Top 10 Best Fallout Games

The Top Ten
1 Fallout: New Vegas Fallout: New Vegas Product Image

Fallout: New Vegas has terrible combat, monochromatic setting and terrible graphics. But if you're able and willing to look past those surface level shortcomings, you'll find the most RPG-oriented Fallout of the 3D games (I didn't play 1 and 2, so I can't say anything about those.).

Indeed, the writing in Fallout 4 and 3 (and Skyrim) is so purile in comparison, that I have some serious doubts with regards to Bethesda's writers. I can only hope that they were trying to make the games easy to translate by minimizing linguistic depth, and easier on children by dumbing everything down, because the only alternative I can think of is this deeply depressing one: That writers like Bethesda's can be and are considered professional.

Fallout 3 and 4 are nothing compared to this masterpiece. New Vegas has the best atmosphere and story. And it also has some funny dialogues.

I love fallout New Vegas, I love the story mode the controls are ok but there is so much you can do! I have over a 100 hours in this game and I don't regret any one of those hours.

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

It introduced vats. It brought the Fallout franchise into the new generation. It easily has the most diverse wasteland. How can this not be your number one? Sure, most of its DLC (sans Point Lookout) is garbage. Sure, the main story is worse than even Fallout 4's. But Oasis exists so everything's okay.

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.

Classic. People forget how much this game did right, the atmosphere was awesome, it fixed the dumb throwing skill and turned it into explosives, was the first Bethesda game to perfect the fast traveling, and made all the SPECIALs as important as they were in the 2D games. Sure, the story is just okay and the ending is just retarded, but it arguably has the coolest wasteland to explore.

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

This should be first since it has better story lines, RPG mechanics and characters. They gameplay may be hard for you but get used to it and you'll find it good. Heck, you could even be a porn star, some people said that.

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

The best Fallout there ever will be.

I love busting guys groin

4 Fallout 4 Fallout 4 Product Image

In my Opinion, Fallout 4 is better then Fallout 3. Most people who vote for 3 are so Nostalgia blind, New Vegas is Clearly the best, Followed by 2 and 1, and then 4 and 3.
Why though? Because The story is a thousand times better and you actually have choice, The Brotherhood aren't just some watered down good guys anymore. Not to mention the color pallet is way better, I grow tired of Fallout 3's colors an hour or 2 after I started playing because it's all so bland. The Settlement building really made Looting scrap mean something too, and building settlements is some people spend 10s of hours on. Not to mention Fallout 4 is to 3 that 3 is 2. A departure from the original formula that switched it up and made it more accessible to more people.

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

I love this game it was the most played game in 2015 and wideley a huge game with choices to make left and right

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

Masterpiece. Anybody that likes Fallout New Vegas and thinks it is the pinnacle of the series needs to go back and play this. The story and pacing are perfect and zero handholding makes you feel extremely accomplished. People always talk about how old the combat system and movement is, but seriously it will take one or two hours and it feels as natural as any other game.

The game that started it all. Damn this game gives me nostalgia especially the music that plays when creating your character.

The story is not that great but the game did well.

Great RPG, but the game focus on killing and no dialogues. Did I forgot to mention that you can ride cars in this game?

There is no speech dialogues in this game so charisma is kinda useless here...

"I think my dog might be gay."
-Some random raider dude

At least you can ride a tank on this game!

7 Fallout Shelter

This was honestly a fun game. Not all fallout games have to be long and full of complex story to be good, though admittedly that does help a ton. However, this game is still underrated for what it is.

This game is a cynical cash grab with little entertainment value.

Lol I like it but not enough to be one of the top

It was a great game until they made it so hard

8 Fallout: Brotherhood of Steel Fallout: Brotherhood of Steel Product Image
9 Fallout 76

I actually think this game is (right now) is good. But it obviously didn't launch well and still had heaps of bugs at launch.

Fortnite is terrible, and I hate you.

Boi this game ain’t even out yet! :P

Fallout 4 + Fortnite: Battle Royale= Best Game Ever
