Nahh, you just need to be a creative genius like me.
For example, you become a living sentient cursed weapon. You get to choose what kind of weapon you are, like a sword, shield or even a armor. You get to spend points on abilities and powers which makes you desirable as a weapon. For example, your edge can fire razor sharp waves of energy if the user supplies you with mana, wounds caused by your edge won't close, any damage your wielder inflicts on others heals them or you as a weapon grows stronger for each life you take (effect is permanent).
But to get points you must first choose drawbacks, which will make you undesirable as a weapon, you are a cursed weapon after all. The idea is that the drawbacks would effect the wielder after long time use. For example slowly transforming the wielders body (growing bigger tits, becoming a girl or turning into loli), full possession of the wielder.
There could also be some options that are half boons and half drawbacks. For example when your wielder uses you their sense of pain is numbed (it's good, but it also is kind of scary for the wielder), making them more bloodthirsty, making them horny, making them feel sexual pleasure as they kill others or you could assume control of your wielder after they give you permission and you fight like a god for a limited time .
The main mechanic of this theoretical CYOA would be to have a higher "Desirability" than "Scariness". The idea is that you get "Desirability" through powers and "Scariness" through drawbacks. Like if you are not tempting to use and powerful, no one in their right mind would use you. Yeah and there would also be a wielder section, like you get to choose your wielder and they would all have different "Tolerance levels", some more desperate than others.
