I did every side quest that I came across from speaking to everyone in every town I was in from the main quest, but I didn't just go wandering around aimlessly looking for every town. I started the game on Jan 17, so a little over 2 weeks is a pretty long time to occupy me with a game. I played 2-4 hrs pretty much every day except for maybe 2 of the days. Overall the game was a lot of fun, but the ending itself was disappointing (SPOILER: I joined BOS and ended up punching in the code at the purifier in the rotunda and died automatically from radiation, a pretty lame ending). I'm sure there are alternate endings if you chose to side with the Enclave. The fact that you can't continue to play after completing the main quest is really lame.


Well, you can go back to your previous saved games and play from there. I didn't know either when it ended.

BTW there was no way that I was going into the chamber. I made the girl do it and I lived.

This is one of my favorite games of all time. I got way into it. I tried to replay it as a bad guy but I just couldn't do it.
I'm too lazy to make a sig at the moment

That's funny...I had the same experience with this game. It rocked...completed all the side quests etc. When I started to play through again, this time as a villain, it just didn't feel right. I even chose to be a female just to try to make it easier to disassociate myself from the character, but it didn't work all that great.

My favorite games are Burnout 3 and Burnout Revenge, but this game was definitely pretty exceptional IMO. I recently completed the project anchorage expansion of the game, and while it was fun it was too linear. You do get some nice equipment out of it though...I read that in future expansions you'll be able to go beyond level 20, so that will be cool.

If you really want to play some more fallout it's worth it...if you weren't really addicted to the game, it's probably not worth it. You do get some nice equipment after completing it, but I already had the most powerful weapons/armor in the game...so now I have an incredibly strong sniper weapon that shoots microfusion cells, but only chambers one round at a time. It's still a sweet weapon, but what am I going to do with it now? I've already beaten the game and done all the sidequests...

It was a fun diversion, but I expect future expansions of the game to be better.

You play this sidequest virtually, similar to one of the quests in the game...in this virtual world you can't pick up any equipment off fallen bad guys, but instead there are refueling depots littered throughout the simulation (too many IMO...it's quite easy) where you replenish your ammo/health. As I mentioned earlier, it's also very linear.

But it is Fallout...so that's a good thing! :-D

I just thought I'd throw this out there for anyone interested in the Fallout series. Fallout 1 and 2 were published by Interplay and developed by the legendary Black Isle studios, who among Fallout created Planescape:Torment, and assisted the-now Bioware guys with Baldurs Gate and its sequels (Bioware went on to create a little game called Knights of the Old Republic). Long story short Interplay mishandled its money, put out some poor games, and went bankrupt. Sadly as they went belly up the original Fallout 3 (being developed by the creators, Black Isle) was cancelled, Black Isle broke up and they went onto to other things, like Vampire:The Masquerade, and Knights of the Old Republic and Neverwinter Nights sequels.

When Interplay put the Fallout franchise up for sale, the original Black Isle guys tried to buy back the license, but were outbid by Bethesda (who just released the immensely popular Oblivion), and as you might guess many felt bitter towards Bethesda. The point of this post is to encourage those who liked Fallout 3, but might've felt a little something missing, to try Fallout 1 or 2.

Bethesda made many controversial changes to the Fallout series in making 3, including changing the game from a 3rd person isometric turn-based RPG into a first-person RPG (essentially a shooter), removing the ability to murder children (before you lampoon me here, many of the children in the original Fallouts would steal from you, and killing one made you hated and hunted by nearly everyone), as well as the classic option to target an enemy's groin. There was always a certain joy to completing the first areas simply by kicking rats and scorpions in the babymakers, as well as getting revenge on the raiders you had sex with to help others (I will not give away anymore than that). There was also criticism of Fallout 3 in that it toned down the dark elements of Fallout. The originals let you pimp out your wife, kill her johns for money, and than kill her for the heck of it. You could become a porn star (with hilarious results), start and finish gang wars, you get the picture.

Please, please do not miscontrue this as a "Fallout 3" sucks post, which would be a waste of time. Fallout 3 is a good, well-made game. But it isn't Fallout. I will warn you, if you are not fan of RPGs, and have not love of literature or literary wit and style, stick to Fallout 3, and go try Oblivion, which is basically Fallout 3 with swords and shields. But if you prefer more in-depth games, with sharp satire and some of the most memorable characters/situations/towns games have to offer, please, try Fallout 1 and 2. They are very cheap, and you might realize why it has such a strong cult following a decade after being released.

next Fallout outsourced to Black Isle and published by Bethesda title Fallout:New Vegas. Not a sequel but a separate game.
