While I used to think that I was quite the self-aware person, recent events have made me question my ability to fully grasp my own thoughts and feelings. This was evident when I saw my friend’s son drawing a picture of his friend’s new girlfriend in his art class. I could barely recognize the person in the picture.
It happens to me all the time. I’ve met so many people that claim to be self-aware that I don’t really know how to respond to them. I love the people that do recognize how other people feel and the people that do understand how other people feel. But these days I’ve noticed that even people who claim to be self-aware don’t always fully grasp what it is they really feel.
The main theme of Deathloop is how the world is governed by a system (or maybe not so much because there’s no way to know that) that doesn’t have a particular reason to exist (or at least one particular reason not to exist). We don’t have a standard, simple, simple rule-based morality.
Some people just want to understand what the fuck their life is like and who they are and what theyre doing right now. But it doesn’t always work. The more you push the issue of what you feel you are worth, the more you will get rejected. I feel it’s because I use my time on Deathloop to think about my issues and what I have to change or change how I feel about certain aspects of myself.
I have a few theories about why it might be so that being rejected of death is a big deal. Perhaps its because rejection of society is a big deal, perhaps its because I’m just too good at being who I am. Or perhaps it’s just because I’m the one that’s been rejected. Maybe I just got tired of the whole idea of being a bad person or being a bad person because of how society judges you.
In the trailers, we see a bunch of images of characters as they appear in various environments. One of my favorite is of Rick and Morty, two characters from R.I.C.E. that are supposed to be a “bad” couple. In one of these drawings, Morty and his girlfriend are posing in a park while Rick holds a gun on them. In another, Morty is sitting on a bench in a forest with an axe in his hands.
A lot of these drawings are pretty nice. They don’t depict the awfulness of the people who made them, though. The way these images are drawn, it’s pretty much obvious that they are all supposed to be Rick and Morty characters (I’m not even going to bother looking at the faces of the people who drew these). I’m not saying this is a good idea, but it’s also not a bad idea.
This is the sort of thing that happens when you’re too lazy to do the drawing yourself. You go to a park and have a bunch of people pose for your amusement. You then go to find someone who can draw these guys and find out what their face looks like. It’s not that lazy or that bad of an idea. Im not going to go through all the faces of all the people who drew these pictures. I’m just going to link to my drawing of Rick and Morty.
If we are lucky, these guys have the ability to take a picture and turn it into a drawing. I have a sketchy example. For instance, I have a drawing of Rick and Morty. Rick has a pretty great voice, but for Morty, the voice is “Whoa! Here’s Rick! Here’s Morty!”.
So you could easily imagine that Rick and Morty are not always the same person. This character is very much based on a real person, Morty O’Bannion, however, the comic book version is more like Rick and Morty in a cartoon. So if you are an RPG fan, look out, there is a Rick and Morty in your game.
