My favorite moments from Fallout 3 came out of a collaboration between the creative output of the deers and my own imagination. The game set up situations in which moral decision was entirely in the hands of the player: help the slavers or fight them, save the villagers or exploit them, the good of the many or the good of you. In one quest I recovered a pristine, powerful rifle that belonged to Abraham Lincoln. I freed the slaves and literally blew the head off the slaver bastards. Having added a nifty Reputation system into this game, the consequences of those decisions now vary across the wasteland.

Some will love you, while others will hate you for what you do, as is the way in the real world, where the moral landscape is a jumbled mass of prejudices, preferences, and pretensions. However, there are a few exceptional set-ups where morality is much less clear, and the ones that fascinated me the most were a pair of quests centered around sex slavery and prostitution.

By way of disclosure, I think prostiution should be legal and have lived in countries where it is and known sex workers who choose to do it, make a good living doing it and benefit from the protections that legalization offers. However, I also recognize that prostitution often has very negative impacts on sex workers and clients alike and that sex slavery and forced prostitution are very real and very serious crimes.

I think Fallout: New Vegas knows all these things too. Only the last offers much of a challenge for recruiting, since you have to get someone to re-program a regular robot for you. The key element to this quest is that the people hiring you make a point of saying that all their sex workers are free agents who can come and go, working or not as they please. Even the robot.

The second story is much darker. It takes place in the hedonistic Gomorrah Casino, which has scantily clad hookers out front, beckoning gamblers inside. But front and center, literally when you walk into the courtyard, is Joana, a sultry sex worker who offers to show you a good time. Go along up to her room, and she acts the part all the way. But talk to Joana, treat her like a person, and the truth comes out. She and the other men and women here Gomorrah caters to all tastes are slaves. And so the quest unfolds: find the boyfriend, sneak the enslaved Joana out of the casino along with a couple of her fellow sex slaves, and confront their captors in a back alley.

There can be as there was for me a happy ending. Not that kind. For that I went back to my favorite sex-partner, Fisto the Robot.

So Fallout: New Vegas gives us a sex comedy and a dark psychodrama, both centered around prostitution. Moreover, there are no particularly hard choices here.

Any real, moral judgement has to come from you, the player. For me, this pair of quests reminded me of my delight with Fallout 3. Here I got to take a stand for my beliefs on both sides of this divisive issue: pro-sex workers who choose their own profession and vehemently anti-sex slavery and forced prostitution. They leave it up to us to wonder and think about what meaning, if any, these quests might have. But together they took me on a little journey and managed to provoke some thinking, some re-thinking, and even a little guilt in me about my actions in the game.

This kind of provocation is fruitful territory for any game, and in this respect, more than most games I play, Fallout: New Vegas is no wasteland.
