I still haven't clocked GTA IV and I usually prefer to muck around than to try and unlock an extra costume or cut-scene in other titles. So when I find myself playing one game through to 3am in the morning - it usually means it's pretty captivating stuff.
Fallout 3 is a very difficult game to put down and the strange thing is, the game isn't even all that brilliant in terms of gameplay alone. It's basically just a typical mash-up of RPG elements and plenty of first-person shooting thrown in. Yet it's the overall presentation, level of detail and good old fashioned story-telling in Fallout 3 that cause it to be extremely addictive."
