Mining My Own Business: Space Asshole

Griefing in a single player game may seem slightly self-defeating, but in a game like Red Faction: Guerilla it's just so incredibly tempting. A game that makes everything but the ground itself destructible and then gives you a giant hammer is asking for trouble - when you realise you can smash up your own bases, including their inhabitants, it becomes a battle with your own consciousness not to constantly destroy it, ally moral be damned.
