Chris ending discussion (SPOILERS)

#1CHAOSnPANCAKESPosted 10/18/2013 5:47:41 PM
Finally got around to beating Chris's campaign, so sorry if there has already been 100 topics about this. But man, did anybody else get the feels after that ending? Imo, I thought it would have made more sense for Chris to sacrifice himself than Piers; but man those feels... Thoughts?

The only decent ending in the game so it wins by default. I think it was pretty well done all around, but I'd rather it have been Piers. It makes no sense to get rid of an iconic character over a new comer who is just a younger version of Chris.

Overall, I felt campaign had several moments. I felt Ada's Trap, Conflict, and the few scenes before the ending (including the ending) were all pretty good.

Well it was sad that Piers had to die when he's actually a great guy when Chris was clouded with his desire for revenge. But there's one thing I noticed with Chris, that there always has to be someone who sacrifices for him. Like when Jill tackled Wesker out of the window, and when Sheva decided to just let go and take Wesker with her out of the plane, and now Piers had to be left inside the facility so that Chris could survive. But I don't know, it's just me.

Take it from me. You're always better off with a really good lie.

It was not bad. The best endings i think. I would have wished leons to have ended differently. Maybe he arrives home and sees ada and the two walk inside. Then end credits. That would have been better than the graveyard scene.

If by "dem feels" you mean relief that Piers is dead because he was pretty damn annoying? Yeah I got dem feels pretty good.

I half expected him to be the one converted you know. With all that 'elevator talk' of passing on the torch etc...

However, much like Jill's shocking implementation in RE5 LoN...I'd wager that most of the fans would've struck backlash to see a longtime protagonist gone.

That said, it was kind of sad to see how Piers ends up all because they chose to finish off Carla's pet abomination.

I actually wish Jake had been the one to 'volunteer' offing the monstrosity at Sherry's protests.....and barely survive the end, cause you know 'Weskerblood syndrome'...

Completely disagree

Instead of making Chris gone like a hero [], they chose to shove
irrelevant generic tool down fandom's throat by the single act of his sacrifice.
Sorry to say, but it didn't work. For me, that ending didn't make Peirs a better char.
All it did is - now sacrifice means practically nothing in RE.
At least gay guys like this "tragic" bromance...

Honestly, this. Were it not for Piers' sacrifice, his character would've been completely unremarkable. I hated his character, his development, and I feel than Helena and Sheva were much better characters than him. And I can't believe I'm saying this, but as much as I despise Jake, I still like him over Piers.

Nowhere did I say I liked Piers or said he was a good character. I simply stated that Chris dying is stupid. In general I dislike it when tortured characters die. For some reason, I feel some of the best character development comes from being tortured. And to have a guy go through as much crap as Chris has, only to die (whether it be heroic or not) is really lame. Same goes for Jill or Leon.

Really, Helena is better than Piers? Surely you just
