What I never understood, was, how can someone want to play "evil style" ? <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif" alt="" />

But I accept that everyone should be allowed to do like he/she wishes (at least in RPG games).


I always play good characters. It is easier for me to do so since it comes naturally. I really believe that people want to help other people. If they hear someone calling for help, they will try to help.

But sometimes ... <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/biggrin.gif" alt="" />

In the controled environment of a game it is fun to be bad. But few games will allow one to do so. I don't even mean like chaotic evil that might kill someone just for looking at them. I mean like the lawful evil types that are out for themselves. They might not help you unless you pay them, and sometimes not even then. Even that type of self-absorbed evil isn't very playable since the games are slanted towards good. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />


I could have been very happy not knowing that. "Game over, man! Game over!"

i agree. i enjoy being bad sometimes in a video game because it is, after a ll, a game and non one really gets hurt.

tka The Sims game for example. i used to do experiments with fireplaces in tiony rooms and various people. plus i once did a story line where my guy constantly married for money and the wife mysteriously drowned the next day.

in real life however, i can't imagine myself being anything other than a goody goody. just like i can't imagine you being anything other than a goody goody in real life.

I always play Chaotic Good... seems to me more like how I am... though sometimes I tend towards the Lawful part, or like Lawful neutral

Lawful Neutral is always my favorite...

I like the idea of doing whats right no matter who it upsets.

I also like playing "chaotic good" - that's what I'm most of the time in Real Life ! <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/biggrin.gif" alt="" />

I prefer Chaotic Neutral, myself. Cares about nothing, adapts as needed, doesn't give a damn about either good or evil, unpredictable.

But harder to roleplay than it sounds, though.

Try Ice Wind Dale II , You'll like it if you liked BG1 & 2 should <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/silly.gif" alt="" />also get the Expansion BG2 Throne of Baal the final conflict... I'm Sad to see it end.. I've played it all the way thru like 20 times. the last time was in insane mode. my character is maxed out.oh well. Maybe they'll resurrect someone and have a BG 3 Return to the Throne of Baal.. we can only dream.

Have fun. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/mage.gif" alt="" />

Neverwinter nights wasn't for me... after all these talks about beautiful 3d graphics and many other features, NWN was really dissapointing game to me after baldur's gate 2. Graphics too repetitive, battles too easy, it reminded Diablo at some points.
Divine Divinity on other hand is way more interesting, just it got REALLY boring after becoming divine one, i was working to fininsh that game. Although there were many quests that made me laugh, so overall it was ok, i just missed some company besides me, that was cheering me most of the time in baldur's gate 2. But NWN doesn't give you companions either, just 1 mercenary, that isn't interested in advewnturing, it seems, just doing his/her job.
So DD is better, but baldur's gate 2 is still something to reach for both these games, DD should get a bit more complicated fighting system, hit, hit, kill, be it spell, arrow or sword is still the same.

Lar soon saw that this was exactly for many people the "Point of Borance" . <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/winkwink.gif" alt="" />
