What makes Fallout S.P.E.C.I.A.L?
In fallout there is a system named 'SPECIAL''. This stands for your attributes. Strength, Perception, Endurance, Charisma, Intelligence, Agility and Luck. The 7 attributes represent the player's main abilities. They stay largely constant the same in the game, although the attributes can be buffed by drugs, like mentats and buffout. Skills can permanently raise the player's abilities.
The Vault Boy!
The Vault boy is the mascot of Vault-Tec. In the Pip-boy (see next colomn) the vault boy demonstrates all the character's statistics and attributes. Fun fact: Did you know that the Vault boy is based partly on Uncle Pennybags from the popular board game ''Monopoly''?.
The Pip-boy... man, i really love the pipboy. Both in game and the real-life replica's, Pip-boy stands for Personal Information Processor-Boy. It's a wrist computer, and appears in all the fallout main games. It can be used to manage inventory, battle management, player statistics and health, and even radio and can also be used to look at the map and use fast-travel. There are different pip-boy models in the games.
The V.A.T.S. is the Vault-tec assisted targeting system. a very unique system. V.A.T.S. is a stat-based combat system used since fallout 3, and after that used in New Vegas, 4, and 76. With V.A.T.S. you see the % chance you will hit a body part, based on which weapon you use, distance, skills etc. In my opinion it's a very a great addition to the combat system, but i do not use it all the time. I like a challenge!
