"Morality is complicated. Our moral canvasses are painted with all sorts of shades of gray, yet when transposed into videogames what we get is a very simplified black and white version of things. In most games morality takes the form of the classic “good vs evil” dichotomy – paragon/renegade, light side/dark side, etc. The fact is games just aren’t good at capturing the nuances of our moral dilemmas. Oftentimes we can either choose to help someone for the “good” option, or choose not to help, or to personally gain from the situation for the “bad” option."
