    I think the first time you see credits, and it's still giving you options, if you keep going it'll lead you to all the other endings and eventually the true one

    In other words, there's only one "good" ending, and the only way to get to it is by going through all the "bad" ones, because it seems like some pathways don't unlock until you've explored other ones.

    tl;dr You've reached the credits? You're (probably) not done (unless you did everything right? idk). Keep going. Eventually you'll stop getting options.

    I personally think the experience as a whole is worth it.

    Oh fuck. I have a Samsung Smart TV too. One from 2015, another from 2017 (although don't they do system updates every now and then to stay current?)

    I'm sure your 2017 model will support it. I think mine is a 2014.

    I don't have the link right now but Netflix's website has a list of devices that support interactive media.

    Does it tell you right from the start that it's not supported? Or does it tell you that once you get to the 'pick your own path' part? The latter would be infuriating.

    If it's not supported you just get a trailer with an intro about that fact

    This is soooo stupid. Like wouldn’t it just be an option with your remote directional pad? This seems like a huge oversight on Netflix’s part

    I don't have a smart TV or anything and it worked fine for me, but maybe that's the problem?

    Anyways, I loved it. Obviously grading on a scale considering they haven't done something like this before, but it was just a super bonkers ride between the meta choices and the conspiracy stuff. I was skeptical of the idea to begin with, but I had a lot of fun playing through the first time and was pleasantly surprised at how easy they made it to revisit previous choices.

    Ok, this was cool and I had fun with it but I’m a little mad at how suddenly it ended for me. Presumably there have to be better endings than the one I got lol.

    Apparently my 2019 Vizio 4K Smart TV isn't smart enough... unable to watch it.

    So what’s the “correct” ending?

    I'd say the fourth one on that article is the correct one.

    Edit: using that as a reference, the order I got the endings in was 5-1-2-3-4, not including dead ends and similar endings.

    I got 5 and when the credits rolled I figured it was done. Didn’t realize there were four others.

    Apparently it has to do with the way Netflix pre-caches content to prevent buffering. Since it’s non-linear it has to pre-cache multiple paths and older versions of the app aren’t able to do that.

    I think that’s because Vizio uses touchcast or whatever (at least I think they still do?)

    This was cool. I liked the ending with the game getting a perfect rating and history then repeating itself the most

    That was the ending I got first and honestly yeah, probably my favorite one.

    My friends and I just got done with this. Had a lot of fun with it. I think we got all 5 endings and finished with death. I kind of liked how the narrative plays out with that as the last ending. It’s like he sees all the alternative timelines/possibilities and ultimately chooses his own fate. It sort of felt like Looper in a way with that as the ending
    The meta stuff was great too.
