A Conversation, Video Essay on all the personal, cultural, and philosophy influences that inspired my love for Warframe's story. Including Plato's Republic, #Confucianism, Daoism, my experience with Autism, and much more.

Many in the comments have pointed out that my interpretation of TMITW can't be true, because of Entrati encountering it long before the Zarimen 10-0 accident. I'm not going to argue with this, it is probably true. However, this isn't clear in the Chains of Harrow quest. As I said at the start, I am being honest with my experience of the story and what it meant to me. The new facts came out years later and were not a part of that experience. Thanks for understanding!
Thank you for watching, my friends! If you found something interesting in this video, be sure to let me know in the comments! All are welcome! NOTES: All of the footage was recorded on a PS4 Pro, but an issue with its DVR function causes a few second to drop out very rarely. Usually this only happens during gameplay, but also happens during spoken storylines. There is really no good way to avoid this, so thank you for understanding.
