So I was wondering what everyone thought of author control over your main character - particularly control relating to speech.
Do you like to only speak when you’ve chosen to (even if it is a little embellished), or are you quite happy for the author to make you talk out of turn?
If anyone’s played Mass Effect, Shepherd often talks ‘out of turn’ where you don’t have any control over what (s)he says, even to the extent of choosing renegade or paragon - on the other hand, in Bioware’s Knights of the Old Republic they use a only speak when chosen to setup.
They’re the best examples I could think of ^^’
Edit: The Elder Scroll games are another good example of speaking only when choosing to. The Witcher (Geralt) is another example of often speaking/saying something you’ve got no input over.
