Reality is subjective.
It can be modified,
and lied to.
It can be instructed, obstructed, omitted.
But none of them can be truly, universally false for everybody. Perspectives can't be blatant lies at their core to someone believing them, once they or something else managed to communicate them to you.
So what if they're a video game character? Aren't our egos all jealous that all of them had a satisfying ending to their journey and their story, while ours becomes more and more chaotic as you zoom out?
Reality is a direct product of order and harmony.
Order just also happens to be what you get when you zoom in enough in certain threads of the web of chaos.
