    what's with these people that come on here, get post counts up to like 3000 within a few months then disappear. That's a lot of posting.

    For real. I’ve been here a year and some change and I don’t think I’ve cracked 1,000 yet

    Since we’re back here, I have a question: Let’s say you were a person living in the fallout universe. Be honest, would you like mutants or not?

    Depends on how well they taste.

    They'd repulse me I'm sure (or intimidate in the case of Supers) but I wouldn't have any real reason to discriminate against them unless they were actively harmful like a Glowing One. So I'd probably be casually anti-mutant in that I'd swerve out of the way of them and prefer not to associate, but I wouldn't be there nailing up the "No Mutants Allowed" sign.

    I would probably dislike being around ghouls, but I could live with it. I would probably be terrified around super mutants, but I could live with it. Centaurs? Too far.

    I also do like an idea from one of the earlier messages, that Fallout 3 and 4 should be rebuilt from the ground up around the other games. I've been thinking the same thing for a while.

    I would probably rename them to sound more like spin-offs, then rename Van Buren and New Vegas to 3 and 4. Of course I would have to fix inconsistencies between the two, but it's easy enough. I've mentally fixed quite a few.

    I consider them as fully human, as they were born that way, can't reproduce.
    Beside, considering then as non human would mean that the mutants in the real world aren't humans, which would be very offensive.

    Took me 7 years to write the first post.

    Many real-life mutations or malformations seem more extreme than those depicted in the Fallout universe.

    How many supermutants and ghouls do you guys estimate there are?

    Absolutely.



    But you didn't answer the question. How many Supermutants do you know?

    I assumed your question was rhetoric, considering there isn't much a choice of answers, so i went straight to my point.

    Not sure if I've brought it up before, but non-super mutants are truly under-represented in Fallout.

    Harold and...Some one other guy in FO1 are strange mutated creatures which AREN'T ghouls or supermutants.

    It would have been nice to have strange skinned...'people'...having to live in the post apocalyptical society.

    Maybe even due to their unique mutations they end up having pretty decent roles in a town, or such.

    Oh wait, Bethesda would just give them some generic name like "The Mutated" and give them zombie-esque AI.

    Yeah, that's actually a good point.

    It's like, in the world prior to Fallout 1, there were a whole bunch of just unstable mutants going around that nobody was quite sure what they were, because they hadn't been refined in the VATs properly.

    It'd absolutely be fun to see more of them.
