    Ok, here I was, final battle, Counter-Insurgency Program activated, I have four friendly Enclave soliders, Frank was about to hit the 999 mark when Frank critical hits me, scoring a 349 hit, thus killing me.

    I was about to get angry, but then I remember, I saved just before that.

    So, I'd laughed.

    Cant think of any specific examples except when in FO1 Killian's assassin knocked him out and combat ended before Killian "awoke". I was able to talk to him and get the mission with him still lying on his back. I rested until the night and he was still on his back but this time in room.

    So I thought maybe he'd reset during the morning or something, so I rested until the morning and he was still on his back but this time in the store.

    I sometimes have a more evil laugh when I succeed in killing everyone in the BoS. Another happy moment for me is talking to Sulik, That bone is so hilarious!!!

    Well, I'm there fighting lo pan. I kick him back to the ground andd he pulls out his gun. I have 12 hp so I think I'm fucked.

    He bursts and misses. I walk up to him and kick him in the head for a massive critical.

    Hey guys! First post! I hope it's worth it.

    My first time playing fallout, but this scene stuck to me.
    I was in New Reno, reeeeeady to beat some ass. After the 3rd boxer I decided to call it a day - was running low on hp, and it was relatively late in the game - I already had the .233 pistol, lots of AP, Sniper and better criticals. (I was lucky in character creation, I admit it.) I didn't have much to prove, was not aware of the Prizefighter Karma tag, so I figured that the money were not worth it. So I decide to steal the little guy's stimpack, after saving. My party consists of Sulik with a Mega Power Fist. I fail, the little guy attacks me. Does nothing, and goes off after one shot to the eyes. The next boxer dies in the same fashion, so does the third. I may suck at HtH, but I do know how to use that gun. All of a sudden a boxer attacks Sulik. WHAM! Critical, 23 damage. Sulik falls down like a tree, dragging along the floor for three or four hexes. This is the first time I see Sulik whacked so hard. I had seen him nearly killed by bullets and such, but a critical from a pistol for 45 hp is one thing, and seeing an unarmed attack doing that sort of damage to Sulik is scary, if you hadn't played the game before. (I hadn't seen such models before back then anyway, and those boxers sure look mighty). Sulik had never been given anything different than melee weapons, so he was, like, my HtH hero. Each time I stood up against those goons in the ring I knew, that Sulik would've taken them easily. And there he was now, taking a punch through his armor, and with an unarmed attack. Sulik slowly gets up. The combat speed is normal, so it did take some time. He runs over to that huge boxer and with a single punch sends the boxer dragging till he reaches the wall. 10 or 12 hexes. Boxer was critically hit for 213 hit points and was killed. Way to go, boxing champs! And I had my ass handed over to me by that same muscular wuss. I cannot begin to explain how awesome that felt . . . I was but a kid back then, though.

    Couple of days ago decided to replay the game, after many years, this time on Hard/Rough. If you haven't done it, do it. Takes the game to a whole different level, brings back suspense and makes it a bit scary. And yeah, random encounters are dangerous. Facing any punk with a gun is a real challenge. If he has an automatic weapon be ready for a swift death if you don't kill him fast. It was a total nightmare . . . and the Magnum revolver does no damage. I don't know why, it just does. Unless it scores a critical. But with fast shot . . . forget it. Single shots are pointless. You need a fast kill, for which you need point-blank range, because, on hard/rough, you roll low, you miss often and all enemies are better than you. And while you are fully capable of not killing someone with a burst at point-blank with 180% small guns, you recieve 45 hp critical hits from stupid 10mm pistols. It's not fair.

