    Just listened. A few comments.

    First, I wanted to mirror the comment about movie genres. As you’ll recall from literature, there are three types of conflict: man vs. man, man vs. nature, and man vs. himself. So I think that Matt’s interpretation of Red Dead Redemption was interesting since games generally involve the first two conflicts.

    Second, one sympathetic villain that stood out to me was the main villain from Dragon Quest IX. No spoilers, but I kept feeling SO sorry for him, and I just wanted to explain that it was all a big misunderstanding. 

    Third, Revolver Ocelot. You guys didn’t know what an ocelot was or something? It’s a type of big cat. Like a leopard, but smaller.
