Nowhere is class struggle highlighted in Fallout more beautifully than in The Pitt, where a cabal of ruthless and privileged raiders rule over an entire population of slave laborers with an iron power fist. The Pitt was great DLC for several reasons, but the most prominent was the fact that it was a chilling look into just how savage the human heart can be given the right conditions. You couldn't help but think you were getting a glimpse into a time-honored tradition of human cruelty that has played itself out countless times over the course of real-life history.There was something about the dark yellow sky and ominous buildings towering overhead in Pittsburgh that lent itself greatly to the feeling of true Orwellian tyranny at work.
At its core, Fallout is a story of human nature, more specifically of the destructiveness of human nature. Nowhere does that story make itself clearer than in the context of oppression and revolution.
