Fallout has got to be the most revolutionary game to date.
Although it doesn't have pretty graphics and isn't a FPS like the other fallout games, this is a magnificent have fun piece of work. With a great story and loaded with fun quests, you can't go wrong with this game. And if you play it right down to every nook and cranny, you'll find it brilliant.
Fallout isn't a First Person Shooter(FPS) Role Playing Game(RPG) like Fallout 3 and Fallout: New vegas, it's more a tactical role playing game, where you command your character to do things, but that doesn't make it any less bit fun. combat is the only real drag, there's nothing wrong with it, but all you really do is click shoot click shot dead, then you move on. But it's still awesome.
Talking with people is fun, because YOU can decide what to say, you can get on their good side, or be down right stubborn and cause a lot of chaos with them. It also decides how the game will play out. This game has definitely spawned a brilliant series.
