Counter-Strike is a game of hair-trigger reflexes, twine-thin seconds that stretch like eons. Fallout’s VATS system actually is that. Time literally slows down, and you get to pick shots to maximize strategic potential and/or head-exploding-ness.

It’s a shame that VATS would actually make for a terrible multiplayer experience. Oh well. Perhaps it’s for the best. I know every other game series ever has multiplayer these days, but unless it’s a full-blown in-universe MMO, please, please, please don’t do it to Fallout. Signed your friend and mine, Nathan.
