What's the most evil thing you've ever done in a video game?

Forcing Zaalbar to kill Mission.

I Feel real guilt if i do something bad in a game, like kill an animal or something, so i tend to be good, aha. Though i kill copious amounts of hookers in GTA V.

I toss people and children into the Everfall and off cliffs,summon giant tornadoes and cause earthquakes inside towns in Dragon's Dogma.
I shoot people in the back and loot them before they hit the ground in Skyrim.
I also got Brand-Shei sent to jail, but I actually feel incredibly bad about that.

twistedmic:
And in Infamous 2, on the evil path, I killed surrendering enemies and slaughtered civilians for such petty reasons as being in my way or yelling at/insulting me.

Same here, its not MY fault she tempted fate by saying "you wouldn't hit a lady...right?". Honest to god they bring it upon themselves, which is why I go the extra mile and throw a tornado down their way.

Vrach:
How's that for evil? :P

Idk, some people would laud you for your Machiavellian thinking :p

OT: Probably killing Nazeem after the umpteenth comment about me not being able to go into the Cloud District. Although, depending on the playthrough, I've killed a lot of NPC's.

Lets see....

Oblivion/Skyrim: taking and killing hostages until someone brings me the real Lusty Argonian Maid, becoming Listener of the Dark Brotherhood, killing and robbing anyone who looks anti-Imperial, crushing all those who stand in my path to personal power....

Rome Total War: betraying the other Roman houses and installing myself as Emperor, overthrowing the Roman Republic in the process, assassinating potentially dangerous Generals and agents from allied factions, cracking down on any kind of provincial dissent with overwhelmingly strong garrisons, crucifying the populations of captured settlements who tried my patience, pillaging and raping as the Germanic tribes....

Medieval Total War 2: exterminating the populations of any settlements who resisted besiegement, wiping out every last Italian man, woman and child after Venice dared to betray the Holy Reich, deliberately infecting spies with the Black Death and sending them into other countries as a living biological weapon, burning innocents as heretics and witches, assassinating the Pope and installing my own puppet alongside a German dominated college of cardinals, launching Crusades against political enemies, mass executions of enemy prisoners who had the sheer gall to fight Germans, betrayal of allies who have served their purposes....(though to be fair, I've implemented a policy of having Chivalrous Generals act with compassion and mercy - had a Crusader General who conquered the Holy Lands who was the paragon of honour and morality).

Company of Heroes series: Using incendiary weapons on Allied/Soviet medical facilities, playing exclusively as the Not-Waffen SS, driving Panzers over enemy wounded, booby-trapping civilian buildings....

Dragon Age-Origins: Killing Arl Howe's entire family in revenge for his massacre of the Couslands, killing the possessed child in Redcliffe, siding with the Templars and destroying the entire Mage's Circle, siding with the werewolves and wiping out the Wild Elves, destroying the Chantry's most holy relic and killing Leliana over it, fathering a child via Morrigan purely to save my own life and then murdering her....

Fallout 3: Butchering the ghouls outside Tenpenny Towers and getting a private suite, killing everyone inside Tenpenny Towers when I was bored, nuking Megaton out of existence, working for the slavers in Paradise Falls, enslaving countless innocents for a few hundred bottlecaps each, returning to Vault 101 (I think it was) and slaughtering the inhabitants for kicking me out in the first place, pledging eternal loyalty to the Enclave (God Bless President Eden) and helping them reclaim the blasted wastes of America by purifying it of degenerate elements, poisoning the water supply with the Enhanced FEV virus, crippling the Brotherhood of Steel by killing everyone within it I could, becoming Slaver-King of Pittsburgh....(eventually I killed every single human in the game, bar the Slavers and Enclave personnel I could avoid, and then went mad from loneliness).

Fallout New Vegas: Supporting Caeser's Legion all the way and bringing order to the Mojave, infiltrating the NCR as a double-agent and rotting its Mojave position away from within, betraying everyone in the Sierra Madre, sabotaging the ghoul spaceship, annihilating entire NCR outposts by myself, convincing the Butch and Cassidy-style couple into giving up their foolish plans and handing over their special SMG, then blowing both of their heads off, having Benny crucified....

Hearts of Iron series: Leading Nazi Germany to victory in the Second World War, absorbing the Wehrmacht into the SS (by renaming every new division as an SS unit), rampaging through mainland China as Imperial Japan, breaking free of British oppression as Fascist Iraq and storming into the Caucasus in assistance to Germany's anti-Bolshevik crusade....

