Fate And Agency: Rod Humble On The Sims 3


A brief snippet from an article over at Rock, Paper, Shotgun on Rod Humble’s E3 speech:

“Did we have any choice in being here today? Or was it pre-determined since the beginning of the universe that all of us would be here today, in this theatre, thinking these exact same thoughts? In short, do we have any free will at all? In the Western tradition, Greek myth and literature examines this subject to great depth. It’s a subject of fate and agency. And what I love about the Greek gods is they’re not smarter than us, and they’re not wiser, and they’re certainly not more emotionally balanced; they’re just more powerful.”
