Well, you would, but just before going downstairs, you encounter the Mirror of Souls.

M.O.M. Interface Active:

"Your quest ends here, Button."

"Who... who are you?"

"I am the darkness that lurks in your soul.
The realization that you might be a nerd.
The creeping doubt that you're not hardcore."

"N-no! I am hardcore!
Mom said so!"

"She speaks in lies.
She pretended she'd forgotten your birthday.
But she actually hadn't."

"That's... I can't deny that.
But I beat Super Pony 64 in one day!"

"On easy."

"But... I ceaselessly dedicate myself to video games,
and play them every waking moment!"

"Yes, but...
Perhaps the same could be
said of all religions."
