Episode 14: Stop Hitting Yourself

We discuss a thousand streaming services, and a thought experiment on violence in games.

Tangents:

Main Topic: Games Sure Are Violent

  • Games are violent
  • Do they have to be?
  • Are games that aren’t violent as compelling? (Adventure Games, Animal Crossing, Stardew Valley, etc)
  • Violence as a mechanic. Shooting, punching, jumping on Goomba’s heads.
  • Even games that aren’t known for violence offer some way of causing harm to others.
  • Does it matter?

Final Thoughts

One Dumb Thing: Everyone has a Sub Streaming Service!!!

I work hard, play hard, and browse Wikipedia the hardest. I’m always reading about games. I have a modest collection and strive to promote that videogames are for every single person.
