In fact, I believe that it even goes beyond disabilities, and focuses more on faults in all of us. Not just physically, but psychologically as well. Although the disability focus you mentioned is indeed an important theme, I just believe that there's another, more grand message in all of it.philosophish wrote:Exactly. In fact, the lesson this game teaches us - which I have adopted at an early age anyway - is that we shouldn't give a shit about anyone's disabilities, and when we find ourselves affected by them - e.g., disgusted, scared, intrigued, or even turned on, whatever - we should learn to ignore that and look beyond them, and see the person behind the disability.
It also truly focuses on how humans interact with each other, and what relationships between people could look like, as well as the consequences of actions and the fact that no relationship is ever perfect. In fact, none of the routes' endings even suggest that -- well, I haven't done Lilly's yet, but I'd hope that her route agrees with the others. All of the relationships have these big imperfections, but we have to be able to look past those imperfections and find love and friendship and comfort in others anyway.
Sorry 'bout that, I kinda did assume that. I've just seen so much of it in so many places that I kinda just wanted to make sure we were on a similar page, y'know?philosophish wrote:I'm almost insulted that you assumed I was in any way superficial, but then again, how could you know I wasn't, right?
Sorry if I offended.
