So I was talking to my brother about Nier: Automata and we started talking about the beginning of Route B when it plays back the options screen you set up during the first play-through. We both liked it, but the first time my brother set the options, he actually got up in the middle and grabbed lunch while leaving the game on, so the playback at the beginning of Route B was idle for like an hour. While he still thought it was cool (and really funny), his own actions ruined the moment.
So my question is this: What was a great moment in a game that was made worse by a mistake or decision you made? Maybe you were wearing a silly outfit in an important story moment. Maybe you totally whiffed it during a powerful sequence. Some more examples from my own experiences:
(mild spoilers below, larger ones blurred out)
Dark Souls 2: Beating the game wearing the Jester’s outfit made the final cutscene oddly dissonant.
Mario Odyssey: My brother died in the middle of the New Donk City Festival. Oh, and finding the mushroom kingdom paintingl[image|690x388]
Oh and I looked like this during an important scene:
Prey: I beat the December quest before beating the game and ruined the ending.
Life is Strange: Accidentally picked the choice I didn’t want at the end of the game… and twice again after reloading.
