    I've always wanted to buy an original copy of Fallout 1 and this year I finally decided to do it. I need some help to know if the one i picked is real or is it garagemade. Here it is.



    Sorry if incorrect section. Couldnt decide whether to post in the general-fallout or general-general section.

    What kind of box is that? Is it like a chunky DVD case or is is cardboard.

    Edit:

    Also is that a Win95 logo or Win 98?

    Logo seems to be Win 95 and the case looks like the ones they use for most games today.

    Though I do have some 10-11 years old games with cases like that.

    Does it have an ISBN? Get a closeup shot of the barcode if you can.

    The case looks familiar to me although doesn't match any of the ones I currently own (I had a couple others), but best way to verify is get the codes and then do a search on sites like Amazon.

    Thats the picture provided by the vendor. I have no others.

    Well I decided to risk and purchase it anyway. Thanks all.

    Oh I thought you meant you already bought it. Well once it arrives, check the barcode/ISBN to see if it's legit :P

    I think you're okay though, I'm pretty sure I've seen that case before. If it turns out to be fake, PM me; I have several copies that I don't need.

    If memory servers me right, and I could be wrong:

    The first Run's of Fallout and Fallout 2 shipped in cardboard big box and a CD Jewel case inside, it was subsequent ones that moved to the DVD case style around 1999/2000 it was common for it to be done this way, I have a Early Doom 95 big box I bought from The Chip Shop (Local game store), and one I got from a bit box (possibly Game) on 3 CD's in a DVD box both where bought about 8 months apart.
