One of the beauties of Fallout 3 is that you can walk for hours and hours, doing various different or good (or evil) deeds, and still manage to stumble on an encampment or place that you had never seen to that point.
|Okay, I admit... I probably should've seen that... I may have been high on jet at the time.|
Then one day, as I wandered semi-aimlessly through the wasteland, I suddenly stumbled what looked like an old shopping complex, but the place was impenetrable except for one opening, with a billboard semi-cheerfully welcoming me to "Paradise Falls".
|Best deals anywhere! Also... slaves!|
Obviously, I shot him dead on the spot.
I then went through the town, shooting guards, freeing slaves. The whole thing felt like the world's most empowering action sequence. Hiding behind buildings to calmly reload, before bursting from around a corner to unleash more wrath on the slaver haven's inhabitants. It was like a mix of that one scene in Revolver where the hit man just wordlessly destroys all the people and the famous lobby scene from The Matrix.
I finally made my way to head slaver Eulogy Jones' office and burst in. The game obviously sets everyone in town to go 'hostile' the instant you start some shit, but I could have sworn that for an instant, Eulogy froze, as if he was shocked by the one man army that had cut through his life's evil work.
Then I shot him.
Goodbye, Paradise Falls. I look forward to not hearing of your exploits on my radio anymore.
