For me, I wouldn't consider committing suicide. At least try to support survivors who try to live out in the wastes would probably be one of my goals before dying.


Man try at lest to survive so what if you die you live in California its a big place thats why your chances to die are increased but there is better loot,better weapons and better places to set up so you should try to survive and find or make a group or better a faction people in Honest Heards survive even they are like primitives but they survive so why dont you do the same and go blow some zombie,mutant,ape skulls eh

You could be at least optimistic Wink

Hard to be optimistic about the world getting nuked into the stone age, much less radiation in the water, air, ground, plants, pretty much all lifeforms... and that doesn't even touch on raiders, looters, potential mutations of various species, cancer, etc.

;P

Haha sorry!

When I first started playing Fallout 3 (was my first real 'post-apocalyptic' game) and saw how ruined everything was... like how stepping into a shallow puddle was exposting me to radiation... it really resonated with me, I thought 'wow, no way in hell would I want to live in a world like this'.

And even now 3 years-ish later I still feel that way. Just the creepy mutations, the people who kill each other instead of working together to survive, the struggles of things like keeping even the most basic of devices working etc... I just couldn't handle that. And don't even get me started on the 'vaults' themselves. It blows my mind just how twisted some of the stories behind those are...

Let's hope that nothing of that happens during our lifetime, because I really believe that there will be no warning and thus... no time for vaults..

The situation doesn't have to be remotely exact to the Fallout series. Maybe people will work together since people have probably seen or played a game similar to Fallout. Moral standards today could have a different outcome in a time of an apocalypse. But I can't wait to hear a radio station similar to Galaxy News Radio.

I totally agree Blackcat.  I never want to see something like that even on a small scale.

@Undeadsewer,

Except the topic was in fact based on the premise of it being like Fallout. "If a Fallout actually occurred with a similar plot to the game, how would you survive the apocalypse? "

Hence our sticking to Fallout's 'rules' in our replies.

I'd go back to Canada because no one would ever bomb Canada, right? If we're in the Fallout universe, then Canada was already annexed by the time the bombs hit, but the OP meant if this happened in real life, then hell yeah Canada!

For realsies though, let's say that everywhere is hit. I wouldn't have an overarching agenda. I live my life in short term, achievable goals. I wouldn't start a faction, we would just be people looking to live. I can't really answer who I would trust; that comes on a case-by-case basis. I'm sure coming into the apocalypse with open arms will lead to betrayal, but by that point I'd hope to have enough fellow survivors that we could offset the consequences of seeing the best of people. I understand the arguments that if this were to happen, there'd be no point in sticking around, but I don't think in terms of "where is my life going," but rather "where is today going?" The long term design would shape itself in time.

Bonus answer: I side with the living. Anyone with that common goal is on my side.

Sorry for not being clear. Sad

What I meant was don't make it seem as if you were inside the Fallout game. Instead of Ghouls, you have zombie-like cannibals wandering the streets. Project Purity could be another project with a different name, etc. Instead of it being a Vault, you were inside an ordinary Fallout shelter with a couple survivors who survived the initial explosions.

No worries lol, just explaining why I based most of my answers on stuff like that in the game.

Even still though, I wouldn't want to live in that kind of world.  Whether it was exactly like the game or nothing like it, I'd rather be dead.

This is actually a VERY cool topic btw. Smile

If I really wanted to live out Fallout, I would try to freeze myself over a couple hundred years as the Fallout series isn't post apocalyptic, its post-post apocalyptic. Focusing on the events of a wasteland that is dealing with all the turmoil of which factions are struggling to control the new world. IMO nuclear war is a terrible thing but wouldn't be as bad as some people think. I've read some places that the effects of fallout and nuclear fire are exaggerated by media and whatnot. And that a nuclear war wouldn't be like a post-apocalyptic genocide, more like the fall of the Roman empire with new civilizations springing up in the aftermath (much like Fallout). Despite this, I live in a place that's fairly near to a major city (L.A.) as well as military bases, so I would probably die in the first few days. I pretty much doubt nuclear war happening as long as M.A.D. exists. Still, if a nuclear war were to occur I have hope that some small town somewhere will help the human race as well as the memory of America survive in history.
God Bless America

Not quite sure if it could happen, but it's possible to say the least. Smile

But what if a faction found you frozen and held you captive when you unfroze?

I'd stock up on supplies,and wait it out.If I survive long enough I would want to help rebuild civilization as an Engineer,sorry for a short answer.
Thanks for this interesting topic!

I'd probably end up trying to survive off radiated animals and water, then I'll end up dead of radiation poisoning, if I'm not a ghoul already, if I'm lucky, I could get me a gun and ammo, then blow my brains out.

Probably become a paranoid Sniper and set up a few mines along my area. Take pot shots at anything I see coming or shoot a mine to scare them off.

Do you mind if I take one of those landmines for a present? Need to do it for some research. TongueTril

I would prove my worth against whatever faction held me hostage. Like a prophet of some sorts retaining the knowledge of the old time. Then they could hopefully accept me. I.e. The Brotherhood of Steel being assholes when you first meet them in Fallout 1

I like the idea of retaining Old World ideas to receive some type of God-like status. Maybe there's a faction similar to the Brotherhood who aim to preserve anything Pre-War (and possible preserve humans too?)
