Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim - Why You Should Avoid Joining the Dark Brotherhood

Though the league of evil Assassin’s will have you wanting to join their evil ranks, there are some benefits to turning from evil and cling to what is good. As an assassin of the evil cult, you'll be required to do a few things that could affect your journey to realizing your Dragon lineage. (Bethesda Game Studios, Bethesda Softworks, PC, PS3, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, Xbox 360)

=( I loved the dark brotherhood in oblivion
megacowdung  +   1301d ago
Me too so I'm still joining it. Why should I listen to words on a computer screen.
Fylus  +   1301d ago
If the Dark Brotherhood faction has another "House Party" quest... Nothing... NOTHING will keep me from joining.
Spitfire_Riggz  +   1301d ago
That was so sick lol. You really felt like a serial killer taking everyone into a room... closing the door... planting a poisoned apple or two in some pockets.. LMAO

Maybe I will finish the questline first then retire from being the hero and become an assassin and kill everyone I met during my quest for justice muahahahah >:)

Dark Brotherhood in Oblivion was awesome sauce. I get the idea why you may want to avoid them. They want to kill people, which can mean quest will be unavailable. I perszonally will probably play as neutral as I can, to get as much out of the entire game, and then on my next playthrough, go balss to the wall mad, joing the Brotherhood and stop caring about my choices.

Since I can't join them... I Will KILL Them ALL !!!

These better not be spoilers...
Pro_TactX  +   1302d ago
If you are concerned about the article possibly containing spoilers, then just don't click the link.
kcuthbertson  +   1301d ago
No..that's not how it should work...the article should clearly state whether or not it has spoilers...
Pro_TactX  +   1301d ago
@kcuthbertson
Complaining about how it should work is pointless. I agree, it should work that way, but I am a realist. The reality is that it doesn't work that way. If you don't want to read spoilers, then stay away from articles that cover the game.
Korix  +   1301d ago
You call yourself a realist huh?
In reality, it would be easy for the contributer of this article to state whether or not the article contains spoilers - even to what degree.
It's very easy, not time consuming, and helps a lot of people determining if they should read it, and contributers are already doing it all the time. You know why? Because it's not an unrealistically high expectation.
All you are, is a pessimist. And you're not even in touch with reality, as people are already saying if the articles they put up here contain spoilers.

@Korix
I am a realist. I am fully aware that it is easy for the contributor to put spoiler warnings up. I am fully aware that some people already do that. I am also fully aware that not everyone does, and the only way to completely protect yourself from reading spoilers is to avoid the articles in the first place.

You are justifying why people should put spoiler warnings up, and I agree with you. However, arguing about what should be does not make it so.

You are arguing for the ideal situation. I am arguing that the ideal situation is not the reality.
HardCover  +   1301d ago
In reality, you're both wasting your time arguing perspectives on life instead of sending a private message to the user who submitted this article.

A little bit can go a long way.

So...is there spoilers? XD
Laxman  +   1302d ago
F**k that, Dark Brotherhood are awesome!
Pro_TactX  +   1302d ago
I don't care what the consequences are. I am joining the Dark Brotherhood. That was my favorite quest line in Oblivion.
Spitfire_Riggz  +   1301d ago
I especially loved the friday the 13th easter egg!
Canary  +   1301d ago
Considering how even games that try to sell themselves based on player choice (Dragon Age, Mass Effect, etc.) don't have much in the way of consequences, I wouldn't expect much from Skyrim.

I'm sure if you've got the stats (assuming guild line quests actually require the right skills this time) you can be the head of the Mages and Thieves guild and the Dark Brotherhood.

Bethesda games are not about choice. They're about "freedom,"--or, rather, letting the player do EVERYTHING he or she wants to do (which frequently means zero permanent consequences for anything). That's been their credo forever.

Im not even going to honor this article with my eyes......HAIL SITHIS!!!
kcuthbertson  +   1301d ago
HAIL Brother!
Breostag  +   1301d ago
may the Night Mother wrap you in her cold loving embrace

Morag Tong was better
`-`

although, knowing that I am a completionist, I doubt any reason would stop me from joining this faction

duuumb
aGameDeveloper  +   1301d ago
While the article has a point about a negative reputation affecting your ability to interact with the good people of the world, the whole point of the DARK Brotherhood is to do the killing in secret - in which case it should not affect your reputation if you don't screw up, I would presume.
Terrified  +   1301d ago
Just like being a thief, steal carefully and you won't have to worry. The site's too damn slow to load so w/e.
sonicsidewinder  +   1301d ago
I never liked the idea of being an assassin.

I prefer the romantic ways of thievery. Lives need not be taken...unless necessary. (which was not often, me being the god-thief that I was).
Laxman  +   1301d ago
That is so gay.
sonicsidewinder  +   1301d ago
lmfao!

mission accomplished.

Still joining on my first play through. All this does is add even more replay value to a game that is already overflowing with it. This is actually a good thing when put into that perspective.
Erudito87  +   1301d ago
i plan on doing what i did in oblivion making a good character that turns evil
SITH  +   1301d ago
I think everyone eventually turns evil in elder scrolls games. I know I do.
SITH  +   1301d ago
I will join when I make my elite stealth kahjiit. My first character is going to be a dark elf warrior Mage. I can't freaking wait. I hate seeing a friend playing it right now!
bobrea  +   1301d ago
I'm still joining.
