First off I would like to cheat a bit and change my answer from Day 9- The saddest game scene, because I didn’t take it seriously as I was struggling to think of something. Then yesterday I read a post by Hairless Ginger about Undertale and was reminded of when I was watching a Let’s Play (from the Game Grumps/Steam Train guys if you’re interested) of the Undertale genocide run – Spoilers ahead! During the genocide run there is a part where you have to fight one of the most beloved characters, Papyrus, and rather than attack you back he will spare you and tell you that you can still turn everything around until finally it’s just his head left and he says “I believe in you” but then, being the genocide run, you still kill him. I remember sneakily watching the Let’s Play at work (I usually just listen to them but I was hooked on the story for this one) and I got really upset and had to go to the bathroom in case I cried. It was worse as well because in the Let’s Play they played the pacifist run first so I liked the character and knew what could happen if you weren’t killing everything.
On to Day 10 – Best Gameplay
I’m going to say my all time favourite for this one: Neverwinter Nights. It’s the game that fully cemented my love of RPGs, the story is so good, the characters are great, the music is great, I love the D&D inspired play style of it, it’s incredibly immersive… I just love it. Everything about it screams “you’re off on a magical adventure!!!”. Character building is fun too, I once made a Dragon Disciple which meant she could breathe fire and had wings. I could go on about this forever, but I’ve already done a post about it so I would just be repeating it all.
Which game do you think has the best gameplay? Have you ever played Undertale on the genocide run? If so, how?
