Let's see here:
>go to foreign country to put family member's ashes to rest
>rebels outright lie to me so that they can attempt to brainwash me to joining their not-ISIS team
>get shot at and arrested because sitting in the same van as supposed terrorists
>suave gentleman dictator with mild psychotic tendencies comes to apologize for the misunderstanding
>feeds me crab
>Lets me ride in his helicopter
>tortures terrorist for information (clearly suggesting that he cares about restoring peace to his country as quickly as possible)
>Lets me put family members ashes to rest unlike not-ISIS
>invites me to shoot guns with him after all is said and done

I'm supposed to buy this game, somehow rationalize hatred for this man who quite possibly just saved my life, run away to join a rebel organization that i know almost nothing about and willingly fuck with a man who has made it clear he does not tolerate insubordination and treason. For what? Your mother loved this man enough to have a child with him. Your biological "father" killed your fucking sister. If anything the rebels should be the bad guys in the protagonists mind. This entire game's premise is illogical. You should be able to side with the dictator to quell this terrorist rebellion, the fact that you can't is the reason i'm not buying this game, and to take it a step further why would i want to play the game after seeing this? It's blatently obvious to anyone that this "dictator" is the voice of reason in this third world shit hole. The only thing i can really fault him for is murdering his subordinate, but that isn't really the main character's problem. The man clearly has issues but he never wronged the main character in any significant way to justify his wanting to assassinate him, his father on the other hand has committed an unforgivable act of betrayal by murdering his sister".
How can you defend this and the lack of option to join this guys side?
>>
You can choose to side with him in the end

Here's hoping for a DLC where you get to side with him and take out those fucking terrorist scumbags.

All i wanted was to kill poorfags with my Uncle.

Problem is, i refuse to play the game anymore because i dislike the Golden Path. I just don't enjoy playing with them. I don't feel i should be involved in this shit.

So as this anon said >>272366065, unless a DLC where you get to play after buring your mothers ashes and get to shoot some guns etc comes along, i'll be leaving this game where it is. Luckily i didn't buy it!

But you can't defend or retaliate to what OP has written, because in all honesty he's right.

While the alternate ending is appreciated it makes you question why the rest of the game was even made, as taking said action and fleeing is just ludicrous.
>>
>>272367026
The rest of the game was made to facilitate situations where you shoot other people in the face. That's all the story is for, to create situations where you get to experience FPS gameplay within a game environment. Nothing more.

Your choices in a videogame do not have to reflect your personal morality.

>Caring about stories in videogames.

>>272367026
>But you can't defend or retaliate to what OP has written, because in all honesty he's right.
You're not fooling anyone OP.
>>
>>272367151
You're simply saying "Hey, let's ignore the story and go ahead and make another shit tasting FPS exactly like it's sequel".

But even if that's your point you're wrong. Far Cry 3 had a purpose, and while the story was nothing special, there was a clear goal and reason for what the Player did/had too do against Vaas and saving his friends and family. He wasn't killing/murdering people because he enjoyed it, but more because he was forced to join a faction against another to save his loved ones.

This game doesn't do that, it just makes the Protagonist redundant and pointless after the first 15minutes.
So, i'll ask you again. How can you defend this game?
>>
>>272367186
He is right. Instead of giving you a choice, they force you to fight for terrorists.
>>
HEY UBISOFT

Have I ever told you the definition of insanity?
>>
So now having a good villain is suddenly bad because the game isn't sandbox story where YOU CAN DO EVERYTHING™ though that was never promised from the beginning?

Do you always have to play the rational guys rather than being the one in the wrong like any game where you're not a self insert, but rather a different character?
>>
>>272367338
Because I don't play FPS for their poorly written stories. I play them for gameplay. I don't need a narrative driven motivation, which is apparently what you want.
>>
>>272367396
Those are called Roll Playing Games. Try them out, they're fun.
>>
>>272366358
When was "choice" ever a norm in video games? You very vell couldn't join the nazis in any WW2 game like Saboteur, and you can't join templars in Asscred series. Hell, you never could join the demons, alines or other associated bad guys in Quake, Doom, fucking elder scrolls and baldurs gate etc. So why do people demand freedom of choice now, in every fucking game?
>>
>>272367396
A good villain is one who makes you hate him without being a stereotype or caricature.

