The Game Theorists

SUBSCRIBE to Catch all the Theories! ►

Control is an experimental journey through not only a new world inhabited by beings called The Hiss, but through the mind of our protagonist. Jesse is the new director of an agency investigating the paranatural happenings in the world. She is chosen, not only for being in the right place at the moment, but because of her history with such events. Today, Austin is diving into the science that may explain exactly what happened to her and how she may have just created her own brother... Yes, you read that right.

So Dylan is just an alter of Jesse that was given a new form by a supernatural object?

"By bringing the subconscious to the conscious, you shine a light on it and it gets smaller." Oh hello Alan Wake. Also I think you've got it wrong. Dylan isn't Jesse's shadow. Jesse is Dylan's repressed anima, given the driver's seat for once. After all, he's the dreamer, she's a part of the dream. Control is a world where the rules of the psyche seem to apply to the tangible external world too - synchronicity. But it's to such a ridiculous degree that it's obviously just a projection from inside someone's head. Dylan is a representation of Sam Lake, the ideas guy behind Remedy games - hence the reference not just to Alan Wake but also to Max Payne, who literally wears Sam's face. When you play one of these games, you are exploring the inside of Sam's head. If you want to see The Shadow in a game though, check out the Ocarina of Time sequence from the Ice Cavern through to the Shadow Temple and pay attention to what Sheik says and the Water Temple mid-boss.

Install it on an SSD, the loading screens take a long time, and if you are like me you will be dieing a LOT! Maxed health, used "assist mode" to further reduce damage by 20% and there were several times I rage quit, mostly because I didn't want to wait another 1-3 minutes for a loading screen again. I somehow always died very, very fast.

QUESTION THEN: off-topic but could this be the reason of the belief in 'shadow work' in some pagan beliefs? to know the shadow, to work with your shadow, your hidden parts, to become a better person/practitioner and take care of yourself physically, mentally, and spiritually? could be another aspect they took into account with it being a supernatural game and saw the connection between science and supernatural belief?

Alan wake wrote the whole game in order to makes Jessie find him and save him from the darkness(that dark thing which is another object of power in that lake in alan wake game or last control dlc) so he can stop it before it spread around the world but it's too late in next game the whole world will enter the nightmare

I think the part you got wrong was Jessie was the shadow of Dylan. She was a creation from a lonly little boy looking for a big sister to protect him. This would help explain how Jessie got away, she wasn't on any of the records. Also it seams like the things that happen to them make a little more sense if the memory's were a boy. The things like violence, and being left alone playing in a big junk heap are more things associated with boys then girls. Then when the hiss was growing in power her own power would call her to try and save her real body trapped inside. That would also explain why she wasn't infected until she was in contact with Dylan for a time, he was infected but she wasn't enough of a real person to be infected. Also explains how she can quickly gain such control over the objects so fast. She is also an anomaly so resonating with the objects is much easier. I think that mite also explain why Anti likes her so much, he too in a way is just an anomaly and can see it in her.

Feels like a reach, specifically because we have no evidence in files or otherwise that the slide projector is capable of splitting personalities. It simply projects a doorway to other realities using slides, and without the slides it does nothing. I'm not saying for certain that the theory isn't possible but I don't see the slide projector being the culprit, unless it's the first OOP with a multiplicity of functions.
