Will Fallout 3 be remembered in 10 years' time?

  1. Absolutely. It will leave a lasting impression.

  2. Yes, it's a great game.

  3. Propably, yes. Look at the sales numbers.

  4. Maybe. I don't really know.

  5. Rather not, it's a mediocre game that's fun, but forgettable.

  6. No, the gamers will grow up and it will be forgotten.

  7. What, Fallout 3 exists?

    This game, at least until fallout 4, was the most poorly written disgrace in the mainline series. The story is in no way shape or form well written even ignoring the lore contraditions.
    It's certainly good enough but it's poorly utilized and new vegas made huuuuuuge improvements.
    In a gambryo game? Unlikely.
    You mean the part where the Enclave, who were conpletely destroyed in the last game, shows up to fix the Purifier and your dad kills himself for no reason other than he doesn't want the Enclave to have credit? Two guys in power armour are killed by the radiation, which a purifier should not emit, but col autumn returns later despite wearing only a trench coat. This is by far one of the most poorly written and mishandled scenes in the entire franchise. Yes that includes the final confontation with frank horrigan.

    Look man you enjoy it? Awesome. I wish I could but the game just makes me angry with how much of the fallout universe it destroys or devalues. You like the game and that's cool but don't try and tell me it's well written because that's when you cross the realm of opinion and taste to just being wrong.

    It is the game that introduced porn mod obsessed teens to the Fallout series, of course it's gonna be remembered.

    Funny that the first option has the most votes, but nearly 10 years later and it's easily one of the most criticized games in the series for being an harbinger of how much the series would be fucked. New Vegas gave the series a glimmer of hope that the series would bounce back and improve, but then comes 4 and pretty much fucks this series even harder than 3.

    It's like watching a drug addled buddy get better then relapse and forget even more of what he is.

    You say that like it's retarded or something.

    IIRC he injects himself with something, it's still a bad scene though. Especially since he apparently has time to inject himself (he just happened to have this really powerful anti-radiation serum) yet the two power armour troopers (who should be way better protected than a man in a trenchcoat) die almost instantly.

    This fucking thread still active, and we're reaching 10th anniversary of Fallout 3. I guess it is well remembed. So, question answered.

    So after ten years (and I kinda want to do a YT video on this asking if it holds up)

    I can safely say that Fallout 3 is... Okay.

    As a game, I like it a lot. But since New Vegas came out, it's more of a relic of a game from a previous time.

    As a game for 2008, I think its open endedness is something fairly different from the landscape 10 years ago.

    The RPG system is actually... Decent.
    It certainly feels like at least some of the team cared about what they were making.

    However, it will always be that game that introduced me to better games.

    And with Fallout 4 being a massive let down, even by Bethesda standards, I think it'll be a nostalgic memory rather than a masterpiece.

    I love how this thread just keeps on chugging along. Somewhat makes the whole thread pointless. This is where Tagaziel or someone else comes in and vats the thread for no reason, another thread pops up in response, and we all circlejerk for another year or two until the process repeats.


    *Checks who created thread.

    It's Tagaziel.
