Whoo boy... I'm sure many who've already made it that far will have already predicted this would involve the torture sequence. I just now finished that particular mission and, well, I feel fucking rotten. I had already noticed a few posts on the boards here and there referencing a torture sequence, so when it came it didn't necessarily surprise me. But still... man, Rockstar actually put in an interactive torture sequence, complete with a set of toys to choose from.
I decided to go with the wrench first, since out of the options available that seemed to be the most.. humane. That is until Trevor fucking bursts the guy's balls with the damn thing! Gah, and the pliers! Shitting Hell, as soon as I picked that one up I instantaneously knew of my mistake. As soon as the game asked me to grab a hold of a tooth, I was pressing every other button in the hope that I could back out of it. Since no such option existed unfortunately, I then grabbed it, and then actually felt like turning the damn game off when it wanted me rotate the right analogue to pull the thing out. Teeth are most definitely a weakness of mine; nightmares involving my teeth falling out have been pretty common for me (and many others, I'm to believe) over the past few years, and having to rip one out--complete with blood spray and begging, which then leads to cries of agony--was just awful. Never has a game made me feel this guilty.
After that I went back to the wrench because... well, again, it seemed the most acceptable. Trevor then broke the guy's arm. My final act to get all the information I needed was by electrocuting the guy via his nipples, which after everything before it barely elicited a reaction. For as horrible an act as that is, it felt like I had already done so much that what's a small electric shock... Rather that than another tooth.
I was at least happy to see Trevor didn't kill the poor sod once it was over, but dumping him at the airport with a broken arm and slurring all over the place, forcing him to abandon his family at that, didn't exactly leave me feeling like I had redeemed myself. Which I'm sure was intentional, as giving him any more assistance would have no doubt seemed out of character,
Anywhoo, I'm not trying to start some sort of crusade against Rockstar or anything like that. After all, Trevor is truly an absolute piece of shit, and GTA games aren't exactly rife with happy pleasantries. But still, I can't remember ever feeling this ugly during any of their prior games. I know I was extremely remorseful when I went down the path that resulted in Roman getting shot in GTAIV -- so much so that I cowardly reloaded my save to take the other option, after Mallorie revealed that she was pregnant during one of the post-game phone calls. That's the only other occasion that seems comparable from what I can remember in any case.
I'm sure I'll get past it soon enough, and it's not like I'm going to 'take a stand' and stop playing or what have you. Still, that shit got to me, and I wanted to share. So, on that note, how did everyone else handle the torture scene? Which items did you use ect.,
Oh, and I hope to God that smug FIB prick gets his... But don't tell me anywhoo :P
