Itís been several years since the release of Fallout 3, and another Fallout game has been released since then, but if youíre still playing itóor even just starting it for the first timeóitís not really that surprising. After all, Bethesdaís 2008 post-apocalyptic open world game was incredibly well-received, and many fans still really love it. You can play it on the PC, PS3, or Xbox 360, so itís still easily accessible since weíve just entered the new console generation. So, what is it that made Fallout 3 so great?
Well, we donít have enough time to go into all of the details here, but it was an atmospheric game with an open world, exploration, tons of content, moral choices, and more. The choices tied into a karma system, which isnít uncommon in this sort of player-driven RPG. In fact, you can find guides specifically about earning good karma or bad karma, to help players who are having trouble with the gameís morality system. You could use Fallout 3ís RPG elements to customize your characterís skills as you earned XP, although of course there are cheats to help you drive up your skills to 100%, as well as methods to earn more XP.
Of course, itís not just you and your player, even in a post-apocalyptic wasteland. Youíll have companions, so itís a good thing you can find guides on how to win them over. Youíll also have a dog, and while heís very useful on his own, thereís a cheat that actually makes him invincible! Additionally, youíll interact with other NPCs and ghouls, and youíll want to have enough money on hand to buy important items. Some Fallout 3 cheats exploit little glitches in the game so you can build up as much money as you want. For example, itís possible to pick a characterís pocket, leave, and then repeat the process. Another method has you stealing caps from a ghoul, leaving the area, and returning to steal more caps. Money is important, but when it comes to fighting, youíre really going to want to have some stimpacks. Some players have had difficulty with that, and therefore, you can also find guides to help you build up an infinite supply of stimpacks and other items. And when those items start to fill up your inventory, check out a few tips on how to carry more items with you and where to store the rest.
Skills and stimpacks alone wonít help you, of course. This isnít the sort of game where youíll be running from your enemies. Youíll want to stand and fight, so Fallout 3 has a wide range of weapons for you to acquire and use. Some are trickier to find than others, like the Alien Blaster. If you really want it, but you donít know how to get it, feel free to check out a guide. Thatís not the only weapon you can find help for, either. The A3-Plasma Rifle, Vengeance Laser Turret, and many more all have guides to make sure you get them.
Fallout 3 is a big game. If you find yourself feeling a little lost, thereís no harm in looking up some hints on how to get into the Megaton Armory, for example. You can also learn how the Feral Ghoul Mask can help you. And maybe you just want to learn some secrets, whether itís about a specific glitch or an Easter egg like the guard named Stockholm. Yes, there is a lot to do and discover in Fallout 3, enough to keep you entertained for a long, long time.
