|Just wanted to say I got this game & played through around April/May this year. It's an outstanding absorbing experience. Very unusual and totally unique and memorable because of that. I found that there's an underlying monologue or message being portrayed as well. Also a peculiar surprise when you beat it first time too ! |

|I still don't understand why Garcian's eyes are glowing green in the final chapter. Anybody have any idea?|
Also, giving the player the choice to kill or spare Matsuoka was... interesting, but I kind of wonder what the point was, since it only makes a slight difference in the ending and occurs literally within the last 5 minutes of the game. I guess you could say it has some thematic significance - Garcian is finally choosing for himself - but it would've been nice if the game had given us some sort of similar choices earlier on.

|I liked the scene in Shanghai a hundred years later, reinforcing the notion that Harman Smith and Kun Lan are archetypes, destined to fight eternally while maintaining a close relationship. Exactly what they're archetypes of is not so clear to me, which I also like. |

|I wrote up some final thoughts on my blog. Which mostly boil down to my having no idea what's going on here, but being very glad I spent time here nonetheless. |

|After i finished playing Killer7 my first time, i went to gamefaqs.com and read up on this plot analysis guide -> http://www.gamefaqs.com/gamecube/562551-killer7/faqs/38193|
I found the author's interpretations quite illuminating and it reinforces why i believe Killer7 has the finest story i've experienced in a videogame.
Like a great novel or film, i have a feeling everytime i play this game, i'll find something new that reveals itself.

|I just beat it, I chose to kill Matsuoka for whatever reason. How is the ending different if you spare him? I didn't have it in me to play through the last level a second time.|
