Common Traits, Trends and Tropes In Video Games

REVENGE: Revenge seems to be one of the most common character motivations in video game history. Characters go on this for multiple reasons, but death of the loved one seems to be the most common. The biggest poster boy for vengeance is Kratos, taking down the majority of the Greek Pantheon for what they made him do to his wife and child.  While a common motivation, revenge appears to be one of the best motivations for not only the character but the players to get behind what their character is doing.
