Fallout 3


Sep 14, 2011
West of Roots Hall.
Got given an Xbox 360 over Christmas, and treated myself to the game of the year edition of this. I played through both the preceding games on PC many moons ago and loved them, and I just started playing Fallout 3, as I now have many more leisure hours on my hands. I think it's brilliant - very atmospheric and, for want of a better word, realistic. It's easy to die and/or run out of ammo, and you actually have to think about what you're doing and look around to complete quests. I haven't really been cracking on with the game, just wandering around finding stuff and doing a few quests. I've also discovered that the best way to deal with combat is via the VATS system, otherwise you just fire off a load of bullets to, usually, very little affect. I picked up a few games for the machine, but at the moment, this is head and shoulders above the rest.

I appreciate I'm about 7 years off the pace here (not unusual for me), but any other fans out there?
