    The final bit where Azura basically gives you the lowdown on the prophecy.

    "I was the Chosen One, right?"

    "Well, yes, you are because you succeeded."

    "And if I hadn't?"

    "Then you wouldn't be. The Prophecy is more like guidelines than rules."

    Ken Levine is the same guy who decided to center the entire plot of Bioshock Infinite around concepts he didn't understand, such as Quantum Theory. He's not exactly the type of person you should be looking to for inspiration when the Bioshock2 Devs did a better job with his creation than he did. And player choice makes for a much more interesting experience, it's just harder to do, and requires more effort, which much of the videogames industry is lacking lately. Just look at Fallout 1,2 & NV. Or the witcher series, or the aforementioned VTMB.

    Death is officially trivial

    -Ghouls live a long ass time
    -So do supermutants
    -Cryogenics can keep you alive indefinitely
    -So can a hermetically sealed thing (Mr house)
    -Cyborg enhancement greatly increase you lifespan
    -Jesus juice
    -Aliens can also keep you alive for hundreds of years
    -The cloud also keeps you alive (technically)
    -Ghosts
    -if your name happens to be autumn you can die and come back later with no explanation

    I'm sure I missed some shit but death gets more and more trivialized with each entry it seems...

    Edit:
    I thought of some more

    Also you can be covered and pitch lit on fire and thrown in the grand canyon and live

    The courier can survive being shot in the head with little to no mental damage

    Hakunin willed himself living to deliver a message to the chosen one

    The think tank is effectively immortal

    So are cyber dogs

    And robobrains

    The lone wanderer/Sarah lyons also survive the impossible cuz DLC

    515(?): Even though the Institute's primary goal being to get uncorrupted human DNA to make Synths, they manage to choose two subjects who were exposed to gamma radiation before entering the vault; despite the fact that there were people inside the vault with uncorrupted DNA.

    How exactly did the Institute's people get corrupted with radiation given they live underground in the most secure Vault of all time?

    I'm referring more to the question why they needed uncorrupted DNA samples as no one leaves the underground tomb they live in.

    They cover it, it's just "Yeah, uh, well, there was a thing which caused us to be irradiated. Listen, they just needed us, okay."

    Fact number I've don't even know: A game in a series can literally make a split in its fanbase.

    To put it this way: everyone on /r/fallout argues, or can get into the argument of fallout 4 being good/bad. This entire website roasts people who like a god damn game. Such is life in the divide?

    521. The Sole Survivor who has personally witnessed the nuclear annihilation of everyone they loved and cherished will be cheerful in nuking another large group of people for his chosen faction of a month or so.

    522. The Sole Survivor will blow up the homes of children no matter which side he or she chooses.