The way I see it, there *must* be order and stability. If a few heads must roll, and a few towns razed to the ground to see that happen, then that is a price worth paying.

Funnily enough, I'm the nicest person you'd ever wish to meet in Mass Effect (provided you haven't broken the law or fucked with anyone I care about) and I just cannot bring myself to do anything genuinely villainous in that.

Well on my high chaos ending in Dishonoured when Sam tells you he's through working with you because you've gone too far and starts to slowly sail away I shot him in the back and carried on. It felt like the right thing to do and to its credit, the game didn't give him invincibility frames on leaving which I half expected.

If only the game had anticipated my elaborate way of making Lady Boyle's assassination look like an accident. Let's just say there's a bath in her room and she's currently unconscious... Anything is better than the non-lethal option in that mission y'know. That shit was fucking chilling.

what's the problem with the non-lethal option?

You give her to man who will "take her away forever", meaning you give her to a stalker and he takes her to a remote location, probably chained up in a basement until she "learns to love him".

I had fun killing everyone in my High Chaos playthrough, but with Lady Boyle I sincerely felt I was doing her a mercy - a quick blade in the heart is better than a lifetime with that creepy fuck.

I specifically experimented on how to kill children in the Sims 3.

I always join the Dark Brotherhood.

I make anti-mage decisions in DA:2 simply because I want to romance the grumpy elf who hates mages.

Oh! I had to just go ask my boyfriend because I had forgotten about most of my evil things, and he reminded me of a good one.

Heads in a bathtub!
Ok, so what I did was I went into Megaton and shot someone randomly, just to aggro everyone. Then you run into the ladies room. They'll start filing in and you kill them until the floor is covered in bodies both of named NPC's and random Megaton civvies. Then you go over the bodies with your trusty knife and cut all the heads off. And put them in the bathtub. See how full you can get it.

I thought it was funny.

Oh and I also chopped up that woman you meet in the house outside Vault 101 and hid her body parts all around her house, then gave my boyfriend the controller to see how long it would take him to find them all.

EDIT: Oh and I tied a woman to a railway track in RDD before I even knew it was an achievement. To be fair though, bitch tried to steal my horse.

I remember piling up the corpses of Powder Gangers in Fallout NV after I took back the NCR correctional facility and mockingly reenacting Shakespeare with one of their disembodied heads.

Ah yes, completely forgot about the sadism Sims brings out in me when I tire of a "proper" game! My favourite instance of brutality was forcing a default nuclear family to swim in the pool, then deleting all of the ladders and watching them bob around helplessly, unable to escape and slowly becoming more exhausted until they started drowning, one by one. First the daughter, then the mother, then the father and just as the son was about to perish, I built a ladder to let him out of the corpse and urine/feces filled pool (since their bladder stats needed fulfilling).

Starving and traumatised, I had him cook a meal in the oven without having any skill at it and when it inevitably caused a raging fire, I forced him to perform yoga squats until the inferno claimed him. Now that's what I call achieving Zen!

Playing Minecraft in creative mode, I spawned a bunch of villagers on top of a tall jungle tree just to here the grunts when they hit the ground and die. The children made a more amusing sound than the adults.

Nearing the end of the main story of Fallout 3, I returned to Megaton. It wasn't my home or anything...just a nice place I had visited for awhile. I then proceed to litter the place with mines, Nuka-Cola grenades, and other high explosives.

I, then, take a lengthy hike outside of the town, pull out my sniper rifle and shoot at the clump of explosives I left near the Megaton bomb.

The game lagged for about a minute before the carnage finally revealed itself. And it was glorious.

Surprised nobody's brought up the Closed Fist option in Jade Empire yet...

Although making Zaalbar kill Mission is a close second. Especially if you then kill him afterward.

Funny enough; I did take the non-lethal approach to that and I didn't realize until it was too late what I had done and how it was worse than death. I usually play the paladin when given the option but I rolled with this one rather than reloading. I'm not sure if it counts for me or against me that I wasn't trying to be evil in doing it; I genuinely thought at the time that it was the kinder thing to do.

Most of the non-lethals in that game are fates worse than death (except for having the one guy arrested, which is just slightly delayed death). Hell, if you non-lethal the priest you can find a weeper in priests robes with a note nearby that certainly sounds like it was that guy. Given a choice between just having my throat slit or dying of the plague in a gutter, well, one of those is quick.

