With the addition of Part 5 Jason, aka Roy, coming to Friday the 13th: The Game, players are upset that he will be played the same as other Jasons do: That he can take a shotgun blast and get up, that he can have the same abilities, and will be killed just as all other Jasons.
The facts are though, that around 90% of what exists in the game, never existed in the films. Counselors never had to find gas, a battery, keys or a propeller to escape. Counselors never called in Tommy Jarvis or the cops. Counselors never had the availability of pocket knifes, firecrackers, health sprays, bats, wrenches, machetes and axes.
Yet it's accepted.
Jason’s shack and Pamela’s sweater was only in Friday the 13th Part 2. Yet, players accept that the shack and sweater is on all maps and is the method to kill any Jason on any map. So why not Roy? Jason in parts 2, 3 and 4 was human. He can take a shotgun blast and survive. So why not Roy? Why does the Camp Crystal Lake map even exist? Pamela Voorhees was the killer in Friday the 13th (1980). But it does. And we accept it. Jason never had morph, sense, shift and stalk abilities in the film. But the game does, and we accept it. So why can't Roy have them also?
The facts are simple. Friday the 13th: The Game is fictitious, based on fictitious films. There is no rhyme or reason, nor is it needed. It's just a game, why you have to be mad?
Relax. Enjoy the game. And stop looking for facts in fiction.
