Would you rather be heroes or villains? There are not few games that give you freedom to choose.
In real life, normal people are very clear that doing good is taking the right path. Maybe in video games too, although in them we take the freedom to experiment without fear of the consequences . There are sagas that have their own morality system, as we can find in Mass Effect or Fable , among others.
There are also those who bet everything that our actions directly affect the development and resolution of the story that he tells us, as it happens in Prey . Being able to choose between doing good and evil is yet another example of the insistence of the developers when it comes to making the real protagonist none other than the player himself. We propose 10 video games in which you decide whether to be good or bad .

Mass Effect SagaWe could have chosen any work from BioWare: Dragon Age, KOTOR, Baldur’s Gate … But we have stayed with Mass Effect because of how epic its stories are once the time comes to make decisions. Some left their mark on us, and not all of them led us on the path to being good people.
