It's just a Game

February 18, 2021

Have found an interesting video:

Hmm…. I wonder how deep we can go when we wouldn’t constraint ourselves with cinematics from the AAA-tier games of the 2010+… In no particular order, trying to not spoil anything:

  • Darksiders I - “No. Not alone”.
  • Warframe - “And take its pain away” (fuck, it brings tears to my eyes just typing this out)
  • Nier: Automata - “Look my way”, 9S playthrough opening level, “Become as gods”, Pascal’s mistake, “Do you still wish to rescue someone - a total stranger - in spite of this?”
  • Sid Meyer’s Alpha Centauri - the Ascent to Transcendence
  • Planescape: Torment - Fortress of Regrets last stand
  • Mass Effect 2 - suicide mission
  • This War of Mine
  • Bioshock" Infinite - Booker breaks out of the loop
  • Defcon - Defcon 1
  • Max Payne - intro level
  • Max Payne 2 - normal ending
  • To the Moon - ending
  • Death Stranding - Cliff Unger’s backstory, Amelie’s plan, Mama’s backstory, Higgs’s story and duel with him, Heartman’s backstory
  • Homeworld - intro
  • Braid - final rewind
  • Fate/Stay Night - “Emiya”
