Fallout 3


Fallout 3 stands in stark contrast to Fable 2. With all the similarities they have you can't overlook the differences. It's no doubt that Peter Molyneux and his studio created an wonderful game (dare i say, underrated?). But 'tis the season for games to get short shrift in terms of playing time. A couple times a week I pop on over to Gamers With Jobs to see what they are writing (moaning) about. I find that they write a lot about what I'm into and write a lot more effectively then I do. They've written both about Fable and Fallout at length so I'm not breaking new ground here when I say that they are both great games. However... Fallout 3... Fallout 3. A remarkable game. It helps feed the lack of a PC beast in my life. I have a long lost affection for games like Fallout. My first gaming experiences might have been on the Atari 2600, but my most memorable are on the Amiga and C64. I'm an Ultima guy at heart. An adventurer. I picked up Fallout instead of Call of Duty 5 because Best Buy had a special edition of it. I got home, plopped it into my Xbox and went to work. After about an hour in 'the vault' and deciding how i wanted to play the game it opened up it's world to me and I got hooked. Stepping out of Vault 101 is an experience to be remembered. Highly recommended.

So addictive right? I ended up beating the game with less than half of the map explored, so I'm gonna have to go back and play through again. I was still at 40 hours. Love it.
