Sudden realization: In choice-based IF, I don't have to actually convince the player to do a thing. I can take it as a foregone conclusion that they did it and, to provide a sense of agency, ask them *why* they did it. This feels somehow like cheating.

@CarlMuckenhoupt This can also be a dark pattern in, e.g., advertising, interrogation, propaganda, software, etc.
