Four Unpopular Decisions I’ve Made in Role-Playing Games

UM writes: As many of you know, I’m very vocal about what I like and don’t like. I’m very honest about what I feel, but I don’t shove my preferences into other people’s throats. When I first discovered the existence of internet forums, I was excited about the whole idea of discussing my favorite video game with people from the around the world. One of my first posts was about the narrative I created involving Shepard’s love triangle with Liara and Miranda. For some odd reason, people started calling me names and accused me of ludicrous assumptions. People attacked me by saying that I was such a horrible person and I must be a ‘cheater’ in real life. If I am to follow that logic, I cheat on my romantic partners in video games therefore I am a douchebag in real life. Absurd, really. Granted, there are some choices I make in video games that reflect my values and beliefs but there’s also something called “creative storytelling.” You know, that sort of thing where you actually role-play.

SPOILERS AHEAD. (Dragon Age: Origins, Fable 2, Mass Effect 3, PC, PS3, The Walking Dead: Episode 1 "A New Day", Xbox 360)
