The Top 7… games with mega plot twists you never saw coming

A good plot twist in a game is like being attacked by a ninja. It’s shocking, unexpected and will leave you feeling like you’ve just had a chunk of your spleen cut out with a katana. Admittedly, none of the following megaton twists spring from the shadows at you in tight fitting black pyjamas. But we still never saw any of them coming. Now, would you kindly read on?

Aww, no Assassin's Creed? That twist with Al Mualim at the end was the greatest plot twist ever imo.

I don't know about that.
I saw the twist coming because really... where else would the story go? Granted, I was never quite sure about Al-Mualim (sometimes he acted like a saint)... but it was always something in the back of my mind. So can't really say I never saw it coming.

MGS3's ending came out of no-where. I've never felt so much emotional abuse with one game's ending as I did with SnakeEater. You go from feeling sad to feeling happy to getting turned-on to feeling betrayed to feeling angry to feeling flat-out depressed... while being crowned a hero.

Also... GTA4, Michelle... I made a joke about her being a secret government agent investigating illegal immigrants when I first met her... turns out my prediction was closer to the truth than I thought.

However, I can't really argue with what's on the list. All of them were great twists.
(Except, some can argue SystemShock2 did the twist better than Bioshock)

Gotta say MGS3 was probably the best story in a game I have ever experienced.

@ Fatman

You don't know about my opinion?

I thought the Heavy Rain one was cheap, they used a bad method for the person being the killer, they let you do something and then change what actually happened later on. That's the cheapest way to throw someone off the killer in anything.

Edit---KOTOR I love you and your demonic twist, it completely changed the way I played the game up until then, started out as a nice little jedi. Finshed up as the most powerful sith

The MW2 one was pretty awesome... And sad

big_silky2986d ago

good list except for heavy rain, that twist should have been obvious to anyone who has ever seen or read any type of thriller or mystery. not to disparage the game but that was pretty hack and cliche.

Till some point , unless you were randomly accusing anyone who didnt fit the bad guy impression , it was unlikely to foresee .

Especially when the game even throw you in a loop , be it on purpose or via a case of bad writing, , with contradictary thoughts from the character .

Kran2986d ago

Trust Call of Duty to be there :P

blind-reaper2986d ago

no MGS4??? FAIL MGS4 have the biggest plot twist in game history, it changed the "history" of the whole series in the last 30 minutes of the game.

Baka-akaB2986d ago

to be fair any mgs game would fit the same bill ...

RedDead2986d ago

Nah, that plot twist semed unnecessary, it was just thrown in at the end.
