    Oh yeah, and something like the first time I played Fallout and I went to Vault 15, Ian killed me. You see, I tried to grab the ammo that was lying in the chill-out room (whatever it's called) on the third level. But Ian stayed close to me and blocked the way. I told him to go to a longer distance but he didn't move. So I tried attacking him with my 10mm pistol and no armour... I still hate him for killing me back then... :(

    Now every time I get caught stealing stuff from people and they start combat, I just attack Ian and then quick load the game again :P.

    But really, that's just a real mean thing to do, poor Ian :lol:

    I think Ian has long ago since established his reputation as a character that deserves anything and everything you could possibly think of doing to/with him. Unless it's something good or polite. :wink:

    "I'm sorry Ian, but I used all the 50 Rad-X's we had on myself... now if you don't mind, I'm gonna read some books and maybe play chess with this computer a couple of times... Btw, why do they call this the Glow?"

    New idea for a topic: Most original way to get back to Ian for literally shooting you in the back so many times...

    I did not notice when I leveled up either, it's great when you click it for the first time and can see that you have a lots of points to spend!

    But for me it took a long time before I learned how to enter cities, I thought it was very difficult.

    Done a thing quite similar.
    I left the worldmap and stood right in the middle of the desert, with no idea how to come back to the worldmap again.
    The same thing as I finished all Junktown missions and couldn't manage to leave the town. I just never recognized the gray (or brown) area 'cause my screen was adjusted a few points to dark.:roll: After that i read the manual and understood.

    I join the slavers.
    I slept with mrs. Bishop and forget to save before doing it.
    I killed a child and got bounty hunters after me.

    I got stuck in the Bishops with a leather jacket after I barely got out of the Salvatores alive. With a 10mm. Needless to say, I got my ass kicked.

    I made the HUGE mistake of giving Marcus grenades.

    The most newbie thing I did in Fallout:

    I worried too much.

    "Hmm... This Necropolis place and it's ghouls sound difficult..."
    "Oh my god! A deathclaw! I'm gonna die!"
    "The Master is going to be so tough..."

    Psyched myself right out for a while.

    Well, noobiest thing, I guess, is that I didn't realize I could "repair" the force fields. Lots of stimpacks.

    Judging from many of the replies in this thread, I just got to say: RTFM!!!

    Well, the n00best thing I did was when I played Fo1 for the first time. Of course I was to eager to start the game I didn't bother to make a char and took that cool russian chick (she has nice stats, you have to admit). On my way to Shady Sands I got attacked by a radscorpion. After emptying my 10mm and getting hurt pretty badly I attacked it with a... flare. Though that fire will scare him away.
    Well, I could say that the game isn't very realistic, but...
    the flare wasn't even lit.

    (this reminds me - anyone of you used the flare to illuminate a dark place to reduce the modifier while shooting?)

    At least I then had the occasion to make my own char.

    The second n00best thing was going to Junktown with a rifle in my hands. The guards told me to holster my weapons, so I though "WTF, they are ordering ME to do somethin'?" and decided to scare them a bit. So I changed hands (I had a frag in the other) and - suprise! - the guards attacked me. I though they were mean sobs so I killed them all and took their stuff. But, as a result, I didn't explore the town further than the gate and thus I didn't know that Junktown is such a interresting location untill I played the game for the second time.

    And when people told me that the Water Merchants controled the water reserves of the Hub and were very mean jerks, I decided to kill them. And after doing so I was highly suprised that the city guards are attacking me.

    Well, what can I say - I played very emotionaly for the first time.

    After getting busted for stealing in junktown, i got put in jail for the night :twisted: . Not knowing about the rest feature i lockpicked my way out and got blasted by the guards.

    I also took the "can you repeat that, this time into my coat pocket?", I then wasted gizmo and his goon with a hunting rifle, and then got kicked out of junkown !!!!!
    Damn those junktown fiends !!!

    I went to the Glow but left my buddies behind at the BOS bunker. Didn't wanna have to spend my Rad-Away's en Rad-X's on them. I ended up having to leave more then half of the stuff behind... Ah well, I found out Dogmeat still rocks. He killed like 10% of the Security Bots. Good Doggie... :)

    I was connvinced that is was a bug when the BOS guy's diden't enter the base, it was a bug, so I re-installed the game...

    You can't get people's armor when you kill them. I tried. It's only happened to me twice (Once in F2 and in the Boneyard. I had SO many Metal armors in there.)
