you know I spotted something this play through, If y'all have noticed this and discussed it already, feel free to ignore;
When Damas is going into the whole “didn’t your father teach you to pick your battles”
Daxter quickly makes the whole “IXNAY” movements with his hands at him over Jak’s shoulder
And then Jak turns away and says in that kind of slightly weak voice “I didn’t know my father…”
Wondering now if maybe Jak grew up with at least a bit of that daddy complex and if it actually really affected him not knowing his real family as a kid(compounded perhaps by the developments in Jak 2??)
I mean if anyone knew about that, it’d be Dax.
And Dax jokes a lot about a lot of things, including the whole Dark Jak thing, and for the most part that works for Jak, but Dax was like “uh uh no don’t say that” because obviously it took some sort of affect on Jak when it was said, unlike a lot of things that roll off him. (Later parts in the game with Daxter being a further protective friend too!)
