There are also loads of guns
Mostly you get to choose between guns that shoot bullets and guns that shoot lasers or plasma. I like the former, because I tend to stick with what I know. Still, the latter can reduce a foe to glowing green goop, so it's all good. Despite the game's first-person perspective, you won't get far if you treat this like a typical FPS. This is an RPG, and raw stats play a crucial role in determining your effectiveness with a given weapon. The V.A.T.S. system allows players to pause time, target specific body parts (usually the head), and then watch as your character fires off devastatingly accurate shots.
