Video Game Virtue - Men Of Low Moral Fiber

In this crossover episode, we're featuring another member of The Overthink Podcast, Men Of Low Moral Fiber. They're a podcast about retro video games, specifically those related to the LucasArts gaming company. Normally, they cover a different retro game each month, but in this special Side Quest episode, they're joined by a guest (Saffyre Falkenberg) to discuss the morality within video games, and the systems developers create to portray (or create) their own senses of morality. 

------------

It's been awhile since we quested on the side, but we've been planning this one for awhile. We're excited to have Saffyre Falkenberg on to discuss the ethics of video games. We cover everything from the decision trees of Telltale games and light/dark side of KOTOR, to the Dragon Age approval system and if you can beat Super Mario Bros. without killing anyone/anything (SPOILER: you totally can!).

Join us as we dive into this virtuous ep. We'd love to hear your thoughts on this broad topic as well. Send us your additional comments to be a part of the conversation (MOLMFpod@gmail.com).

Saffyre teaches in the composition and women and gender studies programs at TCU and Collin College.
