Rev Rant: Anti-heroism

Aug 23 // Anthony Burch

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. 

Hit the jump to watch it.
