First things first...Fallout 3 can be frustrating as can be to get running. That being said, it only requires a couple of easy to find mods to make it run quite well (mods that you're going to want to use anyway). So those who are new to PC gaming may want to be aware that it will require a bit of...finessing...to get it running great. Once you get things running smoothly...you're in for one of the greatest gaming experiences of all time. It is simply an amazing game. Gameplay is really well done, at first I wasn't too thrilled by the VATS system but it soon began to shine and I now love it. Graphically the game looks quite good (with some help from mods), especially given the age of the title. The storyline is just phenomenal. Ranks right up there with the best RPG storylines. Overall, the only real gripe I have, and the REASON FOR THE SCORE BEING SLIGHTLY LOWER THAN I WANT TO GIVE IT, is that it does require some easily found mods to run smoothly (off the top of my head I think FOMM, FOSE & CASM were the main necessities, TONS more options depending on your preferences for the game as well). If you enjoy FPS/RPG hybrids, this one stands near the top of the heap. A definite must-play in my opinion.
Fallout 3 is a great game. It's a post apocalyptic Washington DC in which you see the aftereffects of nuclear war. You see how people are surviving. You see what radiation has done to wildlife and humans. The graphics were solid for the time, although the gunplay is poor and VATS is an absolute must. Gear condition, while a good idea, degrades far too quickly. You find yourself constantly trying to repair gear from the smallest of skirmishes with raiders. The main story was forgettable. The Brotherhood of Steel, however, was a fun part. Having to get through 80% of the game to unlock power armor was not fun, however. The DLC content is fairly good, although BGS still suffers to tell a compelling story. I'd recommend this game, but you may as well play Fallout 4 at this point.
Fallout 3 is one of those games that after years of doing what you thought was everything in the game you can start playing it again and run into things you didn't ever come across before, which then leads you on a path to discovering even more things that you didn't know were in the game. It is just such a deep world with so much to do and such a great level of immersion that once you start playing again you always get sucked right back in. If you haven't experienced this game before or haven't played through all of the different DLC, definitely pick this up, it is a classic for a reason. It's that good.
This is an excellent game for those of us just looking to melt into the couch and forget life for a week or two. The gameplay is great, and you experience a level of freedom in the game that you won't experience anywhere else. Truly a unique experience. My only problem with it is the storyline is a bit peculiar, however it is very gripping and I highly recommend this game to anyone.
Fallout 3 puts you in the shoes of a vault dweller cast out into the wasteland that was DC, to find your father and to unwittingly enter into the middle of a brewing conflict. Whereas New Vegas is a populated area that feels alive, this is a wasteland - and you can go ages without seeing a friendly face - though the unfriendly always happen to pop up! Weapons are a bit more limited than New Vegas, though mods can help bolster your arsenal. You feel more like you are the character than in New Vegas though - and the sense of danger is ever present. Like it's "not really a sequel" in New Vegas, bugs can disrupt your gaming, which is what holds it back from being closer to a 100% experience
