Here I lie…

“Here I lie, but don’t you cry, for one day too, you will die.” – Igor’s grave, Raid: World War 2

This is poetic and nice in its own way. Comforting someone at a loss by making them worry about their own mortality. Everyone dies, should we be sad when someone else dies? It’s a grim subject but one worth thinking about.

Raid: World War 2 is a game about small operations in the second world war so this quote hits harder as you think about the soldiers that would have almost definitely died. Should we cry for them if not the unknown Igor? Should we be emotional for anyone whose fate we will share? The grave was just a piece of scenery so easily missed in game but it is impactful if you find it.
