It’s hard being a video game protagonist. Maybe you’ll run the rooftops of a pristine dystopia. Maybe you’ll unpick the mysteries of deepest, ruralist Shropshire. Maybe you’ll slog through a dungeon festooned with fiendish traps. Or maybe you’ll fight long into the abyss. And maybe the abyss also fights into you. Maybe there’s another option. Maybe there’s… the pub.
Discussed: Mirror’s Edge Catalyst, Everybody’s Gone To The Rapture, Baldur’s Gate: Siege of Dragonspear, Dark Souls III, No Man’s Sky, Overwatch.
