I'm referring to the 5 trials Ethan had to go through. Did you do them all? Did you realize it just wasn't worth it and stopped? For me I couldn't kill the guy (the 4th trial) When it came to killing another person, let alone someone with 2 kids, you realize your just as bad, if not worse then the killer. When the 5th trial came around I couldn't bring myself to drink the poison. I figured he had been through hell, and I felt that he really deserved to live. I had 3/5 clues and I thought it was enough.
However I will not go any further as to what happened, I just wanna know how far you went. Simply because of the multiple endings I would rather not spoil them or have them spoiled for me so if you could refrain from posting how the game turned out i would greatly appreciate it.
I didn't kill the guy either but there was many good reasons to. He was a drug dealer, it's possible the picture is fake and he doesn't have kids, he tried to kill you as well, you're son is your blood. I regretted the kill when I remembered there's a trophy for doing all 5 but I have to do another playthrough anyways.
I did drink the poison because of a trophy and just for the hell of it. You don't actually die (you did post spoilers in the title so deal with it)
My Ethan completed all the trials. As my mindset went, after feeling as though I didn't do enough to save Jason, I would do whatever was necessary to save Shaun. Redemption, if you will. BTW, killing the drug dealer was nicely done.
I drove the highway, finished the power station, cut off my finger with a ax and sutchered with a hit ass pole, killed the drug dealer and didn't take the poison. I reasoned, I wouldn't have left my kid alone and ruined, just enough time to say goodbye. There HAD to be another way. turns out in my case it was. **** that drug dealer. everyone has a sad story in life. I honestly played the game, doing everything I would have had. But i never had second thoughts about killing that ******* dealer, especially after he tried to kill me.
