I had been exposed to the Fallout series prior to my first playthrough of Fallout 1 mostly through YouTube (Many A True Nerd, Lazy Game Reviews, etc.) and it seemed very enjoyable so after I bought it off of GOG over the summer and I finally banged the game out over the course off a week.
Overall I thought it was pretty good, especially in regards to atmosphere and story. I liked a lot of the characters and I was always motivated to continue onto the next location to see what was going to happen. The narrative was compelling and the back story and motivation for The Master were so engrossing I felt a little bad about having to put him out of his misery. The combat can get pretty slow if you aren't killing enemies in one shot (My Small Guns skill and aimed shots to the eyes with the Red Ryder BB quickly alleviated that issue). I also thought the pacing of the story was pretty weird in spite of me enjoying it: After you get the water chip, it's off to Mariposa and the Cathedral and you're done. The game's main quest is very front loaded with what you done and where you go. Despite it's rough edges I had a lot of fun and I want to play through it again (After I get through Fallout 2 and more of my GOG backlog).
- I probably would have more fun I just focused on Small Guns, Sneak, and Speech and not try to cram in Energy Weapons into my skills and inventory towards the end.
- Harold is the best character in the game
- Didn't expect to hear Mr. Krabs or Bobby Hill doing voice work in this game.
