* HoYay: However brief their on-screen interactions are, there appears to have been some of this between John and [[spoiler:Javier Escuella. John will tell Abraham Reyes that he and Javier were close, and apart from Bill or Dutch who does little more but belittle or act pissed at John, he and Javier will chew each other out as if they're unhappy about how things turned out between them. In order to make John drop his guard, Javier will even say "I always loved you". ]]

** With the release of the DLC, free roam games would not spawn any [=NPCs=] anywhere, which meant that merely approaching a gang hideout would cause it to instantly complete. Replay ad nauseum for infinite XP.

** Shooting at certain NPCs will make them hostile. Sounds reasonable, right? Well, try averting a bandit raid on Armadillo and not deal with the angry NPCs you might have accidentally shot at during the gunfight. It gets really annoying when the enemies seem to purposefully situate themselves in front of the NPCs.

* {{Fanon}}: Many, if not most, fans cling to [[spoiler:a ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoV'' EasterEgg heavily implying that Jack somehow manages to subvert his DownerEnding after all]]. Understandable, given the sheer DarknessInducedAudienceApathy here.

* DarknessInducedAudienceApathy: Despite John himself being portrayed as a sympathetic character, one might have this reaction to this game, seeing as very few of his good deeds go unpunished. The only sympathetic character of all of the cast who didn't get apathetic is Jack, John's son. [[spoiler:But by the time the game's ending came around, he just became as bad as John himself after he killed Ross, and basically became the very man John didn't want him to become. One can only hope the sequel can have a flicker of light pierce this trope.]]

* UnintentionallyUnsympathetic: Quite a few players feel this way toward [[spoiler:Ross]] during the epilogue mission "Remember My Family." It tries to convey a NotSoDifferent side to him via [[spoiler:his wife and brother]]. But if anything, it only makes said players hate him even more, feeling like it only gives him extra {{Hypocrite}} points regarding [[spoiler:all of his horrible treatment toward John's own innocent family]] -- to the point where some, if not most, of said players have actually decided to [[spoiler:kill said wife and brother]] to make [[spoiler:Ross]] feel the same pain that he uncaringly caused [[spoiler:Jack]].

** Sometimes when whistling for your horse, they run right past you, and you have to chase after it. It's annoying when it happens, but the idea that John Marston, the biggest badass in the west, has to run after his stubborn horse.

Added DiffLines:

** The horse you get with negative honor. It's slower than the top-tier horses, and has a tendency to randomly replace your current horse upon whistle. It's speciality is that it runs just as fast on roads and off-road, but it's better to just use a faster horse on roads to escape opponents.

* EvilIsSexy: Some female gamers find [[spoiler:[=DeSanta=]]] this. It might have to do with [[ArousedByTheirVoice his voice actor being Hector Bustamante.]]

* DisappointingLastLevel: Or well, disappointing last ''missions''. [[spoiler:Once John's reunited with his family, the game continues as the only missions left are just John helping out around the farm and going on hunts with Jack, which had most players bored. Then it's defied again as the very last mission turns out to be John having to defend his family against the army sent by Ross to kill them, with John sacrificing himself while Abigail and Jack escape.]]