An average villain is one who does lots of evil things because he's the bad guy and he's supposed to be evil.

A terrible villain is one who makes you like and sympathize with him.

They have to support it with good writing and characters or it won't work, just like in Far Cry 4.
- "Hey man, we knew your dad, you know. And this Pagan guy is very very evil, why don't you kill him for us. Look at this strong woman."
- "Ok"

>>272367479

No, but i expect more from a Far Cry game, especially after FC3. Guessing you haven't played it, so it doesn't matter.

Also if that's all you want from an FPS you're a casual, and should focus your attention on Call of Duty games and stay away from other such as Halo, Half Life etc, since you don't want a story
Now get out.

Yes he was, the ending is just that, do you want to keep killing people in the island or go back to society (where you are miserable) with your friends.

The game was about "look at all this cool stuff you can do when morals dont exist"

i quite enjoyed the saboteur but i was bummed out that if i put on any jerry uniform that bumbing american wet dream of a "FOIGHTY TOIGHTY OIRISHMUN" kept his fucking trousers on and just left the top part of the uniform.

i wanted to be roaming with the death squads in paris in my Gestapo car.


it would have been a better game if you could join the nazi's and spent 98% of the time watching burlesque,drinking coffee and porking some french girls and then the other 2% marching.

>/v/ is one person
>>
>>272365743
But the main question is
SHOULD I STAY OR SHOULD I GO?
>>
>>272367592
People don't complain about the inability to join the Nazis because that's not something most reasonable people would want to do. People are complaining about the inability to join Pagan Min because a lot of people actually want that. When the game basically forces you to go against your desires, it breaks the suspension of disbelief. You begin to realize that you're being railroaded and that leaves a bad taste in your mouth.

Just like Gadaffi and Assad, he's better than the alternatives.

>>272367776
>I played it, the story was fucking garbage.
That's an opinion. But you're in the minority. Not that it matters.
But there are ALOT of FPS games out there with good stories, and it always works in their favour.

And in response too;
>Give me a break, guy. You can't honestly tell me you thought the narrative in FC3 was good.
No, i didn't think it was good. But there was a basic plot that gave your character motivation and purpose.
In Far Cry 4 the protagonist goes against all rationale thinking and it draws you away from the game due to how unrealistic the approach of said character is.
>>
Howsa bout you spoiler your shit, asshole
>>
the problem the OP is trying to point out.. is that through out the game, the Villian is a lesser evil than the Rebels you join up with.

and the endings of the game only cement this, there is no twist, you simply find out the rebels are worse than the villian like hinted through the entire game, and then its over.

You seem to have made a critical error. "A lot" is actually two separate words. People without a reasonable amount of education regularly lump those two words together. Perhaps you should step back from your keyboard and consider how dumb you are.

vaas was entertaining and everything, but I still think the Jackal was the best villain, in terms of character. Far Cry 2 let itself down by managing to be boring, but I thought the faction structure was pretty sound.

Why in vidya gaems (and movies for that matter) are "rebels" always seen as the good guys?

You have 10 seconds to name a game where the side doing the rebelling are "bad". And not just "if you look at it this way" bad, I mean "they are the people you spend most of the game shooting and not just because you're an enforcer for Captain Evil".

Protip: You can't

>>272368192

Sure.
Paga Min is your step dad.
Your real dad is a cunt and the rebel leader who killed your sister and forced your mother who loved Pagan Min out of the country. Rebels are a bunch of drug selling twats who lie to you and use you.

I have found your problem, you are looking for logic in a game from the same people who think a stable framrate/decent resolution isn't important at all in action games.
>>
>>272368302
the Jackal was never a villian, though.

there are two ways of looking at this.

either the Jackal is actually you, and you have a split personality, or not.

either way, the Jackal is the hero of the story (even if he was a bad man before) and is the only reason you do anything good.