    So . . . named my character Punisher (yeah, I know, it's lame) and made him a small guns/big guns specialist with fast shot. With a leather jacket(yesterday cleared the Enclave with it, yay for Mad Max) and a combat shotgun with 700+ shells and Cassidy, with the same weapon and 500+ shells, Sulik with a Combat knife, we, after clearing up Vault city (btw a Combat Shotgun burst rarely does more than 12 dmg on metal armor on that difficulty level, which really sux) enter Redding. We went to the Wanamingo mine and were, literally, obliterated. We barely managed to kill 2 aliens on our own. By the time we kiledl the 3rd, the fourth was already kicking our butts. Ugly. So I decided to use the old shoot-once-retreat tactic. 7 saves, 11 hours and over 600 shells later I had 4 out of 8 wanamingos killed. On the first floor. Being fully aware, that that tactic is one hex short of cheating, since they cannot really harm you if you constantly run away, that didn't help the situation. So it was a frustrating experience, which lost me almost all the ammo for my weapon and did no good whatsoever.
    So I start moving my butt around the wastes, till someone, finally, mentions the NCR, telling me how to get there (yeah, I know every location of every city by heart, but my character doesn't. Gotta stay in character.) I go there. Rob the guards of their bozars and ammo. Trade in all shotguns, pistols and hunting rifles in, get a Jackhammer for Cassidy. (The guns were taken from back when we massacred Metzger and his men, with the help of Jet, Psycho, Buffout AND Mentats. And a few of Tubby's guns.). I go back to Redding.
    After all the abuse I got from those aliens and doing critical strikes for 24 damage with a burst attack it's a bliss to see them dance to your non-critical 460+ damage bursts. I relived the joy of playing the best RPG ever.

    I was in Junktown in FO1 and I'd messed up the dialog with the casino owner and he sent his body guard to kill me. The bodyguard missed and fell on his ass for four damage. That's when I was 100% positive Fallout was the best game ever.

    Last night I was playing Fallout at 4am piss wasted and I had just entered Necropolis i went inside one of the rooms to see a Ghoul gooning it out by a shelf. I went to search the shelf and the Ghoul was all like Don't mess with my shit or w/e and proceeded to attack me. So I'm like break yo self foo! brat! brat! the Ghoul die but then his boys where like "Whha, smoothskin be thinkin he big papa" before they could reach me I poped some caps. Anyway after the massacre was complete I go back to the shelf to search it to find absolutely nothing. I just laughed to myself like " damn, those Ghouls be stupid".

    Not really something I did but the unintentional messages for damage made me laugh like crazy.

    You have been hit for 0 damage. Feel the pain

    You have been hit for 2123 damage. The pain is great, but you only flinch.

    I was fighting a radscorpion in the ToT in FO2. Had 40% melee weapons and 14% throwing, yet I had a higher chance of throwing the spear at point-blank, than to actually stab the bastard. Weird as hell . . . :shock:

    I remember having to kill the entire Enclave to get the FOB. I must've said something wrong to the guard and he wanted me to fetch some papers that are nowhere to be found (instead of pretending to be the cleaner in Power Armor ;)).

    So... I picked up my gang (Sulik, Marcus and Cassidy) and started the killing. After having shot the first couple of people Sulik decided to run off around a corner. Apparently he wasn't aware there were 3 Enclave soldiers standing right around that corner. The next round Sulik was no more...

    Marcus also died a horrible death. Only Cassidy and I survived the massacre. First time I killed off the entire Enclave :).

    When people got shot by fully automatic guns and parts of them got shot off. In fact, even when I play Fallout nowadays I still laugh.

    Well, one time in Fallout, I had given Ian an SMG, so I took to standing behind him and using him as a human shield. Then occured an even that just made me stop and think. While fighting some mantis, Ian did a burst apon them, while I was behind him, as in he was pointed the other way. Then, get this, its hilarious, I get a little message that Ian missed the mantis, and Accidentaly hit me for enough damage to have my chest blown open. He has got to be the best trick shooter in the world when it comes to hitting you.

    Fighting Lo Pan. He pulls the gun., crit mises, and drops it. I run over, pick it up, and shoot him in the groin, critically, killing him.

    Afterwards, everyone was congratulating me for my honour. Fucked up honour system right there.

    Any time someone critically misses, injures self, and dies from it is pretty amusing. One time I had a radscorpion knock himself down, get hurt and cripple a limb (jinxed ftw!). Like most critters with crippled limbs, he gets up and runs away for the rest of his turn. Only then does he notice his hit points are negative, and dies without falling down.

    I can always get a good laugh from punching rats in the groin with the mega power fist.


    Also, I enjoy grampy bone a little too much.

    I remember playing as a 'torr-esque' dimwit in FO2 and talking to the midget trainer in New Reno. One of the dialogue options was

    "(Beat the little man and take his lunch money.)"

    Made me chuckle for a while... then I became sad when I realized something like that will never be in FO3.
