In open world video games, do you like to play the bad guy? Does your character do things that you'd never, ever do in real life? Or are you the type who, no matter how much you want to, you can't bring yourself to choose the dialogue prompt where your character says something mean?
Whether you want to be naughty or nice in game - have you ever stopped to think what that says about you?
In this episode of Spiritual AF Sundays, creator of the Game and Word substack and podcast, to discuss the intersection between morality and gaming. We look at why people are drawn to games where their actions have real consequences on the setting. Jay also guides those caught up in whatever game-related drama is going on.
