October 31, 2008. Finally, after more than 10 years I would be able to continue my adventures in my most beloved franchise ever 'Fallout' (I did not count Fallout Tactics, which I also loved).
I was sceptical at first, since this would be first Fallout game made by Bethesda. Like others, I did not just want a 'Oblivion with guns', also being on the East-Coast would feel differently, compared to the other games in the series.
Right from the start the hand of Bethesda was clearly visible. Starting the game as a baby/toddler/teenager was probably not what Black Isle would've done. Also the storytelling is a bit more childish and immature (like in Oblivion). The story was praised by many and even got an award for best story that year. In my opinion, the story(telling) is one of the worst parts about the game. If you have played Fallout 1 and 2, you will notice the story of Fallout 3 is simply Fallout 1 & 2's story put together. There are also weird locations/quests and multiple things that do not really add up to the Fallout lore.
Aside from the story, Bethesda still did manage to create a beautifully post-apocalyptic world and kept the Fallout feeling mostly throughout the game. Graphically, the game has aged but it's still well playable.
The thing I love most about Fallout 3 is just wandering around the Capital Wasteland and find new locations, items/weapons/armor and/or easter eggs. Often you will enounter various enemies and npc's which either want to help you or destroy you.
Gameplay is fun aswell. Killing enemies feels satisfying, there are tons of weapons for you play around with, quests to finish, secret locations.... there's just too much for me to write down. simply put, Fallout 3 will most likely enjoy you for hundreds of hours and is a must-have for every RPG-lover.