My own entry to this thread is saving my daughter by dooming humanity to extinction, after destroying the ghosts of countless innocent people who really didn't understand what they were doing. I've played NieR.

There's a Shakespeare quote on the subject (click for specifics):

Even now I curse the day--and yet, I think,
Few come within the compass of my curse,--
Wherein I did not some notorious ill,










Tut, I have done a thousand dreadful things
As willingly as one would kill a fly,
And nothing grieves me heartily indeed
But that I cannot do ten thousand more.

EDIT: it doesn't fit with the quote, but there's a mod for Just Cause 2 that allows you to launch multiple unbreakable grappling lines. Let's just say there were bodies hanging everywhere after I found that, not all of them dead yet.

EDIT 2: Special mention also goes to how thoroughly I ruined Braith's life in Skyrim after she announced that she wasn't afraid of me. I could have just installed the killable children mod, but that wouldn't have been very creative. First, I used illusion magic during the night to make her father murder her mother. Then, I used the same spell during the day and let the guards do their thing. After making sure he was dead, I went back into the house, cast Undead Thrall on Saffir, and waited. Once a few more quests had been completed, I showed up at the orphanage with Undead Saffir in tow and adopted her. Once we got to my place, I decapitated her undead mother right in front of her and walked out, never to return.

Very true, and I also chose the priests "non-lethal" option but I knew when choosing that it was worse than death :P I don't know, I felt that priest had a more direct hand in the whole thing and if you look around journals and stuff in that level; you find other priests want to do away with "branding" but the Overseer wanted to keep it around. Since it was practically his weapon of choice, I thought there was a sick kind of irony to it :D Maybe I didn't pay as much attention or find enough extra info but I couldn't realise what exactly Lady Boyle had done to deserve death or why she needed to be gone so I chose what I thought it was the kinder option... obviously without dwelling on it as much as the Overseer.

Probably killing Nazeem after the umpteenth comment about me not being able to go into the Cloud District. Although, depending on the playthrough, I've killed a lot of NPC's.

That's not especially evil; it's almost expected. I'm convinced Nazeem was Bethesdas' attempt at creating an NPC infuriating enough that one might naturally get a bounty in Whiterun.

Everything I do in God of War III makes me feel kind of bad. I don't WANT what my character wants. I don't WANT to kill the Olympian gods, I don't WANT to murder every NPC that I come across, I don't WANT to bring the extinction of mankind over some petty notion of revenge.

When escaping from vault 101, I saved the guy who bullied mes mother from the radroaches, got his jacket as his reward and positive karma.

Then shot her.

Between the eyes.

Right in front of him.

I did it fer da experiuns pointz.

I was playing rust, and was brand new at it. Essentially all I knew came from that one Critical Miss comic, about dying in your sleep being anonymous.

So I spawned a little south of the hangar area, and built a small house. I explored north and discovered the hangar for the first time, and ran into a group of 8 friendly guys (they played in shifts so they were never defenseless) and they let me inside for a minute to hide from a bandit sniper. The server crashed while I was inside, and I logged off since it was around 11. I couldn't sleep knowing i was at someone else's mercy with my first gun, so i checked the server. It was back up, and nobody else was logged on. I logged in, and saw all 8 of my friendly, well-equipped saviors sleeping on the floor around me. I dispatched them with my rock, and stole everything. I jumped out the hole in the roof, as they were still building, and was about to run back to my house before i realized the door was locked. They would know it was an inside job, and I was the only suspect. So i rifled through my ill-gotten loot and found C4. I blew a hole in the side of their base, and went home.

Later, when i logged back on, they said they had been raided. "So thats why i respawned when i logged on?" They were arranging a raid with their rival group and had me provide what supplies I could. I assisted the raid and got the biggest cut of the loot for providing bandages and ammo.

They never found out it was me the whole time.

I've since learned its better to have friends than enemies so i havent raided in a while. I still feel bad about it.

Ah, how could I forget? Anyone who took the "new" ending added in Persona 4 Golden knows what i'm talking about. I tried it for completion's sake, and almost threw up. Was a complete affront to everything we'd worked for through my year in Inaba.

KINGBeerZ:
Pretty much anything I did in fallout 3, being evil is just more convenient, probably the highlight of this was when I blew up megaton because I wanted to have a base with a bed that wasn't dirty.

