Hades speaks to me on a spiritual level
why does tumblr always relate to the satan of every fandom
Because it’s easier to identify with a flawed character then some kind of ultra human the hero normally is portrayed as.
Possibly also because Satan figures in media typically live in dark holes in the ground, spend most of their time laughing at others’ misfortunes, and communicate primarily by means of passive-aggressive snark.
That last comment
and they’re often portrayed as really camp
The difference with a single player game is that in the same way you lose yourself in a good novel, you can lose yourself in a single player story. You see it in all these games, where you can fill your house with turnips or decorate your armor with a dragon skull. It lets you go inside for a little while and, well, not hermit up necessarily, but be in another place and time for a while. It is escapism and you can’t really have that when ‘BonerLord247’ goes running past you in the middle of a raid.
