The Biggest Betrayal in Gaming was on May 1991 CES when Nintendo betrayed another Japanese company Sony in favor of a foreign company Philips. It was considered a serious violation of the Japanese code of honor in Japan. Nothing can top that.

But come to think of it, had they not done that, we wouldn't have a PS3 now. Still, that act by Nintendo was atrocious at best.

Oh brother!! Business is business. Lets not romantisize it with Japanese codes of blah blap blah please.
GrahamGolden  +   620d ago
why ?
because the west doenst know what code means ?

stop it already.
miyamoto  +   619d ago
What's the matter, brother? Can't handle the truth?

Is the red pill too bitter hard to swallow, for you?

No matter how you deny it, or spin it around you will just break yourself against hard documented historical facts supported by irrefutable proof & evidence.

"Sony would've owned "any IP released on the Super PS1," if...
Nintendo would've gone along it. Super Mario 64, Goldeneye 64, Mario Kart 64, Paper Mario 64 - basically any game developed and published by Nintendo during their collaboration with Sony, would've made Nintendo third party developers for Sony.

Would you sign away on a contract, giving your roomate the deed to your own house?"

Is that really the story?

What is your reliable source of info? Any link to prove your story?

Yeah, people bash on Nintendo thinking that they woke up one day and said "well, today I think I'll end the contract with Sony, it'll be fun". People don't even know the reasons Nintendo had to do that.

BUT BRO!!!!!!....... They had a "code of honour" to uphold -_-

An ancient tail tells of man named Kratos born from a vengeful Sony that wonders the game worlds with an undying hunger for revenge.

They say everything happens for a reason.

Leaving your husband for the Mailman and taking the kids with you.

"Sorry Flashbacks"

Funny, I would have said leaving the kids.

No Braid? In the end [SPOILERS] the princess we want to save spends a whole level trying to kill us. Of course, the game has all those meanings, nuclear bomb and whatnot, but looking for the princess for the whole game and end it with her running away and trying to kill me felt like a huge betrayal. [/SPOILERS]

WHOLE COMMENT IS SPOILERS

That's not how I took the ending at all.

You're standing outside her window. Maybe she knows you, maybe she doesn't, but you're standing on her balcony watching her sleep.

She wakes up. Sees you. Who isn't exactly in a pretty position based on paragraph above. She runs.

The entire story, implied meanings aside, is about your unrequited love, which leads you to being a psycho. It was a betrayal of sorts, but by the writers, and rather clever.

*SPOILER*

I'd put Master Miller from MGS, to this day I still vote that as my #1 all time plot twist in any video game

*END SPOILER*
EmiiLeo  +   619d ago
[SPOILERS]

Master Miller in MGS wasn't really a betrayal, it was just a plot twist since He was never really Miller to begin with, Miller was dead prior to the event of the Game and it was only until Liquid ripped off the shades and let his hair down that anyone realizes what had happened.
Tetsujin  +   619d ago
I remember back when I was 16 (when it first came out in 98) and I had my ideas Master was the enemy or helped them however I still played through the game because it was that fun. I also remember the whole Deepthroat/Gray Fox fiasco and how it ended at the end.
EmiiLeo  +   619d ago
Yeah, Something that i remember from my first play through of that game was when they said that the DARPA Chief had been dead for weeks, and the guy that you encountered earlier was The Chameleon disguised as him, who would have probably been another boss fight if he hadn't died suddenly right in front of you, I always wondered how that boss fight would have gone?...
Fixlarz  +   619d ago
Oh wow, first time I've played all of the listed games. Great games and great moments!
