From what i gather, the story is suppose
to make you mad, so that you will want to get revenge on her, with the twist that you also have to play as her and see life through her eyes.
Its "meh". Idk if i would attempt any artist risk in a AAA game tbh, they should have kept it bland and just given the audience what they expected, gathered their 60 bucks or whatever and started on the next game in the franchise where nothing was risked and the story was as predictable as the internets outrage.
Look at CoD, you pay your 60 for a basic game, that you know exactly what to expect, watch a mtn dew ad and wait for the next one, no muss, no fuss, no controversy.
Im not a fan of the game, so this is just a take from a 3rd party perspective, but it seems as though most peoples issue is the lack of fan service and having to experience something they didnt expect. Maybe if the story wasnt leaked, and it was more of a dramatic surprise, it would have been recived better, but the months of spoilers, plus everyone being bored at home, made for a perfect storm of controversy.
I see it as akin to people being mad that dark souls is "too hard" and they "deserve to win" because they bought the game. Basically, they didnt get exactly what they've grown accustomed to, and it pisses them off.
Again, im not invested in this at all, but i see that same thing happen with things i am
a fan of too.
