The Helpful Troll
The common internet troll is a person (I use the term lightly) who willfully feigns ignorance, stupidity, or outrage to provoke a reaction from those he intends to torment. There is much debate over whether a true troll can be differentiated from a silly, ignorant person. This debate has very little to do with this footage from Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons. I only mention the internet-type trolls because the trolls in Brothers are decidedly lovable. Well, except for the green ones, but I'm not sure if they're supposed to be trolls?
I completed the game last night, and was pleased to find that it's following the trend of excellent endings (see The Last of Us). We're so used to the denouements of our stories tying up loose ends, with lips being kissed, villagers celebrating and the like. I like the ambiguous, unusual, unexpected, and thought-provoking endings best, and this game has one.
