Didn't one of the vaults become haunted?

you could be thinking of vault 106.

They pumped in psychoactive drugs through the vault's vents after 10 days of the door closing.
this made everyone bat **** insane, and when you visit the fault you get strange hallucinations, your vision goes blue and you see scientists or people walking.
this was because the gas never stopped.
i didn't include this because i thought the list was too long already, but I'll probably include it in another part if this does well

is it possible to turn off the drugs with level 100 science? because at the beginning of the vault there is a computer you can hack and im not sure what it does. also the vault people all carry meleweapons and only attack you and not eachother.

or an anti hero, he grew up in a village where every year they sacrafice somebody for no reason, then when there was only 5 people left they all agreed to kill themselves to repent but he couldn't bring himself to do it and now he wanders the wasteland searching for the death that has found so many others before him. He would essentially be looking for a hero's death but for some reason no matter how hard he tries or how close to death he gets by some bizzare twist of circumstance he always survives... because he's a companion NPC and just falls unconcious when he would die.

me and a friend are replaying new vegas, and we like my idea. that NoBark is the last survior, driven mad by the truth of his home and wandering the wastes, attacked by radscorpions and survived but the poison making him worse in the mind, but allowed him to forget about the vault, and finally he settled down in novac

To be fair I don't think they could have made him a hero since he basically forced a woman into screwing 5 people repeatedly so that her husband wasn't killed; then he was killed anyway, i think people might get a bit butthurt at that.

First off, the five people who survived didn't have to be all members of the Justice Bloc, so that applies even to our nameless friend (the Fifth Guy, The One Who Survived 11, whatever). Second of all, it wasn't mentioned anywhere for who or to how many members from the Justice Bloc did Katherine Stone (I just looked it up on the wiki) did the sexual favors to. So basically, it still could've been someone kindo innocent.

Vaults I found peculiar:
Vault 27: This vault would be overcrowded deliberately. 2000 people would be assigned to enter, double the total sustainable amount.

Vault 29: No one in this vault was over the age of 15 when they entered. Parents were intentionally redirected to other vaults.

Vault 42: No light bulbs of more than 40 watts were provided.

Vault 53: Most of the equipment was designed to break down every few months. While repairable, the breakdowns were intended to stress the inhabitants unduly.

Vault 55: entertaining/pornographic media was prohibited.

Vault 56: All entertaining /pornographic media was prohibited except those of one particularly bad comic actor. Sociologists predicted failure before Vault 55.

Vault 77: Populated by one man and a crate full of puppets.

Vault 92: Populated largely by renowned musicians, this vault was a test bed for a white noise-based system for implanting combat-oriented posthypnotic suggestions.

Vault 106: Psychoactive drugs were released into the air filtration system 10 days after the door was sealed.

The Vault 77 jumpsuit gives +5 to melee weapons and unarmed skills, as it is said that these were the Puppet Man's favorite methods of murder.
also
When you wear the Vault 77 jumpsuit in Paradise Falls or around any other slavers, it has no effect on them despite the fear of the Puppet Man in slaver colonies and the "Burn This Goddamn Jumpsuit" holotape.

That info about vault 11 is missing so much backstory though. The five people, who survived, were the sole survivors of a vault-wide civil war. But let's start from the beginning.

Originally, before the Great War and therefore before all the vaultdwellers got in, only the overseer (excluding, of course, the vault-tec technicians) knew how the vault was going to operate. When the members of the vault find out that they were to sacrifice a person each year to keep the life-support systems going, they (justly?) blamed the overseer and selected him to be the first sacrifice.

Thus, the tradition of sacrificing overseers was born. After each overseer finished his elected period, he was sacrificed to the vault. Because there were democratic votes for the overseer, pseudo-political parties developed, and they sought to secure votes for people excluded from their parties and therefore keep themselves safe. Therefore, the party that had the majority could dictate death sentence to any member of the vault every year.

One party that had the majority (I think it was called the Justice Bloc, if I remember correctly - I'm writing this from memory) manipulated rest of the vault members to do their bidding. One woman especially was asked to perform sexual favors to party members and was told that if she does not comply, her husband will be selected for the next overseer.

The poor woman did that, but her husband was elected anyway in the next elections. She broke secretly in the armory, stole some weapons and managed to kill several Justice Bloc (?) members before being caught. She was imprisoned and soon elected the next overseer.

What the Justice Bloc did not anticipate is that as a new overseer, she changed the rule from a democratic vote for a overseer to a random computer generated vault mamber. This caused chaos because Justice Bloc lost their edge (they actually became the most likely to be elected) and led to the civil war.

I know, TL;DR

Yeah definitely, mate, it's my favorite game (and game series) ever. This right here is from Fallout: New Vegas, which I personally prefer over Fallout 3 a little, but both are great. There's tonnes of similiar harsh, thought provoking stories in the games and they're often told in a very subtle and natural way that makes you appreciate them even more. Few times, I spent several extended periods of times just browsing Fallout Wiki and that was even when I had finished the game long before that (I have picked up the game again since then, two months ago, and finished it).

Anyway, Fallout is the ****, I can't stress that enough. Personally, I believe video games are an art form and therefore are capable ataining a status of an art piece (in the future when the society recognises that). Fallout is one of the few game franchises, where I think it may already be there.

TL;DR get it, it's often on sale on steam and then it's like five bucks or something.

Not at all I'd say, both games have a pretty unique story and there's no information from FO 3 that you would need to know in Vegas storywise. There are some referrences to earlier Fallout games, but it doesn't spoil anything if you don't know them and since they are also from Fallout and Fallout 2, playing FO 3 won't help you that much. And New Vegas is much better gameplay-wise, so if you've played some newer games lately, it might even be better for you to play Vegas first to adjust.
