Although not developed by Bethesda, one of my funniest moments playing an RPG in recent memory was New Vegas. My playstyle is normally straight ahead using brute force. I loaded up New Vegas for the very first time and began talking to a few people in Goodsprings. They informed me the best course of action in attempting to find the man to tried to kill me was going south to Primm. I knew this was the road the game wanted me to take, but I needed to see New Vegas right away. I headed north from Goodsprings and found my way through a small valley. In the distance, I saw something blinking orange. As I got closer, I saw what appeared to be a flying bug of some kind. I thought to myself, “How cute. A little fly. No problem.” I pull out my Varmint Rifle with every intention of quickly sending this insect to the ground. Looking down the barrel, I begin to pump lead into seemingly helpless creature. Three shots! Four shots! Five shots!
A few seconds later, I crumble into a heap below the uninjured Cazador. After reloading, my puny weapon and freshly created character started in a southerly direction towards Primm.
