I hear Fallout
is pretty good. Got some sort of following or something. People rabid over the third game. Do you know why? I sure as hell don't because I'm not a computer gamer and never have been (except for Myst
) so this one completely flew by me. But Post apocolyptic RPG sounds both original and fun as hell. Plus I am almost 100 percent positive that my POS laptop will be able to play this game thanks to the fact that it is old as old.
But age doesn't mean a lack of quality (I hope). Especially when the third in the series is coming out soon and going to be compeltley different or something. I for one want to know what those differences will be. Once again, knowing your roots is the main point of this and it seems to me that Fallout
has some of the strongest roots around. Few games truly get what can be described as a cult following but this one definitely has it and I hope to find out why. Don't you want to know too?
The final reason I chose this game is because I'm told it's an RPG that can be beaten really quickly or painstakingly slowly depending on what you want to do. I want to play plenty of RPGs for Educate Yourself and we will but I also realize not many people have the time to kick through 40 hours of gameplay since there are so many other games distracting them. Thus Fallout
is a great first RPG since it can be completed relatively quickly and once we do one we'll all know how to manage our time around it and then we can dive head first into things like Earthbound
, Secret of Mana
and whatever FF
game I decide to play.
So get ready to do it like Mad Max
and pop those ancient CDs into your CD-ROM drives. It's time to Educate Yourself.
