Like a lot of people, I discovered Fallout via 3. Looking back, I can kinda see why most people on here didn't like it. I will say if it weren't for it, I would have never even heard of the games. What really got me into the series however was New Vegas. Initially, I didn't think much of it when I first played through it. However, nearly two years later, I gave it another shot and fell in love with it. It was then I decided to play through the original games. They took a bit to get used to, but I ended up really liking and appreciating them. I can't really decide which I like the best out of 1,2, and NV. They all have stuff I love, and stuff that I didn't really care for. They are all great games to me.
