Fallout is an excellent game and owning the original CD is crucial.

Summary: Fallout started it all. I bought this because I've always loved it but never owned the original CD. I love the classic RPG elements and turn-based combat, as well as the humor and cameos. It stands above the rest.
Summary: The original “Fallout” is one of the greatest PC games of all time. But when it came out in 1997, at first I utterly neglected it. I first came upon it in the aisles of my local Wal-Mart, the only place to purchase PC games at the time in my rural town. I was browsing, looking for something new to buy with the money I got from my dish-washing job, when one of my close friends brought the box with the now-familiar power armor on the cover and said, “Hey, man, how about...
Summary: In 1998, Electronic Arts published a computer role-playing game entitled Wasteland, unique at the time with its post-doomsday setting. Nearly a decade later, Black Isle Studios developed, and Interplay published, sort of a spiritual successor of the game entitled Fallout, also featuring a post-doomsday setting. Though definitely unique for its time, the game is nonetheless something of a disappointing beginning to its series, despite the acclaim it received.
Summary: Great game for people that like older games and turn based. Beware of where you purchase from. I have a old copy of this and thought I was buying a old copy ... nope. It does meet the description of "Original in box unopened" but it's a much much newer version of this game in a plastic DVD case. Good still to keep in the collection, but not the original paper box like this image portrays and the description made me believe.
Summary: I bought this mainly for the packaging...but all you get is a dvd case with game inside. No instruction manual or glorious box art (If you're like me, you like collecting this stuff). Ah well - good game, but prepare to do a little research for instruction manual as the learning curve is high and no manual comes with game.
