So my first ever fallout game was fallout 3 (I know, I know) and I enjoyed the time I had with the game and believed it to be at the time the best game I ever played...then I played fallout new vegas and that game quickly became my new favourite fallout and I still play it over and over again to this day however recently I decided to check out the original fallout games and boy was my world about to change. I played fallout 1 a few months ago I had actually bought it from a Dollar Store (Canadian) I had never played a top down turned based game before and being as young as I Am I wasn't sure if I would be able to play it but then I just decided to say fuck it and play it anyway. It took some getting used to and I did make a new character because my first one was utter garbage (Just like fallout 4) but after that I just played and played and played I didn't even care about the game being something that people my age almost never touch I just played the game because I realized as I started my journey into the California wasteland to save my vault that this game was amazing and the newer games could never compare to it. I did need to look some things up at certain times because I just couldn't figure it out but for the most part I was just fine without help from the Internet. As I played more and more I got so immersed in the game I just wanted to keep playing and the next thing I knew I was facing the Master after having snuck into the cathedral with some purple robes and I was explaining that his "perfect" race was doomed and he hadn't accomplished much (if anything) and then I was raiding Mariposa and getting ready to face the Lieutenant there and destroy the mutant making shit hole and everyone inside. Then just like that I was returning home to my vault proud of the things I had done when I arrived Jacoren was there waiting for me and after he told me I couldn't enter I pulled my gun a shot him leaving his corpse with Eds bones as I walked away from the vault. Walked away from my home. And as the song began to play as I watched my character slowy walk away with his head down I thought to myself "This game is a masterpiece and I need to play the second game immediately" After that it takes a while for me to buy fallout 2 and when I get it I play it non stop until my shit lap top blue screens and I have to wait to a while to play it again then just recently I downloaded fallout 2 again and have resumed playing it from my last save I just returned to Arroyo and was making my way to the remains of Mariposa (didn't I blow that the fuck up?) to check out my grandfathers handy work and to see what the enclave are or were up to. I have used a walk through here and there because fallout 2 is a massive game and sometimes I need a little help I did use the walk through to get the advanced power armour early I will admit that may have been a bit cheeky. I won't be able to play fallout 2 again for another two weeks but that's fine, don't worry about spoilers Btw I already know what happens at the end of fallout 2. Now I'm playing fallout 4 and it just feels...wrong at least with obsidian some of the original guys were there and made new vegas feel similar to the first games but Bethesda just can't make a decent fallout game it seems to me now. Or a decent elder scrolls if what the Internet says is correct. Their writing is absolute trash and they add lore that conflicts with already established lore (How is jet in pre-war America?) they also can't seem to flesh out their characters at all I mean they did an okay job with some characters but most are boring and not worth any attention. Bethesda seems to think that because most newer fallout fans won't want to play the originals they can do whatever they want and get away with it. Also how the fuck are super mutants in Boston? Their just there no half assed explanation or anything just boom only there for a common enemy and to have an excuse for everyone to be scared. Honestly I'm not sure if Bethesda can ever do fallout justice maybe if they hired new writers or let obsidian make fallout games from now on (Like that will happen) but they just can make a good fallout experience like the first two games. But I still have hope because if there is one thing the original games taught me it's to have hope and maybe if war doesn't change Games can. TL;DR Young teen played originals and loved every second. Played fallout 4 and was disappointed but still hopes that maybe one day Bethesda can make a decent game. Sorry if it was a long read and if there were any spelling mistakes I wrote this at 2 am and I was pretty tired and was only being kept away by some nuk- Coca-Cola.
