Things that are supposed to make me depressed, like when the MC father's brings up what you did to Megaton in one of the dialogues, are so badly written and acted that it's funny. Dozens of people were murdered, and this fact never makes your father rethink about how to treat you. You can keep talking with him like nothing serious really happened. In Fallout 1, the NPC would be frowning at you after you pissed him off. There's not even that, in F3! Just a blank expression. Are we supposed to actually care about Liam/father's take, on this? When the developers have put that big, Herculean effort into his dialogues? Why should we care about this character?
