    Oof, don't tell the wife.

    It wasn't because I was trying to be a dick. For most, if not all of the game, I had been very diplomatic in my interactions with the world and the factions within them. The only time I played favorites was with my crew. But by the time I got to this specific part of the game, I was angry at the character in front of me and all that this person stood for. So, I chose the sarcastic response and I ended up putting two bullets into this person's head. And then the game was over.

    I freakin' loved The Outer Worlds. As I write this, I'm listening to the soundtrack. I'm even contemplating another play through. It's relatively short for an RPG of this caliber, but that makes it more inviting for another run, with different character options and different choices. The second time around knowing what I need and don't need will undoubtedly speed up the play time because I spend a lot of time looking at my stuff. And when it comes to in-game inventory, I'm pretty much a hoarder.

    It never fails. I will slog through the slow hell that is being overburdened just to make that extra cash. No vendor trash is too cheap. Loot everything and sell everything. Except the things I'm unsure I'll need - which contribute to the majority of my inventory space, always wondering if I'll need it later or not and forever making my steps stupid slow.

    My inventory management should be simple: sell or don't sell. Need or don't need. The problem is, I'm unsure what I should sell and what I truly need. I find that this somewhat reflects my habits IRL, although I'm no where near a hoarder, there are definitely things I can and should get rid of.

    What about you my fellow Insiders? What are your in-game inventory habits? Would you say it's a reflection of your out-of-game life as well?

    It's too bad there's no IRL vendor that we can dump all our trash arbitrarily to make some coin. I'd be rich.

    Irl you can get pants with multiple pockets and consider that you have extended inventory.

    Google is my friend when arranging my inventory to know what is the best compared to other

    It is good that some of the game would provide a "Bank/Inventory" auto management/filter system, I hate when there was too many stuff to stock in my bank.

    what is your game in capture?

    On any game, I always have second thoughts on every item I'm about to sell. It might be an important item later on. When storing items, I always make it clean and good to look at. And just like you, I make sure that my inventory is full before going back to town.

    I remember the gold old days of TF2 inventory where you had to choose which items to carry since you get so many drops.

    Ah the classic case of I might need this item later, make sure to not drop it. I went through so many playthroughs of games in which I carried items from start to finish that I didn't end up using at all but thought I would so I didn't drop them.

    I kinda always looking on the selling price. If it's too low it deserves to be removed. Not everytime but I mostly act this way.

    I'm a very orderly person. Some may not consider me as such but I like things organized my way.

    This greatly reflects in the way I organize my virtual self in games.

    I like to maintain my items neatly in order and only keep what I absolutely need. Pick up everything, sell or trade those I don't have a use for and keep the rest greatly organized by either type or in alphabetical order.

    This was a fantastic thread Cowboy! I got to express a part of myself I'm very content with.

    I always try to keep all the items in my inventory, sadly there are few times when i have enough space. But i do consider inventory expansion items on top.

    Hello friends,

    We don't call it "inventory management" in real life, but a vacuum cleaner. lol

    (sorry, just a funny joke :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:)

    Definitely a hoarder here. I'm usually slogging along with maybe 3 empty inventory slots open hahaha! It doesn't matter what game it is. I'll start out by grabbing up everything I can. Later in the game when I realize that most of the stuff is not needed I'll dump a considerable amount of it only to pick up more junk later. LOL!

    i sell everything, that i really dont need. like it clean and empty. the hard part is the running around to find a shop. coz on the other hand i loot everything lootable. Even if i have to walk slowly for half an hour, leave nothing behind :D

    damn right especially since crafting takes a lot of scrap metal and requires items
    and most of the crates need money to get a key for them
