Indeed. Btw, I love the double standards some people have. When you join the Dark Brotherhood and start murdering innocents, “That’s totally cool bro/sis and doesn’t mean you have murderous intentions irl!” BUT when you say you join the Stormcloaks then “HOLY CRAP YOU ARE TOTALLY A RACIST IRL!”
When you tell you like Dark Brotherhood/Thieves Guild/Harkon’s gang/whatever? “Cool!” When you tell you like Thalmor? “HOLY CRAP THIS TOTALLY TELLS SOMETHING ABOUT YOU AS A PERSON AND IT AIN’T GOOD!!!”
Yeah, like people who like the Joker. They are all crazy I tell ya and so is everyone who ever finds villains fascinating. Heck, I like Karl Kroenen from Hellboy. That guy is a nazi so I’m doomed. DOOMED! Ahh Tumblr. The place where your game decisions and favorite characters tell everything that needs to be known about you.
I roleplay every character of mine in Skyrim. I can roleplay murderers, thieves, cannibals, vampires, necromancers, general evil-doers and otherwise unpleasant people. Doesn’t mean I’m anything like that irl. And yes, I even have a racist character. Doesn’t mean I’m a racist.
