Sure, playing as Spider-Man and Batman is fun, but when it comes to Fallout 4, the real fun is when you join The Institute. In Fallout 4, towards the end of the game’s main campaign, you must join a faction, each with their own quests and missions. If you’re looking to free synths from enslavement, then The Railroad is for you, and joining The Brotherhood of Steel is for those seeking a more militaristic approach to life. There’s also The Minutemen and their endless supply of quests.
But no faction represents the dark side quite like The Institute, which bases its mission and ideology on science. His belief system is Lin Kuei rather than progressive; For those who may not know, the Lin Kuei in Mortal Kombat is made up of human fighters, including Frost, Sub-Zero, Cyrax and Sector, the son of the group’s Grandmaster. To control and enslave members, the Grandmaster introduces the Cyber Initiative, which takes their human warriors and turns them into cyborgs. You have the idea…

In Fallout 4, The Institute brings its scientific beliefs to the game’s wasteland, not only by enslaving advanced synthetic humans known as synthesizers, but also by kidnapping and transforming humans in Synthesizer. Whenever I play a game like this, I love creating my own internal RPG. In this case I turned the hero into a Darth Vader double – scarred face, black trench coat, black full face helmet, that works.

Her position within the institute is met with anger by her fellow leaders, but since my Darth is the intimidating type he is, I felt an overwhelming sense of power as I walked through the various halls and laboratory areas. I fit right in and welcomed the prospect of a scientific faction forcing everyone in the wasteland to sleep with one eye open because they’re out there scouring the night for people to catch and “synthesize”.
One of the better aspects of Fallout 4 is that once you’ve settled on one faction, you can’t just switch to another. That’s what I really love about joining The Institute: it creates real stakes that joining other factions doesn’t. Joining the institute basically means that you decide to sever all your ties and connections with the people of the surface world. They are considered monsters by many and the in-game dialogue system really adds to the fun.
If you want to be a more compassionate member of the faction, you can, but I’ve decided to give a full heel turn – we’re talking about Hulk Hogan joining the NWO and dyeing his stubble black. Being evil in games gives you the opportunity to be someone you never could or would be and to do things you would never even think of doing in real life. It satisfies the need to see what the other version of you is like, in some cases the more animal version of you.
I love saving cities and fighting bad guys, but when a game gives me the opportunity to be an antagonist myself, I see why antagonists in other games are the way they are. This is Psychology 101: understanding why people do the things they do. In Fallout 4, I can create a character with any type of mental and physical condition I want and carve out my own unique path.
There are people who are proud to be a Slytherin and will be when Hogwarts Legacy is released later this year. The Institute is basically Fallout 4’s version of Slytherin, but almost everyone is Voldemort (except for a few who appear more like Wormtail). Again, membership in The Institute is a great character study of why some people would join a group like them if the world were going to a nuclear wasteland. You live in an area safe from all threats – nuclear and physical – and have the technology that allows you to breathe fresh air and drink the cleanest water. It’s a tempting offer for everyone!
From a technological point of view, The Institutes are very advanced, but they are an ideological nightmare and they give evil a very very Well.
