    Earpiece Conversation

    Concept »

    A moment in a game where the main character walks slowly or stands/kneels still with their finger in their ear, hearing mission details.

    Short summary describing this concept.

    No recent wiki edits to this page.


    Usually occurs when the character is talking over a com-link or radio using an earpiece and are receiving instructions or intel for a mission. The character usually has a weapon in one hand and their other hand to their ear. Usually following the character touching his earpiece, BIG EXPLOSIONS happen or a lot of enemies engage the player in battle.

    This is also a basis for the "Tough Guy" stereotype.

    This concept largely originates from the codec conversations in the Metal Gear series. G.I. Joe: The Rise Of Cobra, an otherwise unremarkable game, spiced up the earversation recipe a little, when certain characters are shown using their left hand to cross their chest and use the earpiece in their right ear.
