What’s up my ningens? It’s that time of the week again when I come back from the dead to entertain you all for a few hours. Yes, it is Open Forum time and as ever, I hope you’re all having a great week.
And what a week it is! After all is the aftermath of the hype nuke drop that was Infinity War and the new God of War (plenty of war around), and everyone is talking about them. So let’s not do the same and be rebels together.
Instead, I dedicated the week to clear some movie backlogs! I started with Memento (and in hindsight that might’ve been a mistake, cause I don’t think anything is topping that)! Yeah, that one from 2000. Only 18 years late for that party but what could I do, I was five at the time and cared for nothing that wasn’t a pile of not Legos and remote controlled cars. Anyway, the movie was a ride! When I think that I almost got that spoiled for me, oof. If you’re in that same boat as I was, fix that, this is a great movie.
And it got me thinking about today’s question! You see, some of my favorite stories of all time are not told in a straightforward manner: The Taroverse (Nier/Drakengard for the younglings on the audience) is famous for telling the plot differently with each playthrough. To The Moon makes you travel from the most recent to the oldest moments in the story, the Legacy Of Kain series while arguably more to the point as these two is famous for having layers upon layers of twists (and time travel. Cause that always shakes thing up), and last but not least, Lovecraft was most famous for having the most unreliable of narrators in his stories. And so, the main plate of the day is:
What are your favorite weird/unusual/crazy ways to tell a story?
Other plots may include:
- Favorite videogame weapon?
- What’s your favorite fighting style?
- What’s your silliest tabletop RPG story?
