I love making lists because A: they're fun, and B: they get people talking! Linked above are my picks, but what about yours? I mean, I put Mortal Kombat in the list... there's gotta be some crazy stuff you guys and gals would include in your Top 10. Is Carmageddon post-apocalyptic? Haha.

Haha, awesome. At first I was like Bole...? Then it hit me-- Oh yeah, that place!

That's a good list really. Not much to add. In Fallout3 and TLOU when you rummage through houses it gives you a feeling of complete isolation. And reading journals and diaries you really feel for the people that had their lives come to a sad end. Gut wrenching feeling really. But that's what makes those games great.

I can only imagine what Fallout 4 could look like on PS4/Xbox One/PC. They've probably got their work cut out for them visually also, with how amazing the modding community has made those games (FO3 and New Vegas) look over the years.

And I agree, the stories form within the diaries and leftovers from peoples' abandoned houses tell chilling tales within the broader scope of these adventures. It's great stuff from a storytelling perspective.

Star ocean did a great job of it actually, had WWIII a heavy nuclear war and then we advance space tech to generate jump technology and go planet hunting for a new world.

Oh wow, great pick! S.O. never crossed my mind but you're so right!
