Well he did shoot you in the face and then he acts all smarmy about it when you catch up with him. Then he tried to kill you again. I mean, if he at least apologized and explained that you were in the wrong place at the wrong time , gave you a couple hundred caps, and gave you the room then maybe he could be forgiven, but the bastard just keeps giving you more reasons to kill him.

Being voiced by Matthew Perry didn't help his chances either.

That fucking guy killed me at the start of New Vegas.
I swear I'll get my revenge if I happen to ever play the game for more than 20min.

You gotta admit the build-up to killing him is great, and there's so many avenues to take.

>Sneak up and shoot him in the back of the head like a mob movie
>Slip a fat mine under his barstool
>Hit him with poison throwing knife
>Knock him unconscious with boxing gloves then meticulously break all his limbs
>Sic a cyborg dog on him
>Have sex with him and then kill him afterward, not unlike a praying mantis
>face him in a gladiator arena like a star trek fight scene
>have him crucified
>complete all DLCs, buy all implants, and hoard unique items to confront him as an armored, sci-fi death knight.
>pummel him with metal nuka-cola road sign

The fact there even is a video game where you have all these different ways to off Matthew Perry is a small miracle

The soundboard prank calls where he calls real hookers are kind of funny

Last time I played New Vegas, I was decked out and laid waste to his entire staff before blowing up this little bitch's face clean off with a magnum and there's nothing that he could do about it. It felt good.

Dumbass. Beeny is just a puppet, being manipulated by forces beyond his control. Sure he did put two bullets inside your skull, but it wasn't really him who pulled the trigger. It was House who stood there and watched you die knowing full well there was something to do about but chose not since he'd rather scrape it off your corpse than deal with an actual person. You just happen to live, which was just the thing to make him die.

I killed a lot of NPCs in my life but nothing brought me as much pleausre as Shooting House in the face as he begged for mercy Hail Caesar!

You obviously don't understand the story if you think house is responsible for your death. He only hired you to bring him the chip. Benny tried to kill you because you had the chip and he knew it was valuable. That robot in goodsprings was malfunctioning and wasn't actually a part of house, and if it was a part of house, then house saved your life because that robot saved your life by notifying the doc that you got shot.

House wasn't a villain at all. He was an anarcho capitalist. But if you sided with Caesar because you actually agree with him, then you're crazy.

With House in control humans will return to the Moon and beyond in a few generations. He's the good guy in this. The Courier was just unlucky, you don't honestly think a centuries old mastermind should directly intervene to save some smelly wastelander's life just because?

House did nothing wrong.

There was also a bunch of other weird subplot junk with Ulysses being the guy who set up the whole platinum chip shenanigans in the first place. But yeah, it wasn't really Benny doing all of that junk. He was just the trigger-man who was having his strings pulled by a bunch of different unseen forces.

Talk to Swank when you get to the Lucky 38 instead and set Benny up.

That's plainly just false. I actually completely forgot about Benny and wasn't even sure that's who I was looking at. The writing of FNV was just subpar in general. I didn't like Benny but it wasn't that satisfying. What kind of a noob even comes up with this kind of idea? What a lame, poorly fleshed out character.

Now THIS is a guy that's satisfying to take out. Holy fuck, getting the chance to finally fucking kill him was damn near as satisfying as watching Joffrey choke on his own blood.

This, except I wasted that fuckers whole camp. It also bothered me that you couldn't take anyone down off the crosses. It was just stupid gameplay decisions. You can shoot them and they fall down, but I can't just untie a damn knot? Especially stupid considering you had a quest where it would make sense to do so. I really have no idea what the rationale behind it is that you can't just take people down off a crucifix and have to shoot them instead but I found it pretty immersion breaking.

Otherwise yeah I was going to say it was far, far more satisfying neutralizing Mr. House and seizing power from him, Caesar, and the retarded NCR. Benny was just a stupid puppet and ultimately a pretty forgettable one to me. I've killed a lot of NPCs and frankly if you asked me to come up with a whole list of the most satisfying NPCs to kill I don't think Benny would even cross my mind.

Pick one, and only one. And if he really wanted to go that Ayn Randian route well tough titties he probably shouldn't have underestimated the intellect and resolve of someone he meant as his easily discarded errand boy and useful idiot.

House was megalomaniacal. Granted he wasn't necessarily quite as bad as the Legion or NCRYes NCR was bad they were just too incompetent, bureaucratic, and distant to make their evil as fully known but he was still pretty damn bad.

The problem with Mr. House is that he was basically a self serving and ruthless oligarch. Why shouldn't he get deposed? If I'm going to be going by his rules then it might as well be somebody even more intelligent and capable than he is, and at the end of it all I realized that with all the bad options out there funnily enough the only other least bad option I could take was choosing me. It would equal an era of neutrality and at least an uneasy peace in the region, a free and prosperous New Reno meant for the benefit of the people who actually lived there.

House was ultimately just another echo of the past, and the same greed, egomania, general avariciousness and flawed thinking that ended the world to begin with. Their whole generation lost their right to rule when they killed the world.
