Ok I've been crying for 5min now. That was unexpected ...
I mean... that's one of the results you can get
Took me 2 and a half hours. Others took me 3 hours.
Damn, even shorter than Ep4? I found that one way too short already.
episode was 3 hours for me.
It was a good final episode imo.
Some surprises,more gameplay than in episode 4...and the final choice was expected,but it makes sense.
too bad my ending was not very emotional.
in jail for 15 years
Also no licensed tracks?that was a bit underwhelming.
Fuck, brutal yet sobering ending..
15 years in prison.... it's brutal seeing Sean break down at the campfire in the epilogue, that was tough to watch. I feel like the game wants to show how people are victims to a fucked system in this ending. Is it a happy ending if Sean had 15 years of his life ruined for taking care of his brother..? man fuck that. At least Lyla was there at the end.
I think the biggest difference here that makes the endings work is thatSome general thoughts and my ending:
I got Parting Ways. Despite teaching Daniel to follow the rules and be a good kid, I felt like we were so close to lose it all now so we made a run for it. I regretted it almost immediately, especially when Daniel talked about not wanting to hurt anyone(thankfully, it looks like he doesn't in this version) and bailed at the last moment. Daniel ends up with his grandparents(albeit under house arrest), but he seems happy throughout it. And Sean(and Finn!!!) get to live free in Puerto Lobos.
Despite that, I replayed it to see the Redemption ending(they both surrender). Wow... What a depressing end to the story. Daniel has a great life, and Sean goes to prison and looks broken. I was in tears the whole time -- Layla coming was nice, but re-tracing their journey in the woods, seeing Sean lose it, and them parting ways was heart-breaking. I'm a Bay>BAE person, and this ending was too bleak for me.
David was a nice touch, and it's great that they redeemed him. I actually found what he said really insightful, and he was right! Sean and Daniel shouldn't have ran. Their lives would be MUCH better if they hadn't.
Anyways... I loved LiS2. Daniel was frustrating at times, but I adore Sean and their journey. It wasn't perfect, but it resonated emotionally with me more than LiS1(which I loved and plan to re-play soon).
Absolutely.I think the biggest difference here that makes the endings work is thatYou get to make your own and Daniel gets to make his own decision. If you both agree you end up together eventually. In LiS1 only Max makes the decision regardless of what Chloe might have wanted. It makes the endings more complex and reflects your Daniels development. I got the same ending as you and I couldn't be more pleased that I taught Daniel right and he decided in the end what he felt was best.
It's great, and the endings are more nuanced than LiS1's and reflect your actions across all 5 episodes. 10/10. My GOTY.
Yep, couldn't say it better ! Thanks to all who played through LIS2, it's been a long road (ah!)
Thank you for a great season. Enjoyed it just as much if not more than S1. Sean is one of my favorite protagonists in any game. Sad to see it end and hope we get another lis game.
