Did you like the plot twists? (Spoilers)

I'm not certain if "plot twist" is the most accurate term, but I'm mostly referring to the 'Boss = Thomas Mutton' reveal, along with the whole nature of why men are having nightmares and his motivation; Catherine turning out to be a Succubus; and the additional intervention of gods with the 'Trisha = Ishtar' reveal. The turn Catherine's story takes in its latter half seems to have been a point of dissent among players, some appreciating it and fully expecting the occult themes, others not liking it very much.

This is the boat I'm in.

Atlus is not exactly known for subtlety (bad bad bathhouse), so I knew something strange was going to go down, so I was ok with the twists.

it was cool that you got drunk and cheated on your girlfriend and regretted it fully, that was a cool original idea. then suddenly its as if the game had a knee jerk and was like NO! WE DIDNT MAKE A GAME ABOUT CHEATING.... UHHH.... SUCCUBUS... EVIL... GODS.... THINGS.. and it was silly.

Eh. Once they finally revealed that Catherine was the succubus that they spend the entire first half of the game alluding to, I found myself not really caring about the rest of the "twist." Plus, I have to agree with Jeff's sentiments. Making her a succubus just negated all the tension about Vincent's choices. It came off as a slightly more creative version of just saying it was all a dream.

I thought Catherine being a succubus was a cop-out. They took a serious subject like infidelity and gave the main character (Vincent) a loophole because Catherine "technically" didn't exist. Except his intentions were unfaithful, because he thought she was real.

I kind of figured something was up with the bartender, but the reveal was still a surprise.

I don't dislike the game as much as some people -- it was definitely a different and enjoyable experience -- but the end (and really, the characters) fell apart for me.
