I agree re TV episodes, but I think in games the problem is not space, it's point of view. You can't ask a player to actually inhabit a character who's expected to have really fundamentally different sympathies from themselves. You can, if you're a good game writer, develop NPCs who effectively and empathetically portray radically different viewpoints though, I think games are a potentially good medium for that if you can get over or circumvent the issues with the player character and their moral code.


For an example of the above see Caesar of Caesar's Legion in Fallout: New Vegas. The dude is an absolute monster but his rationale is very logical and whatever. You still go away from meeting him thinking 'Wow, he's a psychopath' but also there's the understanding of where that kind of cruelty and drive for obedience comes from.
