Like a man casting a shadow, the shadow of arbitrary, pointless oblivion is meaning. You can't just decide something is meaningful - it's only ever defined in the contrast to pointless oblivion.
I was watching a TV program and it's characters didn't grip me, because they were 'fat', they just were entirely insulated from any pointless death. So their characterisations seem 'fat', obese with ivory tower safety.
I think the same goes for computer games. Just alot of fat characters out there.
