I went there and lobbed grenades out the ying yang,because I was getting pissed about being called a mungo all the time.But NOBODY died!!! HuangLee 23:06, 8 June 2009 (UTC)

I mean seriously. I can kill all the dogs in Little Lamplight, but I can't kill the kids? Those Lamplight dogs should be invincible too. V.A.T.S. addict 23:10, 8 June 2009 (UTC)

well you can kinda kill kids, just get sandman perk and find a sleeping kid and select murder it dosent work but you still get xp VICTORY!!!.... rifle 23:15, 8 June 2009 (UTC)

That sounds cool. I can't kill the kids so I'm like "NO PETS FOR YOU!!!" V.A.T.S. addict 23:19, 8 June 2009 (UTC)

maybe not all the kids in little lamplight, but i sure would like to light a fire under James Hargraves ass, that little punk! BraddaJ 23:22, 8 June 2009 (UTC)

Just mezz him and watch security chase him around for ages. Fat Man Spoon 23:25, 8 June 2009 (UTC)

The real reason why the game is rated MA is because it gives kids the unrealistic message that they can talk shit to hardcases and survive. *engraves "To: Little Lamplight From: Mungo" on Mini-Nuke* V.A.T.S. addict 23:35, 8 June 2009 (UTC)

Agreed, if I child talks like that to me, I'm not sure if I'd hit them with a belt or put slug in their brain. Seriously I've killed mutants as big as a building and insects the size of buses, why should I take bull from those snobby little brats.Grendel 6.5 04:06, 9 June 2009 (UTC)

You kill several kids if you opt to blow up the bomb in Megaton, but you still don't get the satisfaction of doing it face-to-face :/ -- 05:58, 14 June 2009 (UTC)

... Erm, It's about game critisism guys, you make a game were children can be slaughtered and it will be pulled off the shelves in a couple of countries. Remember Postal 2? You could piss on people, cut their heads off, kick it around like a soccer ball and play catch with your dog with it. I hardly think that people would appreaciate(?) a game were you could kill kids. Hope You've adjusted, I'm Gabriel 11:42, 14 June 2009 (UTC)

Yeah but kids telling me to Go Fuck Myself is all good. And the message that it's okay to blast the face off of an irradiated mutant? That's sending the message that it's okay to abuse deformed adults. Now, an invincible aggressive mutated kid? Bethesda definitely dropped the ball not including a few of those in the game. V.A.T.S. addict 12:12, 14 June 2009 (UTC)
Look I had no active interest in killing kids but in FO3 most of them are begging for it.V.A.T.S. addict 12:05, 14 June 2009 (UTC)
Finally, as an inbred and retarded hillbilly I don't think it's right that Bethesda is condoning killing/abusing/stacking the body parts of said country folk in Point Lookout. Make them invincible shit talkers too. V.A.T.S. addict 12:12, 14 June 2009 (UTC)
You can kill kids in Fallout and Fallout 2 and they're still being sold. Ausir 11:57, 14 June 2009 (UTC)

WTF is up with that Pacman movie trailer? Totally irrelevant. V.A.T.S. addict 12:15, 14 June 2009 (UTC)

Why can't they be killed anyway? I don't see why not. All i want to do is kill Mayor MacCready. I hate him. Tezzla CannonUser Tezzla Dog 18:21, September 20, 2010 (UTC)

A little off-topic, but a thread like this on the official Bethesda forums would get locked up in like half a second. I'm glad that here we can actually discuss the issue without a kneejerk reaction from moderators. --Kris User Hola 18:34, September 20, 2010 (UTC)

Not a problem for PC gamers. Console, set RJ McFuckhead as an adult (Princess too) and have them killed. Nobody even got hostile :D 19:55, September 20, 2010 (UTC) 85.82.. whatever.

I want to shove a flamethrower up MacCreedy's ass and watch him scream and wiggle...........little bastard made me do an stupid-long-side-quest to rescue some brats from Paradise Falls[not to mention said stupid little brats bitching when their collective adult boy-friend/pedo-dady got killed on the way out] with me being a slaver no less my self.............

Why can't they be killed anyway? I don't see why not. Tezzla CannonUser Tezzla Dog 18:42, September 21, 2010 (UTC)

Because of overprotective people, whom are assured that we will go kill children in real life, if we do it in a game... Huzzah for censorship! PiCaSsO 19:40, September 21, 2010 (UTC) Well I've played Spider man games and that doesn't mean i dress in skintight spantex and try to climb walls.JASPER//"Do you like hurting other people?"UserRichard 19:42, September 21, 2010 (UTC)

"All gamers are phsycopaths" may not be a terribly rational point of view from our perspective, but it's one that the news media pays careful attention to, and the developers have to take that into account. 23:40, September 21, 2010 (UTC)

OFF TOPIC At least we can play Fallout 3. I heard that M games are almost completely banned in Australia.

ON TOPIC I need a child killing mod, they must die. Also, I Fallout 3 we can NUKE A CITY. To think we can't kill children, whew glad these assholes stop us.

