Two months ago, Redditor NoohjXLVII wrote a post thanking Bethesda for Fallout 4, which helped take his mind off family tragedy. [Image via Father | YouTube]
"I have spent over 500 [hours] in this game," NoohjXLVII wrote on the Fallout 4 Reddit (via Eurogamer). "Partly due to the fun gameplay, the new survival mode, and just the game in general. My dad passed away last year (age 56)... I didn't take it well."
To deal with the pain, he made a bipedal sentry bot and named it after his father. "The name of the bot was GR-36, as his name was Greg."
Then, this winter, when NoohjXLVII finished Fallout 4, he got a call that 24-year-old his brother was in the ICU. Sadly, his brother passed away. (His friends started a GoFundMe, which goes into more detail about his medical condition.)
"Thank you Bethesda for providing me with this wonderful game and distraction for everything I'm going through," NoohjXLVII wrote.

Bethesda not only sent NoohjXLVII a care package, but added his brother to the game.
"The words they use sound exactly like him, however he was also a pretty funny guy, full of puns," NoohjXLVII wrote yesterday, thanking Bethesda and saying he would forever be in their debt.
"P.S.," NoohjXLVII added. "Don't feel guilty about taking his stuff! He insists you take it and in real life he would give you the shirt off of his back to help those in need."
