10 MORE Secret Game Over Screens That Were Absolute Genius

9. Nier Automata - Eating A Fish

Nier Automata
Square Enix

Nier Automata is a brilliant title, offering up some of the best boss battles on consoles as well as a winding narrative about the value of human and android life. However, that’s not to say it doesn’t veer into the goofy side every once in a while.

Case and point: One of the many (many) endings the game has which all revolves around eating fish.

Now I’m no fancy scientist type but the one thing I do know is that, thanks to the games description of this salty fish is that Mackerels are poisonous to Androids because they gum up their guts. Therefore, it’s probably in your best interest not to ingest one. We all know that when games tell us NOT to do something, that's the next thing on the list.

And if you so choose to eat that lovely fish you’ll end up dying triggering a secret ending, but at least knowing how tasty it was before you pass on to silicon heaven.
