Quotes: Video Game Cruelty Punishment
"Well, gee. I feel a little guilty now."

"The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening featured a mechanic that made it incredibly easy to shoplift. You could walk into item shops, pick up whatever you wanted and run out without paying a single rupee (this same mechanic is featured heavily in real life).

To discourage players from stealing (despite giving them the ability to do so in the first place), the game would first scold you. Then, your name would suddenly change from 'PUSSYHAMMER' to 'THIEF'."
