Originally posted by calloused:Fallout 1 is a fantastic game, it really gives you a sense of desolation as civilization is struggling to rebuild, its much smaller than 2 but it has rich content, and you will learn to instantly go on a murderfest as soon as anyone hurts dear sweet Dogmeat. Also, watch out for Ian, he is a ♥♥♥♥.Fallout 2 though, is amazing, you have a larger world to explore, more places to visit, more people to interact with, more stuff to do and more depth to your consequences. If you choose to be a slaver, expect it to alter the majority of your interactions with common folk.The choice of saving or damning a town is more pronounced, it shapes every how that town interacts with you. Blow up the reactor in Gecko? Their neighbor to the south, Vault City, will banish you. Become a Hubologist, or Scientologist as its a very thinly veiled reference, it will colour how that town perceives you and what you can do. Want a crack at a genuine military base staffed by trained troopers with high quality weapons? You got it.Think you got the moxy to become the heavyweight champ of north California? You can try.Pornstar? Yup.Drug dealer? Certainly.Wider variety of NPCs to recruit, each with individual strengths and weakness, including a bad ticker? Yup.Car? Hell yes.Storyline thats effected by your stats? You got it. The idiot playthrough is great fun.Fallout 2 is the best in the series and the story is so well written, that when Bethesda made 3, they ripped the whole story off with some small changes.
