I've been reading a lot of the "post-game reactions" thread and I'm awfully surprised how many people thought there'd be a suicide. The idea probably (and briefly) popped up once, but I am almost certain it would end up the way it did from almost the beginning. I was just more terrified of the dark as I would be if i were home alone and not turning on all the lights; NOT worrying all the time if she is dead or not. I guess the realism the game presents made me not think she'd be going by such extreme measures.
Is this a cultural thing? I went through high school in North America only feeling as an outsider so I never really experienced what it means to be a North American teenager. I don't know how dark teenage/emo angst gets.
on a side note, not really impressed by the game. I thought I got more emotion out of Papers Please.
