Games that defined this Generation – Fallout 3

With the close of the current console generation fast approaching, we at the overseas connection are taking time to look back and relive some of those seminal 7th generation experiences. As I look back at the last eight years of gaming, one game stands out among the hundreds that really defined this generation, Fallout 3. (Culture, Fallout 3, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

Fallout was an amazing game.

Sure was. Wish New Vegas was as good. Too many bug and to me anyway, it didn't feel the same.

"Wish New Vegas was as good."

This was sarcastic... Right?

What exactly did Fallout 3 define this generation?

Hm... interesting concept marred by mediocre execution, poor writing, and a painfully stupid ending? That's pretty indicative of this generation.

I picked it up on the day it came out, knowing little to nothing about it other than fantastic reviews, which made it so much sweeter. Leaving that vault for the first time.... THE moment of this-gen for me.

for me, fantasic story. Loved the Elder Scrolls style gameplay. The only thing that let it down was the PS3 version which kept pausing when someone popped online or crashed altogether. Other than that it was one of the best mutiplatform experiences I've ever had the pleasure to play

Yes leaving the vault was great, it truly felt like the beginning of a true adventure. But you couldnt just go anywhere, as stronger wandering horrors could easily take you down ... Great map, lots to do , good skill tree , good companions made a great game...

Did anyone ever successfully make a good melee character?

Melee was actually kind of OP with the correct build.

As was unarmed.

One of the best games this generation definately. Fantastic story,great gameplay, hours of fun and if you play it on PC you get MODS. I've got Fallout 3 GOTY on PC and I love it. I recommend installing Fallout 3 Wonderers Edition. Great mod.
