Fallout 3 is an action role-playing open world video game developed by Bethesda Game Studios and published by Bethesda Softworks. The third major instalment in the Fallout series, it is the first game to be created by Bethesda since it bought the franchise from Interplay Entertainment.
The game marks a major shift in the series by using 3D graphics and real-time combat, replacing the 2D isometric graphics and turn-based combat of previous instalments. It was released worldwide in October 2008 for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360.
In a post apocalyptic world, a man/woman leaves the protection of the vault he/she was raised in to search for his/her missing father. He/She finds the world quite different from the one he/she experienced in the vault.
His/Her experiences grow him/her physically, mentally, psychologically and morally. You ARE that man/woman, every action you take changes the world around you for good or evil. Play as a good guy/gal, an opportunist, a paragon or a villain.
The choice is yours. There are multiple side quests and two or three “outlaw” radio stations, plus the “Officially recognized” radio station of the “Enclave”. Any actions you take are talked about on the outlaw stations, for good or for evil.
This is the world as it might have been if the US got nuked. You choose your alliance, you choose your fate, you make your future. The choice is yours.
This is the worthy successor of Elder Scrolls: Oblivion (same company, at least one of the voices is the same! ) Featuring superb graphics, visceral violence, gratuitous profanity, child endangerment, plots and sub-plots and even a chance to meet “The president”.
You get to explore Raven Rock, the home of the “President” himself, Little Lamplight, a town of children ONLY, the adjoining town of BIG TOWN where the Lamplighter’s go when they become adults. The town of Megaton, complete with a bomb worshipping cult (a homage to “Beneath the Planet of the Apes”)
The “Luxurious” high rise of Threepenny tower (No Ghouls allowed — although you MAY be able to change that situation! ). You’ll meet misguided hero and villainess (respectively ) “The Mechanist” and the “ANTagonizer” (She’s a piece of work, trust me! ).
You get to save a town from Giant Ants (A homage to “THEM!”) if you wish! Rescue slaves, or join the slavers for profit. The choice is yours!
