Do you hate games where the main character dies?

Uh not sure why it wouldn't count but whatever.


Because it's sad, but doesn' really effect your game anymore. You're done with everything.

The topic is about main characters dying, not continuing the game is irrelevant.

In the context of the OP, i'm pretty sure it still counts.

I want a game where the main char dies 3/4 of the way through it.

only if its a zombie game.

rule number 1 in a zombie game - if the character you control gets bit and dies your game is the worst game ever made.

Yeah personally I hate it.

All those efforts and hours I spend in a game to see a better future of the story have gone to waste like that. It's just my preference, but if the end is not a happy end for the main chara (which I considered to be my representative in the game), I'd rate it lower.

I can't think of any game that I've played where the main character dies.


Off the top of my head...

Mass Effect 3, The Walking Dead, LA Noir, Assassin's Creed 3, Red Dead Redemtion and Fallout 3 (before the DLC expansion). It is a possible ending in inFamous 2, Dragon Age Origins, and Mass Effect 2.

So off the top of my head that is nine games, from this generation, in which the main character dies or can die in the ending.

Yes and no.

Yes, because most of the time it's poorly done and doesn't accomplish anything story-wise. I never seen a game with a good main character dying ending. Some movies or books used this in a great way.

No, because, if used well, it could lead to a great ending.
