Why should I bother playing Fallout 3?
Fallout 3 is the third game of the titular RPG franchise. The series takes place in a post-apocalyptic world ravaged by nuclear bombs; a lucky few who scrambled to underground shelters for safety were the only ones to survive. Unless you count those who became mutated monsters wandering the wasteland above as survivors.
Fallout 3, set in the aftermath of the disaster, won the IGN’s 2008 Overall Game of the Year Award, among other honours. Fallout 3: Game of the Year Edition includes the base game and all five of its expansions, including Operation: Anchorage, The Pitt, Broken Steel, Point Lookout, and Mothership Zeta.
