Well, now this explains it. It is you who has a difficult life, but I'm afraid I can't help but feel sorry for you. So, it's not a matter of Tommy's personality, it's because you see your mother portrayed in a videogame, and you think that's more than enough. I can understand it, I've seen a similar case on a friend of mine: her father shares personality with Sledge Hammer, and she hates it, and when she saw the show for the first time... Lol, she wanted to destroy all the furniture in her house. Don't get me wrong, I also love that TV show and the character (hopefully my friend doesn't know it), but nothing is more sacred and less asked for than personal opinion.

 

Thanks, man, that's a fair argument!

 

I have to say that because of my personal experience I also look very differently at the villains, because the games and the films don't usually show their backstory. I know that we are supposed to automatically assume that villains are bad, but I often think about what caused them to be bad? What was that defining moment in their lives when Tenpenny and Voldemort's personalities have taken a turn for the worst?

 

Needless to say that if a book/film/game is particularly badly written I occasionally side with a villain.

 

Personal experience definitley affects the way we appreciate the games, true.

Most relevant example is the movie The Joker (2019). Very recommendable. It shows how the typical psycho rises from the underworld from being a peaceful man, due to mistreat from everyone around him.

Yep, heard a lot of good things about it. Still waiting for it to come out for free on the television :D
