Did anybody ever try to explain a game's plot accurately to you, but you were sure they were making shit up because it sounded so retarded?

This wasn't as retarded as the explanation in MGS4.

>MGS2
>Ocelot gets possessed by the "spirit" of Liquid (through his nanomachines)

>MGS4
>Actually that's not true and I was just pretending to be possessed all along.
>>
>>406708056
I've had other kids bullshit me alot about "cool" shit they could do in games when I was younger but that's different I guess.
>>
>play game
>plot made no sense
>look up explanation
>what the fuck is this even the same game?
>turns out all necessary lore had to be picked up from official guides and interviews not even available in English
gee thanks a lot type-0

literally every side character in mgs2
>huzzah, i'm not what you think i am. i had you fooled, moron
>>
>>406708571
MGS2 doesn't even have a good explanation for why this arm shit was happening. MGS3 is the one that indirectly explains it by making Ocelot the son of a paranormal ghost man.
>>
>>406708571

As ridiculous as it sounded it would have been consistent with the universe that brought us fucking Psycho Mantis and The Sorrow.

>>406708056
This is the thing people MIGHT fall for this story but the whole “liquids ghost via his surgically attached arm” was written to fool A COMPUTERISED A.I.

THEY SAY IT A BUNCH OF TIMES IN MGS4. WHY WOULD A COMPUTER FALL FOR THIS??
>>
>>406709885
Fuck ACII was an ugly fucking game. PS2 tier BUT I ACTUALLY MEAN IT UNIRONICALLY
>>
>>406708571
Naw man, the OFFICIAL explanation is even dumber. Apparently, Ocelot really DID have Liquid's actual arm and he really WAS being possessed, but he found having no control over when and where he got possessed to be a pain in the ass so he got rid of the arm and hypnotized himself into thinking he was possessed full time because it worked out better for his plans.
>>
>>406710120
Because Ocelot is the son of the Sorrow who actually did have freaky ghost powers.

That one makes total sense man. The character who had that made is literally a fusion of Revolver Ocelot and Liquid Snake. Creating something like that is pretty much exactly what you'd expect out of him.

>>Trying to explain Elder Scrolls lore to people

What lore are you talking about?

The dragon gods and akatosh and shit, or the full blown CHIM, because that's not really necessary to understand to whack bandits with a sword
>>
>>406713871
Because the computer was created by Zero, who personally knew the Sorrow and understood full well that supernatural powers actually exist in this universe.

what
>>
>>406714185
Supernatural powers actually do exist in the MGS universe. Ocelot was the son of the Sorrow, who has freaky ghost powers. The reason Liquid's ghost could possess him was because of that heritage. But Ocelot's talent was too unstable, and it was actually causing more problems for him than it was helping, so he decided hypnotism and NANOMACHINES would work out better.

In any case, ghost possession is absolutely a thing in Metal Gear.
>>
>>406714535
MGS is weird. In MGS 5 4 separate people control Volgin flopping dead body. Well it's the will of 4 different people driving him on.
>>
>>406715090
MGS is kind of bizarre in that later games continuously "explain" previous freaky supernatural shit with "scientific" explanations, and yet also insists that real supernatural powers still do exist. Volgin, the Sorrow and Psycho Mantis are all legitimate psychics, and while Screaming Mantis' telekinesis was actually a trick utilizing invisible strings and nanomachines, her telepathy was actually the real deal.

It's not headcanon. Major Zero was the one who commanded the creation of the Patriots AIs. Major Zero was also definitely acquainted with the Boss and the Sorrow.

Nope, literally the parasites from MGSV.
>>
>>406713587
I don't understand any part of Kingdom Hearts starting from the first game
>>
>>406716093
Only the Pain and the End's powers were the result of parasites. The Fear's abilities were due to training, surgical alterations and an experimental Stealth Camo prototype, while the Fury was just an angry man in a space suit. The Boss was just a really fucking good soldier. But the Sorrow is a legit psychic.

>So, it starts off with Snake, sneaking into russia to stop them from launching a nuke via nuke catapult thats horribly inefficent and needs a 3 mile long runway to launch, but it can do it anywhere!
>Anyways, after that Jack joins the illuminati, but they betray him and take his DNA and make 3 kids with them
>Jack gets mad and starts making PMC's and off shore Oil rigs
>Eventually Jack encounters a bi-pedal nuclear tank and blows it up on his oil rig
>Then, a fag named huey comes along, and they start hoarding nukes and huey sells them out to the UN which turns out to be a bunch of cunts instead, and they blow up the oil rig
>Their helicopter gets blown up and Jack puts himself into a 9 year coma with this guy named big medic
>To pull a funny prank on big medic, everyone makes him think hes Big Boss, while the REAL big boss is doing dumb shit far away
>Now, theres a weird parasite that goes around eating peoples lungs if they speak english or something, but that gets swept under the rug after this game so it doesnt matter
>Then, Snakes 3 illegitimate sons grow up, Solidus, Liquid, and Solid, and Liquid is a cunt who eventually hoards nukes and builds more bi-pedal mechs after it's announced Big Boss is dead, and he demands for Big Bosses body or he'll blow up everyone
>So the fucking CIA, kidnaps a hobo, skins him, and gives him to the terrorists, who believe it's his real body! Then Solid, fights Liquid and kills him
>Then, after that another similar incident happens, this time with solidus who was the president or something for like 30 years, and half the game is spent as a fag named raiden
>THEN, a couple years later, Ocelot gets older and makes a gigantic submarine, AND spends his time making MOUNT FUCKING SNAKEMORE, WHICH IS A MOUNTAIN WITH SNAKES FACE CARVED INTO IT

>>406716693
>and then you meet Ocelot, ontop of a fucking submarine and he tells you to murder him or else he will emp the world sending it back to the dark ages because... reasons?
>So you win, and snake commits suicide, but NOT REALLY, HAHA GET REKT KIDDOS and he meets the REAL BIG BOSS, who tells him to join him
>So, first Big Boss makes a small island called "Shadow Moses" or something, where a soldier can still be a soldier and be useful after war, I dunno it sounds dumb and is, and Big Medic (remember him?) goes in and kills Solid Snake who was pretending to be Big Boss
>Then the REAL Big Boss makes zanibar land, which was a fucking gigantic base filled with like 500,000 people and they send Big Medic in again, who FINALLY FUCKING KILLS BIG BOSS
The above statement might be wrong but I don't really care
>Then, like 3 years later Raiden (remember him?) becomes a cool cyborg ninja, and fucks shit up and murders some other robot ninja's in arguably the best game in the series, and he also kills a meme spouting senator and edgelord.

I love mgs but yeah that arm shit was fucking dumb. Sometimes kojima should just take a step back and look at the game he's working on and ask himself, "is this actually good for the lore or just retarded nonsense?"
>>
>>406719549
Retarded nonsense is what makes MGS good, trying to make it make sense was a mistake.
