''The Far Cry Experience'', alternatively known as ''[[HijackedByGanon ''[[VillainOverride The Vaas Montenegro Experience]]'', is a web series {{Prequel}} to ''VideoGame/FarCry3'', starring actor Christopher Mintz-Plasse AsHimself, filming a survival show on the incredibly dangerous Rook Islands as a means to promote the InUniverse version of ''Far Cry 3''.



* EarlyBirdCameo: [[spoiler:In the ending, Vaas gets a call about some fresh meat on their way to the island. As we know from ''Far Cry 3'', this is Jason Brody and his loved ones.]]

to:

* CelebrityParadox: Chris is filming a survival show to promote ''Far Cry 3''. Perhaps the game is much different plot-wise InUniverse?
* DownerEnding: Chris and his friends die, and now Vaas is coming for some poor souls landing on the island..
* EarlyBirdCameo: [[spoiler:In In the ending, Vaas gets a call about some fresh meat on their way to the island. As we know from ''Far Cry 3'', this is Jason Brody and his loved ones.]]



*** Something noteworthy about this contrast is that Chris is an accomplished actor, even if he's not exactly A-list. Jason is just some no-name rich kid from [=LA=], and yet he later becomes TheChosenOne.
** Chris unfortunately dies and fails to save his friends. [[spoiler:Jason ''can'' die if he chooses to join Citra and kill his friends, something Chris wouldn't even dream of doing.]]
* ForegoneConclusion: You can find Chris' head still buried in the sand in ''Far Cry 3'' proper.
* TheHeroDies: Chris, as well as all of his friends, are killed on the island.



* RealityEnsues: One could say that the way Chris "adapts" to the island compared to Jason Brody is a more realistic look at how some random, normal guy from America would fare on an island full of ruthless pirates. Instead of [[InstantExpert becoming a badass in a very short span of time]], he kills one guy when his back is turned, is a horrible shot, and gets captured in almost no time at all.

* RealityEnsues: One could say ** Vaas refers to a man that he tortured and stuffed into a deer carcass as "{{WesternAnimation/Bambi}}", and apologizes to "her", claiming to be the way Chris "adapts" to hunter who killed her mother.

----
!!Tropes applying to this series include:
* AdamWesting: Christopher Mintz-Plasse plays himself, as a huge {{Jerkass}} with [[SmallNameBigEgo an equally huge ego]].
* AffablyEvil: As expected of Vaas. When you're not pissing him off, he's actually a pretty jovial guy, and genuinely tries to bond with Chris when he captures him, even if this could just be him biding his time as he's holding Chris for ransom and plans to sell him into slavery.
* EarlyBirdCameo: [[spoiler:In the ending, Vaas gets a call about some fresh meat on their way to the island. As we know from ''Far Cry 3'', this is Jason Brody and his loved ones.]]
* {{Expy}}: Chris' clothes are very similar to Jason Brody's.
* AFatherToHisMen: Vaas clearly cares for his gang of pirates, and gets pissed when Chris shoots at them.
* {{Foil}}: Chris is one for Jason Brody.
** Chris starts off as a total {{Jerkass}}, while Jason starts off as a NiceGuy.
** Chris and Jason both have absolutely no combat experience and are clearly out of their element on the unforgiving Rook Islands, but while Jason eventually adapts and [[TookALevelInBadass becomes a competent warrior]], Chris very barely becomes able to defend himself, and gets captured rather easily ([[ImperialStormtrooperMarksmanshipAcademy and embarassingly]]).
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Chris may be an asshole, but he does everything he can to save his friends.
* ShoutOut: Vaas, being WickedCultured, makes many references to film.
** Vaas claims to be a huge fan of Chris' work, "even the shitty [films]", and he may or may not be serious. He even calls him "[[{{Film/Superbad}} [=McLovin=]]]".
* RealityEnsues: One could say that the way Chris "adapts" to the island compared to Jason Brody is a more realistic look at how some random, normal guy from America would fare on an island full of ruthless pirates. Instead of [[InstantExpert becoming a badass in a very short span of time]], he kills one guy when his back is turned, is a horrible shot, and gets captured in almost no time at all.
