Yeah, even if it was an option, Fallout 1 & 2 didn't have realtime so it didn't -belong- in 3. Looking back, Bethesda reviving Fallout 3 as a shooter was the best way they could have trolled NMA.

If they hated even the concept of Van Buren, I wonder what they thought of New Vegas, which took a lot of ideas from Van Buren and is widely regarded as the best Fallout game by many.

Don't half of them loathe the canon-destroying abomination that is Fallout 2? Better not tell them about New Vegas just yet.

Pretty sure the entire point of that community was to hate literally everything that wasn't Fallout 1. They were never happy about anything at all and just wanted Fallout 1 to be repeated all over, apparently.

I mean Fallout was a good game but the games it led to were generally just plain better. 3 and New Vegas weren't perfect but they were still pretty good; New Vegas especially.

Just had a look at NMA, blast from the past right there.

By far the most active thread in their general discussion is called "Feminism and why it's bad" (unironically cites an amazing athiest video).

Also the description of the General Fallout Discussion board says "Do not post anything related to Fallout 3 on this board.".

No Mutants Allowed had an admin so abrasive and rude that he was immortalized in Fallout Tactics (iirc) as an abrasive, rude old man who sold Nuka Cola bottles that he was just pissing in to refill.

Why Bethesda didn't put in a M'aiq The Liar analogue in either of their Fallouts is beyond me. There's just so much. You've got NMA stuff, you've got neo-NMA stuff from folks who thought New Vegas was better than/equal to 3 or 4...

To be fair, Bethesda probably don't think so, and a tasteful, light jab at the game would be perfect for a M'aiq analogue.

I once got banned from a casual guild in WoW for only raiding once a week.

The guild leader got my phone number from a mutual friend in the guild to do it over the phone.

That's pretty creepy.

I've always found it disturbing how hardcore raiding guilds basically demand that you submit all of your waking hours to them and get pissy if you have other commitments.

I play video games to relax or burn off stress in my free time, not turn it into a second job with demands to be on-call for.

That's crazy. Looking through the Facebook group, these people can only see the world through content warnings. Even comments on the articles are such as, "hey you missed a content warning for 'food'." I was hoping to see a meltdown, but from what the article says those are quickly deleted and life goes on like nothing happened.

Do they still have the multi-tiered "content notes are different from content warnings are different from trigger warnings, label one in the wrong category and get banned" system? Because if not, the current state of things may actually be less uptight than it was when I posted my banme from that group.

It's usually someone with a past of eating disorders. Which you can almost see the logic, but guess what, food's always going to be a part of basic biology, and you're stupid for needing a trigger warning on it.
