 This was probably the least fun chapter to play through and record, so far. The premise has an incredible dramatic potential, but in his infinite wisdom David Cage saw fit to equip this chapter with a long string of inflexible, linear, but-thou-must QTEs. The sequences are impossible to fail in any meaningful sense (you can't even do them out of order), forcibly reminding you that yes, this is a game, none of this is real, and none of your actions matter.
