well hey hey! That could be another option, if and only if you have said explosives. Blowing up the train/ derailing it could be another option... but trains tend to be occupied by some sort of conductor dont they? hmmm..... well maybe there is one, maybe there isnt. With explosives, the option to only maybe possibly kill someone becomes available.Nephilim wrote:On a more serious note, these kind of moral situations feel so painfully shoe horned in I'd rather not see them.
Hmm.. point taken. Assuming there's something like an intelligence stat, perhaps more options become available to the character that can think quickly and outside the box? like the one above being available based on what you currently have in your inventory, more options could be added based on intelligence, catering to the character's morality preference in the game (kill them all, save them all)
There is a far off speeding train that is out of control. Tied to the tracks is are about five or six people. You do not have enough time to go down and untie them. You are standing on a bridge that goes over the train tracks. Standing on the bridge with you is a fat man.. a very very fat man. If you push him off the bridge and onto the tracks, the fat man will die and you will have murdered him, but his massive girth will stop the train thus saving the people tied to the tracks. If you dont push the fat man, you are leaving all of those poor helpless people to their fate, letting them all die which is close to murder.
