Why the illusion of choice is worse than no choice at all

A look at choice in video games, and why having the illusion of choice can make a gamer feel worse than not being given a choice at all. A brief overview of two of the most popular games to offer choices that don't really matter at the end of the day provides a perspective on what it can feel like to realize nothing you have done in a video game makes a difference. (BioWare, Culture, Industry, Mass Effect 2, Mass Effect 3, PC, The Walking Dead - A Telltale Games Series, Xbox 360)

Illusion of choice or not, the way the game delivered the story was really quite something. I was disappointed to find that none of the choices really matter, but the delivery was SOO strong... i dismissed it quite quickly and replayed the game.

At the risk of sounding ridiculously corny: The saying of, "It's not where you're going, it's how you get there", and "Life's a journey not a destination". So on, and so forth.
I am left feeling satisfied because that is truly how I feel.

One day we will all die. What matters is what you do in the meantime.
