This game is a masterpiece and should be played by everyone especially the GOTY version as the DLC is also excellent.

(Yup, 2008, not 2009 as stated on this page)
Bethesda Gam Studios are responsible for some of my favourite games ever; Oblivion, Skyrim and, of course, Fallout 3. This was my first experience in the Fallout universe after I hadn't played the original (and very different) games.
Fallout 3 is a first-person shooter set in the post-apocalyptic Washington DC. The large map is filled with real-world monuments which have been affected by the war, and the dark post-apocalyptic life is apparent on every corner.
While the game is a few years old now, it is still very playable and this version includes the 4 DLC packs, most of which are great. The game features a lot in terms of gameplay time and is filled with dark humour which will certainly make you laugh a few times.
If you haven't played this yet, I can't recommend it enough. I'd also suggest buying Fallout: New Vegas (developed by Obsidian, but using the same engine and some of the same assets) when you've finished with Fallout 3. I'm very excited to see what Bethesda have up their sleeves next, and I'm keeping my fingers crossed for it to be a new Fallout game.
