"As fascinating so i guess in general are you are you optimistic about the the philosophy that is being presented to players are do you think overall that that the philosophies and the the fact that philosophy plays a role at all um are your optimistic about the potential influence that these games are having i don't think that having an influence kind of all by themselves i don't think anyone needs to be worried that anyone is getting their ethical position so relief from video games and not considering the real world and they're real relationships and things i think it's just another framing device to get you thinking about these topics in a different light you know you can think oh in real life i might have said that but if if things with different which is what videogames radio you know there are question about if things were different what would you do there they're kind of counterfactual then them what would i do and it just i think it broadens your ability to think about things rather than at an air rather than pointing you down a particular path at the exclusion of all else so i am optimistic estate as india very heavily so you have books and films it will have a video nasties and they have their pulp fiction and they're all those things games out there and they were also wonderful indy games and wonderful mainstream games an amazing it's had to hide the philosophical insights a bit better but their games of the other half that value on it i think he can't sale games in general the hill that good or bad i think the got to look individual games youth the at dragon concern is a wonderful expiration of wonderful depressing book of lists version of what what masih's and how parents can cover lots of child safe and interesting game even if it's not a huge mainstream game so i will not necessarily say the call of duty colleges harry's is necessarily so philosophically interesting though their political considerations about a number of show no russian element over koliqi tmobile to a thing so everything.

"That's that's what gamzo um and they they do present moral question to us negatively you know people people use them to just took to create their own morality i think has a quick the beginning of the book from edward snowden where i am glen green wildernesses interviewing him and he realizes that snowden has drawn his morality explicity from a video game to played as a child things are taken which told him that the the good person was a person who stood up to repression at stood up to two overwhelming odds and succeeded that way nuts want one of the reasons snowden did what he did which was to release all his falls whether you think you did was buoyed it was a good thing or a bad thing he did a moral thing because he been educated morality by video games which his brazelle but that's the modern world and that's how a lot of us that this is the media we are most exposed to any to me to where we have interrupt to retake so we get tomatoes choices and get to be used to making choices which includes choices either a subjectively good anyway so i rented under the rambling thing and i just wanted to add that one of the main reasons i think that video games a good for exploring philosophy as that video games off fund and there are so many people out there who if you gave them a philosophy book or a video game they definitely prefer the video game over the book so if you want to get especially young people interested in philosophical ideas you'll better off giving them again if we're being honest yar amber are the gets interesting because now there is a lot of bikes social experiments iran's brand research on all these different ways the people are collecting information about people's behaviour using games so there the realizing the games are a great way to to tap into where people really think and so so kind of looking back on the history of video games you have basically these experiments thirds are.

"The narrative the story around it on the experimental aspect which is the kind of interaction of the variables and it's that side of things that i think is far more effective in video games because of their interactivities say the fact that for example if you were exploring the trolley problem if you address cars from for the philosophy students and you ask them what they would do they can easily say oh yes no of course i pull a lever but if you have it in a video game in a you present this die lamma in the context of a complex narrative that they've been exploring through the eyes of eur character that they've come to know that they feel and control all they feel immersed in the narrative and then you make them make a decision they actually have to press the button to to pull that lever or to make that decision and they have to watch the consequences play out on scene and it's just much more engaging and i think encourage much more thought than if somebody just asks you kind of of hand in the classroom as well i think that's where video games have a benefit over all the media i think is a dream of the big it fabled who which again spoilers if anyone snow play fabled tear in a very old game now his is going to play some poison spoiler skip next that he seconds dad's a section at the very end of the game where you give them a choice between eu dog your family or cough the people in the world who all have been killed during the the courts the story you get to choose between which one of them you resurrect like literally health population oil family oil dog and a some terrifying to threaten people resurrected the dog because they thought that they would never get a to the was an adult was most important things in the end chris iggo sniff out treasure so.