We kill baby seals and we don't see anything wrong with that, but when it's a human child, it's so horrible! It's comparable to killing a baby goldfish! Nukey (talk) 21:25, September 26, 2010 (UTC)

Also, you can kill kids in Fallout 3 without mods (in a way): When you destroy Megaton, you kill Harden Simms and Maggie. Nukey (talk) 22:34, September 26, 2010 (UTC)

I don't really know how the U.S. game rating system works, but down under we don't have an "R" (restricted) rating. So if games are too fucked up, they're illegal to buy down here. Fallout 3 almost was banned, but Beth made some changes (like renaming morphine "Med-X" and removing the injection animation) and they gave it an "M.A." rating. Telos 07:53, October 3, 2010 (UTC)

People who hate fun and now have moved on from saying books, film, television and music are the work of the devil and now are out for video games would call it a "child killing simulator" and lots of shops would pull it off the shelves because they think people can't understand right and wrong or reality and fantasy. --Knight Captain Kerr 22:17, October 1, 2010 (UTC)

Yeah, you should be able to kill any living thing in the wasteland. You can trade Bumble off to slavers, but why can't you shoot/slash/annihilate them as well? MFToast - talk 03:05, October 4, 2010 (UTC)

Well if the game gave us the choice to kill kids im sure most people would be deeply offended by seeing a little girl getting her arms blow off by a 44. mag. If they took away fallouts graphic gore there may be a chance.--Radraider 03:37, October 4, 2010 (UTC)

About the previous statement, I don't think people Could be offended. Unless they Accidentally blast the girl with a rocket...

Why are humans so egocentric? I mean there are KIDS who bake still alive kittens in real life, but we can't finish them off in computer? Also we, humans, kill animal children and other people's children in reality but in game Oh NO! It's so stupid!Ketija998 08:03, October 10, 2010 (UTC)

I think murder is generally frowned upon in real life. Hal10k 01:52, October 11, 2010 (UTC)

I don't see murder as frowned apon, I hate them little bastards at little lamplight I would chop them into teeny-weeny pieces with stabhappy. and then mount mayor McDickweed's head in my living room YAY!!! such happy thoughts Deathclawpoop 22:32, October 11, 2010 (UTC)

I share your sentiments, I was merely pointing out that Kejita was making it sound like the game was preventing you from doing something that everybody does anyway. Hal10k 23:09, October 11, 2010 (UTC)

Elimination of the killing of children is pointless and diminishing. It is eliminating artistic qualities of a brilliant game! and I find it at some points to be more cruel to the children to NOT kill them, such as at Dave's Republic, after killing all the adults the children are just left to starve to death. That's worse than taking a bullet to the brain! Sombar1 22:37, October 11, 2010 (UTC)

yaw, are all cool so you can all join our raiders group we have a page in off-topic forums. Deathclawpoop 23:36, October 11, 2010 (UTC)

I'm not saying that it prevents anyone from anything. I'm saying that there's no point in banning something that happens in real life anyway. And kids are evil. In game and reality.Ketija998 09:30, October 13, 2010 (UTC)

Why are human children treated better than animals, I mean come on humans need to be killed because of overpopulation anyway. and animals don't bitch as much either Deathclawpoop 12:11, October 13, 2010 (UTC)

What are you, Deathclawpoop, some kind of PeTA or HSUS supporter? That attitude is sickening, to ever think that a human being could be valued less than a mere animal. --Kris User Hola 12:18, October 13, 2010 (UTC)

Human is an animal, Kris. We just don't have as much fur, but that doesn't make us any more better. As for the brain, if we wouldn't be so smart, the world would be in much better stage than it is now.Ketija998 12:35, October 13, 2010 (UTC)

Be that as it may, to value a nonhuman life above that of a human is wrong. --Kris User Hola 12:40, October 13, 2010 (UTC)

Who can tell what's wrong and what's right? Everyone has their own rights and wrongs.Ketija998 12:50, October 13, 2010 (UTC)

Can we agree that hypocrisy is wrong? Both PeTA and HSUS are hypocritical to the core. They claim to care about animals but their actions contradict that claim. In reality they hate humans and want to see us gone from the face of the earth. --Kris User Hola 12:58, October 13, 2010 (UTC)

Have you met anyone from PeTA and HSUS? Not like I have, but I don't think they go around killing people. Btw earth without humans would be an interesting place.Ketija998 13:07, October 13, 2010 (UTC)

For me, not being able to kill kids really detracts from the realism. Yes, I would kill kids, and I would enjoy doing it. That's while playing a maniacal bloodthirsty character, though (I have always played the Fallout games with many different types of characters, as I'm sure many of us do), who just wants the bodycount to go up as high as it can. Most of the other characters I'd play would never do that, even evil cunning characters, assuming they'd put in penalties like in the first two games. Can't developers see that for most of us, WE ARE NOT THE CHARACTERS WE PLAY. Do they really think we're that stupid to embrace our player characters so completely that after a 12 hour Fallout session I'm going to go next door and murder Billy the neighbour's kid? I say keep realism alive. Let there be as many play options as possible, and have the game universe respond accordingly.

Here's some serious B.S. I saw once in my FO3 game. A Bear (yow gwai; I can't spell it) came into Canteberry Commmons and killed everyone, even their sentry bot was smote. I was evil so I just stood their an watched. I also had the Animal French perk so it couldn't hurt me. Anyway, everyone died accept the stupid kid. Screw the whole censorship thing. That's not legislating against the player killing children, not even the NPC bears can do it, that is just ass. Sorry, but if a bear attacks a child and kills it that's not wanton violence, that's nature. Bears eat babies, and well they should. If I was stupid enough to have baby they could eat mine :)

...To make the children indestructible is not only detracts from game play, but it makes the whole FO3 universe seem cheep. African warlords use children as soldiers in real life, that's real and that sucks! But killing little self important white kids in a video game, that shit's just funny! And, even if I can't do it because some ratings board is a bunch of pussies, why can't the fucking bear do it. I mean come one, its a bear, I didn't kill the kid the bear did it, seriously. Anyway, its about the only lame thing in the game, otherwise I'm about the most obsessed player you'll find. Not putting my screen name, and not leaving my e-mail. Haters can go to hell!
