* I always assumed that the scene with Vaas looking back up at you was symbolic, to say that he is still alive within you, and that you hav essentially become the new Vaas.

Added DiffLines:

* This would also explain why Vaas doesn't appear to die-much like the doubts many Changelings deal with, Vaas is another Gentry and 'killing' him may just be another illusion perpetuated by the island. Also makes the Good Ending way more awesome: He's not just leaving the island, he's leaving Arcadia itself.

* Indeed, it isn't so much as Jason just plain hallucinating Vaas' death, as it is Vaas DELIBERATELY causing Jason to hallucinate his death. But why would the LaughablyEvil, AxCrazy Pirate Leader decide to FakeTheDead when Jason was looking for a final showdown? Because Vaas finally took his own advice: Insanity IS doing the same thing over and over again, and expecting different results. In a case of FridgeBrilliance, this applied to both Jason and Vaas equally, as they kept trying to kill each other ComicStrip/SpyVsSpy style, kept failing to put the other in the ground, and kept expecting that they'd get a different result if they kept trying to kill each other. Vaas finally realized the only way to break the cycle was if one of them died, [[HypocriticalHumor but since he isn't crazy enough to willingly die]], he plugged Jason with some hard drugs, [[ScrewThisImOuttaHere and got the hell off the Rook Islands]]. The reason [[CainAndAbel Citra]] and [[BiggerBad Volker]] say he's dead is because they only have Jason's drugged-up story to go on, and since Vaas [[NeverFoundTheBody vanished without a trace]], they assumed [[DeathSeeker he finally got killed by the one man as crazy as he was]].

** I don't quite buy this. Vaas is canny, certainly, but I really don't see him as smart enough to fake his own death convincingly enough to fool everyone who'd want to be sure. One or two, maybe, but managing to fool Citra, Dennis, Hoyt and Willis along with all the Rakyat, privateers and his own men who'd want to be damn sure? I don't think so.

to:

* Doesn't quite work for three reasons; 1. He has access to intel that would require off-island contacts to get, 2. He has a subordinate, Sam, working for him and 3. He crops up in the next game in the series as a CIA agent (though not having played 4 I can't say for sure how definitive that is). Also unlike Heck he's not obviously nuts. A little...odd certainly but by Rook Island standards he's positively normal.

** However, since you're here and I don't know how to move it; he doesn't, that was Jason hallucinating.

Added DiffLines:

It also explains why Vaas keeps failing at killing Brody despite some otherwise effective methods, like the gunshot to the chest that was absorbed by the lighter that Vaas had planted in his pocket earlier.

Jason's suffering a Durance that turns him into a Farwalker Ogre, and he's caught between two feuding Gentry in the form of Citra and Hoyt. Everyone else involved in the plot besides his friends and family being absolutely nuts just cinches it - Far Cry 3 is pretty much "Changeling: the Lost - the Videogame"!

[[WMG: Vaas has Borderline Personality Disorder.]]

He has a lot of the traits common with BPD: sudden intense mood swings, violent 'tendencies', and drug addiction, to name a few.

to:

* He could potentially possess some first civ DNA, at least maybe a little bit and not as strong as the assassins Desmond descends from. Since once he has targeted an enemy he will always know their location, and by taking his makeshift drugs he can amplify what little first civ DNA he got so that he see enemies and animals without detecting them first.

** according to the lost expeditions DLC, the game is set in the Assassin's Creed universe, and also shares it's pop culture with ours (Jason quotes Star Wars, Kill Bill or Bioshock, for example). Since Jason is your typical 20-yr old immature kid in the beginning, he would have known about MW2 if it existed as a Game, and at least said some random shit to make fun of Huntley.
