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.

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).

Even better, I love turn-based games. Obviously if it is used, meaning I have many options to choose from and the options are all meaningful. Fallout sounds like it.

Fallout 2 or Fallout New Vegas



Fallout 2 is easily my favorite. While the original had a bit more freedom it had a lot of issues that I think 2 ironed out. You just can't beat old school CRPG writing/mechanics.

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!

No prob! I hope you enjoy it a lot like I did.



Probably new vegas. I got caught in the hype of fallout 4, and it's not till you are done and sit and think about to realize how much petty time was wasted. Maybe it's the idea of getting somewhere exciting or the story getting somewhere that keeps you playing, or the the cheap habib of looting and collecting all these items, which don't lead anywhere significant, and the similarity of the side missions. The game is a great time waster/filler, but i can't think of moments of greatness, besides that terminator enemy. And the hours spent on building almost every camp, and defending.... The dlc's werent that good either. Fallout 5 better be a great evolution, in terms of story,  graphics, AI, physics, enemy types and the way they attack and respond/behave. But i doubt it. It will be a reskin on top of the old formula and same gameplay.

Gotta say I never liked fallout. Tried playing New vegas and fallout 3 but I think the game's just not for me. Never enjoyed 1st person RPG's adn honestly hated how buggy it felt. Same thing about most of Elder scrolls.



I've only played the first two. So I voted Wasteland 2.

*kidding*

I didn't vote.
