Do you play on the good or evil side?
Well today I thought I would take a look at the evil over good, opps mean good over evil. I guess what I’m saying is what’s your favorite good or evil? To me it all depends on the mood sometime it’s fun to be bad, but then again I think I’m a nice guy so I have to be nice sometimes.
Regardless of your feeling we’ll looking into both sides of the augment and try not to make too many conclusions. First up let’s look at the good side and then we’ll delve into the world of evil.
Being good is what civilized society wants you to be, hell its practical rammed down our throats daily with poorly made cops shows being the mainstay genre of TV channels worldwide. Now calm down, I’m not saying don’t be good it was just an observation.
When I first started playing online games, for the most part you could only be the good guy, Hey the game was still fun. I enjoyed my time in those games there was a more open camaraderie between players, while fighting a common goal.
I have to admit I have played more good character roles and classes than on the other side.
Some of my favorite good guy classes and roles.
- Ranger (LOTRO, TERA)
- Paladin (World of Warcraft)
- Jedi Guardian (Star Wars the Old Republic)
- Knight (Linage 2)
- Priest/Purifier (TERA, Rift)
- Mario (Mario Bros)
Ever have bad thoughts? Yeah I’ll be the first to admit it I have them. I want to know why Rick didn’t put a bullet in the governor in the TV show “The Walking Dead” when he had the chance. As I and I’m sure thousands of people have said I wouldn’t have let him off that easy.
For me when I feel beat down being in real life then playing the side evil and dubious is fun as hell!
Why is that some games you can only play the good guy that’s BS. I want to an equal but fun alter ego slash evil side when I feel like being bad.
One example is when you’re a Sith in SWtOR your given a slave companion to help with your daily tasks, and you can send a shock to her collar anytime you just feel like it. The world is full of big meanies might as well be in the game world too. I also love the way they made you look more evil as you progressed in game too.
Some of my favorite bad guy classes and roles.
- Sith Marauder (Star Wars the Old Republic)
- Necromancer (Guild Wars 2,Rift, Ever Quest 2)
- Turan Assassin (Requiem: Memento Mori)
- Inconnu race (Dark Age of Camelot)
- Sarnak race (Ever Quest 2)
- The Defiant (Rift)
Regardless how you like to play at least the game companies have finally started to give us a choice of playing a good or evil. It is great to get to see a game from both sides and then you really get to see the inner working of the game. So today I ask you what are you playing evil or the good side?
