** A lot of the Dunwich horror ([[ShoutOut heh]]) is nice and subtle. Bodies disappearing when you backtrack. Turning around to see that the doors behind you have shut. Too bad if you're concentrating on stalking the ghouls, you can completely miss the scares.

** A lot of the Dunwich horror ([[ShoutOut heh]]) is nice and subtle. Bodies disappearing when you backtrack. Turning around to see that the doors behind you have shut. A door suddenly flinging open right in front of you. Too bad if you're concentrating on stalking the ghouls, you can completely miss the scares.



*** [[FromBadToWorse It gets even better!]] If you're astute, you'll notice that when you [[spoiler: kill everyone, Timmy is missing.]] Wonder what [[spoiler: happened to him?]] Check the front of the Neusbaum house; there's a garden gnome there that wasn't before. When you look at it, [[spoiler: [[AndIMustScream it's name is Timmy.]]]]

**** Then you realize that in comparison to what exists today, even decades after the Cold War, and relative peace, that the bombs dropped on Japan were basically party favors. While the radiation is greatly exaggerated in the Fallout universe, the damage is grossly understated.

*If you press Carol, an Underworld ghoul, you can ask her what it was like the day the bombs dropped. Her family was running to their house cellar and her father went back out to help some people in when the bomb dropped. Carol recalls seeing her father vaporized, and only his shadow left. Shadows on walls and prints in shoes were all that were left of some Japanese citizens after the bombs were dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

*** Made [[FridgeHorror substantially worse]] by a few facts; unlike the audio diaries [[NothingIsScarier these don't have any sort of voice-over]] so we don't know who or what is talking.

*** Made [[FridgeHorror substantially worse]] by a few facts; first, unlike the audio diaries [[NothingIsScarier these don't have any sort of voice-over]] so we don't know who or what is talking. Second, it's dated 2074; ''three years before the bombs dropped and the world went to hell''.

* There's a place in Marigold station containing a skeleton with a pistol lying next to it. Thanks to the somewhat "overenthusiastic" physics engine, picking up the pistol can cause the skeleton to spasm violently, making it look like it's about to leap up and attack you. For reference, this is in a dark, abandoned subway with creepy music.

*** 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.