My motivation for blowing up Megaton was even less noble: I wanted to get Moria Brown to shut her yap.

Yeah. There wasn't a harsh enough 'Shut your yap, Moronia' - option in her dialogue, shooting her in the face would have lacked the desired impact, slaughtering the entire town (which I would pretty much have had to do after killing its main shopkeeper anyway) seemed too much hassle...

I set off the bomb. It was glorious. I trekked all the way back, just to see the smoking wreckage up close.

And then a certain newly-made ghoul approached me from behind...

Watch Dogs has me playing evil unintentionally. Emptying the bank accounts of cancer patients and other downtrodden folk. For being a vigilante he sure doesn't act like 1.

most games I play the nice guy no questions asked but there are the odd occasions I try to be bad I tried to kill off a whole town once only to feel bad about it and reload a prior save so I guess I am pretty well behaved although I do oddly enjoy dragging corpses around and I am a odd pickpocket if an NPC is a jerk I swipe all their stuff but I also often try to reverse pickpocket people by putting free gold in their pockets (oddly giving people stuff is a crime in skyrim)

I almost never go for acts of evil in video games. I know, I'm a pussy. But I did say almost never. In SWTOR, I may have kinda blown up a ship full of civilians. Well, actually, I didn't do it, I just didn't stop someone else from doing it. Hey, I'm a bounty hunter working for the Empire, if an evil Sith person wants to do something, I tend to get out of the way so long as they pay me well.

In every other game though, I'm 100% light side/paragon/whatever you want to call it.

^yeah, I did non-lethal once for the achievement and outsider dialogue, but since then I tend to have a pretty strict "Always Murder Brisby" policy, even on otherwise pacifist runs.

Speaking of that mission more on-topic-like, last time I played Dishonored I made a little challenge out of killing everyone at the party without "spoiling" it (I guess like an extreme evil version of the "well mannered" achievement). It ended up being REALLY CREEPY because all of the ambient party noise kept playing in the newly-deserted mansion so it seemed super-haunted.

I did that once. Normally I just play how Corvo would do it, avoiding causalities when possible with guards, Brand the High Overseer because of his knowing, direct hand in my suffering, personally kill the Pendleton brothers so I could personally see the faces of the men who took Emily as they die, kill Lady Boyle because Brisby is sick, spare Daud (unless he enjoys his new lease on life, then I'll come after him once done with the rest), kill Granny Rags, expose Burrows as the source of the plague (then summon rats to devour him), and kill Havelock in a dramatic fight after "kicking" a glass into his face.

Steve Waltz:
I think almost everything I did in Spec Ops: The Line. Maybe it wasn't the WORST thing I had ever done in a video game, but out of everything, it certainly made me feel the most guilty.

It may not be voluntary, but all I need to say is white phosphorus and everyone who played Spec-Ops will have a chill. In terms of evil actions, I hate to admit it but I'm more of a prankster on games. GTA Online is a brilliant stage for annoyance. Like killing another player and strapping C4 to his car for when they respawn. Never. Gets. Old.

According to the twits on youtube I'm a evil bastard for killing Trevor at the end of GTA V.

Probably in Fallout 2. I was tasked with taking a look at this farm where all these corpses (which were in fact scarecrows) were hanging in display as warning. Well, upon looking around I fell down in a pit and held at gun point. I was told to follow them to see their leader. They ensured no hostile intentions, but I could not bring myself to believe them. A fight ensued, and I slaughtered them all. At first it seemed like the right idea, then I noticed my allies and I was gunning down unarmed ghouls as well, and there were some children hiding away. Well, we ascended to the surface and learned that they were simply trying to survive down there and were simply cautious of some well-armed travelers. I massacred an entire community of innocents.

So yeah, that.

First of all, DataSnake, VERY well put. I applaud you, sir or madame. Second, while most my escapades have already been mentioned, I did manage in my Dark Side play-throughs of KotOR to switch Jolee's and Juhani's lightsabers for dinky little swords just before Bastilla. And in Saint's Row 2, the hobos in the church basement that just. won't. leave. after you claim it, well, the gods do demand sacrifice, and sacrifice they shall receive. Sacrifice by the bite of the blade. Sacrifice by the snap of the neck. And, most definitely, sacrifice by the flame. :)

In Dragon Age Origins I traded the possessed boys soul to the succubus for sex. I was just so damn curious.Oh, and I sacrificed his mother to do the ritual in the fist place.
