Summary: Today's games are all about the newest and most impressive graphics, a year or so after the "newest" game is yesterdays news. Fallout 3, and new vegas are two game that aged very rapidly(although fun, and repayable). Fallout 2 is not only the most popular game in its series, but one of my all time favorite games. In Fallout 2 a player is able to do practically anything they wish to do, a complete upgrade form the original game.
Summary: I cant say enough of whats already been said many times, Fallout 2 and the Fallout series in general are just great games. Taking your created player and diving head first into the retro-futuristic world of an apocalyptic America that was frozen in the 1950's mindset, with the addition of advanced technology. I wont say much as far as story goes because learning it in-game is far more rewarding.
Summary: This game is legendary! They don't make RPGs like that anymore! Gripping story, hundreds of hours of gameplay, a huge free word to explore, killable children (It might sound sick, but it is about the freedom the developers gave to the player. If you don't want to hurt them... don't do it, but 'Black Isle' won't restrain you from doing it!). The game was a perfect blend of funny and adult content, with dozens of memorable dialogs.
Summary: I got caught messing with a farmers daughter, forced into marriage at gunpoint, got addicted to jet then pimped my wife while I went to run guns and star in porn. THAT my friends is a ROLE PLAYING GAME Possibly not just the greatest RPG of all time but GAME of all time. Black Isle Studios, we miss you.
Summary: When I played I was a BLAST, it was the first one of the RPG games I've ever played, and as the people say you'll always remember the first one. It is a highlight in the RPG business. Realistically I have no words to qualify this one if I could I'll give it a 1000 or even a 1000000.
Excerpt: A lot happens after the hero walks off into the sunset, as Fallout's hero can likely attest to. Cast out from the Vault, the jumpsuit-clad wanderer from the first game ambled north and set up shop along the coast of post-WW3 California, founding the village of Arroyo. Fast-forward about eighty years, where, apparently, the Vault Dweller's poor luck has been passed on to his descendents.
Summary: Absolutely the best RPG game I've ever played. It is a true non-linear game that lets you do pretty much whatever you want. It is fully possible to smash orphans in the groin with a sledge hammer, if you are so inclined. The game suffers from a myriad of bugs in its original form, applying "Killap's Unofficial Fallout 2 Patch" removes most of the bugs and adds a bit of extra content.
