    Not quite sure if anyone else has made a topic like this, but it's self explanatory. So what's the funniest thing that you did or came across during a playthrough from any of the Fallout games (yes even BoS)? Mine was definitely from Fallout 2 when I banged Bishop's wife then immediately punched his face off with my MPF :lol: That whole game is just FILLED with hilarious moments lol

    I told a story recently in the "New Vegas WTF" thread about absentmindedly loading Boone down with some gear to sell, fast travelling into a Legion ambush, and having him end up raining down ruin on friend and foe alike with a Fat Man while wearing a fireman's helmet. It was definite non-sequitur humor, but I don't recall ever laughing much harder while playing a vidgy game.

    Aside from scripted moments, the other thing that immediately jumps out at me is the first time I discovered you could actually get sodas from some of the vending machines in Fallout 2. I'd just limped out of the rat caves beneath Klamath with nary a hit point to spare and I didn't know they could injure you if your agility(?) wasn't high enough. I actually ended up killing myself with an errant Nuka bottle.

    Finding the Bridge of Death for the first time in FO2 was one of those times. Like the game tells you to, I saved right before the Bridge, so I ended up redoing that small part 10+ times with the same giddy smile on my face the entire time.

    Ever now and then I will return to that save just for a few laughs.

    Right after I picked up Veronica for the first time at the 188 we ran into a Legion assassin ambush. I racked up a string of 10mm headshots in VATS and let 'em fly but because I was using hollowpoints they ended up not killing the guy with the big arc welder coming at me; so I'm backpedaling nailing that ammo switch key to get some new rounds into the chamber when all of a sudden Veronica leaps in from the left and clocks him in the head for a kill.

    One of my first Fallout 2 playthroughs. Probably unpatched too.

    After getting annoyed with Myron’s lack of shooting skills I decided to buy him a BB gun in the NCR Bazaar. Dude didn’t want to equip it so I took it back, equipped it myself and shot him in the groin. Critical hit for 0 damage, knocked him out for several hours. Afterwards he didn’t want to talk to me anymore, he just stood there.

    It cost me the power armour he was wearing. But it was well worth it :D.

    New vegas.. Picked up boone for the first time and was unimpressed. Just thought I would use him as a pack mule until i found a new companion. I was pretty low on caps at the time so I went exploring and looking for ways to make money. Happened to stumble across cottonwood cove and decided to start sniping legionnaires from the overlook.

    I shot a couple guys by the tents but was surprised that there were so few people to kill in such a big place. Preparing to go collect my prizes I looked to my right and saw a legionnaires head explode and fall on a goddamn field of lifeless corpses littered with body parts. I decided to keep him around after all.

    Would be when I was running F2, with Sulik in my party equipped with the bridgekeepers robes. I used him as my cargo-donkey or whatnot since I didn't have the car just yet, so he carried all the heavy stuff like big guns and such. In a random fight he suddenly whips out a Bozar and mows down EVERYONE in the path of the weapon, including me. I was so damn surprised at first that I couldn't react, then I started to laugh like a madman when I realized what had happened.

    Most likely the funniest moment of my Fallout-experience.

    Probably the unlucky guy in Vault 13 (Fallout 2), his story was just so dramatic and funny at the same time.

    Also, for some reason, I find it really funny when Chris Avellone in F1 is asking you "What do you want?", and one of the answers is "A donut".

    In Modoc, first time I begun to click through the "cut off your pinky finger to seal the deal" dialogue sequence,
    finally culminating in "just kidding" and end of dialogue and combat mode -.- it was hysterical untill combat, when I realized I had to re-load and re-play quite a bit... but worth it.

    I had something similar, I think it was on my first time going through New Vegas when I had recruited Boone and was entering rooms of the motel opposite to McCaran.

    We just went into a room when someone exited from the toilet, and before I could act Boone shot him down.
    I was like "What the fuck? Why did you do that?"
    I later found out it was a junkie that would have attacked me anyway.

    Another funny moment was after I had visited Caesar's tent and exited with the intention of asking Arcade to follow me again.
    He had enormous hands all of a sudden and for a moment I did not know what to make of it.

    When I was at the NCR outpost and had just gained the status of the NCR liking me, I saw someone fall out of the sky onto the slope that leads to the Mojave.
    When the rangers that gives you the walkie talkie appeared I realize it was him who had materialized just out in open air during the status check.

    Last, I was playing Fallout 3 years ago and I decided to quick travel somewhere in DC.
    An Enclave outpost happens to be here and when I approached the place the Enclave troops and officers were frantically running around and shooting at something.

    I found out that somehow a Mirelurk hunter had materialized inside a building support pillar and that was riling the AI of the Enclave members.

    I also remember when I was playing a character in NV at my Sister's house (my brother in law being a huge fallout fan and all), and while I was walking through Novac cracking up jokes with him all of a sudden Malcolm Holmes comes running up to me, and warns me of the whole dangers of carrying star caps. So as soon as the conversation ended I shot him dead blowing his leg off in the process. Then I proceeded to wear his clothes and drag his body around singing ''Dancing in the Moonlight'' because it was night time in game :lol:

    My most WTF? moment was my first Random Encounter, I think it was either the Godzilla foot print or the possibly the Unwashed villagers I was playing with a friend and we both just looked at each other and shrugged.

