I better hear some Fallout news soon, Bethesda has been putting great games out but you can only kill so many backwards flying dragons before you wish to return back to the return.
EFMS - History of Fallout
- May 17, 2013
Danny goes on a trip to our irradiated future in this Fallout episode of Escape From Mount Stupid.
Fallout 3/NV gave me more than 200 hours of fun and exploring... definetely one of the highlights of this gen for me. Hope they plan on moving the series forward!
@Cappuccin0 Fallout 3 was my gift for returning back safely from a deployment to Baghdad, I still have that copy as of today. The HUGE strategy guide also, I wanted everything to do with that game. I got it because overseas we would play Morrowind for hours on end until we got 2 Xbox 360's in our activities tent (MWR). When I saw online there was a game like Oblivion that had guns I was sold, it was seriously the only question people asked "if this game had guns I'd buy it".
@mekentosh it's a possibility, although the Fallout world is mostly set in the future as people in the 50s saw it. Even if nuclear war does happen, I doubt we'll be hearing the same tunes :P
The best thing about the modern Fallout games is shared with the Elder Scrolls games: the massive, beautiful open world in 1st person. There's nothing like the feeling you get when you just start the game and you've got the whole world in front of you to explore. Hard to believe more developers don't try to make similar games. Yes, you have other sandbox games with impressive worlds like GTA and Red Dead Redemption, but it's just not the same in 3rd person.
@Marty Be I agree, these is just still much to find and explore in Fallout 3, plus the DLC's in the GOTY edition, plus New Vegas with it's own DLC's. If that wasn't bad enough, thrown on top Skyrim with Dragonborn and Dawnguard, still have lots to get through before they release a new Fallout game.
Thank a lot, Danny! I skipped out on Fallout 3(the rest were before my time) because a friend said its basically Oblivian with guns. He said while walking around he would think to himself "Shut up!!! You're supposed to be Lucien Lachance!!"
This was a pretty good episode.
I've always been interested in these games, so, if I were to play ONE of the modern fallout games, fr I lack an abundance of time, which should it be? And why?
@Gh05t_ Hey mate, for lack of time I would advise Fallout 3 in general, it's linear yet has it's moments when you can explore and such, get it on the PS3 or Xbox 360 for cheap. Compared to the originals on PC, and New Vegas I would think it's smaller world, and less gaming time to get through the main quests, side quests and of course the DLC's if you were interested. But it depends, some people would advise other choices, including Danny but take everyone's view into consideration and make a good choice for yourself when you have all the facts.
@Gh05t_ New Vegas. It's better in every aspect.
@adrianjarca @Gh05t_ everybody has its opinion, i hate New Vegas, i really dont like it, although i do love Fallout 3.
Ohh Bethesda. Why you are so good at making amazing open worlds and yet storyline in all your games just suck so much ?
Am I the only one here that though Fallout 3 was incredibly slow and tedious and didn't like it :| ?
@Daian I do agree with you but in a sense that it was way to linear compared to Fallout 1 and especially 2. I remember playing Fallout 2 times after times trying to achieve perfect ending for all of the towns. don't get me wrong, fallout 3 and new vegas are amazing games but they do feel like oblivion. The worst part for me as a regular Fallout 1 and 2 fan is that there weren't multiple BIG towns like New Reno, Vault City, NCR, San Francisco. I still prefer playing Fallout 2 to playing Fallout 3.
Best rpg franchise ever. I loved all the TES games and then they made fallout 3 what was even better. The post apocalyptic style is fucking awesome and the grim storie's just make it even better. Can't wait for fallout 4, i hope they make it more challenging then the last fallout games or skryim for that matter. And maybe more survival aspect's and definitly a hardcore mode.
Nicely written Danny, you have a fantastic knack of invoking nostalgia in games I barely remember playing in the 90's
Give the IP to Obsidian please. I don't want Bethesda shitting on the series anymore than they already have. 3 did enough damage.
Another good one Danny. I'd like to see do these EFMS films more often (they're the best feature on this site) but quite frankly I enjoy watching you play some mindless second-rate game just the same. :)) Gamespot needs more Danny!
Fallout 3, game that I will remember my whole life. Hope to finally see Fallout 4 this year. :fingerscrossed:
Same here.All my fingers and toes are crossed hoping that Todd Howard makes an appearance at the NextBox reveal event next week.
excellent viewing. fallout 3 was soo good, one of the best games i played this gen! i do want to play some more new vegas, i didnt play that game enough..
I think I'm the only person who found Fallout 3 & Fallout: New Vegas boring after playing for a few hours. I guess my sense of adventure is dead :(
aah fallout... Never got chance play other fallouts than F3 and NV. But still great games, at least NV would be if it wouldnt be filled bugs and glitches! I have high hopes to new fallout game, if there will be one.
Danny maybe u should just do escape from mount stupid ,and let random encounter handled by other cause by doing it both making u sick man
i like FO3 and NV,open world environment looking 2 survive in the wasteland it was awesome............
I think what made Fallout 1 and 2 great is how detailed the world is. They did a great job of fleshing out the post apocalyptic world. They show you how the various societies developed over time.
People didn't just sit around twiddling their thumbs after the bombs fell, they rebuilt their agriculture, economy, politics, etc. The various settlements had farms and business, they traded with each other, tried to make alliances, tried to salvage and replicate old world tech, and sometimes manipulated or plotted against each other.
When you go into a town, you see the kinds of food they grow, how they make their living, how they're surviving in the wasteland and it almost feels like that place could exist.
