Mass Effect, Reapers and Philosophy: Just how evil are they, really?

1 min read

Video by Matt S.

I don’t have time to review the full Mass Effect Trilogy remaster; that’s 100+ hours of gaming before I even start to write about it. However, I have always loved the series, and one of the main reasons is that I find the villains, the Reapers, absolutely fascinating, and far more nuanced than villains in most blockbuster games.

In this video, I talk through some of my thoughts about the Reapers. Basically, I don’t think they’re the abject, existential threat that they’re sometimes chalked up as.

Let me know your own thoughts! This is a great topic for discussion.
