*** I disagree with both the analysis of the meaning of the message content and the judgment that making the sacrifice is evil. Applying utilitarian ethics, it would be evil ''not'' to make the sacrifice, as that would result in the deaths of everyone in the Vault, as opposed to the death of a single person.

** It gets worse. Far, far worse. Cazadores are mutant tarantula hawk wasps, which reproduce is a manner that almost certainly had something to do with the eventual [[ChestBurster body horror]] of Alien. A female hawk wasp will paralyze a tarantula with its sting, then lay eggs inside its body. The crippled spider then slowly dies as it never fully recovers from the poison sting, and then the eggs hatch and the spider is eaten alive from the inside by wriggling larvae. These things have spread from big MT all across the Mojave, using living animals as hosts and sustenance for their young.

*** Not really, on many occasions you would see a freeside thug (which you can kill easily) or two chasing down a freeside citizen.

* Speaking of Ulysses, there's the man himself. Talking to him through ED-E reveals that he is very learned about the history of the Old World and knowledgeable about a lot of things in the Wasteland. He is cryptic as to his actual aims, but very cool and calm, and obviously has some well thought-out ultimate goal. When you finally meet him face to face, you find out that goal is [[spoiler:to use the remaining [=ICBMs=] in the divide to destroy your home. If your Courier has sided with either the [=NCR=] or the Legion, he's trying to destroy either his own former enemies or one of the more brutal and nasty factions in the Wasteland. But if your Courier is independent, he'll just aim the nukes at the Mojave.]] It's kind of terrifying to break through the veneer of a WarriorPoet and find an OmnicidalManiac willing to slaughter untold thousands of innocents and obliterate one of the few remaining bastions of human civilization just as a means to get back at the Courier and/or prove a philosophical point.

** Ulysses only makes their description even worse once they learned from him...you were killing the legacy of his tribe, a tribe that was destroyed by Caesar and became this horrific ghost of it's former self and out willing to kill for him. The fate of those assimilated under Caesar is brutal to say the least, even by it's most loyal members and how everything good and noble about the tribe is completely eradicated and instead is replaced by savagery and complete loyalty to the Legion, no ifs or buts.

* Related to the "First Bad End" above; [[spoiler: The player has the chance to turn the tables on Elijah and seal him in the vault. They can then listen in on his radio as [[VillainousBreakdown he goes from desperate pleading to furious threats]], before the vault starts to lose power, leaving him [[BuriedAlive trapped in the dark.]] Finally, his broadcast begins to loop on one last chilling line.]]

* In Sierra Madre casino, behind the stage, there are three skeletons. Two of them are adult sized. Between two of them, is a smaller, child sized. [[DrivenToSuicide Little bit further is a pistol...]]

** There's also a bunch of embalming fluid you can find there. It was no function and little worth. There's something ineffably creepy about it.

* Activating the greeting hologram in the casino is not advised if one had been playing for a long length of time. The eeriness of seeing one of the usually hostile Vera holograms being frozen on the stairs is enough to spook the player out...but then the music starts. A garbled recording of the haunting 'Begin Again', echoing through the room. Oh, and you can hear the Ghost People trying to break in after you. Sweet dreams.

* Christine's imprisonment prior to the Courier arriving in the Sierra Madre. Trapped in an auto-doc for weeks while the machine performed it's grisly task of operating on the poor girl while she was still awake. Mind you that there wasn't enough medication to keep her calm and ran out an hour into her claustrophobic nightmare of being trapped in a tube while metal instruments cut her up, in the dark for days or even weeks before finally being let out. And then when she gets to her part of the plan to get into the casino, the Courier can force her to crawl into a tiny room full of moving mechanical parts in the dark...

* The Courier him/herself; even if your karma meter is pointed at very good, you might have slaughted hundreds, if not thousands of people/animals, destroyed whole armies and flattened tribes at the near end of the game. It's no wonder why the Powder Gangers call you their "Grim-fucking-Reaper" after you save a town from their attack.
