    Tranquility Lane is pretty much the best part of Fallout 3 and it's a shame that it's so short but I figured that it was better to keep it that way than stay out of its welcome. It's one of the few places where Fallout 3 doesn't try to retell an abbreviated 3rd person version of the original isometric games but does it's own thing. If we'd had more of these sorts of quests I think the game would have even better of a reputation.

    I'm inclined to think that you really have to do the evil version as well as the good version to get an appreciation for just what a sadistic piece of crap that its master is. It's also a bit of a shame that he's not the main villain because, Malcolm McDowell or not, he's infinitely more threatening than John Henry Eden.

    I wish Braun played some major part truly, his mindset and brain as warped they are, would proof useful to repopulate the earth and save humanity with advanced techs. I wish there is option to blackmail him into developing stuff in exchange for "companion" or "fun scripts". Either synthetic programs (if you are good karma) or actual people (if you are bad karma). He's the closest thing to Merovingian from Matrix.

    This is actually kind of a genius idea

    I always thought they missed an opportunity by not having the pint size slasher wear a Vault Boy mask instead of the clown.

    I think Tranquility Lane could’ve been way better. I would’ve gladly had that part of the story saved for a full DLC instead of Mother Shit Zeta.
