Just buy it; I can’t honestly offer you any more appropriate advice regarding this game. Far too rarely in my video gaming ‘career’ have I come across a game which exhibits the perfection that you will find in this title. This game literally has nearly everything a person could want in a piece of entertainment media, but we’ll get to that in a moment.
In Fallout 3, you are ‘the vault dweller’ – a character of your making who will have the race, sex, and appearance of your choice. The year is 2277, two hundred years after a nuclear war between the United States and China has ravaged the entire world. A few families managed to buy their way into underground fallout shelters, or vaults. Your character is a descendant of these fortunate few.
