So the new title is '5 behaviours that Video Games Reward and Reality says are Crazy', which means this is the first time the revised title actually makes more sense.

Only reason I read it was that the original caption looked like the Lich King from Wow. Agree with you about the title change though.

I don't know what they're talking about. All those behaviours seem perfectly normal and sane to me.

"Hmm, Joe doesn't like that I stole his stapler. Maybe if I give him 5 of the Pencil resource and the secret technology of Alt+Tab his mood will change from Annoyed to Cautious."

That may have worked in the past, but the Pencil resource is now considered a luxury and technology trading no longer exists, and since Joe is an artificial intelligence (probably) his reaction to your proposal will be erratic at best! He'll probably also want 4 of your Eraser resource as well as your coffee resource/open borders with your drawer (but not you with his) for 25 turns! If you refuse that (and obviously you will), he'll get pissy and publicly denounce you! There's no winning!

Spoiler: show
Obviously your only choice is to kill him.

See. Now this is why I treat video games just like real life. Either I kill you or ignore you completely.
