    Not to mention secret service agent Frank Horrigan from In The Line Of Fire. And in reference to Vader, there's a Star Wars quote about Vader used about Horrigan. "He's more man than machine now."

    At least twice, once as a random encounter, in which he kills two people who are illicited to have worked for the Enclave.
    V13, you see him kill the leader of the Deathclaws. (Gruthar?)
    Apparently, there's a way of playing it that results in you seeing him wipe the Brootherhood out.

    Nah, you just have to get into the BoS in Frisco, deliver the vertibird plans, come back later and the guard will be gone.

    You can see what happened by playing back a video recording inside the bunker.

    Sometimes I felt pity for the Master, but at the same time I was satisfied after convicing him (or it) to suicide. Isn't ironic? I didn't really like Frank Horrigan though, even if he got 999hp or more.
    And oh yes, :lol: that damn president is really a bad parody afterall (refering to the former/current president-you-know-who in real life). However I think he's the most vilest villain I've ever known and I can't get enough satisfaction after killing him. Totally ironic, too. :roll:

    Frank Horrigan was an OK endboss, nothing compared to the master of course; just the Semper Fi line suprised me.

    He actually thought that he was serving some greater good, when he was infact a mutant himself and the president had no plans to inoculate him.. he was expendable.

    If only I could have told Horrigan this, he might have actually switched sides and proceeded to kill everyone inside of the Enclave as the reactor was melting down. That would have been pretty cool.

    Example:

    If someone tried to explore his character in a non-official way but in the context of the Fallout world, would that be insteresting to people?

    I think that the Master was a much better villain. First, he has a large background story in the holodisks, and that Harold knew him before he became what he was. This makes the player think more about the master as well as revealing the how and why behind the Master. Second, despite his rather charming, cutesy wootsy appearance, hes convincing, presenting the fact that a strong will is necessary to put him down. Horrigan was more of an evolved Mega Man, which was Anime, and therefore can bite my balls.

    Agreed. Horrigan was the stereotype of a Big Bad Boss, whereas The Master was pretty much a breakoff out of the 'main enemy' cliche.

    On another note:

    How... Norman Rockwell on amphetamine?

    WHAT!? The Master can be compared to a handicapped kid with speech-problems, in a wheelchair with miniguns attached - that ain't cool. Frank Horrigan is like.. A giant! With custom weapons and a scary voice, plus a extra violent death! He would kick The Masters ass in one hit! :D

    Wow, I was just about to ask for someone to say something stupid, and you must have read my mind. Well done on the telepathy there, I'll know to ask you when I want someone to be an idiot.

    The Master is definitely the better villain, even if Frank Horrigan is the more typical action movie endboss.

    What are you... 5 years old?
    Frank Horrigan is your stereotypical "big bad dude boss with a big gun and hes really big and has a deep voice, not to mention hes really big and probably has a lot of hp [OMG!1] and a killer gun..."
    The master is a constant threat. Hes makin mutants by the dozen, and is trying to enslave everyone. Horrigan is a drone with supar armar[sic] and the BFG. You can find Horrigan in any lame ass fairy fag RPG...

    PS. Look RPG! I learned me good on how ta quote thangs.

    Alright, Alright, it's quite obvious that The Master completely PWNS (zomg!) Frank Horrigan, and how Frank is the stereotypical big bad guy. We're straying off topic here fella's.

    I for one thought that if they gave Frank a bigger, better back-story and made him a bit more important than an end-boss, then he would've been quite dandy.

    I think the president was even more villain than frank. Frank was more like presidents prison bitch. But president was also very repulsive character.

    Yeah, the Master was much better, but Lt. Worf's little speech is amusing.

    I thought Frank Horgan was the coolest villian ever... powerful, evil, big, and SCARY.

    Frank was 2 dimensional, he was just a big-mean guy. You had no backstory.

    You kept getting hints of the masters existence, not to mention power; The holodiscs in the military base, Harold talking about his expedition etc. The Master genuinely believes he is helping the world to bring about unity.

    Horrigan was just "ME BAD. ME HURT. WHERE MY TEDDY?"

    Horrigan is from FO2, Master is from FO1, hence Master automatically wins, anyway. Fallout 2 is just plain inferior compared to the original. Fallout 3 will probably be inferiorer still.

    Hey, whaddya know, I made up a word! Yum!
