Do you deserve forgiveness in Metro: Last Light?

VB - In Metro 2033, you turned the same weapons that changed the surface into a wasteland against a sentient, peaceful species out of your own fears. Do you fully understand what you've done? Do you deserve forgiveness? (Metro: Last Light, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

A good write up on the plot. [spoilers] I really enjoyed traveling the surface with the Dark One. Listening to his brief commentary about various scenarios that the player encountered really enhanced the story. An example of this was when you ran into the "souls" that were reaching out to you, and he says something along the lines of "they are just lonely". It completely turns around a situation that might be disturbing, into something sad and made me, at least, feel more pity than dread. [end spoilers]

Anyways, great game in my opinion and I look forward to future games set in this universe (if the devs are up for it).

I totally agree. The game is amazing and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

I hadn't actually played Metro 2033 until last year, but it was for a brief moment. I loaded it up again like 2 weeks before the release of Last Light. That game was also amazing and pushed me to get Last Light.

This game improves upon Metro 2033 by a mile. I've played through it twice and gone through many of the chapters again to collect Artyom's diary pages and do some of the achievements. I will be going through it a few more times to finish the rest of the achievements off.

I'm just so happy I got into Metro. Hoping for a sequel.

I really enjoyed collecting those diary pages. Usually collecting a large amount of a specific item in-game doesn't enhance the story in a meaningful way, but I liked what it added to Last Light.

The passages that talk about where the mutants came from, and whether they were truly born from the aftermath of nuclear war, or if they had lived underground all this time and finally took control of the surface. Or the passage that talks about the origin of the Dark Ones (could they have been a military experiment originating from D6 before the apocalypse). Those types of questions, even though not major story elements (and not necessarily true), add a nice layer of intriguing possibilities to think about and shows the character wondering about the world he lives in.
