Anybody else hate to be the bad guy?

Does anybody else really hate going down the "wrong path" in games? I hate playing the bad guy in games where you get to choose your own path, like Mass Effect, Fable and KOTOR. I think its because I'm spending so much time in these games, I really don't want to mess it up by being the bad guy. I'm such a weenie. :lol:

^ I just bought and sold large quantities of diamonds to the same trader. Less time consuming.

I usually play the good guy too. I'm too nice. :evil: And usually the bad guy always looks really ugly like the facial vericose veins in KOTOR, smoking balding head in Fable, and magma-face Shepard. Being the bad guy also entails really corny scripts that just makes your character act like an asshole. Although sometimes I do pick evil options because the good ones can be so wussy.

Occasionally I'll play as a bad guy just for fun but I never really put a lot of time into those.

I really enjoy being the good guy in most games, not much of an evil dood

Evil is not in my nature.

Indeed, there are times when you just need to kick a little ass. Just letting bad guys walk all over you makes no sense.

:lol: I've still never really played the Fable games. I should pick them up. I think I can get the first for like 5 bucks at my local CD Tradepost. (CD Tradepost is like a chain of pawn shops... not sure if they are anywhere other than around here or not)

Yeah it turns out that the game's definition of good and mine aren't always the same. Granted I'm pretty Goku when it comes to most things but if someone is villainous scum I'm not gonna be treating them nicely. It's pretty hard to get on my bad side, but I do have one.

It's not quite the same but my brother was playing GTA IV on my machine at the weekend and was doing all the running over pedestrians and attacking innocent bystanders stuff that gets the game a bad rep and I was all like :no: On Way of the Samurai 3 you have to be quite villainous to get certain trophies or endings and I always felt a little sad, like I was violating the spirit of the game even though that was what it was asking me to do.
What you call love was invented by guys like me, to sell nylons. You're born alone and you die alone and this world just drops a bunch of rules on top of you to make you forget those facts. But I never forget. I'm living like there's no tomorrow, because there isn't one.

Thats a cool concet, actually questioning the nature of evil and what it means to truly be good too bad most games just ask you to be heroic, or evil without asking why.

I can't be a good guy in a game that gives me a fart button.

I'll start beeing bad but then I'll always end up beeing good anyway. Never can be bad for that long, I just prefer beeing good. Guess that's why I'm the healer in world of warcraft :) I'm all like I'll save you!

If only Ryo had that as a fight move....the possibilities!

I go so far as to suggest that Ryo could have stopped Lan Di from killing Iwao with the right toot to the face.
