    ...where you say like f*** you and such that was an easy pick simply because I would have said the same thing.

    HAHA yeah. You know, as much as people complained about the voiced protagonist thing (which I get), they did a pretty damn good job in a lot of the parts with the dialogue and voice acting. Father's vocal responses are some of the best/hardest to handle in the game. IMO. And even though people don't like being forced into 4 options, I actually quite enjoy a lot of it. The main difficulty is if you want to play a really, really evil/dark character. Tough to pull off. Even when you get to Nuka World and start setting up Raider outposts, your character's modd is still way too congenial.

    You could go the Josef Mengele or Toffee route, act polite, congenial, and even welcoming to your foes while plotting how to gut 'em

    I agree at first I hated the voiced protagonist, but it kind of grew on me and after learning Courtney Taylor did voice I was a little more pleased. I do agree Father's responses do actually have some emotions in them and I thought that was pretty neat. Right, but you can always be a wolf in sheep's clothing, you act kind and then turn around and do evil things in a sense.

    I was playing a sort of jack of all trades build with emphasis on base building/crafting, explosives, and stealth. Of course with a build like that I had the Spray 'n Pray, and of course I had a veritable bandolier of grenades for shoving into pockets because that is the most fun thing to do when you can get away with it. I pickpocketed the fusion core out of a looming enemy in power armor, jammed an explosive down the pants of the raider who stepped out of the depowered armor, and then jammed the core back in as the raider exploded behind me and climbed into my new hot rod. A stimpack and jolt of Psychojet later, that build went from stealth to armored facemurder. Anyone who rounded a corner got followed by a grenade, and I stomped through the smoke with my ridiculous Tommy Gun blazing. I gave the armor to my companion along with a shotgun, making Preston the Little John to my wasteland Robin Hood. The two made a regular habit of clearing out the wasteland as they built up settlements across the Commonwealth. I will never forget their Grand Theft Automech, though. That became a signature move, and I passed around a LOT of Power Armor.

    I wasn't much into Fallout 4 when I began playing it. I just played it like I did with any Fallout game, tried out the settlement stuff which I hated at first, beat the storyline, and that was it. I put it up on my shelf and never touched it again. I tried to replay it again in a month or so later, but I was never the one for roleplaying until I had a talk with some of my friends who roleplayed in every game they played, but I still couldn't get into it. I go back to it because I heard about it getting mods and I was like "Oh, I haven't played Fallout 4 in a while. Why not try it again, but this time with mods" So with the help of mods and some thinking I finally did it and I actually invested myself into the game. I began to think and feel how would I feel if I saw my wife get shot while holding our child and died, and then wake up 200 years not knowing anything. Plus, I added something like being diagnosed with PTSD and having an alcohol addiction. I began to roleplay a broken-hearted man that was hell-bent on finding his child and get revenge for his wife's death, and while battling PTSD and his addiction.

    My recent memorable moment goes to a recent playthrough I did. At first, I sided with the Brotherhood of Steel, but later in the game, I betrayed them and sided with the Minutemen. I know the argument about the Minutemen being weak and less powerful, but there is one thing they do have that is Heart; they are also the only faction to me they are ones with the best chance to grow. I ended up helping the Railroad and combining them with the Minutemen because he was a soldier and he swore he would protect anyone and everyone int he United States so he applied this Synths. The Institute...well fuck those guys is really all I have to say about them. Now, as I said before I was siding with the Brotherhood of Steel, but late one night while drinking with Cait my character had a shining moment. He realized while he liked the Brotherhood for being a military-like group he realized they believed the end justifies the means, and he couldn't agree with that. So he and Cait, who later became his wife, got sober and soon helped the Minutemen and destroyed the Brotherhood and Institute. I went back and helped build major settlements and little safe heavens and such. After conquering the Commonwealth, killing Kellogg, destroying the Brotherhood and Institute, he went back to his house in Sanctuary looked at Shaun's crib while with Cait, and reflected on everything he had done, and it fade to black.

    Thank you, and I would have gone into more detail, but it would really long and no one would probably read it.
