This is a bit of a tangent, but the parallels are there. Whenever I see people play Papers Please on Youtube or on GB (the Quick Look and the UF), the people playing turn into complete assholes. Some of it is for show - on the QL they made plenty of jokes about sending people packing, but I get a feeling players let the authority go to their head. I can't say people are abusing authority - the game is very strict on what is allowed and what isn't, and the goal is pass as many people as possible to get your pay, but the players usually dismiss anyone who even looks remotely suspicious. This is probably related to the timer, and wanting to process as many as possible. What I'm trying to say in this long-winded paragraph is the game is a great psychological study in how people would act in this specific situation, and the game becomes so much more nefarious for it. It's fascinating to watch.
Anyone know what I'm talking about?
