Don't worry, it's a video game. It's storyline is that a nuclear TEOTHAWKI has occured and your trying to survive with raiders, supermutants, zombies, slavers, radiation all trying to get you. This game is awesome!!!!! You make weapons out of junk, have to decontaminate radiated food/water. I know it's not really prepping, but it's alot of fun. I thought maybe it would be a good way to get some of your older teenagers (who are gamers) thinking about what could happen and be more supportive of real prepping.
