* {{Anvilicious}}: You could see the game as a rather obvious allegory of 9/11 and the WarOnTerror.
** SomeAnvilsNeedToBeDropped: Yet, at the same time, it brings to mind recent developments relating to internet security and privacy, and how privacy shouldn't be infringed on.
* {{Disposable Woman}}: This could apply to [[spoiler: Anna.]] It's somewhat troubling that [[spoiler: she is the only relevant female character in the game and yet also the only character who canonically ''has to'' die.]]
** What makes it worse is that [[spoiler: besides Ed, Anna has the most drive to solve her uncle's murder so it feels like a {{Shoot the Shaggy Dog}} story when she is killed.]]
