FO 1/2...though there were attempts to make something as good as those two games (Wasteland 2, UnderRail and ATOM RPG come to mind), they're, IMO, still uncontested in what they achieved (at least when it comes to video games).

As for newer ones. I'll take FO 3/NV over Metro Exodus (can't really compare them to Metro 2033/LL, they are more of a classic linear shooters), though I'll take pretty much anything over "FO" 4.

That would make for another good comparison between Fallout 1 and 2 versus Wasteland 1 and 2.

Honestly, I've played Wasteland back in 80's on C64 and though I liked it, it didn't wow me (I don't know, maybe I was too much into D&D back then or something - I should probably replay it). But for some reason FO1 hit all the right spots, and FO2 just solidified the experience (I find FO2 to be better game, but FO1 is still my personal favorite).

Wasteland 2 was good, but honestly, IMO, combination of world building, characters, story, humor and atmosphere (in no small part due to superb soundtrack) in FO1/2 stands quite above it.
