Imagine if Half Life 3 did this. Shepherd is sided with the combine by G-man, and Freeman with the humans so they will eventually kill each other for G-man's "employers".
Or am I just retarded?
>MC is the chosen one
>he saves the world
both the Hylden and the Vampire hero.Kain was the Guardian of Balance, but not the Vampire hero.Moebius, Raziel and Kain all confuse the Guardian of Balance with the Vampire hero. At the end of Defiance, Raziel sacrifices himself by killing himself, fulfilling both the heroes' prophecies (killing the other one).Kain retains his destiny as the Guardian of Balance., but the last game of the series never happened so we never see how that turns out.
I know your frail mortal shell can contain such forbidden truths.
That is pretty much the premise of the first two scenarios of Pathologic.
There was a similar play on "you are the chosen one" in the good old The Longest Journey.
Final case of using the "chosen one" in a rather fun way was in Morrowind.
>you play as the chosen one
>you are the antagonist
>MC is immortal but loses his memory every time he dies.
>You go around trying to remember your past lives and why you are immortal.
>tfw your final boss is your mortality
>can aid the big bad evil lord
>he doesn't kill you afterwards
>is actually the best dad ever
It's too bad he insists on sending my bitch to hell first though. I mean, spending time with your dad dominating the world and destroying everything is great and all but sometimes you want your dick sucked, and his helmet thing looked really sharp and uncomfortable.
I totally know what you mean, that's why three is such a big deal. There is a lot we don't understand. I don't know about killing each other, but definitely something. I hope Breen isn't jujst a pawn, but has some thing else he's doing. Maybe Freeman is meant to disrupt that, who knows.
Dark Souls almost did this. Oscar of Astora has unused dialog lines indicating that he was originally going to escape the Undead Asylum with you, but would eventually side with whichever serpent you didn't.
Oh no, by no means is dark souls 2 a bad game.
its just incredibly lackluster compared to 1 (at least it runs faster than microsoft word)
buy it when its on sale with all the dlc
>protagonist was part of the villain that got separated long ago

Not really though, you should try playing it.

But wasn't Rance just some guy and there actually was a real chosen one? He was just busy doing sidequests while Rance just wanted to fuck bitches and get the whorehouse open? I think I read something like that here.
They all fucking deserve it any way.
>You are the chosen one
>You can get into every faction and become a leader
>You can be the strongest being in the world
>Nobody in the game really gives a shit
>the game is repetitive and boring even with mods
>mfw some people still think its the best game ever
Correct. The real chosen one is a teenager who gets all the benefits of a generic JRPG protagonist.
The current one ended up getting stuck solving irrelevant problems around the world and getting a virgin harem.
Yuna still got away.... there is no justice in this world.
Man this makes me wish you could just take off your chosen one aspect and just force it on someone else for a while.
Then when you are exploring the world as regular peasant you'll notice the guy, or girl, wrecking dragons and hauling loot out of dungeons.
then you absorb his/her soul and get your choosening back
Now that makes me wish there was some sort of "Heroine Raiser" game where you act as some sort of deity/spirit that guides and sets up events to train and mold some unknowing peasant girl to become a mighty hero
You're actually the ancient evil, and when you feel like you've built up her abilities enough, you possess her, expel her soul, and take her body as your own. It's an adult game, and you spend the second half of the game generally slutting it up, establishing your evil empire, and possibly even building another body for the heroine's soul so you can force her into it and corrupt her into your loyal minion.
Only if you didn't kill the whole world.
Do it for Mami, they all deserve to burn.

Nintendo retroactively placed the Link to the Past > Link's Awakening > Oracles > Zelda I > Zelda II timeline in a branch where the Link in Ocarina of Time failed to defeat Ganon. Cheating, but it's the closest I can think of.
Read a few of similar stories for other games, can be entertaining.
What I really want is to be a peasant in a world where the hero is a NPC who can show up any time and changes the world around me in considerable ways as he finished main quests and shit. Offer him potions or perhaps sticking a knife in his back if a opportunity arise.

