** FridgeHorror: If you take a look at the instances in which Laura can be killed by the mysterious figure, [[spoiler: taking a shower, hiding in the attic, and hiding in the closet]], Laura is simply grabbed and killed without the murderer even looking. [[spoiler: too late to see it was her best friend.]]

* DarknessInducedAudienceApathy: Both games involve a large cast of characters, all of which are nasty egotistical stereotypes. The main goal is to spy on all of them to learn their little secrets, such as who is blackmailing who and who has had an affair and such. And then they all die like mayflies, slaughtered one by one by a serial killer, which you cannot prevent. So why exactly should you care about any of these characters?

* CompleteMonster: the motive for the murder in the first game is simply psychotic insanity.

* FridgeLogic: In the first game, there's several ways for Laura to get murdered by an unseen figure, even very very early in the game. But once you've beaten the game, [[spoiler:it's obvious that nobody had any motive to kill her, ''especially'' not the murderer, and certainly not that early in the night. She was actually the one person present [[spoiler: Besides Celie]] who the murderer ''didn't'' want to kill.]]

** This is potentially a case of GameplayAndStorySegregation, as [[spoiler: The one suspect in the mansion who likes Laura and doesn't want her to die being the murderer and never killing her would actually give the true culprit away too easily.]]

Added DiffLines:

*** Even worse, if you tell Laura to look at the ghost, she'll dismiss it by claiming "It's just a wisp of mist from the bayou", which makes you wonder if ''you'', the player, [[ParanoiaFuel are the one seeing things.]]

* YourMileageMayVary: The first game's story actually seems very brilliantly written given that the way you play, it isn't ''entirely'' stated who the murderer is. Unless you find ''all'' the information, it can look like either [[spoiler: Henri]] or [[spoiler: Rudy]] is the villain. Or, it wasn't written very well ''because'' it's not entirely spelled out.
** Though, that's really just a result of not collecting all the information (so it's deliberately ambiguous to make the player replay it and hunt harder for clues.) If you collect absolutely every bit of evidence, the murderer is explicitly revealed to be [[spoiler:Lillian]].
