Which side do you most like playing
on the 'LightSide of the Force' or on the 'DarkSide of the Force'??

I like playing on the DarkSide of the Force it's really satisfing!!
(like being Evil :naughty: )

I tried playing darkside bu just couldn't go through with it. . .

You should have turned this into a poll. It would have been eaisier to keep track of responses.

Anyways, I like playing dark side on my first try and the light side on my second. If you play both sides, then you can experience more of the game.

I usually play through the game as a grey jedi, then at the end choose light. (on my first playthrough)

next playthrough I usually go dark all the way.

The problem with playing as gray jedi is that you can't get any prestige classes.

08-28-2005, 12:37 PM
True, but that doesn't mean you can't gain lightside points, gain a prestige class, and then balance yourself out with darkside points ;) that's what I always do when I get to level 15.

I play all ways...male and female, LS and DS. Then I add mods and do it again. I have played every permutation there is. What's really cool about these games is for each way you play there are more details to discover. I have to say that DS is more fun, but LS is more of a challenge. It's much easier to get experience and alignment points playing DS. Another interesting thing is that these games actually make me feel bad for doing DS things. You can get totally immersed in these games. I tried playing neutral once, but I found it uninteresting and there was no prestige class.

Always lightside.

Once in K1, when the guy is getting pushed around by Daviks men, I chose the DS dialogue. Carth actually made me feel bad..............
I wanted to try to play DS, but like Mira Dona and Bastilla, I just couldn't go through with it.

Damn the power of these pixelated people!

I'm usually light side. I did a couple DS games for K1, but I never played DS all the way through for TSL. It seemed more like I was a thug than a Sith Lord. But I have played the ending as DS (just loaded a save and cheated).

I normally like to test out both to see which I find better. Light side seems to be easier because as in KOTOR II you don't have to kill any Jedi if you are Light side. The Dark side is harder i think, but they have the better force powers! But i'd go with the Light side.

Damn the power of these pixelated people!

This is why I think that KotOR was so amazing.
For every 5 LS playthroughs, I play one DS, sometimes less.

Often, I just tell myself:"I can't do this, I'm not a horrible person. This is just terrible!"

However, sometimes, DS options do make me laugh, like those thugs who committed suicide on NarShaddaa after I used Mind Trick on them :lol:

What?

Blaze629
08-29-2005, 01:18 AM
Well for the KOTOR series I ALWAYS go dark before light. I just have more fun doing it that way ESPECIALLY in TSL because of the prestige classes. In other series like Jedi Academy though, I felt MUCH more compelled to stay in the light. I guess it just depends on the series or game I'm playing in my case.

I've beaten half of TSL as DS female but it got boring after a while. I also did DS once in KOTOR near the end to see the alternate ending ^^

Propaganda! :xp:
I usually do LS first then DS, DS is more fun in the sense that you can do whatever you want but LS is more fun because you have that warm fuzzy feeling inside you saying you did something good :)

I only do DS if I want that uber mega strong evil feeling inside me :darth:

Face it... You just can't compare to the Dark Side of the Force. Light Side? Come on... :dozey:

08-30-2005, 02:50 AM
the first time thru i just make the choices that i would actually make, instead of always looking for the most light/dark points. following this strategy i came out as a Lightsider in Kotor and TSL. Then i'll play a darkside game, so i can see what the other ending is, try the darkside versions of quests, and in TSL try out Hanharr. every other time i play thru after that is lightside

stingerhs
08-30-2005, 03:59 AM

then i go full on darkside because i enjoy being evil. :dev7:

I would like to play DS more, but I think DS is flawed from a storyline point of view - I don't think a Sith would go around making conversation with people, and trying to play while thinking "what would a Sith do" means you miss a lot of sidequests and dialogue with NPCs. Like someone said above you also end up being more of a thug than a Sith. It's also hard to believe a Sith and Mira or Disciple can be in the same ship without a fight breaking out, especially since you can't really seduce them to DS so they don't complain when you kill people.

I only ever play DS in KOTOR 1 because there you can go LS for most of the game, and then start going DS after you know the truth on the Leviathan and then finally snap on the Rakatan temple roof. It makes sense, and is actually why I like the "one decision decides all" approach to LS / DS in KOTOR 1, as opposed to the more gradual approach in TSL.

