    Has there ever been a game that let you be more than just a Saturday morning cartoon villain?

    You can be clever evil in Kingmaker. Mask of the Betrayer probably has the best evil options in any CRPG, although it can get pretty melodramatic.

    I thought Age of Decadence did mundane evil pretty perfectly: evil is a shortcut. e.g. if you want the regeneration potion but you don’t have the skills to steal it or persuade the locals to hand over the ingredients, you can murder an entire village full of innocents to get your hands on it. IIRC there’s no penalty for wiping them out, just a big reward. If you have the stats to kill whoever gets in your way, AoD makes it worth your while to be a cold hearted butcher. It’s not enough to give the player evil options, you also need to incentivize them.

    You could be pretty evil in Bloodlines but it didnt feel like it because you were a vampire and above human affairs.

    Fallout 1.5: Resurrection Aka the edgiest Fallout game so far (that says something considering how edgy original FO1-2 is). No jokes, this mod has thoroughly developed alternative questlines for "evil" characters.

    What's dumb about being evil in video games is that devs force you to sit through cutscenes in which the poor victims of your exploits cry crocodile tears and call you a meanie

    What's with this kindergarten morality why include an option to exploit someone if you're going to bully the player for it

    Dominions sounds like the game you are describing. In fact, you can play as a stationary blood fountain who communicates by possessing vestal virgin blood slaves. Or an elder lich who summons skeletons... you can play as fucking Cerberus FFS.

    Dominions sure puts the S into SRPG, though. It also lacks a decent narrative due its sandboxy nature and lack of a campaign per se.

    All the games by this team have some really brilliant dialog options to be an asshole. Even the pachinko simulators (ESPECIALLY the Pachinko simulators).

    Good reminder that this game needs a remaster. And I don't mean a graphical one, but a gameplay/control/hacking overhaul. It's also a reminder that MCA is an ace storyteller.

    You can buy and sell slaves, rob caravans, rig elections, became demon and elder deities possessed satan worshiper and join bratva in ATOM RPG. What is better that good path is not western cuckoldry ''good'' which means you do stuff for free for ungrateful brats of NPCs too lazy to move 5 meters and do their job. Instead you purge entire gangs, Help the local Shire-Riff by executing some more criminals, ensure that elections are won by honest and true Comrades, purge Lenin statue stealing mutant scum and then purge some vaguely SJW freaks as cherry on top of cake* to raise funds and found new True Orthodox Communism powered Desert Utopia**.

    :killitwithfire::timetoburn::flamesaw::hero:

    * Of course the good Path would trigger the western RPGs writers but they are mutant Comrade Stalin hating scum in need of good purge too.

    ** Results may Vary.

    Whatever atrocity you can imagine, Dominions has already been there.
