In last week’s debate we discussed the pros and cons of two of the most loved games in recent years, and both games saw an immense amount of support, with many elaborate posts that I really enjoyed reading. Dtoid reader knutaf even wrote a community blog about the debate! With well over 100 votes cast, it looks like the winner will surely be a strong contender in the massive-sized RPG series tournament that we’re slowly approaching:
- Mass Effect 2 (82 votes) — Winner!
- Mass Effect 1 (42 votes)
This week we take on another series debate that will make many readers roll their eyes, and even I expect a Fallout 3 massacre to be inevitable, but that’s still no reason to assume Fallout 3 is better just because it’s newer and larger. There are some valid arguments against Fallout 3 which need to be discussed before casting a vote. Such as the debate that Fallout 3 was less mature and morally ambiguous as its predecessors. And also the very compelling argument that Fallout 3 was incredibly buggy, even for months and months after its release. Are these just chinks in the armor? Or enough to slay the beast? That’s for you to decide!
Leave no concept or design aspect untouched, weigh all options, and check out what other points are being brought up in the comments before casting a vote! Which of the Fallout games is the best, and why? What sets it apart from the other games in its series? Sell me on the idea! Get me stoked to see it compete in the tournament! Give it some serious thought, share your reasoning with all of us, and then check back next week to see how your game did!
