    After talking to Goris (but not letting him in my party), I saved. However, the game crashed, and does so every time I load. Is there a way to fix this?

    It could be a too many items bug. You might have corrupted that save.

    I have to say that Betheseda stayed true to the original Fallout in one way - they're both massively buggy.

    That's an infamous bug, everyone runs into it one time or another. Teaches people not to horde stuff. The game just couldn't keep track of all that stuff.

    I was a pack rat,, so I was one of the early one get it. Dump things you don't need in random encounters and you should be fine. If you don't want to load a much earlier save, you could reload that map from an earlier and keep your current game.

    Have you killed Matt (the tribal-looking character)?

    "If Matt dies but Gruthar remains alive, the game will crash if you leave the vault and return, or if you save and load in the vault. This happens regardless of whether you kill him yourself or he is killed by the deathclaws. You can move freely between the three levels and finish what business you have, but don't bring about Matt's demise unless you're killing the deathclaws or you don't plan to return to Vault 13 until after the massacre."

    Also it can be a normal crash and it has corrupted the save (the save is "incomplete" and cannot work... sorry spasticteapot, but your save is gone, no matter why.)
