Oblivion Drug Parody Highlights Awkwardness of RPG Dialogue System
Don’t do drugs. Seriously. They are bad for you. But you know what’s good for you? Laughter. That’s why we do recommend that you watch the video below. It probably won’t be as funny unless you’ve played Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, but you can fill in the gaps in your background knowledge sufficiently, I imagine. Because you’re a Journeyman of filling in the gaps in your background information. Without spoiling it: A dialogue system in which one’s only options are “admire,” “joke,” “coerce,” and “boast” is going to lead to some weird, awkward conversations.
No more! You’re frightening me.
