If you had to live in a Fallout game, where would you want to live?

    Suddenly, I'm more than willing to abandon the region. Unless a living Ulysses is there to run regular extermination services.

    If I recall, Caesar wanted to claim New Vegas to validate the Legion into being an actual nation rather than simply claiming the land as a new capital.

    EDIT: It could be that claiming the city would be that validation though I guess I can concede that New Vegas would become his Rome (though Flagstaff may be better suited as a capital since it's deeply entrenched and there is the risk of over-extension).

    Good points.
    I hope NCR victory is canon, with a Legion retreat.
    I hope that all the side factions (with the exception of the Boomers) were recruited to help them, and maybe because of their success they brought in even more soldiers. And when they've finally secured the area, talk begins of black monsters preying on caravans at night. Guards are doubled but the reports keep piling up, and supplies can't make it a few miles without suddenly disappearing. And then, one day, the ground collapses and the NCR presence in the Mojave is completely wiped out.

    That's my canon.

    in a nice, cozy Vault, like maybe Vault 21. you'd be guaranteed hot water, cooling, a clean bed, toilet, shower... need i go on? it's not very exciting, but more comfortable than the Wasteland could ever be.

    failing that, working for the Followers in the Boneyard. i think they are doing more good than any other faction. Jacobstown might be alright, too. living in a giant alpine ski lodge can't be so bad.

    You'd need to be good at gambling to win any disputes there tho. I'd probably avoid living in a vault (even a control vault) to avoid the unconscious conditioning arising from living secluded and isolated from the outside world like with Vault City.

    At least Jacobstown allows for some ski practice.

    possibly, but i imagine growing up there would teach you a thing or two about gambling.

    and true, i hadn't considered that. however, i think Vault City's bigoted disposition towards outsiders is atypical. i'd be more concerned about cabin fever, agoraphobia, and poor adaptation to the outside world. you'd be extremely sheltered.

    San Fran. Being Asian, I can easily fit in and become a kung fu master while having access to technology as a bonus, yay.

    I guess those would be common problems for anyone from the Vaults and you do have a point that Vault City's disposition is more atypical since they're a control vault with all the tech still pristine and free of any experimentation.

    On that point, do you recall that these issues are brought up if the Courier in New Vegas diagnoses Sarah and Sheldon (Michael Angelo) Weintraub?

    When I think about it, I am reminded of a Japanese show called Log Horizon. The premise of the show is people are stuck in an MMORPG called Elder Tales. Long story short, the world that they entered is more accurately a world resembling that MMORPG that slowly becoming more real. The world allows for actions not possible in the game and the items and mechanics are working closer to the flavor text. Following those rules, I imagine the world of Fallout as some kind of mindscape founded on the collective visions of its creators with the human inhabitant's perception of its reality ironing out its inconsistencies.

    I imagine if it is going by my perception of their world, the Courier would be based on my playthrough. This would give a frame of time events. I'll probably fabricate a story about being his brother or something. I could probably provide alternate solutions to certain quests, prevent some bad things from happening like the slaughter in Ranger station Charlie, and help him make a better ending which I don't have to kill Mr. House. I'll probably avoid direct combat by making traps and making a riot shield.

    Broken Hills always sounded to me like the place to find peace and grow old :P

    But definetly I would go Junktown. Don't have an explanation for this, always been my favourite since I am a kid, haha.

    that's what i was thinking of when i wrote that post, actually. i'm surprised that more vault dwellers across various Fallout games aren't suffering from the same issues as the Weintraubs.

    Sarah kind of creeped me out, to be honest. i don't know why—i think it was her weird enthusiasm for the Vault. she was kind of Stepford-y.

    I just think that that is just an aspect of the vault dwellers that the previous games neglect to touch upon just like the raiders having families thing. Chris Avellone did mention that he wanted to touch on that aspect of Khan's in the Fallout Bible.

    I forgot to mention that the show that watched had the map starting to stretch its realistic size. Imagine Fallout: New Vegas stretched to resemble the real-life Mojave and more people and places fill the gaps.

    It does seem like one of the more decent places to live.

    :puke:

    Bah the collapse of the NCR LIKE THAT feels so forced. One day they're powerful, then BOOM. Gone... meh not an interesting collapse. Legion victory and subsequent failed invasion would be cooler... breakup of the Legion, breakup of the NCR or possibly massive changes in their government...

    I could get behind that. It'd kinda be like the Punic Wars where Rome, which I guess would be the NCR, was trounced a couple of times but they beat Carthage anyway.

    The beginning. Would rather be vaporized in atomic fire than deal with the individuals that survive the genocide. It would be more bearable than watching people try to rebuild greatness; as Rome will never be rebuilt on this Earth.

    The only other area would be working under Mr. House as his end goal is reasonable; to leave this god forsaken rock and begin anew.

    Pretty much, except the negative effect on the NCR is bigger. The Mojave and Arizona become war torn badlands, fought over by the Legion's remnants and the NCR is weakened by the constant fighting (already on the stretching point by New Vegas).

    The NCR would collapse and break into city states; as it was originally. Simply due to the fact its citizens have grown accustom to a certain way of life. Which prolonged war with the Legion would end as it would suck up all the resources of said life.

    Possibly, I still think the NCR would exist, but surrounded by independence movements like in Vault City, New Reno and especially in Ghoul areas (why stay around with a sinking ship?). Shady Sands and the area near it would probably stay loyal.

    The NCR suffers from the fact it forced a many of the city states into it though; even recently. The old leaders of those areas most likely would jump at first glance that the military will do jack shit.

    The military itself could become a military dictatorship and call itself the NCR though. Either way all paths lead to some sort of civil war or portions leaving in mass.

    True, but it depends on how strong the NCR presence is. New Reno won't leave, but it sure will practice more autonomy. Vault City would leave and so would Necropolis and the Glow.
