I know I'm like 100 years late to this party but I just finished Danganronpa V3 after playing the first two years ago (and then replaying them prior to this) and I had to immediatelg rush to my local gaming forum to announce how much I hate it.

@johncalmc Oh boy, thatโ€™s gonna go down well ๐Ÿ˜‚

Socks before or after trousers, but never socks before pants, that's the rule. Makes a man look scary, like a chicken.

Black Lives Matter. Enough is enough.

@nessisonett Is it generally liked? I'm pretty good at media blackout on stuff I care about so even though it came out ages ago I knew literally nothing about it. Just about to embark on my post-game Google. It's still fresh - credits are still on as I type - but my initial feeling is pretty negative overall.

@johncalmc People seem to rate the third gameโ€™s ending as one of the best in all of gaming. Iโ€™ve only played the first one though.

@nessisonett Wow. I thought the ending was a total mess. I liked the cast quite a bit but I found most of the mysteries and trials pretty boring and the overall story didn't land for me.

I was quite surprised actually because I had two theories from quite early on about how it would play out and one of them was actually pretty close, whereas I've never been able to predict where the previous games were going.

Oh well. I've still got the first two ๐Ÿ˜‚

@johncalmc It's definitely something of a Marmite game. I loved the ending and found it quite thought provoking. I didn't like the cast quite as much as the other games though.

@nessisonett People either seem to love or hate the ending of V3. It's VERY, VERY polarizing. I can see both points of view, although I very much lean toward loving the ending. Danganronpa 2 definitely has the best "classic" Danganronpa ending, if such a thing exists, and is much more immediately satisfying on a narrative level, but V3's themes and deconstructive elements will stick with me a lot longer.

BTW, even if the ending left you feeling a bit down, @johncalmc , don't neglect the amazing post-game content. It's effectively two different games (a digital board game and a JRPG) tied together by a card-dispenser mini-game. You kinda have to play all three 'modes' in unison to unlock everything. But the board game segment ends up being an amazing celebration of the entire franchise. Even characters from the Danganronpa 3 anime show up!

@Ralizah I've already deleted the game ๐Ÿ˜‚ I didn't like the post-game stuff in the previous games so I just didn't bother. I might do at some point but unlike the previous games which I've played multiple times because I love their narratives, I can't imagine ever playing 3 again.

Even beyond the ending, I just didn't enjoy most of it. I liked the start and the first case, but after that I was mostly waiting for it to get going which for me it never did.

The previous two I thought had some lulls before building to pretty spectacular finishes, and I thought the same would apply here which is mostly what was keeping me interested.

I think they thought the final revelations were a lot cleverer than they actually were, which perhaps explains why the last trial goes on for what feels like twelve hours, but once it became clear that there weren't going to be any more twists or turns and that really was it I just couldn't wait for it to end.

I never dabbled with the post game content. I always read the posts and such by people who loved it and why, based on their words I don't really expect to love it.

Also, I always thought the endings were satisfying on their own.

Maybe I'm wrong and this content does add a lot, but I'm just afraid it's why too much grind versus fun.

Also, I didn't hate the ending, but I don't regard it as one of the best endings in video games or something. It's ok.

(Best ending in a video game sounds like a very cool topic to discuss on here by the way)

@Kidfried I feel like we need a respectful argument thread where we make our cases for discussions like best ending or best bosses and such. Until someone makes the incredibly unpopular and divisive opinion that Days Gone is a good game of course ๐Ÿ˜‰

So as many of you may already be aware, this series is being ported to the Switch in the form of a collection and, in the process, the post-game modes in V3 are being fleshed out and made into a separate game called Danganronpa S: Ultimate Summer Camp. It also includes brand new interactions with original characters from Ultra Despair Girls.

Which makes me wonder: are they removing the post-game stuff from V3 on Switch, since it's being made into a separate game? Because I think that would probably shift me back to liking DR2 more than V3 overall.

Dangarompa is not for everyone. I loved all three. The ending of V3 shocked me, but then again dangarompa 1 and 2 endings caught me by surprise also. So I have no clue how they could do a Dangaronpa 4 and keep up the tradition of weird endings.
