I'm an independent developer. Also a big fan of pinochet.

Currently developing a 2d open world game inspired by Fallout.

Theres this one questline where you meet a group of irradiated feminists at an old blown out commune. They call themselves 'radfems' lol. They're a bunch of irradiated ghouls, and unlike fallout, they're the only 'intelligent' ones, "though I don't know if intelligent is the right word" a local guide npc quips. If you talk to them they complain about beauty standards, and how 'having hair and smooth skin is sexist propoganda from a patriarchy long dead. It's 2023 people!"

You can choose to airlift them out to a 'better place' and then dump them from the helicopter.

After I was awakened to all the shit going on, I played through fallout 3 and realized all the propagandist bullshit in it. Had no problem killing the 'border hoppers' at tenpenny towers when the devs obviously intended us to feel some sort of sympathy against the 'vile racist bigots.' And here were these virtual people just trying to survive, trying to be left alone, not wanting to be surrounded by literal monsters who, at a moments notice could turn into bloodthirsty mindless killers.

10/10 would reverse pick-pocket again.

I think the propaganda is subverted in your example from Fallout 3, though. If you aid the invaders and get them into the tower even if it is entirely peaceful, when you return there later all the humans will be dead and the ghouls will have taken over. The jumpers massacre the natives and commandeer the fruits of their labour.

I can see where you're coming from. Just the notion though, that the devs played that card is bs, as if anyone that saw clearly would have trouble making that call, but maybe I'm cherry picking. Was the same when I played through the walking dead games ftw, and I think those are worse. I realized how often the 'tough decisions' were just cheap sympathy plays for liberal buyers and suddenly I could see exactly why a character like larry acted the way he did.

Meanwhile theres race-mixing and gay-pride on the likes of the walking dead and cucks eat that show up like candy, anti-capitalist garbage in fallout, game companies left and right saturating their games with social justice appeals for outrage dollars in their marketing plans, some of which are probably genuine appeals, people such as that shitlord running naughty dog, and all sorts of companies and products across the media spectrum just shitting all over their customers in order to satisfy a small angry minority of professional shitstirrers and #metoo faggots seeking attention.

The only time I have ever enjoyed diversity in a game was in uncharted when you got to fight "black female rambo" and punch the uppity bitch in her obnoxious mouth.

I blew up megaton.

Please play Fallout 1+2 before you continue with your game. For educational purposes.

Yeah but 10 penny hired a thug to set off the nuke and destroy megaton. So they had to die.

I killed Tenpenny but not the rest on my last playthrough.

10 Penny was scum, the rest of them weren't.
