add me to the list of people who played FO2 first and loved it for it's silly humor. I had never before played a game that was so dark and gritty and yet made me laugh my ass off at the same time. to me, the humor was a big and important part of the full experience. however, I love FO1 for what it is as well, and can definitely understand that people who played and loved it first of all the games don't think the silliness fits. but even FO1 is filled with humor, just more subtle. in the end, I personally think Fallout games should have elements of humor and shouldn't take themselves too serious.
