We will not tell you if this game is worth it or not as a game, but we WILL tell you that it sucks as a Fallout game. But hey, if money-hungry Bethesda wouldn't have stamped that “Fallout” thing in the title, it wouldn't have sold so much, that's for sure. A recent press release from the company reveals that this Action/FPS title, that some people wrongfully call a “RPG”, has so far been doing pretty good on the market (as expected), with over 4.7 million units shipped worldwide.



That is, for all platforms it has been released for. PC, X360 and PS3. Not bad, actually. But, as I said, expected. Ah well, blame the new “casual” generation, I'm pretty sure that most hardcore Fallout fans are now extremely pissed off. I know I am. Not at the game itself, because it looks good, moves good, it IS a good action game, but just seeing it being called Fallout for absolutely no reason makes me sad.

Well youre pretty fucking stupid, to call a game not a true game in the series just because its gameplay mechanics aren't exactly the same is just straight up being retarded. It follows the same storyline, setting, and has alot of other similarities scaterred through out the game (same monsters, weapons, character types, etc.) as the last two. But the battle system and gameplay mechanics are changed up for the better, and OMG! ITS NOT FALLOUT! Yeah, because a game has to remain exactly the same as it's predecessors for it to be considered a sequel! Not like Mario or Sonic has ever changed up it's formula! They're still 2D side scrolling platformers right? Because anything else just couldn't be accepted as a sequel! Seriously, stop crying your river and just live with Fallout 3 being an awesome game that does great service to the Fallout name. And it's a fucking RPG. How the fuck isn't it? You level up, have stats, and change your character up how you want. That defines fucking "Role Playing".

Fallout 3 is not Fallout. Fallout 3 is Bethesdas post nuclear FPS. If you think its Fallout 3, I invite you to speak to Chris Avellone, J.E. Sawyer, and Feargus Urquhart.

Lol, you mean Chris Avellone, J.E. Sawyer and Feargus Urquhart? The ones developing the Fallout 3 spin-off, Fallout: New Vegas? Apparently it's Fallout enough for them to make another game using the exact same engine.
