I bought this game recently, and have put in about 30 hours of combined story and side-questing, and I'm still failing to see how it could be even close to being such a popular game? I just don't get it...
Playing Oblivion at the moment and it's the first 'real' RPG I've made the effort to go through. I'm considering Fallout next. Is it important to play an earlier Fallout or should I play this one straight-away?
I'm playing through this now on PS3 and am really enjoying it. It feels quite small in comparison to Skyrim and the world isn't as fun to explore but I like the fact that your decisions here are far more impactful. I just wish it's world wasn't so empty, but it makes sense within the context of the game.
GameSpot gives all the greatest games a 9.0............seems low, they should give them at least a 9.5.
I bought the game of the year edition for $20 on ps3, and haven't noticed any issues yet. It plays great ,and looks great, and I am so addicted I can't put it down.
Why do multiplatform games end up being inferior on the PS3...Im starting to regret switching from 360...now that RROD is fixed I think Ill sell this inferior machine and buy a new 360.
lmao, he completely blows the ghouls head off, message comes up "wastelander head crippled"...... need to redefine the word "crippled".
This game touched my heart and keeps doing it. It's my favorite game of all time... I just love how the Wasteland looks and I would love to live in a world like that. Hahah sounds creepy but in conclusion GET THIS GAME!

@PrplMnkyDshwsr7 Come on man. As much as I love FO3. I will have to say New vegas is not bland. I mean in vegas at one moment, you can be in dark Mojave desert, then the next up north in the hills were it snows. The environment and feel is still cool in vegas, and the new faction system, makes things even more interesting. The only bad thing about vegas, is that for some reason it has more bugs. Still i'd say it is an improvement. But FO3 is still and instant classic. Check out my review on my page anyhow, and tell me your thoughts. You seem like proper FO fan. Peace.
Hi guys. loved this game. So much so I reviewed it myself. So check out my page for an alternative review. Thanks.
Love this game, I was done with new vegas in a month...FO3 I just keep playing, such a better atmosphere. The DC ruins are sooo much more enjoyable to keep re-visiting then bland new vegas. Get the PC version modded up and the replay value seems infinite.
@wondernova no problem dont mind answering fallout questions right now...been playing 3 non stop the past week so i know more now than i did when i helped
@wondernova the talking tree (Harold btw) is in Oasis (which going there can also start a side quest) i remember Oasis being north and hidden in a canyon
@jecomans I must have watched this review like 10 times since the game came out. Every time I wanna find a new good game to get into I look up lists and top tens and whatever and this always comes up. Then I come here, watch this review, and get incredibly turned off to the idea. It looks sooooooo boring. Now I just came back here because Fallout made it into the elite 8 of the Greatest Series of the Decade contest on this very site and here I am again, still incredibly confused by why so many people would consider this entertaining, let alone one of the best games ever. I would try it for free, but to pay for what seems so boring to me has just never felt worth it yet.
@jecomans If you don't like it then you don't like it.There are games that are rated 10/10 and considered "All Time Best" that I play and say the same thing you're saying about this.But I love Fallout1,2,3,NV.
@btara_katong You have good taste in games.
@urmstonbeaumont There may be some references or "lore" that you won't understand but it won't really take away from the game at all. I say play this one first.
Definately 10 in my book.
@sknight175216 Agree, Kotor 1 and 2 are great games and left a long lasting apeal to me. Looking forward to play Fallout 3.
@elmerfud43 don't forget, they gave GTA IV a perfect 10
@jagcivtec The reason multi platform games work inferior on the ps3 is because of the unreal engine. Game developers have a hard time translating a pc designed game to it, were as microsofts xbox is a smooth transition. It sucks that sony didn't make a more user friendly design engine, but exclusives like uncharted, god of war 3, or killzone 2 & 3 work and look fantastic.
@Tuan3 @elmerfud43 Ha! Now that's good reviewing right there. Sub-par shooting, cover mechanics, driving, melee combat, cover system, graphics, characters, writing, character development, and story. Then to top it off they try every which way to disguise the same old driving and shooting missions to make the player think they doing something other than just driving and shooting for the entire game. Perfect 10!
@canuckbiker agree with you on the exclusives being great both technically and visually, but too many amazing games are multi platform and I have no love for having to play an inferior version.
@jagcivtec I have a pc and X box 360 but no PS3.I miss out on some good games on PS3.
