    You didn't notice the "more" command on the 9th choice? Most of those lead to the same response too.

    I don't really care about dialog, I wouldn't mind to be given a summary of the conversation and choice between "angry yes/no", "friendly yes/no", and a bunch of other generic options that would result in dynamic reactions.

    That shit is wack. Twenty dialogue options? Can't say I recall that many at any given moment. There's about a couple of situations where you get more than 10, but 20 doesn't ring any bells.

    Then again, Gromnir is right... Twenty or so options in one or two dialogue sections is largely meaningless in a game in the 40-60 hour range. It just isn't relevant. And as DU also pointed out, adding choices should only be done when they make sense, not at every turn.

    yeah, somebody says "hey, how's it going" and you get:

    1. "bad, i need to slice my wrists downstream, not across the street"
    2. "fuck you"
    3. "blow me"
    4. "like roses!"
    5. "...

    well, you get the picture.
