How One Gamer Got a Piece of 'Fallout' Gaming History

Gameranx: "From Ellen Degeneres' hands to yours, Matthew Perry's copy of Fallout 3 finds a new owner." (Culture, Fallout, Fallout 3)

That is strange.

Indeed. I think she gave the game to one of her staffers, who probably just sold it.

Saw this on reddit and couldn't believe it.

Fallout 3, the game that has left the biggest impression on me this generation, other than Demon's Souls. I wish I could play it again for the first time.

I just started playing Fallout 3 for my first time about three days ago. I'm not sure why it's taken me this long to play it, being that I've owned it for years. Perhaps I was worried that it wouldn't live up to Fallout 1 & 2 (two of my favorite games of all time). When I heard they made it a first person style game, I was very worried. And I can't tell you how much I'm enjoying it right now. My time spent with multiple playthroughs of part 1 & 2 have served me well, because the game is so well made, that the transition was flawless. I knew exactly what character to make and there was little to no learning curve. Bethesda really did their homework with this masterpiece and the few bugs I've run into aside, this is on of those rare near-perfect games that has me addicted to my television 5-6 hours a day.

Hmm, I wouldn't say it's a masterpiece, just as I wouldn't call any of Bethesda's games a masterpiece. However, I do think it's probably the best game developed by Bethesda and, up until New Vegas came out, I had played no game as much as I had that game.

With that said, I do think you'd find more loyal to the Fallout franchise within New Vegas. It acknowledges the events of the previous games, something Fallout 3 did incredibly sparingly (No mention at all of the NCR? Or The Tribal from Arroyo? Very few mentions of the Vault Dweller were made, etc). The story is, at least in my opinion, better, though this is something that's very much a person-to-person thing. The setting is more Fallout-ish in New Vegas, etc.

Basically, I'm saying that if you're enjoying Fallout 3 as a fan of the franchise, you'll probably like New Vegas more.

But whatever, I'm getting way off-topic. I find it interesting how the title of this article calls this a piece of Fallout gaming history. Matthew Perry gave Ellen a copy of Fallout 3. I can understand how it's a lucky find and all that, but it's not like he found the very first copy of Fallout 3 ever produced or some pre-alpha/alpha version of Fallout 4 (speaking of which, I'm still pissed that wasn't announced at the VGAs). Or, eh, maybe I'm the only one doesn't doesn't find a copy of a game signed by a celebrity to be "gaming history." I probably am the only one, really.
