he's a freak!
-Me, every game but that one.
You know, they're schemers. Schemers trying to control their worlds. I try to show the schemers how pathetic their attempts to control things really are.
It's the schemers that put us where we are. House was a schemer, he had plans, and uh, look where that got him. I just did what I do best. I took his little plan and I turned it on itself.
If men were angels then there would be no need for government. If men were governed by angels there would be no need to limit government's power.
Unfortunately, men are men and governed by men. House is a man, with all a man's faults.
You're taking everything he says at face value - assuming that he's a) telling the truth and b) not deluded.
*I* never considered him 'evil'. Merely yet another technocrat that has a plan to usher in a utopia. These people tend to not *care* about the human cost of implementing their 'perfect plans'. Millions die and the 'Top Man' complains that he needs a new People.
So, no - I don't trust him to have complete control of even a single city-state (New vegas) let alone a nation the size of the NCR.
Don't get me wrong - I don't *trust* the NCR either. But at least they have some control of their government and its depradations are limited to the merely human scale.
I always prefer to go Wildcard - where New Vegas stays as an indepentent city-state, the Legion is pushed out into Arizona, and the NCR in CA is secure but always has to compete with New Vegas for its citizens - ie, if the NCR gets too oppressive, those people can always move to NV, acting as a balance to the NCR's tendency to 'join or die'.
That said, I trust him about as far as I can throw him. He's an ancient being kept alive by unnatural means, with a giant tower and an army of robots. His entire questline involves making his robot army larger and more powerful, and expanding his power to the entire region and everyone in it. he is one evil laugh away from being categorized as a supervillain.
I would have followed mister house otherwise, I hate the idea of american democracy and the brotherhood.
No matter how corrupt politics are or who started wars or how good ceasars intentions are.
Slavery is literary worst thing that ever happened to humanity. Many would consider (including me) daily humiliation, work without reward, life without any happiness worse than death.
Im not emotional person at all, but slavery is some sick ♥♥♥♥. Thats why nobody should help legion and justify it.
Other than that i helped legion too for RP purposes. But never tried to justify it :-x
Oh yes, absolutely. Rule number one of RP is that you do what you character would do, not what you would do. Failing to make that distinction is what has contributed to countless Mary Sues in all RPG system since the genre's inception.
The Enclave wants to wipe out all life on Earth, and has tried to do so twice with the use of FEV. I'm pretty sure the NCR isn't down with that sort of thing.
Now you argue that they are better than NCR and Ceaser. Considering this game IS about what you consider the lesser of 4 evils I will buy that. NCR basicly want to "Rule". They want flags in the ground claiming ownership and they want people to follow their roles in a VERY vain attempt to revive america, when its clearly a losing battle and way too soon to do so. Ceaser is faring much better as the Legion better adapts to the wasteland. however it means a rougher life for everyone involved as people are just as likely to be turned into slaves or forced into military service. Whatever YOU want to do to the Mojave is up to YOU so you cant pick that apart.
Please do correct me if I am wrong:)
The Great Khans are "assimilated" in the same way that the other tribes were in that they had their identities removed and were reindocrtinated into the Legion mentality, ie slavery. The Fiends are simply wiped out. If the Kings are hostile to the NCR in Freeside they are given the "choice" to be assimilated like the Khans, but they refuse and are killed to the last man. Caesar isn't down with any vice whatsoever, so you can assume that the Vegas faction is wiped out or enslaved to the last; he isn't going to let gambling and drinking go on in his new capital. So, yeah, life in Legion Vegas ends up being pretty awful for just about everybody except for Caesar.
In short, residents of Legion territories aren't really citizens and they aren't slaves, but they're also not free. People who keep their mouths shut, go about their business, and nod at the rare requests the Legion makes of them -- they can live very well. Many of them don't care at all that they don't have a say in what happens around them (mostly because they felt they never had a say in it before the Legion came, anyway)"
That's from the wiki, sounds familiar I may have haerd it at somepoint in the game. Maybe Vegas istelf had a harsh time if Ceaser succeeds but I don't think the rest would.
This is really making me want to play this game now, and I will!:D
