Nearly two months ago, Redditor NoohjXLVII wrote a post, thanking Bethesda for Fallout 4 because the game was instrumental in taking his mind off family tragedy.
“I have spent over 500 [hours] in this game,” NoohjXLVII wrote on the Fallout 4 Reddit (via Eurogamer). “Partly due to the fun gameplay, the new survival mode, and just the game in general. My dad passed away last year (age 56)… I didn’t take it well.”
As a means of coping, he made a bipedal sentry bot and named it after his father. “The name of the bot was GR-36, as his name was Greg.”
To make matters worse, this summer, just as NoohjXLVII finished the game, he got a call telling him that his 24-year-old brother was in intensive care. Sadly, his brother passed away.
“Thank you Bethesda for providing me with this wonderful game and distraction for everything I’m going through,” NoohjXLVII wrote.
Bethesda not only sent NoohjXLVII a care package, but added his brother to the game’s Nuka World DLC.
Meet Evan, NoohjXLVII’s brother, forever memorialized as an NPC on the outskirts of Nuka World.
“The words they use sound exactly like him, however he was also a pretty funny guy, full of puns,” NoohjXLVII wrote yesterday, thanking Bethesda and saying he would forever be in their debt.
“P.S.,” NoohjXLVII added. “Don’t feel guilty about taking his stuff! He insists you take it and in real life he would give you the shirt off of his back to help those in need.”
