The Most Important Decision You Will Ever Make in Fallout

Jeffrey Matulef writes, "I recently purchased Fallout: New Vegas as a birthday present for my lovely girlfriend. I've not played it yet, but watching her game I was struck by a familiar sight that gave me a rush of anxiety; the stat picking screen. For those who've not played one of the later Fallout games or Oblivion, you have to put a finite amount of points into such categories as Strength, Endurance, Luck, etc… These stats cannot be rearranged for the rest of the game. I always lock up when I encounter such a choice, worried that if I make the wrong choices the game will be significantly less fun. How am I to know what going to be practical later on down the road?"

To summarise the article for everyone. He wants Fallout or any future game to allow you to alter your stats.

Fallout 3 was better then NV. it almost felt like a downgrade.

It takes me like 30 minutes just to choose my next perks and skill when I level up. I treat that decision like its a matter of win or lose...and because I have a bad habit of taking forever to make choices.

Yep. Must've spent at least 3 hours of my 70+ hours of FO3 just picking my perks and SPECIAL stats.

And to the author, about 5 hours in, I realized I picked my SPECIAL stats kinda wrong (based on my play style). But I just figured no one's perfect, least of all in FO3, and just made the best of it and I still enjoyed it to a degree that I never expected.

Just go with the flow.

In my opinion it's a lot more forgiving with your stat choices than it was in the old days of CRPGs. At least here you generally stand a chance regardless of what special stats you picked.
