Well strength is almost the most useless stat, who the hell makes a melee character :S

My tip is to put say 8 points into Intelligence right from the start so you can max out all your skills earlier. Agility is the next most important thing, charisma should be left at default unless needed for skills later on, then you can boost it. Lock pick /science etc should always take precedence over the gun/energy weapon skills, you get to complete more quests when you can pick locks etc so you level up faster to make up for the delayed leveling of your weapons anyway. Just remember to never boost your skills above 80 as well, because you get 10 from the bobbleheads, and 10 from the books, so if you want to speed level a skill, stop at 80 otherwise you are wasting potential points.

Squint your eyes to see clearly. Blur reality to make it real. Let focus go from your deceiving eyes, to know what's been concealed. We've all been blinded - Subjects to visual misinformation. A systematic denial of the crystalline.

That's ok. I played through FO3 like 10 times so I figured out that was the fastest/best way. In fallout 3, whenever I'd start a new game as soon as I got in the waste land I would run straight to rivet city, ignoring enemies and get the intelligence bobble head, that way right from lvl 2 I would be getting 1 extra skill point per level, whereas if you wait to get to rivet city during the main quest you would be on say lvl 10 or 12 and you would miss out on 12 skill points. So if you google where the intelligence bobblehead is, if you can get it early on it will be beneficial, but if you have to do a bunch of stuff to get it...don't worry about it.

I did even for my Hardcore playthru.  There are a bunch of perks for the melee/unarmed person.

Best way to pick stats/special is figure out what perks you want to have and get to those numbers.  For my melee guy I needed Str 7, Per 6, End 6, and Agi 7.  I had to take away from Chr but oh wells and it left me with a lowly 5 on Int but I'm fine with that.

Nihilism is right on the Int part.  If you want many skill points per level you need that number high.

i love str, i say put str 8 if you have the expansions so you can get spineless perk for 10. less trips to sell stuff, more damage. you think it's silly to be melee template, i think it's silly to not do range and melee on same char. lockpick>science, both stats seem mostly irrelevant to effectiveness and therefore unimportant. high int to level up fast is good advice, plus u can heal fast. imo put charisma and luck to 1, do the rest as you please. speech/barter all that matters in the charisma part really, and who needs luck?
