Detroit Become Human


Caden Massey

Hi! My name is C-Mass. I’m the writer sent by The Pathfinder.
Anyone who has played Detroit Become Human has probably heard that quote or some variation of it.
You probably remember the quote more like, “Hi! My name is Connor. I’m the android sent by Cyberlife.” If you haven’t played Detroit Become Human, I will give you a basic rundown.
The year is 2038. You control three different characters named Kara, Connor, and Markus.
The main twist is that all the characters you play as are actually androids that can’t feel emotions… or so the humans thought. Throughout the game, your software becomes increasingly unstable, which for one reason or other causes androids to begin “feeling.”
This eventually evolves into a fullscale revolution in Detroit in an effort to secure rights for android people.
Connor is an investigator in these “deviant” androids. He works to discover why androids are becoming human and what is causing it. He more or less is working against his own people.
Also, if you have time, go on YouTube and look up “28 STAB WOUNDS.” You won’t regret it.
Kara is a maid android that turns on her owner who is abusive. The man that owns her starts beating his child which causes Kara to feel emotions and intervene.
Markus is a privileged android that is discovering himself when an unfortunate series of events sends him to a landfill and a fortunate series of events has him act as the leader of the android rights movement.
The game itself is honestly just beautiful. The characters, the visuals, the story, the controls, everything is just beautiful. There is no better word to describe it.
Some people might find a problem with the way the characters are rendered and say it looks oddly animated, but I think they don’t appreciate the artist’s work. It is not easy to make something like Detroit Become Human.
The plot of the game is likewise touching. In the beginning, you think of these characters as nothing but robots, but as they develop human emotions, you start to connect with them and see that they are in most scenarios more human than the people around them.
The characters are treated as less than human and in all but name, animals. It actually hurts to see these newly reborn people be discriminated against and killed for no reason other than wanting rights.
The game is heavily based on the
civil rights movement here in America. There are plenty of references
to ideologies of the movement, slavery, discrimination, and assassinations on leaders.
It is a really good way to have people reexperience their history and really makes you think about our current events from a different perspective, which is very refreshing Epic Games to see.
The music is also very good. I’m not much of a music appreciator, but even I can tell that a lot of work went into this soundtrack. The musical score has even won some big awards, and I think that is pretty cool.
I strongly recommend Detroit Become Human for anyone who likes story-driven games. If you don’t, I would strongly recommend this
game, but you may be disappointed.
If you want to pick up this game, you can only get it for PC and PlayStation. Sorry Xbox gang. It is only about $20, and I promise it will be the best $20 you ever spent. Overall, I rate Detroit Become Human 9 Cyberlife androids
out of 10.
