Common Traits, Trends and Tropes In Video Games

Amnesia 

More often than not, amnesia is used as some sort of plot device where the main character or the love interest finds who or what they are.   Typically it’s because the hero was the bad guy all along, they are apart of some super race with unspeakable power, wanted to forget the past or it’s because the writers didn’t have anything else better to write as a back story. It’s been used in multiple games to varying degrees of success and as long as there’s video games in this world, there will always be one character forgetting their back story.
