If you’ve ever played the Fallout game series, you know that there’s always ‘Easter eggs’ dropped in the games – there has been secret references to The Simpsons, Star Trek, Pinky and the Brain – and those were all just discovered in the newly released Fallout 4 this week. A super sad, yet secret, Sons of Anarchy reference was also uncovered, and you’re not going to believe what you see.
You read that right – “Opie Hurst” – an amalgam of our beloved Opie Winston, and the actor who made him come to life, Ryan Hurst. The height, weight, eye and hair color, distinguishing marks (beard, arm tattoos, back tattoo) and personal effects – leather vest, wool knit cap, and motorcycle keys, all confirm for us that Fallout 4 really means Opie in this secret egg.
So now that Fallout 4 has made us all sad, we’ve decided to share with you today, a powerful tribute to Opie. It’s only the right thing to do. Tell us in the comments how much you still miss Opie Winston, and if you too, think it’s super cool Fallout 4 added him as a secret reference to their game! If you need more Ryan Hurst after this, check out his new show, coming to us in January.
