    Out of all the quests which ones made you feel warm and accomplished as The Courier? Could even be the small stuff, like returning a toy to a child.

    I'd say rescuing Joana from Gomorrah and reuniting her with Carlos in "Bye Bye Love", especially if you do so without asking for any sort of payment. After they leave Vegas, they gratefully and tell you that they'll never forget you and hope to run into you again.

    Also convincing Alice to reconcile with her parents and stay in "Someone to Watch Over me". Good karma, the gun, the reward, Alice and her mother both survive and they go back to daily life.

    Repairing Rhonda for Tabitha is a beautiful moment.

    Completing Flags of our Foul-ups by making them work as a team and giving them proper training.

    Completing Restoring Hope and rescuing NCR soldiers, instead of killing them in Back in your own Backyard.

    Convincing Oscar to stop shooting refugees in Bitter Springs and getting help for the camp.

    Telling Boone that he should forgive himself for what he did in Bitter Springs.

    Rescuing Weathers family and convincing Frank to stop being abusive.

    At the end of I Could Make You Care when Veronica realizes she is more than the Brotherhood Of Steel. Not exactly 'feel good' if you convince her to leave and everyone at the Followers Outpost gets murdered, though.

    I like how you win the friendship of the Boomers by respecting their tribal culture, being nice to their kids and providing medical assistance. And at the end of the game they have achieved their dream of conquering the skies. Just so wholesome.

    As they rain bloody explosive death from above. Touching.

    I can't lie, the part about the guy and the girl falling in love through the binoculars is kind of cute. It would have been a hilarious twist if they actually hated each other's personalities when they met, though.

    I always feel nice when at game's beginning I help Goodsprings fend off Powder Gangers. Nothing special in it, to be honest, it just feels good helping them defend their homes. On top of it all, because it's early game (as early as it can be), recruiting as many people to the cause actually matters and the fight itself feels challenging (on higher difficulties at least).

    For me, anything helping the NCR is a "Feel Good Quest" but there are ones that stand out and other ones that are not NCR related:
    1. Protecting our hero President Kimball from Legion Assassination attempts.
    2. Helping the Misfits get along as a team by taking O'Hanrahan's advice.
    3. Repair Dr. Mobius and convince The Think Tank to not go out into the Mojave and turn it into an experimental bloodshed.
    4. Reuniting Ted with his father in Beyond the Beef and telling him that cutting off the food supply will not prove to be a good decision.
    5. Help the Followers of The Apocalypse at the Mormon Fort with giving them my medicine, talking to the Crimson Caravan and The Garrets to provide steady supply of medicine ingredients and food.
    6. Help out the town of Goodsprings in "Ghost Town Shootout".
    7. Fix Rhonda and get Tabitha to leave Black Mountain and stop her recruiting Super Mutants for the wrong reasons while not killing her.
    8. Help Follows-Chalk fulfill his dream of exploring the world outside of Zion.
    9. Help out the injured NCR soldiers in Camp Forlorn Hope's medical center and the injured Boomers in the Nellis medical station.
    10. Figure out who sold Boone's wife with proof.
    11. Avoid the Khans being deceived by the Legion by proving that Karl is not who everyone thinks he is and convincing Papa Khan to break the alliance with the Legion. After that, make the Khans leave the Mojave Wasteland but at the same time tell them at their Glory can be restored.
    12. Clear out the way for the caravans that are heading into the Mojave Wasteland from the Mojave Outpost
    13. Clear out ED-E's logs and help him get back to Navarro
    And those are all the Feel Good Quests that stand out (a.k.a they're the most memorable or those are the ones on top of my head at the moment).

    Ok, I have some new ones to add to my list:

    - Sniping @President_Peaches for Arizona Killer.

    - Arming the ARCHIMEDES security system during That Lucky Old Sun.

    - Nuking I-15 at the end of The Apocalypse.

    Sic semper tyrannis!

    But Peaches is the most stunning and brave president ever!


    I always get the warm and fluffies after wiping out the skirt-wearing pansies at Cottonwood Cove with Boone and a sniper rifle as the conclusion of "An eye for an eye"

    Oh My Papa is one quest that gets me laughing out loud every time. The way the whole room goes hostile on the long Legion ambassador and shoots him like Alonzo from training day when he reveals his feelings about the Khans was a good moment

    The ending you get for giving them Psycho is hilarious though.

    That one's a classic. I also like the one where you tamper with their training results and...
    they wind up being hanged from the Mojave Outpost Ranger statues for attempted desertion after the 2nd Battle for Hoover Dam. rofl...

    But anyway, I will go with... convincing the NCR mercs outside of Jacobstown to back down and leave the super mutants alone. It's one of the few quest outcomes that's almost universal across the different characters I've played.

    I enjoyed and felt good about helping Joana at Gomarrah as well. But not as fulfilling as acquiring her services prior to starting the quest.

    The last part of Someone to Watch Over Me, where you stop the corruption of Alice and her plan to shoot her own mother. I'm happy whenever I finish that quest with that ending.

    Or massacring the Van Graffs and Crimson Caravan with Rose Cassidy.

    Hmm... that's a tough one. Let me think:

    -Fixing Rex. I really like the old dog, he deserves to live, especially with OWB dlc and Roxie.
    -Making Boone make amends with himself, no matter the ending.
    -Saving Weathers from Legion and their abusive father.
    -Misfits brought to shape by kind words or some good old practice.
    -Helping Doctor Henry with Nightkin research
    -Jack love story (Nellis)
    -Someone to watch over me, I always let the daughter decide for herself and refuse the reward.
    -OWB talking down all the scientists and helping out with their problems.
    -Dead Money, shaking my hands with Christine, after treating her well.

    That's the most impactful ones.
