Letter: Video Games, RPGs, and Morality

Dear Pilgrim @njb4725 and others who like video games. We've discussed our enjoyment of Elder Scrolls in the past. My first experience with an RPG is probably either Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic or Morrowind. In truth, it was never in me to play the role of the villain, even in a video …
