I remember watching a bunch of "Top 10" videos online and Fallout 3 was on a lot of those lists. At the time I was REALLY into post-apocalyptic scenarios (and still am; looking forward to Fallout 4) and it looked like my cup of tea. I ordered it online and played it religiously. Right when I got bored of it, I discovered modding and, well, my PS3 has been collecting layers of dust lol

I first discovered fallout when I was in high school but it was fallout 3 I never played the others or herd of them so it was all new to me, so on with the story I would go down to the eb games close to my school which is GameStop to you Americans and they had a sale on and the game was pretty cheap I cant remember the price but i was kind of interest in buying it and kind of not but I got it any way, got home installed it and I got hooked on it I played the game with out any mods because I didn't even know that mods existed, but when I found out about mods it just made the game more enjoyable and became a fan boy of the fallout series.

I discovered Fallout when I noticed my older cousin was playing fallout 2, I was interested in the game but it was too difficult for me so I gave up. I started getting into Fallout when 3 came out in 7008 and I immediately loved it, I played the game to death discovering all locations and doing all quest then I went back to Fallout 1 and 2 as my cousin still had them. I realised how much I missed out on by not playing fallout 1 and 2 and then I got Fallout new vegas and played that for a while but once I finished the game without DLC I was bored and sold it but three years later I got into modding and I absolutely loved it.

I discovered fallout in 2 year of my high school,right after fallout 3 came out,and when my friend gave me 10 random games and fallout 3 was among them. I try it and i fell in love instantly. I had some cheap computer and graphics was pretty awesome, even tho i played without any mods and i had like 5 CTD per hour, i played it a lot. And then i remember i was talking with one friend in my local gaming cafe and he told me he always wanted to play Fallout 3 but he didn't have the game so i gave it to him and we later on discovered Nexus and whole modding community, and then the real fun began. The rest is history

Yeah I bought a gaming mag for 3$ and I got 3 cd's, two full games and some demo's.
Read the magazine, put the cd case on a shelf, some months later I rediscovered it, installed Fallout, got weirded out, uninstalled Fallout, said its stupid, months later got Fallout 2, fell in love, forever ashamed I said FO1 is stupid.
I didnt know absolutely anything about the game when I started playing AND at that time my english sucked. Now... Fallout for life.

I was playing oblivion at the time, I had just finished the main quest and most of the sidequests again
when I wondered to myself if their was a game that had the same strong gameplay combined with the same modding compatibility. as per use I started looking for all the other games that bethesda had created, I had already played morrowwind but I had never heard of fallout 3. I figured why not? It had great reviews, an interesting idea and allot of lore + even then there was a great modding community.
Well I played it and fell in love with the series, playing all of the old games and when new vegas came out I played it immediatly. I've been hooked ever since.

Originally I saw the F3 trailer and thought "Oh great, another mech FPS". I didn't realize it was as flexible and moddable as it is. Then I obtained Morrowind, then Oblivion, then I began hearing that FO was essentially Elder Scrolls, set in the future. Once I found out my Oblivion install was ruined due to too many overlapping mods, and not knowing how to undo it all, I needed a new playground. And Fallout fitted it. I've never looked back since, apart from when I gave up on F3 due to repeated crashing. But NV tempted me back, with it's stable engine. That was 3-4 years ago.

I remember me and my friends gathering round a gaming magazine in school when we were ten, looking at the front cover, showing the awesome-looking Brotherhood of Steel armour from this 'new' sci-fi game coming from the makers of the legendary Oblivion.

I'd heard the name before, didn't know anything about it, didn't know it was Bethesda. The guys at the store where I picked up my mint copy of Skyrim on release day highly recommended Fallout, if I liked Bethesda RPGs.

Sooooo, I'm checking it out as soon as my kid gets back home- she nabbed the game when it came in the mail before I could!

I had been playing Oblivion for quite awhile and a friend of mine told me about Fallout 3 (This was before I got into modding). I borrowed it, fell in love and bought my own copy the next day. New Vegas was a pre-order and I bought Wasteland and the original fallout games in a Steam sale last year

It shames me to say this, but I never got the drive to play the first two Fallout games. I was, however fortunate enough to try out Bethesda's Fallout 3. I remember that day clearly; 2011, neighbor's house, various snacks. We played till the the following morning. In as little as three days, this became a weekly activity for us.

As time passed and with the release of New Vegas, I became excessively interested behind the story. Upon countless research, I eventually discovered the Nexus! And that concludes my revelation with Fallout.

After playing Morrowind and Oblivion I felt anything Bethesda crafted would turn to gold. So I gave it a try and instantly fell in love and love the fallout universe more so than The Elder Scrolls!

I just happen to see Fallout 3 at EB Games on sale, looked good. Unfortunately back then, I didn't know jack about modding or optimizing and was playing it on Windows 7, so it took me days to figure out what was wrong with it

I was either in fifth or sixth grade a few years back, and I recently got my Xbox 360. I saw the video of Bethesda premiering Fallout 3 at E3, and I was instantly sold. I definitely wasn't disappointed when I bought it.

Well , I guess nobody from Poland ,bloody awesome country , is registered . I saw Fallout 3 form "Bungo21" channel . I've thought "Holy moly! This game is awesome Indeed !" So I waited for Christmas ,installed it and ... lose life . Then I heard of F:NV , which was supposed to be " More Fallout 3 but with atmosphere from older fallouts . "And this game just took my life from me forever , far ,far away . ..
