On my first playthrough i was blown away by mr house and sided with him almost immediately. Not only was he cool, a 200 year old fallout style tony stark who has the last Civilized area in post war america, he presents you with the frame work for his plan which i will quote below


"New Vegas is more than a city, it's the remedy to Mankind's...derailment. The city's economy is a blast furnace in which can be forged the steel of a new rail line, running straight to a new horizon.
What is the NCR? A society of people desperate to experience comfort, ease, luxury... A society of customers. Give me 20 years and i'll reignite the high technology development sectors. 50 years
and i'll have people in orbit. 100 years and my colony ships will be heading for the stars, to search for planets unpolluted by the wrath and folly of a bygone generation. I'm not offering you an
incentive as crude as money - although there will be plenty of it. What I'm offering you is a ground floor opportunity in the most important enterprise on Earth. What I'm offering is a future. For
you...and for what remains of the human race."



These are some massive promises, even for someone as smart and prepared as Mr. House. Is this a matter of overconfidence, a downright lie or do you think house really could have obtained this? it should be noted even with all his safeguards he never knew about yes man so clearly his isnt as omnipotent or invincible as he thinks he is.


What do you guys think?

To know if the guy is potentially lying, what you do is look at what the character does. Mr. House is shown to be ruthless and a little eccentric, but never once is he shown to be a liar. In fact, if the character has any flaws is the fact that he's too honest. He sees human interaction as a purely logical game of exchanging value. He always trust people to be logical and act in their best interests and doesn't realize sometimes people are just too stupid to understand what their best interest are, like the Omertas, who despite having money and power and living in luxury want to side with Caesar, under the impression that they will rule Vegas, even though anybody who has even superficial understanding of what the legion is could tell you why they're essentially committing seppuku.

Now, is he actually capable of achieving what he promises? Well, why wouldn't he? He's responsible for most of the advanced technology you find in game. He saved himself and Vegas from the total nuclear destruction that consumed the entire world. He has the means and the knowledge to achieve what he wants. I've seen people who are so irrationally skeptic of the idea but they've never been able to produce a good reason why. One guy in fandom (BTW don't ever go to fandom, I made the mistake and it's a total cesspool) told me "space travel for a post apocalyptic society is just pie in the sky". That was his whole reason. As if 100 years of economic and industrial development, combined with all the amazing pre war scientific knowledge wouldn't be able to produce space travel in any society.

Ultimately it's never an issue for me because here's the thing. In a world that has been turned into a toxic ruin, there's nothing more important than abandoning Earth. Maybe House can't deliver on his promises. But if House can't, the courier can't, and NCR sure as hell can't, and the Legion, well, it doesn't even need to be said.

very solid analysis, i agree with everything and actually think he could swing it, especially considering what lies inside of big MT. If the legion knows about it, house does to and while it would be a giant challenge to get inside and recover the technology i think he could do it.
