  1. Yea, I get what you mean about non-literal writing though. I like vague and mysterious writing, too. It can feel more meaningful and make you imagine things.

  4. Gaming Point- Thanks!   A lot of games do simplify characters' psychology and have really literal dialogue. I think it's part of the trend towards simplification and stylization. I have mixed feelings about that, since I don't like how the goal for many Western developers is trying to recreate reality through a game, but I also think that games might benefit from better dialogue and characterization sometimes.   And I'm just not a fan of dialogue and characters in games that are "SO deep" and "realistic," especially when that is the main selling point of a game. For me, the most powerful characters that I love and identify have been ones that are silent or with limited dialogue, so I have come to believe that game characters shouldn't be treated like characters in movies or books with literally realistic lines and personalities.   Who knows... it is still an emerging field and growing art! Thanks for reading, and I'm glad it connected with you.
