Once again I come back to GTA to resume the mission. This time, my first mission is "Sweet's Girl". Sweet and his girlfriend is surrounded by the Seville, and I have to control CJ to get him out of trouble. Fair enough, I thought it was simply a fetch and run type of mission.
I couldn't be more wrong. The game does not allow Sweet to come out until all the Seville who are surrounding his place are eliminated. I was faced with a choice between killing several people from another gang, saving Sweet and his girlfriend, and ignoring the mission and spare the lives of those people. Obviously, to continue with the mission, I was forced to go with the first choice.
Had it be a real choice in the real world though, I'm puzzled as to what would be the ethical answer. Do you kill several people to save your brother and his girlfriend, or do you value multiple lives over one life?
