@tolkoto I think playing “bad” in Mass Effect isn’t the same as playing evil in games like KOTOR. Paragon and Renegade are much closer together on the good/evil spectrum than Light Side and Dark Side. When I used to play KOTOR, I couldn’t stomach the evil choices.

A renegade Shepard might punch out a reporter, but a dark Jedi would straight up force-choke her in cold blood.

Actually, I think Mass Effect was the first series where I played a “dark/bad” character.
