Listen up kiddo's while grandpa tells you a story.... I was a student back in 97/98 and was in a local games shop and was looking at the Fallout 1 box (back when PC games came in large cardboard boxs). I just looked at the pictures of this isometric game with guns and wrongfully assumed the game was going to be like the old crusader no remorse games (that's where my avatar is from BTW). I of course didn't read anything and got sucked in by the pretty pictures and bought the game. Later that day I was like WTF? This is a turn-based RPG not an isometric shooter, luckily I liked RPGs and back then turn-based games were still somewhat common. It didn't take long to realise this game was a total gem. I still remember holding that box in my hands looking at it, I was either 18 or 19 at the time and I'm 42 now. Damn, I got old. I can still feel the sense of awe at the fallout vibe, when looking at this old computer with tape spools and the description saying it was a highly advanced computer lol I remember feeding Dogmeat for the first time and him following me afterward, I blew so many stimpacs keeping him alive in those forcefields at the army base. No one was gonna kill him on my watch! I remember the fear in the fallout community when bethsadia took over the IP and the memes of 'it's just gonna be Morrowind with guns' I spent years working on mods (Mutants Rising rules!), this game somehow impacted my life. I meet some incredible people in this very community (SNorth springs to mind. https://www.goodreads.com/author/show/2465319.Stephen_A_North ) Damn, this game, this community left a mark on my life. Far more than I would have ever imagined possible. I'm still waiting for Mutants Rising to be released, get to to it guys. Fun fact, the original plot for Mutants Rising had to radically change after it was stolen by a certain development house. The story was nearly identical to an official story. We never found the leak, but suspected a plant on the team. No I don't have any proof, those original design documents will be long gone. I'll just say that originally you started in a prison and escaped after it was attacked. We shifted the location to a town but kept an attack as a starting off the main plot.
