Re: The Defiance Thread - News about the Show and Game

^No, if the gameplay has no real impact on the show, then I'm fine with that; it means the show's storyline will be shaped by its writing staff rather than random game players, as it should be. But though I'm glad for the purposes of the show that all the alleged interactivity of the game is just empty hype, I don't respect that it's empty hype, because it's basically lying to the game players, promising them a level of control they won't actually have. Just because I don't share those players' tastes or interests, that doesn't mean I approve of deceiving them. I'm not a simple-minded person. I can hold more than one thought in my head at once.
