The most interesting thing I found while researching this article or talking to the author was when ted pulled his finger from his mouth and said, “I said, ‘I am not the devil’”.
Well, yeah, he might be, but I don’t think it’s quite as entertaining to hear him say it. I didn’t know that he was the real devil until I saw his comment at the top of this article. If I had known that, I might have done a bit better job of not liking him.
I also read that you can play devil’s advocate in this game, but I didnt know if that could be achieved.
I think the devil is an interesting concept. I can’t speak about the game-play in depth, but I do know that it should be fun. In Deathloop, our goal is to take out eight Visionaries, so we should be looking for evil, or at least evil that has a high probability of being evil.
There is actually a lot of great discussion within this thread of what makes a good devil. There is also a lot of discussion about the moral dilemma of the various options available, and how one could determine which one is the best one.
The devil is a very personal choice, and has to be considered on a case-by-case basis. For instance, if in a situation where the devil is a good guy who does evil to people, there is a good chance he is a good guy, but a high probability of bad, then he might just be evil. For instance, there are a lot of evil organizations that are run by evil people. The devil might be the bad guy.
At least some of the moral dilemmas we face in life are made up of other moral dilemmas and choices, and each situation must be considered on its own merits. People who choose to believe that the devil is a person with good intentions might not realize that their choice is based on a moral principle that is a choice between good and evil.
The thing about bad is, it’s almost impossible to be 100% bad at anything. For instance, the only way to be 100% bad at something is to choose to do it 100% of the time. You couldn’t possibly be 100% evil, so you couldn’t possibly be 100% bad. But the devil, the devil is just one bad choice in millions. So it’s fair game.
The devil is a term that is often used to refer to a person who is bad at something. But its a term that is often used to refer to a person who is evil.
An evil person is someone who chooses to do bad things over good things. But evil is not a choice. It is a nature. And if you are evil, you are doing evil every single day.
