    Play with the fixt. You can then ask your companion to move aside.

    Fixt rules undoubtedly! And the Restoration Project of F2 (God bless Kiilap), and F1,5 Resurrection too (praise our Czech brothers)! And you know what? F3 also rules, and even 4 (although I need a huge upgrade to run it). NV and Tactics too! Just try not to compare newest games with the classics, enjoy each game separately, and you'll be fine!
    Sorry if a bit offtop, just had to say this!

    I first got into Fallout with the game i'm not supposed to mention here, then went on to New Vegas and then finally bought 1,2 and tactics. I also bought 4 but that is literally the worst piece of shit ever made.

    I saw it on Venturiantale ( yes I know he is weird) but that got me into New Vegas. Before that iv seen only videos turned into memes from it.

    Started when i was eleven with new vegas. Went back to three then to the OG ones and now i play them all. My stepdad had new vegas and i decided to try it out. It was super unique from any other game i had played since then

    One day a friend of mine recommended a game called Fallout 3 to me, so I played it and loved it, I couldn't get enough of it. I was like that for awhile and I never played New Vegas. One day I decided to play the classics and realized how flawed Fallout 3 was, I then went on to play New Vegas and love it, and that's it.

    If any of you are interested in playing Fallout 3 in your Fallout New Vegas (and own both english games and all DLCs on PC) and if you don't know about it, try the TTW (a Tale of Two Wastelands) project.

    I've heard of it and while it does seem cool I'd rather keep them separate. I feel that enhances the experience for me but thank you regardless

    It does seem like very nice mod, but I no longer care to play through fallout 3, but thank you for the reccomendation.

    I was ten years old when Fallout 3 came out, and I played it religiously on the 360 after having played Oblivion for a decent amount of time. I pre-ordered New Vegas on the 360 as well, discovered to superiority (subjectively speaking) of PC and got them both on there a couple years later along with a Steam sale that included 1, 2 and Tactics. Pre-ordered Fallout 4 (regressively for certain reasons) and put 300 hours in it the first two weeks after release. I still have yet to determine a favorite of the franchise however, as I have yet to finish Fallout 2 or start Tactics.

    I discovered Fallout via a friend in high school back in 97 or so. He was going nuts over this game telling me how absolutely free he was to do anything he wanted. It was interesting to listen to him talk about it but at the time a PC was a luxury neither I nor my family could afford so it was in one ear and out the other.

    Fast forward to 2001. I was 19, on my own and making a living. I stopped at the local gamestop to check out what was coming out for my newly acquired PS2. I was just generally looking around and found a hardcopy of Fallout on one of the racks and I remembered what my buddy from high school told me. Instead of picking up a new PS2 release I purchased the Fallout and played it on my new Dell. The rest is history.

    My dad had New Vegas on his Steam account, so I played it fervently my sophomore year of high school, alongside Fallout 3 which I discovered later.
    I was the Fallout nut in high school. I had the Vault-Tec lunchbox, the bobbleheads, and an NCR shirt.

    Eventually I got my own Steam and bought both Fallout 3 GOTY and New Vegas: Ultimate Edition. When Fallout 4 was announced, I was excited but also impatient. I bought Fallout, Fallout 2, and Tactics as part of a Steam bundle and said "Holy shit!"
    It was when I realized how mediocre Fallout 3 was compared to the OG Fallouts and New Vegas (although by itself, Fallout 3 is still incredible).
    Fallout 4 came out, I briefly considered it my favorite Fallout since I had so much fun playing it with mods. Then I came to this site.

    Curiously I found out about Fallout from a friend, who played Oblivion a lot, hence Fallout 3...

    I was at a store with my parents, about ten years old, circa 1999-2000. I think it was Big Lots. They had a tiny little section of cheap computer games and the original Fallout was one - the box caught my eye. I flipped it around and saw Killian Darkwater on the back. Somehow convinced my parents to buy it for me, expecting a totally different game than what I got.

    Mind = blown.
