The fallout series- the best series of non-fantasy RPG's ever. Good for people who are sick of beards, magic swords and crap, and want a bleak, futuristic setting with drugs, violence, guns, ho's, etc.
An exquisite game,set in a post apocalyptic world after a nuclear exchange. The games brilliance comes from music,atmosphere and the weaving of the overall story. It's bleak,depressing,eerie and gritty. The 50's retro theme fits perfectly with the nuclear war plot and pulp comic sci-fi science&technology. The high-tech world that is described is done in a 1950's motif, giving excellent atmosphere and feeling.
The game itself is an rpg with somewhat non-linear gameplay. You are confined to the story ultimately, but still have a fair degree of freedom. The game is loads of fun any way you play and is equally interesting from start to finish.
If you understand what the guys at Interplay were going for you'll see what an amazing game this is.
If i had to describe the series with colours: fallout 1 is black,fallout 2 is green, and fallout:tactics is pink for being so gay
Best RPG period. Actually realistic setting unlike Dungeons and Dragons and that gay shit. Who needs wizards, magic, and swords when you can have plasma rifles that melt flesh right off of peoples bones, whores, mutants, drugs, armor that makes you look badass, and blowing people up to human sausage. Created by Black Isle
Fallout rules doude.
Legendarily good RPG set in the post-apocalyptic world. First two games were first-class roleplaying gold, containing violence, humour and a number of cool film references. The Brotherhood of Steel spinoff for the PS2 was something of a misfire, though.

A state of mind one gets from playing Black Isles post apocaliptic role playing game where they eat shit and dream fallout. This person might have anything from giant gecko's to enclave, to a dominatrix mutant, even to a crashed whale, and the nights of camelot (Nie!) on there mind at all times... These people can be extremely dangerous because the line of reality is crosses soo much, the only way to be accepted by them is to buy the game fallout, and become an addict.
