I'd like to see a game that features some aspect of the D&D 3.0 alignments. Fallout 3 and the like don't account for lawful or chaotic characters, and the games that do are in fact D&D games. I'm thinking there's got to be something between the two.

The traditional D&D alignment matrix makes particular sense for video games, I think. I've always decried it as simplistic for pen and paper, when you have, you know, a [i]human brain[/i] to handle things like NPC reactions and player character morality and motivations. But in a computer game it's important to be able to quantify that sort of thing, and nine buckets gives a much more satisfying illusion than two of covering the moral spectrum.

Which begs the question, why don't more games do it?
