He is right, the new Deus Ex's storyline and pacing is terrible.

Musk should try out The Last of Us, he'd probably like it.

Anyway, he's also apparently a big fan of the Half Life series. I mean, when a multi billionaire tweets back to a random egg account that mention the protagonist of a (dead) video game franchise to a completely unrelated tweet you know he's into it.

Yeah, I didn't understand either. The only thing I can think is that he mis-spoke and meant to say level design or something??

It's really odd being a member of both this and the YC community and seeing this get posted here.

For context, Sam Altman is the president of Y Combinator, a prominent tech incubator and investor in Silicon Valley. YC owns what may be called the NeoGAF of tech, Hacker News: news.ycombinator.com.

So this is kinda like if Evilore were to interview Iwata and then tech bros on HN were all like "what a terrible interview, Evilore says Google was awesome in the 90s! was he being serious or just a dick??"

If you think about it, the old Mario games did tell an interesting story about domestic abuse, Stockholm syndrome and how a woman can be caught in an extremely unhealthy situation between two people who just couldn't accept she wanted neither of them but also couldn't find a way out of it.

It's all about the sub context.

It's also an interesting character study about a mentally ill man (lizard?) of considerable means who consistently throws it all away to doggedly pursuit someone who is not interested in him.

His infatuation drives him and Peach, through inaction, does nothing to ensure he gets the help he clearly needs from trained professionals.

You have to ask yourself, why doesn't Peach take out a restraining order? Why doesn't she report him for kidnapping? Why is she happy to be rescued by the murderous and abusive Mario. Does she like drama? Does she like the attention? And what of Toad, Where does he fit into all of this?

Peach's secret lover? Her pimp? Drug dealer?

Elon Musk loved the original Deus Ex?

Can't tell if that's a really good thing to hear (I LOOOOOOOOOOOOVE Deus Ex), or really frightening because it might give him ideas about where we as a society are heading/will need to head in the future.
