Fallout 3 Is Better Than You Think

    I don't think most of FO3 haters go beyond the sentence "not made by the same guys as the original".

    I *was* gonna play FO3 when it came out. Then it hit me how much of a freaking useless brick my computer was back in the day. I started saving for a new motherboard, pair of RAM sticks and GPU (loved that investment, the gaming PC I put together because of FO3 lasted me a good 7 years of gaming ^^) and, in the meantime, bought FO1 and 2 to play, since I had never played any and was so invested in the franchise just off of the clips my friend had showed me.

    Cut to 5 months later (I was still learning English back then and working a lot to acquire the mentioned new PC, so it took me a loooong time to finish the games), I finish FO2 and about half a month after that I have my new PC and dive into FO3.

    For me it was *perfect* , I felt the transition from isometry and 2d to 3d as a welcome blessing, the atmosphere of struggling to survive and hilarious dark humor mixed with depressing details was still there, while I didn't care much for the main story it didn't take me long to come up with a character to roleplay as that fit into it, then another one, then another one, then another one... From Mister Bomb, a maniac pyromaniac who laughed as he watched Megaton blow up to Polfia, gentle talker who tried (and failed xD) to solve all conflicts of the game without violence, FO3 is a game that I have gone through over and over again so many times...

    It took me nearly a decade to find out it wasn't developed by the same people, which shocked me a lot. By then used to disappointments such as Mass Effect 3, Assassins Creed 3 (holy fuck what was that), I'd grown used to seeing games lose all that was captivating about them as sequels came out, yet Fallout was always to me a bastion of something that knew what it had going for it, and not only kept but expanded masterfully on it. To think that a completely different group of people created a sequel that, to this day, is my standard of how good serializing should be done, was mindblowing.

    I seriously can't believe there are people who hate on this game on the basis of it not being enough Fallout. For me, FO3 will always be paired as the most "fallouty" game in the series with FO2. Sure there are many things to criticize about it, it's far from a perfect game, but to bash on that point seems simply asinine.

    Am i the only one that downloaded my favourite Fallout 3 songs and have listened to them on their ipod for years. My boss used to leave me to work by myself building stone walls and I used to love listening to the old 40's songs thinking about roaming the wasteland by myself while I'm lonely working by myself out in the bush on a property. I cherish those songs, they bring good memories, from working and spending many, many hours playing

    Ok so i usually try to refrain from commenting on Fallout 3 stuff because its a shitstorm of 2 extremes trying to see who can best make a straw man out of the other, but when he got to the point where he was defending the game for being cinematic with its town gates, i had to to a double take. Then when he criticized other games in the series for not having it I had to take a break to write this. I do this because this video raises some good perspectives and, though some points are subjective, has been informative.
    I'll go on record of being lukewarm on Fallout as a whole. Nothing against it, I just haven't had the time to thoroughly experience it as I have games like Dark Souls (where I have around 800 hours clocked). I'll just point out that this is a rather ridiculous thing to bring up, and gives insight to the creators intention. As I continue to watch the video to the end it will seem less like a perspective of F3 about what good the game has to offer and more like a defence at any cost.

    the simple sheer feeling of starting fallout 3 continue to amazing me... I only can take it back if I compare that with fallout 2... and then fnv make you feel you done something important on both (as FNV reflect many things from both of those and FO1)

    Getting into the national guard armory was another cool unorthodox aspect of this game. You had to stack up barrels to jump onto a secret floor to gain access to a master level armory with a sentry bot there. This game was a pleasure to explore and was the most immersive Fallout game, where the story, world, and characters were the most important part of the game. You could even blow up a whole city..

    All of your points are really well made and I actually found myself disliking New Vegas which is weird because I never had a preference. My only criticism is that you portray FO3 as an unpopular, unliked game by a significant number of players while that really doesn't seem to be the case. It feels like you made a two hour video as a rebuttal to a couple people that didn't like FO3. The video was enjoyable so the length isn't really a problem. But you portray FO3 as divisive when it feels like the majority of fallout fans think both games are great.

