I wish I could like this multiple times. Everyone always talks about lonesome road and old world blues, which are good. But this is one of the greatest dlcs ever made. It completely changes the game. Whether you enter at the minimum or maximum level it turns fallout into a survival horror game for 7-10 hours. Not to mention that the story and the environment are so well done. Incredible dlc and a big part of why new Vegas is one of my favorite games of all time.
@DerangedRabbit, I loved it more than the others if I'm honest, I absolutely loved it's message about having to let go
@DerangedRabbit, the only dlc I like more is old world blues and that’s only because of the humor and the callback to big mt. Dead money has possibly the best atmosphere of any dlc and of most games I’ve ever seen
@DerangedRabbit, the point where it hit home for me how hard dead money was going to be: i was in between zones of the red clouds at 2HP with no stimpaks or food and only a toilet in the room i was in. I then proceeded to drink toilet water for 5 minutes to get my HP back up to half
@SirMajorGeneralTim, I think everyone had a newfound respect for toilets after dead money
@DerangedRabbit, Agreed. I loved the dlc, and I feel that New Vegas was probably the best Fallout made, minus the glitches.
@DerangedRabbit, words do not do justice to Dead Money, its gameplay and its story.
Story time, when I first played Sierra Madre I somehow passed over the holotape that would have let me craft stimpacks. So I played throughout the entire DLC without stimpacks, surving solely off of the scraps I can find. To this day I remember it was one of my most difficult gaming experiences, and it will always hold a special place in my heart
Too relatable. Dead Money was hard and scary and I loved every moment of it.
@Blaiseingfire, to me it's the scariest dlc to any game I've played
@Blaiseingfire, in the beginning it felt unplayable with all the bugs with the companions but I came back to it and even figured out how to make nice with Dean and had a blast. but yeah not easy dlc, old world blues still stands as my favorite though
To this day, I still consider the ghost people to be one of the scariest creatures in the Fallout universe, as well as among the scariest creatures in any game. I never felt prepared when I encountered one, and it wasn't helped by the fact that they're usually lurking in places where you can barely breathe or see.
@Marida Cruz, not to mention they way they act and work, jumping and moving around in an unpredictable manner. Primitive and unnerving. Smart enough to use terrain to their advantage as well as the ability to make weapons and set traps. The Ghost People are terrifying, and I dread the Sierra Madre every time I replay the game
@Marida Cruz, well it didnt help that their perception of 0 was bugged to give them infinite perception so the'yd track you regardless of atealth level. Funny enough a bug added to a survival horror element of relentless predators shuffling around constantly in the sierra madre.
I have dealt out upvotes to everyone, as I usually do when I arrive on a Fallout pic. Have a happy day everyone!
@The Puppet Man, hell yeah dude
@The Puppet Man, Same, you all get upvotes
Did anyone else else go back and choose NOT to get the perk from Dog where they stay down? That kinda pissed me off that you could just turn off a big challenge and cool mechanic of the ghost people pretty early on.
@GayShjtSniper, true, but you could keep them down permanently anyway by targeting a limb and taking it off
@Cloverleaf, Right, that's what I liked about it. But then you get the perk from Dog and then they die just like any other enemy. They don't get back up even if you don't dismember or disintegrate them. And I didn't like that you could just get rid of that feature, that removes a lot of the power/eeriness of the ghost people.
Yes, but every single piece of loot, and gold bars was worth it.
Dead Money was hard as hell, but I loved it! Course, now i have an irrational fear of casinos but whatever
not scared of getting your head blown up?
I am the odd man out in that I like honest hearts, so I too know the pain of liking an unpopular dlc
