134/365 – Meditation Games #134 – Friends At The End

The conflict between comrades or best of friends is an emotional trope that is used quite often in games. In fact a lot of times it’s been used so often and perhaps so blatantly that after a while it becomes a bit predictable, or even slightly unoriginal. For games, I think part of why it gets this stale is because there’s an idea that exploring the idea of friend betrayal followed by conflict and emotional battling has been done from almost every different angle when it comes to trying to get at it. It leads to a sort of paint by numbers idea when it comes to this stuff and is pretty repetitive.
