Frustrated Fury Writes: Fallout 3 was a gigantic game back in 2008. It had great combat, fantastic writing, and an enthralling overall presentation. It was rather revolutionary at the time. Now in 2010, we get the follow-up to the 2008 hit with Fallout: New Vegas. Set four years after Fallout 3, you play as a courier in the New Vegas wasteland. The game begins with you being shot in the head and left for dead. Only thing is, you're not dead. You wake up in a small town hell-bent on revenge, if you want to play the game that way, of course.