    Funniest must have been, playing NV and seeing Doc Mitchals head spinning round in a circle, I got NV right after a BSG marathon and hearing Saul-Thigh's voice with his head spinning round just made me chuckle for a good 10 min.

    FONV Realizing that was Dave Foley as my robotic quest hub and deciding immediately that I didn't really care what result I got, as long as I got all my missions from Dave Foley lol.

    Nothing in FO 1/2 was as funny to me as playing the game with the voice of my favorite KITH cast member. Although the Hubologists was definitely a high point, nice political dig at a very wacko cult. Oh and probably the first time I knocked myself to the ground with a critical miss... using my own fists lol.

    Jericho in fallout 3. I had him in sandbox AI, some villager walks up to him, and he says two different lines that fit perfectly together.

    I forget the exact wording, but it was something like:
    "Hey, how ya doing?"
    *no pause*

    Every lines from Myron.
    Every steps of Typhon quest. (Broken Hills)
    The Hubologists
    The plant that teach you how to beat a radscorpion on chess.
    The reactions to idiot PC, or PC that claim to be the chosen one.
    80% of Fo2 floating texts.
    Critical hit/miss, possible for everyone, with desastrous consequences. (is someone no any game that bring the same)

    I remember one time when I was playing Fallout with my own permadeath rules (basically the only rule was no reloading saves. The only time I could reload a save was when I quit and then wanted to come back to it. But if I messed up somehow, my rule was that I couldn't reload the save, and if I died, well then, that was it). It must have been my longest Fallout playthrough, and it made me seriously sit there and think about every single thing I did, as if I was there in real life.Anyways, I'm fighting some Super Mutants with Ian, and we are losing this fight. It's close, and if I get brave and strategic, I could possibly win it, but it will cost me a good amount of stims, and since its permadeath and no loading old saves rules, I knew the best thing was to just accept my loss and get the hell out of there. Anyways, I start running. We start to get away at first, the super mutants are slow. Turns pass, and we are almost out of the battle, me running, and Ian following behind me. Then Ian runs directly behind me, and a super mutant pulls out a rocket launcher and trys to fire it at me. It hit Ian, killing him instantly, givng that "Oops! Ian was critically hit for -- points of damage instead of Damen!" It knocked me down also, but I got back up and escaped with my life. Since I had a "no reload" and "permadeath" rule, I felt horrible about Ian, as if he actually died. A little later it hit me exactly what happened in the chaos of the moment, and I couldn't stop laughing, though I did pay a visit to those same mutants with Tycho and got revenge for Ian.Dogmeat also died on me. e got swarmed and trapped by ghouls. They trapped him in a circle, to where he couldn't run but he was hurt bad. I couldn't get close enough to get him a stimpak, so all I could do was sit back and pick off the ghouls with my rifle one by one and pray dogmeat would make it out. With only two ghouls left, dogmeat was finally free and just as he started to run, a glowing one killed him.Playing with permadeath and no reload rules is certainly an experience, and I would recommend it to anyone who has played and beaten both Fallouts.

    Here's one for you, a hilariously well timed glitch. I was wandering the northern mountains, as I often do when I'm bored, and I had my "realist" gear--CLOTHES, 1 rifle (hunting rifle), 1 pistol (10mm), a combat knife, and about 5 stimpacks. That's it. I was on the Very Hard difficulty setting. I do this just to see if I can survive and come back with more than I left with (most of the time I do).

    ANYWAY, in this particular journey, I had just ran into some Giant Radscorpions and used what little ammo I'd brought for my hunting rifle. And I round the corner, and run smack into a friggin DEATHCLAW!!!! I was like, "holy shit, all I have is this 10 mm pistol!!!" so I fired off a couple rounds and took off running! I found myself cornered, with nowhere to run except right by the damn deathclaw, or try to slide off the cliff (which CAN work if you are careful, but all too often slides can end in disaster).

    having not saved in a while, I wasn't too keen on a failed slide, so I was about to try and dash past the deathclaw (my char had low hps do to 4 end--this was before the DLC). Just as I'm about to make my mad dash, the deathclaw is firggin sucked up into the damn sky! Swear, it just *fwoomp* rises into the air, vanishing! I was like "yay, saved by the glitch--the gods hath smiled upon me!!!"

    Now it gets even funnier. About an hour later, when I'm out of the mountains and wandering the wasteland below, I'm waling around and I see this tiny little dot in the sky...and it gets bigger, and bigger and bigger...until I see it's a deathclaw FALLING!!!! Once it gets close enough to target, I see the effing thing is the exact same deathclaw that was sucked up an hour before! I know it was the same one because of it's slightly lowered health from when I shot the thing with my pistol. By this time, my Hunting Rifle has ammo again (I'd found some on a couple muties). The thing hit the ground, but didn't die (another oddity), so I blasted it with my rifle, and killed it.

    That is single handedly the funniest glitch I've ever encountered, and I have to say, I am very pleased to have been able to see it ^___^