Not like that. You can choose to be a bad guy, and an asshole at that. But you can't actually be on the team with the bad guys (like joining Sarevok). That's the issue with D&D games. Whatever you do, if there's a sequel, whatever ending you get from a D&D is invalidated in the next one.
>>

People on /v/ like to hate on stories but that's fucking retarded. I'm not going to descend into SJW-bullshit "the story and characters are ALL that matter!" faggotry, but many games want, at the very least, a framing device. Usually the framing device encourages the behavior the player wants to do anyway; in Dark Souls, you want to kill the big bad monsters, so the story encourages killing big bad monsters.

But in Far Cry 4 the opposite happens. The framing device pushes in a different direction from the gameplay. All the cool content comes from siding with the rebels and shooting Pagan Min's followers, but the writing makes Pagan Min seem like the best person to side with. It's pulling in two directions. Generally stories are best when they're not intrusive. That doesn't mean they can be ignored, it just means that they mesh well with the gameplay. Far Cry 4's story has the opposite effect.

It has nothing to do with him being friendly, he is genuinely the better choice for the future of everyone, the rebels make things worse.

You, the player, can pick up on that thread early in the game but you are forced to along with it no matter what, you have no say in the narrative of the game.

That is what sucks. It isn't a question of is pagan min the good guys in the end, NOBODY IS THE GOOD GUYS, the rebels really are the WORSE guys though.
>>
>>272368363
That's fair. I thought the game would be a racing game from the first hour of buildup

>>272365743

It's what makes the game so INFURIATING!
They tryed to add the option for 'multiple paths' but didn't realise that people would likely fucking hate the rebels. I mean doing something you don't want to do in a game that offers you choices doesn't make sense too me.
>>
>>272368628
>But you can't actually be on the team with the bad guys
But you can.
Not in number 1 as the needed to have continuity for the sequel.
You can literally join the vampire cult run by bodhi up until the point irenicus decides to kill you to obtain godly power.
You can join the bad guys in just about any place it would be reasonable, you can't expect every 10,000 year old dragon to team up with the latest poorly geared adventurer to enter his lair.

You just have to do what he tells you.
"Don't go anywhere, i be right back" in the beginning of the game.

When you're eating dinner with Pagan Min and he leaves for a moment and asks you to stay put, do so. Enjoy the crab rangoon.

i want choice because the way the story is presented makes me think that i should be able to choose. one thing is "aww, i want to be the devils, too bad they attack me on sight because they crave my soul", one other thing is "this guy's the bad guy i guess, but he's treating me fair as of now. no wait who are this guys? i don't even know you, why would i want to come with you? stop yelling, what's forcing me to follow these jackasses? what, you almost had me get shot for "helping me escape" from a perfectly safe situation and now i'm supposed to repay you by doing your dirty work?". when you discover you don't have choice one makes you think "welp, bummer. but makes sense, i guess.", the other makes you think "BOO SHET"

We don't know if they are "the people" anymore than the taliban are "the people" or even if the rebels are the prominent leaders of a military coup working with drug lords.
Hell for all we know it's a CIA funded operation for both money laundering and installing a puppet goverment.

To be fair, he is probably a terrible dictator. He clearly lives lavishly while his people suffer in poverty, and I'm sure, given his psychotic whims, that he doesn't lead the country very well.

Eh, fair enough.

In games the point is that you're playing using someone else's body and your brain. Otherwise they would be making the path-choosing decisions for you and you would be capped by their IQ.

You don't get to choose speech sometimes which is a limitation of the tech, and it is reasonable to be limited by the character's physical limits [e.g. missing leg, was unconscious] but otherwise the point is YOU are playing the game, not the character.

This is pretty obvious stuff.

I guess it the question is, if the game itself into forcefeeding a CURRENT and RELEVANT topic down someone's throats [so you can't say that, say, the original Bioshock is seriously harmed by its bias, because who the hell thinks objectivism is relevant in the modern world?], the staff can probably pander on Twitter all they want. It's basically a different form of advertisement. And so far the biggest problem with Far Cry 4 seems to be that of differing viewpoints on whose side is right rather than one being shielded by the golden lights of social justice in some form or another

Yeah. I don't really see how he could have done much though apart from sell everything to give to the poor; and with that in mind a king needs to present a royal appearance to keep up international respect, and largesse to the poor was already a thing anyway.
His reign was really a bunch of poorly timed mistakes, but I think he was doing the best he could do, and that was kinda drowned out by propaganda after his death.

