They both stink as I am an argonian so if I choose stormcloaks they will probably kick me out of skyrim after I help them defeat the imperials, but the imperials would have cut off my damn head if that dragon hadn't interrupted them, so it's choosing the lessee of two evils.

Just think, as an Argonian, you can show your species' and culture's worth to the people of Skyrim and shed the preconceived ideas that hold your people back.

IMO, the Argonians could probably wipe out both groups.

I don't know how other people feel, but I couldn't play any character who couldn't get over the fact that someone would kill him to be certain of putting down a rebellion. Can't help thinking "man up" whenever I hear people talk about this.

Neither. Join the Thalmor instead.

Nice so when you get arrested in real life for a crime you didn't commit you can tell yourself at least they thought they were stopping a serial rapist as you rot in jail and get butt probed by big bubba.

I wish this game was made by Obsidian, you could kick the door in and take out both charismatic and likable leaders, with a companion who is just as full of personality at your side.

Instead in this game we get immortal cardboard cut outs with personalities of paper bags.

I agree, kinda. I mean, almost being executed was never an issue for me. I do believe it is wrong and hints at the corruption within the Empire but it was never a motivation to join the Stormcloaks.

Now, freedom of life, freedom of religion and to end the Thalmor oppression, those are the things that motivated me.

Comparing apples and lemons? Have fun with that.

No comparing virtual apples to real apples

Do yourself a favour and never become a greengrocer. If you think those two scenarios are comparable, you've clearly taken a serious blow to the head during infancy.
