Best Fallout Games


The Top Ten

1 Fallout: New Vegas

I like all three of the Fallout games but I think fallout 4 didn't have enough about mutants and cities. Fallout 4 would benefit from a mission like take back Quincy which leads on to other quests, or a vault filled with super mutants but I did love Fallout 4 workshop which evened it out for me. I didn't like that Fallout 3 and New Vegas didn't have sprinting and I am about to see a lets play of fallout 2 on YouTube

New Vegas for me. It was much more up-beat that Fallout 3. A lot more variation in environments and enemies. I also preferred the story. I must have put a couple of hundred hours into the game in all! - JoshUK

Fallout 3 is only number 2 because its well known, once you get past the theme changes from oblivion, its easy to see why fallout 3 is really just oblivion with guns and FNV is a genuine fallout game with a change in perspective, Bethesda were simply lucky to get their hands on such a unique franchise and rebrand it with a new audience, I can take or leave the gunplay, but obsidian re-injected the life, lore, characterization and dark humour the series was known for, once you get past fallout 4's technical improvements you can really see which game added more to the franchise

2 Fallout 3

Fallout new Vegas I thought was better at first, but then I came back to this game and I realized, fallout new Vegas had more choices and your choices really mattered, however on that not new Vegas suffered from having nothing to do compared to fallout 3. What I mean by this is free roaming, fallout 3 just had a much more diverse map and fallout new Vegas just had, well a boring map to put it simple, if they chose a different area besides a desert it would have been a lot more fun, I mean come on a desert is about as boring as you could get for a place to explore lets be honest with ourselves. And then you get to Las Vegas and realize they kinda bombed the one too no pun intended, it just felt uninspired you know.

Fallout 3 was a huge step forward for the series. It had massive amounts of content and a great setting. Fallout New Vegas is good as well, but did not really make any huge steps forward. It was not a big enough jump. If Fallout 4 ever comes out I hope it is actually improved to the extent of the elders scrolls series. Oblivion to Skyrim was a huge improvement. The story was also good too. You go from a baby all the way up to a famous or infamous wanderer of the wasteland in search of your father, but as you continue yor search you get mixed up in something much bigger. The dlc is also the best with new weapons and enemies. F3: 9.75/10, FNV:8/10

Fallout 3 is the best in the franchise, in my own opinion. Though New Vegas and Fallout 4 are great, Fallout 3 has a much more developed story and a more interesting world, in my own opinion, and was the first game to kick off Bethesda's version of the already established expectations. New Vegas mixed up the formula a bit, but felt a little bit more bland compared to the interesting world of Fallout 3. Personally I think it's more interesting to walk through the devastated ruins of Washington D.C. then the empty Mojave desert, but whatever floats your boat.

New Vegas is a 9.9
Fallout 3 is a 10

3 Fallout 4

Fallout new Vegas is my boi, however it had a better dialogue and choice system, but when it came down to it once you finish the quests there is nothing to do, hence why I voted for 4 it fixes this problem by having 4x more quests, unlimited errand running quests, better factions and better more believable brotherhood that weren't stupid and all laser rifle religious like in the previous, I'm sorry its true that idea was lame. And modeable weapons, more enemy variety, better more varying world, enemies that change a little bit as you level up and become harder, settlement building, improved companion system. The downside to this game is why they messed the dialogue choice system so hard, like for real! However even though idiots are complaining that your character talks, which in all honesty is great because who the hell likes a mute protagonist. Really enjoyed the cinematic speeches and great voice acting which was miles better than previous fallouts, those voice actors couldn't even ...more

This game was most played in 2015 and was a monumental success for Bethesda it was my first fallout game and only I bet played over and over

I like Fallout 4, but I'm sure that you people have barely played the other games.

It was so awesome and really good for Bethesda they made there own fallout game and it’s really where mods in fallout started kickoff

4 Fallout 2

Has the best story for most of the fallout games even though if it is lacking in gameplay

Timeless classic that would never be made today, it did so much in terms of humour and quests that were clearly what the devs liked as opposed to what the largest portion of people liked, yep no bland FO3 shooting or FO4 settlements to be found here
