Fallout 2 (1998)

Roughly the point where I lost interest in the game. You wouldn't believe how drab and sloggy and time-consuming and monotonous this stretch of map is.

When I was about 15, a friend of mine strongly encouraged me to play this. It's too bad, because I probably would have liked it if I'd played it back then. Now a complicated RPG feels like doing chores, and what teenage me would have thought was dark and edgy seems bland and brownish-grey.
