I started with Fallout 3. I'm not ashamed or anything this game came out before I even knew how to play video games. I still love Fallout 3 and the world Bethesda crafted for it. I've replayed it so much I know it like the back of my hand. Obviously being that there was a number 3 at the end of the title it got in my head to wonder "What were the past games like? Fallout 3 has introduced me to a fantastic world and I want to see where it started!" Opun looking at screenshots I remember thinking "Wow... these games look old and crappy". However as time went on I actually played Half Life 1 for the first time which really open my naive eyes to the idea that "Hey! Just because it's old looking doesn't mean it sucks!" So I looked the games up again and decided on getting Fallout 2 over 1 as it said there was no time limit to 2.
I can now say that I think Fallout 2 (and 1 respectively) is a far superiour game to Fallout 3. It's amazing how a game where many of the character sprites look the same and the world it self is clearly just 2D with an isometric view could get me so immersed. Being able to place plastic explosive at the foot of a door, set a timer, then run like hell to watch it explode is just one of many things that made me fall in love with this game. While the gore and graphics of Fallout 3 are awesome being in a gunfight with raiders in Fallout 2 is even cooler. I've had a raider aim for my head only to miss and hit the other raider coming up behind me.
Fallout 2 is one of the few games that truly made me feel like a Wastleland Vigilante, like Mad Max and Clint Eastwood in one person. I did a mission for a town where I inspected a haunted farm only to find it inhabited by friendly ghouls. When I came back to the town the mayor told me if I didn't find one of their townfolks who had gone missing at the farm they would kill all the ghouls. When I couldn't find him I came back only to find that the mayor had really done it. He really killed all those innocents. So I shot him. I've never been so pissed at a fictional character in my life but unlike in a book or a movie I actually got to decide his fate and I decided his time was up.
My hope is that Fallout 4 will look back at some of these games and really try to implement some of the amazing player freedoms that this game allowed. If Fallout 4 ended up being and amazing 3d representation of this game my life would complete.
