Once again, I'm not strictly following the prompt but using it as inspiration to shine light on my experience of anti-Asian behaviour due to the pandemic. I know that the metaphor is flawed as in the actual game, it's the taggers "passing the blame" instead of the other 'clean' players. Regardless, the way a person is dehumanised to a mere 'tagger' and thus 'spreader' because society imposed that label on them resonates too strongly to the increased discrimination against Asians in the pandemic.
I hope that everyone is staying safe whilst having a happy lunar new year xx
