    Default In games do you go for the good or evil path (If both which do you go for first)?

    Like with Dragon Age, Mass effect and many other games of that sort do you tend to go for the nice or nasty option and why?. I myself tend to go for the good option as i just feel dirty if i choose the bad option even though i wish i could be that badass evil guy who doesnt give a shit about what others think. Pehaps there is a link between game morality and typology.

    i am most often as poilte to npc's as possible... i work for free if i think that they can't afford to pay... but as soon as the job is done (or perhaps before) i am rummaging through their house (and/or pockets) for anything that i can stuff into my inventory... and if someone is too rude, i take off the kid gloves (and may even kill them out of hand if they seem to be of no use)... in games with an alignment system, my dialogue options push me towards good, but if theft has an effect i turn out to be neutral... the npc's seem to understand that i need literally everything i can take to defend them as best i can... after all, everything disappears when i arrive, and they generally thank me after each encounter...

    Usually the good one, too. I don't want to see people suffer, not even in a video game. Especially not if I'm responsible. Soooo I usually do what I can to help, even if I'm annoyed by the characters themselves or by what they want. Often the evil option does sound more lucrative and can be pretty fun, too, but I just can't stop my conscience from speaking up

    You should play "Beholder". Or "This war of mine". Or both.

    In games with factions I typically go 'good faction' but make morally questionable decisions. In Star Wars for example I might pick a Jedi but make 'dark side' decisions.

    My character's decisions are 'neutral' and tend to be Machiavellian.

    Usually good, sometimes bad. Depends.

    I don't play games, I just watch others play them, however, I think I would go for evil, I find evil to be the most interesting..

    Depends on my mood... more often I pick good but at times I love being villainous.

    I'd go evil if games didn't cheat. Do a favor for a guy and he hands you a sick item, but kill him in cold blood and it's nowhere to be found. Something is off here.

    I don't like to know which is good/evil. I just make the choices I would normally make and go with whatever I get. I think doing anything else sort of defeats the purpose " If you were in this situation what choices would you make and what does that mean to you as a person."

    If it gets me nowhere, then I will go back and look.

    What i do like is games that dont have a morality meter but something that pushes you to make choices based on your own judgement whether it be logical or moral judgement without an external source to make you lean more one or the other.
