It happens. Love is a crazy thing.. I had a friend who quit doing drugs just because her boyfriend asked, and last year i met someone who robbed a store for his girlfriend.. These things happen.. Love is a strong motivator...It's different to influence someone's decisions than to influence someone's character & personality.
I'm rather against the latter. I want NPCs to have their own characters & motivations rather than the main protagonist being the-one-and-only surrounded by attention seekers ready to change their personalities on main protag's whim.
Not mentioning that changing your loved one's character doesn't happen in real life too often.
Most RPG games avoid the subject like a plague.. i think it could be an interesting concept to fallow. Assuming its done right. Only game i remember that had pregnancy was fable 3 and they could've done a better job...
Well personal feelings aside, in the setting pregnancy is a is a non-issue. I you want kinds(which to be honest I don't know why you would, especially in a cyberpunk setting) you'll have them. If not well, there are ways to take care if that, legal or not.
While i'm not against the idea, i agree its a bit problematic to handle in a game.. the he way i see it there are only two ways to do it:if you have a male character you could make a baby with a woman, but what will happen if you play a female character? Firefights with baby belly?
Lol. A pimp fixer has that advantage.I'd say to make it an option but nowhere in the realm of 'mandatory'--I'd be slightly uncomfortable with it if I had to deal with it in game. I wouldn't be interested in it per say, but I know there's people out there that are. Put it in, but don't make it a priority. Unless you're playing a pimp fixer, I guess.
How the hell did pregnancy and pimp fixers took ever this topicLol. A pimp fixer has that advantage.
Actually this gets closer to my point. I'm not as interested in influencing the companions as much as the companions actions influencing the player and making some story choices based on how you feel about them.It happens.

After all our discussions about this you say "no companions" again Sard? Did someone returned you to your factory settings again? It would be bad if that someone got caught in the hell of my tiny robot of doom!Or..even no companions? And romance a tattered complex affair that you try to fit in during the hectic events of the game? Like, say, in The WItcher 1 and 2?
