In Fallout 3, before it's release, they went on about how you have to survive the harsh wasteland by scrounging up what you can find, and by the time I beat the game, I had about 300-500 stimpaks, and then enough ammo of each type to outfit an entire military platoon. XD
Well, it was pretty much the same in the original Fallouts. Maybe the second one more than the first, but still. I wish someone made a mod for Fallout to make it a survival game of sorts.
