List the games you're gonna spoil in the description, smart people.
Dio Falkner (1 day ago)
No matter which one you put in the list, i already knew James from SH2 would be Number 1.

Nr. 1 - KOTOR

Second playthrough of "Nier: Gestalt," got me; when I suddenly realized what...well, whom I was actually killing
Shaun being Father somehow beats player being Revan? Err, I think your list is broken.

The first Witcher game and Metal Gear Solid V have the most mind blowing plot twists ever.

"Sorry Mario, but the Princess it's in another Castle" That has to be the biggest Plot twist EVEEEEEEEER!!!
Zhin The Tyrant (11 days ago)
Wow, thanks for the completely unrelated and uncalled for movie spoilers at the start there man. Really appreciate it. Especially on a video about FUCKING VIDEO GAMES! Fuck you, and fuck this channel. I'm fucking out of here.

Ok, Undertale true ending was better than most of this list
Craig Adams (11 days ago)
Lance Vance's heel turn blew my mind when he betrayed 16 year old me back in the day.

Nier automata!! That ending was 10/10
Eli David Ortiz (12 days ago)
How did you not see the Dead Space twist coming?
Kyle Dare (12 days ago)
“Would you kindly...” haven’t even watched the vid yet and the title alone makes me immediately think of that.

Any twist from the Zero Escape franchise could make the cut

Fallout 4 was obvious.
James Collins (14 days ago)
No one saw the old man shaun thing coming. I knew that was coming the moment I heard cryogenic.

Fallout 4 = Boston, Massachusetts, not Bolton outside Manchester off the A666

Wow. Was that what happened in dead space? I dont remember it right
Mathew Hurst (16 days ago)
Of all the game's ever made you had to put cod in yet another video...
Gretschory (16 days ago)
Okay so Dead Space and Fallout 4 where blatently obvious. I do not think that many people fell for that. Fallout 4 in particular. I remember telling my flatmate "Yeah, watch it. You actually woke up some 50 to 100 yrs later again and your son will be the bad guy." That was after we both only played the intro.
Mrs Jacob Seed (16 days ago)
Bolton is bad but its not quite post apocalyptic
Austin Seefeldt (16 days ago)
“Balton” = Boston

The fact that there was no cake, was a huge twist in Portal!
Haley Lamm (22 days ago)
No dragon age inquisition where it turns out Corypheus wasn’t the true villain and instead it was the person who’s been with the inquisition since the very beginning? Not even mentioning the additional plot twist about his true identity?
Teepo (23 days ago)
Nier: Automata got me good. Anything that happened after ending [A]. It went from " okay, i'll take that " to " no way " really fast for me..
Rose REDACTED (24 days ago)
Nicole being dead in Dead Space was never a plot twist. It is pretty well known by now that the first letters of the chapter names themselves actually say it. Chapter 1: New Arrivals Chapter 2: Intensive Care Chapter 3: Course Correction Chapter 4: Obliteration Imminent Chapter 5: Lethal Devotion Chapter 6: Environmental Hazard Chapter 7: Into the Void Chapter 8: Search and Rescue Chapter 9: Dead on Arrival Chapter 10: End of Days Chapter 11: Alternate Solutions Chapter 12: Dead Space "NICOLEISDEAD" - Nicole is Dead

a man chooses, a slave obeys
Jacob Saffron (25 days ago)
Uhhhh, someone needs to explain to me why Dead Space is on this list. You meet 1 survivor on the entire ship out of a crew of thousands, 1. So it would be faaaaaaaar more surprising if Nicole was actually alive. Plus the fact that you hear here whispering to you for about half the game kinda gives away that she isn't real.
Meelis13 (25 days ago)
um, obviously i tought way too much of gamers if fallout 4 "big twist" was suprise. I mean you could LITERALLY see this exact plot used doznes of, well, anything really
Matt Walk (26 days ago)
Its not a video game but RWBY Volume 3
Quarantined Cosmonaut (27 days ago)
"Still dead though, lol" 🤣
civilwildman (27 days ago)
For me, it was... 1) Chapter 4 in Baldur's Gate 2: Shadows of Amn. 2) The plot of Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 3) The truth about Cloud in FF7. 4) The true purpose of the Grey Wardens is explained in Dragon Age: Origins. 5) The final chapter of The Witcher.
Caleb Winfield (27 days ago)
Bioshock Infinite. Enough said.
Sam Sanchaz (28 days ago)
The Moon in Portal 2. Less of a twist and more of a wait holy shit moment

What about metro?

