I haven't actually finished the game, but I've watched some videos of it on youtube sumarising the main quest and it's probably one of the sappiest stories in any popular video game series that I've ever seen. The long pauses, the horrible voice acting, the supposed emotionality of it all. Anyway, I got the game, installed it and found out that my laptop's not good enough to run it properly. I don't really mind this at all because after spending ~20 minutes in it I realized that I would have to force myself into playing this, which I do not want. But what about that introduction? You start off as this everyman/woman casually minding their business. A knock on the door and there's this Vault-Tec rep telling you that you were chosen to house a vault. Cool, huh? I mean, if there's going to be a nuclear apocalypse in the future, your family's covered. Not 5 minutes pass and nuclear apocalypse happens. That one in a million odd of it happening just after registering yourself into a vault just happened. But hey, this is a videogame, right? We'll just let this incredibly stupid writing gaffe pass. You and your spouse remeber that decades-ago conversation you had with that Vaul-Tec rep, so you immediately rush to a vault. Where is this vault? A GODDAMN 3 MINUTE WALK FROM YOUR HOUSE. Convenient, huh? HOW ABOUT THE FACT THAT THE MILITARY'S ALREADY PREPARED FOR NUCLEAR APOCALYPSE? More convenient! What's silly is that the military and civilians act in an incredibly orderly fashion. Anyway, you end down in this Vault just seconds after the blast hits the surface above you. Very convenient! How do people react? Why, how most people would. They make an orderly queue, don't question the nuclear apocalypse and don't scream and panic that their comfy lives will be replaced with living underground in a bunker. Hey, those friends, relatives and human beings that were burned and irradiated to death probably deserved it. Another gripe that I have with the intro is that the merc dude just kills your spouse instead of just incapacitating them, because hey, it's not like the frozen people are special or anything. I guess that smacking a man or woman that's just being defrozen is too dangerous for a guy like him. Plotholes upon plotholes. Say what you want about Fallout 3, but at least they didn't make the introduction as stupid as this one. It's beyond me how the writer can make money by writing this crap.
