I think that Harry never turned out mean and nasty and cruel, because he was saved at a pivotal moment in his childhood. Transgression from child to teen is stereotypical where we see anger and hurt and resentment for these terrible childhoods. But at the stroke of his 11th birthday, Hagrid saved him. Hagrid gave him something to live for, something he eventually came to understand why his childhood was the way it was.
