    No, i mean, where is the lore saying all the Vaults in Boston should have gotten GECKs.

    You keep saying there is lore all the Vaults got GECKs, yet have not provided it, and Tactics, Fo3, NV, and F all disprove it. Hell, so does Fallout 1. As Vault 12 in Bakersfield didnt get a GECK

    Go back to history class. Humans only came together out of a outright need of other people to achieve greater things.

    That does not change the fact those people weren't all holding hands and singing songs together out of mutual like, only that they begrudgingly accepted the help of others to elevate themselves to a higher position.

    Nor does it change the fact the fundamental fear of "the other", as well as the belief that you, and people like you, are more important, is the base cause of things like racism, which is still heavily prevalent in the modern world.

    You want to talk about intellectually dishonesty, go look in a mirror

    GECKs were used where it's feasable. Putting GECK to work in Bakersfield, a ruined city? Not gonna work. Not to mention what GECK is should be.

    So I have a couple comments of my own :D
    First off, I was unaware that there was a legit reason and explanation for how FEV got over to the Institute. Still, I wish it was elaborated and explained to you, other than a hidden terminal somewhere (I have a distaste for such lazy writing)

    Second, I do feel that there was a legit reason for the mutants to be present in Fallout 2 and New Vegas, and in my opinion, its to show how far the Wasteland has come since the more darker age that Fallout 1 took place in. Everything regarding the mutants appear much more tranquil, and for someone who played the original before playing 2, I felt that the transition was cool. And then Bethesda just butchered them, in my opinion. Idk, I've always loved the way mutants were handled in the old games and NV.

    So you don't expect it to work in a ruined city like Bakersfield, but do expect it to work in an even larger ruined city like Boston?

    And you don't see how that is contradictory?

    Are all Vaults inside Boston? No? Is Fallout 4 a well-thought game in this question or another half-retard experiment crap? Yes it is? Get out, then.

    This isn't really a discussion but more like a triggered Fallout 4 fanboy trying to refute your points by bringing up his points on 4 and the rest of us pointing out that how his points have been nonsensical at times.

    Didn't they say that the FEV in the Institute was obtained through unknown means though? This terminal entry seems to indicate that they obtained it through handwaving:
    http://fallout.wikia.com/wiki/Forced_Evolutionary_Virus#cite_note-2

    Goodsprings? Novac? Must all the towns in New Vegas be excluded from your list or do you want to target the Strip precisely? We do know how the White Gloves have survived and as for the rest, it would be feasible that they did make some form of small agriculture (but also could have relied on raiding settlements beyond the Strip) before Mr House had their society reorganized
    And way to concede to my point on towns being able to exist with pre-War buildings.

    Which brings to mind this question: Why should Boston's population be discarded then? If control vaults existed in California and Vegas, why is Boston excluded?

    The existence of control vaults should have been proof that some vaults should have gotten GECKs. Let's face it, supply mistakes happen all the time (how else would Vault 13 not get the spare water chips and instead gotten a spare GECK?)

    Wait. Are you actually trying to imply that the people of Bakersfield, and the Vaults inside Boston proper, couldn't have been expect to walk a little bit to an area just outside the city to use their GECKs?

    V75 inhabitants could and should (why they didnt - ask Bethesda, not me), but V114 ones are lost cause due to the same radiation question.

    1.
    A. According to the offical New Vegas game guide, Goodsprings was founded by NCR citizens given a land grant. Thus, those are farms made by people from the NCR, and not people from the mojave
    B. Novac doesn't have a farm, it has three brahmin, and nothing else.
    C. Nice headcanon.

    2. Because there are only like 12 control Vaults, and theres like 30+ major cities in America. theres a bigger chance of a major city not getting one then a major city getting one.

    3. Sure, SOME Vaults got GECKs, that wasn't being disputed.

    I have, there is nothing on there suggesting that radiation would render a GECK inert.

    >The guy who literally never goes outside due to fear of the outside caused by staying in a Vault most of his life.
    Were you trying to imply he farmed?

    The basic model is largely made up of seeds and fertilizer/soil enhancements. So, if those organic components are exposed to high doses of radiation as well as ambient aerosolized FEV...do you see where this is going?

    Many of us agree with that sentiment from what I can tell. The mutants in 2 & New Vegas seem less like orcs and more like former soldiers attempting to return to their lives but unlike human soldiers, they are ostracised for their distinct appearances (though it has more to do with what they tried to do). Some are not as ostracised but most are forced into isolated locations like Black Mountain & Jacobstown to stay away from humans. A few however have reintegrated successfully though their purpose seems to be protection of those communities they live in.

    That's how normal GECKs work, the matter recombinator is a different kind of GECK that exists in Bethesda's zany universe. Their contents can be damaged from radiation which renders them mostly useless save for a few items inside:
    http://fallout.gamepedia.com/Garden_of_Eden_Creation_Kit#Basic_G.E.C.K..5B2.5D

    Thanks, yours is still a lot more nonsensical than mine though since all I did was expect some form of normal society and all. I mean, human evolution to cope with radiation only after 200 years. Even I would not consider saying stupid notions like that here and I'm the one open to clarification :roffle:.

    One could argue that there was some form of settlement that there became Goodsprings once the NCR recognised the need for develop a low-risk mining environment near a reliable source of clean water. I mean the clean water would have been good cause to make a minor settlement there before the events of New Vegas. Plus there were already some pre-War houses.

    I think @a721402 is implying that your point on how only people from the NCR live in Goodsprings is objectively false. Another person I can point to is Easy Pete, a prospector who only settled down in Goodsprings recently.

    Anyways, thanks for helping fill up my posting quota for the week. Seeing you attempt to justify your head-canon on a site that dislikes 4 with legit cause is amusing as it is perplexing. I mean, did you actually make an account here just to comment on the OP's video but then got side-tracked into defending your head-canon?

    I never said only people from the NCR lived in the town... I said the town and farms were made by people from the NCR.

    Wait, are you actually trying to imply that airborne FEV is canon despite the fact Avellone and Tim Cain expressively denied so in the Fallout Bibles?

    He was expecting us to believe through his long-ass spewing terminilogy that Fallout 4 is actually a well written and well designed game with everything on it's place.
