Back in 1999 I traded a German Fallout 2 CD (and later also a Fallout 1 CD) from a guy I met in school who had bought 'Gold Games 4' (game collection which included them), can't remember what I gave him for it. When I first played Fallout 2 I thought it was a real crappy game (graphics looked bad even in 1999, but in time I fell in love with the unique look) and some mechanics (like how to use dynamite etc.) seemed very unintuitive at first. I kept on playing through the Temple of Trials and by the time I had reached Vault City I couldn't stop anymore (I later even bought the English version of the game, just to support Black Isle and Interplay). When I had finished Fallout 2, I traded the Fallout 1 CD from the guy and played it through. How can Fallout 1 play so different from Fallout 2 when the engine is almost the same? Well, I love both of them, each a unique experience! In the years since I played them over and over (sometimes with mods like the Resurrection Project - which is fantastic) and recently played through the total conversions Nevada and Resurrection, both of which are fantastic imo, and just started playing Last Hope (which seems very good too so far and has a great inventory filter!). Never played Fallout 3 and the newer ones - I don't want them to spoil my Fallout experience. I bought and played Tactics but didn't finish it - Tactics is a real bad game imo, although released much later, it does everything worse than Jagged Alliance 2 (one of my other all time favorite games).
