Actually, I didn't forget it, I ignored it because it assumes Moral Absolutism and that's silly (although it is very telling about those who believe in it). For example, the Far Cry mercenaries aren't bad, per se. They probably would far prefer you not be there, and they don't seem to be too concerned in taking over the world. They're mercenaries, out to make a quick buck. About the most morally repugnant thing they do is try and kill you because you're wasting their buddies and they're paid to do it. They certainly "deserve it". In fact, you could make the argument that you play as a mercenary in Soldier of Fortune. Now who's bad?

Isn't it silly arguing whether that's correct? That's why I didn't. It's a game. Forget this stupidness of deserving fate. You're shooting pixels on a screen. Or is shooting animal pixels on a screen different from shooting human pixels? Score one for anthropomorphizing, then.
