    To be fair it is because explaining almost anything this game has to offer would ruin the experience. Back when it was new most fans simply enjoyed the game and were asking people to take a chance on it simply because they didn't want to tarnish the experience. I love Undertale, but it really hinges on not knowing what the player is getting into exactly the first time through.

    I don't think it hinges on that quite that much. Like sure the cool things it does are more cool when you don't know they're coming, but it's not what makes Undertale a great game, IMO.

    I don't want to be too cruel as it's obviously socially isolated young people making stuff like that and they clearly put a lot of heart and soul into its creation, but I'd really love to know how they came to some of these conclusions. How do you get all of that from the Mad Dummy with its, what, three lines of dialogue?

    I've known dick all about undertale since it came out despite seeming popular so I've never looked into it much. But seeing you describe it like this and seeing as it's on sale right now I said smurf it and bought it. Gonna give it a go once I get the chance.

    It's my understanding that someone made the art (which is really good, and I really enjoy their interpretations of the characters!) and someone added all of the tags later.

    I guess I'll need to play it to figure out quite how to take that.

    I own this game but still have yet to play it. I still know pretty much nothing about the game too, surprisingly. I just canít play stuff as comfortably on my computer right now, but I might have to try giving this game a go after the holidays.

    The game is quite good by itself, as I enjoyed many playthroughs despite knowing everything there is to know about the game. I just meant that the first playthrough is greatly enhanced the less you know. Even if you were the supreme RPG junkies like most of us were in the 90s, even then the game does a great job throwing people for a loop when they can spot every reference and nod that Undertale throws out there. Knowing certain things going in wouldn't ruin the game, but it would diminish the experience, I feel.

    I guess I missed the boat on this, but I just got it for PS4 and played through what I believe was the neutral route. I really enjoyed the game, but that hell of a freaky ending clinched it for me! Was both creepy and funny at the same time.
    Not sure if it's worth jumping straight back on for a pacifist or genocide ending. Does a lot change? Or is it just going through the same motions? Also, is it easy to miss anything on either run and accidentally get the neutral ending again? That would irritate me.
