This video will analyze the psychological theme of addiction as it appears in Agent Hollis Forsythe’s mind I Psychonauts 2. Doublefine have crafted a character and a level that is loaded with depth, metaphors and symbolism for understanding the mind of a gambling addict. Join me as I explore it to a pretty nauseating degree!

If you liked this analysis… get help. But maybe also consider sticking around for part 2!

Includes footage from Psychonauts, Psychonauts 2, and Psychonauts by Double Fine Productions.

Psychonauts 2 was written by Tim Schafer, and co-directed by Tim Schafer and Zak McClendon. Psychonauts 2 OST by Peter McConnell.
