“MMO Existential Crisis” or “Dear God, Am I a Monster?”
Syp thinks we are the real villains of MMOs.
We have no qualms against torturing, assassinating, stealing or even committing genocide if our superiors structure it as a “quest objective.” We have no options for diplomacy and no recourse but to end all life in our wake. We do all of this and move on without a second thought as to the carnage and emotional wreckage we leave behind. We build our success on mountains of corpses and call ourselves “heroes.”
Oh my god. I am a horrible, horrible person! Talk about mid-life MMO existential crisis!
