Looking it up, apparently the constant radiation ghouls live with does damage their brains until a certain point they can no longer reason, becoming feral. It's not necessarily a guaranteed thing, as there are several centuries-old ghouls with full mental faculties.

Spoiler: THIS VAULT HAS SPOILED (click to show/hide)
Especially spoiled in that rereading the previous posts and spending some time on the wiki made me question my conclusions.  But hey, I don't care about FO4 canon.
Except for my husbandos...

A few months allying with the Mutant alliance, I spotted a mutant pogrom "hyperwave" travelling at nigh-FTL speed.  Thanks, hyperwave...

Thing is, it was the Mercenaries.  Think Mutons, down to the reinforced synth-flesh armor, just more equal opportunity.  Tough as rubberized nails, and in large number, and armed with those damn Gauss weapons from TFTD.  Except in this game the gauss accelerators are as lethal as they it should be, and also... fundamentally DNA-encrypted.

Sent my best gal up the gravshaft with a heavy machine gun, along with a rookie.  They both kneeled down and fired a hasty hail of high-caliber munitions into the nearest merc.

He soaked the hits, turned around, launched hypersonic gauss rounds in response.
RIP Jumpin Amelia and Sizzlin Harbringer.

It sounds like it depends on which canon you're referring to. Fallout 2 was a bit different than Fallout, and Fallout 3/NV were very different games from both of those.

Thrown into the lava repeatedly while trying to kill a flaming giant rock monster.  I thought killing it was for a quest, only to realize after it had killed me multiple times and that I'd eaten enough food for ten men that I was killing the wrong giant rock monster.

Didn't earlier Fallout games state that ghouls turned feral if they don't get enough radiation in the long term, because they have become dependent on it? The space ghouls in NV thought the ferals could even be restored with enough radiation.

Heat Signature. I aimed the ship I was on at a base to liberate it, and had less time to escape than expected. I made it almost to my pod, and got knocked out right by a turret that I didn't have time to wait for (and didn't realize I could just turn off).

At least I died a hero, probably. The game did freeze when I died while unconscious.

Considering that radiation heals ghouls, that would make sense.  I don't recall if Fallout 1 or 2 ever touched on the subject though, and I actually don't think they really had any feral ghouls.  Fallout 3 might have said something about it, but it's been so long since I've played it I don't remember.

The necropolis was full of ghouls in Fallout, if I remember correctly. Iím reasonably sure someone got upset if you killed them, too.

Necropolis was literally 75% ghoul.  Their brains literally rotted iirc, from slow radiation seepage into their vault.  Im guessing that slow amounts of it are detrimental to your mental health, since i dont recall any sentient glowing ones.  Well, maybe one.

And in Fallout 3 you can blow up megaton and the merchant becomes a ghoul.  How much more immediate can that transformation occur than over the span of maybe 12 hours and a few thousand rads?

The necropolis was full of ghouls in Fallout, if I remember correctly. I’m reasonably sure someone got upset if you killed them, too.
Only the sentient ones and the chained glowing ones, ironically.  One of the few things he didnt try to eat you over.

The glowing ones in the reactor in FO2 were all sentient, to my recollection. I seem to recall something about some rare feral ghouls, but the overwhelming majority were upstanding citizens. More or less.

And then there's whatever the fuck Harold is.

Necropolis was the part I couldn't really remember the details for.  Plenty of ghouls there, but I seem to recall none were immediately hostile.  Maybe those outside became hostile if you stood around too long or something?  That sounds familiar, but I've played FO2 much more than FO1, which is really fuzzy in my memory.

And I don't remember any hostile ones in FO2 at all.

New character, Survival mode. After one or two false starts, I slowly and meticulously clear the Museum of Freedom, sneaking around and ensuring that I take no damage whatsoever. After collecting every bit of scrap and at least one of each weapon, I get the Power Armor to go fight the Deathclaw.

I have full health and it still splatters me in one hit, sending me back to the Museum of Freedom entrance where I first turned on Survival.

Fallout 4.
