Beyond Rated-M: Beyond “Why?” in Black Desert Online

I dived into highly-acclaimed sandbox MMO Black Desert Online* to explore how combining traditional MMO systems with endless compulsion loops can make your actions feel insignificant, and an open-world seem smaller than ever.

Christian players may want to pay special attention to the segment starting from 12:37, where I discuss the “Black Spirit” you are forced to serve, and how this spiritual conflict mirrors the potential issues seen in Black Desert Online’s gameplay systems.
