* The Bogeyman/Judgement ending can come across as Alex JumpingOffTheSlipperySlope even though Alex's reward of becoming a Pyramid Head isn't what he had in mind. Similar to the sacrificial children, Alex has transformed into a vengeful monster and will presumably terrorize people who have done horrible deeds but it appears VengeanceFeelsEmpty.

Added DiffLines:

** Further, Alex's next line, no matter the choice, is the same ("I don't need anything from you."), but the delivery and meaning behind it is completely different. For one choice, the delivery is quiet, as if to say "No, that's all right; you don't need to do this if you don't want to." For the other choice, the delivery is angry, and an outright rejection.

Added DiffLines:

** Because of the nature of the choice, the player gets the feeling of there being a "good" and "bad" choice, but not a ''right'' choice. Which one is deserved? All of the suffering Alex has endured up to this point comes to a head in this quiet meeting. Either one can produce tears of the appropriate extreme, anger or sadness.
