Not a good representation of depressed people at all. I can't take this game seriously when one of the main characters is literally a chick with a fuckin' choker and a $40 Forever 21 sweater. Wow. You're really out here fetishizing depression and suicide. Holy fuck.
great job on hating on angela. you're so fucking smart! uwu
Excuse me, sorry for the reply, but please calm down?
This game may not be an accurate representation on the depression you've encountered, but that's only you. Please understand that everyone goes through different experiences in life!
Second, what the main character wears should not affect you. That's someone else's style that you just insulted. It was an unnecessary comment to make.
Third, Angela He most likely didn't mean to "fetishize" depression and suicide. That also is an incorrect assumption on your part.
Thank you for reading!
i don't wanna be rude butttttttttttttt,,,everybody has different views on depression! its different for every person struggling with it. also hate the game, not the creator. (ps: you should really fix that childish behavior of yours!! its not gonna be good when you move on in life) :)
First of all, I know your comment is a month old, and it's not the best etiquette to still respond, but I have thought about this game a lot today and want to give my opinion regardless. Second of all:
Congratulation on missing the point!
The entire game is about how easy it is to miss the signs of depression in other people. That's why you don't get to save her on the first playthrough (if you got that far) and only get to talk to her on your second playthrough, when you already know what's going to happen. Depression can absolutely show itself in an ugly way. It can definitely look like not having showered in weeks and wearing the same pajamas again. But the point is that it can look like anyone, and that sometimes it's really hard to see.
You are claiming this is a fetishisation of depression and suicide because the suicidal girl looks too, what, normal? Happy? Priviledged? But I think you are the one Twisting your narrative of depression in an ugly way, in only allowing the people who are suffering the "right" way to be recognised as actually depressed. And it's not helping. What you are doing is just too similar to "kids in Africa have it worse". Instead of recognising that mental illnesses can affect many different people in different ways, you deny to recognise the suffering of those who are less visible. It affects people to not be seen, that's the plot of missed messages. I hope you will never need to understand.
