Awesome: Shin Megami Tensei II

  • Why has the original series not gotten enough credit? Okay, let's explain it. You...kill...God. And Satan. And pretty much everybody in your way. This is one of the original Omnicidal Neutral games.
    • Considering that YHVH is depicted in this game as evil, his destruction definitely warrants a spot here. From the Aeon Genesis translation:
      Satan: "O Lord, my judgment is not yet complete. There is one more not amongst the chosen that must be that has committed the grave sin of genocide...yes, Lord, the one I must now the one, highest god, my creator... You, YHVH!"
    • If you think about the plot of SMT II in a symbolic way parallel to The Bible, the Law ending is this. YHVH represents the laws of the Old Testament, and by defeating him, you usher in a new age of law, as in the New Testament, bringing salvation to the humans of Eden. In other words, Aleph is basically Jesus with a personal troop of legendary demons at his side.
  • Earlier, you go to confront the Elders of the Center. You end up fighting Uriel and Raphael at the same time, then Michael, and then finally YHVH Himself. Granted, that YHVH was a fake, but it's stated that He still had a ton of power, anyway.