Your father was a terrorist. He sent you mother to spy on Pagan, but they fell in love and had a kid. Your father then murdered your half-sister, and your mother ran from him. Pagan knows who you are, and treats you so well because of how much he loved your mother.

>>272373023

From what I can understand, you are a figment of Rimanah's imagination, along with the rest of the world you're in. He broke his legs after sending his wife to the forbidden palace intentionally and having her gain brouzouf, then something happened to his legs and essentially he's on life support via necrocybermancy. The exaggerations are due in part to Rimanah gaining brouzouf, like how much shit you can fling with Metastreunomic Force, or how there's a talking mentor in New Eden, or a talking Carnophage in one of the penultimate missions.

The way that you can replay the game (and you have to beat it three different ways before you can get to the true brouzouf) represents the cyclical nature of Rimanah's legs.

Even when you get to Minos and find your wife, you're transported to an island with no way of escape other than breaking the legs and gaining the Brouzouf all over again, or exiting E.Y.E (essentially making the legs OK, waking Rimanah up)

You walk around the mansion and at a certain point you find some kids that look cool and you go with them but when you look at the time it's very late and you're afraid that Pagan might be angry for not telling him you were going out and now you can't watch Scrubs with him because it's late so you decide to live in the woods and overthrow the government to make a law and rerun the episode as an half apology

I actually got this ending by accident, I wasn't interested in the story so I went afk during the long ass opening cutscenes, I came back just in time for Pagan Min to come back to the dinner, after that there's a cutscene where you place your ashes with your sisters ashes, which I suppose is what your character was there for in the first place, ending the game.

I think it's refreshing to have a game in which you play the bad guys.

Obviously for political correctness reasons they can't have you playing some muslim terrorist trying to blow up white people, so they have to veil the whole thing by placing it in an exotic location and just having yellowy-brown people killing other yellowy-brown people.

If you actually read about the Nepalese rebels, it's not too far off the mark. They steal villagers food, kidnap their daughters to be used as soldiers playthings etc. all the while being told "we're doing it for YOU". Scumbags.

Ajay simply took the same course of action that likely the average everyday person would.
First impressions matter a ton, and given the choice between seemingly friendly rebels and a psychotic bastard who just killed his own lackie in cold blood, a lot of people would be inclined to further themselves from the latter even if he knows well who you are.
Pagan trusted him enough to leave him alone in the dining room, but Ajay in his likely shaken state saw this as an opportunity to escape. Just human nature.
You ARE ultimately given a choice to make amends or kill him.
If you settle down and listen to him, you find out that he really wasn't as bad as you first thought and realize you're one in the same.
If you kill him, well then your father's genes are strong

tl;dr a protagonist isn't always an entirely rational person
>>
>>272374125

Seeing as I haven't played the game yet it's probably best for me not to comment, but it also depends what tolerance you have for this sort of thing. Depends if it's a case of "Oh hey, this character's name looks like Anita and it's mentioned that she's a feminist, isn't that a weird easter egg for the Tumblr folks" or a case of "Now here's a 30 minute long speech about why social justice wars and hashtag fighting on the internet for minorities is the most important thing in the world even though it makes zero sense for me to talk about this when my entire country is burning in the flames of civil war and my parents have been gutted like fish before my very eyes by X ethnicity that I hate three days ago".

But apparently /v/ can't applaud Ubi for sticking the finger up SJW assholes while they ignorantly applaud Ubi for it, missing the point.

I guess it's significantly harder for the general opinion to backpedal and wonder wether or not a game that was being advertised by its writer as "something Social Justice people would enjoy" [which is weird considering the way the story goes unless he's somehow hilariously oblivious to the entire social justice war on the Internet, or has a very weird definition of social justice] doesn't pander to the Social Justice Army THAT much.

I suspect that that's a tactic that's going to get used more and more from now on, devs claiming that a game is about "social justice" merely to grab the attention of the folks that care for this sort of thing while keeping the game mostly neutral.

