Some games are hyped up for the sake sales, other games receive the hype because the gamers just can't get enough of it. Fallout 3 is the kind of game that falls into the second category; where the history of the series speaks for this upcoming game's current popularity. And just like previous games in the series, the story centers around a player-created character, with the interactive world unfolding around the custom avatar. Players will modify seven aptitudes and choose up to three special skill traits out of a total of 14 selectable traits. Most traits are often helpful in a number ways, while other traits prove to be comically morbid or grotesquely entertaining with the results they produce. For instance, a long-standing skill trait in the Fallout series has been 'bloody mess'. This skill trait enables the common occurrence of player enemies to die in gory, unsightly ways."
