What’s The Worst Plot Twist In A Video Game?
So you’re walking along a corridor and everything seems just fine in the game you’re playing. Suddenly an enemy pops up, you shoot him and he turns into a dictionary. Oh God! This is an educational game!
I honestly can’t presently think of a game with a twist that ruined things for me but then perhaps I’ve repressed those memories. However, I have been watching Homeland recently, perhaps with a little too much zeal, and one thing that really stood out is how precariously the series manages its plot twists.

It could all so easily fall apart with one bad decision or poorly executed twist but the showrunners have held it together thus far and that’s frankly surprising since trying to be clever or unexpected usually derails everything up to that point in a series, game or movie.
That’s why Heroes went off the reservation and I’m still not a huge fan of the way things suddenly turned supernatural in the Uncharted series. Although in those cases the rest of the game was just too damn great.
So rack your brain and let us know which game had a plot twist that was so contrived or out of the blue that it messed up the experience.
