Worth Reading: I Made Timmy Neusbaum Cry


Kudos to for an amazing feature last week. Fond of Fallout 3’s memorable Tranquility Lane questlines, writer Joe Donnelly decided to approach a therapist with the plotlines of well-known Vault 112 simulation.

Here’s the kicker. Donnelly didn’t just ask what it might have all meant to Bethesda Game Studios, but rather, he decided to share the plotlines as if it they were his actual dreams.

Describing Tranquility Lane, here’s Donnelly:

“For me, it’s the most chilling dream sequence of any video game, which is why I decided to have it analyzed. I had Christine, a holistic therapist and dream analysis specialist, believe that the Tranquility Lane segment was, in fact, a recurring dream of my own. I described the minutiae of the dream, before asking her professional opinion as to its possible meaning.”

Read the full feature at Now if someone could just help me explain why I keep losing teeth in my dreams.