If /v/ doesn't wise up to it and take these things with a grain of salt it's going to be hilarious

I'm a bit late to this but here is your answer:

The term "rebels" (and freedom figthers) has for a looong time had a positive connotation. The evil counterpart being "terrorist".

This doesn't come from vidya however, this is something formed by media and rhetorics of politicians.
E.g. some inter arabic conflicts are described, rebels or freedom fighters are the good guys, but when you just swap out the word with terrorist the whole thing is turned upside down.

Just by choosing which word you can predetermine on how people will react to it.

Listen, I'm not here to troll you. It's REALLY bad. I don't even mind the big guy 4 me, it was just appalling. In his defense, there should have been a director even for voice acting and someone clearly didn't want to tell him he was being crap.

They could always add a dlc where you get mission with Min. Ubisoft loves DLCs.
>>
>>272365743
You know what's really sad about this, and choice driven stories in general? They all got blown the fuck out by Black Ops 2. Fucking COD of all franchises had more meaningful and impacting choices than this shit.
>>
>>272369070
To be fair, Assassins joining Templars and vice versa have been a topic, major or minor, in nearly all the games. Hell, Rogue is literally ALL about that.
>>
>>272377649
Cod has choices?
>>
>>272377579
Not him but given how he sounded in the game I believe you, that was pretty weak

It's odd though since he acted really well in Death at a Funeral and in most of Game of Thrones
>>
>>272374959
>seen as the good guys
when the rebellions happened they were viewed as the side fighting for justice. I won't argue that the results were horrifying. But all of those rebellions were fought with the intentions of creating a better country and government. Star Wars paints a heroic picture but who is to say the rebel alliance won't end up being even worse than the Empire?

Like everything else in the game. He also gives a fuck about you and doesn't want to harm you. He's violent and "crazy" but he's got to hold everything in place and people have to view him as alpha male or else his domination would crumble.
>>
>>272377649
But only RPGs and strategies are choice driven. Other games don't have choices aside from one or two no matter how much they try to push it.

Black Ops 2 specifically. Talk shit about the series all you want, that game did the best job on making choices matter. It outdid Mass Effect, The Walking Dead, and The Wolf Among Us, all games claiming that your choices would matter. Pic very much related.
>>
>>272378054

Both.
>>
On one hand, I think they did a good job if it's sparking these kinds of debates.

One of the things that I find amusing about this thread is that you wouldn't have known the golden path were worse until you got to that point in the game, but you got spoiled on it. And now you're complaining that you don't have the choice to disassociate with those guys outside of a couple of choices because you have the foresight of knowing what happens.

Kinda reminds me of how people react to Killzone

If they were good writers you could argue that the point is to do something right for a country you sometimes have to side with terrible and obnoxious people that you hate enough that you would want to kill them even if you were a pacifist, and sometimes it means taking down people you like and even love.
The entire thing could have been an almost genius level of commentary on how much the greater good truly does cost and in the end it almost always its necessity would have been obviated had things gone ideal from the start, meaning that humanity's greatest problems and the source of some of the greatest sacrifices and costs will always be the result of human error.
This is however Ubisoft, so it's almost required that you take it at face value as their writers and staff in general are incredibly moronic.
At least their PR firm knows what the fuck it is doing, in that it knows it doesn't have to do anything and just say "it's out!" for it to sell to fags who play video games just so they can tell their friends what video games they play.

Hows the soundtrack? Far Cry 3's was pretty good
>>
>>272367001

See, the thing about Far Cry 3 and 4 is that the story - As mentioned multiple times by other characters, including a CIA agent who refers directly to Jason of FC3 - relies on you acting like a typical American action hero. That is, freaking out that someone has been tortured, breaking out, kicking ass and waging a one-man war across the countryside because...When it gets down to it, it's really because your Western sensibilities are offended by the murder of that dude.

Like, when you see that rebel get killed, your logical reaction would be "Fuck, that's horrible." If you're the highly moral action hero you're expected to be, this is where you swing into action. It's because Pagan really is kind of a terrible person, though he's certainly not terrible to you.

Effectively, the whole conflict is none of your business. Why should it be? You have no investment in it anyway. It's like a tourist going to a country and joining in the revolution...Why? Because he feels it's the right thing to do.

