I know why it is so popular. In reality everyone who plays it knows it's a shitty game. People already know who the imposters are after the first 2 rounds... because it is a boring game. It is popular because it gives people an excuse to yell at each other for no reason! Everybody craves social connection because everyone is lonely.
yes and no
i think the fact that a game gives you the reality which you betray your friends to win, what doesnt make you feel guilty since its a game, and in the end you are proud of yourself for being able to lie
