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. --- War. War never chages.
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. --- PSNID: MathIsHard
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. --- This area will self destruct in T minus 10 seconds. Please commence screaming and running around in circles.

though, to answer your question, im shure they'll mention the other vaults from the previous games and such, but I doupt there will be much of a impact on story if you didnt play a previous one. --- This area will self destruct in T minus 10 seconds.
