    What if a ring could grant you your deepest desires... at the cost of your own freewill? I think that is what may be happening to our character in the new mobile game Octopath Traveler: Champions of the Continent. While the story is still ongoing, I think we can figure out what awaits us on our hero's journey and how this whole thing may just be a trick... Let's go!

    I'd like Matpat to do a theory or two on some older games. Imagine him dealing with the brain twisting madness that is the Marathon series.

    I actually think the "Ring is the true bbeg" is the intended lore. It mirrors the original Octopath Traveler in your actions throughout the game actually makes it possible to summon and fight the secret super-boss.

    This was a very interesting Theory as a fan of the series my only question is does this game have a secret final boss that is ridiculously overpowered and requires precise strategies unlike the rest of the game

      I can't think of any secret bosses on CTOC but their is lvl 85 characters within the game that when you beat them they give you the best weapons in the game which are the battle tested set. They're very difficult specially when you have lvl 85 characters.

    I need to suggest a game that has some of the darkest lore I know and I really feel like a theory can be made out of it. The game is called is called Into The Radius. It's a VR game and it's got some really cool features and hidden lore that is found while exploring throughout the game.

      @EveryThingGirl238 If you use Runemaster Tressa you can have her buff the whole party with Evasion, making the only thing able to hit you be magic, which you can then mitigate with Ophelia or Cyrus.

      I love how I have to strategies my characters.
      I have Cyrus as my Arch Mage/Sorcerer
      Ophelia Healer/Starseer
      Primrose Dancer/Healer
      Therion Theif/Runemaster
      By having two healers, which I either make Primrose or Tressa, I can tank more hits. And Cyrus is my main guy besides Ophilia that has the most SP to do attacks. Ophelia is my support, and Cyrus can pack quiet the punch as Arch Mage with his special power that targets one guy.
      Therion is both support and attack, it works great.

    If a divine ring comes your way, question everything. I wonder if there's a way to avoid the ring or stop its control. I mean there has to be as long as one understands how something functions

  • Zephyr
    Zephyr Před 3 měsíci +593

    Definitely a super interesting theory. The only key point that I think was missed is the ritual to purify the rings; meaning the reason that the rings made Tytos, Herminia, and Auguste go berserk is because the rings are corrupted, or rather become corrupted. The ritual to purify them is successful…but then we see what happened to Pathos and Apathia (the Ring Maidens)…
    The more interesting thing to perhaps look into is the Tower of Remembrance. If you defeat all of the elite enemies in a particular region, you’ll unlock a boss within that particular “bonfire” inside the tower. If you defeat that extra boss, you unlock some lore about HOW Auguste, Herminia, and Tytos came across the rings…
    …they were given to them by a shadowed figure. Sound a bit familiar? A “shadowed figure” also gave our character their ring.
    Maybe they’re the same person. Just my thoughts.

      @theshinypeliper! Hmmm... Seems like something a god would say, the Hindu and Eldritch gods atleast. Also I wouldn't necessarily call such a statement evil because of how life is pretty much worthless for an godly being since it can create it as it wishes to, it's like telling a human that washing our hands makes us evil because it causes a genocide of germs or something.

    You need to do a theory on "the witness" it's an interesting puzzle game with skatered lore told throught the environmental storytelling, exploring the open world in this almost post apocoliptic setting, solving secret puzzle that reveal new areas and hidden videos and voice recordings. It's aminous, it's beautiful and is begging for a game theory

      This is a great advertisement video on MatPat's part, but this comment is 100% correct.
      And, plus, unless there's some weird technicalities involving how one is given the ring in the first place, highly doubt there's a sort of conspiracy, considering what happens at the end of said interlude...

  • Jess Miller
    Jess Miller Před 2 měsíci +1

    My heart's desire is that one day you guys'll actually read the lore of the games you theorize over. I mean, seriously? Bargello (the supposed other mafia in Valore) is NOT another mafia. He and his group are citizens of the town who want their homes back. In chapter 2, it's said that several of their friends and family members lost their homes and went into abject poverty because of Herminia.
    They fully intend to change it for the better BECAUSE it's their home.
    Tytos gets remembered as a hero because another character, Velnorte, gets BLAMED for everything that Tytos orchestrated. While Velnorte was involved in it, he only did it under duress. It's not propaganda - it's blatant lying.
    And the reason the villains transform and we don't is because they CHOSE to do so. They have to say an incantation to transform - it happens in every boss fight.
    This is just the Ace Attorney video all over again. You're leaving out huge amounts of context for the sake of your argument. Huge disappointment.

