  1. Here’s one:

    Handsome Jack (Borderlands 2) is trying to kill you. Like, that’s all he’s trying to do. And he owns the company that has the machines that allow you to respawn. Why doesn’t he just turn off the New-U stations? Like he owns all of them, except for a couple on Elpis that are owned by Dahl, he could easily turn them off. But no. He doesn’t. And the Vault Hunters kill him.

    • +Astronomy they’re in the game. Doesn’t matter what 2K says, just saying something isn’t canon doesn’t make it immune from plot holes. Like it was a story plot line in the original Borderlands.

  2. I seem to recall Ethan being a drunk and taking antidepressants. Mixing the two would be bad (obvs) so he would have hallucinations and/or blackouts

  3. But wouldn’t false memories give you experience? Like when I learn to ride a bike, I continue to remember how because of memory. Gnomesayin?

  4. Modern Warfare 2’s narrative bits explain that the ultranationalist political extremists that Makarov is part of have already taken control of the Russian government and have popular support, even if he himself is considered an extremist. Thus, someone on the inside covered up that Russian terrorists were involved in the attack. In fact, another member of Makarov’s team dies during the No Russian mission, and Makarov orders the team to leave him behind, which would be pretty damaging proof that the plot wasn’t necessarily created by Americans.
    Maybe if people would actually listen to the cutscenes instead of skipping all of them all the time?

  5. Umm you forgot to mention that there is zombrex in dead rising lmao ? that explains that plot whole there you go
