Why does /v/ shit on Bethesda for wacky nonsensical writing when pic related is worst than anything Bethesda has ever done?
Why the fuck would the NCR even hire him, it makes no sense and was basically just Obsidian being random lol for the sake of it
Fallout always has wacky stuff in it, especially in Fallout 2. Bethesda is just shit at it, makes it inconsistent as fuck and poorly handled in general. Fantastic's dialogues were fantastic, you pleb. He just bullshitted his way through the job interview, he's a charisma character in normal RPGs.
First, pic related.
Second, there would have been no quest if there were someone decent in his place. He isn't doing shit, you get opportunity to fix it yourself, burn profligates with orbital laser. EZ.
>Massive, bloated republic stretched beyond its capacity into the Mojave
>Walk past the escaped NCR prisoners who are murdering and marauding all over due to the NCR not being able to spare the manpower to stop them
>Walk past the town the Powder Gangers are harassing while the NCR just watch from across the highway because they have no men and are incompetent
>Walk past the massive outpost where all the NCR people just sit around drinking and doing nothing
>Walk past the NCR-controlled energy plant where they don't have anyone who actually knows anything about running it, so they hired a complete fucking idiot, but they don't know exactly because the Follower of the Apocalypse "understudy" is managing to iron out most of his big fuck ups
There isn't anything "random lol" about Fantastic. One of the things I like about NV over 3 was that every sidequest pretty much helped inform the player of the overall conflict and story in the world. 3 was just a bunch of disconnected, modular instances of wacky or weird or cool setpieces.
>Implying yes man isn't the patrician's choice.
Yes man is normie comfort zone. If you're a grown up, you have to admit you're not the best fit to rule to Mojave. Be Cincinnatus or George Washington, not some 3rd world dictator
The Courier is literally wasteland cowboy Jesus and the most powerful character in the history of Fallout, will live an incredibly long time thanks to being a cyborg, and is armed with tech from the Sierra Madre and Big MT, which far outclasses anything House has
This guy gets it. This is a western, and the courier is the biggest dick swinging. The Wyatt Earp of the Mojave. If anyone wants to start trouble, they're more then welcomed to, but they've got to deal with someone that punches the heads of legendary deathclaws for a laugh.
The bad ass mother fucker that single handedly wrecked the Legion, and sent the NCR packing with a look.
It lets New Vegas become an independent city state. The NCR can now focus on consolidating the west, while the Legion crumbles like rome and civilization rises in its ashes.
Nigger, I have 10 in every SPECIAL, 100 in almost every stat, a metric ton of gold from Sierra Madre, enough power armors and futuristic guns to build a new BoS chapter from scratch, friends in the NCR, the followers, the Remenants, the BoS and the Big MT. Every place in the Mojave worships me. I have a silo full of nukes in the Divide ready to launch. I am in all aspects better than the fucking golden God-Emperor of Mankind and also a better person. Yes, I am fitter for ruling than a halfcorpse obsessed with "muh strip glam and fedora class"
