** For Answer: What do we do about are you fighting for? [[PunchClockHero A paycheck?]] [[ForGreatJustice Freedom and justice?]] [[WellIntentionedExtremist Humanity's survival?]] [[KillEmAll Or just]] [[ForTheEvulz because you can?]] The game lets you [[TitleDrop answer]] any of the above.[[labelnote:*]](Though by the time you hear the question [[PermanentlyMissableContent it's a little late to pick "freedom and justice,"]] and even if you did, that path [[DoomedMoralVictor gets cut short anyway.]])[[/labelnote]]
*** More specifically: Is it worth [[ColdEquation sacrificing potentially millions of people]] so that the survivors have a chance to escape the Earth's [[GaiasLament
environmental destruction of Earth, collapse?]] Or is momentary peace and how do we save tranquility worth dooming humanity ([[KillEmAll Or]] [[MurderIsTheBestSolution do we]])?to a slow death? Or does humanity even [[KillEmAll deserve to live at all]] at this point?

No, not, "[[DrivingStick What's this third pedal do?]]" or "WhoIsDriving", a Driving Question is when a core element of the plot is a mystery. The most common variation would be a detective murder mystery (where the question is most often "{{Whodunnit}}?"), but also very popular in NoughtiesDramaSeries, {{Jigsaw Puzzle Plot}}s and SurvivalHorror. In many cases the question is equivalent to, "What the hell is going on and why?" which taken far enough makes for an OntologicalMystery.
