Some computer games have a way of spinning the story in a way that sometimes really hits you. Here are my top 3.
- When Alys died in Phantasy Star 4. She was too cool for that to happen.
- Coming across the sewage works that had been converted into a settlement in The Last of Us. As you go through the area and find a small room behind a locked door, with 2 small skeletons and one large one. Next to the larger skeleton is a shotgun and a note. Turns out someone left the door open, and the zombies got in. The note mentions that the writer had saved 3 bullets.
- Fallout 4. In a rangers shack close to Sanctuary, you can find a diary next to a body. It’s a girl who was kicked out by her parents for being pregnant right before the bombs fell.
- For those wondering why I haven’t listed Aeris dying in Final Fantasy 7, it’s because I was more annoyed than saddened. I’d gotten her final limit break, and she gets herself stabbed. Hmph!
