10 Times Video Games Made You Betray Your Friends

9. Friday The 13th: The Game

A Way Out
Gun Media

In theory, Friday the 13th should always have all the players work together and try to help one another out; half because it's the right thing to do, and half because it leaves more potential targets for Jason to go after that aren't you.

But that doesn't mean you can always have everyone's back, even if you're playing with pals. Sometimes this is because a friend has somehow ended up in Jason's crosshairs, and you simply can't find any way to help them - or need to get to another task to make sure everyone else can get to safety.

However, it's also just as possible that you simply can't be bothered to help them, or are planning to use one of the escape routes that doesn't have room for a lot of people, like the two-seater boat. All of these reasons are pragmatic, but all of them also require you to ditch your buddies to try and maximise your potential of winning the game, which doesn't always leave you looking like a good guy.

On the plus, you can always try and kill Jason, but it will require group co-operation and strategy - so it's a risky manoeuvre, even if it leaves you feeling less guilty.
