Having recently played Fallout 3 on my Playstation 3, I decided I wanted to go back to where the series first started on PC. Fallout is a game that was perhaps before my time (I was only 9 when it came out!) but that I still knew of in my early gaming days regardless. It is truly a cult classic of 90’s gaming.
Revisiting it today, it is amazing in retrospect how the basic blueprint of Fallout 3 follows the original so closely! (Especially since the original was made by Black Isle Studios and the latest instalment was made by Bethesda Softworks…) Obviously, much of what worked then still works now. But just how well has the original aged?
