He's right tho, Bioshock is supposed to be a game where you defeat Objectivism but you rely on it in every aspect of the game other than the shitty "moral" decision of "should I murder these orphans and get less rewards than if I didn't". System Shock 2 had the same problem, where the game sets up this idea of man vs machine in the protagonist, but then goes nowhere with it because the devs were scared of punishing the player for upgrading their character.
I don't understand why people got so upset by this video, if anything he's arguing that there should be less narrative dumping in games and more mechanical reinforcement of themes, which just means more (and more interesting) gameplay for us.

We don't because it doesn't really matter.

I've always loved when pretentious fags come up with made up bullshit terms like in the OP like they're trying to legitimize something out of fucking videogames.

Its not pretentious, just dumb and tries too hard. But at the very least it doesn't presume to lecture me on the nature of violence and horrors of war every time I kill some dude

just dumb and tries too hard.
that's literally what pretentious means though, trying to talk about concepts you don't understand in order to try and come off as smart, the whole multiverse theory is beyond retarded in that game but they try to show it off like this grand narrative device

Wasn't that one of the marketing lines for gal gun two?

Campster may be a completely insufferable SJW, but I still think the majority of his points are valid. His videos on not-current games are usually very good - I particularly enjoyed the recent one on Anachronox.

What is bullshit about that term?

I hate this idea that every element of a particular piece of art must MEAN something. A movie scene takes place in a red room, what could it meeeeean? Could it be that the director is telling us that the protagonists soul is painted with blood? WOW SUCH CRITIC BETTER POST MY HOT STUFF ON YOUTUBE.
It's just lazy and retarded and not at all how creative people make their creations. And now this horseshit is plaguing videogame criticism because all these e-celeb soyboys are insecure and need to validate their videotoy hobbie.

You can do both, though. Is Shadow of the Colossus less fun because of the part where you get sucked into the pool? Is Kingdom Hearts less fun because you lose the keyblade at Hollow Bastion? Those lulls in action/progression can cause even greater highs if played out properly.
