When we join him on his quest, he has already begun to question whether what he sees is even real. You can choose to sneak through the game without firing a single shot, or to kill everything in your path.
You can eat and sleep well, or resort to drugs to keep going. You can search for survivors, or try to escape the city alone. You can...
