hey just finished the main story yesterday and im disappointed by it, i dont want to play as jack. i didnt even like him before i knew what would eventually happen. is anyone else just a bit pissed off that your forced to play on as some charactered you dont really know, i mean we saw him for about 6 missions, we've jsut played through the whole game as john, got to know him, yyous get what i mean?. this is actually a dealbreaker for me, the second i realised i had to play on as jack i lost all interest in the game, im seriously just been turned off by it

nope, not at all... in fact, i LOVE IT!! it's a great twist and really made the final mission in the game one of the best in the history of video games... i do believe it's a first too... it makes the upcoming 2nd DLC pack very intriguing, especially if it's going to be an episodic thing like they did with liberty city...

Oh, good one. The "you're on the internet so you must have no life" insult isn't moronic or unoriginal at all. You must, without a doubt, be a very important member of society, not at all a waste of the already barely valuable gift of life.

As is the case for everyone who takes issue with people who make them sad on the internet, you are one of two kinds of people:

You are exactly what you claim I am, and that is a lonely, pathetic basement dweller. You life is spent eating eight pounds of junk food per day, masturbating to anything you find online that's even remotely feminine, and wishing you had good looks and social skills. You continue to live with your mother until she dies of a combination of lung cancer and liver failure brought on by the chain-smoking and heavy drinking she used to cope with what a failure you are. Your mother mercifully dead and free of the living embodiment of failure she regretfully thrust from her loins, the bills start to pile up and you, unemployed and unable to pay these bills (of course), lose the house and everything in it. Somehow even more of a failure than you already were, you wander from place to place eating out of dumpsters and sleeping in your own filth until you finally die of AIDS, which you contracted from a diseased whore you scrounged up enough money to pay for, so you could finally lose your virginity while at the same time pretending that your mother was back in your life.

Or:

You are the type who was an athlete in high school, who was genetically doomed to be an idiot but managed to finish school and even get a college scholarship because you were so good at a worthless children's game. You went off to college with a suitcase full of polo shirts and condoms, the polo shirts, because you're a douche, and the condoms to prevent you from impregnating the dim-witted young college girls whom you could never touch without the aid of Rohypnol, a drug you refer to as "roofies" because you can neither spell or pronounce Rohypnol. You scrape by with borderline D's for the next four years, and leave the campus to go out into the real world where your realize you're not intelligent or talented enough to do anything of value with your life. Misery and minimum wage ensues for thirty years, then you blow your brains out, and your corpse, alone and forgotten, is not discovered until the smell of rotting flesh seeps under your door and your bodily fluids finally soak through the floor of your studio apartment and into the room below you. Your body is cremated, the ashes scraped into a garbage bin because there was no one in your life who valued you enough to pay for a casket, funeral, or burial plot.

You're undoubtedly one of the two, otherwise you would have better things to do than complain about the theme of a forum that doesn't care about anything you have to say.

I'm wouldn't say I was disappointed because it made a great ending, however it did take me a little while to get used to Jack's squeaky voice...

and that "go'on get'at'er" he yells at his horse laugh.gif... he's got a much thicker cowboy accent than his father, which is weird... but, i do like the fact that the last of the legendary outlaws was finished off and basically, it feels like jack is the bridge from the cowboy era to the modern era...

i think that's what R* was going for... john was the last of his kind... it was basically the death of the west... i love it...

plus, like viceman said in a different thread, jack looks better in most of the outfits... it was like they were made for him and not john... well, the gang outfits look like they were made for john but, the marshall, army, elegant, reyes rebel, and gentleman's attire all look like they were made for jack... he fits them perfectly...

Not going to use a spoiler tag, since this whole topic is about the ending, don't read the topic if you don't want it spoiled, anyway;



There isn't really any difference between the two aside from the voice, but as I said most of the outfits do seem to suit Jack better, strangely. My only gripe is that although 3 years have passed in the game (making Jack 18) nothing seems to have changed, towns have got no larger, and NPCs still talk about old events, such as the rebellion in Mexico by Reyes. (Although if you read the newspaper in 1914 it says he's actually assumed leadership and has become corrupted himself.)

I say amazing ending. I was actually pretty bummed to see John die. I did pretty much all the stranger missions. Im wondering what would have happened if you want complete then I finished it as jack. How would it work? Would jack be in cut scenes?

the strangers usually talk about how john was a good man for helping them out, even though jack is finishing up their unfinished business... it's pretty cool actually... and the ones that weren't started yet, they just treat you as they would if your were john, with no mention of john when playing as jack...

it was kind of cool to see it play out like that... i wanted to test it like an hour after i beat the game... i saw some unfinished side-quests and wanted to see what would happen...

I fucking loved the ending. Went out with a bang... Brilliant! Jack aint so bad. He looks a bit Mexican but that's ok. At least you can still wear all the outfits and do all the side missions as Jack.

I like the ending. Hated it at first.
I've grown to like Jack, I love how he says "Work, ya damn nag!"
I use that line on my girlfriend!
And "Stop dillydallying and work!"

Those are my fave lines.
Im excited about DLC, because I did about 90% of everything as John, only like two strangers and I've been saving them.

I started Daedelus with John and finished it with Jack. He says, "my God is that you? John Marston?" and then he plummets to his death. I will say that California didn't notice the character change... although that guy is fucked out of his mind anyway.

PS--How many days does it take to start the third part of California? Like a whole month? Shit is annoying...

I swear that guy has to be God.
John says something like "Damn you!" and says many people have or something.
That quest line fractured my brain. I loved it!

I think that guy was the best random encounter. Really some weird element added to the story.
