I better not be playing as Artyom because he died in the book Metro 2033, Of course he didnt save the dark ones in the book either...
Artyom is contacted by the dark ones throughout the game because all they want is peace with their human brothers and sisters, twords the end of the game you kill one and he says "He does not understand, we only desire peace." If the player shoots the missle launch system then you get the good ending, if the player does not you get the bad ending. The good ending is the ending that most closly reflects the book.
" @AlisterCat: Im just glad there was no resoultion because from what ive seen of manga and what ive read into the backround story seta falls for naoto's shyness and subtle charm. I love seta+naoto, chie is a close second though, then yuki-chan, rise didnt appeal to me at all for some reason. "
Wait, so you're saying that MC-Naoto is the canon pairing? "
Won't believe it until I see it. In my mind, the Lovers arcana should be the canon love interest. It only makes sense, no? "
