Alter Ego.

A pretty interesting game released in the 1980's and was converted to work on the internet.
http://www.playalterego.com/

The "game" starts off with a nice little screen of a baby in a womb.




And straight afterwards you get your first choices, and yes, even straight away, the wrong choice can impact badly. For example.






Fast-forward to childhood, and here is an example of one of the deaths that can happen if you don't put some thought into it.








Despite the game being from the 80's (thus, A LOT of the pop-culture references being outdated. e.g. Dog collar necks and some strange hairstyles.) it still relates well  to modern life.
It'll probably take an hour or so away from you if you get lost in it, and you should really play it lots of times.


There's even an Ipod app running around with the same name.

I recommend if you start playing this that you turn on some music, it's helps quite a lot with playing it.
