Big twists in a video game?

    Name a huge twist in a video game that otherwise completely changed everything, or one that you want to see happen.

    So far I've never seen a game where it turns out that if you lose the last fight/mission, you get the bad cutscene where the enemies successfully win and you move on to a dark segment of the story. It's always when you lose, it's just game over; how come there can't be a game where the storyline is different based on whether you won or lost a certain important mission/fight?

    KOTOR has a pretty bitchin' twist.

    Well, because losing a fight woul usually result in your character dying.
    Don't get me wrong, it would be cool to play as a ghost... but it would ruing the feel of a lot of games.

    I think Mass Effect has a really thought provoking twist. Where it turns out Saren, the main antagonist at that point, isn't quite as evil as he's made out to be at first.

    I HATE twists in video games, mainly because of these two:

    Star Ocean 2 (PS1) - It was all fine and dandy until...
    You ran into the "Wise Men" out of nowhere. You were suppose to investigate the glove and then you bump into these knuckleheads. That, and when you found out Rena was from planet Nede.


    Star Ocean: Till the End of Time (PS2) - Again, it was fine and dandy until...
    You found you that you're a character in a video game. What. The. Heck!? That was so anti-climatic to get to that point in the game. No wonder so many people quit playing after finding that out.

    I hope they stop with the twist in the Star Ocean series. I dislike them. A lot!

    Prince of Persia 2 had a good twist IMO:

    That sandwraith creature you see earlier in the game actually turned out to be the Prince in the past, because he found this fate-defying mask.

    I think the standard twist is to find out that you or one of your allies is actually the villain.

    In Star Wars The Force Unleashed when you actually learn that Palpatine and Vader were responsible for the creation of the Rebel Alliance! What irony!
