I mean, look at the way the characters in games like KOTOR and Mass Effect are presented and then steadily morphed throughout the series into something else by the end. Just like an ancient Buddhist proverb, we are allowed to come to our own conclusions and interpretations of games and their themes. So that being said, here are some things I’ve learned about life from playing video games.
