This SOMA gameplay trailer will have you questioning existence


The French philosopher René Descartes quite famously said "Cogito ergo sum" or in English, “I think, therefore I am.” In the most simple of sense, this means that because you are conscience of the fact that you are thinking – you exist. When this phrase appeared at the end of the newest gameplay trailer for SOMA, this simplicity and horror of this phrase kicks in.

I want to talk about it but I don’t want to ruin it! We’re talking man and machine here, ghost in the shell, what is the definition of life! Beautiful and disturbing theories and philosophies! I love it. I want to know more! I want to watch more. AH!

Watch the video below and make your own conclusions. If you somehow missed the previous non-gameplay trailers, catch up on those as well – they are so good!  The March 2015 release date hurts my soul.
