Fallout 3

Pros: Nigh-obsessive attention to personality, overarching themes, and player agency in games. Walking encyclopedia of obscure references. Can occasionally pass as a civilized human being, when sober.

Cons: Can get carried away with games-as-art wankery. Plays life with VERBOSE mode on. Wears a necklace of human teeth.

One thing you don't know about my game:
The most obscure reference I put in the game, the nearly impossible-to-find unique version of the Alien Blaster called "Firelance" - a reference to the Martian Firelances in the fake plot-text in the paragraph book for the original Wasteland.
