In the latest trailer of Far Cry 3, we’re introduced to a Dr.Earnhardt, a drugged up doctor who shows our main protagonist that even the island locals can be crazy too. We’re shown snippets of what seems like a bad shroom trip that Jason Brody goes through after being injected with something the doctor made out of some herbs. You’ll also see that during the game Jason can pick up plants to induce the trip on his own.
I’m left wondering a couple of things after watching this trailer. How would the drug trips change the gameplay and why was it added into the game? I could understand the realism behind finding these hallucinogenic plants in a jungle cause we all know that jungles have weird shit in them but how would this affect the story? Does this seem like a gimmick or does this do something to Jason Brody’s psyche?
