Fallout 3

fallout 4

“War. War never changes.” Nothing was ever more epic than Ron Pearlman’s amazing narration. Fallout 3 was a break away from the old school turn based game play for a RPG ¬†with some first person shooting. The simple plot is you grow up in Vault 101 after a huge scale nuclear war, being raised by a loving scientist father voiced by Liam Neeson. You grow up in your bland enclosed little world of the vault until one day your dad leaves and it is up to you to break free of the vaults grasp and find him in the wastelands of Washington D.C. Along the way you get meet a group of religious wackos worshiping an atomic bomb the town was built around, another burg overrun with giant ants that can even breath fire, a rivalry between two superheroes “a very fun Marvel Easter egg in that” , and a old lady who just wants her violin back, all while getting pulled into a conflict by the Brotherhood of Steel and the Enclave that will decide the fate of the wastelands.

So the game is amazing, despite it’s flaws. The game play is solid if you rely on the VATS targeting system, but the shooting otherwise feels off. The plot and side missions are engaging and even creepy in some cases like the mission about the kid who gets kidnapped and goes on a small killing spree thinking he’s a vampire (and don’t get me started on Tranquility Lane. Oh that was fucked up.) Fallout 3 has some of the best DLC to a game I’ve ever played with Operation Anchorage- which teleports you back in time to the conflict that lead to the nuclear war, Mothership Zeta- you get abducted by aliens, as well as three other packs and a level cap increase. Besides some occasional glitches and the occasional pain in the ass location to maneuver through, I highly recommend this game as one of the best games of last generation.
