I don't like it when I'm given a list of things to say to an NPC, but I don't have a clear recognition on just how each choice will affect me. If I'm going to have the choice to be evil, neutral, or good, I'd like to know clearly what I get from each choice. If I'm a mage and I choose an evil path, then I'm given a knife and a thief hoody as a reward, I'm going to wish I'd chosen a different path that would hopefully have given me something I can actually use.


This applies to responses to NPCs as well. I'd like to know how they're going to react. Sometimes, the tough army veteran dude will get angry at me if I say something too soft, so I should say something badass and rude to get his respect. Other times, he'll just get angry if I try to be badass. There's really no way of me knowing for sure how the NPC is going to react...and if saying the wrong thing permanently makes that character hate me, I'm going to be pretty irritated if I make the wrong choice.

When I played Fallout 3, I would take so long just to make a choice on which quest path to take, or which conversation path to take, because I was constantly quick-saving and loading to try different things and see what happened...
