Fallout 3 was on sale on steam for half price, and since i thought the commercials for it were funny, I decided to buy it. To my surprise, it's a really good game and is taking up a good portion of my time. Does anyone else here play it?

I bought it when it first came out for Xbox 360. I loved it so much! But I haven't played it in a few months. I got distracted with the side quests and I haven't completed much of the main quest. There's not as much to do once you reach level 20. Although I haven't looked into any of the expansion packs that increase the limit to level 25.

I always thought the Bethesda games lacked depth... it's got a massive scope, but no depth. Felt the same about Fallout 3. Yeah, it takes up a lot of time and has a very detailed world, but the world sort of felt fake to me. I dunno.. the 'cities' are too small, and there's just waaaaaaaay too many raiders. It's as if post-apocalyptic people decided that being a raider was the only way to survive, even when there's nothing to raid.

The VATS is good fun, though, but it gets a little boring after a few hours. Yeah, overall, it's a good game, about as fun as Dungeon Siege.

I bloody love it, bought it earlier last year during the Steam half price sale (Bioshock, L4D, HL1 and all its expansions and Fallout 3 for ~40). Not had the time to really dive into it though. I was supposed to go to some radio mast but I ended up just spending hours exploring the landscape.

My girlfriend is massively into it though. She has the collectors edition one with a bobblehead Pipboy .

The Broken Steel DLC takes the level up (from 20) to 30.

 
It'll all blow over.

I just randomly found a crashed alien on my way to vault 92. And it had a really good gun.

I don't know about the game not having depth. I saw a ghoul try to get into Tenpenny tower and immediately decided to help that ghoul take over the tower. After I found out what jerks the people were in the tower, i teamed up with the ghouls and killed every single one of them. And that was all my own choice, no arbitrary restrictions.

I do agree that there are a lot more raiders than people to raid. Oh well, games can't be perfect.

I got it for Christmas and played it through a couple of times, once I tried to stay neutral/good, and the second time I had fun being a complete shit to everyone. The virtual reality town was one of my favourite bits, it was just so mental.

On a kinda sidenote, I thought Terminator Salivation sometimes looked like a film version of Fallout 3.

I find it really hard to be evil, I can't help but do the right thing in the game.

Ohhhh.. if you call that depth, you haven't played the other Fallout games. Or KOTOR. Or Baldur's Gate. Or pretty much a lot of other true RPGs. And late in the game, you get what I mean by it having no depth.. the side quests are the best part of the game, there's not much else to it. The good/evil thing is rather shallow. Do the right thing and save the town from destruction or do the evil thing and blow up the nuke? And a bunch of other things I don't want to spoil, but you might as well have an good/evil switch.

Anyway, I think that's enough complaining, don't want to spoil anyone's enjoyment. Fallout 3 is probably the most controversial game out there, aside from Halo and Guitar Hero. But IMHO, what really sucks is everyone agrees it's great at the beginning, and I haven't met one person who liked the ending. There's still one scene between that that's the most awesome in any game, so that covers up for a lot. Those of you guys who haven't won it yet should

Muz, you have a very strange take on what makes a controversial game. Halo, Guitar Hero... Really?

I think i get what Muz means;

Halo - "The best 1st person shooter ever!" - no it wasn't, it was simply Microsoft's crown jewel on XBox. The single-player was not that special (repetitive set pieces and locations) and it was only saved by the multiplayer. Which is good, but only because the of the amount of support it receives from the developer and the community. Underneath the game and design isn't that much better than being generic.

Guitar Hero - everyone thinks it's a guitar game. If you play GH, you can learn the guitar - bollox! I am getting pretty good at GH but i suck at real guitars and it'd take me bloody years to be able to put anything together on a real 6-string, yet i can get good at a GH game fairly quickly since i am familiar with the 5-button control system. Also, it's controversial what with the countless versions of the game, the biggest rip-off being GH: Greatest Hits. 40 for 40 songs already released? Damn...

BTW, these are just my opinions, i still love you Dr. James!

On topic...

Never played Fallout 3, though i am a huge fan of Bethesda (Terminator: Future Shock, Morrowind, Oblivion) and am looking forward to playing F3 when i get round to buying it. I still have Mirror's Edge, Gears of War and NASCAR 2009 on my 360 that i haven't even switched on yet!

Well, see any gaming forum. Fallout 3, Halo, Guitar Hero have like 30 pages of threads. My favorite forum has TWO massive threads on Fallout 3, one to discuss how it's the worst game ever made, the other to discuss how it's an epic creation.

But I'll just say that if you love the Bethesda games and you love the post-apocalyptic setting, you'd find Fallout 3 to be the best game ever made .
