Newbie here, lurker for a few years too though not as long as TerminallyChill above. I first found this place when I was looking for mods for Fallout 2. As an incidental, the ones I got truly enriched my experience and I'd like to say thanks, if not for making them then for fostering the community that produced them. So, I suppose this is the part where I tell how I got into Fallout. This is a bit strange for me because while I'm not a vet, I wasn't introduced to the series through the Bethesda titles. In fact, I've only played 1,2 and New Vegas. It's out of pure stinginess I'm afraid. Picked up the originals when they were free a while back, and recently a friend gifted me New Vegas. I've found that there is a disconnect between me and more mainline Fallout communities such as the subreddit because I come front a different place than most there. I even tried the New Vegas one, but it's a ghost town. So I figured why not join the site with the curmudgeons that prefer the only games in the series I've played? My bad humor aside, I do have quibbles with the Bethesda design philosophy, though I come at it more as more of an Elder Scrolls fan than a Fallout one. That's probably one reason I joined, because when I hear things from over the fence they sound eerily similar to my observations about the newer TES titles. I guess I'm hoping this place may help give perspective on what exactly happened to a company I once liked and perhaps a better idea what all the battlelines in the Fallout community are about. If I don't, nothing's lost. Still get to talk about games I like and maybe have a conversation or two about game design, I've seen how you love to have those here. Regardless, I wish you all a hearty hello.
