Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

    Playing the villain is a refreshing alternative to playing the hero. Especially after growing up with Zelda, Mario and all that 'save the day' stuff.

    i actually find playing the villain to be mostly boring

    i have a hard time playing an "evil" character in Fable 2 for example because the evil in that game is so needless.

    like you're doing it for the sake of being evil and you can't really find any character motivation for it or whatever

    the Mass Effect series does this right, i think.

    you can choose between boy scout, no-nonsense soldier, or belligerent asshole

    but at the end of the day you're still the hero saving the galaxy

    even if you were sort of a shit-heel as you did it

    i am okay with that

    more games need to have that sort of spectrum, instead of "pet kittens or burn orphanage", a little more difference between playing Superman or Frank Castle would be nice.

    both can be boring. it just depends on how it's handled.

    villainy gets bonus points for me because it's rare.

    i actually don't have a whole lot of interest in playing a bad guy in video games

    i mean, i do "dark side" playthroughs of video games where moral choices and shit result in different story and content

    renegade playthroughs of Mass Effect, sith playthrough of Kotor II, etc.

    but if a game basically asks me to play as an amoral bastard, i don't have a huge amount of interest in it

    SR2 is sort of a weird exception because it's cartoonishly goofy

    pony i want you to play nier so badly

    actually i want everyone to play it, but you especially

    i want to see how you two react

    i want it to be the baking soda in the papier-mache volcano of your mind

    he will post about six or seven posts musing about it

    the first one will be a reply to someone

    the rest will be thoughts that occur to him several moments later, in succession, addressed to no one in particular, expanding and nuancing his previous statements

    oh no my posting style revealed

    so i played nier- interesting game

    i'm not sure how i feel about it because i had a stroke as the game entered its denouement, but it was pretty interesting
    Pony wrote:
    oh, you played nier? yeah, i just finished it, like i was saying last night

    thought about it some more, still not sure how i feel
    Pony wrote:
    given it some thought since a few minutes ago, actually

    it has all of these intimatios about fear and its root in the people around you, and- guess what- i don't like that!

    i'm a guy who's been around scary people, and who's even been a scary person at times, for a long time

    i am not comfortable with this game bringing those things to the forefront so casually, and i won't be replaying it
    Pony wrote:
    hey

    guess what

    i didn't say you couldn't like it

    i don't know why my statements are always twisted- i wasn't even arguing!

    guess what, sometimes i express my opinions strongly, i can't control reactions

    oh boy, big surprise

    recycled paper is stealing from hard-working pulp mills and lumberjacks

    I went a sustainability event yesterday night in Portland (boyfriend did a short presentation) with lots of people who are into green and sustainable and reusing stuff

    I would love to hear those guys react to that newspost

    You and your second-hand thieves will be rounded up by our new corporate masters and be forced to pay for your crimes against humanity
