What about that part in Jade Empire when you kill the evil emperor, save your old martial arts master that was like your father and then he thanks you... and murder you instantly.

What about persona 5? There was a big plot twist in there.

The plot twist in A Way Out is huge imo

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 (24 days ago)
Everybody saw Shaun Coming.

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 (24 days ago)
Mafia II was amazing.

Try playing yakuza 0. That ending plot twist was grade A bull....awesome game tho

NieR automata? No?

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.

Bolton? Hahah you mean boston
BIG DADDY (25 days ago)

The Biggest twist here is that KOTOR isn't number 1

thanks for giving away the six sense asshole i haven't watched that yet.

Silent Hill as a franchise has quite a few. But I'll never forget the way Lisa made me feel in the first game.

I saw the twist in Black Ops coming before it even happened and I'm sure that anyone else that was actually paying attention would've also noticed something wasn't right with Reznov

NICOLE IS DEAD 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
Crusader (27 days ago)
I get the Black Ops 1 twist, that was good, but you're lying if you said you saw Shepherd's betrayal in MW2. That was a much harsher twist. In BO1, the badguy didn't change nor did the end goal, but in MW2, an ally and narrator becomes the badguy.
Adeel Khan (27 days ago)
what about cod mw2 when ghost dies
Pratik Sonawane (27 days ago)
I liked the twist in nier automata

You should have advice that there where spoilers you piece shit scumbag human being
Vic Flynn (27 days ago)
The first KOTOR
I'm surprised Halo: CE's twist isn't here. Learning about The Flood and Halo's true purpose was a good twist. Better than some on this list
Matthew O'Connor (27 days ago)
What about the Atlas plot twist in Bioshock?

Post apocalyptic BOLTON

Really deadspace? That game have you clues the entire way. The chapters even spell out Nichole is dead I knew she was dead by the 4-5 chapter
Tony Kirkpatrick (30 days ago)
Post apocalyptic Bolton?? Hahaha

I love deadspace but the plot twist that nicole was dead was pretty easy to figure out

When I thought about it the Reznov twist in BLOPS was well thought out. We saw Reznov normally but I noticed that no one ever talked to him or acknowledged anything he said. Looking back there was also a thing where Reznov only ever physically interacted with objects or the environment at the same time as Mason. He also had Mason do most of his tasks for him. Not to mention he also seemed to appear at the most convenient times. They were subtle but there were signs that Mason was Reznov the whole time throughout the game. Nice one Treyarch.

MGS 3 was garbage. And honestly never cared about the boss

So true about Lance Vance. Was so upset the first time that I ran past him to the helicopter above him, flew a lap around the island and bailed right after tilting the helicopter at an angle, ensuring his death by helicopter blades (had recently finished Syphon Filter 2, so wasn't too surprised when the idea came to me). Yup, Lance...it was just business. 😎

Fallout 4 - Post-Apocalyptic Bolton? :D
Von Steiner (1 month ago)
You're giving fallout 4 a bit too much credit. I've barely met anyone who was actually surprised by that twist. Bethesda is known for their sanbox worlds, not their great writing.
inoue 6 (1 month ago)
I always thought the plot twist at the end of Jade Empire was awesome. Spoiler alert! Your whole quest of finding kidnapped Master Li was planned by him and he betrays and kills you, that was something I did not see comming.

How is KOTOR not even on the list?!
Chris Lancour (1 month ago)
What about KOTOR finding out that you are the dark lord of the sith who's the galatic equivalent of Hittler, Mussolini, Stalin, and Zedong put together but with amnesia

Post apocalyptic Bolton tho?

What about Anders in Dragon Age 2? That bastard...

Fallout 4’s twist wasn’t really a surprise tbh. While I love that game a lot I figured Shaun was the old man. Now me dying in Fallout 3 (before DLC) I did not see coming.

That dragon age inquisition twist where Silus was the Wolf certainly surprised me
Kobus Janmaat (1 month ago)
Final Fantasy 7 that one was harsh. But made me like Cloud even more.

i'm not sure anything could beat Bioshock's "would you kindly". It should have been #1 by a large margin,

Joshua explains to Estelle (while sedating her via the couples first kiss) that he's been a mind controlled spy for the enemy ever since she and her dad adopted him at the very start of the game: Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky. (This series just loves its twists... I.E. who's Rean's Dad; the identity of C and on and on)

MGSV!!! C'mon the whole game tricks you into believing that you are playing as Big Boss!! It starts by giving you a character creation which affects nothing until the end of the game where the real BB assumes your identity! Kojima did such a meta thing and no recognistion for it.... -_-

Jade Empire's plot twist was epic. I'm sad it didn't even get a mention.
Jared Scott (1 month ago)
Honestly, I was so unimpressed by Braid that i didnt even care about the twist
Jack Ryan (1 month ago)
Liked the clip, but what about with The Force Unleashed when Starkiller is deceived by Vader from the Empirical onward and then betrays Starkiller on Corellia? Or the reveal of Darth Revan in Knights of the Old Republic (even if you did show it in the opening). Otherwise, I did like the clip.

Did anyone seriously fail to see FO4's plot twist? Seemed pretty telegraphed to me, basically within the first 15 mins of the game.

KOTOR - you are Darth Revan. That was my favourite plot twist of all time.

Dead space even spoils the twist, if you go and read the first letter of each chapter it reads “Nicholeisdead”

The Lich King...was Arthus!

I love Fallout 4, but that wasn't that great of a twist. Honestly, the second it showed that he was a young boy and not a baby it was pretty obvious the kind of reveal they had planned.

Dark Souls 1: Gwyn has long since gone Hollow, and it's up to you to kill him and take his place by linking the first flame. Dark Souls 3: The final boss is literally everyone who have ever linked the first flame... Ergo, it's _YOU..._ You, and every single PC that any Dark Souls player has ever created... Oh, and it's Gwyn, too... Well played, From Soft... well played...

I thought the Revan was you plot twist was going to be mentioned?  What a plot twist.
MrDude88 (1 month ago)
I finish the video already knew Bioshock’s “would you kindly..” was going to be top 3. But I didn’t know Pokémon Red/Blue was going to be on this list. That was a twist of its own. It’s exactly how you said it for the first run of the Indigo Plateau. You spend all your potions and elixirs on fighting Lance’s Dragonites and you celebrate in triumph to finally beat the Elite 4. Then a few pixels later, you’re up against your damn rival with only 1 Pokémon alive.

There's an RPG maker game called The Witch's House and it has a great plot twist right at the very end that you do not at all see coming.

I think the worst thing most video creators do is ask for me to subscribe after the intro(which I hate that every video has an intro now) but before the video. ask me at the end of the video, remind me before I leave, and I will if I liked the video. ask me before I've seen anything but an intro and i'll never sub.