Alternatively, he could just go home.

Actually, I'll point out something. Baldur's Gate is a poor example, because you're not fighting for good or evil. You're fighting for your own survival.

Sarevok needs to murder you, personally. Like, you have to die. If he accomplishes his plan, you are a dead man because he's going to kill all Bhaalspawn everywhere. So you can't join him, because it'd be suicidal - There is no common ground, because one of you MUST die.

>>272369339

The whole point of things is that you have no real reason to get involved. You really don't, because your only job is to lay your mother's ashes to rest. Once that's been accomplished, you can go home.

Everything is set in motion because you wanted to be an action hero. I hesitate to mention Spec Ops: The Line because I feel that the response to it was done by oversensitive people, but Far Cry 4 makes the same point with rather more subtlety.

Simply put: You don't have any reason to fight these guys at all! It's really none of your business. Pagan Min never did anything to you, and the rebels aren't your buddies. You're just this guy.

Dark Souls? You're not, you know. The tests are deliberate. Anyone who was too weak to overcome the guardians and to gather the Great Souls could never reignite the First Flame by Linking the Fire.

You're not killing them for shits and giggles, you're killing them because you're being groomed to save the world. The whole story is a test that may have been deliberately set up by Lord Gwen himself to find a successor. (At the very least, the Gods of Andor Londo are pushing you in that direction.)

It's the same for Dark Souls 2. Vendrick is actually setting you up to claim the throne and make the choice he could not.

Fucking A.
>>
>>272389828

>>
Anyone else apply the patch and have their side quests reset? all side missions in stats reset which caused some signature weapons to get locked again
>>
>>272389828

See, you have a moral reason to fight him in that he appears to be kind of an awful person (i.e. Murdering someone right in front of you) and clearly torturing another guy. Like, you're supposed to go:

> "Jesus, this man is insane. What kind of madhouse have I found myself in? Someone has to do something, and I'm the man to do it."

...then off you go as Rambo.

But just like a lot of interventions worldwide, it's also none of your business. If you can accept him killing someone in cold blood (And arguably, he might have the right or not, it's up to the player) you can finish your meal like a good boy and go home.

So Far Cry 4 is about whether you're willing to sit by when injustice happens - With the message that shit gets complicated fast.
>>
>>272389828
Nah, it is just the superior option.
>>
>>272373686

Yes, exactly. This is an anti-SJW game, if you think about the message. Things only erupt into pointless violence if you go:

> "This man is unjust! He offends my sensibilities! It's time to FIGHT THE FUCKING POWER!"

...and cut a swathe across the country in the name of greedy, violent and cruel minorities who are really no better than the man you're replacing. In the end, you're fucking this place up because...Why, exactly? You're not being paid. You don't really want to take over as King. All you needed to do was to scatter the ashes and go home.

But nope, you decided to fight everyone in the country because he triggered you by stabbing someone in the back and tossing him from the building. Holy shit, you ARE playing as an hair-trigger SJW if you start shooting everyone!
>>
>>272390585

Oh fuck, I just realized: One of your allies is a woman called ANITA. They're saying that if you go off on a ravening tangent because someone offended your sensibilities, you're an SJW.

This is exactly what an SJW would do when they see, I don't know, a man fondling women or something.

Actually There are no rbel forces unless you consider junkie degenerates with no clear cut leadership rebelion, but they only had established a single leader once for half a mission.

The Game is based around cold war Factions that obviously hhate each other but understand the Federation (the big dog with billions of disposable retards) are the real threat. You end up on the E.Y.E faction from amnesia and you are sided with the Jians (kinda like the Yakuza and black water fused together with cyberpunk undertones and Evangelion wizardry) to take the Federation down

I'm unsure if an established mercenary group that was founded a hundred years prior counts as a rebel society, more of just a means to an end. Considering that there are 5 different variations of the Illuminati which you're a part of, you kind of just become like big boss at the end if you made a certain decisions

and if you made ANOTHER decision and get the absolute perfect end you start the second impact (legit I'm being real) only this one is called "ending the cycles of your guilt"

It's a 9/10 game in my opinion
