One of the good things about having the best gaming laptop from Sager Notebook is the mobility it can provide.

If you’ve traveled outside of the US, you know that dealing with customs is the pits when you get to your destination. There’s the long lines, the unfriendly glares by security, and the multiple passport checks. But wouldn’t it be interesting if the roles were reversed?

In Papers, Please, you’re working in a Soviet-style dictatorship as a customs agent. You control who gets in, and you have to make sure that everyone has their passports and other travel documents ready. Only the right people can get in, though. Let anyone who’s not supposed to, and your family could suffer the consequences. It’s that kind of moral dilemma that makes things interesting.

Baldur’s Gate II
