I just thought of an exception. I will allow
Spoiler:
Cid to die in Final Fantasy 6,
on account the story is better that way. And also because it took me years to figure out that it was even possible to save him.

However, you can't hardly say that you are being evil for let it happen. It feels almost scripted to happen, for years i didn't know you could actually save him.

Well...
Spoiler:

Killing Lucien Lachance in TES IV: Oblivion, the speaker of the Dark Brotherhood, always make me feel good... but he is evil and he doesn't count.

Let me rephrase my question. Kill someone, anyone, that you CAN choose to let go, but you just won't

Spoiler:

That was my example. Lucien Lachance is part of a guild of assasins, he comes to your room at night to ask you to join the Dark Brotherhood if you kill an innocent NPC (which happens for some unfortunate glitch in a quest). He gives you the option and then disappears in the night... however i always kill him in the spot, despite he is not a threat.

Spoiler:

Or maybe in Fable... where i killed Whisper, but she was hardly harmless and i didn't liked her character at all.

I believe that is all...

I CANNOT Play the bad guy in a video game that gives you a choice. No matter how many times I play Fallout 3 I always take the good routes. Sometimes I'll resort to petty thievery but that's as far as I'll go, I have never even done some of the missions because I can't stomach doing bad things. I literally cannot do it. I've tried to do it and I always feel horrible about myself and start over.

I have felt good about executing people in video games before though, I always get a surge of self-rightious fury whenever I go to Paradise Falls.

Yeah actually in Dragon Age: Origins, one of the beginning quests...
Spoiler:

I was female city elf. And I just had to kill that dude that kidnapped my character and her cousin. He was a evil bastard and a rapist and it seemed like no matter what I chose, I'd be in trouble and I gotta say killing that bastard was probably the most rewarding kill for me in a game. X'D I felt like all heroic and victorious and pretty damn satisfied with myself. It was pretty fun. I loved that back story.

I usally feel bad about playing the "evil" playthrough, though it does depend on the situation, for example:
if I slaghter an entire town of people and come out with a decent outcome, then I can allow it, whereas if I don't come out with anything then i feel bad and have to reload!

I typically play these types of games twice. My first playthrough, I just play as "myself" and just use my gut-feel instinct in making all my decisions. Usually ends up with me being a nice guy with a snarky streak and built around sneaking.

With my second playthrough I typically get all genre-savvy and minmax the hell out of the thing. And, also, I play a girl. A bitchy, often evil girl.

I play good first... always... then I TRY to play bad, but often still make more good choices than bad. It's weird how video games can capture you in a way that your own morals apply to the character you play as.

My first playthrough of big moral explorational sandboxes like ES and Fallout I go the good route to get myself the idea of how the game works and then on my next play through i become an absolute villain and kill anyone who talks shit to me.

I barely got anywhere in skyrim before attempting in bloody rage to kill everyone because some of the NPC's are such twats. My campaigns of bloodshed usually start with the Pious Talonite Preacher in Whiterun, and then I methodically murder every city to absolute shambles.

I think this might be ingrained to my general hatred and disgust of other human beings, to quote the description of that video.
QUOTE
Basically all I ever do in Skyrim. Kill people. The tainted populace of Earth is no different from these neanderthals, they serve only one admirable function... a tasteless sword-kebab that not even a hungry American trash-gurgler would eat.

The world shall all be impaled on the sword of the omnipotent indestructable force that is my hatred and disgust in other human beings.

I find it extremely hard to be evil in any game, if given the choice. I can't even pick up any Grand Theft Auto or Saint's Row game because of that! It's a shame, too, because the gameplay in those games looks really fun. But the fact that I'd be acting like a dick in those games is a dealbreaker for me.

Well I mean in Saints Row you are a dick to other bigger dicks so it's validated.

I mean they are called the Saints, so in a world of dicks they are way less dicky.

I'd suggest the 2nd and 4th games, the Third is pretty mediocre (still fun as heck) and I haven't played the first so I can't state much on it.
