Video game stories have come a long way, but there is still much to be done if they are to match that of films. Of course, a movie and a video game are two completely different beasts. For example, it is much easier to pace a movie compared to a game especially if they are open-world and full of side quests. Sitting down to watch a 100+ hour movie doesn’t sound very fun at all. What video games and movies do have in common are plot twists. Just when you think you have the plot all figured out, something happens that changes everything you know and love about the characters or the world itself. Be warned, because this video contains spoilers.

One of the biggest video game tropes is when the final boss is your character from the future. We see this in Bioshock Infinite and Infamous. It’s enough already! Who at Nintendo thought it was a plot twist that Samus actually turned out to be a woman? It really isn’t. When talking about confusing plots full of twists, it’s almost impossible not to mention Heavy Rain and the mysterious origami killer. Main character replacements out of nowhere seem to be popular as well and it has happened in games such as Metal Gear Solid 2 and Red Dead Redemption. Don’t even get us started on the Mass Effect 3 ending. When talking about incredibly confusing franchises, Kingdom Hearts and Resident Evil certainly come to mind. Without further ado, here are 10 of the most absurd plot twists in gaming.
