            Joan of Arc was a hooker who they used as a mascot.
            She never participated in any battle outside of hanging out near archer distance.
            Also every single battle plan she ever brought forth was ignored as it would of caused countless deaths on their side.

            Shit mascot honestly.

      >Fight villain
      >He remains cocky until his last breath
      For once I just want to see a villain slowly driven in a corner begging not to be killed, a an always cocky overconfident villain makes me feel like all my work up until that point was meaningless.

        Killing Dmitri in GTAIV was like that though, he just begs and cries until you shoot him

        I wish we got more games where you didn’t just mercy-kill the villain. I want that gently caresser to be in pain. Let me watch him slowly bleed out while he screams for mercy.

            Jesus gently caress can a game just let me be a gently caressing vengeful dick for once? I gently caressing hate this shit in movies too.

              This is why I tend to make evil decisions in games, allowing me to pick always makes me want to go against the grain and see what the creators came up with

                I really liked being an absolute killing-machine in dishonored. Really made Corvo feel like the he had no remorse for those who wronged him, and seeing the influence it had on Emily in the end was actually pretty neat.

        Hahaha Black Ops 2 did this and we were allies with China. Not too unrealistic, but funny because it makes her out to look like a saint when she has had people killed for telling the truth about her or trying to. REMEMBER SETH RICH. gently caressing bitch deserves the rope.

      You know what the future will be like? We’ll take the basic square and rectangular shapes of our current houses and doors and just double the sides for no reason!
