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?
