I love Fallout 3. It is the best Fallout game because the Enclave are the best villain in the series by far and it has so many good locations and level design. I've probably beat it 100 times, but really it is the best because of the mods. I think the older games are pretty good, but the combat is so boring I wish it gave you a real time option. I ended up quitting by the time I got to the Den in 2 because I kept dying in random encounters in the mountains for some reason. I think teh encounters are bugged. I can't wait for them to remake Fallout 1 and 2 with modern graphics since those games were too limited by the 90's technology. It's a shame Fallout 4 didn't have the Enclave as the villain instead of the Institute. That is probably why I pick Fallout 3 over 4 overall. Fallout 3 simply has more replay value than Fallout 1 and Fallout 2 combined. The only Fallout I don't like is Tactics especially since it's not cannon.
