About Far Cr 3...

Far Cry 3 is undoubtedly one of the best games I have ever played. And I don't say that to many games. I'm someone who loves strategy games. And this is not a strategy game. So now you'll understand.


Plot of Far Cry 3

Jason Brody is on vacation in Bangkok with his friends and goes on a skydiving trip with his friends. However the skies malfunction and the group falls into an island. On the island the friends are captured by a terrorist leader named 'Vaas'. Brody manages to escape the terrorists with the help of his older brother named 'Grant' but however he dies in the process. Also another friend named 'Vincent' has already been killed by the terrorists. Jason Brody escapes from captivity and swears to bring down the terrorists and their leader Vaas. When escaping Brody comes across a man named Dennis, who is a man of a group named the 'Rakyat', a tribe native to the island. Dennis helps Brody escape and provides him refuge at their village.

Dennis believes Brody can help them exterminate the terrorists from the island and gives Brody some tattoos that help Brody gain some special abilities. Dennis brings Brody to meet their leader, Citra who lives in a temple secluded within the forest.

So the battle begins. Sometimes with stealth and other times with brute force, Brody will have to advance fighting with the terrorists and rescue his friends one by one. Along the journey Brody finds out that Vaas is merely the executioner and the real leader is a man named Hoyt. So after killing Vaas, Brody goes after Hoyt and kills him too.

The game has two endings however. But I'm not going to spoil the surprise for you. So you better work up to that and find out. Fair warning!!! One ending has some nudity involved. You will be given two choices to select from and the ending will depend on your choice. Don't worry, you can always watch both the endings on YouTube.

Oh, almost forgot. Your girlfriend, Daisy, too is in captivity of the terrorists. So better hurry up.

About Vaas...

You know the saying 'There are some villains you can't hate"? Well the same thing applies for Vaas Montenegro.

He is bloody crazy. Probably one reason all Far Cry fanatics love him more than Jason Brody. The first thing that comes to my mind when I hear Far Cry 3, is Vaas. On Wikia page he is simply known as 'The Psychopath'.

Surprisingly enough he was formerly associated with the Rakyat and to our disbelief, he is the brother of the Rakyat leader Citra (Citra Montenegro). Something must have happened and Vaas has joined Hoyt in his pirate missions.

Vaas knows how to work his mouth and put the fear of living hell into a man's mind. One of the most famous speech of Vaas on 'insanity' is as follows.

"Did I ever tell you what the definition of insanity is? Insanity is doing the exact... same f**king thing... over and over again, expecting... shit to change. That... is crazy; but the first time somebody told me that...I dunno, I thought they were bullshitting me, so boom — I shot him. The thing is, okay... He was right. And then I started seeing: everywhere I looked, everywhere I looked, all these f**king pricks, everywhere I looked, doing the exact same f**king thing... over and over and over and over again thinking: "This time, it's gonna be different; no, no, no, no, no, please... This time it's gonna be different." ...I am sorry, I don't like the way you are looking at me... Okay, do you have a f**king problem in your head? Do you think I am bullshitting you? Do you think I am lying? F**k you! Okay? F**K YOU! It's okay, man. I'm gonna chill, hermano. I'm gonna chill... The thing is... alright, the thing is: I killed you once already... and it's not like I am f**king crazy. It's okay... It's like water under the bridge.
Did I ever tell you the definition... of insanity?"

Rakyat leader, Citra.
Rakyat leader, Citra.
Jason Brody, or you...
Jason Brody, or you...
