Thunderbolt: "Fallout on the PC holds a special meaning to many gamers. While Fallout 3 was undoubtedly a good game, the drastic change between 2 and 3 was too much for some to bear. And with good reason: the shift from a 2D CRPG to an open-world shooter RPG couldn’t have been made without some dramatic tinkering. The issue many had, however, didn’t even have to do with the gameplay. There was a large contingent of fans who simply felt that Bethesda missed the point. Fallout 3 was full of black-and-white morality plays and maudlin characters, and a world that looked like it had been bombed five minutes beforehand, not two centuries ago."
