*** That's not hope, it's terrible! I thought I was doing these poor people a favor with my head-shots - now it turns out they aren't incurable?!



* Something about the Animal Friends perk is both scary and saddening. Picture this. You're out in the middle of nowhere, keeping an eye on the map to watch for red blips. Maybe you're trying to get to Oasis, and it's a hell of a trek. You're low on health and have been attacked multiple times. A green blip appears on your radar and you become hopeful. Maybe it's a settlement, a trader, anyone to make you feel less alone. But it's just a mole rat, and suddenly you feel more alone than ever.
** And then you'll probably end up killing your molerat buddy and eating its meat to regain health. Sad indeed.



* Even the cut content in the game is pretty freaky. In Fallout 3, there's a house in the town of Megaton called "My Megaton House" that you can turn into your own personal safehouse as part of a quest. That's not the creepy part: the creepy part is its younger cohort known as the "Abandoned House". It's an earlier, untextured version of My Megaton house only accessible via console commands. It has only two floors, with blank, featureless, dimly-lit walls, and only a single chair and bed. Being there certainly feels like it was abandoned not just by people, but by all of reality itself. If you linger for too long, the game crashes. [[http://fallout.wikia.com/wiki/File:FO3MegatonHouseDummy02.png This screenshot]] is especially creepy. Just that single, heavily-textured and filthy-looking bed in a dark and unearthly-looking room gives this troper the [[WebAnimation/HomestarRunner jibblies.]]

** To make things [[FromBadToWorse even worse,]] imagine that as the Lone Wanderer, you have (unknown to you) a severe allergy to shellfish. Then, imagine a Mirelurk attacking you and giving you a nice, clean snip on your bare arm and drawing blood. Anyone with a shellfish allergy can tell you that even cutting yourself on a piece of shell can provoke a reaction. A snip from this HUGE radiation filled crab could and likely would cause nothing short of [[BodyHorror extreme swelling of the injured area, ]](not to mention your lips and tongue), restriction of your airway and an altogether horrible crawling sensation as histamines work their way frantically through your bloodstream.
*** To make it worse:
----> Moira (Literal translation): I want you to go into a Mirelurk's lair where hundreds of them are dwelling, dodge all of them all the way into the lowest level, put a camera in one of the eggpods, then leave and dodge your way back up to the exit without attacking any of them.

** Even that tiny detail has been made disturbing: instead of telling the proper time, the watch your virtual self is wearing is permanently frozen. Just like the ones at [[http://www.bilkent.edu.tr/~wigley/HiroshimaWatch.jpg Hiroshima and Nagasaki]].

** Wanna make them worse? Well, glitches can do this to you. Running in downtown D.C., followed by an ''army'' of Super Mutants, rush into one of the Pulowski Preservation Shelters, which normally keeps enemies out. After a few seconds, ''a horrible mass of crawling meat can appear in the shelter with you, like it felt from the roof''. Apparently, Centaurs can enter in these shelters like they are made of air. Suddenly the shelters don't seem so safe.

* The hallucination in the sacred bog. They're even more freakish than the entire sum of all of EternalDarkness hallucinations.

* Room 1K at the Homestead Hotel certainly qualifies. A room filled with bloody carnage. The bodies have all rotted down to skeletons, but its pretty easy to imagine what the room looked like when the bodies were still fresh. Whats worse is the mask you find in the bathroom, implying that this was the work of the pint-sized slasher; The fact that the room was never cleaned up implies that the slasher did all this after the bombs fell, that he/she was never caught. It's quite possible that we'll find more of the Slasher's handiwork in Fallout 4...

* In Meresti Station, where the [[spoiler: vampires]] are, a head suddenly falls from the ceiling. It clanks, meaning it's probably metal, but it looks realistic enough for the moment. It's the same type of years that appears in one of the baby carriage traps found in the D.C. Ruins behind a chain fence.

* Just leaving Vault 101 could be frightening enough. Nothing will attack the Vault dweller along the way, but the players don't know that.

*** Some sort of glitch sometimes makes super mutants and centaurs spawn right on top of you when you're swimming near Rivet City, and they can swim too. You can't escape no matter where you go.
