I have this OCD thing I do when I’m fighting a lot of the same foe over and over again. I collect their armor, and combine them to repair them to 100% condition. Like a lot of obsessive behavior in this game, it’s stupid and worthless and I can’t stop doing it. I do enjoy it, for whatever reason. My biggest collection was when I wiped out the fiends and wound up with 39 mint condition Raider Blastmaster Armor. Since each armor is made from several others, that’s quite a death toll.
I don’t really behave this way in other games. There’s something about the Morrowind / Oblivion / Fallout 3 / New Vegas series that reaches in and helps me to discover new neuroses, encouraging them and cultivating them until they bloom into full-fledged psychosis.
So what’s your obsessive behavior?

The Best of 2015
My picks for what was important, awesome, or worth talking about in 2015.
A horrible, railroading, stupid, contrived, and painfully ill-conceived roleplaying campaign. All in good fun.