08-30-2005, 05:54 AM
I have played both games as light and dark and I have come to the same conclusion for both. The conclusion is the same as nas77, namely:

I would like to play DS more, but I think DS is flawed from a storyline point of view - I don't think a Sith would go around making conversation with people, and trying to play while thinking "what would a Sith do" means you miss a lot of sidequests and dialogue with NPCs. Like someone said above you also end up being more of a thug than a Sith.
This I agree with. Both games are written with a LS base and then added DS responses to encounters and dialogues (even more apparent in TSL). Playing DS never felt like I was really playing dark. But playing LS indeed felt like a Jedi on a quest.

Then in TSL the DS storyline is even more full of holes than the LS. It doesn't make sense and it gets annoying. The in-game reasoning for going DS is... just... badly written... I could even go so far as saying stupid (but that could probably be just a matter of taste).

It's also hard to believe a Sith and Mira or Disciple can be in the same ship without a fight breaking out, especially since you can't really seduce them to DS so they don't complain when you kill people.

This also is very annoying in TSL, because of the influence. At least in K1 there was no influence so the characters always spoke their mind. But in TSL even with full DS INF they will still feel sorry for people you kill and berate you. They do have a DS response in dialogue once or twice but other than that, the INF meter is nothing more than that - a meter.

I normally do a lightside run first, since I think you get to see more of the game, instead of just killign somebody after the second dialogue. Next I do the darkside run.

All in all I prefer the lightside, dunno, I suppose I'm just too nice to do the darkside with satisfaction....

Interestingly they have included a way to convert Mira and Disciple to dark jedi if you have enough influence as a darksider. I found this out because I have a mod that grants me influence. I wonder why they did that? You shouldn't be able to convert them at all if playing as a darksider, considering that you lose influence with them when you do DS stuff.

Yeah I know, it's rubbish. If I do play as DS I always make sure I get influence with Handmaiden and turn her into a dark jedi (I think she looks better DS than LS, but maybe that's just me). When she decides to learn the ways of the Force she can even agree to "following a stronger, darker path", or something, and you are told she's a "dark jedi guardian." But she still bangs on about the sanctity of life every time I kill someone! Arrrrgh. Talk about an unruly apprentice.

Ugh, in KOTOR 3 they need to make it so that this:

I play as both but I think the problem is there isn't enough variety between the two. Sure you get a different ending for DS and LS but the quests are the same or similar. It would be cool if in KOTOR III you only got certain quests if you were DS, the same goes for LS. Also it would be neat to have cretain planets and storylines only open to DS or LS characters. I know TSL had some of that were you could only get Hanharr if you were DS and influence was gained with some only through DS actions, but I would like to see a big difference between being DS and LS. Being an enlightened Jedi in tune with the force is a hell of alot different than being a twisted, corrupt evil bastard.

I totally agree with you. It really does make sense, playing each side does have different goals (or should at any rate) and this should be reflected in actions and quests. However, that being said, I hope they do make a better way to be dark in K3 other than just being an a-hole.

In the words of Kyle Katarn: "No power is inherently good or evil. It's how you use them." e.g. there's nothing evil about using Force Lightning to kill a Sith who's about to slaughter someone else.

That may be true in general, but for the purpose of these two games, it's a dark side power, it's labeled as such, it costs less to use it when you are dark side, and if you are using the auto-level option you don't even get the power unless you are dark side.

That being said, the urge/need/want to use a violent power like force lightning to crush your enemies is a dark side feeling. You can fall to the dark side crushing enemies with glee and enjoyment, no matter your original alignment. OK, maybe not in these two games but in the rest of the SW universe.

Please remember the most important rule about the force as an old wise one once stated: :D

"A jedi uses the force for knowledge and defense. NEVER for attack."

Although Force push could arguably be considered an attack, it is not a malicious attempt to kill, maim, or permanently harm another being. This is the only power that Lucas himself can see a light jedi using frequently. All dark side powers cause injury and death. Lucas himself has said that light jedi do not use these powers due to the temptation and lust for power that it can bring about.

Right on Blaze629.

