Hmmm... considering I always cover my face whenever I leave house (so nobody would recognize if I'm a ghoul or not), I will probably always be single </3 (so I don't need to be pretty), and my future plans will lead me on to very dangerous path, and I can die anyway BUT would love to do it whole eternity if possible...


YEAH, why not anyway Wink

I would have one of those sappy, first unaccepted and made an outcast storys, then I would save someones life, maybe fending the town from feral ghouls single handed or crawling through a rad filled building to save someone (extra points if they're one of the people who made me an outcast), then everyone will accept me as human and welcome me with open arms, the end Smile

In all honesty: Becoming a ghoul is not really that much of a good alternative as it leaves you strolling around the world without any goal at all. You remember the things that went on before the war and all your dear loved ones but they may already be dead.

It is like saying that it would be amazing to live forever but not considering that with endless life there comes no relief of death when you have gotten sick of it at one point. Some day you have seen it all already and it is just an endless loop.

I would say no:apart from granting , basically, an eternal life, ghoulification(the process of transformation into ghoul) grants absolutely no advantages whatsoever.Not only that one, that turned into ghoul, will be despised by normal humans, which will make him/her unable to settle and live in the good old american post-nuclear society, it won't make one special in any way.One will still(technically) remain a human being with all basic human needs.Surely not getting older and being immune to radiation have it's own benefits, but in the world where one can be murdered for any reason(ususally, just for fun or if one piss somebody off) and with all of that lovely mutated wildlife that hunts ane eats everything that moves such benefits won't matter.At some point, one will probably become even more vulnerable if transformed into ghoul.Like I said, not getting older and being immune to radiation is good, but other than that ghoulification won't save one from bullets, claws, teeth, starvation, dehydration, sleep deprivation and other common dangers of Mojave.

Hell no why would I want to become a zombie that makes no sense at all besides why would I want to give into human superiority bullshit now they feel they're better than me because I am a zombie yep fuck that Lol. But I wouldn't mind turning others into zombies that's more like me there.

depending on what the world is like id like to be a ghoul for example..

hostile war riddled environments with little to no hope of getting out alive would be the perfect place to be a ghoul wear a mask to keep the flies from laying eggs on your face though plus its a good defense feature pull your mask down at an enemy and he'll either p*ss in fear or vomit at the look and smell and then.. you shoot him,

as for civilized society i dont think it would bother me either as i usually have most my face covered due to cold weather and generally keep to myself but id need to keep car air freshener's in my pockets so the decaying flesh smell stops people puking lol

also ghouls seem to go feral after 200-300 years if they take care of themselves or depending on how the mutation effected them

i tend to ramble a bit to much i only wanted to say "yes" lol

In all honesty, living that long, even if it's to survive a world ending nuclear war isn't worth it. Even if there'd be no prejudice towards you (A big if), you'd be in a body you no longer recognise as your own, your whole way of life would be gone and everybody you'd know and love would be dead or in the same boat as you.

Even if all of that isn't enough, looking like smashed lasagna despite whatever age you might be would suck.

It's a question whether or not would you give up your dignity. Would you rather die as a beautiful whole or live as lingering death.

I'd have to consider all the factors, but in the end, probably. Ghouls overall don't seem to have too much of a problem with their conditions, at least in the more civilized places like New Vegas or NCR. Although there's the "you'd get sick of living" argument made against eternal life in general, even if all your hobbies get boring, there's always the ability to help others, which is why I'd probably do it. Having dozens or hundreds of lifetimes worth of time to acquire knowledge and skills and pass them on to innumerable people in multiple generations just seems like a really good and practical thing to do, so all things considered, as long as you're not in constant pain, I'd probably do it, find a place where ghouls are treated half-decently, and make the best of it.

Being a ghoul is no fun. Rotting flesh, horrible smell, being treated badly by bigots and so on. But I simply can't say no to immortality. I wonder why Mr House didn't just turn himself into a ghoul. I'm sure he had the means to do that
Huh, come to think of it I wonder why he chose to be locked like that

I wouldn't want to be a ghoul because they get treated bad in fallout for some reason no one likes ghouls.

@"NeoSnow" 1up 100% agree. Plus if you're immortal, you have time to fix the aforementioned issues.

Being met with a "Gah! Fuck! What are you?" every time wouldn't be too fun, nor would the rotting flesh and rads and all that. That's gonna be a no.

I wouldn't WANT to be a ghoul, nor would I choose to be one.

I don't think a lifespan that outlives a lot of your friends would be great, just the same I don't think I'd want to live an extended lifespan with really, really, ugly people for a few centuries.

Also, you'd become the target of prejudice which means you could likely be killed before you even live out your life. Even in the context of your question, it seems to me life without limit; is life without meaning. Food for thought.
