This is the best bit in Detroit: Become Human

Getting animated about robots

I’ve been playng Detroit: Become Human and I’m sorry. It was this month's PlayStation Plus freebie. It’s a stupid game about stupid people. It is about robots who like to argue. A ludomoronic “experience” where you can psycho-read the script full minutes before the dialogue is delivered, because you have seen a thousand television shows as hackneyed as this but none which have managed to deliver their clichés in full 3D choice-o-vision.

But listen, it has one amazing bit. An absolute joy that I liked so much I repeated it over and over again. A wonderful moment that should be celebrated even if the rest of the game is a heap of old banana skins.