    Octopath had a really interesting story, really. The final boss was stupidly difficult, but it was nice that it required you to actually use every aspect of the super in-depth combat

    Fascinating. Very cool to see a fantasy story like this that uses the convention of 'magic wish-bringing device that's corrupted'; it's in some of my favourite games.

    Each of the other Ring Holders seem to have experienced some traumatic things through their lives - do you ever get to see _your own_ Character's Backstory?
    Reason I ask is that the Shadowed Figure handing out the Rings is specifically _choosing_ bearers that would be easily corrupted by the Divine Being in the Ring. It doesn't seem likely that the guy handing these things out just happened to choose a _normal person_ to give *the Ring most likely to ruin their plans!*
    The being inhabiting the Ring you get, *Aelfric the Flamebringer,* I suspect is playing along with the Shrouded One's plan, but then uses the Victim to defeat and gather the other Rings, to then confront the Shrouded One and expose them as *the 13th Divinity, Galdera!*
    With the powers of _the 12 Divine Beings combined,_ you Seal Galdera away forever...
    ...unless you've played the Original *Octopath Traveller,* where you know Galdera gets released again!

    Since we're on JRPGs now, I think Xenoblade 3 really deserves a Game Theory as well. It has some pretty deep themes.

    Hello! Love your videos. Now I know alot about games i probably will never play until now! Can you look into the game Doors though? It seems like in the end when you beat the game, something happened to one of the things that try to kill you. Like a backstory is behind they're presence, and why the hotel that your trying to escape is abandoned and all that stuff. (game: roblox) please breifly look into this topic because its a horror game that I dont know the half of

    It’s Moon Knight. The story is basically a Marc, Steven and Jake from the Comics unknowingly being the Knight. The Ring is simply Khonshu.👍👍

    Meta stuff is really big in the team that makes Octopath. Like I said: look into the Bravely Default series. I 100% believe in the "The ring is controlling your choices" theory just because it is very very on brand.

      @firefliesowlcity12 I forget the specifics, but there was something I read somewhere where snack of the serpent involved it being implied that the composer's world was the snack? I wish I could find the reference, I thought it was super cool. But yeah, the Bravely series seems like something MattPat would really like.

    • firefliesowlcity12

      Yep, one of my favorite moments ever is in the original Bravely Default when the big bad is explaining his plan. Internally, I'm going "Blah blah blah, conquer the world/Celestial Realm, whatever." Then the screen breaks and I see myself, suddenly I realize who his target in the Celestial Realm is and flip out from both the reveal and how high the stakes become.

    heres an idea
    What if the ring the main character gets at the star of the game is supposed to represent greed? it kinda makes sense, given the fact that the goal of the game is to obtain said rings.

    Theory Idea! Barotrauma, it's a neat little game I find it to be very interesting like all the why's in the game not much about the lore is out there and I'm kind of curious.

  • Valacius
    Valacius Před 2 měsíci

    I've just thought about the idea of Game Theory doing a video on Hunt: Showdown. Maybe looking into the Corruption and the Sculptor and seeing if any of the legendary hunters are being used by the Sculptor like the Night Seer and his cult or the Sinners cult, or even something to do with the AHA or any of the boss monsters, the gunplay, some of the consumables like hive bomb or concertina bombs, etc. They could even look into the event Serpent's Moon that's going on right now.
    I'd just really love a video on Hunt: Showdown from one of my favorite channels. I feel like there's possibly something they could find there in that game that would get their theorist minds going.

  • nicolas barraza

    I've been wondering... if all of the ringbearers can transform into a monster with the power of their respective rings... does the main traveller character also has that ability?... as MatPat said, how are we different? The only thing we notice is that all rings except ours glows red instead of blue...

    • Jess Miller
      Jess Miller Před 2 měsíci +4

      Spoilers but they have to activate their ring in order to do so. It's something they have to chose to do. Matpat left that part out. Main character chooses not to do it, hence we ARE different. It's not our abilities, it's our choices. Really feels like he didn't actually read the story imo.

  • Kiro