Also I like to play as a dark consellor/Sith Lord. I don't have Lord at the front of my name for nothing. Hopefully they will have more options to corrupt people in KOTOR III. It was fun to turn Atton to the dark side. Plus that's what Sith Lords do corrupt people and then use them to carry out their plans of galatic domination. Thats what Sidious did with Anaken/Vader and that is where the fun is.

This is the biggest problem in TSL, though it was not much better in K1. It was actually worse, because nobody really cared if you were DS and nobody said anything, even though you looked like a zombie. In K2, even some non-party members comment on your face.

Now, what they should do in K2 is to change their responses when you turn them to the dark side. That would solve everything. It would be possible to make a mod like this. We would need the same voice actors however, which we sadly cannot get.

Absolutely light side. Dark side might have more "powerful powers", DarkMe, but as Prime said, that is only if you equate hurting people with power. Lightside powers are powerful too, they aren't nothing-what about Heal? It heals you with a lot of vitality points and cures poison. Drain Life doesn't do that, not to mention that DL is variable on how much you get depending on how good the enemy is, AND you have to be in combat to use it. How about Force Enlightenment? Or Statis Field, makes everybody stunned and helpless?

I agree that force powers are only how you use it to a certain point, although I am not sure Crushing Sith is exactly lightside, but then again, is slicing somebody's head off with a lightsaber lightside:lol:.

Also, Valor, Speed, Armor, and others gives you a tremendous amount of power to your self, because as far as power: Dark Side hurts other people, Light Side gives yourself power- simply put, you could say that Dark Side: damage, Light Side: buffs. I would probably take the "buffs" because even if you can Crush a ton of people, it doesn't matter if they are good lightsaber fighters and get to you finally. Doesn't matter one bit, because if the only thing you can do is hurt them and do nothing for yourself, then they will tear you up. That is why you are going to need some lightside powers to increase your own abilities.

Oh, and by the way, the Dark Side is about being arrogant and greedy, but it is about being an @$$ too (well, it depends what you consider being an A$$)... And it is about being cruel, Sith are self-centered, who ever heard of a nice, kind old Sith?

Only your idea of the Dark side... but that is a topic for another thread. :)

who ever heard of a nice, kind old Sith?
It all depends on what 'face' you want to show other people, you can win far more dedicated minions by playing the kinder gentler person, you have to lay out planned events to make your "freinds" see things your way so when you finally reveal yourself as a Lord of the Sith your companions will be confident in that they know who you are, and are loyal to your cause which has now become their cause too, it takes a ton of time and effort to pull this off, but it is worth it in the long run... ;)

Well, about the "nice, kind old Sith", the fact is, there isn't one. Maybe you would show a false face to someone, but in that case they wouldn't think of you as a Sith. A real Sith is not kind inside. That is probably why I always play LS, I just can't do all these evil things because that is the way I am.

And I never understood that quote. "Only a Sith deals in absolutes"? I just don't get that, when somebody says anything (Absolutely LS) they are saying an absolute, right? And what about the statement itself, it is an absolute in that case.

Both with Kotor I and II I played with LS first but then tried with DS as well (oh the temptation :snake1: ), and it's quite satisfying either way, tho I agree with those who wrote that the DS side is more thuggish than lordish... Kotor 2 DS playthrough still remains, let's see how can I influence Visas this time :trooper:

If "Only a Sith deals in absolutes" then Obi Wan is a Sith by virtue of claiming that "...Palpatine is evil!" as good and evil are of course absolutes. But why would you want to sully Star Wars dialogue by submitting it to a test of logic? :D

I'm a light-sider myself, though i often take the fear/horror/insanity course instead of stun/stasis/stasis field, since horror affects multiple enemies at 6th level rather than having to wait for stasis field at 15th, and also has a longer duration.

i definitely agree that being yelled at by my party members prevents me from wanting to go DS most of the time, and though my female pc sure did look sexxxy when she first fell to the darkside, she got reeeeeeeeeeal ugly by the end of the game. Most of the dark side powers are meh anyway; Plague and Force Kill aren't worth the time it takes to get to them, and Force Storm makes the game pretty boring when every fight is composed of FORCE STORM FORCE STORM FORCE STORM FORCE STORM.

though i did like Force Crush (since it does what i THOUGHT Kill would do), I'd rather have Force Enlightenment, which is by far my favorite power in the game.

I played the first time LS, then did a DS file. I most often do LS files.

