Fallout 3 is hands down the best game I've played in this generation
so far (and that's saying a lot coming from someone who has so
adamantly advocated Bioshock and Uncharted these past two years).
Hell, it's one of the best games I've ever played, period.
It started out a little slow for me and after a couple of freezes (and
the first RROD while I was still taking the T.O.A.D.), I was ready to
just throw it on the backburner. The 3 weeks I waited due to RROD
weren't that bad.
However, when I got my system back the first time and decided to give
Fallout 3 another shot, I discovered a vast world waiting to be
explored and an itchy trigger finger ready to take out anyone who got
in my way. Bethesda deserves all the applause they can get because
they truly resurrected a classic franchise and made it relevant and
important to the gaming world once again. This is easily the Game of
That second RROD was Hell for me. I eventually decided to just buy a
Jasper Arcade unit and of course the first thing I did was pop Fallout
3 in there and continue the journey. I haven't even gotten halfway
through the main quest and I already know that this is my favorite
game of the generation. I've been spending all my time just exploring
the Wasteland and discovering as many locations as possible. I have
about half the map unlocked at this point.
Anyway, if you haven't yet given Fallout 3 a shot, there's no reason
to wait. This is *the* game to play on either system. Hell, you can
still get the Collector's Edition in some stores (and you can always
use a lunchbox, right?).
Yeah when all of the new games came out this Fall/Winter , the first
game from those many games , was Fallout3 and it stayed there until I
had upwards of 110+ hours on my gamesave ,while neglecting all my
other games , I couldn't pull Fallout3 out of my 360.
I have similar trouble removing the disc from my console. I think it's
some sort of psychological condition because it's almost like the disc
drive is glued shut. LOL
I don't think I'm anywhere near 110 hours but then again I lose track
of time when I play this game. I experienced a similar euphoria when
playing BioShock and, a little further back in history, GTA: San
I ended up
collecting every bobble head and doing every little side mission I
I haven't even really thought about that. I did glance at a guide that
stated I had to look out for one when I returned to Vault 101 (damn
spoiler). I already got the one in Megaton.
Fallout3 is a great game. I didn't think I would end up using
the VATS combat , but I ended up using it 99% of the time.
Same here. I love my shooters so when my friend described it to me, I
was skeptical I'd like it but I tend to favor it because of how fun it
is to watch.
It fits the
RPG genre pretty well. Plus once you get up to level 20 you can roam
the wastleand with little fear on a harder difficulty. Especially if
and when you get Fawkes on your side. He's seemingly invincible, he
didn't die once from enemies , but I had to test out his strength by
killing him and he's stronger than a behemoth mutant, took longer to
My friend said the exact same thing. He kept going on about Fawkes. I
myself am more interested in Charon who is supposed to be the toughest
hireling you can get. I like him more because of his disinterest in
your alignment - I don't want to have to be at best behavior all the
time with Fawkes and I can't be evil enough to attract many of the
Here's some help with Bobble's , after I found 15 of them I could'nt
seem to have luck with the others , so I used a little 'help' from
YouTube-Hopefully you haven't destroyed Megaton yet , there's a
strength bobble there.
I disarmed the bomb. Megaton is too useful as a base of operations. As
annoying as Moira is, she gets major kudos for always have a ton of
money to sell off all the scraps I pick up in the Wasteland.
