The God of Games for the Year 2008
At first glance, I was skeptical of this game because I rarely buy a game that has a lot of people saying "you have to get this game because its Fallout 3". But when I picked it up and played it, I was hooked the first time I used the V.A.T.S. system and the controls were so easy to use. I don't want to spoil much of the storyline here; so all I will say is the storyline is not extremely exciting, but it makes you think and wonder which makes a huge hit for a post-nuclear era. If you have Elder Scrolls: Oblivion, you will feel at home with this game, as they also created Fallout 3. The controls are almost identical to Oblivion with the addition of the V.A.T.S. and a few additional HUD items and the fact thats its in the near future. The V.A.T.S. allows you to pause the action and select a body part to hit as well as giving the percent chance to hit ad the limbs health. The fun factor is boosted with the addition of cinema scenes of each hit or miss, it never gets old seeing eyes and gore flying out of the enemies head as it gets decapitated. An additional factor is the ability to cripple an enemies arm/leg and making them vulnerable. This game is a must buy game not because its Fallout 3 but because of its graphics, free-moving environment (huge area to freely explore, no "you on a mission you cant go that way" restrictions" a wide variety of skills, perks, weapons, and health items as well as armour and equipment. This game definitely focuses on the fact that you don't want to run in guns blazing or just run through the game as quickly as possible (you will miss tons of items that way). This game deserves to be put in the Hall of Fame for this decade if not all time, thats how good it is.
one of the best things about fallout 3 is the game play/story mode. its an amazing game i sat on my bedroom floor playing it for like 6 hours the one thing that annoys me about it is how big the map is once you reach D.C. all war breaks loose so its worth the wait.
ONE TIP: CONSERVE YOUR AMMO!!!!!!!!
Favorite Game Ever
This is my favorite game ever I have been playing this since 2008 and it's now 2013 it is really fun it actually makes me feel like im in a wasteland I never get tired of exploring The Capital Wasteland killing of radiated animals and using V.A.T.S to blow off all my enemies body parts. this game is amazing all time favorite i recommend this game to everyone even if it's not your style give it a try.
I completely enjoyed this game and for me it has high replay value if you can ever beat the entire game!
This is a great game.
Fallout 3 brought me in to the fallout series and other games by Bethesda overall it is just a great game
LOVE THIS GAME!
i played this game for probably 2 years straight! did everything in this game and never once got bored! i love it! i would absoulutly recommend this game to anyone! if you are looking for a good game, play this! you will not regret it!
Best game ever
when i played this game i loved it.it is my favorite game i ever played.you kill lots of creaters like mirlercs,raiders and other creaters it is the best game ever
This game is an utter masterpiece and thats probably actually an understatement it has amazing soundtracks same as the game that followed it both games have very similar graphics except for that new vegas has a more advenced color pallet.
not what i thought it was
when i saw the title i thought it was a fps but when i played it it was an rpg simulation type. it was a fun game but it was like Elder Scrolls but not as good. this game is only casual to me because there is nothing major going on in the game like gangs or riots only quietness around only 5 miles of dirty crumbled towns and the only real safe town Megaton.
In my opinion this is one of the best games ever made,maybe the best. Game play is great. The story line is amazing and twists and turns. I love the side missions and theres a ton of them. This game combines war and strategy and really makes you think. i love how you can make weapons and upgrade those weapons.You can play this game for hours and hours on end and still not get tired of it because theres so much to do and explore. Its really something when you can say COD cant hold a candle to falllout 3. Its the best game thats available on xbox or ps3 hands down. Go buy fallout 3 now but buy game of year edition because its got all expansion packs and its cheaper than buying packs separtly
