I've bought a PC magazine and saw it's release. It looked so awesome so I had to buy it. Fallout ist one of the best RPGs that exist. As I waited for Fallout New Vegas, I've played it so many times. With mods it was so awesome cheers

I remember my brother borrowed Fallout 3 from his friend and played it all the time and it looked dumb to me...until I tried it. I fell beyond in love instantly and had so much fun playing it. I had so many hours put into that game on console and now have so many more on pc

I happened to be in a Walmart on a dark, stormy evening sometime in 2009 and lo and behold I saw a copy of this "Fallout 3" game on an xbox 360 shelf. I had no idea what it was or what I was going to get into, but it said the words "SALE" above. I had to get it. I popped it in the xbox and I was hooked once I heard the sweet tones of Liam Neeson's voice crooning.

First saw it when Todd Howard was at E3 presenting Fallout 3. Since it was a Bethesda game im like cool the people from Elder scrolls made it then i saw the gameplay and eagerly awaited its release. I ended up getting it on Christmas and loved it ever since.

I discovered Fallout when my brother bought Fallout 3. He made his guy look like wesker and gave me a deathclaw gauntlet (which I thought was actual tyrant hand) and I just started tearing everybody apart! I immediately fell in love with it and now I'm way older than first time I played it and I for the first time in my life, beat Fallout 3 without using my brother's save or making the difficulty on very easy. (please know I was young at the time) Then...New Vegas came out.. I roamed the wasteland with ncr armor and enclave remnants power armor and I loved it but not as much as 3 at that time! And then I got a PC and got F3, didn't know how to install mods I was scared then I said "fuck it" and then I enjoyed modding so much! And then when it came to graphics...My PC couldn't handle the ENB... THEN I bought a gtx 760 card and it doesn't fit in my desktop (keep in mind I ordered it online and waited like a month for it) I was soooo pissed..So it stopped me from playing Fallout because ENB looks so good! So that's my Fallout story!

My first time experiencing Fallout for the first time was when a friend brought a PS3 copy of Fallout 3 to my house and he and I had hilarious and amazing moments playing that game. Eventually, He traded his copy of Fallout 3 for my copy of homefront and it was the game I played it for about 3 to 4 months straight before getting DLC's and my own copy of FNV. From then on, I have had fun traveling the wasteland, and punching deathclaws in the face. Wink

I had heard of the older games, but hadn't played them (I wasn't really a fan of the isometric/overhead angle). However, when I read that Bethesda was making a third game with the same tech as Oblivion, I was definitely interested. It kind of fell off my radar though.

So when I saw FO3 on sale on Steam a few years ago, I snapped it up. I've played it nonstop ever since, with only small breaks when other major games (Skyrim, Inquisition, etc) come out.

That's awesome man:thumbsup: ! I do remember whenever I was intimidated by mods, but everyone always remember their first mod installation and I sure do. As for ENB, I'm not picky about graphics, but goodness do they make the games look amazing. My problem with them is I can't find a way to install them and I'm afraid that they would slow my frame rate down, but I hope I find a way to get it work.

I discovered Fallout when Fallout 3 was being advertised on TV. Got it for the 360 and now have both 3 and Vegas for PC, and have been in love with the series since.

After I got my first laptop I decided that I wanted a new game to play so I went to Walmart I believe and looked at their computer games. When I was looking I pretty much decided on either Fallout 3 GOTY or Ages of Empires both of which I had not heard anything about. When I was deciding between the two an employee happened by and started suggesting games, he was really trying to push me into getting Diablo 2, but eventually I decided on Fallout 3. When I got home and the game was installed I started playing and was hooked my brother even liked the game so much just from watching me play that he decided to go and buy it for the Xbox 360.

P.S. Yes I played the game on both the computer and the Xbox, don't really know why but I did.

My friend came over, and just told me to try the game since I liked Elder Scrolls.... and that is when my addiction started!

Yeah I remember the first time I installed a mod I had to have my brother help me install the NMM program closed eyes smile I got a crappy mod that just gives you stealth armor TongueTril And what do you mean can't find a way to install them? And if they do slow your frame rate down there should be a menu that lets you alter your ENB settings! Disable some stuff hm? And if you wanna know how to install an enb check out NcrVet's tutorial, very useful! And yes, an ENB makes the game godly amazing closed eyes smile no doubt about that! Now then..I must get a good video card!

Never played anything before Fallout 3. It randomly appeared in my Xbox 360 one day. Don't know how. Literally have no idea how it got there. But thank the gaming gods that it was given to me!

It was a long time ago. I think I was 14, or 15 years old. I've spotted info about Fallout 1 reading some PC magazine, there was a list and short review of best RPGs of all time, haha. Few days after I found Fallout Bundle (Fallout 1, Fallout 2, Fallout Tactics: Brotherhood of Steel) in local games store. It was a cracked F1 version with terrible translation by pirates themselves, but it was a great game, amazing gaming experience I will never forget. Fallout 2 was the same, but a lot bigger.=)
