    I suppose I'm a bit biased.

    I remember when the split happened (though not what was the exact reason Ausir went that way), and I was always favoring The Vault for being a traditionalist. If the info I was seeking wasn't there, I could live without it. I never was one to linger on those sites to consume the trivia anyway, but simply checking some details when ever the need arose.

    (I remember years ago few people had a habit on learning all that shit almost "cover to cover", but they'd not really understood what they had read, just bragged with the amount of trivial knowledge in their heads.)

    Wikisurfing. It's a thing. The only thing more mindlessly addicting to most people is surfing TVTropes. Seriously, that site will ruin your life.

    Yes, this. Forever and always, "follow the money." I know it's not cool to like FO3 and all, but this is why there isn't and will never be (to my knowledge) a patch to make FO3 playable on newer PCs. There's no profit to be made from it.

    I love the YouTube video in the first post of this thread. I agree with all of it wholeheartedly, and yet...I still love the characters so much, despite the game's shittiness. Colonel Autumn and Uncle Leo and that idiot Butch and all the ghouls in Underworld--not their fault they're written into a shitty game.

    Yup, its the fault of the developers. realistically those characters "don't exist" and are nothing more than an extension of the developers creativity. Sometimes developers stuck in a rough spot find ways to let some light shine through. Which I find adds a great deal of soul and love to a game. But alas, the brown smears on everything kind of make it a moot point. I'm sure everyone knows the saying, "you can't polish a turd".
