    I decided to see how many of something I could collect in a playthrough.

    Empty whiskey bottles seemed like a good choice. I lost exact count somewhere around 796. I think there are +/- 825 here. These are all from the vanilla game, none from the DLC packs. I know there are a few more down in the bar to pick up too. I'll get an exact count after that.

    Fun fact: there's an Auto Axe leaning up against the oscilloscope thingy in the middle of the pic.

    related: is anyone else compelled to pick up all the random items scattered in an area, organize them, and put them in a container out of sight?

    I used to do the same thing with Fallout: Tactics and happy pies. I swear, I HAD to collect them. There was no rational reasoning for it.

    Also, any slow down with your nifty little collection there?

    Wow. :shock:
    The only stuff I collected were the bobbleheads and some pre-war books. Also, you blew up Megaton, didn't you? xD

    Holy crap... reminds me of the stashes upon stashes of various booze I would store in the trunk of the car in F2 (Ironic no?).

    Makes your character look like he's a dipsomanic really. Fun though.

    I collect Nuka-Cola Quantom and stash them on my Megaton desk in the bedroom. So far I have 60 and I don't have the Perk in Broken Steel add on that allows you to make more.

    I will upload a ppicture when I get the chance.
