Keep in mind I'll take other suggestions. That feature has not ended, something I'd like to stress.
Fuck yeah! You played Star Fox 64 and vaguely alluded to my name, I feel so... special. But yes I agree with all those things, that game is bad-ass, it has the best dialogue ever and also the greatest voice acting. Hey Einstein, I'm on your side! edit: Gotta agree with Soul Reaver 2 on the best plot twist though. Holy jesus that series has a fucking awesome story line, closest thing to an actual great fantasy show/movie series in games. INSANELY good story, twists and turns like crazy but god is it awesome. Soul Reaver 2 would be great to review as well, I think, it holds up decently. Just read up on Legacy of Kain and Soul Reaver 1, those haven't aged as well.
Isn't the term "visual novel" redundant? That's like saying I listen to a lot of audio music.
The best plot twists I've found are in Japanese visual novels, which I'm not really sure count as Video Games.
When Mario gets to the castle at the end of world 1-4, and this freaking Toad guy tells me the Princess is in another castle. Woah, woah, but I just beat king koopa! You mean that koopa was a lie, and I have to go through this all over again eight more times? Man, what a twist!
The abundant amount of distorted plot twists nearin the end of MGS2.
When Otacon turns evil and ya gotta strangle him. (SNAKECAST REFERENCES!)
Bioshock twist for me. I don't play enough RPG's to know any other good ones.
" @TheMustacheHero: Cite other examples. Besides, I'm honest and have this odd desire to always be right :P. "
" @dudacles: Eh, I didn't think so for the latter. I didn't feel into it while I was typing it. "
Great reviews man.
" YOU ARE DARTH REVAN "

"@Khann: Don't most people type similarly to the way they speak? "

Wow I remember Starfox 64 so well but my current favourite would have to be Bioshock's twist with Atlus/Fontaine and even Crackdown's ending was pretty messed up where the agency set up the gangs just to get your character ready.
" @Red: Especially on all the Darth Revan. I haven't played the game, damn it!
Unfortunately games haven't really been the same since the N64 days. Well, that's not true. Games haven't been the same to ME since then. I just don't get the same enjoyment anymore. I mean, don't get me wrong, I still enjoy games... it's just not the same. I just realised that I type like I talk, and don't bother making a whole lot of sense with my structure... oh well.
I'd say it's a tie between Darth Revan and finding out that you just killed Ninian in Fire Emblem. Oh yeah. Spoilers.
Darth Revan, nuff said.
I really don't know to be honest.. I do remember her excitedly showing me (with her stupid chihuahua with way too long claws along side) some branching thing she'd found near the end. Maybe that was it or something? I never actually passed the game myself... I don't think. Maybe I did. Wish I could go back to the N64 days.. my best days of gaming for sure. Goldeneye, Lylat Wars, Mischief Makers, Blast Corps, SM64, Yoshi's Island (love that theme song)... so many good games. Oops, nearly forgot Ocarina of Time!
YOU ARE DARTH REVAN
Oh man Star Fox... well Lylat Wars in my country... so many good memories. I don't remember it much, been what... over 10 years now since I played it, but man, I still remember that damn train level (I think it was a train). But I think the coolest thing about this game was my grandma. She was like 63 at the time, and she never played video games ever, but for some reason, she absolutely loved Lylat Wars. She must have passed that game atleast 5 times.
