Fallout 3 is definitely the game being smashed the most by the butthurt community members for a while.

Let's show it some love.

I mean,FO3 certainly isn't a bad game. Not by a long shot. But I wouldn't call it the best game in my opinion. I liked the gameplay and the fact that it renewed Fallout to a more modern demographic,and it really deserves respect for that. I'm also nostalgic for it because it was the first true rpg I played and what got me into rpg's in the first place. And the worldspace certainly is interesting and probably the best out of the modern games so far. Unfortunately for it,though,I always care more the story and characters. 3's story left me overall unmoved and the characters were rather dull save a few quirky and genuinely interesting npc's( Moira Brown was pretty funny). But some of the more important characters struck me as rather one dimensional and boring. The Enclave were straight up bad guys with no really redeeming characteristics. The BOS were the literal knights in shining armor. Sure they treated outsiders with disdain,but they still fought for them. My favorite faction was the Outcasta,l and I really wished that they played a bigger role in the game. Eh,well that's two cents on the matter. If you enjoyed it,more power to you. I'm just a biased cunt with a knack for interesting story. Feel free to tell me I'm wrong if you wish.

I thoroughly enjoyed Fallout 3. It was the first fallout game I ever played and it completely blew my mind. My first overall RPG was Oblivion and I loved it, but when I started Fallout 3 I didn't want it to end. I completed every side quest and explored every location. I even worked out how to max out your special and stats in the game without cheating.

Fallout 3 is also the only game to date so far where after beating it I immediately started a new game as an evil character. I've played games with morality systems in them, but FO3 is the only one where I played the game through as an evil character. Never done that before or since.

New Vegas and FO4 both have something going for them, but FO3 will always hold a special place in my heart.

Against my better judgement, because I find these very subjective discussions (in other words everyone has an opinion just like everyone has a rear port), I did want to show some love for FO3. I very much enjoyed it and not just because it was the first game I totally committed to fully modded. I did cut my modding teeth on that game and learn as much from my failure as the success.

I liked the Fallout world it introduced to me along with the dystopian survival theme. It showed human nature at it's basic level (which usually isn't very pretty) and in some cases at a higher level. You had a choice to play either or anything in between. Compared to newer games the graphics weren't quite there, but depending on the mods you used could be improved dramatically. I still have it installed on an external drive and I'm sure I will play it again.

As to the best? I'll leave that to others.

Is this thread a safe space for FO3 fans?

What's so bad about being a FO3 fan? Many FO3 fans are also NV or 4 fans too.

NGL, the you not being the main character kinded ruined it for me, (also I personally do not like the dlcs, especially the "get the good ending" one.)

This poll is very condescending. Bethesda Game Studios hasn't been very good with their stories since Oblivion, and half of the questlines in that were pretty bad, story-wise. I'd say the worldbuilding is their highlight, and the "adventure". I mean, Harold comes to mind, but there's not much story there, just some fun nod to a classic character and allowing him to die for something new to take ove-

WAIT A MINUTE.

Not really, it's pretty awful. I would love to say it's the worst one but Brotherhood of Steel exists.

@Corvo Nothing bad, I never implied that it was bad. I don't associate "Safe spaces" with bad or arrogant people, they're just p[laces where people can avoid negativity for a few minutes. So I wanted to know before giving my 2 cents and possibly ruining it and causing more grief than needed.

tfw I woke up this morning, and logged on to find I have no taste lol!

Nah Fallout 3 is alright, I think Bethesda genuinely made a good effort and though it isn't quite like the originals in the way NV is, it hits the mark on some other elements, such as the lonely, dead atmosphere and environment, the random encounters and one thing it does better than the other Fallout games is the environmental storytelling.

Also remember lads to keep it calm, cool and be excellent to each other. Thumbs Up

It's been so long since I've played FO3 but i have to show some love. A friend left it at my house and basically begged me to try it, even though I had no interest. I did eventually and still remember the moments that hooked me. I had no idea what bethesda or fallout was, so i had no expectations. The vault intro was interesting but the special points and character customization had me intrigued. For someone completely unfamiliar with the mechanics, the game was hard at first. But then i finally escaped the vault. It was my first open world game, and no gaming experience I've had has compared to that first time exploring the Capital Wasteland. They just did a good job making it feel like it's own actual place.

It would be different to play now that I'm a "bethesda game veteran". I know a lot of people have a lot to say about a "real fallout game" and stuff like that, but i happen to appreciate bethesda and what they've done with fallout. Sure it's much more commercialized at this point, but i do think they could have done a lot worse in that respect by this point.

FO3 is my favorite game in the series, but I can't agree. 'Best' is just... Blegh, I'd give it the same annoyed response as 'FNV is the best fallout game' or anything similar. There isn't really a best title, they all fail and succeed in their own ways.

Now, why is Fallout 3 my favorite? TONE. Tone, tone, tone. And atmosphere I suppose, but they're largely the same thing in this case. But right, what do I mean? Well let me compare it to the darling of the series, New Vegas -

Personally, on reflection? I've come around to the idea that I didn't really prefer New Vegas's whole premise over 3's, I'd much rather take a dark, depressing apocalypse that bleeds tales of survival while making fun of itself in the same breath in comparison to New Vegas's almost contrived level of political intrigue and militarism. New Vegas just came across too... Well... Too civilized for my liking.

Whereas I felt Fallout 3 nailed the right balance between having a wasteland that was too civilized and too... Well, dead.

Fallout 3 was the very the game that brought me into the fold, however, I cannot agree that it's the "best" Fallout game. To incorporating invigorating detail would be too long, but I will say this, I love the game because it introduced to Vegas which is why I always play between the two.

As IIHawkerII above describes, I like Fallout 3 based on its tone of being a good post-apocalyptic game. Fallout New Vegas really peaked my interest more because of the enhanced role-playing mechanic, that's what really hooked me. I wasn't really into the whole western vibe if Fallout 3 had some of the gameplay elements that Fallout New Vegas had then Fallout 3 would win it for me.

In conclusion, BOTH GREAT GAMES Thumbs Up

But but... Fallout: Brotherhood of Steel had a good story line with innovative gameplay mechanics along with polished graphics.

Fallout: Brotherhood of Steel is the first fallout game to have coop, done 14 years before fallout 76 and as such is the best fallout.
