Spinks asks us whether we play evil characters in RPGs and the title of this post is my short answer to that. My long one is here, a post from the aftermath of Dragon Age: Origins’ release in 2009. It details why I’m almost physically unable to play the bad guy in immersive games. I wondered back then and am still wondering right now whether I’m an awful role-player or just an idiot for thinking that way.
Oh, before I forget – Klepsacovic has the answer to this question in the title of his post as well and it’s quite a bit different from mine.
