Absolutely Killzone 2. Since K3 scrapped the awesome weighty feel of the weapons I kinda stopped caring about FPS games.

CoD 4 as well I guess, it revolutionized the genre.

There's also another HUGE piece of evidence in favor of them being the same person. Hannah mentions that when they were young, they wanted to follow Bob Dylan on a tour, and drove around in a cab; but the cab driver questioned their age so he took them to the police.

And here's the thing: Hannah says that her mom took them from the police station, where she blamed everything on her friend Eve. But if Eve were real then the mom would have seen them together at that very moment! They were literally caught by the police, there is no 'Eve went to hiding' on this one, if they were two people then the mom would have arrived into a police station and see her daughter ALONG WITH AN IDENTICAL TWIN and absolutely lose her shit. But, seeing how Eve is made up, the mom saw the 'it's my friend Eve's fault' excuse as either as a made up excuse of a child who has an imaginary friend (or is talking about a real friend who is not there at the moment).

I was very convinced that they were the same person and "the attic" was just her brain. I don't normally jump to ridiculous conspiracies, but honestly, it actually seems slightly less ridiculous then the alternative. The way they talk about each other is so insane, mental illness was my first assumption. I guess it's time to go through the tapes again.

Holy shit, that DOES make a lot of sense since she explicitly says that once Heve (yes that's my name for them) and Simon moved into the old house, Simon never went into the attic. Which, like, come on, who does that unless you have like a hornet hive or a bear nest up there.

And also the attic is where the other is hidden away when one of them is 'out there'.

You are a genius sir!

In a game that is all about picking up on the slightest hints and the most subtle ques, just straight up showing a person with and without a clearly visible tattoo seems like a pretty crude way to reveal the biggest mystery in the game. Whoop-de-fucking-doo, this person doesn't have an obviosly placed tattoo the size of an apple in the middle of their arm, so they can't be the same people!

It just seems like a total red herring to me. I mean, if in some interviews the woman had blonde hair, we wouldn't take it to prove that these are two different people, would we?

You can get a tattoo in a pack of chips. If anything, the idea that Hannah/Eve had it made to fool the police into pursuing a non-existent twin seems more probable to me.

That coupled with the implausible logistics behind two actual human beings being one person throughout 30 or so years makes me inclined to believe that Hannah and Eve are the same person.

Keep in mind that this doesn't have to be a medically accurate case of a split personality disorder. If anything, the woman has two personalities that attempt to match each other in every way. And I don't think the author would expect the reader to be well-versed with the specifics of the extent of a mental disease.

Of course the brilliance of the game is to not have a conclusive scenario, and I could be totally wrong on this.

EDIT: There's also another HUGE piece of evidence in favor of them being the same person. Hannah mentions that when they were young, they wanted to follow Bob Dylan on a tour, and drove around in a cab; but the cab driver questioned their age so he took them to the police.

And here's the thing: Hannah says that her parents took them from the police station, where she blamed everything on her friend Eve. But if Eve were real then the parents would have seen them together at that very moment!

Some people just can grow facial hair better than others. You seem to not have that gift.

I kinda know your struggle though, I've always wanted to try rocking a beard or at least a groomed stubble. But at the rate my hair is growing right now I'll be able to think about having hair on my face once the hair on my head starts to fall off...

You look good clean shaven though.

@finaldasa:

But how do we decide when someone should get hospital visitation?

If a person wants another person to be able to get hospital visit they could just... write a document saying who they want to visit them. And sign it. This is a non-existent problem.
Why should the government even get to dicatate that my straight or gay spouse is the only one who can get visitation? Maybe I want my girlfriend to get visitation. Maybe I want my very good friend to have it. Or maybe a professor, or a boss. People shouldn't have to marry someone just to be allowed to be visited in the hospital.

How do we prevent people getting married only to get a tax break?

If tax breaks are good, everyone should have them. If tax breaks are bad, nobody should have them. Why is a tax break bad if it's outside of marriage, and good within it?

How to we determine who makes medical decisions?

See point one. 'I hereby declare that XY can make legally binding health decisions on my behalf should I be in an emergency situation.' Signed, stamped by a lawyer, 50 bucks in attorney fees. Much cheaper and more efficient than getting married just to be able to let someone make decisions for you in a dire scenario.

This is what I mean when I say that in many cases, a state issued marriage license solves a problem that wouldn't exist without that very state saying 'you can't do this unless you get a license'. It's like me breaking your leg, selling you a crutch and saying 'see, without me you wouldn't be able to walk'.
