2016 is coming to close and can it come to an end any quicker. 2016 is probably the worst year we’ve had in I don’t know how long. With all the deaths, and shit going on in the world, I think it’s about time we do with 2016 what we did to Ol’ Yeller and put it out of its misery.
There are plenty of points in video games, where you have the option to put someone out of their misery. I just finished Rise of the Tomb Raider, and there’s at least 2 different occasions where I could have let someone suffer, or give them a quick death. Many other games pop to mind including Fallout, Skyrim, Grand Theft Auto IV.
In video games, are you someone who wants the person to suffer or are you an angel of mercy to put them to rest? If you had the option to keep them alive, would you? How about your favorite game that offers this moral dilemma?
Sick of 2016? Well so am I! So talk amongst yourselves, The Graveyard Shift is open for business.
