>It was all just a dream
>the whole goal of the game wasn't there to begin with/was destroyed
>it was a dream the whole time
>everything leading up to that point had no dream like qualities, or else the twist would be ruined.
>Your entire universe was created by a scientific expreriment by some narcisist scientist fuck
>That experiment also caused that our actual universe was destroyed in the process
>That scientist now is the "God" of that new universe
>Now you have to reclaim your place as the new God if you don't want your world and your friends to die and also fixing your new universe so it doesn't sagnate and die.
I actully liked it but the last part of the story fell under the same JRPGs cliches and tropes that the story trayed so hard to avoid during the first 2/3 of the game
>The Big Bad was actually trying to save the world from an Even Bigger Bad who wasn't foreshadowed at all in the rest of the game.
>Everyone forgives the Big Bad for all of bad he did to everyone and he just seamlessly becomes another generic good guy.
>the whole time instead of playing as the protagonist of the series you were actually playing as some random unimportant background character from the previous game that no one gave a shit about
>You die in a cutscene in the ending
There are so few games that properly justify killing your character, let alone using a cutscene.
It's specific to Fallout 4, but the inability of your character to grasp that more time had passed after they were obviously refrozen was fucking retarded. All the shit they did to obfuscate that fact was just grating.
>There is a cutscene and/or QTE in lieu of a final boss fight
>game appears to be a dream, with lots of weird shit going on
>it's actually real life, not a dream
Driver SFhandled it pretty well though.
>game is fucking up killing likable characters left and right
>"it's okay, it's just a dream"
>it's actually not
WAKE ME UP
>No matter what you do, you cannot get the best ending on your first playthrough.
>Almost the end of the story going against Maleficent and Riku as the final battles
>Outta fucking nowhere "ANSEM" shows up
Fuck did they think
I can easily forgive Chrono Trigger since they revealed Lavos pretty early on. The problem is mostly with games that introduce a completely new enemy right at the end.
However, why on earth was everyone so chill about Magus? That part was bothersome.
>the main character is actually the bad guy
>my fucking slappy ham when
One of the best twists in vidya.
>just playing through the game normally as the protagonist
>halfway through the game the main character betrays YOU, THE PLAYER, and becomes an antagonist
>you switch to (and now play as) the next-most-important character in the party, who has now turned into the main protagonist of the game
Man that twist was great.
>you're actually a transdimensional perspective attracted by the main cast to save them at the end
>the game lets you keep playing as the antagonist and kill the other protagonists
>Read 120 hours long murder mystery VN
>After the halfway point MC starts lusting for the girl who killed his entire family
>Turns out she is a boy
>Also his uncle due to grandpa rape
>Also has multiple personalities and crossdreses so he is in a relationship with both MC's male and female cousin
>This somehow counts as motive for murder
>MC forgives him
>Main theme changes to how you are a terrible person for wanting to find out the culprit and not being sad for peopel being dead
>The sentnence "without love it cannot be seen" gets spouted multiple times like it actually means something
>Fans get mad and claim that the motive is stupid and that there is no way people wouldn't notice the culprit was the same person
>The author replies with "lol you clearly lack love if you think that"
Have fun dude. Just expect a slow JRPG with bad voice-acting. Play its sequel/prequel as well though, it plays a lot faster and has better voice-acting, but the story is a bit worse.
The first half is 10/10 if you get past the slow start but the author best friend died while he was writing part 2
I don't really regret wasting 120 hours on it since the ride was fun but it was pretty stupid
Make sure you teach yourself how decks properly work like not using clashing elements in the same turn (say, Fire and Water cards). Also make sure you find the thing that allow you to 'level' your decks or however it works. Been years since I've played it.
I found an undub, so I think I'll be fine. And I really dig slow paced RPGs. Now I'll pray it emulates well on my toaster.
Not that guy, but in my opinion it went full pants on head retarded in Chiru. The first half is really good, so read at least that.
Umineko has boring parts and fucking amazing parts
If you enjoy phoenix wright you should enjoy all the logic and battles of wits
Music is 10/10 though
If you can't handle the bad sprites you can try teh ps3 patch
>You thought you were this extra super special VR mission soldier
>Nope, he was a badass child soldier feared by grown men in Africa raised by a clone of the legendary Big Boss
>Fucker throws your dog tag away to signify he's free of being controlled by YOU
Character joins your party. Has a whole bunch of useful skills and is generally a pretty good member.
So naturally either:
1. For some contrived reason he/she's taken out and can't be used later in the game where it would be helpful.
2. Flat out doesn't stay with your party for whatever reason, even if his/her help would be greatly appreciated against bosses,
3. Is in fact a villain all along.(I'm looking at you SRW. Ingram, Levin, Advent. Is it so much to ask to have an ally character who is on the fucking level with you?)
