This is all so true. And even when I'm not playing games that do this, I'll still get all nervous. Like, in Harvest Moon, there will be an open space in the mines and I'm all like, "Hmm...proceed with caution..."
Fallout: Beginning Vs. End (i only have Fallout 3 and New Vegas, i don't have Fallout 4 yet, but I've heard talk that you get pretty decent armor and weapons right at the beginning... Anyone wish to clarify this?)
