PostSubject: Hero or Villain Of The Wasteland?   Thu Aug 06, 2015 8:09 am

I'm just wondering when you guys play Fallout ,or generally any game that effects your decisions in a moral way, are a hero that helps the weak and defenseless and refuse them payment because your a good person, more like a Guardian and Protector of the Wasteland trying to find the best possible solution for everyone. Are you a villain that kills anyone just for their stuff and desecrate their body just for the fun of it, a madmen that only cares about himself claiming to be the Ruler and Tyrant of The Wastes, a devil in the dust. Or Are you a survivor that does anything to ensure your own survival and those you deem friends or foes? Last but not least are you something else, not fitting in any of these three categories. Personally, I like to think myself as a Mercenary, the lives I take are just another contract. The team I work with are my brothers, those who are willing to pay the higher gear and caps will win my loyalty. The wasteland as no space for morals. What are you in these deadly wastelands?

Mostly i play as a good guy for guys that are good to me. Those who are not nice to me from the beggining are crushed. I helt those who need it. If there are 2 main factions and i have to pick, i pck the one that seems cooler to me. If there are no enemies, i will not kill anyone, but if there are some guy that hurt the good guys that i decidet to help, they will all die.

Oh I'm a definitely a bad guy in games especially in games like fallout/skyrim I kill everything that moves in fallout I atleast have a reason being the fact I need water food and ammo I hope in fallout 4 you can rob people at gun point instead of killing them for a bottle of water or a strange steak in there pants pocket ( speaking of which when you take a brahmin steak off a raiders corpse where was he keeping It they rarely have pockets)

Typically I can never really do a playthrough as a bad guy. I can never find joy in it... Unless the whole town tries to kill me, THEN they might get nuked and I wont feel to bad about it.

Its good to be bad. Most of the time I play as a bad guy, it is quite enjoyable to be the evil type in games like fallout and skyrim. I always do playthroughs as good and bad guys though, so honestly I usually end up do an equal amount of good and bad to that game world.

I always play the good guy in games with moral choices, and always prefer diplomacy over bullets for the most part. I've tried to do a play through as a villain, but I just can't do it. Don't got it in me be mean to people for no reason. I believe in giving second chances where possible, however if the refuse then I will kill them without remorse, for as far as I'm concerned in refusing mercy they have chosen death. So yep I always play the good guy, go around and help people and all that. Though when it comes to bad guys and people who are just plain evil, I'm less than friendly. So in the words of Sheriff Meyers, "Be good, or I'll shoot you dead."

I'm usually nice to people who deserve it. Like, I don't go into Freeside and shoot up the place but I'll go into a Powder Ganger's camp and kill everyone in sight. Sometimes I'll save the game and go on a murder rampage through the towns and cities but then I'll load my save so it never happened. I guess I'm a good character.

I don't even like killing coyotes...

I'm really in the the role play-side and I generally play as a flawed good guy, so I make some bad choices but overall I'm good. This is normally on my first play through.

I will do an evil playthrough as well. I found in FNV I prefererred the legion side of things, I enjoyed being "evil" more than I have in the past. It wasn't very good in FO3 or Skyrim (seems like none of the npcs notice you're this really evil fella). I think this is because obsidian are just better at writing stories than bethesda.

Anyway, yeah I tend to be the good guy at first but always do an evil run for the fun of it.

I play as both evil and good characters but my favourite is when I play as a neutral character trying to stay on his neutral path but will now and then do acts that can be considered kind or incredibly evil but towards the end my character I feel would be viewed as a horrible cold blooded killer or a kind samaritan helping those in need.

I usually play as a HERO Very Happy Creating a independent Vegas and pushing out the Legion and NCR.

But sometimes I just like to save the game, pull out and fatman and show the world what really lies beneath...

In Fallout 3 I'm always the hero because karma does matter and I don't being a bad person in that game and with New Vegas I'm not really either cause karma doesn't matter as much so I just play though and then see were it takes me. Air Guitar

Personally, I've only played bad person once in either FO3 or FO:NV. The one time I did play the bad guy in FO:NV it was tough all the way around. Constantly being chased after by assassin squads, wasn't able to go into various NCR or Legion controlled areas without be shot at. What really sucked was I was going through ammo rapidly. Many times I ran out of ammo and try to melee the attackers which didn't bode well for me especially if I didn't bring along a companion.

Other than that one evil bit, I play the hero. My absolute favorite is to get the Khans, BoS, Remnants and Boomers to fight along side NCR against the Legion. Sometimes with Securitron support, other times without. A great sense of doing good is much more satisfying than playing evil

Each time I play a game that involves moral choices, I try to make the decisions I'd make IRL. So generally not going around shooting everyone. Though as I start new playthroughs, I make the choices I wouldn't normally. Being 100% good when I might not have been before, being situationally evil when it benefits me, or just going around shooting nearly everyone I see.

I always tend to do the same, when i play a quest play through, i tend to end up being the good guy role, i like to keep as many people alive at the end game, even trying to avoid combat with speech checks in case i get to run into them again and get extra dialogue, then theres the role playing play through  i do, which always result in a raider type character, killing NCR, going into peoples homes and killing them then decapitating them with a knife, walking into a casino with my companions and just opening fire on every one inside, yeah... them things always seem to happen during my role playing sesh's closed eyes smile

My character so far is neutral-good. Sometimes, greed and money make him do evil stuff, but most of his actions result in good karma closed eyes smile
I didn't want him to be the perfect human, nor the devil. Sometimes, when I really want an NPC dead, I simply kill him, even though I have the option to be more pacifist TongueTril

Most of my characters are a mix between Good and Evil. Yeah, they're good people, they try to help others, and their intentions are good, same thing goes for their morals. But they're usually troubled, have had a rough life, so they're methods can be pretty "aggressive", let's say. Sort of like an anti-hero, the Jack Bauer kind of character.

Whenever I try to be a villain, I feel guilty and immediately regret my decision. Like I sided with the powder gangers once, and I felt dirty. I killed all the Powder Gangers, now I'm alone. Just moonshine and me drinking through my sorrow.

Never again shall I be evil.

I feel the same way sometimes when playing evil characters. Don't know how else to describe it aside from how you did, "dirty".

I don't even manage to get halfway through the game playing an evil character before deleting them.

I think being evil is something you do after saving the game, and then everything is off the table, its hard to just continuously play as an "evil" character, when it should be the opposite, moral choices in games are pretty much bullshit with this sort of thing, games need to be more morally grayer, make it hard to be a good person make the "evil" choices the easiest option, you are rewarded too much for being a "good" person in fallout, for example the only real way to become evil is just murder everyone you meet; I steal everything that isn't nailed down and i still have the highest karma rating.

"stalwart hero of the land, forgiven for robbing the world of everything, praise him", that's pretty much the impression i get.

I usually play as a good guy that tries to help everyone so they can have a better life, also so everybody likes me instead of wanting to see me dead because that would only lead to disappointment Wink
