If you played it, who did you side with?
I sided with the Imperial Legion on my first play through.
Why? Was it an emotional decision, a philosophical one, or just because one seemed more fun?
I don't really remember. I think it had something to do with not liking Ulfric Stormcloak.
I need to play it again.
This is an original idea for a thread, but when it comes to video games, most decisions, at least in my case, come down to emotional quandaries. Although for some, I do suspect that they might consider political ramifications, or they may use their political opinions to choose their actions, but for most its the emotional aspects of morality that come into play.
Statistically, and yes there are statistics based on this, people choose the "Good/Paragon/Moral" action over the "Evil/Renegade/Immoral" one.
