There are some giveaways, of course. They spit out canned lines—"Good weather today, huh?"—and flock to normie trends (are Ugg boots still a thing?) and, for the most part, share the same uncritical worldview.

They're just NPCs in the game of life" or, in reference to economic experts widely condemning tariffs, "here we are with one of the best economies in US history. Only brainwashed NPCs believe what 'experts' say when those claims are contradicted by reality!."
