What brings you to FO3, F2, F1, even BOS? I remember my first time seeing fallout. My brother had a laptop. Playing fallout 3 with mods... Ah... i remember his sniper mod he had... anyways, after that, a few years later, we got a ps3. My brother got NV for PS3. I made a seperate account to play fallout, and my brother told me alot about it. One year later, got my pc. I fell in love. I just started modding FO3, and i haven't stopped playing. What's your story, wastelanders?
Oh, and sorry if i haven't been so active. School is long, but i still devote my time. Even if it's 5 minutes, i can't just leave you guys behind.

It's the mods for FO3 and NV that dragged me to start playing it on PC. I finished FO3 on my Xbox 360 and I saw some mod showcases and I decided to play it on PC and tried the mods. My whole experience definitely changed when I switched.
But not only the mods, I like the concept of an RPG and open-world style set in a post-apocalyptic world. You could argue the Elder Scroll series, but I'm not really a fan of the fantasy, medieval type of game. (Don't get me wrong, I've played Morrowind and Skyrim and they were very good games.)

Video games are like wine, you get a taste and it's like this is good. You put it down and come back a few months or even years later and taste it again and its like "ah this is better than I remember". Lol I don't know if that analogy is perfect but it's the way I see games anyhow. Fallout 3 is by far one of my favorite games of all times (modded of course). I don't know why I always find myself going back to It no matter how many times I play it.

Who doesn't want to be a hero/villain in a post apocalyptic wasteland where there are no rules. You can be savior or rule the masses with fear of a shot to the face. Modding another good reason we come back to fallout / elder scrolls. It makes an old game fresh again no matter how old it is.

I had FO3 and FNV on xbox 360 before i had them on pc.
When i was on youtube, i saw some FO3 armours i've never seen before, I thought they were really neat.. they were mods. I was jealous instantly, so i went out and built my own gaming pc just for FO3 and FNV.. mods man.

Well said, mods always keep games fresh, more devolpers should support it, that's what got me into PC gaming in the first place, I got jealous of the mods people were using on GTA san andreas and picked my self up a copy, once I was running around San Andreas killing people with lighsabres I couldnt go back

Started with Fallout 3 on Xbox 360. Played it forever like it was going out of style. In fact, I played it so much that I ended up having to buy another disc because my original cracked. I can't say how many hours I've played Fallout 3; I may or may not have passed my logged hours for New Vegas, which is close to 700.
Once I learned how to mod Fallout 3 on PC, I went crazy. Every possible mod I could get my hands on, I installed. Once I heard New Vegas was releasing, I installed mods for it, too. Can't say that I remember whether or not I installed mods before or after I beat the game.

I enjoy the interactivity, I like being able to go through a story and actually have a part in it. All the choices in games like Fallout 3 and Mass Effect or Dragon Age, I LOVE games like this. They may all reach the same destination but I love being able to shape or change the journey!
With movies and TV you just sit there and stare, you have no choice or way to interact with anything. Its like being dragged by a car, versus steering the car (gaming).
And in the case of PC games, I love the moddability. Its very rewarding to think... I wish I could play Fallout as Claire from Resident evil! Or that I could use Isabela's armor in Skyrim. And with some reading up and learning, I can do those things. That is very very fun. I've modded almost 20GBs of stuff into my personal Fallout 3, everything from Metroid to World of Warcraft to Mass Effect and Dragon Age. It has become my ultimate sandbox of stuff I love.

First of all, I'm playing for inspiration or to lose myself for a while, because sometimes I want to live as someone else, someone with other race, gender, or appearance. Want to forget all the problems and people in my life. And everything seems more colorful there, on the other side of the screen. Yet there are not that many games which actually make me say: I love them. I hate lots of games which are quite popular and get people's love, such as Bioshock, Assassin's Creed and others. It's very hard to find a game which will fit my tastes. I'm extremely fastidious.

My friend kept talking about fallout, and I always saw him in xbox live parties just playing fallout. He would play it for hours on end, and I thought that if he could play a game that long, he really liked it. So I stopped my MW2 grind and picked up fallout NV. It was kinda cool at first, but I lost interest in it for about a half year. Then I decided to give it a try again, and I was immediately sucked into the game by the story line, unique weapons, and all the things you could do. Then I heard you could mod the game on PC, adding in more weapons and interesting things, so I bought it on PC with all the dlc. And because of the mods, world exploration, and weapons, I can spend all day playing fallout and not doing anything else.

Several things lure me to the Fallout series of games. Partly the upending of the status quo, the reaction of npcs to the harshness of reality, and a pneumatic fist that pulverizes skulls. I love the sci fi aspects here and there.

I was exposed to Fallout 3 by my daughter when she came home from college one summer and played it on her console. I watched her play for several hours and then went out and bought Fallout 3 GOTY. I loaded it onto my PC and have been playing ever since. Stumbled onto a mod site one day that had a couple of Fallout 3 mods on it and downloaded them. Started to search out other mod sites and eventually found F3U. Never got around to asking for mod access. Now I'm here to stay. I only play a couple of games and Fallout just appeals to me on several levels. I like the story line and environment. I like the mods and the ability to explore. I particularly like the game as it is not a "take over the world and rule it" as that becomes boring. My daughter showed me New Vegas another summer, but it did not have the same level of appeal to me that Fallout 3 did. I am envious of some of the New Vegas mods that I cannot use as I am playing Fallout 3. I guess there is a price for everything. The mods keep me in Fallout 3 as I like the environment and the new content. Just my Opinion!!!! Cheers!!! V/R MistTiger

What got me into fallout was the freedom of choice and exploring the wastelands. Also the mods helped me get into fallout as well

what brought me to the horrible wasteland of fallout 3 and the hopeful wasteland society of fallout new vegas was the freedom of choice making stories that no one else could have and then the mods just opened a whole new world for me

I don't even know where to start, I think my brother bought it when it came out and I started to play it too. Began with god mode and every other cheat and started to like it more and more. The game has a incredible story and the world really feels how it should feel, then I found mods and it really started!
Now I am gaming on an incredible looking AND feeling Fallout New Vegas with TTW and a lot more mods.
Because all those mods I can really get into this game and into the story. What I love the most is the feeling you get when you see some of the skeletons and how their positions, poses and the items scattered around them tell a story. A story that doesn't exist but you can make it up yourself!
All those small details make this game for me!
You're in the danger-zone!

I originally bought Fallout on my 360 and fell in love with it. I must have done over 20 replays just to see all there is. When I found out I could get mods I pirated it (whoops) and eventually loved it so much I bought it! Even thought most of the time I seem to be tackling errors I still play it all the time!

Escape into a world where your wits bear more weight or your continued existence than in this world.
