Other (objects, etc.) theme

A non-classic narrative concept and key to the plot of the game. It is the conflict that the protagonist of the game must face.


Alternate name: Machine versus Machine

The first video game about Invention versus Invention conflict was released in 2002.

The Terminator series has great examples of different conflicts. Man Verses Machine is obvious from the first movie. But later material added self-aware machines that battled their own kind and their own nature. Thus, Machine vs Machine and Machine vs Self.
