Like any other stories, video games have been known to include many twists and turns over the years. Some are quite small and minor, while others change the entire complexion of the game. Likewise, some of these twists are amazing, and some are completely stupid.
Obviously, there are more than ten twists across gaming. These ten aren’t the ten worst, nor the ten best, but ten of the most talked about. Some are quite recent, while some have been around for ages and are still remembered.
Those gathered at the bottom of the list are pretty dumb, either in that they don’t make much sense, serve much purpose or just generally left a bad taste in the mouth. Ones nearer the top had a huge impact on players, and still stand the test of time. Those entires in the middle? They’re basically a mix of the two. Powerful at the time but make less and less sense the more you squint at them.
Obviously some twists, both good and bad, will have missed the cut here, but these are some of the most water cooler twists gaming has ever known.
