Just wanted to ask if we have this trope or anything similar to it. In this column, Yahtzee examined a concept called the "conflict triangle", which describes the three ways that physical conflict can be resolved in video games. They are:

  • Evasion: enemy attacking, player not attacking
  • Stealth: enemy not attacking, player attacking
  • Direct combat: enemy attacking, player attacking

I'm not doing a full YKTTW just for the minute, I just wanted to see if we have anything like this and, if not, if the community thinks it might be tropeable. Any feedback would be great.
