I want to point out that I'm actually pretty annoyed at the lack of spoiler tags in some of the posts about anything that isn't THE GAME THE THREAD IS ABOUT! Like, what if (as an actual example) I haven't played Star Allies because I'm waiting for a good opportunity to buy myself a Switch and the game?
Well, have you ever considered that it's just something you have to live with
Like, what do you feel when a game's story is spoiled to you? Anger? Rage? And why do you feel that? Is it because the value you place on this media that you consume somehow declines because of that? That it somehow doesn't become something worth buying?
Think about that for a moment. By saying this then, you establish that you are likely viewing this as a one-time playthrough at best. You are thus greatly limiting the potential of the game to appeal to you because you value one thing and one thing only and hedge everything on it. Once the story is done and you are completely aware of what that story is doing, the value you possessed by going at it blind is lost completely. And what then? That says a lot of things right there, none of which I'll bring up here.
I played The Messenger recently. Some streams I happened on showed the (real) big twist of the game. Did that ultimately affect my experience with the game? Not really. I still had fun. I still would probably play it again at some point in the future. At some point I will play Bioshock Infinite this year, even though my brain right now is screaming the big plot twist which I stumbled upon accidentally one day a few years ago. I doubt it'll affect my view of the game in the broader sense.
I think it's worth self-examining why you value knowing as little as possible about a game you've already established biases and expectations unconsciously about (since you willingly acquired the game), and why you put so much contempt at even the slightest reveal in the most indirect of fashions. There's a lot to be dissected there.
I mean they have very pointedly not been responding to good points against their original post, I'm sure it wasn't missed
For the most part. There's nothing to be said there. Also don't care much to respond to childish insults (not from you specifically Leet since you haven't done any, just thought to bring that up).
