    On a semi-related note, what's the best oldies intro/credits song? I'm partial to "Maybe" myself. I found it left a big impact seeing the Dweller walk into the desert to that song at the end of Fallout 1.

    How did you even come remotely close to this kind of conclusion? Nowhere in his post Einhanderc was trying to tell you that 'Fallout should be a horror game'. His mention of Silent Hill was to show you how ambient music work, by reinforcing the visuals you got in the place you hear the music, to evoke the right atmosphere. So I guess, instead of mentioning Silent Hill maybe Ein should've mentioned Fallout track and how it helps evoking the right atmosphere of the place you listened to it. For example, the Hub's music, 'A Trader's Life' definitely help evoking the atmosphere of being in a town where trading is really busy because it's literally the 'hub' of trading.

    I think there may have been a mutual misunderstanding. The way I read it, Einhanderc was comparing Fallout's creepier, unnerving music to a horror game, wherein both attempt to put the player at a state of unease. Then I mentioned how I felt much of the music was very similar to a horror game, but that's not what I expected nor wanted from the atmosphere. Apologies if there's been any confusion.

    No need to apologize. It's how you feel about the music in the game.
    I posted to describe how I feel about it, since it was different from you.
    For you it doesn't work and for me works perfectly. Nothing wrong about that :wink:.

    I thought the whole discjockey thing was not a very good idea. I did not like any of the radio hosts. I think Wasteland 2 had a much better thing going on with radio than that.

    Also... The flare of listening to 50's pop songs on top of exploding heads was also old after the first trailer that depicted it.

    No worries, context can be difficult to determine in text. Typically when I reply to a thread I focus on it's mechanics and purpose in the game. In this case I feel that I should apologize as well as your intent was indeed confused.

    However if I can make a suggestion, when posting about your opinion try to give those who are reading your response more to think about so that they can understand your position better. Typically when someone says they just dislike something it doesn't reveal much other than a general term of convenience.

    To clarify as well, my intention was not to compare Fallout to horror aspects but the level of impact the music had as it fit with the theme. Horror games just typically do this better than others since pacing and tone play a major role in its game play.

    Mr. New Vegas. Better voice than Travis, less annoying than 3 dog, has more lines than Tabitha and Eden combined.

    Gotta go with Mr. New Vegas. I do like listening to the radio once in a while and hear Mr. New Vegas comment on the things you do in the Wasteland. Really helps that he doesnt instantly assume that everything that happens in the world has something to do with you.

    I dont find 3 Dog particularly annoying, but it always bothers me how every single one of his comments about you makes him sound like the most dedicated stalker on earth who has nothing better to do except...dogging your footsteps! *badum tssss* :V

    I also sometimes have to turn on the music because I use a mod that changes the lighting in the game (Darker Nights, or something like that). The darker environment combined with the Fallout ambient music is too succesful at putting me on edge. Its made me accidentaly shoot Malcolm Holmes many a time.
