Oh c'mon, now you HAVE to put a tribute somewhere to the boy somewhere in the game! <3

I actually like how a lot of developers are kind enough to fulfill wishes like this.

gamer780425d ago

that would be great if they would, even so, nice of them to think about even something little they can do to lift someones spirits.

RealOldGamer25d ago

Yep I really hope they do this.

Such a sad story.

Imagine if they replied to his request with:
"Sorry bro!"

XD He's wandering around the wasteland all by himself. No people for PVP and no NPCs for quests lol

But for real I absolutely love reading these stories and seeing companies do these things for fans whether it's seeing a movie months early, or getting to play games months early such as Fallout 76 or also recently Smash. No massive publicity stunt, just good-hearted people doing something very kind.

Always hearing about cancer kids meeting a celebrity, playing some game, or getting to know the end of One Piece but I really wonder if any of them come up with weird wishes like pimping out his hospital room or something.

"..know the end of One Piece"

Really? That's really incredible because I would definitely like to know this

thatguyhayat25d ago

Yep a child with cancer was told the ending of one piece whispered to him

Felix_Argyle_Catbro25d ago

No, that was a fake story. But some people still believe it.

PhantomS4225d ago

If you haven't watched the Batkid Begins documentary about how an entire city coordinated to make this kid become Batman for a day. They had several actors dress up as the old TV show versions of the Batman villains and had this kid solve puzzles and stop crime. It was so amazing to see something that large-scale come together for him.

Felix_Argyle_Catbro25d ago

The story about a child getting the end of One Piece told to him was fake. Can't believe that people still believe it years later.

drpepperdude25d ago

I think I saw it on here, so I just thought it happened. For all I know a majority of these stories could be made up and doesn't really matter to me if it actually happened or not, still a interesting idea for one of these kids.

Eee... Great, but isn't Fallout 16+ ? Don't get me wrong, I don't give a * about rating, when I was teenager I played everything I wanted and I know that psychological tests show that there is no reason for that kind of censorship, but isn't it a little odd on Bethesda side to do it so officially?

PlayableGamez-25d ago

They more than likely got permission from the parents.

Lynx020725d ago (Edited 25d ago )

Oh, I see. So in US rating is only for parents and if they are ok with the kid playing games that are 16+ or 18+ that is not illegal?

WeebLord25d ago

The age ratings on the title ARE NOT censorship. What's up with people's fixation with that word of late?

Lynx020725d ago

They are not. But forbidding young people playing violent games is. At least that is how the word works in my language.

Profchaos25d ago (Edited 25d ago )

Well considering the kid won't live to be that age who is this really hurting.

Psych tests etc are also not conclusive and have failed to prove that video games on growing children are solely responsible for acts of violence. Often it's a combination of poor parenting in a toxic environment and violent media and issues making friends.

sprinterboy25d ago (Edited 25d ago )

Awesome, didn't realise they do "make a wish" for the terminally I'll kids and there families.
