    Hey, I havn't posted in a long time but i was wondering if you guys could help me with something. I'm searching for some RPG games for the computer where you can play as the bad guy. Where you are ether auto-matically the villain or are able to determine your alignment. Games like SW:KOTOR, Enclave, arcanum, fable etc. If you guys could recommend some I would be evry gratful!

    Evil Genius. Except it's boring, frustrating as hell, slow, really boring and isn't in any way an RPG.

    It doesn't really count as an RPG but, Vice City is always fun.

    Played evil Genius to death, beat KOTOR 2, can't get my hands on fallout, and mastered vice city. Can you guys think of any other games where you can play as the bad guy?

    Kain isn't evil, he's just misunderstood. As for turning humans into cattle and destroying the world...well, everyone can have their bad days.
    Vae Victus!

    If you want to be evil in an RPG play a MMORPG and wail on anyone with a level which is a decimal place lower than yours.

    The point about Kaine is that it is nigh impossible finding a game where you are the de facto bad guy. It's slightly easier finding a game where you are a villain, just not as villainous as whatever antagonist you may be fighting at the moment.

    ...how can you be evil in SoA or DS? It's rather line-driven... oh, and don't forget Morrowind. ^_^ As well as:
    Icewind Dale 1 & 2
    The Sims 1 & 2
    Leisure Suit Larry: Magna Cum Laude*

    *this counts if naughty = evil

    Evil Genius is a great game to play if you're supposed to be studying. It actually leaves you some time to study while playing! Also, the James Bond-ish stuff in there as well as the stuff you can make your minions do makes it fun. I mean, how can you *not* like a game where you can steal the Eiffel Tower?

    in blood omen 2, kaine IS pretty bad, he's going through all the trouble just so HE can rule the world, besides he's a vampire, which makes his enlightment bad by nature. (vampires have no soul, hehe)
    btw, guess who's back for no apparent reason and probably leave again after this post?!

    If that is in response to my post you may have missed the bit about enslaving the human race. I was joking.
    Kain is evil and selfish. He pretends he is trying to fix things when really he is trying to preserve his own life. If he had made the new pillar guardians into vampires and then committed suicide all this would be fixed and the hylden would be locked out forever. However he was too selfish for that.

    Also in the legacy of kain games vampires do have souls. That's why the elder god hates them so much. The souls are trapped inside their eternal bodies and he can't get at them.

    Back on the topic of evil RPGs: Play final fantasy with a party of black mages. It's the most evil you can be...without actually being able to do any evil.
