    How often do you play evil?

    Games like Fable often allow you to either be good or evil as part of your in-game freedom. What do you usually choose?

    For me, it really depends on the game as well as how seriously I take the inhabitants. For example, in Infamous I went with Good whereas in BioShock I was mixed. At times I saved them, other times, absorbed.

    So generally, it's a mixed bag.

    RE: How often do you play evil?

    Whatever the game I always play a good character. Even though its not real I still feel absolutely terrible being the bad guy. Even if they're achievements for being an evil character. I'm just gonna have to pass them up.

    For me this applies to:

    Fable II
    Fallout 3
    Skyrim
    Oblivion

    RE: How often do you play evil?

    Pretty much never. I wouldn't say I'd feel terrible being the bad guy, but I just tend to go with whatever I'd do in real life, and that tends to be mostly good, however, I always steal things in these games, as it is an easy way to build up currency.

    We're talking about videogames though.

    Anyway, can't say it's often, largely because the majority of games that I play don't really give me the choice of being good/bad. The most obvious example of having some sort of choice though (in my case) would be anything in the C&C franchise, in which I more often than not play as the 'good guys' (GDI or Allies, or in the case of Generals, USA/China) as far as campaigns go. They tend to get better/more versatile units overall, which is an obvious reason to choose them. In skirmishes/multiplayer for these games though, there is no such thing as good/evil, so I don't care what 'side' I take.

    As a general rule of thumb though for other games (such as BioShock), I base my decision on whatever benefits me the most there and then. It's only a game, so **** having a 'virtual conscience'!

    Lmao. I think the point was that video games don't have the complexity that our own life decisions do. That's practically impossible, even in games like Skyrim. Video games can be very immersive, but the whole karma system isn't supposed to be as realistic as real-life.

    Anyway, I'm usually the good guy. I'll save those who are in danger and generally become the local hero, although that doesn't stop me from stealing once in a while if I can get away with it. However, I did say usually. When a citizen double-crosses me I'll occasionally go on a rampage.

    In the context of many videogames, there's usually a very clear, perfectly defined difference between good/evil sides and actions. More often than not because, one way or another, that's what the manual tells us. You can't argue with this. So don't even try.
