    These are just some of my thoughts on what was happening throughout the course of this great game. If you have any dissent or extra thoughts to offer along with my analysis, please leave them in the comment section below!

    Spec Ops: The Line is heavily influenced by a pre-existing classic novella titled “Heart of Darkness”, which is arguably the most analyzed piece of literature in history. I decided that what I would do is analyze Heart of Darkness and its two most popular adaptations: Apocalypse Now and, of course, Spec Ops: The Line. However, while I am analyzing the individual stories in each of the three cases, I am moreso analyzing the quote-unquote “Heart of Darkness” as a motif; as something that actually exists. In my opinion, the Heart of Darkness manifests in real life, as well as in these three forms of fiction... as a location, a thing to obtain, and a state of mind. It might be useful to watch my previous video where I analyze the Heart of Darkness novella, so you can have some useful context for this video, but that isn’t necessary.
