Not sure if you can really compare the two series by which is better. Sure, they both have a post apocalyptic setting, but Metro is solely a linear FPS while the Fallout series as a whole is an open world top down/third person/and first person RPG. It's like comparing Star Wars: Republic Commando with Mass Effect, while both in the same sci-fi genre, they are quite different in gameplay and mechanics

As @GUARDian said, its two very different games to compare.
Even in setting. Fallout has deserted America filled with retro-futuristic atributes, filled with 50's american culture, Metro, is about present time, filled with East-European\Post-Soviet\Russian atmosphere.
What by me? I found Metro (Only Metro 2033 The Last Refuge, not Last Light, not Redux Version) pretty depressing to me.
"It appears that the devastation we brought upon ourselves was complete; Heaven, Hell and Purgatory were atomized as well. So when a soul leaves the body it has nowhere to go, and must remain here, in the Metro. A harsh, but not undeserved atonement for our sins, wouldn't you agree?"

Fallout is just a really great roleplaying game and just too have goofy fun.
Metro series is just awsome because of the story and how Artyom's story grows in the 2 games. Also i really think that Metro is more of a survival and harder (In Fallout 4 you can take 500 stimpaks and in Metro just a few syringes.
Both are really great franchises and im actually hoping for more Metro games

Just like @GUARDian said they are both different games.
But for me, Metro wins, i love both games, but the Atmospherem lore, factions etc: is just 10x better for me, i always loved Metro and Fallout, but Metro is the game that introduced me into post apocalyptic games.

Like @"Fidller" said, fallout is a roleplaying game where you create your own character following his own story, even if you can't create a perfectly different story than other player. Metro is a more "closed" game telling a story. For me metro is better fallout for the ambiance (the oppression of the metro) and the fact that the game is more "realist" and propose a bigger challenge in higher difficulty (ranger hardcore)

Just as a lot of people have said, the two games are both great, but different from each other. Fallout gives you the chance to really make your own story, with a character that has very personal value. Even though Fallout 4, in my opinion, removed some key RPG elements, it's still very much an RPG. Metro is a very linear, very straight forward FPS, with a little customization options. I do love it's story, and it's ambiance, it's world, but it honestly has almost no replay value for me personally. The Fallout series has always been my favorite, and even though 4 kinda seems like a step back, I still love it. The only post apocalyptic game I've played that feels kinda close to what Fallout delivers, over all, is the STALKER series.
