I'm sure this isn't news for many, but after the natural feeling when you begin the game that your toon is essentially a good guy, even if they do unsavory things, it has been sinking in more and more that V is just a criminal. Of course, roleplaying you can moderate V's actions to make them mostly nice, but when it boils down: V is a hitman, and the targets aren't always really bad people. V is a thief. Not only during gigs, V goes into any house or business and shoplifts everything that isn't glued to the floor. V grabs anyone's car from the street. V commits cybercrimes. V commits horrendous massacres. Sure mostly they are bad guys and many deserve it, and the city is better without them. But others are just guards, cops or soldiers in a, let's say, justified mission. Sure, they sometimes are found around a crime scene but does that justify flatlining them all? There are some gigs where the victim is some 6th street or Valentino gangoon who stole something. The guards, Militech or Arasaka or whatever came in and finished him. Nothing different to what you do all day. Colleagues I would say.
You know I've pointed the Kiroshi at some friends and most have warrants! Panam has a long list. Judy is wanted for some minor disturbance and resisting arrest or something like that. I wonder what would V show if you could scan yourself?
