Content of the article: "What moment in a Fallout game genuinely made you want to ram your fist through the monitor because of the difficulty?"
So I haven't really posted on here much, so I thought it would be a fun idea to start up a little discussion.
But anyway, I've always been interested in seeing other people's opinions on games, and the Fallout Franchise is no exception. It may be due to all the random encounters and such, but seeing the experiences people have in these games is quite interesting to me. So I wanted to just ask this question out of curiousity:
What moment in a Fallout game was so difficult, it made you want to ram your fist through the monitor?
Now, you all can leave your answers in the comments, but I do wanna share my answer, just for fun.
So then, the most difficult experience I've had with a Fallout game actually comes from the Old World Blues DLC for Fallout: New Vegas. I was on my way to the X-2 Transmitter Antenna Array, and if you've played the game, you'll know there's a fuck ton of Lobotomites in that area (okay im exaggerating but you get the point). At that point, I'd had a pretty rough encounter with some Protectrons and Lobotomites, and I'd used all my stimpacks and a lot of ammo (I'm not very good at aiming), so I was low on supplies. And, this was a particular playthrough where I was playing on Very Hard, meaning that combining all of that created a crockpot of bullshit.
Because of how difficulties work in Fallout: New Vegas, being on Very Hard meant that I might as well have been hitting the enemies with Nerf Guns and Super Soakers, while the enemies were pretty much hitting me with fucking Full-Sized Nukes for bullets. And two of the Lobotomites had 10mm Submachine Guns, which, combined with the greatly increased damage, they might as well have just been rapid-firing missiles at me for how much damage they were doing (once again, the damage descriptions are hyperbole, but you get the idea).
This wasn't the first time a Fallout game had given me quite a bit of trouble, some of those difficult moments include Clearing Fort Strong on the hardest difficulty in Fallout 4 (you can see a pattern of me hating myself), Ridding the Lincoln Memorial of Super Mutants during my first playthrough of Fallout 3 (in which I was going in blind and had no fucking clue what would happen), and then the entirety of my blind playthrough of Fallout 1 (Fallout 2 had given me some trouble, but because I had experience with the mechanics, it wasn't as hard), but these enemies guarding the X-2 Transmitter Antenna Array legit made me want to just break my fucking monitor and keyboard. However, after a week or so away from the game, I took a deep breath, collected myself, and managed to defeat them.
So that's my experience, I am curious to hear what you all have to say. So thanks for reading, I guess, and feel free to leave your experiences in the comments.
