Rev Rant: Anti-heroism
Every Thursday (or thereabouts), Anthony Burch discusses some aspect of gaming culture for his video rant series.
This week's rant touches on a much larger issue of theme/narrative/character personality matching up with the tone of gameplay, but it's a start. And it's also the shortest rant I've recorded in, uh, ever, which is probably a good thing.
Anyway, it's about how games that are actually about how fun it is to kill people typically shouldn't pretend their protagonists are heroic, decent figures.
