Unlike avatars, as seen in RPGs like the Elder Scrolls and Mass Effect, we can’t fully control the actions/emotions of our playable characters, and as such, we often hope that the path our hero takes is done under a morally-acceptable light. In other words, we hope that they don’t do things associated with vigilantes, antiheroes, or villains, like killing innocents or causing unnecessary destruction.

Sometimes, however, this simply isn’t possible and the hero ends up acting immorally, either because they are forced to (Altair) or accidentally do so (Spec Ops: The Line’s Captain Walker).
