Quotes: Back for the Dead
This game employs a trite little plot twist that the Japanese seem to love, but I fucking hate. I'm speaking of course of the old "Good Guy Who You Thought Was Dead But It Turns Out He Was Still Alive But Then He Dies Five Minutes Later" angle. I find it to be unnecessary and irritating. If Ken Hayabusa is supposed to be dead, keep him dead. Don't drag him back into the storyline in the final chapter and then kill him off again. It's fucking stupid. Enix pulled the same shit in Dragon Warrior III. You're in the last dungeon and you witness your father Ortega, who you believed to be long dead, in the middle of a losing battle. Rather than going to his aid, you watch him perish and THEN attack the monster he was fighting. And it's like, why? What's the point of teasing a character's return, only to kill them off? It's not clever or shocking; it's gay
- Syd Lexia, on Ninja Gaiden
