The last topic purged, which sucks hard since unfortunately I don't have the write-ups stored anywhere; but this may be a good opportunity to ask if you're willing to follow this topic despite contest fever. I'd ask of you to bump this every once in a while if I haven't been around for more than 24 hours.

I'm going to do a recap of my recap for continuity purposes.

Intro:

Back in June/July, there was an incredibly hot Steam sale where my brother got me Super Meat Boy, Half-Life 1, Fallout 1 and 2, and Portal, among others, including Undertale, as an advance birthday present. Suffice to say, I was extremely happy.

I haven't really played many RPGs (particularly turn-based ones) in general. I know this game draws inspiration from Earthbound, but since I hadn't played the Mother series, I considered to play the whole series before this game to have a better point of comparison. However, I checked the overall length from the three Mother games and saw that it was going to take a really long time if I wanted to play those games and then Undertale, so I said: "You know what, screw it, I'm gonna play Undertale, and if it's a good game it will stand out as one on its own right."

So I started it like a month and a half ago, but I've had sporadic game sessions since then (which I plan to do more often from now on so I don't lose the vibe of it). I have sunk some hours in, but I still want to do a recap here of what I've done before posting where I left off.

Things I know about this game:

Oh boy... Some of you may gonna be mad for some of the things I know already. The thing is, I had only played the demo of Undertale back in 2015 when BGE happened, but I didn't have a Steam account until this year and I wasn't planning on playing it on a near future, so I stumbled into some spoilerific videos without actually knowing it, but I watched them out of curiosity anyway. Some of the things I know include:

-This is arguably the most popular indie game ever, or at least since Super Meat Boy. It started a phenomenon 3 years ago which still has an impact to this day, although the fever has sort of worn of.
-You can spare everyone.
-The game has alternate endings, I believe 4, which include Pacifist and Genocide routes. Not really sure about the others.
-The name of the character you control is canonically Frisk.
-Certain character named Sans is the last boss of the Genocide route, and a song called Megalovania plays in it. I think that's common knowledge already (sort of how Sheik in Ocarina of Time is actually Princess Zelda), but I'll still put it in spoiler tags.
-Something about seven souls, which I didn't remember was a thing until I started playing and have been somehow understanding more about it.
-In the last VGM Contest, there were two (amazing) songs: Battle Against a True Hero, and Hopes and Dreams, none of which have yet appeared in-game yet. Considering I'm currently at the fight with Undyne, I was hoping I could hear BAaTH since the title made sense from what I've seen on my playthrough, and since the YouTube video actually shows her sprite, I was like: "Aww... Well, not yet."
-Finally, by watching a video called: "What happens when you name yourself 'gay'?", I saw that among many other things, after defeating Sans, you get... an unusually lovely sprite. Aparently she goes by the name Chara? Or maybe you change the name to that? I don't know... Time to find out! Yes, I assume I was watching one of the endings, so it's a real shame, but what can you do. At least I don't know the context, so... Yeah, there's that.

I first played the demo 3 years ago, giving "the fallen human" a name that I don't remember. I stumbled upon Flowey, then I was guided by goat momma Toriel. The demo took me around an hour to complete (it stops at the end of the Toriel fight). I remember killing and sparing what I wanted, reaching Toriel and not being able to spare her, so I had to kill her.

...Or so I thought, since I gave my opinion on the demo here on the board (I thought it was an okay experience), and when I mentioned not being able to spare her, someone told me: "Keep trying..." And so I replayed it, taking me around 30 minutes to do it again until I got to Toriel and tried to spare her insistently until I succeeded. Then I got a strange message from Flowey that I didn't understand until I recently watched a video called something like: "What happens if you spare Toriel after killing her?" The message Flowey says is the exact same that he said when I replayed the demo, but now I realized the scary connotation of him saying: "I saw what you did. You killed her, then you regretted it. Veeery clever." Flowey knows things, and that's a little creepy.

Fastforward to now, where I played this whole introductory section again. I didn't know her name was Frisk at first, but then I thought: "Well, I don't identify myself with a little girl, so I won't put my name on it. Frisk it is!" I got a warning saying that this name would give me trouble, but I thought every name would give you this message, so I proceeded anyway. Ohhh boy. I kept dying over and over, something like 5 times on this whole first section alone, and I thought: "I don't remember the game being so difficult. I know I haven't played it a long time but... This is just weird." Then I realized my mistake.

So I went ahead and restarted my file. Since I thought Pacifist was an easy path to start before entering harder battles on other game modes, I thought it was a good way to start. I also named the girl Lily this time since i thought it was a cute name for a merciful girl. Something I found interesting is that the game had certain memory of what you have done on past playthroughs; I noticed this when I saw Flowey saying something like: "What? You want to make me introduce myself as if I hadn't done this before? Anyway..."; and also when Toriel asked me for cinnamon or butterscotch cake, then her "guessing" that I preferred cinnamon.
