Fallout 3! One of my favorite games of all time.
You start out being born in an underground vault and spend the first few hours growing up. Once you become an adult, you find out that your dad left. So, you get into a fight with the overseer and then head out on you own.
Leaving Vault 101 for the first time is something you’ll never forget.
The main story has you track down your dad but there’s so much more to the game then that. There’s also tons of side missions to keep you busy plus 5 DLC quest. You’ll fight communist china in Alaska, travel to the remains of Pittsburgh, trudge through murky swampland in Maryland, take a ride in a space ship, and put an end to the enclave remnants.
Its a first person shooter but using vats brings an element of strategy to the combat. Just pick a body part and pull the trigger. Level up your character and kick some ass.
Its easy to get lost in the world and the story you carve out for your character. The Capital wasteland is a vast and desolate place. It’s just begging to be explored. So bring along a friend, and be ready to spend hours and hours in post apocalyptic retro future America.
Prepare for the future.
