So I know /v/ hates the ever-living fuck out of this game, so I'll be brief.
I downloaded UT during the Steam sale last week and got the neutral, "love everyone" happy ending, and the genocide ending. When reading up on the genocide run I saw a bunch of people moaning about how they couldn't do it because they were too attached to the characters and they didn't want to fuck up future runs of the happy endings.
Who gives a fuck? I had no attachment to the meme characters, nor did I get why people had such a hard time playing this like you would any other RPG. Besides, I thought the Undyne and Sans fights were fun as fuck.
tl;dr - why are people such autists about this game?
I dunno, I kinda felt like the game was trying to do something by asking me to not play anymore past the pacifist ending, so I didn't.
I don't finish most of the games I play so I didn't mind just not doing it.
the characters were kinda involved in the decision. I liked them a lot.
That's the great mystery isn't it? But similar to the bewilderment many people shared when trying to understand why people were so obsessed with My Little Pony. The answer is simply unbridled autism
I'm genuinely curious as to why this fanbase is so obsessive and autistic to the point that they don't do one of the major storylines in the game.
I wouldn't be surprised if there was a large overlap.
this thread was fucking pointless m8
thanks for wasting all of our time
I had played pretty far into the pacifist run then my hard drive died. I decided to genocide and I couldn't find it in me to kill any monsters that weren't hell bent on killing me, or at least I liked as a character. Like napstablock, I liked him so I let him live. If an enemy gave me the option to spare before I killed them I did it. But in general- if it hurt me and I didn't like it I killed it. If it didn't hurt me/i liked it I didn't kill it. I did kill toriel though because I was gonna just kill everything but then I genuinely felt bad after killing her. I tried my best to defend my actions but couldn't.
Well, I suppose the obvious answer is that even though you had no attachment to the game's characters, other people did.
I can dig what you're saying OP, and I can swing with what the other cats who love this game are saying. I totally agree with you however that people who don't play genocide are missing out on a good portion of the game, for story and, definitely, gameplay.
But hey! Some people play the game one way, other folks play it another. Life goes on. All is swell.
I don't know man.
But I feel like this game has implanted it's morals into my collective consciousness.
When I first played Bloodborne i'd kill everything in sight, but whenever I play Bloodborne now, I steer away from attacking enemies and wait to see if they're hostile first even though they're hideous beings and will undoubtedly try to kill you.
I think the bigger problem is that the game is tedious as fuck and I would never want to play it again after getting the neutral ending. Literally the only difference is that I would have to grind my way to a better final boss fight but I still have to sit through all the cutscenes and phone calls.
Why does everyone say Undertale is filled with memes when the only thing that's really a meme is the skeleton fonts (which has little to do with their character) and glyde (an optional enemy that's stupid hard to find)
I had no attachment to any of the characters.
How can you get attached to characters with 10 lines of dialogue?
Is everyone suffering from ADHD? I guess they're more fleshed out than what you'd find in a mobile game or something.
>memeley the memer
>/v/ - video games
I just wanted to enjoy a video game
Didn't like the genocide run because grinding enemies sucked. They didn't even try to make it fun. I eventually gave up grinding and pick up someone else's save that was already up to Sans and Undynes fight.
In that cave area in snowdin with the door, there's an extremely low encounter rate for a monster called Glyde. It basically acts like your run of the mill internet attention whore.
>developing an emotional attachment to fiction characters
I know this is 4chan and words have been memed into oblivion, but the ability to suspend disbelief and become invested in ficitonal worlds is a sign of a normally functioning brain.
it's the same thing as when you're reading a book/watching a movie and feel sad about something.
in fact it's supposed even more effective because you actually interact with the story.
