John Johnson is the main character of the Football megapacks, first appearing in the Football Season episode. John is the default name for the character, and can be customized. He is not seen or mentioned much outside of the football packs.
John appears to be the main character in this episode. In this episode, John has four goals. Becoming the star football player, getting good grades, becoming popular and finding the perfect girlfriend. He arrives at Centerscore High in a beaten up truck and is quickly greeted by popular cheerleader Beth. John and Beth flirt together, although when star quarterback Adam, who had been on a couple of dates with Beth before, spots John flirting with Beth, he immediately beats John up. Another girl who John meets is Raven. A goth girl with not much friends. John first meets Raven when she stands up for him while Adam is beating him up. If John chooses to fight Adam back, Raven will consider him as a typical immature jock although if he tries to reason with him, Raven will think different.
On week 1, John has three options on how to spend his Saturday night. He can either go to the beach bonfire party Beth invited him to, or the goth concert Raven invited him to. Or he can just forget about them both. If John goes after Beth, he will be dating her and not see Raven for the rest of the game, but if he dates Raven, he will date her and not see Beth for the rest of the game. John will most likely have a good relationship with Beth or Raven if he is able to impress them on dates, but on week 4 the person he is dating will break up with him. Beth will break up with him because she is afraid of commitment and Raven because she is embarrassed as it spreads around the school John spent the night at her house. During the time John and his girlfriend are broken up, John's best friend Howard will invite him to the school play to check out other girls. If John goes to the school play, he will meet actress Lisa. John has an option to date Lisa. If he does date Lisa then he will not see Beth or Raven for the rest of the game. If John dates Lisa, they will have a relationship til the final week where Lisa leaves to do some filming in L.A but comes back for the homecoming dance. If John does not date Lisa, he has a choice to get back together with Beth or Raven and if he does, he will eventually settle down with one of them. If John does not date Beth, Raven or Lisa by the end, then Howard's girlfriends Elliana will introduce John to a crazy actress named Mona who he will take to the homecoming dance if not dating the other girls.
John has other goals other than dating. One is football. John will make the football team no matter what, although the position he has to try and get is Adam's backup quarterback. John will compete against Adam's best friend Bryce for this spot. If John does not get backup quarterback, he will get wide receiver. John's main goal in football, however, is to beat Wilson High, Centerscore's rivals. The way John can improve his football skills is by working out in his spare time. If John works out a lot, this will help him in the football mini games and be able to lift things such as dumbbells and cheerleaders. Working out a lot will also improve his chance of beating Wilson High.
Another one of John's goals is popularity. A good way John can be popular is by watching TV in his spare time so he can keep up with the latest stuff. John will also have to try and keep on the right side of popular cheerleaders Paula, Taylor and Amanda. John can also become popular other ways by doing things such as cutting class, eating a lizard tail (in resemblance to Centerscore's mascot) and signing Taylor's younger brother, Elmo Vale's football as Elmo is John's biggest fan. John's main popularity goal is by winning Homecoming King at the end. Watching TV will also help John get voted homecoming king. If John is dating Beth and wins homecoming King, Beth will be the homecoming Queen. If he is dating anyone else, the homecoming Queen will be Paula. If John doesn't become king, it will be the rich football player Zach.
John's final goal is grades. John's dad makes a deal with him that if he gets 3.0 as his GPA at the end of the semester then he will get a new car. John can earn grade points by doing lots of homework. Another way is getting 3/3 on his quiz on Monday. John will be quizzed on English, Math and has an elective between History or Biology. If John does not cut class with the popular people, he will also earn extra GPA points.
If John also plays correctly, he will become friends with Adam by the end of the episode. It is revealed that Adam's brother died in a car crash which is why he is the way he is.
Big Man on CampusEdit
In this megapack, John has graduated from High School and is now in college. Bryce, Chuck, Beth, Raven and Adam have also graduated. John's main goal in this episode is to make the coolest frat on campus, the MAN (Mu Alpha Nu) frat. It is revealed Chuck and Adam had graduated 1 year before the others and Chuck is already in the MAN frat. Adam, however, has now quit the football team and is studying poetry as he thinks it is a better way to express his depression of his brothers death rather than aggressively show them on the football field. Chuck will be trying to help John and Bryce make the MAN frat. The head of the MAN frat is James.
John still has an option to date Beth, Raven, Lisa or stay single although if he dates Lisa she will not appear at all as she is said to be in LA filming. It will not affect the game much on who John dates, just whoever he does date in this episode will appear slightly more, not including Lisa. Beth is now an OMG Sorority girl as her cousin is one of the heads head of the sorority girls and immediately let Beth in. One of the heads of the sorority girls, Tina,however hates John and the other MAN frat boys. Raven is studying poetry as well as Adam.
In this episode, John will be faced with tests set by the MAN frat members. He will also have to try and make the football team and do well in class. If John does well in all these things overall, he will be allowed into the MAN frat. If John does get let in to the MAN frat, he does have an option to say no but it he can also say yes.

In this episode, the MAN frat are throwing a Halloween party on campus. Howard, John's best friend in high school and his new girlfriend Zoe come to the party with Raven's younger sister Denni. Although the word eventually breaks out at Centerscore High about the party and more high school students than expected show up.
John has an option to date Beth, Raven or Lisa in this episode. This will not effect the game much at all as if he dates Raven she will appear as a main character either way, if he dates Lisa she will not appear at all either way, and Beth will only appear if he dates her.
The correct answer is Angie, who is a vampire and is kidnapping people to turn them in to vampires. This will be revealed weather John guesses correctly or not. At the end of the episode, John has to try and fight Angie and the vampires in a football game. At the end of the episode, John wakes up not being able to remember what happened at the party meaning that it was all likely a dream.
After Football StarEdit
John later appears in College Stories along with other M.A.N. members, Bryce, Dontae and James. Their main rival frat (the B.R.B. brothers) created mischief by pranking M.A.N. Bryce tells John (or whatever the name was) to call for backup (His girlfriend Beth, Lisa or Raven). Hector comes up to the M.A.N booth and is eager to join M.A.N, but Trey (the self-centered leader of the B.R.B. brothers) says that he could use a guy like Hector and that M.A.N is falling apart with the snack table, but Hector thinks that M.A.N has got another trick up their sleve. John girlfriend (Beth, Lisa and Raven) stands up to Trey with everybody else being impressed, and it makes Trey look weak. G.U.Y. decided to team up with the B.R.B. brothers to play a scrimmage football game against M.A.N and Trey thinks they don't stand a chance, but M.A.N thinks otherwise. B.R.B and G.U.Y were beaten with Trey becoming infuriated and becomes even more infuriated when Bryce calls him a sore loser and starts shoving him, then the rest of M.A.N start physically fighting B.R.B and G.U.Y and they end up on the ground, with Hector impressed. Then Coach Craw appears and tells them to break it up and Hector's not sure what to do and John says they should run. Back in the M.A.N house Hector is thinking about pledging with M.A.N and they celebrate by going to a party at the O.M.G house.
