Taking everything from Oblivion IV and turning it into something even more focused, Fallout 3 brings together a much more focused story and adds the integration with a personal character system that lets you experience the world in all it is simplicity. With a great combat system like the VATS and moreover a vast landscape that is still similarly unparalleled to Bethesda Softworks’ previous titles, Fallout 3 might be the first post-apocalyptic world that everyone wants to surprisingly be some part.

I'm all about one thing: truth. I don't care if you're a publisher - I don't care if you LIMIT me to access/reviewing your game (Sony), and I don't give a damn about anything you do to stop me from being honest. I can purchase any and all games and review them without bias unlike other "critics" / party-attenders.


  1. 2010 for full list people!

  10. This was just so magnificent and munificent.

  11. Fallout 3 Action rocks. I love it when you go into the school, and you have to run with a timer.
