Sounds like a dumb question, I know. But I was wondering if I needed to play Fallout 1 and 2 to actually understand, or fully enjoy Fallout 3? I've heard nothing but great things about the Fallout games, and would like to check out the third.
Just wondering, because some games *Cough*Final Fantasy*Cough* the numbers are just there because the name sells.
It may really depend on your age, not to be condescending, as to whether you should play 1 and 2.
They're great, classic RPGs in the old sense of the word. But they're clunky and archaic looking compared to modern material. I do recommend you at least try Fallout 1. Doesn't take that long to play through, especially if you use a GameFAQ-brand guide!
It's also something to kill the wait time with. Once you see the old-school goodness, you'll understand why many are upset at the change in play style.
It might make 3 more fun. If they get the Fallout style right (which they might.... sorta...) there should be a lot of little nuances you'll appreciate a lot more with the first one or two under your belt. Plus, they're just good.
well, they say that everybody developing the game are major fallout fans are trying to get all the feel of the origonal games, though through a new methoid of gameplay.. but we'll have to be the judge of that. I for one like the new direction. if they do it right, it'll be great.
