But then we have The User, a malevolent god in the sky of Mainframe who continues to download and lose games, placing the lives of the little people inside his or her computer. And if The User happens to win a game, whatever sector in which the gamecube landed, well, guess what: it's destroyed, and all its inhabitants are turned into little sluggy nulls.
I guess my main beef with The User is that the concept isn't really explored as deeply as the viruses and the other bad guys throughout the series. Sure, the writers touched upon it a few times in the show's run, but it always had this sort of religious bent to it, like they were ambivalent, clueless pleasure seekers and destructive creators. Which, fine, but that just seems way too easy a way to discuss a series' mythos. I know it's a kids' show, but if Avatar and The Legend of Korra can establish a mythology that ties in with the universe well, I know that Mainframe Entertainment can do the same.
