Allowing a player to make a binary decision and then punishing them with a slew of unintended consequences is a cornerstone of video games. Satchell Drakes and Matt Perez discuss how they approach morality choices in games and talk to Dr. Casper Harteveld, an assistant professor of game design at Northeastern University, about using decision-making in games to both teach and expand the teaching of societal issues as well as use crowd-sourced player data to infer conclusions about human behavior. Also on the show, Paul Tassi and Erik Kain discuss EA's plans for 2018 and the importance of pushing back BioWare's new game 'Anthem' to next year.
