Life lessons are a common sort of theme in games. Some of them are subtle, not really obvious, and only present themselves through the journey of the game. Others are extremely direct and in-your-face about what they are seeking to teach you or show you. The depth of the lesson can also be dependent on where and how it’s presented in the game. For RPGs, for example, the plot is a big mover and shaker as far as trying to show you something about life, while action and adventure games may rely on the journey or quest itself to show you what message they’re trying to send.
