Game: Fallout 3 (X-Box 360)

My vote so far for the best game of the year. This game has great graphics and even better game play. If you've played Bethesda's award winning game The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion you would basically understand the game play. Its Oblivion in an post-apocalyptic world with guns. Its a first or third person (your choice) role-playing game where you assume the roll of a person who was born after the nuclear apocalypse that has devastated the country. I haven't found any clues as to what happened to the rest of the world but I am assuming they were devastated as well. The game takes place in the ruins of Washington D.C. and the surrounding areas. Some of the best things are exploring the ruins of famous landmarks in D.C. like the Washington Monument and the Pentagon, now named The Citadel. This game is great and the only drawback is it does not have any online multiplayer.

Pros:
- Indepth story and exciting gameplay.
- Easily 100+ hours of play.
- Great audio and visuals

Cons:
- No online gameplay.
- Navigating to specific destinations may be difficult.
- Character creation could be more extensive

Replay Value: Extremely High

Total Score: 9.5 of 10

Clues to the rest of the country can be found in Fallout 1 & 2. :D

Sorry Luke, my trans-Atlantic lover. I have been having some life changing things happening so I've taken a brief break from Mopo, but I'm back now.

Actually I noted that I did not know what happened in the rest of the world because I have read several statements that Bethesda has stated several times that they did not use alot of the past or current events from the Fallouts created by Interplay and just used the general idea of the game to make their.

In my honest opinion, I think they should have followed up with Interplay's story line being an old Fallout player myself, but I have no complaints of the current storyline.

Good to hear. Hope all is well. Or at least looking hopeful :8

Yeah, knowing everything else isn't needed for enjoying the game, but it is cool to know the backstory of the universe you're playing in. I agree that the direction they chose to go in is pretty great, though.
