    Just now I stumbled on some text detailing certain in-game conversations between characters. I used to keep a list like that for Baldur's Gate II but I seem to have lost it. Often, in RPG's, there's several interesting dialogues involving some philosophy or quotes centered around general interest topics.

    Do you guys have interesting stuff to share? I found that KOTOR II has some interesting quotes as well (courtesy of that old lady that you partner up with). I think I've captured those as well and will post them later. There should not be any spoilers involved. Feel free to post anything, but I'd stray from bland oneliners (I'm looking at you, Duke!). As I will soon start another playthrough of the Mass Effect series, I'm also planning on writing some little paper about how the game handles leadership as the game blatently shows you good practices for displaying leadership skills. I think a part of the games in general can contribute to learning in the player. Lots of people dismiss the notion because the characters in the games are handling swords and guns and talk with little elves and aliens. But those are obviously just cosmetic things and are easily interchangeable with regular people. Games about real life will not sell well for obvious reasons.

    To start things off: This one for example is from The Witcher (1/2, I dunno), a conversation between protagonist Gerald and his dwarven companion around the meaning of life. I didn't caption the full context, but the message is clear enough.

    To elaborate a little on this: one of the things Mr. G wants to point out is how corruption isn't always perceivable and therefore hard to combat. It's not as it used to be: the ugly monsters there to kill you. All you had to do was slay them. Now it's become more complex and he's asking questions about his purpose in life. As the world changes, so too does the evil in it. Maybe he's right in the notion that moral relativity is the greatest evil nowadays. It would provide interesting discussions I'm sure.
