Put things in perspective for me.
After finishing this game, I cried.
Growing up, I never really had that good of a relationship with my mother, and this game finally made me see things her way.
The forest, in a way, is an allegory for the real world. As the mother, you watch your child grow and eventually prepare himself for these dangers. However, your purest intetion is to make sure that your child is safe, if he can't fend for himself, and he dies while trying to, you have failed in your mission.
See, I never truly understood how this felt until playing this game. Growing up, I thought my mom was just being a bit of a control freak. Now, I see that she was only trying to keep me safe.
This game made me realize how easy my mother has been on me in recent years, and how little credit I've given her for it.
Mr. Breed, I thank you for making me realize what I have been oblivious to for the past 16 years of my life.
Keep up the great work, my friend.
