but Johnny could have been a really well used character. Blaine county is perfect for bikers, and having the lost as friends would be a nice thing I think. They would distribute his drugs. They would steal his guns. Making Johnny and Trevor FRIENDS would have opened the door to more story options and more insight into Trevor's personality, anchoring him to the ground.
He is far too OTT in my eyes. It's like rockstar tried too hard.
I know the fan base is split as always but imagine if Tommy v was killed. Or niko. Some might like it but it'd be stupid. It's even implied that niko is likely dead. Romans apparently buried under the sea (nothing more than a reference to be fair). Luis will probably be dead, too. I suspect gta vi will likely reveal Franklin to be dead. Why the need? Instead of going for cheap shock value to lazily show a character as 'bad ass' which only works on idiots and children, why not create something more complex? Antagonism doesn't always have to mean death in the end.