Btw those who say that LS is weak should play against my LS Jedi Guardian/Jedi Weapon Master with max Speed, Force Armor, Master Battle Meditation, Force Immunity etc... and have Master Lightsaber throw and Force Wave (btw Force Wave is teh greatness), noone could stop her by the end ;]

I always Do Light side stuff first, (Play too Many Paladins in too many games)
But then I of course run through as a Darksider as well to get
the feel from it as well. And Lets face it...Most times traveling the
dark side just easier!

But we all know that, Yoda told us!

I've done DS a few times on 1 but haven't even tried on 2 yet, simply because I like having the whole galaxy love you stead of goin "OMG SITH RUN!!"

That, plus DSers get all gray and ugly.

i like the fact you unleash ur full power when ur on the darkside, but u shud be on the darkside all time untill u feel board then just switch to light, that way you get to play more of the game.

I think from my avatar you can tell its the darkside all the way.I have tried the light side but i get bored and have to destroy things and people. :mauls:
i like ur style, u sound like an opponent that i jus may want to vs.


my message to all lightsiders is:
i am plague of darkness that spreads all over, i contaminate the light like a uncurable disease, there is no light at the end of the tunel just more darkness, i draw strength from lightside mother****ers by stealing their puny ass lives. i am a virus that can never be detected, when u step to my side of force, there is no coming back

Hey Darth Swish, next time, combine all of those posts instead of putting 5 posts in a row. There is an edit button at the lower right corner of your posts, there you can change things.

Oh yeah, and why go DS until you get bored and go LS? Why not just go LS until you get bored and go DS, it works the same way. It is not better just to DS first.

I play almost all combinations possible, but light side first. Personally, I would be half up the lightside bar.

LS first for me, and generally most of the games. I play an occassional DS just to get the different comments and to see how how the game gets altered.

I always play LS. But i'm a bit unorthodox since I choose the LS dialogue and stuff, but then I spend most of my Force Power Points on DS powers (mainly lighting, grip, destroy droid - all of the (multiple) attack ones, not any of the debilitating ones), then spend the rest on LS, and I always choose heal asap for force powers. I must just like electrical storms! :D

@ Spawn: I'm your total opposite :) i can only play LS. I did in Neverwinter Nights, Kotor 1&2, and recently Fable :p

I also spend much points into lightning and grip, since it's much more efficient then any light-side power. Also, combined with a high Charisma and Wisdom, the penalty ain't that bad at all :)

I play all ways...male and female, LS and DS. Then I add mods and do it again. I have played every permutation there is. What's really cool about these games is for each way you play there are more details to discover. I have to say that DS is more fun, but LS is more of a challenge. It's much easier to get experience and alignment points playing DS. Another interesting thing is that these games actually make me feel bad for doing DS things. You can get totally immersed in these games. I tried playing neutral once, but I found it uninteresting and there was no prestige class.

Quoted from laziness.
LS to start usually.
But, I love to experience falling to the darkside.

Makes me feel naughty.

The first time i play Kotor I II and maybe some day III i will always play the game as i think i really am. So in the game i react different from time to time and in Kotor I i end up with beeing a gray jedi nearer to the light side.
After that i play totally Dark and totally Light.
But i always learn certain force powers which i really love like force kill, force lightning (not storm.. i dont like the storm animation) force wave and master speed. IMO it matters how u use your forcepowers...no matter if they are DS or LS.

I enjoy playing DS but not because i want to feel evil but because it is so funny to play DS with all the comments from HK-47. Bioware/obisidan introduced creative ways to be an evil killer ! :thumbsup:

The DarkSide is much more POWERFULL than the light
when you are Dark you have the most and the most
Powerfull Powers!!! Lightning, crush, drain, kill...... and the
list goes on and on.......
(light is nothing)

Some people may find this... unacceptable. A true jedi guardian with force enlightment and some more light support powers can easily kill anyone using those not-so-powerfull at all powers, they just seem more tempting, but they aren't stronger.

hey just seem more tempting, but they aren't stronger.

Just like the Dark Side itself... do not be seduced.

Uh oh. For me, I'm a lightsider. I keep wanting to try the darkside, but it fails. No hope for me of going to the darkside unless I play Medal of Honor.
