Baldur’s Gate 3 players reportedly struggling to do an evil playthrough. That said, it simply means that the darker playthrough is not made for everyone on the platform.
Baldur’s Gate 3 Players Evil Playthrough
Baldur’s Gate 3 as you should already know from the previous articles on it offers players a vast array of player choices as well as branching paths that can easily get to create a couple of different playthroughs. But even at that, some players on the platform are feeling the guilt of their evil actions.
Over on the subreddit of the game, players are reportedly discussing their experiences of taking on the role of the bad guy in the RPG of Larian Studios, and at that even considering the number of comments as well as the 6,000+ upvotes on the post, it now seems that there are many on the platform who are having the same morality problems.
Player Reactions to the Evil Playthroughs
“I just wanted to do a run where I mainly make the evil decisions, like raiding the grove with the goblins,” user LucioRoyal stated. “But everything sucks. Killing Zevlor and Wyll alongside all the other Tieflings was so gruesome. After that, I met Karlach and she just told me to fuck off. Then in camp seeing how Gale was about to leave and how Shadowheart was mindlessly drinking made me feel even worse.”
LucioRoyal added that they got to quit their evil playthrough eventually in favor of another normal save file, thus stating that they never thought that they would feel so bad for characters supposedly in a video game.
Myriad Responses from Other Players
The user in question isn’t alone, too in the whole fiasco. The thread as you should know contains myriad responses from players all echoing the same sentiment, with one player in question saying that even while playing as Origin character Astarion – the rogue vampire on the other hand who usually approves of the bloody choices of the player – their playthrough is really tough.
“I’m doing a solo Astarion run atm and seeing all my former companions die horribly or disappear and presumably get ceremorphose’d really feels like a time travel ‘worst timeline’ plot to Star Trek or something,” user gilradthegreat stated. “Like, if my paragon Tav never made it off the nautiloid, this is the shitty world that we end up with in this alternate timeline.”
Another user in regards to the same issue said, “In my worst timeline Durge playthrough, Astarion and I are the Sword Coast’s newest nightmarish power couple. Everyone else is dead or has abandoned us due to my actions. It feels horrible, but somehow less worse than Astarion alone.”
“I tried to start one yesterday but immediately failed because it made me feel sad,” said a different player.
Baldur’s Gate 3 Has More Than 17,000 Alternate Endings
Baldur’s Gate 3 has more than 17,000 alternate endings, as per Larian, it is quite amazing that it is able to boast such an incredible number of player choices. But for some, on the other hand, making those very forms of evil decisions just isn’t for them.
Patch 3 Is Now Live
