See also ''VideoGame/FalloutVanBuren'', Black Isle's original, very different ''Fallout 3'' that was cancelled due to financial difficulties, but is still used as [[BroadStrokes reference material]] by Bethesda.

*** Fawkes gets to Lampshade this a bit in one of his remarks, noting how even as a Supermutant he doesn't get attacked on sight simply by virtue of people trusting you.

** Also, the [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Enclave Eyebots]].

The third numbered, fifth released and fourth in the timeline (thanks to ''VideoGame/FalloutBrotherhoodOfSteel'' being declared non-canon) game in the popular ''VideoGame/Fallout'' series, released in 2008. It was developed by [[Creator/Bethesda Bethesda Studios]], who purchased the rights to the franchise after Creator/InterplayEntertainment's bankruptcy, and is set in [[UsefulNotes/WashingtonDC the D.C. area]] rather than the West Coast. It incorporates FPS elements into the RPG structure for the first time in the main series and, in contrast to the [[VideoGame/Fallout1 first]] [[VideoGame/Fallout2 two]] games and the later ''[[VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas New Vegas]]'', is more of a dungeon crawler through the rubble of the capital rather than focusing on questing between towns.

It's 2277, and [[RunningGag Vault 101 is an okay place to live]]. It's an underground paradise that saved humanity from [[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt the War]] two centuries ago, and has been home to everyone within it for generations. Your life is okay, too. Your father is the head doctor and an all-around NiceGuy, and your mother... [[MissingMom well, she was probably nice too.]] You grew up more or less normally, despite the antics of resident bully [[GreaserDelinquents Butch [=DeLoria=]]], leader of [[GangOfBullies The Tunnel Snakes]] and an all-around {{Jerkass}}. Your best friend [[GirlNextDoor Amata]] is a nice girl, even though her father, the Overseer, is [[PapaWolf a bit obsessive.]] Yes, things are fine in Vault 101, and there's no reason they wouldn't be, since the [[CrapsackWorld Wasteland]] is far behind the thick Vault door... if it even ''exists.'' Nobody knows for sure, because in Vault 101, [[ClosedCircle no one ever enters, and no one ever leaves.]] Indeed, all things considered, Vault 101 is an okay place to live, [[TemptingFate and nothing]] [[BlatantLies will ever change that.]]

** Mysterious Stranger: He'll occasionally show up in VATS to provide a OneHitKill to any enemy, but he can glitch up, anything he kills doesn't provide you perk or quest-related benefits, and he has a low chance of appearing at all.
** Besides, his chances of appearing are totally random and don't take the threat level in consideration. Which means he's just as likely to appear and OneHitKill that full-health [[KingMook Super Mutant]] [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Behemoth]] you just engaged in VATS, as he is to casually waltz in and blow to shreds a half-dead [[GoddamnedBats Molerat]] you were too lazy to manually snipe yourself.

** There is a mission to help a strange woman make a handy survival guide. If you risk life and limb to make a very informative book and tell her honestly about your results, you will make a better book and get a bunch of extra rewards, the least of which being people giving you free stuff in gratitude for helping save their lives.
** In the Oasis quest, accelerating Harold's growth, slowing it, or peacefully putting him out of his misery will earn you various rewards. {{Mercy kill}}ing him [[KillItWithFire with fire]], however, will turn the Treeminders hostile and fail the quest, thus no rewards for you.

* BagOfSpilling: ''Operation Anchorage'' and ''The Pitt'' begin with the player temporarily losing everything in their inventory, the former because the quest takes place in a computer simulation and you can't really take anything from the real world with you, the latter because it's taken from you by raiders.
