I accidentally ran over and killed this pedestrian walking his dog. The dog lays beside his owners body and pines him. I've never felt so guilty about killing an NPC before. He has a name and everything..

One time in RDR 2, I stumbled upon a random, isolated house in the wilderness and decided to rob it.

I walk in, and there's a dude. He points his gun at me. I shoot him in the gut.

The guy's adult son comes out of the next room. He doesn't attack me. He runs to his father's side who is bleeding out, and starts yelling at me while freaking the fuck out. He's crying, his grief is palpable.

The moment was so genuine and made me feel so bad I had to reload the game so my character didn't have that blood on his hands.

Then I robbed their house when they were out doing something like a civilized person.

Dude! I did about the same thing, except I came in with a knife and stabbed the guy when he pulled his gun on me. When his son came out freaking out I had to reload and quit for the night. Fucked up how some videos games hit your emotions like that. After that incident, I only shot people that I felt deserved it instead of just being a red hat.

Edit: it almost felt more personal because I stabbed his father with a knife. It was also in first person with no HUD, so this is the one time in my life the immersion fucked with my heart in a bad way.

Another game mission that gets you in the feels is in cyberpunk 2077, a girl is building her own car to get away from the city, and you get sent there to take the car or you can let her go, nothing makes you feel worse than keaneu Reeves calling you a dick after you take her car. I felt so bad. Games are getting awesome at moral choices.

RDR 2 made me realize my friend was a little off. He came over to visit and we ended up playing. It started getting late so I decided to lay down on the sofa and go to sleep, my husband was already sleeping in the chair. My friend was sitting in front of the TV playing. I woke up after a few hours and started to watch him play. I saw him abduct this character and he threw her over the back of his horse.

Strange, but ok.

So I’m watching and he’s just riding along with this person on his horse. He shifted and looked back at me, I closed my eyes pretending to be asleep. I was very curious at this point. I kept watching and every now and then he would shift and look back at me, I would close my eyes.

He finally arrived at this cave where he had SO MANY people tied up on the ground. He then started to kill all of them, one by one. He was laughing the whole time. He doesn’t know I saw this weird scene, but I know and when I see him I always think of it.

I’m trying to imagine how long he spent kidnapping random people and bringing them to this cave, only to kill them.

This game has some of the best AI i've ever seen in a game.

I once tazed a guy and his dog sat by his side crying until the doctors showed up.

I once arrested a man in a lobster suit and his GF ran up to the cop, punched him in the face, and also got arrested.

Plus the whole gangs system, there's like 3 gangs + police that can all have shootouts with eachother and call backup. You can start playing around with it by letting them know where their rivals are. I did quite alot of missions by clearing out areas via gang warfare lol

I've spent more time instigating shoot-outs between cops, gang members and civilians (and watching my puppets dance from a nearby roof top) than playing the main story line. In fact, I never completed the story, but I still start the game from time to time for an hour of mayhem. Definitely one of my favorite open world playgrounds.

49

u/Skabomb Dec 06 '21

Doing the Arrest, Gang Hit, Arrest chain and watching a war between police and gangs start is the best thing you can do in Watch Dogs 2.

I mean. The story is cool, but have you ever started a war in an entire area of a city? Cause it can get out of hand in a big way if you get lucky.

The longest I had them going was 30 minutes. But I got really lucky and every time it would start to die down more people would flood in to keep the war alive.

It was beautiful.

u/Judazzz Dec 06 '21 edited Dec 06 '21

In my experience the Oakland hoods are by far the the best place to instigate a massive turf war. It takes some effort and good fortune getting two gangs, cops and swat teams engaged in an all-out fight, but watching the world burn after you pulled it off is glorious.
My favorite part though is hacking arriving squad cars and driving them into the mayhem, having them run over gangsters and cops alike and finally exploding on impact - it's like the icing on the massive shit cake of my own doing.

