Under the tearjerker section where they discuss vault 81, they claim that all the non-control vaults had a "choice" in whether or not to perform their horrific experiments.
I'd just like to point out that the only reason that lone scientist was able to prevent the experiment was because the vast majority of the science team and their administrators never made it to the vault before the nukes hit, and the only way he was able to pull it off was by sabotaging the equipment and trapping his colleagues/friends in a sealed chamber to die.
The scientists in the other vault's were likely never given such a chance.
The “Recycled Script” section seems to be stretching it. The Point Lookout and Far Harbor’s stories don’t have many similarities beyond very, very broad generalizations.
Some of the points made in the trope listing aren’t even factually correct: Far Harbor is mostly woodland, not swamp, the hostiles in Far Harbor are pirates, not mutant tribals, and there’s actual civilization in Far Harbor, not just a tiny outpost.
Given as how this trope REALLY seems to be stretching it, and is YMMV at best, I’m removing it unless further discussion yields an agreement to keep it.
Adding the Obligatory Awesome Page. 'Nuff said.

How well does it match the trope?
