There are so very few CPRG's that allow for the playing of truely evil characters, though. Even in DD you end up doing the good thing, even if you killed everyone you met. You end up saving the world, instead of having like the option to become the new evil. All those games have limited story lines from necessity ( I mean, there is only so much programming a game can have) and usually they involve saving the world from some impending doom. Well, some of us want to be that doom, not stop it. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/delight.gif" alt="" />
well, considering the point of most games is to save something, either the world, or the princess it's hard to make a game so that you can take the evil road, when the whole point of the game is to do a good deed.
you need an open ended game like morrowind (from my experience it's open ended).
you can actually turn NWN into that kind of game simply by creating a mod where instead of saving the princess from the evil guy who is forcing her to marry him, thus making him king the objective is to kidnap the princess and force her to marry you, all while doing various other things such as fight off the obnoxious knights trying to save her so *they* can have her hand in marriage.
and to be honest, i'm quite surprised that you, of all people, failed to mention the great games that are dungeon keeper and dungeon keeper II. after all, you are the one who got me to get those games <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />
I started a rant on another games forum over a year ago about this, seeing what people thought of the subject. Maybe it is time to do it again. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/biggrin.gif" alt="" />
i remember that rant too. didn't turn out so well, i remember correctly.