He was the hero they didn't deserve, but got anyway.
there is no actual chosen one they were tricked by a false god who wants to keep the "wheel of fate" turning.If you really want to know the story its best if you just play the games anon i dont want to spoil the story for you

From a similar thread earlier today, I liked the idea.

Arc Rise Fantasia does the first 2 points.
It does the third point to a certain extent in the sense that
"the chosen one" business was a divine conspiracy
>edgemaster supreme can't let go of his cyber gf and struggles with having his character level reset, AIs and hackers while trying to find his old guildmate with a huge fucking arm and bitching glasses
WKC is a similar premise, but the suit of armor in it gives the protagonist actual powers. I'm assuming in the case of that greentext, the squire would literally have nothing special about him.
>You play the son of a legendary hero who has been cursed to age much faster by a demon, only giving you a couple of more years to live. The gods have taken pity on you and allow you to have offspring, sadly all bearing the same curse.

>the antagonist was a good guy all along
>he was trying to stop his father from

The Japanese are still pretty butthurt about getting their shit kicked in by America, which is predominantly Christian. As a result, supernatural villains in many games these days are typecast as Abrahamic deities, while good supernatural entities are either Japanese or Western Pagan deities.

Even if he is in this version, which was never confirmed or even that strongly hinted at, he certainly wasn't back in the original script where it was supposedly explicitly Andre.

He does. The assassin then just tries stabbing you when no one's looking. To prevent this, you have to go back in time two-hundred years and get a juggler's costume, then travel back to the present (but a couple hours before you left), pretend to be a street performer, and throw a note to your past self telling yourself to steal a saucepan from a burning restaurant and wear it like armor to prevent the stabbing.

Ok is not a game, but speaking of horror, one thing that ticks me off is how stupid people act in those games, such as
>not aknowledging or brushing off paranormal events
>people that dont let you speak and act pissed, insulting you while not even letting you finish your sentence
Which reminds me
>barely any human alive, those that live are crazy the outsiders are jerks that order you around

>but you make up as she sees the truth
But you save everyone's asses...well of those that survived at least and it all goes back being fine and dandy...or does it?
The game? Dead Space? The lesson? 99% of Humanity are jerks.
OP here, that guy is probably gone but here's the story. Blood Omen 2 happens because in defiance Raziel didn't kill
Janos Audronwhen he became possesed by the hylden and in doing that he fucked the timeline and because of that young Kain had to deal with the Hylden in Blood Omen 2. Also did any of this make sense because usually my writting is shit?

>Multiple protagonists several generations
>Time Travel shenanigans bring them all together to fight final boss
Well to explain it better it originally happend because Raziel survived at the end of soul reaver 2. Because Kain saved Raziel at the end of SR2 Raziel later resurrects Janos and Janos then becomes possessed. None of this should have happend but because Kain saved Raziel it did. They got the idea for Blood Omen 2 at the end of Soul Reaver 2. Does that answer your question?
Half Minute Hero did that.
The last stage was surprisingly hard.

Tell me the name of this game! I must know!
This is the second time I've heard this on here. What game does this? It it's just you repeating this over and over again across a several months and threads then screw you buddy.
Come on man, you have to make it sound better than that. Something like
>protagonist's old commander is a recurring fight and the primary antagonist
>you can never beat him because he teleports all over the place
>that is, until you get a teleport of your own and track him down
>three boss fights in a row where you both teleport all over each other
>in giant mechs
>the third of which takes place inside of one of Mars' moons
Alright, so we already know that the antagonist made the savepoints. Now we just need... oh damn...
Let's kickstarter this. Then we won't HAVE to make it, but we'll have the money if we still feel like it.
>you are not the chosen one
>the actual chosen one who was supposed to be destined to kill the antagonist died a while ago and it made people lost all hope
>you are just a random guy who won't just give up easily and realizes he's the only one with enough balls to actually do something instead of waiting for doom

>the main villain knows
>tries to prevent prophecy fulfilling

>he mistakenly takes away your brother instead
Why can't there be a game where you're just some normal bloke doing normal things while the world is in danger and some stupid heroes are saving it instead of you.
I always like the one where in trying to prevent the prophecy the antagonist actually makes it come true.
