        You're probably being ironic, but it's something I fear in the game I'm making.
        Some answers don't really have any immediate obvious consequence, but they change how people see you, and there will be consequences to it later on. Depending on what you say in certain occasion, one npc who was with you back then might refrain from saying some stuff to you later on for example.
        But that's just too subtle, most gamers are too braindead and would just think that nothing matters because there isnt a [action] describing what will happen if you say something

          It's not a matter of stupidity, it's just what you come to expect from games. If dialog choices actually have subtle, indirect and / or delayed consequences, try to have some not so subtle indicators early on. Something that will really make the player go "oh, that dialog choice actually mattered".
          Consistency is also really important.

          There should be at least SOME change in dialogue to indicate that it's not an 'ignored' choice. Something as small as swapping "chilly" for "cold" is enough.

          It's not like you've got body language or facial expressions to go off in vidya, so if you want to show some mood you should at least find an alternate way of expressing that.
          Unless you're to autistic to read facial expressions or body language, in which case you probably have no clue what I'm talking about.

      But yes, while it has a difference, ultimately you are just staring at a dead person muttering words, you would think the medicine check would allow you to at least let her survive a few more minutes or something, but alas this is bethesda we are talking about

      There are no differences. You can't change the outcome since she always dies, you can't even react callously or indifferently to her death.

                Not 1 singular person EVER believed for 1 instant that "Starfield-chan" was a real NPC in the game.
                It was a simple case of 1 absolute schizo having a multi-week meltdown and spamming something while trying to pretend he was just doing it as an epic trolling game. Luckily for all of us, his schizo level was low enough that he eventually got tired and slinked back into the shadows, unlike other schizos who will literally post 20+ hours a day for decades on end.

    I like the fact that Starfield's story and characters are so fricking boring where if any of the NPC's died you wouldn't be bothered. But then they decided to add a feature where you can go to an alternative reality where they're back alive anyway so it makes it even more pointless.

    Roleplaying is precisely having multiple options for one path depending on your character.
    What they tried here is to have different personalities react differently to the same event. It's not quite good as they're all way too similar (and dumb since she's lying in a giant pool of blood, I don't need a high medicine level to notice she's fricking dead) but having multiple ways to follow the same story is the entire point of RPGs and immersive sims.
    I remember making a big viking outcast-lookint necromancer in GW2 and was really annoyed because my guy spoke like a generic human hero, so I rerolled to make a generic human warrior to fit the only existing personality given to every character. It's especially dumb in an MMO where you expect players to make a wide variety of characters.

    i'm not even asking for branching stories at this point, but at least let me choose how my character reacts to things or keep him mute with no dialogue options so i can just self insert.
    give me three options that are different reactions, like being sad, being angry or not caring at all, then the medicine option is something like you reanimating her for a few moments and you get to pick your last words to her.
    she dies anyway and the story goes as planned but at least i played my character and the game reacted to my build