    Megaton and Goodsprings might seem like a good comparison based on both being your first major town you arrive at. But while Megaton was designed to be interesting, Goodsprings was designed to be generic. The devs just wanted you to have introductory interactions and a small hub to work with, while Fallout 3 had accomplished this already within the Vault.

    • chinothepony

      +Rex Riply Yeah I agree. The capital wasteland is an incredible map.

    • chinothepony
      chinothepony Day ago

      +Rex Riply You're right, the characters in Megaton were a little bit on the generic side. I think all in all character and storytelling is why NV excels.

    • Rex Riply
      Rex Riply Day ago +1

      Megaton was also made to be disposable, goodsprings might not be as visually or structurally as interesting as megaton but it's character's are much more compelling, which fallout 3 would be able to use the argument that since megaton was made to be destructible that's why it's character weren't given much of a personality if Fallout 3's other characters weren't any better

    When you can’t play fallout 3 because your pc denies it blatantly.. telling you to install a program of wich i have a newer version installed wich somehow won’t register as viable so fallout 3 just doesn’t boot past the boot thing where your video settings are set i click on play and it doesn’t do jack.. now i have played it before and it worked then.. and yes i changed compatibility already on both the launcher and the .exe file

    F3 was my first and I loved it. Tbh I explored a lot and loved it and never really had any problem just stumbling into cool things. FNV’s style drew me in and I loved it as well. However I felt like I needed to search up things more because there wasn’t many hints towards places in my playthroughs

    I have honestly questioned people about fallout 3 Vs 1/2. And I can't tell if most people either haven't played the originals at all, or it's been so long that they don't remember much about them.
    I agree with so much in this video. I still think Fallout 2 is my favorite, but 3 is right up there. And I loved tactics, but I also love those style of games do having a strategy game style fallout was pretty fun.

    Let me explain why fallout 3 was bad and it won't take me 2 hours because I'm not British. When the game came out people were excited for a elder scrolls game with guns. The vault part of the game is just a tutorial and hardly anyone cared about it and wanted to just start their adventure. Elder scrolls games let you do a lot of side quests and be involved in a world that was alive. Sure it's supposed to be a wasteland, but Fallout 3 had nothing in it aside from the main story and like 10 side quests. People were used to hundreds of side quests. Fallout 3 had only a few towns to interact with and you were practically broke until you were almost done with the game. The whole experience felt like you were waiting for the game to open up to that elder scrolls experience but it never does. Most of the development seemed to have been spent on the tutorial and the end of the game with nothing in between.

    Although I do prefer NV overall, I strongly agree that Fallout 3 handles exploration so much better than NV. Blindly exploring the wasteland for the first time all those years ago was honestly one of the most interesting experiences I've ever had in a game.

  • multeyemeteor

    Also, I don't think you can make the argument that the karma system makes for a better rpg experience, just because it creates more random nonsense. If anything it's a failure of the game's mechanics that random NPC's or enemies can just magically gauge your "karma" and then decide to attack you on those grounds. The only way to justify the effects of the karma system is if there is some sort of elaborate communications network, where everyone in Fallout 3 except for you is constantly exchanging their opinions about you, or - and this is not in any way better - we're talking about a true sense of karma, where we're not even pretending that the NPC's or enemies have a will of their own, but are just spawned in to react to your karma on the grounds of some divine being's sense of morality. I don't think the overall point is that either 3 or NV is definitively better than the other in this regard, but NV's faction system is more elegant solution to the problem IMO.

  • multeyemeteor
    multeyemeteor 2 days ago

    I think most of your points are really interesting, well thought out, and it's given me a different perspective on 3 vs NV that makes me want to go back and play 3 for the 3rd or 4th time.