Honestly they're completely different games with the only thing in common being most of the mechanics. If you go into wd2 expecting a true sequel, you'll be disappointed. It's best to treat it as an entirely different experience imo. 1 is way grittier than 2 which is very light hearted for most of it. I still love both, I've played 1 like 3 times, but now I want to play 2 again. Also fuck yeah, halo infinite kicks ass.

Within the first 10 minutes, I already disliked the forced recruitment stuff

you gotta get something off the roof, so you need to recruit a construction worker because they can call in a cargo drone wherever they want.

Why don't I just use ANY of my people to call a cargo drone to that cargo drone call platform that is literally right beside me?

Nah, you gotta recruit a construction worker

Fine then, I'll go to this construction site around the corner

NO!!!! You must travel to the other side of the city to this specific construction site and get someone from there.

I felt it was a massive step down from WD2.

The amount of unique NPC dialogue that you can overhear while walking around (both in person and by tapping people's cellphones) is way higher than in any other game I've ever played, also. Takes a LONG time before you start to hear anything get repeated.

What game? Any good?

Watch Dogs 2.

Expect about 30-40 hours of gameplay. Once you finished the main quest, there's not much left to do, the freemode is very shallow. There are a few multiplayer missions, but they're very repetitive. Also, plenty of cheaters in mp. Not bad, but don't buy it at full price.

Edit: if you are prone to epilepsy, skip this title, the visuals are very intense.

”plenty of cheaters in mp”

Well you play as a hacker so whats the broblem

u/Somepotato Dec 06 '21

One of my biggest gripes of watch dogs was they included an anticheat in a mostly single player game lol.

It also did nothing to stop cheaters

This game really gets you invested in the characters. I remember trying to go through the whole game in stealth without killing anybody until that gang killed Horatio. The mission right after that I dropped the whole stealth challenge and just went guns blazing in full rage mode.

Looks like Watch Dogs 2, quite good if you can get past the "pacifist white hat hackers killing everyone" thing...

u/sleuthyRogue Dec 06 '21

You can technically play as a "pacifist," if whacking multiple people violently with a pool ball to induce unconsciousness falls under your definition of pacifism.

Yeah, that split in gameplay vs. narrative got to me eventually. If they at least threw a bit more dialog signaling Marcus' changing behavior and loosening morals I probably would've finished that game.

They added a couple of non-lethal guns in the 3d printer that you can use now

The worst part of The Last of Us 2 was killing a dog and have the enemy who owned it shout out its name in despair.

u/Flaux454 Dec 06 '21 edited Dec 06 '21

If you stealth killed the owner/handler, the dog also just begins crying and circling their best bud’s corpse.

As someone who really doesn't enjoy sports video games, never in my life have I heard a better reason for playing them.

I’ll do you one better:

During my first playthrough, I accidentally threw a Molotov at a dog. It let out an eerie as hell death cry as it was burned alive and then the owner yelled in a trembly voice “She got Bear!” (Bear being the dogs name)

And then in a later time point where you play as someone else on the opposite side, you played fetch with Bear… the dog that was soon to be molotov’d at a later time point.

That game is liquid depression and I loved it!

u/ZoSoVII Dec 06 '21

In Fifa, throwing a molotov would mean at the very least a yellow card.

Just wait till the addon where you play as dogs and when you foul your opponent they play dead so the whole other team howls together in the suspected death of a teammate.

I was doing an evil run in RDR2 and would shoot peoples horses after I killed them. Always felt really bad about it. Like what if they are conscious in video games just like we might be lol.

u/grahampositive Dec 06 '21

I got high once and played RD2. I started thinking about like...what separates us from NPCs? The only thing I could really think of was that we're flesh and blood and they are digital. I suddenly realized I couldn't morally say that the life of an NPC has zero moral value. I spent the rest of the night just riding my horse around and looking at the stars

That was years ago and to this day I still can't really be cruel or needlessly violent to NPCs.

I know that feeling.

I bought Monster Hunter on the Wii and the first thing it has you doing is walking up to a peacefully grazing dinosaur thing and mashing it's skull in. The thing didn't even defend itself and the others didn't attack me. It gave me a on screen promt to murder the rest and I couldn't do it and I've never played the game since.
