So anyway, I thought I'd try playing Fallout. I've been to the following areas so far: Shady Sands, Radscorpion Caves, Vault 15, Raider's Camp, Junktown, Hub, Deathclaw cave.
Overall I enjoyed Vault 15 the most, it was dark and eerie with huge mutant animals. The Radscorpion caves were also OK, if a bit monotonous, but quite challenging & scary to take them all down myself (no NPCs) with only a pistol. However, as for the rest... meh. Of the human settlements, I like Junktown the best, because it reminds me a lot of Wasteland with the Hotel, and the competing factions in town.
However, overall I'm currently frustrated by the fact that I'm spending the vast majority of my time exploring human settlements, talking to people, and (to a lesser extent) fighting people. I don't mind doing some of this type of thing, but I didn't expect it to be most of the game so far! I want more strange/bizarre/hostile places to explore.
So my question is, should I continue playing Fallout? (I'm still currently exploring Hub). Does it get more bizarre/hostile? Or is the rest pretty much similar to what I've been playing so far? I know there are walkthroughs and such out there, but I don't want to read them to spoil the game for me if I choose to continue on. I'd just like some general comments from those who have played it on what I can expect. Thanks in advance .
