Emotional abuse by video game characters
I think there should be some kind of warning label on games cause a lot of the characters talking to you are emotionally abusive. I guess the writers think it's clever. Often you only have a couple of dialogue options to respond, and can't kill them cause they're an essential NPC.
I know it's "just a game" but I feel depressed and angry when it happens. I talk to my therapist about the characters almost as much as my family, and I have nightmares.
