Greetings, thanks for all the replies.
>Ancient Gamer: Yay, always good to find another Fallout fan.
I don't know what exactly cheers me up in that game, I first came across Fallout 2 when my brother (a year younger than me) had borrowed it from his buddy and left the game open when he left the room. I stared at it for a while, moved the character carefully and finally asked him if I could try. He said that would be alright, since he didn't understand much of it, though he had found all the way to Klamath already. (His English skills at the moment were quite poor.) But anyway, soon I was getting ahead of him with my own saved games and it was me who finished the game. Later I have played it several times and finished three times. I was always mostly a modern gunslinger with some sneaky abilities, somehow I never had the forbearance for developing Talking skill. Strange, that doesn't sound like me at all... :-/
I also played the original Fallout once, but I found it terribly depressing and I remember having nightmares about being sunk into an enormous vat, all wrapped up in cloth and unable to move... Which does sound a bit sexy when you think about it... Ahem... :-}
Anyway, probably I will search a game to join soon, though I am d**n lazy, like said before.
>esaquam: I like the idea of people forced into living by the rules of nature, probably a contaminated, mutant-ridden desert ruined by their own actions. Weapons are good for posing and all, but I dislike the idea of some people being just NPCs that are blasted off without a thought. Recently I have played a lot of pacifistic or weak characters, after seeing so many friends die (in game).
I wish people would make less boring titles, since I cannot force myself to view dozens of discussions that include stuff like.
"hi. umm, I have this grreeat idea. it's about a wizard and a warrior that go killing some trolls in the mountains and then they find this big mean troll that they need to join their forced and build an ÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¼ber magic weapon of some sort. yeah pleez every one join and I tell you what happens then, I swear this will be so cool!!!
And then half a dozen people chatting in friendly
fashion about how *sarcasm*great*/sarcasm* idea it is. Ok. Luckily I haven't come across anything that terrible yet. But if this site is totally free of that stuff, I'll be terribly surprised.
By the way I just checked "View more Emoticons" and you got some great options here...
