SPOILERS I just did a vigilante playthrough. Would you recommend I do a villain playthrough as well?
Okay, I know I’m not alone on this — but I was disappointed with the vigilante route. What happened to Selina, Avesta and Gordon? Did Gordon get his job back? What’s Selina up to now? What about Avesta? Does she now work at Wayne Enterprises? There is simply not enough closure, especially for a finale.
I’m not even sure why, but John doesn’t seem as interesting as the previous episodes. He keeps mentioning he and Bruce being ‘two threads in the same stitch’, but it was never really elaborated on. I feel like the way he turned into the typical Joker was just abrupt and unreasonable. Sure, if you sold him out to Waller. If you stayed loyal to him, I’m not even sure why he suddenly turns on you. Like why? He lost himself while trying to be like Batman? That one line explanation just doesn’t cut it for me.
Also, something bugs me. In the choices screen, it mentions You can 51.6% of the players took down Vigilante Joker.
I’m honestly not sure what I am supposed to interpret from this line. Was that even a choice?
Lastly, inconsistency. John’s personality through the episode is way too inconsistent. Also, he keeps saying I use violence to solve problems and that he was learning from MY ACTIONS, when I have never used violence unless I’m not given the choice.
So, do you think a villain playthrough is worth it for me? I have been told it is better overall. Hey, maybe the previous episodes set the bar too high. Or was it The Council?
I’d rather have a great story (season 1) than different scenarios that are shabbily done.
