Agree. I hate the mf, and the way how writers pushing him everywhere.
Hell, if you wanted him so bad, should just make the whole game about him. Make him the main character.
And for those who like him - try to put yourself on V's place. Would you like the brain cancer that killing you, constantly trolling, and making fun of you? I wouldn't.
I wanted him out of V's head the moment I met him.
I understand why most of you guys hate him. I mean Johnny isn't exactly likeable at first or at all depending on how you treat him. But I actually really started to like him near the end of the game.
To be fair It's not like he has any choice in the matter of the chip killing you and actually tries to help you stop it.
And there are bits in the game where l felt he had changed somewhat. For example his side quest where you visit his grave he admits he ruined every good thing in his life and everything he did was rendered pointless in the end anyways. He fucked up everything and in that moment he feels it.
After that mission he can even express concern for V. In my game after I did his other side quest where you let him do one last concert with his crew he tells you how he regrets it. He says something along the lines of this was a mistake and I shouldn't have requested this because in the time it took to do all this for V we could've done something to stop the chip.
I just wish they could've followed all this through in an end where Johnny redeems himself of something. Fulfills his promise to V that he gave with the dogtags and wipes himself to save V.
To be fair I played as a guy and I completely understand why some of you are upset with how he treats V at the beginning especially if you played female V.
No hate just my reasoning on why I liked Johnny.
Also agree the game does force him on you cuz even if you treat him like shit they still act like buddies. It's weird. There should've been dialog differences based on your relationship with him but you know it's just one of those things missing.
