    I mostly play with good characters because it comes naturally to me. Being evil can be extremely fun, but it requires much more effort, especially if your character's karma was 2000+ on the second playthrough of FO2.

    I enjoy playing evil characters. I love doing assassination, plundering villages, murder, slaughter, extermination, rape... err... wrong game...
    assassination, plundering villages, murder, slaughter, groin thrusts with cattle prod, burning people alive, melting them, cutting them in two, slavery, specism and general bastardism :) ...

    I like playing good characters too :) .

    Heh :) ...
    Usually what my character does in depends on character concept - I usually try playing a variety of different characters, which Fallout allows to do pretty well.

    I Played a good guy once for the NPC's. I Found it quite enjoyable. But i find it more fun Killing those little bastards in the den once they steal your stuff

    Once one of them stole my gauss rifle :( So i couldnt shoot him

    I start off trying to be evil, but then I end up feeling bad about it and lose my resolve... I end up kind of good to very good almost always. Which is kind of sad, because this means I feel bad about some damn sprites on a video game screen.

    I almost always wind up being good, although I like to take a bad attitude approach whenever I can (think Snake Plissken). I've often wished there were more opportunities to threaten someone without turning the entire town hostile or locking out parts of the game. :)

    I mean, hell, so I punched Iguana Bob in the face and knocked him down. Didn't know that was a capital offense in the Hub.

    I tend to play as a "chaotic neutral" type character who ends up seeming good due to the fact that good motives tend to have the best rewards.

    But I'm never actually "good", kill on a whim, and insult people when I feel so inclined. If it best serves my characters interest, he can and will be evil. Good just tends to maximize profits and opportunities more usually.

    I tried playing good characters at first, but I ended up on the low end of evil a lot of the time. As I kept going I started learning what I was doing wrong like gravediging, and such. But now I can't play evil characters. I just can't bring myself to make my character be a racist or side with any of the families in reno.

    Anyone up for joining Good Character Junkies Anonymous? We have beer! :drunk:

    I tend to be good, though I'll do semi-evil things when the overall result will be 'good'. Such as handing Vortis the ranger map and a stick of lit dynamite. I get rid of the Mordinos for selling drugs and slaves, Bishop for being evil, and Salvatore for associating with the Enclave. The Wrights are okay, but I usually poison the liquor supply for fun. (Don't get the Hintbook very often...)

    Unfortunately, there aren't many ways to be creatively evil. Being antisocial and violent is easy, but not very interesting. Being a slaver isn't much better. Forcing Amanda (in the VC courtyard) to have sex with you, then *not* freeing Joshua is pretty good, though.

    I guess there are things that don't qualify as "evil" per se, but I've done them anyway. Drinking every beer and booze I can find (I tend to suffer a lot of perception losses), gambling, sleeping with prostitutes, etc. I played a "stupid" game once by getting addicted to Psycho and staying that way for as long as I could keep my supply up. So I guess that's not exactly lily-white behavior.

    By the way - if you want a different kind of challenge, try the drug addict concept. It can be tough, both with the effects of addiction and keeping enough of your fix around to stay that way (although Jet is pretty damn easy to come by).

    Before you hit New Reno you'll have a problem getting enough to sustain a semi-realistic drug habit. Besides I play drug free games because the drawbacks from using them are usually way bigger than the short term advantage. And yes, I play mister goody two-shoes and I'm loving it :lol: .

    Same here. Tried to finish Torment as chaotic evil but failed miserably.
    But I can play Dungeon Keeper!

    Technically that's not evil, just self defense :twisted:

    I try to play evil but I keep falling back into playing good. It's hard playing evil, you don't get any of the benefits like dental or paternity leave. That's why I'm voting Labor. Say no to WorkChoices.
