Nuclear Armageddon done right

Fallout 3's great success, suggests the Globe and Mail's game blogger, is its utterly terrifying world, which reminds him of the nightmares he would have of nuclear war and mutants as a child. From the story:

"Most importantly, though, it leaves its predecessors' old-school 2-D maps of ruined California cities behind for a massive, seamless 3-D recreation of Washington D.C., and in doing so captures the feeling of a futuristic wasteland better than any game to come before. Players wander through massive heaps of rubble, circumnavigate burnt-out buildings, swim through a radioactive Potomac, explore equally rad-heavy sewers, and visit famous real-world landmarks and museums. It's this stunningly believable world that does most of the heavy lifting in terms of transporting players' minds into the nuclear war ravaged future...

...While sinfully fun to play, Fallout 3 is also something of a commercial speaking against the perils of nuclear war. I'm quite glad to have experienced the virtual as opposed to the real thing." (Fallout 3, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

would this game
be similar to Oblivion? Never got into RPG's before, but I just recently bought Oblivion and I fell in love. My understanding is that it's a Western RPG as opposed to a JRPG? Please someone help me out.

Yup.
Very similar to Oblivion. Just swap out the mythical baddies for mutants.
