redpillme on the occult symbolism in these games

Spoiler alert obviously.

These games are obviously chock full of occult symbols. Numerology is the most obvious, baked into the game. The Gnostic metaphor is obvious, especially in the second game, with the players trapped in Zero's "created world". The second game also has a repeated image of a lion eating the sun, which is a common image in alchemy. And then of course there's that morphogenetic field stuff, although that isn't really "symbolism",they just directly talk about it.

      I can't find it uploaded by itself, but this is the monologue I mentioned. Picrel is the lion eating sun which shows up as a motif.

          The first one is great, genuinely amazing game. The second one is also pretty awesome, even if it has a tendency to drag on.

          The third one is.... interesting. It's a fun time, at least.

    I have waited for this thread for years. These are the most /x/ games I have ever played, they have expanded my occult and spiritual knowledge more than I thought a video game could. All three games are filled with information. Unfortunately, due to my mental state right now I can't remember everything from the games and I also don't want to spoil anything, but I will say that anyone interested in the occult and other interesting /x/ concepts should play this game.

    Oh another thing. The Villains are called "free the soul". According to the creator, the original name was "free the soul of y", with "Y" meaning the left eye of horus.

    First one is top kino. Second one kinda lame, but the ending was worth going thought it.

    I think all symbols were used strictly for cool factor, as is often the case in japanese games.

    But I recommend it to anyone looking for captivating story. Setting up crazy mysteries is one thing, but the series also manages to offer satsfying explanations for them at the end, which is rare.

        Hey, at least it came out. It nearly didn't happen at all, I'd take what we got over nothing.

        There are still some moments of brillance, but yeah, its easly the worst one. Weird presentation as well, in theory its improvement but I think going full 3d was a mistake with that budget, sprites from first one worked best.

    They are made by different people. Some of them were made by IRL Japanese Ultra-Nationalists. Shin Megami Tensei five unironically seems to have the main character, Nahobino, as a an actual Nestorian Christology in philosophical terms albeit born from a Shinto god but arguably becoming something closer to a deist God in the end. The devil in that entry is very clearly just maintaining order by playing his role after the disappearance of God. Goko is Amitabha Buddha, and is kinda of an existentialist, he wants humans to choose their own role in reality. There is some evidence he sides neither with order or chaos but some third indeterminate other.

        They are shot with Jungian psychology. There is always some character who represents a type of pure Jungian psychology. Some entries portray them like a spiritual libertarian albeit not selfish.

      By "these games" I mean specifically the three games in the zero escape series, not Japanese games in general.

        I get you. My bad I thought you meant Shin Megami Tensei. For whatever reason I mistook it. I have only played the first Zero Escape. Irc it was pretty chock full of gnostic imagery.
