Hi, welcome to a new topic that is neither controversial, nor involves Grand Theft Auto V, or any other wild WTF moments involving a Pisswasser bottle.
As you all know, during the mission in The Lost & Damned where you are tasked in dealing with Brian once and for all, you're left with many options as to how to engage this mission.
If you choose to storm the derelict building, you'll end up facing Brian and left with an option to spare him. If you spare him, he'll appear just a minute after the mission completion as a random stranger encounter.
I've realized that in all my playthroughs of this game, whenever I chose to spare Brian, I always tackle his random encounter mission immediately afterwards. Mostly because it seemed right to just finish the ordeal with Brian as soon as possible, also because Johnny's line of "You were gone for, like, Five Minutes, man!" rang so true from a gameplay perspective.
So I wonder, what if Brian was spared, but the player ignores his random encounter, and the player continues with the story missions until the end. And after the end credits, only then does Johnny goes to see Brian.
What, if anything, will happen?
Will Brian still be around to engage the player or will he have vanished from the game completely?
If he is still there, will his dialogue change and remark on the events of the game's final mission?
Or the developers couldn't have thought of everything, and nothing changes at all?
