As soon as you enter the world of Fallout, you will know something is awry. Whether it is the barren wasteland or mutated creatures, it soon becomes apparent that you are living in a world gone wrong. Specifically, Fallout takes place after a nuclear apocalypse has devastated much of the world and exists in an alternative timeline during the twenty second century. Fallout is an open world role-playing game, where you assume the life of a person who has survived the nuclear devastation and begin your trek across the vast expanses of harsh, yet hauntingly beautiful, landscapes of North America. You are given various weapons to combat the horrors created by the Nukes, whether they are creatures or fellow desperate survivors. You can specialize in various types of combat skills, from crushing monsters with pipes, to blowing them apart with rockets. Yet, Fallout is not all about killing and maiming your way across the state (unless you want it to be!). That is one of the most unique and wonderful aspects of this game; you can go where you want, talk to whoever you want, and kill anyone you want. Or not. You can help rebuild small parts of the aforementioned devastated society, perform tasks for needy in game characters, and rescue lost and injured travellers. This game is all about the choices you make and the impact that they have on the crumbling world. You are assigned karma values for the deeds you perform. You get karma for being helpful, and you lose karma for doing bad things. This affects how other people view and interact with you, and serves to give you the game ending that you deserve.
Fallout has always been on the cutting edge of graphical design, and has given gamers the best possible view of a thoroughly destroyed world. It is easy to become immersed in the world, and lose yourself in the expanses of cities, sewers, and wastelands. Aside from being one of the most popular modern RPGs, the expansions make the game truly epic as you explore other areas of North America. Overall, this game is more than a must own, and you should consider spending the several days needed to explore this vast, engaging game.Games like Fallout are shown below.
