    I just wanted to take the time to talk and create a thread about how awesome the whole atmosphere is in the Fallout universe. One big reason for this is the atmospheric score by Mark Morgan.

    The soundtrack gives the game a sense of mystery, creepiness, and death around the corner that the Fallout 4 lack. The earlier games also have a darker, more serious, and edgy razor sharp unforgiving tone to it.

    There's nothing like traveling to The Glow and on the way the world map shows more and more of the land scorched by bombs until eventually you come upon a massive crater. When you go inside its deafly quiet. No enemies. No sounds. Nothing but completely blackened piles of bone and dust that used to be living people.

    Greatest. atmosphere. ever.

    There's nothing like coming upon and interacting with the populated areas of the casinos post-apocalypse which run entirely by mafia gangs.

    Or walking into the town hall of Nipton and seeing bodies scattered throughout the entire building and vicious Legion dogs left behind with this in the background

    There's nothing like overlooking the Mojave atop a hill at nighttime all alone with caves nearby and Vipers within a local radius, and the bright city of New Vegas in the distance.

    I love the desolate "what's out there" vibe fallout 1 gives me. And i love the lawless freakish nature of Fallout 2. But I dunno... at this stage in the timeline a western atmosphere works best.

    The Followers of the Apocalypse theme is on the top.

    The necropolis version is creepy, gives that hostile that death is around vibe.

    Mark Morgan is amazing. Torment's score was also incredible. I don't think I'll ever get tired of listening to My Chryslis Highwayman or Sigil Battle.
