You've hurt her feelings. You're a terrible person.

 

Tara Strong FTW.

I like mad's Avatar too, though I thought it might've been from the Transistor game somewhere.

Kinda annoyed that the white is from an elbow/glove, not like just a white bubble placed there for aesthetic reasons.

Ugh, couldn't get into it. I hate when games just assume I like the characters at the start with no background.

I like stories that dump you in with no background and start using words that you have to figure out as you go along.  Think Dune, Clockwork Orange, Anathem, that sort of thing.  Combine that with good music and good art and it's a winner in my book...

Transistor is awesome!

Perhaps not that much headphone related but considering the profile pic discussion, close enough. Does anybody here know of a place that sells unsold gaming/audio/video stuff? There has to be a warehouse, somewhere in this world filled with still good gear that for some reason was not sold.

"In medias res" (in the middle of things) would be the literary term. I love it as a plot device (when it's done right, at least). Critical backstory turns into puzzle pieces that unravel the mystery for the audience. It creates dissonance between the subjective and objective reality. What do the character's actions mean? She just killed a guy... why? Is this person good? Bad? It all becomes a mystery to unravel.

Another good example (and relevant to the gaming thread!) would be this internet short based on the game Portal:

Who is this woman? Why is she here? What are the notches on the wall? Why hasn't she escaped? By sticking the viewer in the middle, you can allow the backstory and main story unfold together.
