While everyone had been looking forward to E3, I went the other way. I started looking back at some of my older games, mainly because there wasn’t anything at E3 that caught my attention. I kept trying to follow the expo, but nothing jumped out at me.
Good, evil, or beyond?
So I started to play Fallout 3 again, and last night I dug out Fable 2. I spent a while last night playing the blacksmithing mini-game, trying to scrape some money together to buy some property, which I didn’t really do on my first play-through. Tonight, I might try to make some more cash on Fable, then stick Fallout on for a bit. I’m not very far in, but I know what I’m going to do next. I’m going to detonate the bomb at Megaton, watch the explosion rip through the skyline, then I’ll reload the game. Because I can’t play the rest of the game with the mark against my name.
I don’t know why, but whenever I play a game where there’s the choice to play either as a good guy or a bad guy, I always seem to play as the good guy. I just don’t feel right about being bad. Whenever I can sense that a game is going to force me to make a choice, I have to save the game. My hard-drives are littered with forgotten save files, remnants of game story branches that I’ve “saved for later” but never gotten back to. Whenever I try to go down the bad guy route, I stick with it for a little bit, but it never seems right. I always resort back to being good. I can’t help myself. Even when I have the intention of doing a good play-through and a bad play-through, I do the good one first, then never get around to playing the evil way. Each play-through ends up the same way.
