Couldn't agree more.

Now let me get back to playing Black & White 2 once again...

Why do people use Karma meters in their games? This is why I object to the idea of religion and support the idea of kick starting scientific cults instead. That way, morals can evolve and there would be justifications for it.

That's correct, you live ine London, yet still spell rather incorrectly, "meter" divulge, what is a "meter" is it a distant yet retarded cousin of metre? who lives like a tramp in a swamp in the west country? Also known as Wales

Ah yes, misspelling "metre". Possibly a much more grievous sin than misspelling "in".

Snarkiness aside, it would be interesting to see a game forsake the traditional binary "good-evil" system in favour of a hideously complex beast based on actual Personality Psychology theories. I wonder what sort of special prize you'd get for finishing with full Neuroticism.

The thing is, that if you do that, you'll only end up in depressing mediocrity (read: reality). They need extremes to sell, and neutrality or variations of "30% good, 60% evil, 10% failure at math" simply don't provide much of a target there.

If we're being picky, the grammar and construction of that sentence is fucking awful.

The problem with a morality system is thus: It's a cheap way of getting extra play time out of a game. They'd rather say "You can play this game any way you like!" (which means "you can play it twice") than "We couldn't be fucked making one decent, coherent story, so we decided to make a branching one with two story arcs, neither of which are particularly different or exciting, but you won't notice because you'll be blinded by ALL THE MORALITY. Hopefully."
"There comes a time in every person's life when they should learn to shut up. It is called 'birth'."

bugger grammar in the arse.. semantics is what I care about and I use care loosely, but at the end of the day there's my opinion and the wrong one, and then there's tramps, slags, Scots, Welsh, Irish, Cornish, French, Whale shit, and yours, enjoy a good seethe, i love a good seethe

to add, atleast I don't spell a a fat, stupid rude yank, ie wrongly

Hmm I'm surprised he's overall positive about the game despite him hating morality meters and this game having one of the most constricting morality systems available

What are you talking about? metre is a measurement on length, meters are measuring instruments, some games measure your actions good or evil, thus morality meters

Don't mind him, he's just our little pet troll. Very ineffective and useless, but excellent at that.
