    I could also see Chris Avelone doing that

    As for being an Evil character, personally I feel like the NCR gives you just as many opportunities to do that as the Legion does.

    Yes!!! I love those someone to watch over me and the monorail pranks, those are going to be happening for sure. I'm also definitely going to nuke both sides. I did the St. Claire route w/ Beyond the Beef, I now have the lore to grab the Cannibal perk, as I understand the finer techniques of braising a human leg shank. *chef's kiss*

    Also, I'm going to break the bank on a casino, probably the Tops, and then when they stop me from gambling, bust out the glock, and pull an Ocean's Eleven

    Since you didn't use Cass for beef, you could always give her to Jean Baptiste.

    Oh that was done...

    "Hey, wanna....well...umm...follow me to Freeside? Also, you know a guy named Jean-Baptiste? You know what? doesn't matter, let's go."

    I have done this in my most recent play through (lit up The Tops after killing House because they already hated me there) and there's a real lack of loot to be had at the casinos in the vanilla game. Felt kinda disappointed, even though my character was introduced to Yes Man during the whole ordeal.

    In a dream New Vegas remake that exists only in the imagination, the Courier can run a heist questline with Dean Domino post-Dead Money.

    Dean never survives Dead Money when I play

    I would just have been satisfied it if they stocked the cashier's cage with a couple grand worth of caps and NCR money, maybe give an NPC or two on the floor a key to get in. Nothing too fancy.

    I don't know the ins and outs of the game very well but would it be possible to create an evil asshole that everyone loves? The kind of guy that kills the squad they were supposed to rescue and reports back that they couldn't be saved in time? "Mojave Psycho" if you will? Not nearly as destructive as Ulysses' second string but a fun alternative way to be evil. I dabbled in it at the beginning of my playthrough but only through petty theft that didn't keep me in negative karma for long.

    If you threaten or blackmail him he is gone IIRC.

    Yeah but even if you do things correctly and don't do that there isn't really much of an incentive to continue letting him live once he finishes the monologue that explains what his whole deal is.

    Using the Barter option with Dean will also cause him to turn on you later in the game because he believes you have a secret agenda. You pretty much have to play nice with Dean and follow everything he tells you to do if you want him to live.

    Honestly in hindsight if you actually read the dialogue in the "bad" checks with Dean it's pretty clearly something that would rub him the wrong way if you've been paying attention to his character.

    Which is something New Vegas should have had a lot more because outside of that barter check, most if not all checks are win buttons. Meaning you don't even need to read them, just pay attention if you can pass it or not.
