Whether you feel like the original Fallout titles were better than 3, or never played the originals and are just wondering how Bethesda's amazing reinvention stacks up to its isometric predecessors, this is where you can meet up with other wastelanders and
Fallout 3 brought tons of newcomers to the post-apocalyptic world and history of Fallout. The first games were still juggernauts in the RPG world before Black Isle Studios closed its doors. I was one of the newcomers to the series when I got Fallout 3. It was my first Fallout experience. Which game was yours?
Fallout 1. I remember my neighbor showed it to me 11 years ago or so and taught me how to play it, along with Fallout 2 and a bunch of other old PC games. Then I bought the Fallout titles for myself for the Mac (I know that's very random) and kept playing them until they stopped working after an OS update a few years ago (which led me to buy a PC so I could play them again, as well as rediscover a bunch of old PC games I hadn't played since getting a Mac). I appreciate and understand the first two Fallout games a lot more now then all those years ago (as in, how the mechanics work, the lore, what they represented in the RPG industry, etc.), but back then, I don't know. I think there was just something cool to my younger self about shooting people in the balls and then watching them explode on occasion, and there still is; it's just not the main reason I like Fallout nowadays. But it was just a very cool game and it helped having my neighbor explain it to me and get me immersed in the game more

Yeah, I think so, too. I hate it when this happens in the groups.
Well my first Fallout experience was at my cousins house. He hired it out from the video shop and I watched him play it. It looked very different from all the other games I used to play 4-5 years ago. I then bought the GOTY edition and still love it to this very day...along with New Vegas. :)
I bought 3 on the Live market a few weeks ago, the minute I stepped outside of Vault 101 I get ganked by a radscorpion.

I first played Fallout 3 at my cousins house, (just like davokiin). I had never even heard of the game, I played through the experience in vault 101, and being thrown out into the wasteland knocked me for a loop. I had no idea what to do.Springvale Elementary Scared me so bad that I didn't go back in for the first half of the game. I ran out of caps before i left megaton paying for doctors and ammo, and, as a good character, I could steal or kill so i was left selling garbage to Moira at the Craterside supply. it was the best gaming experience i have ever had.
