Now take that emotional attachment and dial it up to 11 for the actual body of the person you loved. The hands you held, the lips you kissed, the freckles on the nose you thought were cute.
@Stronty Girl that is heart breaking. I’m a vaguely related aside, I’m currently reading an anthropological text on violent crowd behaviour which is horrific “Among the Thugs” and it’s making me realise how much we distance ourselves from reality in games. I’m not a fan of in game gratuitous violence but the book made me question even more the ability people have to disassociate what they do or see in a game from what this would be in reality. Your loved-one zombie is a great example as I imagine any real thought about applications in reality might make some games stomach churning. Until now I just thought zombies LOL funny characters, and that was it.
