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.

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 myself like to play lightside, but I can also go through either game darkside.

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.

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

What?

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!
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

DARK SIDE!!!!!!!

If you think otherwise, I would recommend that you stop taking drugs every day, and go to therapy an hour a day for twenty years.

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

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

well, i do lightside first because it tends to somewhat agree with the way i am personally.

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

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.

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:

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).

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:
