what is the issue that is stopping you from playing them, or check the threads below or on the other page

How can I get Fallout 2 using Steam? There is no "download" or "play" button on the page of the game...

my issue is not a technical one. I just need guidance on how to play these games.

You have to have an intrest for diologue and figuring the story out. With these kind of games you have to devote alot of hours to get to the ending so don't be in the "I need to beat this game to check a box mode." Be in a mood where you can soak in the atomshpere and have fun and role play a little bit. Develop the character, i.e. moral conduct and which groups you agree with. Idk it's not like other games where you get sucked in to super fun bright colorful gameplay. It's slow paced and takes longer to digest. But worth it imo

Yah these games have pretty old, but still in most aspects enjoyable gameplay.
My recommendation is to check out a let's play or use the fallout wiki, it's really helpful.

Recent change in copyright legal mumbo jumbo mean as of last week or the week before, you can no longer buy this game from steam or GOG. Google it if you'd like more factual information but your about a week late to the party D:

I believe Bethesda plan on bringing it back to steam but who knows when..

there are two ways to beat the game. first.. you create a char with a high int and speech ability.. this gives you the chance to avoid combat sometimes or open a questline.. second you create a good fighter with high agi and per/str. depends on what you prefer. meele or ranged combat

best is to meet in the middle so create a char with at least 4 chr and 6 int... i prefer ranged combat, so i guess max 6 str for the start and 6-7 per is good ... if you choose "gifted" trait you will get +1all.. but suffer -10skills... i personally like gifted

for a ranged char the second trait "fast shot" is best.

now you have to make it trough the temple first .. you can avoid all combats with the scorpions if you like ... in the first area the door have to be lockpicked by pressing s and then choose lockpick and pick the doors lock by clicking on it.

second area you take the explosive off the stash on your way to the door and activate it and walk in front of the door, then drop by holding right mb and swith to the drop icon

the next area you have to be cautious of traps.. if you walk grid by grid you can see them to walk around.. the exit is on the left side ... you have to fight hand to hand with the guy there or solve a speech check to avoid combat... for further guide you should look for a walktrough in the web

I can't believe it, I used to have both of the manuals for these games (the large thick notebook ones which were awesome) that came with the original retail games, but I lost both or something I wish I had them just because they were awesome.

It could be that this type of game just isn't for you.

Bethesda wanted Fallout 1, 2, and Tactics removed in December 2013, since they were owned by Interplay (bought out by Bethesda). This could possibly it. saed face.
