Isaac will wake up from hyper sleep realizing it was all a dream...DS:4. But the twist is that it starts to come true so actually it wasn't a dream but a premonition so in DS:4 you actually replay DS:1. *passes out*

So basically I'm to take away from this that nobody plays Dead Space for the story...

Im sorry GS but i was actually thinking it be a recap of the events, not a mess of memories from each of you. I played Dead Space 1 like 2 years ago,and Dead Space 2 1 year ago and still remember the  important bits. I understand if this was mostly as a joke and poke fun of but some might think you didn't rely give a damn about the actual story of the series

(sorry grammar)

the story or even the universe in which the game takes place isnt very interesting, they just keep the player under a veil of mystery at all times to make u believe there is some great revelation awaiting.

 if u want to kill scary monsters in an scary environment, and be this close to pee yourself, then go for this game but dont bother getting invested in the plot line. u will end up depressed and feeling sry for Clark who you can only help to survive one hell to go into another.

Forget about Isaac...you are missing ther point...all you need to know is that:

The Marker is glorious and divine...it will make as whole again!! Altman be praised!

Buttom line. While DS1 was a great game, and DS2 a decent one. They both had horrible stories.

Way to go, guys!!

DS: Isaac was haunted by Nicole's ghost while repairing the Ishimura and there was a story involving the government.

DS 2: Nicole's ghost lured Isaac to the Marker while he tried to escape with Ellie a doomed planet and killing some human characters in the process.

I guess...

The great thing is that although many people are saying how stupid this video is, missing story elements are actually being completed and discussed in the comments. Not too bad for a stupid post :-) (now actually thinking about acquiring DS)

Don't tell me you guys remember this great analysis (Which I admit its GREAT)of these from so long ago? Then they have to invent a new NOBEL AWARD for such great memory.You've guys must of pulled a lot of notes from your drawers to do this.ITS not complete though you've should continued to dead space 3 but of course without spoiling the end.GOOD JOB BUT ? There is a trick somewhere in there.

Crap, I can't remember what I did yesterday. Also, I seem to have a very hard time remembering movies as well. Sometimes it bothers me a bit. My friend will be describing a part in a movie we both watched some time ago and I will have comepletely forgot about what he's trying to say. What's weird to me is I can remember phone numbers from 20+ years ago that I haven't dialed since then.

That was funny.  Just to say I know it;s was made just for fun. 

But i'd like to point out 1 small thing that most don't get. It not a virus. The Marker give's out subsonic sound that feed you info. Some cant hear it which is why not everyone turn or at the same time. Now what the info IS... Is unknow.

But from the big black muti eye thing that trys to kill you near the end of 2. Im guessing it the data of whatever  race made the black marker. But it's to much. Like trying to hear ever sound on the plant for the past 1000 years at once. So you go nuts and your DNA start to became like the Old race so you can. But cant fully change. Which make's odd half dead things. The hive mind is do to everyone being forced hear the same thing, Makeing everyone mind line up the same way.

I love how the RPG/MMO expert of gamespot is the only one that remembers the information to a T, while the rest are like Um..... I think space zombies where involved.... govt conspiracies... meanwhile Kevins just like ok this is what really happened.....

Funny and all I guess, but I don't get it, to be quite honest. I never found the series' story hard to follow and I was quite into it with the previous games.

Haha, great video! It's always hard to grasp all the details when you play the games with one year intervals.

For all those having problems about the video not being a proper explanation, the beginning of Dead Space 3 summarizes the story for those who don't remember or haven't played the first two games so stop whining geez, when did people become so self entitled?

Well, this is a different approach, all right. I liked it. But it could have been funnier if all of you sitting around a table were discussing the story and try to gather all the pieces together.

@foxrock66 

You've got to remember, if the story isn't played out in half hour long cut scenes with quick time events then it's too much for most people to absorb apparently. Heck these people thought Halo's storyline was hard to follow, so I'm hardly surprised Dead Space threw them for a mental loop.

@TrueGB It was a fun video we put together because as we converged to remember the story elements of the series, we realized how difficult it was to form coherent thoughts on the matter. So we decided to have fun with it and bring it to you.

HOW TERRIBLE OF US!

I am still confused. If u play the move game. U see that Alor of Them are just illusions so is the thing real or just in Their heads..

@Kevin-V @TrueGB I like the video as an interesting presentation. Don't mind whiners I guess. Just make another more official version of it if you guys felt bad about this one.

@Kevin-V @TrueGB Well, nevermind us, we made the mistake of thinking it was supposed to be useful, instead of just funny. But, since we are on the subject, a real recap of the story would not be such a bad idea :)