    However, I do think you're way off, when it comes to VATS, and it seems that you're falling into the pitfall of looking at what you're familiar with and used to and claiming it to be better on the merits of it being something that's habitual to you or something that used to be more prevalent. It's pure system justification. VATS in the newer Fallout games is for sure still tied to some of the game's mechanics (SOME not ALL), and it's an attempt at accomodating players, who are not that skilled at FPS. However, it's quite a thing to imply that it's less of a Fallout experience to play Fallout 4 or 76 as a shooter, now that the mechanics in the newer games better support this. Unless you're roleplaying an unskilled gunman having to rely on metaphysical oddities or a piece of technology known as VATS, most would probably agree that real time shooting mechanics represent the situation more realistically, or at least more immersive, however, it is a matter of preference. Some prefer real time FPS mechanics and consider them more immersive, while others prefer a more RTS-like approach, and neither is more correct than the other, regardless of what the game mechanics might seem to favor. I use VATS here and there when I play, but mostly when I'm in stealth or have to line up important shots (but far from all the times). However, I feel it's almost like cheating, because VATS was probably never supposed to make shooting overpowered or as advantageous as it can sometimes seem. VATS was more likely meant as a solution to a problem that the games' mechanics otherwise didn't have a proper way of solving, and while it was never elegantly implemented into Fallout 3, NV, 4, or 76, it did help retain a feeling of what makes the Fallout games a distinct experience with certain mechanics and a certain sort of combat aesthetic. Claiming that it is more than that, is - to me - a misrepresentation of the mechanic.

    I dont know who your talking about when you say people who liked New Vegas had to hate F3. I personally never saw this, I won't say it didn't happened, just that I didn't see it. I prefer New Vegas, but there are key differences in what I like about each one. What I like about F3 is the things it shares with older Fallout games, Fallout New Vegas happens to be made more like one. Its built to be Fallout, not simpley just what Bethesda wants. In opinion when working on an IP that has a pre established fanbase you need to respect them and the IP they love, they're the ones buying your game. If you prefer F3 thats cool, more power to you.

    3 was limited by being the first 3D 1st person entry but the experience as a story is tip top with a well written map
    3 feels more like the Fallout 2 experience than NV does but perhaps due to NV engine limitations and obvious lack of depth and content due to time restrictions
    I have 500 hours in NV and have done and seen everything
    I have ~450 hours in 3 and still see new random encounters, dialogue trees and quest solutions

    Whats that old Bethesda saying? "Resist the urge to reload the save and you'll gain an experience where you're a character in this world and your choices give a much more interesting story than the endless line of perfection you would see otherwise" or something like that.
    F3 was my first real dip into that idea, i know people will say theres an "ideal path" and whatnot but i dont see it that way, as the ideal path is only slightly better than the alternative and every ending had a caveat of worry at the end. Hearing the narrator at the end telling my story and how everything i influenced unraveled was beautiful and its an experience ive missed since.

    It feels like Fallout 3 had more named characters who weren't directly relevant for quests (or were shopkeepers) than New Vegas. New Vegas had a lot of generically named "settlers" or "gamblers." There aren't a whole lot of people who you can talk to that you wouldn't have a good reason to talk to them at some point. On the other hand I can remember several characters in Fallout 3 where I don't recall there being anything to gain from talking to them at any point while I can only really think of a handful of named characters in New Vegas who didn't have at least an unmarked quest associated with them (or were doctors/shopkeepers).. It made the towns feel more lived in and vibrant in Fallout 3.

    It's partly because I'm a HUGE fan of Bethesda (they're my favorite studio/publisher in the industry) but personally, I consider all of their titles to be SO much better than the originals. I enjoy the entire series but if it weren't for the Bethesda games, I probably wouldn't have ever come to enjoy the series like I have. The originals are great games but Fallout 4 is my favorite game of all time, New Vegas is just a downright enjoyable RPG (yes, I know, different studio but it's built off of Bethesda's designs) and Fallout 3... I'm not kidding when I say that Fallout 3 changed my life. It changed my perspective of gaming and it changed my life.

