Are shots to testicles really funny?

    Shots to testicles/groin/whatever are NOT about fun.

    They're about JUSTICE upon dog killers and stuff.

    right, I forgot what the thread is about.

    so, it's not funny, but it's useful - hitting an enemy in the groin ignores armor (except power armors), so it's useful when they have helmets, we don't have armor piercing ammo (doesn't matter in fallout 1 though) and chance to hit the eyes are too low. it's logical, since most body armors are hardest on chest and shoulders. so shooting in groin isn't just juvenile joke.

    For the person pulling the trigger, maybe.

    For the poor bastard who just got emasculated -- hell no.

    That was what they thought back in the first installation. In Fallout 2, Marcus reveals otherwise (that it had mostly just been a temporary "fault" in the system).

    Official information has stated that Marcus commentary was just a joke and that Super Mutants are sterile.

    What does Marcus know anyway.

    Groin shots are about the knock downs. And they never work.

    Groins shots often work, and most hits will cause knockdown; some will cause knockouts.

    Groin and eye shots are hilarious and very effective

    As long as they don't happen to you

    Go for critical hits! Use melee weapons for improved critical chance and grab Better Criticals perk. This way Chosen One will crush the balls of anyone who opposed him with extreme prejudice all the way up their asses. :twisted:

    There are many knockdown and knockout hits in the man/groin critical table, so all you need is properly trained character.

    Amen!
    Someone has commited unspeakably rude thing? Castrate him and be done with it!

    Shots to the groin/testicles are funny, especially when used with a steel-toed power boot.

    Nothing like Roundhouse kicking people in the groin with an unarmed oriented character in FO2.

    You can play them. They are on GOG. And are pretty affordable.

    I would probably be spoiled by lack of first person (started with FO 3).

    Unfortunately they are not on GoG; Bethesda had them pulled when the lawsuit was settled. They have since re-released them on Steam though.

    I think that's fully compensated by excellent music, animations, and overall atmosphere lacking in modern bethesdian Fallout. You really should try it someday, not due to groin shots mentioned in this joke thread, but because both BIS Fallouts are great games on its own. (Try reading the F1 manual for starters, just to see what features are there in first Fallout.)

    So do you only play first person games? Because then you are missing on a LOT of games.

    Mostly just for Fallout and TES. I play plenty of other RPG-types that are not First Person (Diablo 3 is top-down).
