A thought: Videogames are revisionist histories. There was never any justification to kill anyone. The natives you slaughtered were seen through the lens of xenophobia and colonialism. Everything was much grimmer, much darker. Each videogame is a romanticized portrayal, don’t believe any lies.
A thought: HP potions are red because they’re blood, which means the heroes are actually vampires, which explains not only the fact that they’re stronger than everyone else but why villagers are too afraid to chase them out when the heroes invade their house in the middle of the night and steal their gold. More revisionism.
