I feel like there are two types of people who play Fallout, and that is the kind that does all the drugs, and those who refuse to do them at all. The problem with that is that they make your character WAY stronger. 25% Damage boost is frankly a little too much. And the only real downside is that you can have some withdraws, but then, there’s a perk for that.
All of this to say that when my friend plays the game he refuses to partake in the sauce of the wasteland, and I tell him to hit that shit, and hit it hard. It’s a really weird dynamic, because in real life I don’t do any of that stuff. But that’s the point of playing a game isn’t it? To do or be something that you never could in real life.
