Hehe, I know that I'm pretty much alone with this opinion.
But the thing is, I don't work that way. I like to play good games again but I play it my way and I cannot bring myself to do things differently than I did on my first playthrough.
Do I make sense?
I will always solve a quest the same way, because I believe it's the right way and I cannot bring myself to try different ways. I cannot, say, play an evil character - it's just not my nature.
Or say there is a choice between two missions. I will always choose the same mission because I think that one is more important.
And because of this I hate branching paths, because I always have this nagging feeling that I haven't seen everything a game has to offer.
I know, I'm strange.
