What is your favorite Persona 4 Endurance Run statistic?

#1 Posted by frakasattack (26 posts) -

The last time I watched the entire thing I counted that VInny said, "Nanako" 194 times (!!!) and Jeff said 10 things that kind of lead me to realize that he had finished the game before Vinny. What are your favorites?

I don't have an answer for you at this time, but I'd just like to mention that I don't believe Jeff had ever finished the game on his own. He had, at one point, gotten spoiled by someone who had sent him a fan comic and they (Jeff and/or Vinny) most likely learned about the way to obtain the True Ending without having played it themselves.

Simply put, 99:59 at the end of the game, especially because Persona 4's save file will register play times of over 100hrs. (Yes, that means we got more than 100hrs of footage because Contrarian Kings will happen, as will BUFUs.)

There's a middle ground here:
 
Jeff didn't finish the game, but very, very obviously knew several plot points(he admitted this) and  how to obtain the ending through a combination of comments, PMs and looking stuff up.

@mutha3: That's what I was implying by "most likely learned about the way to obtain the True Ending without having played it themselves."

This is easily my favorite.

Are you sure he looked stuff up? I remember when he was angry about the assholes that sent him the comic with spoilers in like the fourth frame, though.

Does kind of ruin it for me when I hear Jeff pointing out things that he might not know, like suspecting Adachi so early on, and very clearly knowing the path to the true ending. I'd rather it have been a lot more transparent.

Still the sheesh counter has to be pretty great. They never did it though.

I don't think he was looking up plot points intentionally, no. But he admitted on a bombcast that he knew who the killer was thanks to the comments(which led to him going "GEE THAT ADACHI GUY SURE IS SUSPICIOUS" since in the ER). And then there's the whole Hiimdaisy fiasco......
 
As for the endings: definitely. There is no way that they didn't knew exactly what they (or at least Jeff)were doing during those segments were the endings triggered.

So glad that's the case. It makes the whole thing too prefect.

Some insane motherfucker actually kept track how often it was said.
 
.....It wasn't that often, though. Less than 30 times I believe.

Yes, the 99:59 playtime was amazing.  Even at the very end, the game gave us one last laugh.

To be fair, I totally deduced that Adachi was the killer way before they did. I was pretty proud of myself when it turned out to be true.

@ajamafalous: .....Well, I think pretty much everyone managed to deduce that the bumbling, fool with the perfect opportunity who bears no importance to tha plot  was the killer:P
 
But having it confimed for you that Adachi is the real killer still kind of really sucks, though. When(if?) the game manages to throw you off from thinking it was him with Namatame, there is that whole sequence with Namtame.... which is a lot more poignant if you actually think he might be the killer.

Oh god you just reminded me. That was so great.
