I played fallout 2 again recently and thought the story is a bit stupid.. why did the vault dweller go far into the north? He could've just went to shady sands.. or any other place on the map. And why exactly is Arroyo a tribal village? They don't even have guns, if some slavers or raiders wanted to, they could probably take a bunch of people with not much problem. Maybe if there wasn't a connection between the vault dweller and chosen one it wouldnt be as bad..
