Not video games, but I happened to watch the first episode of Blue Dragon while it was airing here where I live, not that interesting so I didn't follow it, but MC gets bullied and then recruited by this girl that laughs at him for wanting to join her adventure despite not knowing anything about her and possibly being his worst enemy. Thought it was the usual edgy character who doesn't trust people and shit and that they would all travel happily together. Then like 5 months later I casually happen to find Blue Dragon airing again and watch it, turns out it was the last episode and the bitch actually betrayed the MC and turned out to be the final boss. Shit was crazy.

>There's a boss that's actually a good guy trying to stop you from committing a colossal mistake
>Even if you, the player, figure out on your own that what your protagonist's doing is wrong, there's no way to progress the game without doing the wrong thing because the game's scripted that way so you HAVE to play as if you're a stupid fucking idiot

I still kill them just the same, but its nice to see that they achieved their goals.
>boss is impossible to hit until they expose their weak point
>they just spend like two or three minutes wandering around and throwing random attacks, some being hard as hell to dodge, before they actually do this
>Credits theme is a medley of various songs from the game
Goemon GBC (the jap-only one, not the shitty one we got) was fucking awesome for NOT doing this.
You can literally zoom around all over the fucking place and you move fucking fast as well.
Too bad the boss itself is so lacking, because the potential is fucking great.
>Spend entire game getting to villain who was at the center of a bunch of horrible shit you suffered
>Turns out they're just some old fat political fuck who did this for purely selfish and shitty reasons.

this is my peeve though, man

Fucking Yuyuko even do it was a few games later
That was the hypest shit in Digital Devil Saga

You're telling me your sexually attracted to Koshimizu Sachiko, the 14 year old idol who weighs less than the average Golden Retriever? Really?
Star Fox 64
Shame that I've never managed to get the good ending.
Dude, seriously? Are you really saying that? You want to firmly grip around her tiny waist, pulling her smooth hips and virginal orifice to your manhood? Do you really want to use her like some sort of living onahole because she's so tiny and light? Dude, come on,
fairiesbecoming evil in videogames?
Nah man, that's disgusting, I would never pull her panties down to her ankles, then hold her up against a wall and pound her tiny little pussy under her skirt. Nor would I slide my hand into her shirt and grope her nonexistent little titties, feeling her chest heaving from her gasping breaths while I continued to pound deep within her. And I certainly wouldn't blow my load as far inside as possible, before finally letting her down and carrying her to a bed so she could lay down and cuddle with me.
You're a sick fuck if you think I'd do anything like that.
>first boss is also the extra boss
>the enemies in the next level are the boss from the previous level
>Final boss is a legendary hero and your friend
>He sacrifices his humanity to save his beloved
>Sad music plays during the fight
Haha, true, true. What if, hypothetically speaking, again this is just a sort of "thought experiment," you came inside her and then forced the usually insanely smug and cocky Sachiko to call her parents and tell them she was pregnant?
What do you think of that? what do you think would happen? how would she react?
>Main character can see the future

Damn that was a great game.
Man I remember using so many items I hoarded throughout the game and spamming Great Dragon on his face, was like.
Until he died, loved the battle, also loved the spin on the ultimate dragon you got and the last battle. BOF2 is such an underrated game...
>The game's first fight is the final boss of the sequel which in turn is a prequel
>final boss gives you a long serious speech about his motives, his fears, and the order of the universe
>ends his speech with "better to reign in Hell than serve in Heaven...
>game hypes up the boss like she's some kind of hot shit
>her battle is actually like punching a puppy
I played all of them, even Dragon Quarter, IMO 2 is the best of them, I'd rate them like this:
2 > 3 == 4 > 1
And 5 is on a league of its own, I wouldn't really call it a Breath of Fire, it was like a Survival Horror RPG, I never felt so much fear playing an RPG. I realized I don't fear zombie or ghosts in games, I fear having to redo shit because the save point was a fucking hour ago. I still completed it in one run and only really used the dragon powers in the last bosses.
Honestly DQ should've been a start of its own series.
>constant sense of urgency because of d-counter and constant attempts to keep balance between blasting the boss out with dragon form or killing it naturally
>spooky as fuck locations with weird enemies around the corner, underground labyrinth of dark tunnels, abandoned city sectors, spooky industrial places
>grim story which only becomes darker with each game cleared or restarted as you're opening new scenes
>asshole friend goes yandere on your ass and butchers himself just to stop you
>OST from the same person who did osts for Matsuno games including Vagrant Story
>final boss is your party members
Speaking of the D-Counter

>You end up befriending the original Big Bad
>And then your ally turns on you and kills both of you
>final boss is never directly mentioned, just called by a simple title or hinted at
>game leads you into thinking that one character is the final boss
>they died before the game started
They look the same but they are not the same. Bowser used his magic to disguise ordinary minions as himself. If you beat them with fireballs you can see them change into their true form.
"Final boss" ain't really describes it.
They are more like an easiest, shittiest random encounter possible.
I still think it's the best ending and that by resetting everything Fou-lu will create a perfect civilization.
Man, I still have my save of BOF4 on that last dungeon... I could never finish that, its like a fucking maze. I've been spoiled about the ending so it doesn't matter too much but shit.
The only time a final dungeon made me this mad was that final xenogears dungeon where EVERYTHING IS FUCKING THE SAME, calling it a maze wouldn't do justice to it...
I thought it fitted because of the whole Micshit incident.
Hey, only show Wizard is shit.
Stage show and movie Wizard is THE shit.
Ok then. Better start posting cute boys.
Yeah it's alright. As long as you watch the Director's Cut because FUCK the original ending.
Yep, that's the one.
Be sure to watch Insight Episode 0 too before starting season 2.
>It actually had great story in my opinion
I didn't like the story because of how predictable it was, but when I finished it, I wanted to own a graphic novel version of it because those cutscenes were great.
