This week's Rev Rant is about the implementation of morality systems in games like Fable or BioShock or InFamous (though I recorded this before playing the latter, getting 2/3 of the way through it has done nothing to change the basic points I make in the rest of the video).

This is probably the ugliest of the Rev Rants thus far -- for some reason, Final Cut Pro thought it'd be adorable to make everything look jaggy, randomly make parts of my shirt disappear, and do this weird thing where my voice keeps going while my mouth stops moving until the next shot starts. Also, I'm smarmier than usual.

Either way, the basic ideas are there. Hit the jump to watch the rant, then feel free to comment below.
