I ate the wasteland – being a Cannibal in ‘Fallout: New Vegas’

I’ve played Obsidian’s 2010 RPG Fallout: New Vegas several times, but this time around, I leveled up and found an option I’d never encountered before: cannibalism.

„With the Cannibal perk, when you’re in Sneak mode, you gain the option to eat a corpse to regain Health. But every time you feed, you lose Karma, and if the act is witnessed, it is considered a crime against nature.“

I know it’s frowned upon in polite company, but this is the Mojave Wasteland, this is a matter of survival. Right?
