Let's find out what you guys think! Which one was the best? Feel free to explain your decision here :) For me it was Fallout 2. It had a great story, great sandbox world, many side quests that kept you engaged for months! There were lots of community sites blooming on internet at the time - at least Polish ones. Fallout Bible came out -- and that was the most awesome thing, it gave A LOT of background to the games, it was a must have for any fan. It was generally great time to get sucked into Fallout Universe. Fallout 1 was just as great I think, and I generally put them both at the 1st place exequo, but UI was better in F2 - hence my decision to vote for it. Fallout Tactics - it wasn't TOO bad, but it generally was a tactical game more than RPG... Fallout 3 and FNV are totally differeny story. They are great, don't get me wrong, I do like them a lot, but nostalgia wins :) In general - Fallout universe is one of my favourite video game universes ever!

I've only played maybe 8-16 hrs of Fallout 3. Last I heard there were some issues with Fallout 3 and Windows 8. Not sure if there are now workarounds for that. If there are, it might be a good article to write for these forums. I've also only played maybe about 4 hrs of Fallout:NV...so you could probably put in the never played category. lol

I own FO3 and FNV but never played either one. Got them near free on Steam sale. One day perhaps. Doesn't have the same draw as Skyrim.

I've only played Fallout 3 and Fallout: New Vegas. I enjoyed both of them immensely though I would give the edge to Fallout 3.

Glad I'm not the only one that does this! :turned: I have several games I got for free or super cheap that I haven't played yet (Mass Effect 3, Torchlight, Amnesia: The Dark Descent). Still have yet to even finish Mass Effect 2 even though I LOVE those games. Spend all my free time here.

For me Fallout/Fallout2 were the best since they mixed a good story line with humor and interesting character development. I liked Fallout 3 and Fallout NV also, but they are quite different. While I have played those, I also have a number of inexpensive games I've bought on Steam sales (and a few other sites with older games) that are still waiting for me to play them.

I have a bunch of humble bundle games that I've never even installed. I even got Dishonored in the last Steam Sale and still haven't managed to play it. The key I think is to spend a few minutes forums, then game for an hour, then come back.

Unfortunately, my role here requires a little more time than that. There's a lot to do. I have a notepad with notes filling half a page of things that need to be done. lol

I wish I was down to 70 games. I'm sitting at 299 games, I think more than half I haven't played :(

EDIT: According to this (http://steamdb.info/...tor&currency=us) I have 119 unplayed games. Though I believe the figure includes DLC as well.

I'm really surprised more STEP members haven't jumped on the FO3/FNV experience. There is a vibrant modding community with lots of cross-over from TES3/4/5. I was very thankful for the FNV mod guide by EssArrBee http://wiki.step-pro...FalloutNewVegas I used that as a foundation and then scaled it up to 227 mod packages using WryeFlash/BAIN to manage it (not a MO fan). I've added ewi65's E enb for FNV and look very forward to a hardcore (meaning the vanilla hardcore option which has realistic needs built in) playthrough kicking off this weekend.

I'm not really a fan of post Apocalypse style games... just swords, staves, and bows. :) Sent from my XT907 using Tapatalk

I loved fallout 3 (actually played it completely vanilla since I wasn't modding things at that point). I own the other games but have yet to play them yet. I love the post apocalyptic theme and will likely build a nice mod load out when I begin them.