I would subscribe but ever video is always strecthed out to make more money. I get it I do but come on put more detail into. Instead every single video doesn't start till a minute in then they end early. So a ten minute video is really like 5-6 of information. Still a viewer but I'd gladly be a fan/sub also......or a 100 likes will make me sub lol help me out world lol. PS have a great day

The first dishonored twist got me good
player (1 month ago)
Whoo wait, hang on here. You forgot 2 twists that both would make someone go WAIT, WHAAAAAAT?. #1. Bioshock 2: Minervas Den. I thougth you were playing as a random Alpha series Big Daddy. Come to find out, it was doctor wats he's face.(not suchong) i, personally, thought i killed him in Bioshock 2. But he was an alpha in Minervas den. That was a shocker too me. #2. Bioshock Infinite, not as good as a plot twist as Bioshock one, but still it gets the job done. Booker was actually Comstock via messed up inter dimensional travel shenanigans. Still a decent plot twist. Sad ending thou.

Knights of the Old Republic.... no other reveal in any game ever made me take pause to recover my breath. I mean seriously, Im a Jedi, the good guy, I made every light side decision, I was a BEACON of LIGHT and HOPE (for those of you who remember the game will easily recall). To the point that even though I played the game well over 20 times, I never once played as a dark side Jedi. The only reason I saw the dark side ending is because I watched my roommate play through it dark side. Then to find out that I was the original bad guy!! OMG!!! I both laughed and cried at the same time. Fuck FF7, It will always be my opinion KOTOR was the best RPG of its time. If someone reproduced it in current graphics I would buy it in a heartbeat.

The firtst thing I thougth when Shaun was kidnapped in FO4 was: "He's gonna be an old man and leader of one major faction". If I can foresee that it has no business being on this kind of list.

Arkham city had a really cool twist about the joker
McDragon (1 month ago)
The reveal of your identity at the end of the first Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic game. One of the greatest moments in gaming that no one saw coming.

What about Jak and Daxter? Jak is really the kid you've been protecting? Jak is Mar? The precursors are actually ottsels? Damas is Jak's father? Those were twisty right?

hahaha did you say 'post apocalyptic Bolton'????? i grew up not too far from there, might aswell be post apocalyptic the place is grim haha
darkarrow7101 (1 month ago)
I feel that the twist in Bioshock Infinite was better than in Bioshock. Also, Warframe’s Second Dream twist was really good.

What about persona 5? There was a big plot twist in there.
Lorens Proost (2 months ago)
The plot twist in A Way Out is huge imo
elstormo (2 months ago)
For me, the best twist any video game has ever done is Master Li's betrayal in Jade Empire. Nobody could have seen that coming, and it was so perfectly foreshadowed that you realize when it happened that you actually could have known if only you'd paid attention to the right things.

Uhhhhh Knights of the Old Republic? Where you find out you were the baddest bad guy of them all and had been brainwashed?

I realize you mispronounce stuff wrong, but Fallout 4 takes place is post apocalyptic BOSTON. Also, the reveal about Shaun happened pretty early in the game....
Pascal Kuchinke (2 months ago)
Everybody saw Shaun Coming.
Krimog (2 months ago)
Black Ops : There never was any doubt. Most ridiculous plot "twist" ever. Pockemon : More likely than the alternative. Fallout 4 : Didn't know he would be that old, but is was to obvious he wouldn't be a bady anymore. And where the hell is KOTOR ?
BalthazarSD (2 months ago)
Mafia II was amazing.
King Trucker 9000 (2 months ago)
Try playing yakuza 0. That ending plot twist was grade A bull....awesome game tho
Augusto Oliveira (2 months ago)
NieR automata? No?
Bilbo Saggins (2 months ago)
Why isn't a way out here?! It was such a good plot twist that you didn't expect and you're even there with the traitor. If any of you don't know what a way out is, it's a co-op only split screen story game where you escape out of a prison with your friend (who is in real life) but turns out one of betrays the other.
