If the speed of light is faster then the speed of sound, is that why people always appear bright until they speak? o_O
Regarding Train, while trying not to spoil it: it's a noble goal to create games with a message, but because of the structure of the experience Train's message is actually a dangerous fudge. The fact that what the players are actually doing in the context of the game is not revealed until the end seems to imply that the people who actually performed the acts being simulated were similarly in the dark and were similarly only obeying rules and dictates laid out by a trusted authority, an excuse famously summarized in the phrase "we were only following orders." Historical evidence points to a darker truth: that they were knowing and willing participants, and that in the right circumstances any of us might do the same. As far as I know, the game that illuminates that uncomfortable truth has yet to be made; Train isn't it.