    It showed me a different type of RPG, as I had only played RuneScape and the Elder Scrolls games up until that point. It showed me more about human nature, how evil and selfish we are but how everyone can overcome that evil and selfish nature if they try. It gave me probably close to 1k hours of escapism, allowing me to get away from my real-world troubles for a few hours and just recenter myself, both emotionally and in terms of my faith. One may find it strange that such a dark, bleak game like Fallout 3 could actually help me feel closer to God but it did. The entire series does that to me (as does The Elder Scrolls, but for different reasons), it helps me see myself in a more honest light so that I can be more honest with Him. But not only that, it's just downright FUN. Seeing places I've visited on vacations now destroyed after a nuclear war, there's just something about that connection which makes a game so special.

    Perhaps that's why I find Bethesda's Fallout games to be better: I've never gone further west than Tennessee when I was young and since I live in Pennsylvania, a lot of the locations BGS uses in their Fallout games end up seeming familiar due to similar locations. This feeling was accentuated even further in Fallout 76, the rural beauty of Appalachia reminds me not only of the area I live in, but it also reminds me of several places I've visited across this state. Fallout 4 gave me this feeling to a somewhat lesser degree (though more than Fallout 3's vanilla game; The Pitt gave me chills since Pittsburgh is my favorite city IRL) because, for some reason, it reminded me of my local area a LOT. Add to that a fantastic story and incredible gameplay and you get what became my favorite game of all time.

    But all-in-all, Fallout 3 will always be the game that changed my life and my perspective on gaming. It gets frustrating hearing all the haters trash Fallout 3, 4 and 76 but they're always going to be some of the greatest games I've ever played.

    A dissertation for the 21st century.
    I didn't have a problem with fallout 3, except that it took me about 40 hours to start having fun in it. New Vegas was fun right off the bat but I could also attribute that to already knowing 90% of the mechanics when I started.
    As far as story goes, I didn't feel like it was bad at all, all the quests seemed to be dripping with that trademark humor and multiple avenues of accomplishment. New Vegas seemed like a story bigger than you on the otherhand, so big you could go down a rabbit hole on the main quest and miss out other story lines that were just as well massive and fleshed out.

    Fallout 3 is excellent but NV I had more fun with. NV also has more replay potential.

    I could be watching a movie right now that's 1 hour and 50 mins, damn.

    I love both games but, damn. You definitely cherry picked some arguments to make FO3 look better.

      I think you're missing his point, entirely. He's not calling FO3 better than FNV in the way you might think. He's illustrating that FO3 is using a decentralized narrative, where interesting stories are located off the beaten path, as a reward for exploring the world. You seem to be looking for a comparison he didn't make.

      Annagram Gaming new Vegas he ONLY talks about main quests where FO3 he talks about the main AND side quests. That is not a fair comparison

      So you're thinking more an issue of accuracy of comparison, not cherry picking. OK, fine. But I don't see what you mean, he goes through multiple stages of showing how the main quests vs the side quests send you across the map in different ways. I'm not quite sure how this is unfair.

      Annagram Gaming I’m more specifically talking about how he talks about the main quests and branching paths with the maps. New Vegas takes you allll over the map and he ignores it. Where FO3 takes you over the map but then he starts talking about optional side quests...which makes no since if you’re comparing the two

      Be careful before you cry cherry picking. MATN is specifically noting there are *some* good things about FO3, and therefore, the examples reflect that.

    I’ve always felt the only reason ppl liked nv more than 3 is because they were either genuinely stupid or didn’t play the game outside of the main quest and didn’t even pay attention to that. It’s so obviously a much better game.

    I'm a die heart Fallout New Vegas fan but I actually like Fallout 3 quite a lot. Maybe its bias considering it was my first Fallout game, but the only big problem I have with it is that the endgame totally falls flat. It would have been nice to see multiple endings but at least have an ending where you can side with the Enclave. I've never liked the Brotherhood and it seems like lazy writing that you are eventually forced to side with them.

    I think the game could be good but I could never get past the first hour it was so boring to the point of mind numbing


    You gotta love Fallout 3
