Finished an old Dragon Age: Origins game yesterday, which is the first one where I persuaded my way into Cousland/Alistair royal power couple, almost entirely because I wanted to see Alistair's script at the beginning of Awakening if you're married and queen. Despite my completist urges about this game (ALL the origin stories! ALL the character types! ALL the fighting styles!), there are still a number of narrative choices I have trouble making because a) I can't turn my personal ethics off long enough to play through the resulting consequences, and b) I can't bring my character to act like a complete asshole. (Yes it's a game universe, but what's the point of spending so much time on a character that I don't even like?)

... Am I the only one who has these problems? *g*

Heh, I don't try at all to make my Dragon Age PCs likeable, and there are still narrative choices I can't bring myself to pick. Not in an ethically consistent way for me, though -- it definitely depends a lot on how seriously I take the specific plot/subject matter at that moment.

Haven't played DA, but I'm the same way in most video games I play. I can't even be mean to NPCs.
