    AnnesNotOkay's Nier: Automata (PS4)

    [September 28, 2018 12:50:57 AM]
    Decided to run around and explore and found actual humans! No significant interaction here but it is ironic when 2b is called by a fellow android to check up she starts acting like an android again with the things she says. It's like an internal struggle for here. And it's interesting to see the other androids interact like the one that called her was very giddy and bubbly, very much human like and curious about the weather. So was 9s, when he asked about how if the boars grew as big and out abnormal as the plants. The world around is very interesting. I found the "pray" feature when interacting with the dead bodies of other player androids also ironic for androids can't/wont/ don't even understand the idea of praying.

    This time around playing the game was even more interesting in the last. It seems as the story progresses the tables have turned. This game seems to have an underlying theme of human versus machine and right now i'm only experiencing machines vs machines and yet one group of machines (the andriods) seem to posses and long for human qualities. In the scene where 9s sacrificed himself for 2b, 2b shows emotion visibility for the first time. Even though she is an android (machine) and HER WORDS "emotion is forbidden" she seems visually disturbed at the death/near death of 9s and even in her voice she is hurt and upset. If her logic of emotions not being allowed and irrelevant to the mission, why did it take her so long/ affect her so much that she lost a fellow android in combat KNOWING that they can re spawn and KNOWING that there are probably hundreds like him. This is very interesting and I'm excited to see how this goes. She also comments (once they get back to earth for another mission) on how the machines are just staring off into space and non-hostile, this is a strange concept to her and it doesn't necessarily aline with traditional android logic. (Also I didn't know there were still animals left on this earth and i killed like 5 moose and they're so hard to kill haha).

    I was particularly excited about playing this game because of it's style, although I have played it before now at a friends place and out of order playing it from the beginning is really interesting. The art style is completely mesmerizing as is the fact that this game managed to capture almost every camera angle/ mechanic of most games today in one scene: top down, vertical, side scrolling first person the whole nine yards which make the entire thing super interesting to play. One thing that caught my ear in particular is something that the male character (male version of 2B?) said: "Machines don't think, everything they do is meaningless", once I got to the machine building room and the recording was playing "from before" where humans used the factory to build weapons and now its just spam building killer robots. And I found that quote kind of ironic because wasn't it implied that 2B and them ARE machines themselves, like androids? 2B also says that emotions are forbidden, after the guy mentions that he enjoys working with a partner. That statement alone could be ethically controversial; although I'm only at the tip of the iceberg of the game that one statement could carry a heftier meaning that maybe the only way to efficiency is to eliminate emotions,feelings, making *humans* more like machines. And is that something we want to become more alike? Sacrifice the very thing that makes us humans to be more efficient? Fascinating game so far...
