The second time I played through Fallout, I wanted to be evil. It was different, and it let me pick up Jericho as a follower from the get-go.
Unfortunately, this turned out to be harder than I thought. There is one simple way to get pretty evil pretty quickly – blow up Megaton. I just couldn’t bring myself to do it, though. Got kindda attached to the residents after living there for one play-through. I wouldn’t feel right blowing up Moira’s little shop.
I did kill Moriarty, tho. That felt good.
Without that giant push into evil territory, it was hard to stay evil. I did a lot of stealing and I killed Moriarty, which put me just inside Evil. That let me pick up Jericho, but over the next few hours of play time I drifted back towards Neutral.
Then I got back to Tenpenny Tower. The first time around, I was nice and I persuaded the residents to let the Ghouls live there. No such luck this time.
I unlocked the entrance to the tunnels and the feral ghouls came streaming out. I followed them inside, put on the Ghoul mask, and started massacring the residents of Tenpenny Tower. They were all a bunch of snooty punks anyway, so it didn’t seem so bad to kill them all.
But it certainly made me Very Evil.
So if you’re lookin to sink your karma rating, head over there. Let the ghouls in, and enjoy the slaughter.
