I know this is being posted amid all of the posts about Fallout 76, so it might be ignored, plus it's technically a day late, but… I just wanted to say I really love the Keller Family Holotapes. Like, the tapes themselves, not just the reward you get for gathering all of them. I love how you get a glimpse of hearing the actual apocalypse through the third tape, and the partially relatable fifth tape we have, where one sibling just outright says 'F that noise with surviving with YOU people' and that he has a mushroom cloud to catch. The voice acting is great, in my opinion.
(1:13 for the third, 1:49 for the fifth)
This also reminds me that I really like all of the terminal entries you have from the moment/moments just after the bombs fell in Fallout 3. It was really humbling, saddening, and just flooring to wander into a random office building and find a lone terminal with a skeleton seated at it with an entry talking about how they've heard something and there's a mass panic both outside and in, and on how if anybody else reads this, they want them to let their family know they "love them".
It might be corny, but I just think it really is potently sad.
Fallout 3 might have its flaws compared to other entries in the series (New Vegas also had some great minor moments like this, like at Black Mountain Radio), with some people not liking the atmosphere in terms of how destroyed the region is comparable to the year, but I really think they did a great job with these sad, haunting terminal entries.
Oh, and who could forget those random entries sometimes found with just 'corrupted' noise and keymashing, like in the Dunwich Building?
