Recently, I was watching/reading a little about Dishonored 2, and a major choice I made in the original Dishonored. I was going through the game, generally being stealthy and non-lethal, only killing all but one of my targets (though I wonder if it would have been a better alternative to what she faced), and helping where I could. Eventually, I reach the point in which you’re betrayed by your allies, and… I was angry. Not raging, not annoyed, but some some combination of calm, cold, numb, and angry to the point of blurred vision. I could feel myself going through the motions of the game, until I encounter him.
The man who ruined everything.
We fought, I won, and he was at my mercy. He offered his life to me, and I sat there, pistol aiming dead center of his head and fully ready to pull the trigger. I took a deep breath, then another…
…Then, I sighed through my nose, and stowed my weapons.
“And you choose mercy. Extraordinary.”
I don’t know why I did it. Whether I was just tired from everything before or whatever, but what I want to know is: has anyone else had an experience like this in a game? Or was I just crazy?
