I got frustrated with this game and set it on my shelf a few years ago. I finally popped it back in the XBox and started playing it again.
I hate how your weapons are constantly shitty and falling apart and need repairing and do absolutely no damage to anything you're shooting at. Oh, critical shotgun to the face of an enemy? Yeah well, that didn't kill him. You'll still need to shoot him four more times. And dodge his five friends with the heavy lasers. And then kill them too.
And if you're out in the wastelands, watch out for giant hairless bears that come out of nowhere to kill you with one swipe and you can't run from them and you can't shoot them because both of those do fuck all. And if not the bears, the stupid impossible to kill robots. Or maybe the other impossible to kill floating robots that shoot green rays that kill you in three shots. Or the heavily armored Enclave troops roaming around.
The entire game becomes an exercise in moving from point A to point B without coming across a single soul. Because if you die, you'll have to start from the last place you walked outside/inside from, regardless if you walked ten miles across the map and survived. You'll have to to do it all again.
