[ANOTHER SPOILER WARNING NOW FOR SPEC OPS: THE LINE. We’ll be dealing with the game’s themes and philosophy, which will require detailed discussions of what happens in the game. I urge again that you play Spec Ops: The Line.]
For weeks after I finished playing Spec Ops: The Line, I would scribble down snippets of thoughts about the game that I would explore at a later date. Maybe it’s because I couldn’t complete the game on “FUBAR,” which prevented me from claiming 100% completion and mentally archiving the game. Let’s take a moment to examine some of my takeaways from the game, some parts of the game where execution didn’t meet intent, and the concepts explored in the game that I’d like to see explored further.
