Fallout: New Vegas, The new Karma system

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I have a great idea that you've never seen before...My idea is: You can choose how your character thinks and explain to game WHY you did that action! Although it may sound simple and stupid at first, it's far more superior that that...It can be used in important Karma choices and can affect your Gained Karma greatly. Every time the player makes an important Karma choice a new option will appear that asks the player why he chose this, however it's can't be used *too* much because it can be boring...Here is an example of how it works:

Example #1:

[There is an slave dying in front of you, you can either save him or kill him]

Dialog choice:

1. You should now be able to continue working. (Heal Him)
2. You should die. (Kill Him)
-------------------------------------------------------

Choice 1 brings up this Dialog choices(Thoughts):

1. [ Yeah! Work and get tortured! I'd love to see you suffer!!! (-70 Karma)]
2. [I know you will suffer but I can't kill you. (Neutral)]
3. [Get up, you must live...maybe you'll be free someday. (+20 Karma)]

Choice 2 brings up this dialog choices(Thoughts):

1. [Die you weak freak!!! (-85 Karma)]
2. [You're now free...Rest in peace. (+5 Karma)]
==============================================

Example #2:

[Your best friend betrayed you and you've defeated him, you can now spare him or kill him]

Dialog choice:

1. I...I can't do this! You've betrayed me but I won't kill you. (Spare Him)
2. You'll pay for this!!! (Kill Him)

Choice 1 brings up this dialog choices(Thoughts):

1. [You've [censored] me but I'll give another chance (+50 Karma)]
2. [You live but I'll never forgive you (+25 Karma)]
3. [I...I can't! (+10 Karma)]

Choice 2 brings up this dialog choices(Thoughts):

1. [No one [censored]s with me! (-60 Karma)]
2. [You've betrayed me and I have the rights to kill you. (-5 Karma)]
3. [I can't let you do this to another one! (Neutral)]
==========================================

What I have in mind is FAR more complicated and advanced than that, but that's just an example to see is it good or no...

That would be interesting but it would also screw with the new system Obsidian has already installed.

Trust me they completely revamped the Karma system. IT should be much harder to maintain good Karma now.

lol in Fallout 3 I could waste any mother -beep-er I wanted to and my Karma was fine if I bugged out afterwards, chillaxed for three days and gave some water to a beggar or donated to a priest. Noone seemed to care

Fun but unrealistic.
