Does anyone else play to "retire"?

When I play Fallout. I play to retire.I know that the game is going to end for me, and there will come a time when I dont play a particular series in Fallout anymore, so when I play, I think about my characters future. I collet everything of value that I can and store it away. This includes food smokes and alcohol. Because I spend so much time in a Fallout game, and become so attached to my character I feel the weight and responsibility to make sure he or she is taken care of for life. There will come a time when I say goodbye to the person I have spent so much time training, teaching and helping grow. I feel a compulsion at end game as a parent that I want them to be able to retire when I put the game down for good. Enough food, smokes and drink. Enough ammo weapons and armor and enough high value loot to keep him or her in caps for life. To make sure they never have to worry again. Then I try and create a semi-detailed idea in my head about what they will do to enjoy life after I am gone. Like a big house on Lake Meade, Opening a saloon or even a casino.

Am I alone?

Not quite as in-depth as you, but I play the game as though my character were me. I make all decisions that I would make in that situation in real life. Tons of fun.

is strange how attached you get to the Character isn't it? trying to survive in a Wasteland isn't easy and you feel in the Role of a Father... Most People play for the action,we play for the feeling that this might be the future,and your Son will experience it after you pass on.

-Three Dog's speech about not being in New Vegas

By the time I got to the end of FO3 with each character I had so many caps built up that my characters could comfortably retire even if they lost everything else.  I expect the same will be true of all my FNV characters.

When I finally retire I plan to have my character in his/her safe house with all the special items displayed around.

For male I plan to have him dressed in Benny's suit or a White Glove tux or a DLC unique.

For female Vera Dress.

Also saved in third person with the camera facing the front of my character whom is sitting down.

Which is what I did in FO3.

Only thing now is which safe house should I have them retire to...

My character is very similar to myself, which means my fridge is stocked with whiskey, my guns are loaded and ready to rock n' roll and I have enough ammo to take on the Legion by myself with at least 1000 rounds of .308 to spare.

Think about which one you'd want to end up spending your retirement years in.  Lucky 38 is the nicest and best equipped, plus it has plenty of entertainment near by.

[/quote]Maybe to you, but a lot of people see differently. It is not uncommon for people to get attached to their characters in RPG's. Hmm, I guess that's why it's called a "Role Playing Game".

If you're playing games you're already wasting time.

 

As the Captain says, people already invest huge amounts of time in this game, what's an extra couple of hours getting things just so.  Just because there isn't a quest for it or achievements to earn doesn't mean that doing this is any more a waste of time than playing a game is to begin with.  Gaming is about having fun, whether that means playing those parts of the game that developers intend like quests or spending time getting your safe house decorated the way you like and setting up your character as though they would continue on once you stop playing, ultimately if you have fun doing it then you should go for it.

I play it how I would be in the real world. Whatever benefits me more is usually what I will aim for. I also purge the land of bad people that have *** against others will , in-slave and kill for sport. :)
