InFamous Second Son: Was Choosing Good A Bad Decision?

WC - When Second Son was revealed earlier this year, it wasn’t just the spirits of InFamous fans, and Playstation fans, that it raised. With InFamous 2 sporting two (very different) endings, it also raised a very interesting, very crucial question. Where does Second Son fit into the InFamous universe? Is it a prequel? Would one of the two ending be considered as canon? Or would the developers venture down a new path entirely? (inFamous: Second Son, PS4)

I can see why people who only played the bad ending might consider the choice of good as canon to be a disappointment but you have to consider part of what makes the InFamous games great, power.

A big part of the fun of InFamous, at least for me, was the feeling that you were a superhero/villan with great power in a modern day open world setting. If the bad ending was to be canon we would be a powerful guy in a world full of powerful guys, it just wouldn't feel the same

I believe they could have continued the Cole Trilogy because in the end of infamous 2 good ending Cole's boat back home (after his death) it was shocked by lightning. now my thought is that the sudden shock of the lightning could have brought him back to life, BUT it woud have killed Zeke (if you remember Zeke died in the end of the EVIL ending and Cole got The Beast's powers) now that Zeke is dead Cole goes insanely EVIL and blaming himself
AND the lightning strike could have had some of The Beast's power. And Cole could have the power of Kessler in the end of the game and starts to blame himself and goes back in time to do what Kessler did in the first game. Thats TWO thoughts for INFAMOUS 3 AND INFAMOUS 4. Just a Thought. ^_^

Wow that would have been one of the worst written ways to extent a character ever. A man is so happy Suckerpunch didn't force it with that stretching ending.

it could be a prequel to infamous 1, Cole's father could have been working on a Ray Sphere prototype that went horribly wrong OR a Government "ACCIDENT" (Meaning big underground Government cover up or a perfect test run for BIOLOGICAL WEAPONS OF MASS DESTRUCTION OR BWMD for short) And another theory is that Cole is dead and his father had TWO SONS OR Moya (From Infamous 1) cloned Cole in a Government Lab.
Just a Thought. ^_^
Well i mean it was our decision actually. 78% of us anyway.
