This post is going to be a personal history in terms of my experience with the Fallout series. I'm not a Fallout 1 & 2 veteran. I started playing Fallout 3 in 2008 and that was my first Fallout game. It's a really memorable and nostalgic game for me. And probably it was one of the first RPGs I ever played. Whatever there is to be said critically about Fallout 3, it made me fall in love with the Fallout universe and for that achievement alone I think it deserves a huge amount of credit. And I'm pretty sure I couldn't have picked up and played FO1 or FO2 at that time because of the sheer difficulty. Now that I've finished Fallout 1 & 2, I can see all the great elements of these two games inherited by FO3, New Vegas and FO4 and also I can see the elements, features and themes that didn't find their way into the newer games and I find it unfortunate that they didn't. New Vegas was my favorite game up until I finished FO2. Now I'm a bit conflicted!
I have to be honest. When I was playing Fallout 1 I read a considerable amount of guides on how to progress the game. Mainly because the game design was a bit alien to me and I couldn't figure out what I was supposed to do and a lot of the times what you're supposed to do is very obscure that it's not easy to figure out by yourself i.e. using ropes with a certain radioactive treatment drug on a certain platform *wink wink*. Having finished Fallout 1, I sought assistance from online resources in considerably lower rates when playing Fallout 2. I have to confess that I looked at the wiki for finishing the end-game areas in both of the games. I have this feeling that I wish I did everything myself but looking back at it, there were times that I figured stuff out by myself and those moments were really rewarding so I think I can forgive myself.
To cut my rant or whatever it is shorter. Fallout 1 & 2 are each a masterpiece. Their greatness is not even a bit exaggerated by the people who have played them and I wish more members of the Fallout community played these two games. I was mind-blown by the cruel and unrelenting setting and atmosphere. The story of the both of the games is an integral part of the game design. There's so many moral and philosophical themes to explore in the games. Also those easter eggs and cultural references and how the narratives of the two games are interwoven is just so good that I don't know what to say.
Also I have to say I haven't actually finished any other Fallout game because I haven't been so compelled to finish any Fallout game other than 1 & 2. I just always get caught up in doing side quests!
