I love playing games with choices. More spicifically, I like games where you can chose whether your character will play the role of good or evil, hero or villian, paragon or renegade, hell even, even.... even.... ummm, well I can't think of anymore, but that's not the point! The point is choices, and choices are everywhere, which leads me to this experiment I have been planning and will be doing over the next while.
When I play games with choices, I always have a hard time being bad, I always find myself being good, doing good deeds, doing what was asked of me. I have yet to figure out why, maybe it's because I get to attached to the character and I want them to be good, maybe it's because i name all my characters after me, make them look like my and because I'm not generally considered a bad person, I make good choices.
I think every game I've played I have made the good choices (expect for Bioshock, although I had to really think about what I was doing before I chose to harvest the little sisters, I always wanted to save them)
Now, here is where my experiment comes in.
I just recently downloaded Fable off XBL. I have heard good things about it, and I never got a chance to play it so I decided to give it a shot. I also wany to get a feel for the game before Fable 2.
I play to play though the game, being one bad mother--- Shut Your mouth!
Well then, like I said i plan to be basically, well bad. I want to see how I will enjoy the game, how I react, how I react in real life, if i get attached to the character, etc., etc.
I will be posting my result once I'm finished the game (althought that may be awhile because of GTAIV)
But I have already started this little experment without you guys! I started the game, i didn't get that far in, but the choices come flying at you right away. I didn't know how to be bad, so I saw a little girl looking for her doll, and what would a bad person do? That's right! Punch the shi*t out of her. And man did i laugh my ass off. I continued through the game, doing the opposite of what people asked of me, and I was having a ball! I was laughing having a great expirence.
Now, that's all for now, and let's hope I enjoy the game as much as I did at the beginning. =)
