Sometimes you just get the feeling something went wrong. Plato was of the opinion that everything we see in the world is actually an imperfect, copied version of the real universe. AWESOME/10 Writer Andy Astruc likes to believe that’s true, but only as it applies to video games; certain games are simply imperfect versions of their perfect forms. In some offshoot quantum universe, very similar to ours, SEGA made a video game based around one simple, yet intriguing, concept: what if robots could think. And what if they could blend perfectly into society. The resulting universe was explored by the player in a masterfully nuanced way which allowed investigation and deep insight into the philosophical, societal and political implications of artificial intelligence. In our universe, they made Binary Domain, a third-person shooter.
