You are a Heartless Jerk in Pokemon
Pokemon is one of the games that and survived through generations. It is one of the timeless games in the gaming industry that still get to live to the now.

You kicked his butt. His grandfather reprimanded him for his failure while you get the praise from the Professor. What’s worse, his grandfather is all that he has left after you took his Raticate away. Apparently, you also took his grandfather away from him too.
No Sunshine and Rainbows in Animal Crossing
Looks can be deceiving. Just because a game is made up of friendly, happy, and cute animals doesn’t mean that it’s all cupcakes and rainbows. You never know that this sweet and colorful game hides a deep and dark secret. The game actually imprisons the player in the “camp” and is being forced to slave away in order to pay off the things that were forced down your throat.
Not only that, it also shows cannibalism, deception, manipulation, and misdirection. Furthermore, Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp got weird and creepy to the next level by imprisoning their villagers like it’s a fun thing to do. These kinds of things are not what you would expect to the all smiles and friendly animals in a colorful world of Animal Crossing.
Mario is Actually A Villain

However, just like in the game Braid, the game lets you think that you are the hero when you are actually the villain in the end. Unfortunately, in Mario, they are just theories. Very awesome game theories, though. One theory is that Mario is actually a bad guy.
You are actually invading the territory of the peaceful and defenseless mushroom people of the world. You might wonder why they are falling into their deaths when it comes to gaping holes in their world. Stupidity, maybe? However, did you even think that they are just clueless to defend their home that they offer themselves as a means to defend their home in the only manner they knew how? Right.
