Do you guys prefer it when games include parent figures? As someone who doesn’t have a good relationship with their parents, it can take me slightly out of immersion if I’m forced to interact a lot with a parent figure that I frankly don’t care much about. I know it’s not that much different from starting a game with pre-established friendships, but it is different enough to make me struggle with relating to my character. I much prefer it when games leave your relationships with your family members ambiguous.
However, I understand that oftentimes relationships with family members are crucial to the plot and can’t exactly be done away with.
Does anyone else feel this way, or is it just me?
