No Mutants Allowed Forums - The release of the Fallout 3 teaser earlier this week softened the hearts of most Fallout fanboys who (like me) were slightly worried by Bethesda's track record of creating large worlds with lots off carefully placed items that combined to make slightly interactive museums instead of fun and immersive games with character. The impressively atmospheric teaser wasn't enough, however, to satisfy the most obsessive and change-fearing goblins to ever amass in one dark corner of the internet: the No Mutants Allowed forumgoers.

It's okay to be skeptical, but NMA takes it to a whole new level. Most of their comments ignored the ambiance of the Fallout 3 trailer and the fact that it was rendered in the actual game engine with real art assets, focusing instead (with a gleeful viciousness) on the only thing they could possibly criticize: a suit of power armor that was slightly different than it was in the first game.

Every miniscule detail of the suit itself was discussed off and on over the course of the next 23 pages, which also included a thoughtful debate as to whether Bethesda is evil or retarded. You can guess what the rest of the site is like.
