Help. KOTOR is eating my brain.

And let me tell you: playing it after playing KOTOR 2 is hurting my brain.  Was the sequel as gleeful as the original at trying to send your character spiraling inward to the Dark Side, and I just don’t remember? – because Knights of the Old Republic seems pretty damned determined to bring me down.  And I understand that it gets worse as you go on.

Fun game, though.

    Is this really a feature of the game or some dark voice crying out in your very soul? Perhaps you should reach out to your inner Palpatine.

      countrydoc: I understand that the penalty for DarkSiding KOTOR 1 is rather… unpleasant. Besides, I like playing Neutral/Lawful Good Girl/Boy Scouts.

    I was watching someone play KOTOR and it did seem that the evil path was much more interesting. Never having experienced KOTOR 2 I cannot say if it (darkside nudging, er, shoving) is more or less prevalent the second time around.

    It just seemed that all the Captain Reynolds answers would get you dark side points pretty quick… or so I recall.

    I honestly dislike playing a game where the “light” side is stiff and righteous, while the “dark” side is awesome and exciting. There tends to be no middle ground in those games at all.

    Oh, the KOTOR games eat so many hours…The Dark Side is so seductive in those games for two reasons. One, they get the cool powers. Two, they get the amusing companions. Seriously, do you want to get lectured about morality from the Jedi chick or get murder advice from the assassin droid?

    Why does good have to be so… stiff? And not in a good way.
