Have to admit that I'd never heard of the Black & White game. Checked it out, and found this bit from the FAQ particularly intriguing:

"In Black & White you can be the god you want to be. Will you rule with a fair hand, making life better for your people? Or will you be evil and scare them into prayer and submission? No-one can tell you which way to be. You, as a god, can play the game any way you choose."

"Is it better to be good or evil?"

"It makes no difference. If you kill all your followers, that’s very evil and you will suffer because you’ll have fewer people praying to you. But there are many ways to be evil without causing death. Being evil makes your tribes worship you harder through fear, but being good means that you’ll have people worshipping through happiness, so either is good."

Oooo, one gets to play GAWD! Gawd in the strictest biblical sense, at that!

Makes a change from playing Satan, in which one doesn't give a crap whether people worship you or not -- through fear or through good. :)
