    And this is the very worst thing in Fallout: the SCIENCE! I think it's creepy that everything looks retrofuturistic, in a good way. But using B-movie science is an ode to ignorance. This should never be done.

    Well, it's just a game. I love lore and consistency as much as the next hardcore older Fallouts fans, but it doesn't have to adhere to actual real-life scientific facts. Being consistent with itself is more than enough.

    I would assume cannibalism would be quite common in those earlier days when food was a lot more scarce.

    Isn't it cannon that after the scorching fire that burned the whole world for a few hours that the world was sent into a nuclear winter for a few weeks?

    By God, I hope so.
    Just don't have it be made by Bethesda.

    Oh yeah, that would be horrifying, hopefully Bethesda lets either Obsidian or another company do a fallout game.

    I'm pretty sure the only reason there's even some sort of deadly radiation there is because the Glowing Sea was where the nuke dropped by a Nuclear Power Plant and caused some sort of chain reaction that made that place a radioactive hell-hole, though the 'rad-storms' are silly overall.

    Personally thats not something id be all that interested in playing. My current stance on this franchise is let's just stop making these horrible "sequels" let the game franchise die. And then we can keep the fallout universe alive through comic books. Then maybe we could have a mini-series set just after the war.

    Comic books? Nope, the franchise should be kept alive with tablet games like Fallout Shelter.
    Look at that awesome Fallout feel.

    Yes. You'll be an astronaut of the USSA whose space station is destroyed in the opening hours of the war, but you manage to survive by scavenging around the remains of the station and then using the docked shuttlecraft to return to Earth (logical and allows for a tutorial). There, you land in the immediate vicinity of Houston which launches rockets, now, too, for some reason, and either manager to establish a community in the ticking radiated ruins and form a cowboy empire or get things under control enough to scavenge what you can and repurpose the Mars Shot project and launch off to the Moon and establish a new nation there with scavenged military, civvie, and vaultek tech.
