The moment the dog appeared in the Fallout 4 Trailer – the internet screamed in unison “That Dog is going to die!” It’s not a big stretch to think like that. Lately it has been a trope in gaming to give you a dog, and then kill the dog for an emotional reaction. Fallout 4 developers noticed that people did everything they could to make sure that DogMeat in Fallout 3 survived until the end, and they felt that the dog would be more useful if he couldn’t die. One less thing to worry about. Good news?
