If you could be anything or anyone in Fallout, what would it be?

    The idea of "FREEEDUUMZ over everything!" is the kind of thing only someone living in a first world country with all the basic needs plus luxuries fullfilled would think is viable.

    Also how are taxes worse than getting killed by Raiders?

    Oh no, I don't give a shit about the freedom part. I just want my own robot army. And the game presents a choice: serve under a guy with a robot army or be​ the guy with the robot army. Any playthrough I had that endied in independent Vegas, the Courier didn't care about the other people.

    I would choose to be a very intelligent behemoth cowboy that wields a .45 revolver.

    A mercenary working for a small Private Security group out of the Carolina wastelands that were mostly untouched by nuclear weapons with the exception of Greensboro and Charlotte.

    Let's face it. Most of us would be just dried corpses. Internet generation is not suited to live in such a world.

    If the Enclave (or at least any omnicidal superweapon of their making) never existed, then Richard Grey with fertile Super Mutants.

    Failing that, Robert House, who made his secret elevator operated by a remote and completely inaccessible without it. Even better would be House in a world where the war happened on 24.10.2077, but that would be greedy.

    But Grey is much better, because he looks like a living Gore Bag.

    I'm with Walpknut here. Most freedom lovers are from first world countries. I know friends who used to live in third world areas, mainly the Middle East who tell me to fuck myself every time I make a joke about freedom being better then a good life. Trust me, it's not.

    So am I. I was just throwing in a quote from everybody's favourite post-apocalyptic moral authority to make it sound more legit.

    Maybe not THE favourite, but you gotta admit Lou's got a cool voice. That's practically morality. And he's the leader of Grey's army - so he's got authority. Thus, moral authority.

    The full quote is:
    "But what about free will?"
    "Did you make the choice to be born into this ash covered world? We, the Super Mutants, are the best prepared for the world to come. What is free choice compared to life?"

    I like to think I'd be a good person trying to help people, so probably someone like the Followers of the Apocalypse, naive maybe, but ultimately trying to make the world a better place through the spread of knowledge and technology.

    But...if I'm gonna full roleplay here, probably a Mr Kurtz Heart of Darkness figure. Basically Caesar or Joshua Graham. A "civilised" man who walks into the wastes and takes control of the tribes that had developed there.

    As someone else said though, if I tried that, I'd probably be dead in the first ten minutes, most likely from one scorpion sting.

    Brotherhood of Steel. Safe training, over powered gear and technical knowledge to match. All you need is that career background and the wasteland is your slave.

    Yes, someone physically indoctrinated WOULD do everything in their power to make a case against freedom of choice. It doesn't matter what kind of environment you live in, freedom to determine your own personal outcomes IS the preferable alternative. The fact that some people feel pressured into giving that up doesn't change that fact. Countless people in the Middle East were forced to join ISIS because they felt that it was either that, or starvation. Was that really the only set of choices available to them? No, but that is all that they could see. Maybe you can't blame them for making their choices, and maybe we should be more empathetic to the crushing realities of more desperate situations not matching our expectancies of luxuries. But these still WERE choices made of free will.

    I work out every day. I'd survive the Fallout conditions when it comes down to it.

    Doubt it. Do you have weapon training, survival training and the like. It's not just being fit.

    I'd be able to run for a while. Not sure if I'd bother, in a Fallout reality, I wouldn't really want to live.

    I just wanna point out that there will be no Internet in post apocalypse. Are you guys sure that you would like to survive?

    EDIT: Damn, ninja'd.
