Fallout 4 is coming...and I can't wait. So while I wait for the newest installment in the Fallout series, let me tell you a tale of a young Fallout fan named GatorMacheteJr. and the deal he made with Bethesda. He traded in BOTTLE CAPS for a pre-order of the game. But did he get his money's worth? What did he ACTUALLY pay for his copy of Fallout 4? The answer is shocking!

Fallout 4, please come now!

Going with [some of] manufacturing materials price to determine bottlecap value is silly, by that logic iphone is worth measly few bucks.
What about rubbery sealing, paint, manufacturing costs? But you don't need to actually estimate those, you could just, you know.... Look up a market price for a bottle cap? It's not only easier, faster but more accurate too.

As a homebrewer I have loads of fresh caps, I am ready for a nuclear war - which brings me to another point - why exactly are you guesstimating the 'split' date based on subpar games and interviews with people who butchered the franchise if you could just look it up in a Fallout Bible, a thing literally writen by people who created this universe?

I really enjoy your stuff MatPat, but this episode contains a heckload of misguided inaccurate footwork. You're better than this.

Lol, The gold bar in Fallout stamped 2 oz on it... -_-
Unknow Knowledge
The government probably didn't see this coming xD But does this mean we can buy things with the bottle caps or just sell them?

avoir du pois is french for "have some peas"...?
The BelgianWaffle
if youre wondering why gold price grew so much in 50 years, because the worlds main Gold mining countries eg) South Africa, i dont really know any others, etc. simply ran out of gold making the shiny honey brick more scarce AND DONT TOUCH MY COUSINS YOU WAFFLE CONSUMING DEMON GOUL!
The BelgianWaffle
wait wait wait, is it just me? or would it make more sense if fallout took place in a world where the cold war(almost ww3) didnt end and eventually went nuclear?(because it was meant to be a nuclear war but it never really went nuclear) also if your going with the resource crisis story then that also wouldnt make sense because how did they get all of those powerful nukes and weapons?
Kid With Reason
Mat pat you should pixelize yourself and take place of Mario in your intro it would be pretty useful in your vids too
Finn&Ellie Hamilton
Now I have to figure out how much it is in pounds, I'm English
Finn&Ellie Hamilton
Is it weird watching this in 2017? Like if you are
Anna Elise
Ugh matpat. The kid paid in MODERN bottle caps. Not 1950's calculate the price of modern cap materials. And while some companies still use steel, aluminum is also a popular cheaper metal found in caps. You'd have to see the different brands, estimate how many of each brand there are, find the source materials for those brands, THEN calculate the price. Dude. You're getting lazy on me.
Anna Elise
Okay, I hear it a LOT in currency talk that silver and gold are "worthless" "unusable" objects we arbitrarily assigned value to. But they are not. The reason these metals are valuable is their specific properties as elements. They are resistant to corrosion, very easily mailable, ductile, and efficient for the conduction of not only heat, but electricity. That's a damn useful and versatile material. One that in Stone Age technology times one could use to their benefit to gain tons of power. Not only are they insanely useful as a material for anything your cave person mind would desire, they are super shiny and pretty. I don't know a human who doesn't appreciate beauty. Take an item that is a useful material, scarce, Pretty, AND resistant to corrosion (i.e. There being loss of investment) and you get something that makes for a damn good currency. It's easy to see why gold and silver would evolve into a worshiped standards for value. Gold and silver did not start as fiat currencies. Over time due to changing technology their usefulness decreased while their original symbolism remained, but visit any recycling center and you will find people tearing apart smartphones and microwaves to get the gold silver and copper inside. These metals have value and retain value due to their ability for practical use. The bottle caps in fallout speak to me as a reference to World war cap collections, where people in the home front would gather scrap metal to donate to the war, occasionally being able to exchange them for ration cards. Even if that's not the case, think of the caps like gold. They are small units of pure useable metal in a world where finding and refining such things would be difficult, but where the need for those metals is high.
