In Response To: Re: I'd like to be hopeful... (davidfuchs)

: The idea seems to be to put a "regular Joe" next to the Chief. I
: agree if he just whines about home constantly, it'll be grating (really he
: should have known when he woke up Chief this was gonna' happen, no buyer's
: remorse) but I doubt that's going to be a static relationship and dynamic
: throughout.

Why do they think that's a good idea? (Regular Joe)

Where is the interest? Let me guess... They want to explain to me that rjs would have difficulty coping with extraordinary circumstances and that real heroism is ordinary people overcoming their fears, blah, blah, etc, etc.

That trope has been done to death.

All tropes have been done to death but some tropes are more interesting and fun.

I play games to have fun, unwind, have a bit of a challenge. I don't play them to hear clichÚd aphorisms and have the obvious "revealed" to me.
