    Mar 30th, 2018 at 00:04:49     -    Here They Lie (PS4)

    I have no idea what is going on in this game. But there is a lot of immoral stuff happening. At one point, there is a theater full of people watching other people fall from the ceiling, being hanged. As a player you can run up and save them, but it doesn't really matter what you do, because more people will just continue to fall no matter how many you save. That certainly didn't make me feel good! I wanted to help them, especially because I thought there might be a chance for them to help me later on, but probably not. It was also very gruesome. The sounds and seeing it from all around with the VR really makes it have more of an impact. The game is only getting more interesting as I continue.

    Now the morals of the game are coming forward, however Im not even quite sure what they are yet. The NPCs of the world attack on another, they were animal heads and don't use words. They beat each other up seemingly for no reason at all. The game is trying to tell me something, I think I just don't yet have enough information. Making the game playable in VR definitely adds some moral dilemma. VR makes the game feel more real, more frightening, and more personal. Players feel like the main character because their perspective is more literally the player's perspective. It will undoubtedly come into play as the game's story develops further. I can't wait for everything to be more clear!

    I just started Here They Lie, so far Im terrified. I haven't progressed to far, so not much about the story or any ethical issues have come up, but I can feel them coming. I get the sense that the main character has done something bad and can't remember. There also seems to be some kind of cult running around. I already have many questions, and so far the game has hooked me. If I am correct, and the main character has done something bad, I like the choice to have the player figure it out and learn of it over time. I think it will add to the moral discussion.

    The end of Firewatch really came together for me. I loved the moral choice of being flirty and kind of taking the relationship with Delilah further or deciding to stay true to your ailing wife. Its a hard choice to make! Delilah is a great character! She is funny and easy to connect with. And on one hand your wife is across the world and very sick. So sick she probably doesn't even remember Henry. But on the other hand, she is sick and Henry's wife. It seems so easy to just have a thing with Delilah, and then the game really makes you feel guilty and a little nervous. By adding the conspiracy that someone has been recording and overhearing their conversations the player can feel both of those emotions if they have made the morally "bad" choice. I thought it was brilliant. And I personally think that making the ending a little anti climactic helped that. It made you feel bad that you only felt guilty because you thought you would get caught.
