Hello. I went back to playing after a long break since I had some free time. My issue is with the conversation after the sniping and the therapy session into the simulation room to the introduction of Six. Then I had to stop because I was so angry and wanted to throw up. I would have broken Eight’s hands had he done that to me and I was angry that there was no agressive way of telling him to piss off and the narrative sheds a sympathetic light on him. The argument they have is all well and good, but only applied to the enemy. Punching someone during a fight is expected but I wouldnt punch my friend in the face when we’re hanging out. Besides, no matter what they say its still revoking one’s ability to consent. If someone wants to say no, even if they’re on the fence about should still have the ability to say no. Again, the battlefield is a different scenario because you and your opponent are both doing what is needed in order to reach a goal and both sides understand the risk they’re taking.
What I want to ask is that is this issue readressed later wherein Eight has a good and proper character arc where he comes to understand what he did? How that scene went with what Seven’s inner thoughts are about Eight and the convo between the group seem to point to no. If that is the case, then I will drop it. However, if there is a proper readeessing of this theme, I will try to power through as the world building is wonderful. I just cannot take characters who act like this and are still written as good people.
