    Love when the games finale act takes place in space
    Love when the rivals team up to defeat a greater evil, and it’s 1000% better when they both survive and have a final clash at the end of it all.

    Hate when the game answers the question of your rival being definitely weaker than you. Even when you beat them in a fight, there’s usually some silver lining to it like them holding back or having some verifiable disadvantage that makes you see them differently. Shadow has this the worst because he tells Sonic verbatim, “I think the ultimate life form… is you!” And straight up DOES at the end of it. It’s like… why would you massacre your character like that, man? At least let him die with his dignity.

    Dumbass.

    Calling Neil the “replacement” when he created the game and wrote the story

  • I like when the main character dies at the end of the story and then the post-game appearance/character is different to reflect what happened in the story (like RDR2 playing as John or ME: Shadow of War when Talion’s abilities turn green instead of blue)

    I hate when you win a boss fight and then a cutscene triggers where you lose anyway

    Something that I really love that’s kind of rare these days is the main menu changing throughout the story

    Final Fantasy XV is probably my favorite in recent memory

    Yeah, not a fan of humorous sidekicks cause they always have to butt in a joke at the most inappropriate times when a character is having a moment, and tend to have nothing to offer for personality or development aside from being “the funny one.” A balanced cast where everyone gets a gag here and there is much better imo.

    Agreed. Most inconsequential happy endings without any compromise or sacrifice in the heroes end make me gag. But on the flip side, they can be very welcome for games predicated on misery and suffering, like the Souls games among others.

    Predictable storylines are a waste of everyones time though.

    I’m pretty sure I’m the only one who is relatively indifferent to this cause everyone else on the planet loves it

    yeah if it's a real rewarding/earned type of happy ending it's cool. especially s*** through hardship and s***, but usually it's obvious and not really strugglin like that so it's just lame for me
