When I first heard of the game Life is strange, I thought it will be about Max’s high school life. Never know the story turns out to be that way, and the ending is not what I except. At first, I thought the teacher Jefferson was a nice teacher who would help Max with her struggles, and it turns out he is crazy and kills students just the take photos of them.
I think the whole game brings out the idea of: even you have the power to change the past, those who need to die will die. For example: Max saw her best friend Chloe got shot in the washroom, and she discovers that she got the power to rewind time and change the past. During the game, Max has used her power to save Chloe for 4 to 5 times. But at the end, Chloe still dies. Max needs to learn of letting go and move on without Chloe. Max gets to choose between Chloe or saving the whole town, most people would think saving more people is more important than saving just one person; but Max has to save Chloe for so many times, if she let Chloe dies at the end wouldn’t it be “wasting time”. Even Max has learned from using her powers and she has become more optimistic, she still has to face the fact of losing Chloe.
Max always thinks about her friend’s safety first, even her powers gave her health bad effects. Even though Max has the power to rewind time, she could not save everyone. For example: Kate suicide. Max could have saved Kate if she showed more care about kate during the game, but that will make Chloe think that Max does not care about her anymore. There is so many decision making during the game, and I think that is what we usually do.
