    cllaude's Nier Automata (PC)

    [August 30, 2018 11:56:32 PM]
    While playing NieR today, it became more and more obvious on the ethics behind loyalty to a cause, even when it comes to sacrificing yourself. I finally got past the first boss and into the resistance. What really showed to me that it was truly about loyalty to some weird brainwashed state was 2B and 9S using the black box, and all the held back emotions that 2B had. It showed that there's some extreme restrictions and responsibility on these androids, with all the glory to mankind on their shoulders.
    Another thing I noticed was that even when the machines weren't hostile while you are back on earth, they are still deemed as dangerous in a sense, really pushing the androids vs machine deal going on.

    Playing more today I finally was able to beat the first boss after so many attempts. The auto-save function restriction was a pain at first, but I can appreciate what it's for.
    Thinking more of the character interactions, I could see the differences between 2B and 9S. There was the dialogue between them that showed 9S as more human like, feeling his own emotions and finding enjoyment in even having a partner for a task. 2B countered this emotion, by sticking to command and rules no matter what. I can only still think of the ethics behind machines vs androids. Does one "life" get more respect due to the fact they are further advanced? I haven't gotten too far, so I am unable to really think too deeply into this. I can see where this game is going with some of these concepts though.

    NieR: Automata brings up ethical narratives with the entire war against machines part of the story. In it, I was able to see different character traits rather fast. For instance, 2B is a colder character, who listens to commands no matter what (so far). From telling 9S that he canít be happy due to emotions being prohibited, to really quickly taking over as captain once nearly her entire team was wiped out. One can think of the ethical dilemma of protecting a person over following commands. Itís interesting as well with the wiping out of the machines, since I am pretty sure 2B and all the other fighters are also machines of some kind.I really liked the game so far, and itís been an interesting introduction to this post apocalyptic world.
