Fallout 3 and New Vegas going neck to neck. New Vegas with mods for me.

Fallout 1 is my favorite, though Fallout 2 is better game and arguably RPG with one of the best (if not best) role playing in history of video game RPGs (at least for those who know what actual pen&paper role playing is).

Bethesda's Fallouts miss so many things that makes Fallout what it is that it's hard for me to even call them that, though FO3 was decent game on its own and Obsidian's FO:NV had much more of the originals' feel to it, though not quite up there with them.

3 is my most favorite, with New Vegas, being a close second.

I'm in the minority since I started playing with the original Fallout (1). To me, it's the best RPG ever made. Your choices have weight, it has tons and tons of quests and adventures on its world (which isn't huge by today's standards but still feels large enough). The story is excellent, the ending is perhaps the most memorable ending to a video game I've ever experienced aside from MGS1 and FFVII. Oh also, the gameplay is freaking great.

If you read this and haven't played it just cause it's old or because it isn't an FPS, please give it a chance. It's Magnificent with a capital M!

The original two Fallouts look like isometric pause based RPGs, similar to Baldur's Gate. Ifreaking love that gameplay, much more than shooters. So I might give it a try. I see it is available on GOG. As I have an endless backlog, I wait for a sale, but I added it to the wishlist. Thanks for the suggestion.

I liked Fallout 1 and 2 when I played them in early 2000s but today they feel too hollow for me, I don't know if it's the lack of voice acting or something else.

I played 3, 4 and New Vegas, and F3 is for me easy best Fallout game that I played, great atmosphere and great pacing.



Every Fallout game after 2 shouldn’t be allowed to be called Fallout.

I loved Fallout 1 to death, but I voted 2 here because it was the same as 1 but with more content (even if the freshness of 1 was gone when 2 rolled out).



Fallout NV, it felt like a proper progression of what the franchise could have been not that watered down experience Bethesda gave us,



"Wheel me out to the curb for garbage day"

"The shortest and fastest route, straight ahead, In a straight line"

I haven't played any other Fallout games, only New Vegas 



There goes my last fuck

They are fully turned-based, not real-time with optional pauses on different triggers like BGs. If you like classic CRPGs with lot of role playing options, do try them, arguably nothing beats them at that till this very day (especially FO2).

That's most likely true - even NV, made by some of original crew, can't hold the candle to first 2 games. As for Bethesda...well, they at least tried with FO3, it's just they don't know how to make better game than reskinned TES and were pretty much completely oblivious of what makes first 2 Fallouts great. Of course, let's not talk about FO4 at all, that's not even RPG to start with, let alone Fallout.
