There was a really interesting paper presented by Doris Rusch at the DiGRA Conference this week. It involved God of War and how it related to the human condition (our emotional palettes; put simply) through fictional alignment - a "Mechanisms of the Soul".
It looks like an epic title - I really need to find the time to play it. The HL series is also very awesome!
