    Fallout 3 is more like a fan-fiction.

    Really? I did not mind them much. I was sort of glad to see them back (along with the geckos) in Mart's Mutant Mod.

    The eggs could be sterile ...

    Or to put it more bluntly: If aliens built the pyramids, started the world wars and were behind all of humanitys triumphs and failures, these triumphs and failures are of no consequence. We did not do it, we cannot learn from them, we have no responsibility.

    One, central part of the social commentary from the Fallout series is that empires wage war over access to resources. In modern times, however, such a war could lead to full scale nuclear war. Saying that aliens did it, implies that there is nothing wrong with those stockpiles of nuclear warheads, as humanity would never use them on their own. We should just duck and cover.

    After the ½ hour war, the question of who started it stops to be interesting. China and the US pressed each other into a situation where either could have started it. Both are to blame. But after that ½ hour, the really interesting question is how to survive? Or if it is better to bite a bullet?

    The player is a "can do everything Mary Sue", there are vampires, incredibly bad writing... You're right :D
    But the vampires were not gothy enough.
