Right. I can think of a number of games as well that gives you a moral
direction besides DND.

For example, Star Wars Jedi Knight was one such game. You played the
part of an aspiring Jedi Knight, Kile Katern, and you could select
your moral alignment from light side, dark side, or neutral. If you
were a light side character there were plenty of people you could
help, save, and you would try to kill as few enemies as possible by
using Jedi Force tricks like distract or blind them long enough to
escape. If you wanted to be a dark side character you gained points by
killing everything and everyone you see. A neutral character simply
killed only direct enemy threats and ignored the NPC characters that
were in distress or needed help. Quite frankly the neutral character
alignment roll was you don't give a care what happens to them. So in
that way I think the game suited just about everyones preference as
you didn't have to be an especially evil or immoral character to get
through the game, and a light sider would avoid confritation and
violence were the immoral character thrived on it.
