    All of the Chaos gods, except Khorne, embody a dichotomy of both bad and good. Slaanesh is the god of suffering but also of pleasure. Nurgle is the god of death but also of life. Tzeentch is the god of both dread and hope. The Imperium, conversely, doesn't have anything to offer except for hopelessness, pain, and death. The necrons and Eldar offer nothing but hopelessness and death, and the orks have nothing to offer but death. Only Chaos is of any good to anyone, and they are the galaxy's last, best hope against the evil of the Imperium.
    Similar take, but in regard to a different game series: In Fallout New Vegas, the Powder Gang, Fiends, Vipers, and Jackals are significantly better people than the Legion. While the game (and some of the players) occasionally tries to portray gangs, raiders, and bandits as worse than the Legion, the fact of the matter is that Vault 3, Vault 19, and the overthrown correctional facility aren't decorated wall to wall with torture victims the way most Legion encampments are. The closest thing any of the raider factions has to that is the leg on a meathook outside vault 3.

    Inconsequential hot take: I should try out a Fallout game sometime.
