Genshin Impact is a dangerous game with serious issues, conflicting identities, and very predatory game mechanics. On one end, it's a very beautiful open world RPG with interesting - albeit a bit simple - action based combat, high budget graphics, absolutely amazing music, everything you'd expect from a top tier game... and at the same time it's also a bottom of the barrel
