after i beat it like 3 times on xbox when it came out, i got a bit burned out. last week i bought the GOTY on pc and installed a wanderers mod and within minutes i lost interest. i think im a vanilla guy because all the mods arent doing it for me, or im just over the game... will have to see. the good part is that i play it completely maxed with never a drop under vsync and it looks alot better than xbox did...

It's a fallout game. Stop being a pretentious derp. Says Fallout, it's set in the Fallout universe, it has Fallout weaponry, uses Fallout factions...yeah it's a fallout game.


So if all you're going to do is say it's "oblivion with guns", get the hell out.


PS: If the melee system in FO3 is anything to go by the combat in oblivion sucked anyways. Idunno if it's the hit detection issues, the fact that there's no way in hell to get close enough to get a sneak attack without some sort of Stealth field(which AFAIK isn't in oblivion), or the really piss-poor animations...

I think I'm going to leave it alone just to annoy the grammar nazis around here.

Mods are why I played it 8 times TBH

At the very least you'd be smart to install some texture/graphics mods and the Unofficial patch. They don't change much on the surface but omg do they make it look and run better.

O..................blivion with guns!!!!!!!!!!!!!

what now?

I appreciate the game for what it is, i also dislike it for what it isnt.

They could have put a different name on the game and it would have still sold well and been a game of the year. they didnt have bastardize a franchise at the same time .

Other than the horrid job they did with the franchise, i love the game. Even more so with Marts Mutant mod. Its just fun as hell to play in a sandbox.

Dude. It's called Fallout 3. It's a fallout game. They didn't bastardize the franchise at all.


Geez. Call it what it is or don't call it anything at all. It's not oblivion with guns. And like I said if the melee combat is anything to go by combat in Oblivion sucked anyways.

if you havent played oblivion, how do you know it isnt oblivion with guns?

I am in here to appreciate the game the same as you, but im not going to pretend it doesnt have its flaws either.

I'm not saying it's perfect either. It's probably the most unstable piece of code I've ever executed, for starters. But I'm not going to sit here and say it isn't Fallout either, and I'm not going to throw that baseless 'oblivion with guns' argument around either. Using this argument is no different than saying TF2 is just a HL2 mod, even though the only thing TF2 shares with HL2 is the game engine itself.

You're in here to appreciate/discuss the 3D Fallouts. Not "Post-apocalyptic futuristic 1950's SP RPG", and not "Oblivion with Guns". So are you going to appreciate/discuss Fallout3 and NV, or are you going to come in here and try to tell us it isn't what it very clearly is and use baseless arguments against it?

I actually far prefer oblivion combat than FO3. IN FO3, they have that random hit generator (at least with guns, can't remember melee) that meant I could shoot you through the chest and miss. That was annoying. I actually preferred melee in both games when I could use it Oblivion melee was pretty decently done though, and mods can make it that much better.

It is not oblivion with guns, having played both. They both have thier own story set, their own little quirks (Like radiation or vampire-ism), they both have a totally different atmosphere. In fact, the only real similarity between the two is the open box-ness of it all.
