Gamers have shared their experiences of playing multiple choice games and the choices they always make, whether it’s because they prefer certain outcomes, or they have a soft spot for a particular character.
When a game gives you a choice, you’re likely to have a go at making all of them. Sometimes, though, you come to a decision, and you just know what you’re going to do. Sometimes it’s because you prefer that outcome, other times it’s because you find it amusing, and in some cases, you just have a special little place in your heart for a particular character.
One Mass Effect player says they “never kill Wrex,” while another mentions they always choose to kill him, despite doing so every time through the game. In Skyrim, many players refuse to kill Paarthurnax, instead using a mod to change the outcome, while others say they always punch the reporter in Mass Effect – the decision to punch the reporter is so popular that it’s actually referenced in Mass Effect 2.
Other popular choices include never harvesting little sisters in Bioshock, opting for low chaos in the Dishonored games because it feels cool to be sneaky and stealthy, and never letting Yuna die in Final Fantasy X.
Here are some of the most common choices players tend to make every time they play through multiple choice games:
