I recently played GTA 4 and TLAD from start to finish.
Back in 2013 when JK got his head stomped and Terry and Clay running like cowards, taken out by a single bullet from a pistol I was disappointed how Rockstar put them to an end.
Actually, Terry and Clay still have poor deaths.

Now my point is, the development of Johnny K between GTA 4 and TLAD.
Everything we see in 4 is a rough and rugged biker.
His appearance is grittier.
They changed Johnny to some tryna-be-niko-bellic-moral-wise, giving him a biker apparel to appeal to the masses and made him more accessible and acceptable for the masses.
It doesn't fit and I can't take him seriously.
He is against war? Then going all out.
HOW it ia executed...it just doesn't fit.
So, good thing they pushed him more into this directon...making him getting addicted to Ashley again.

Also Jim Fitzgerald, making him a coloured best friend of Johnny wheras he is a white patriot talking bout "ride like real Americans" to Niko during the subway chase.
It was to step away from the impression Johnny could be a racist.

R* didn't have the balls to go into this bold direction back then.
So, good thing they killed him off.

Didn't really see it as bold, I saw it as a way to establish Trevor and put him over, to me it was just rushed and inconsistent with the previous portrayal of the Lost.

It's good that Trevor Philips killed Johnny Klebitz.
The important bikers like Jim, Brian, Billy, Clay & Terry got killed coz of him.
Billy was ALWAYS good to Johnny. It was Johnny who kept opposing Billy. At last, when he couldn't defeat Billy by lobbying, he ratted him down. In tLaD, he got Billy, Jim & Brian killed.
In V, he got Terry & Clay killed!!!
He also ratted out Ray Boccino.
That's why the LS Chapter of TLMC said in a mission,
"Johnny Klebitz was never fit for the Lost man. Billy Grey was a good leader. Let it go, let's take a ride."

Billy was a junkie who was going to get the lost killed, Johnny made the right choice putting a bullet in him and burning down the club. IMO, I'd rather see John boy dead, than old and rotting, guy was brought down by Ashley and her drug problem, eventually he would've got on drugs as well.

I dont know why they'd put Ashley in the gang. She neither fought wars nor owns a BIKE! But sadly, she's considered as a biker.

Ashley was a pass around, Billy and almost everyone else had a turn with her, they also kept her safe but Johnny wasn't happy with her drug use.

I'd rather see John boy dead, than old and ratting.

Yes, exactly. Otherwise he would have ratted out more innocent people like Billy, Brian, Ray & Jim etc.
His death fits really good ;).

Well technically, Ray was innocent. Johnny K was the bad guy in this situation (hey, at least for once we got a protagonist that has the balls to rip off a mission giver for a big ass profit)

Wasnt Ray the one rat talking to the fed? That was the reason why Pegorino killed him, right? I mean, they kill Anthony and they still think there's still a rat in the family, and no way Phil was the one talking.

 

And even if he wasnt a rat at all, he was scumbag.

The criminal lifestyle Johnny, Terry, Clay and many other Lost bikers lived its not a surprise they'd be killed, Jason Michaels was killed for his relationship with a mob bosse's Daughter, Billy re-started the War with the Angels of Death, a war that had gotten many Lost members killed, Angus got crippled (lets end it at that).

I guess Johnny was better of being killed in sort of in his prime before he experienced the toll of his lifestyle leave him a weak and damaged old man, that leg and any other injury would just of gotten worse with old age, I understand why its seen as a stupid death for Johnny but actually makes sense, he was always weak when it came Ashley, she got in trouble and he is there to save her, he knew he needed to cut her off for good but he's too weak emotionally to do that, he still loves Ashley and Rockstar showed that in a literal sense with Johnny being weak and skinny and getting killed easily by a raging psychotic redneck known as Trevor Philips all because of his love for Ashley.

Raymond Boccino taught that backstabber Johnny, the biker scumbag a good leason that he wont forget in his life. It was all Johnny's fault. The Lost could really survive well if he had accepted Billy's orders. It's good that he's dead.
He ratted out 4 men & got ratted by ONE MAN, ONE MAN!
His Lost members too accept, "Johnny K was never a good leader of The Lost MC. Billy Grey was a real brother of Lost"
The other TLMC Mems also knew Johnny well. That's why they supported Brian rather than Johnny.
At last, a rat got caught up by a cat.

The Lost would not have survived with either Billy or Johnny as both were terrible leaders.
